According to researchers at the Harvard Medical School, “Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.” Grateful was created to make expressing gratitude in your life both easy and fun, as well as to remind you, during those down moments, of the many blessings in your life (that you've documented in Grateful).

*Daily Prompts to Start You Off*
With its simple interface and daily prompts, Grateful is designed to make reflection and giving thanks both a joyful and easy process. Daunted by a blank page? Not quite sure where to start? Grateful will greet you with one question, such as. 'What made you smile today'? or 'What made today a good day?'. All you have to do is answer. It can be a simple word. Or a simple paragraph. Grateful allows for both. You can also add a photo to support your thoughts.

*Easy to Browse your Past Entries*
Grateful's simple journal feed lets you browse your entries by TIME or by PROMPT. Want to see all the things that made you smile this year? Jump to those entries in your timeline. Want to see what your state of mind was last January? Jump to that month in your timeline.

*Our Prompts or Yours*
Grateful gives you the flexibility to make the journal truly yours. When sit down to write an entry, Grateful will start you off with a prompt. You have the option of:
1.) Answering the prompt
2.) Choosing a different prompt
3.) Writing your own prompt

Very affirming

Fantastic app. The prompts are really good: short but perfectly formed, and encouraging you to reflect on the world you’re moving through and what’s good in it (which is super when you’re feeling down about yourself, and often reveals little things that actually speak against negative self-perception). The journal encourages you to be brief, which really does a good job of making it easy to write something (and sometimes you just keep writing). And the app’s design and interface are really nice, which makes using it a pleasure, and it’s very affirming to look back over your previous entries in the nicely-formatted timeline. Great job devs.

Grateful for small things

A simple app that makes keeping a Gratitude journal easy. I set an alert for every evening to remind me to think of something I’m grateful for. The app asks one of four questions - what grateful for, what looking forward to, what made you smile, what made you laugh - which helps add a bit of variety and stops it getting too serious. You can add photos and tags and you soon build up quite a collection of happy thoughts and memories. A great way to keep your glass half full.

Grateful for Grateful

This is a brilliant app. It's so easy to use and getting in the habit of using it is no trouble at all. The interface is simple, intuitive and elegant. The ability to include photos in posts is brilliant and I often use this as it brings to life moments that make me smile. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. The full price of £4 is a little high but for such a beautifully designed app with these features I think it is worth it. Great job guys!
