An app that allows you to create music to capture your mood and express how you feel. 

Cove is a personal journal that helps you to give substance to complicated thoughts and feelings through music. It's a great tool if you like being creative and find it difficult to express yourself in words. Creations can be saved as they are, or attached to a personal diary to give them greater context. You can also share your creations to communicate how you feel to friends. 

Cove has been used as a form of music therapy or in conjunction with therapy.
