Actually, the app is called Stress @ Work, but you get the idea. Here’s CNN.com with the deatils of this cool new app:
Would it help you manage your stress level to get a warning that the text message you’re about to read is your boss or partner chewing you out? The creators of a new mobile app think so.
Stress @ Work is an Android app developed by a student at England’s University of Portsmouth. It color-codes incoming messages on Facebook, Twitter and via text, using their choice of language to predict their tone.
Green means positive, blue is neutral and red is a warning of potential nastiness.
Masters student Lorraine Chambers said she created the app so people know whether to expect to feel better or worse after checking in.
“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,” Mohamed Gaber, a senior lecturer at the university, added in a news release.
What’s the color code for death threat I wonder? Kidding, kidding. When this app becomes available in September, it will be interesting to see how (and how well) it was tested under real world conidtions.
