Two UI Breakdowns of the week

Every week, we'll dissect an application/webapp and distill it down to two UI learnings we can take away from that app. 

This week's chosen Application is How we Feel

How We Feel is a free journal for your well-being created by scientists, designers, engineers, and psychologists. Over time, you will learn precise words to describe how you feel, spot trends and patterns, and practice simple strategies to regulate your emotions in healthy ways.

How We Feel
The How We Feel Project is a non-profit working to help everyone better understand their own emotions.

Breakdown #1

The core workflow of this app is to log our emotions at any point during the day. The workflow is optimised for users to identify and articulate their emotions quickly, so users can learn to understand themselves better.

See a quick audit below ‡

Breakdown #2

The 2nd core workflow of this app is to see a report of our emotions so we can understand our patterns over a period of time. The report and charts are pretty robust and allows us to deep dive into our patterns.
