The Happy Barometer project has attracted the attention of the global media and has astonished the world with its innovative solutions again. The app was developed by the Lemon Labs Company and scans a person's face to determine the user's mood. In addition to the usual method of use, when a person rates his happiness level on a scale from one to ten, the app user will be able to determine their own or their friends' happiness level just by taking photos of their own or their friends' faces.

"We are very happy about developing an innovative product that integrates with the latest technologies. The Happy Barometer project has attracted a lot of attention around the world since its start-up in July 2013. This innovative mobile app will allow its users to capture their own and their friends' moods easily and playfully", said Artūras Jonkus, the initiator of the Happy Barometer project and one of the IQ Polls start-up founders.

"Happiness has a significant impact on economics, people's wealth, a better life and more. So we loved to have a chance to build a tool which enables anyone to rate and track their happiness in a very simple way. It's a small step in making this world a better place", said Tomas Dirvonskas, CEO of Lemon Labs.

"Cooperation in creating the Happy Barometer application provided us with the possibility to demonstrate how universal our services could be", said Denis Kochetkov, CEO of SkyBiometry.

The residents of 123 cities around the world can already capture their moods. The users can see the world's top five positive cities and the world's top five negative ones, and they can share their results in social networks. A Happy Barometer app for mobile devices using the Android platform will appear in the near future.
