CNET News Video: Tech Minute: Apps to record your dreams

1:08 /

We all do it. But few of us remember doing it. We're talking about dreaming and how those mystical moments can seem so clear one moment, so forgotten the next. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on two apps that can help us keep a record of our dreams to find patterns and clues.

According to some research, up to 95 percent of dreams are forgotten as soon as we wake up. If you're interested in retaining some of the bizarre details that have happened in your sleepy stage, I recommend downloading one of these two apps. Dreamboard is a free simple to use tool that lets people record all details of their subconscious, fill in your mood, the emotions you felt, certain colors that were strong, the role you played and other details like things, places and people. You can also narrate your dream to tell the whole story. Overtime, the App will chart and analyze your dreams to give you an overall interpretation of what happens when you shut your eyes. For $1.99, Morpheus dreams helps you understand measured dream themes by providing a dream dictionary. As you type-in your dream journals, certain keywords will become highlighted so you can look up their thematic meaning. For example, dreaming about stairs or staircases are a symbol for challenge and transformation. Again, you can keep these dreams private or choose to share them with your social networks. Although, think twice. Some of these dreams can't get awfully personal. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, cnet.com for CBS News.
