Abstract

Depression is a major affective disorder which influences autobiographical memory processing abilities. Mobile phones hold great potential for delivering effective self-help treatments that target depression and for assisting users’ memory processing. This work explores commercial apps that support users’ everyday challenges associated with depression and in particular memory processing. Our results highlight the current functionalities of top-rated apps on major marketplaces, which could be used to inform novel functionalities, better tailored to address depression-related memory issues and consequently reduce users’ depressive symptoms.
