Game changer

I got this app on a whim. Yea I had tried gratitude journals in the past, and had not found it fulfilling to have a dedicated journal/app for it in the past, but this app surprised me. It asked so little of me that it was so easy to find the time for it. Eventually it was a go to at the start of every lunch break at my unfulfilling job. 5 minutes where I could stop, reflect, and rewire my brain so simply with just 3 things a day. This app and the positive psychology/CBT exercises helped me breakdown the insurmountable gloom of my depression and anxiety by allowing me to finally find a few minutes a day where I can thrive. Thriving is contagious, and I have enjoyed seeing those few minutes a day grow over weeks and months to a safe place where I can be happy in the face of an uncertain world. DO download this app. DO TYPE 3 things in it a once a day. WAIT to see what follows. You may be surprised and see your gratitude for what you have grow in new ways.

Really good app!

First of all, I love this app. It is really good and I look forward to using it. The only reason I’m giving this four stars is because when I went to update the app, all of my entries suddenly disappeared. I was completely confused at first. I talked to who I believe is the creator of the app, and he apologized multiple times (which I think is very good!) and said that the only way to get them back is restore my device rom the latest backup. I really don’t know how to do that, but I’ll continue to use the app like always. Maybe in another update, there could be accounts for the data to be stored.

Hi there, that was me (the creator) you spoke to the other day.

I'm so sorry your entries were deleted. I take full responsibility for that, I shipped a bug by accident that affected a small number of people and unfortunately you were one of them.

I'm warmed to hear that you will continue using the app and I will look into secure ways to backup user's entries in the future. The reason they are not currently backed up is to maximize privacy and prevent 3rd parties from having access. But I will look into secure solutions to prevent this from happening again.

I appreciate the feedback, please let me know if theres anything that I can ever do to help in the future 🙏

Thankful = Mindful

The app design is great making it super easy to use! I have a reminder set each day so I can enter what I’m grateful for and it always makes me smile when I actually stop for a minute during my busy, stressful day to think about something I am lucky to have in my life, no matter how small. I’ve noticed that this has increased my mindfulness as well as improved my overall mood. Knowing I’ll get that reminder to write something, I find myself focusing on positives more. I’m thankful for this app!!!!
