MoodMod aims to help those who want to assess their psychiatric mood and to rapidly get assistance and support to understand their moods and what others might be experiencing. With the help of the Ionic and Slim frameworks the developer was able to build the responsive hybrid web application.
The use of languages such as PHP, MySQL, AngularJS, HTML and CSS the application allows users to rate their mood and set emotions based on their mood. The user also has the option to browse through a psychiatric notes feature which allows them to view personal notes from psychiatric peers. The system has adopted a ReST API with the help of the Slim framework so that users can register and login, the application has a password protection encryption system due to the user’s sensitive data. The AngularJS language works with the Ionic framework and allows users to smoothly navigate from page-to-page with the help of Angular’s UI-Routing. Through the Cordova framework which is integrated with the Ionic framework, developers are able to build native applications. Cordova performs as a wrapper around Ionic, fundamentally wrapping up the web in a native layer. The users are able to view the application through means of web and mobile devices with Android in particular.
The developer found through end user testing that the users’ performance on the application was much better than expected. The resultant application was tested by users and found to be working satisfactorily with a strong user experience.
