Feelings in a Flash – An Android App For Kids To Track And Share Their Moods

Feeling in a Flash is an Android app by teens and for teens that enables children to track and share their feelings with friends on Facebook. The free app helps children „to remember the good times (getting ready for parties, going out and going shopping)“ and to get „support in the sad times (sress, worries and misunderstandings)“.

Feelings in a Flash is designed to

  • Help children keep in touch with friends and understand better why they feel the way they do by sharing when they feel good and when they feel sad.
  • Make it easy to share photos of how they feel and photos of things that are making them happy or sad.
  • Swap pintags with friends. Pintags are like badges and the children can get them from friends or share them with friends if they want to wish them “Good Luck” or say “Sorry”.

Feelings in a Flash was developed with the help from Apps for Good and won the ‘Well Being’ category sponsored by the Nominet Trust.
