Poppy / Cognitive

Cognitive is an app designed to empower time-pressured adults to better understand and control different aspects of their wellbeing. It paints a picture of their life by syncing and collating any data that the user may already be tracking via different apps or devices. It aggregates this data to produce a holistic, easy-to-understand overview of the user’s lifestyle in relation to their mental and physical experiences. In this way, it will maintain an automated track of how that user’s behaviour, experiences and emotions interact. People with mental health disorders are often advised to keep logs like this, but doing it manually requires time, effort and motivation. With its automated process and insights, Cognitive users can quickly learn how to make tiny adjustments to effortlessly optimise their lives.
