I don’t write reviews often

I don’t write reviews often but this app really deserves one, this app was designed to spark ideas and initiate creativity, and since I write on my free time so I downloaded it, but what surprised me is that this app actually helped with my anxiety more than helping me as a writer..
I was almost having an anxiety attack once and I was just going through my phone for anything to calm me down and stop me from thinking of what was causing me the anxiety, I was almost in tears already, until I laid eyes on this app and I opened it and started swiping cards, I was getting calmer as I was thinking of the cards content instead of the anxiety attack, and it actually calmed me...
So I don’t just use it for its sole purpose, but for my mental health too! And I was wondering if you could add a free mental health pack with nice things written inside of them too! -though I hope it’d be free hehe-

Wow...we're so glad to hear that brainsparker was able to help calm you down at such a difficult time. It shows that when you trigger your brain with random prompts, it forces you to think of different things. We've taken your suggestions on board and good luck with your writing!

Some suggestions, but overall good app!

This app is good. First of all, people in the reviews said the cards were dumb and didn't have any thought or creativity put in them. Maybe they don’t, but it helps me so much!! Just taking my mind off of things and reading cool quotes and looking at pictures of reality puts me right back into a writing mood. I also love that I can download the pictures to my Photos so I always have them right there. I do have a request though. I think it would be awesome if you could submit your writings to the app and get constructive criticism back, or you could submit it were anyone could read your writing. Being open to the public’s writing I think would also provide tons of inspirations for stories, so if you did that it would just expand your app. I understand it would be difficult to make such huge updates like my suggestions, but like I said they are just things I think would make the app more fantastic. Thank you for taking the time to read!

Great but I want more

I think this app is a great start. Lots of options lots of inspirations but I think there should be more! I would love to see a card pack of just pictures. Amazing high quality and interesting perspective photos! I also would like a pack where, as the user, can make our own inspirational cards. I think this would be a good touch. I would use the app more if it had this

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for your feedback. We do have a picture card pack on the development list, so let's see if we can bring that forward. And we're definitely looking at user generated cards. So we'll keep you posted!
