Ratings and Reviews
No in-app purchase
This game is great and helps me out a lot. I bought the in-app purchase and it didn’t unlock anything else. I tried contacting the app developer twice and they haven’t responded to my emails. It’s been a week. Apple is going to give my money back. Ridiculous. I’ll change my review when they finally fix it and I could get what I paid for.

This app was awesome!! I really feel it was making a difference in my day to day attitude. Then something happened and the text boxes are only blank narrow rectangles. I truly hope this will be fixed in the very near future.
Idea good but going in wrong direction
While the concept is a good, I wish it had a customize feature. My concept of good is up and what is bad is down. Where you should throw the trash (down) is a big "habit" to overcome. Wish the app came with a choice of how a person perceives good vs bad. It's a physical action to reinforce thought process. Don't make use relearn everything. Will stop using because of it.
