A convenient resource!

Gottman has been a great resource for my marriage, and my husband and I were both excited to see this app. It’s an easy way to find new conversation topics and to improve our communication skills. Even better that this tool is something we can easily keep accessible in our phones. The app has been simple to use and we’re looking forward to exploring more of the topics in it.

Great app!

I have the game and a couple card decks and love the app since I don’t travel with the cards. This is a great way to connect and communicate wherever you are. Having it on the phone (which is always on me) is so much easier than ordering all the card decks and figuring out where they should be in the house. Great job John Gottard and thank you so much for creating this app!!!

Great resource for couples and therapists

The Gottmans have great easy to use tools for couples. I was so excited to see they now have all their card decks for free. These are a staple for many couples therapists and as a couples therapist I let all my clients know about this app. Great for conversation starters, ideas to connect, and sex help for those in a rut or looking for ways to enhance their relationship.
