How do we perceive time from day to day? What insights can we draw?

Everyone has thought about how a day has either flown by, or dragged on forever. Designed as a simple conceptual exercise, Relativity helps people track their moods across time and discover patterns about how one’s perception of time changes from day to day. The app also lets users compare their data globally. In this way we might discover interesting macro patterns in how people view the passage of time.

A simple daily journal.
The app will remind you to enter your day: first it asks about your mood, then how you feel about the length of the day. If you leave an optional note, you’ll be able to review your past in greater detail and hopefully reflect on how different experiences affect your life.
