    Now track every emotion with these apps, be it of your baby or your dog

    Do you know what your dog is feeling when it wags its tail? Or have you faced a situation when you simply had no idea why your baby was crying? Tracking emotions is a tough job and that’s where these apps help.
    IntraFace: Launched late last year, this app requires you to take a picture of your face and upload it. By decoding the position of your lips, eyes and brows, it can recognise five emotions—sadness, disgust, surprise, happiness and neutrality. Developed by the Human Sensin Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University, it is especially useful for drivers—reading their expressions and warning them before their concentration slips. Details: itunes.apple.com
    Infant Cries Translator: Of the many baby cry translator apps, this is the latest. Launched last week, it is developed by the National Taiwan University Hospital Yunlin and compares your baby’s cries with its cloud database of over 2,00,000 crying sounds—to differentiate between hunger, sleep or pain. Details: play.google.com, itune.apple.com
    T2 Mood Tracker: Based on six emotions—anxiety, depression, general well-being, head injury, post traumatic stress and stress—it allows users to rate themselves using emotion sliders and pain scales. They can also input things that affected their mood during the day. Using the information, the app (launched last October) makes graphs and records patterns for future references.

    TailTalk: This upcoming app comes with a sensor tag that needs to be fitted on to your dog’s tail. It then senses motion and tells you how your pet is feeling, based on the direction in which it wags its tail—left usually denotes negative feelings and right, happiness and excitement. The app also makes daily graphs to compile weekly data of how your dog was feeling. Slated to launch later this year. Details: play.google.com, itunes.apple.com
