Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been waiting for this app to come out since August of 2017, and downloaded it the day it was released. since I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time, I wanted to make sure that I fairly evaluated the app before giving a review. safe to say, I love it. I’m someone who really struggles with self care and keeping track of the things that I do, and this helps so much. it’s super cute, and unlike other self care apps, it works just fine without the extra features that you have to purchase (although those are amazing too). you can write things down on the go when you don’t have your journal, and look back at them later if you need to. the self set reminders to do simple self care tasks have saved my unwashed hair more times than I can count. this app is my lord and savior. 10/10 would aloe bud again.

Just one thing,,,
I'm a person who gets overwhelmed very easily, but my shabby mental (and physical) health requires constant mindfulness on my behalf. A lot of self-care apps I feel offer too many uh,,, 'helpful' features.
As soon as I saw the icon for this app, I knew I wanted it (as cliche as that sounds). Retro/8bit themed apps, I've found, are usually more simplistic, and this one was pretty much everything I'd hoped it would be. It's very cute and calming so I don't feel stressed with all the things I need to do when I open it, and it's super easy to navigate. Like, too easy. I like that you have the option to either just check in on a task or to fill out an actual short journal entry for it.
Just one thing— I'm using this to also keep up with my medication. Since I'm very forgetful, I chose to fill out a prompt each day with how my meds effect me because it would be helpful for whenever I go to see my doctor. However, I'd love it if I could find all my journal entries for one task in one place? It's a little difficult to track how my meds have been effecting me when I have to scroll through the activities I've done every single day to get to each entry. Maybe create an option to view all your journal entries underneath the title of each task when you open it? That would really tie it all together and make it five stars for me.
The app of my mentally ill dreams
I love the Aloe Bud app so much. I found the mental health resources to be helpful, though I would have liked to see Dissociative Disorders and Transgender Lifeline included. The mechanics are intuitively useful, and I appreciate the interface design/aesthetic, which has noticeablely impacted my frequency and ease of use. Please continue developing this app. It’s already really great, but I’m excited for updates and improvements.
My request is an added feature, perhaps for a future update. This app would be a life changer if it came with an iPhone widget. The app is designed around reminders, which are most effectively utilized with the help of a widget. The accessibility of an added widget seems in tune with the app’s intent, especially if it were well made (some widgets exist for the sake of saying it exists).
Bottom line: must-have, hella cute
