Happiness? There’s an app for that


We all know there’s apps for everything – from making stupid lightsaber sounds to stalking women, but did you know that there’s an app for happiness? The app doesn’t actually make you happy (you don’t press a button and get giddy all of a sudden) but helps you to track what makes you happy throughout your day. The app systematically tracks your happiness by sending you alerts throughout the day and allows you to pinpoint what factors bums you out, and what makes you grin stupidly throughout the day. The app is part of Matt Killingsworth’s doctoral research at Harvard University, so you have him to thank once you realize your crippling planking habit is the root of all your worries.
