Sell my mobile: New mobile app can help sort good news from bad
A mobile phone app which can help prevent the user from having a bad day by predicting the mood of an incoming message has been developed.
Lorraine Chambers, a Master's student from the University of Portsmouth, has created the app which will automatically colour code messages so people known if they are likely to make them feel good or bad.
The development is aimed at preventing people being surprised by an angry or hostile message from Twitter, Facebook or text.
It is hoped it would also allow smartphone users to prepare for bad news and allocate time to receive it.
Senior lecturer at the University's school of computing Mohamed Gaber said it is important for people to take action so as not to get unnecessarily stressed by negative messages.
"The ultimate objective of this application is to make the user aware of the negative contents they receive so they are able to manage their stress in the best possible way," he added.
