AIMS is designed for Veterans and military Service members but can be used by anyone coping with anger problems. The AIMS app is based on the Anger and Irritability Management Skills online self-help course (http://www.veterantraining.va.gov/aims/). The app provides you with education about anger, opportunities for finding support, the ability to create an anger management plan, anger tracking, and tools to help manage angry reactions. You can also create custom tools based on your preferences, and can integrate your own contacts, photos, and music. The AIMS app may be used alone, or in combination with the online course or in-person therapy
AIMS was created by VA’s National Center for PTSD and VA’s Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.

Please Fix (App Unresponsive)
I used this app before to help assist me with my temper and to track my aggressive episodes. Now that I am running IOS 12.1 it just closes and does not open. This is like having a counselor in your pocket at all times!
DEVs please fix as this app was VERY beneficial to my mental health and coping mechanisms.
Flexible helpful tool for anger management in adult autism
I found this app after reading an article in the medical literature about the effectiveness of simple interventions such as an anger thermometer and anger log for people who have Asperger’s (Autism Spectrum Disorder level 1). I have ASD and alexithymia (difficulty recognizing/ distinguishing my emotions) and this app has the precise tools that are likely to be effective based on the research I read. It has already proven, after a short period of use, to be helpful for me in identifying what triggers my anger and what signs indicate growing anger before I have an outburst.
My suggestion for improving it would be, make it possible for users to edit or delete our own additions to the lists of triggers, emotions, sensations, etc. Or, if it already has this capability, make it more evident how to do so. Thanks.
This app is truly amazing. I seriously don’t understand why someone would give it a 1/5. It not only abolishes my anger but has improved my relationships with my family members. If you are struggling with anger issues I strongly recommend this app. While it may not be for everyone, it certainly is for me.
