Good Beginnings

There is mostly good in this app: the ability to add a photo, the choice of creating a numbered or bullet list, and esp the daily sayings added to the end of your journal entry.

However, it’s frustrating to not be able to go back and edit something already typed. In other words, although there is an edit feature, allowing you to return to your entry to add more, you can’t go back to an earlier part of your gratitude list and make changes, unless you delete everything back to the typo or error.

Also, when adding one of their emojis, it weirdly puts it at the top of your list, not in, or at the end, of an entry. So far, I hv not figured out how to get rid of it either.

Thanks for your feedback! I'm working issue with moving the cursor. Expect that fix very soon! The emojis aren't to be added into the text (although that's a really good idea!)...they're to express the overall "feel" of the day. Thanks again!

Super glitchy

I used to love this app. Now focusing on trying to get it to work distracts so much from my gratitude entry that I deleted the app. I wasn’t finding myself happier using it, only frustrated. 1) The app says I can limit its access to certain photos OR albums on my phone. So I set up an album for use with the app. But when you tap to add a photo to your journal entry, whether you select photo or album, it takes you to the camera.
2) There is not an identifiable “enter” button to save entries do you play Russian roulette and use the back button. Some functions save when you do this, some don’t. I don’t want to retype for the third time an entry I was really inspired about the first time.
3) The updates in this app, like many to be fair, are biased in favor of less privacy, more sharing and fewer obvious buttons on the screen with a function on them. Maybe it makes for a pretty screen but I want sublime ease of use the moment I open the app. I don’t want to read instructions, I don’t want to practice, that is not where I want to spend the previous hours of my life. Make it simple, easy and obvious or I’m moving on. Also, I do not want to share the entirety of my private reflections with the world via Facebook nor the advertisers who gather conglomerate data from Google. Count me out.

I used to love this app. I’m sorry to say goodbye. I’m grateful there are other options available. Peace, out.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. 1. Limited photo access is in your app settings. 2. We use “enter” button to create a new row, not to save the journal page. To do that, tap the “save/next” button 3. We restrict sharing your data because privacy is super important to us. We don’t sell data.

Really buggy

This app is very buggy. If I notice a typo while writing, I am unable to click on the portion of a sentence where the typo occurred to fix it - I would need to delete and re-enter the entire entry because the app does not allow you to jump to different parts of the text. I also have issues lately with the app automatically filling the previous day’s entry into the text box every time I try to create a new entry. And to make matters worse, the in-app support link does not seem to be working as it would not allow me to create an account to get support despite attempting to do so with multiple browsers and on multiple devices. I have used this app for years and put up with a variety of different bugs throughout. There are so many other ways to keep a gratitude journal, and I don’t think this app is a convenient or user-friendly one for me anymore.

Be sure to download the latest version where this has been fixed. Sorry about the in-app support link! We will get that sorted too. Thanks for using Gratitude!
