app for that.

“Since his diagnosis as bipolar in 2002, computer consultant Adrian Cunanan has worked hard to learn to regulate his mood swings through medication, meditation, exercise and careful sleep monitoring.

“After years of denial, I was able to accept the diagnosis and then persevere through the process of learning to both manage and thrive in life despite the condition,” he reports.

Now, he wants to help others facing mood disorders thrive as well. His Brooklyn-based startup, ThriveStreams, has just released its first product, an app that takes a gamified approach to mood tracking for those with conditions such as depression and bipolar disorder, an illness with alarmingly high suicide rates, according to many statistics.

The free app for iOS, ThriveTracker, collects user data on activities such as meditation, exercise and journaling, as well as therapy attendance and quality and amount of sleep. Users who check in consistently can earn rewards such as product samples, gift cards and MP3 downloads, redeemed through a third-party rewards provider, Kiip. They can even earn rewards for checking in with the app daily.”
