Abstract

The emerging popularity of so-called “Wellness Apps” (mobile applications designed to assist users in pursuing a healthy lifestyle by encouraging them to make positive lifestyle decisions) has presented an interesting challenge to mobile application developers. Our application incorporates step and sleep tracking algorithms. In addition, the application tracks the user’s mood throughout the day, and, using this data, the user can monitor the correlation between his or her exercise, sleep habits, and overall mood. In this project a Wellness App for the Android platform, SAM Fitness, is developed and tested to track these factors.
