Can’t rate highly enough

I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for many years. When I’ve tried to create a mood diary in the past it has always been forgotten and ignored as it’s a pain to do during a busy day (work, family life etc). I’m honestly able to do this when I make a cup of tea, pop to the loo, or even whilst walking around as it’s on my phone and watch. Now that I’ve been doing it a few weeks, which is a personal record, I’m completing the insights and identifying the patterns that cause my anxiety. I’m also being forced to acknowledge when my mood is good, which I think we are all guilty of doing! I adore this app and have recommended it to several friends already. Well done to the creators for making something that has clearly been thought through carefully and then created in as sympathetic a way as possible. Well done

Interesting but forget I don’t like to remember the things that upset me

It’s a good way to find trends in my estimations based on when I feel low and stuff. I’ve suffered from depression, anxiety, manic periods and a mixture of all 3 at the same time since I was 11 so it’s good to have a record of triggers and other external factors to my moods.
My only issue is that I don’t like to look back on my feelings and struggle to keep records of my thought processes so seeing my comments are a trigger in themselves. I think I would have preferred to just see a tally chart for my emotions at various times of the day and then have the option of seeing more details only if I choose to.
I think it would be a good tool for people with unexplained anxiety etc but not for someone like me who struggles with constant emotional difficulties.
I kind of regret purchasing this app and advise you to think carefully about whether a detailed account of your emotions would actually be beneficial before you spend £4 on it

This is a great app!

I’ve only just started using this app and I think it’s such a wonderful idea and asks you the simple things people may not do in your everyday life like ‘What’s happening at the moment?’.
If you’re more of a listener in life it’s a perfect way to express all the thoughts and feelings you might not get the chance to express often.
It also helps reassess your situation and look at things from a different perspective which is really great for me and then you have the opportunity to reevaluate your initial feelings when you first started your entry which I think is good as more often than not those feelings are generally more positive.
What I really would love for this app is another version for the Ipad. There is another app I’m using along side this for the same price called Grateful and it’s really set out well so I can view it in landscape mode and be able to use my keyboard.
Currently I view the questions in portrait mode, type using my keyboard with the words going up and on the side. It’s not a biggy as the app is great but thought it might be an idea to enhance the experience.
I understand it’s created more for mobile phone usage but I think for lengthy entries it’s easier to type on a keyboard rather than mobile keypads and truly get across all you need to say.
