Hi there, I am Pritesh — maker of the Gratitude app, a great tool to bring more gratitude into your lives.
The Gratitude app was born out of a personal need and I had initially built the app for myself. In June 2017, my family and I were struggling with many problems. We were in a constant state of negativity, frustration, and anxiety. My dad was a victim of politics at his job, my mother was not keeping well, my sister and I were struggling at our jobs and figuring out what to do. It felt as if we were constantly attracting negativity and things felt like they were becoming even worse.
We consulted spiritual healers and therapists. I attended mind power workshops, read a lot of self-help books, and even asked for help from friends and family. I won’t deny that reading the book ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne had a huge positive impact on me.
While doing all these, I actively started to focus more on the positives, to count my blessings. I understood and absorbed the fact that if I keep complaining about the things that I lack, no matter what I achieve, I’ll continue to be anxious or worrying about things that I lack(at that time). More importantly, I realized that the most important reason for staying unhappy was when we spent all the time thinking about “I” or “me” or “myself” — being self-centered.
I started writing and expressing thanks for the little things that happened to me. It wasn’t easy. It was difficult at the start. In fact, at the beginning things seem to feel even worse. Because, I was expecting things to change sooner and when that didn’t happen early on, I started questioning the whole concept of Gratitude. But I wondered, what is the harm in doing it anyway? There’s nothing to lose.
Right now, I’m not exaggerating when I say that I feel magical after expressing, writing, and harboring Grateful thoughts. I eventually succeeded in convincing my family too to try and focus on the positive, and now after quite a hard time, all of us are doing great. Over time, I think we realized that we shouldn’t be chasing the wrong things and attach our happiness to them. I built this app because I wanted a private place to write my grateful thoughts, to remind me to focus on the positive, and to give it colors. The app has been my happy place.
The app is a great tool to reminds us about the little things that we can take for granted. You can set multiple reminders for making you consistent at feeling grateful and finding gratitude for new things every day. On difficult days, you can look back and read up your old journal entries. They are great for uplifting your mood. If you are stuck or find it boring, the app gives you ideas on what you could be grateful for. Lots of our users love adding images to their journals. These become cherishable memories for a lifetime. The app also allows you to write a letter of thank you to someone that brought value to you.
Lots of our users asked us for also including affirmations. This is the second tab in the app. These self-affirmations are great for improving your self-talk and self-image. You can customize your affirmations with background images, adding your voice, and background music. You can also discover new affirmations from our handpicked ones.
Every day, the app brings to you inspiring quotes, affirmations, and gratitude stories from other users.
There's a place in the app that you can use to visualize your goals every day. You can add several photos related to your dreams and play these every day with background music.

Ratings and Reviews
Greatness starts by being grateful
I am so thankful for this app. I’m also very grateful to the team who developed it and who constantly updates it to a positive direction. This app’s free feature is great in which I started with. But I decided to purchase the membership because I enjoy uploading photos and keeping traceable record of my journey of gratitude.
I started this app when I started reading the book, “The gift,” by Rhonda Byrnes.
I recommend this app to go alongside that book because it easily allows you to record your day to day grateful practices. The book had 28 days to practice gratefulness. And both the book and this app has allowed me to transform my life to the better. 2020 has not been a kind year to many , but to practice being grateful even for the small things go a long way. I still practice writing down my daily blessings in this app despite finishing the book weeks ago. I also love the fact that they offer reminders, quotes and challenges to keep you engaged to being grateful. So thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!

A diamond in the rough
I was looking for a simple way to be more mindful and grateful when I stumbled upon this app. It’s awesome. The free version may be perfect for you to add a bit a positivity. If so, use it, in these troubling times it’s hard to remember all the good things in your life. I got the subscription as I love the fact that is synced across devices and you can add more pics. I was just looking for a easy way to journal my thoughts but this little gem has so much more: from reminders, gratitude prompts, daily inspirational quotes, and even ways to make your own affirmations to help you focus on the the positive and your resiliency. Even if you only use the free version, please use it. The positivity and kindness that come from mindfulness, no matter how small, will create a tiny ripple in the sea of chaos. And who knows, maybe that one ripple will be the only thing that another person has in their life. We never truly know just how we affect people. Let’s try and make sure it’s kindness, empathy and compassion we spread.

Simplicity,positive,motivational and hooked
I originally bought a journal on sale a month ago but have not touched it. I also have a daily motivational that I sent a quote to my health coach. And she replied using the referral. I was intrigued cause she is always upbeat. I was hooked. What I love is it only asks what made you smile or "I am so grateful because". So many apps ask your mood and if you are sad. Angry. Depressed then you expound on negative. And I stayed in mode and was never consistent so stayed sad
Life is full of many difficult but wonderful opportunities and I learned to look at situations as a blessing and what Am I to learn from this
I am a 70 year old female still working. Full time and I slipped and fell a week ago. I am so grateful that my bruised muscles are healing and I have paid time to be off. This again makes me stop and reflect the small things
I had always dealt with depression and anxiety thru life and it was consuming me
This app has been a godsend because it does not allow any negativity. Only asks about the positivety
Another great asset is the simple daily zens that I sometimes forward is not sent with Advertisements etc like my motivational app is
Simplicity Oh my goodness, as I am writing this a quote just popped up saying"a negative mind will never produce positive results "
How true. Stay positive. Look for the good and life will give you laughter and smiles. Thank you thank you
