Beyond Verbal, the Emotions Analytics has just released this new app that "extracts, decodes, and measures a full spectrum of human emotions from their raw voice in real time as they speak". Beyond Verbal says that the app is based on "18 years of research by physicists and neuropsychologists, who studied more than 70,000 test subjects in more than 30 languages". Beyond Verbal launched in May, 2013 and has closed $3.8 million round of funding. Beyond Verbal allows third-party developers access through its API.

I took it for a test run in a couple of situations with good results. Talking to a favorite client ? Happy. After a workout ? Creative! Moodies analyzes a single user's voices at a time and provides an analysis of the user's mood. The app can, after just 15 seconds identify what they call the "overall mood", "primary mood" and a "secondary mood". It can listen continuously with gaps or do a quick "freeze frame" of your mood You can record the sound bytes in "vault" and if you feel like sharing, tweet your mood or post it to Facebook.

Moodies is free and for now, only available for iOS.
