Some bugs, great nonetheless

Yes, there are some bugs. Sometimes, as I have come to learn, there are things that I cannot control in life. I am confident that the developer is working on the bugs.
One of the reasons I like this application, is that through its use, I not only have come to recognize my anger moments, as well as when my friends and counterparts also are in their anger moments. I don’t comment on this to them, as that is not my place to do so. I become quiet and reflect that my buddy needs some time to calm down. I am not here to fix him.
I’ve come across some bugs and while my initial reaction is to respond with an annoying stance I find myself laughing at myself, it’s almost as if it was planned by the developer as another way to recognize my anger and blaming others.

In closing, I like the application, I believe with time the bugs will be ironed out and I am confident with continued usage I will become a better manager of my emotions. Kudos to the development team. Well done! Keep up the amazing work.

Great but limited, offer more free activities pleasee

When I first used this it was great. The articles they offered and the activities were insightful and helped me realize a few things that i need to work on myself without making me feel bad about myself. It also let me do reflections on any event and what I can work on. But I feel that the reflections part needs a place that I can add any notes to the event or things that were successful for me. I also feel that the app does a great job in recognizing in areas that i need to develop but it doesnt give me clear way on how to do it without having to pay money. The app helps in recognizing what you need to develop, but the app gives general areas of improvement that seem too general to be useful. They show case other activities but you cant look at them without paying the money for activities or other features (which is understandable). In general once you finish the three(?) free activities, you need to pay for more. The only thing left that you can really do it document events that made you angry and it gives a general list of things to do for future anger.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your honest review! Regarding your point on reflection, you can actually add some notes at the end of the reflection, there will be a prompt to do so. And for activities, we will take into account your suggestion to have more free activities. Yes we do have Ahead Pro only activities, but we have plenty free daily activities! :)

Feel free to reach out to me to discuss this further at dimas@ahead-app.com

We hope you continue to give us a try and we can continue to support you in your journey😊

Pretty cute little app to help teach good behavior

I found this app very helpful, I’m working on being less reactive and changing my communication style/identifying my feelings all at once so I thought this would help bc someone not being able to name a feeling leads to frustration and anger. I love the cited quotes and works presented here and the helpful tips being kept in the toolkit. There’s a ton of room to improve though. A simple thing like push notifications that state your calm-down habits would be one. Second quiz me on my toolkit items or even what I just learned in a section or chapter helps to reinforce the learned information, especially for me-types who are very “if I can’t see it it does not exist” to change a behavior I have to practice it but to change it I need to remember it! Also I’d love to see easier ways to plug in “reaction moments” I know it’s there but it’s too many clicks to find and enter how I responded to a specific moment. Small, but dislike how the progress button changes when you’ve filled in a blank and want to move to the next screen. I’ve really enjoyed the sweet ui and characters.

Thank you for your kind words, feedback and suggestions, Julez! :)
