one of the most important things that can help a person suffering from this disorder other than people around them is apps that can be used to remind medications, meditations, and track mood.
I tried to search for the best ones that are available for people and are very useful and easy to use. Here, I will post 5 best apps that I found and their uses, which are both highly rated on AppleStore and GooglePlay. and designed to help you track your moods and manage your condition. They can help you gain detailed insight into your feelings and how to live with them.

#3 Sleep Cycle
Promoted as an “intelligent alarm clock,” it analyzes your sleep and wakes you in the lightest sleep phase (we all have four sleep phases during one cycle), a natural way to wake up feeling rested and relaxed. It also keeps your data so you can see your sleeping trends. It even tracks when you snore. In the Premium version ($39.99/yr), as well as helping you fall asleep faster, you can track your moods, see how coffee or eating too much, stress or the weather affects your sleep quality.
According to the developer Couch to 5k is an interactive motivational tool for beginners. It supports you on a nine-week journey, just 20 – 30 min. three times a week to finish your first race.

This mood-tracking app allows users to monitor their moods on six pre-loaded scales (anxiety, stress, depression, brain injury, post-traumatic stress, general well-being). Custom scales can also be built. Users rate their moods by swiping a small bar to the left or to the right. The ratings are displayed on graphs and notes can be recorded to document daily events, medication changes and treatments, which can help health care providers make treatment decisions.
Overall they seem to be very helpful apps for a bipolar person to use. These are very essential things to manage, like taking medication, having enough sleep, breathing while they don't feel calm, and mood tracker. But What I am looking for are apps that can be used for couples, and give them more freedom to control and manage their situations.
