* Explore Your Past Memories
After one week, you can hop back to memories in your gratitude journal from exactly a week ago. This period grows to months and even years. After two weeks, you can view random moments using the Happiness Jar. Each month, create a recap video of your favorite photos and clips.
* Pods: Journaling Together
Pods are private groups where you can share memories and send emoji reactions. It's a novel way to send photos and share joy with your friends, partner, family, or even coworkers.
* Unique Reminders Each Day
Every day we write a custom prompt to help you remember to record your feelings. It could be a quote about happiness, a fact about the day, or a joke to brighten your day and put you in a happy mood.
* Benefits of Gratitude Journaling
Gratitude journaling is a simple and easy self-care practice that helps reduce stress and anxiety while improving your overall happiness. In even a few seconds, the practice of actively reflecting on 3 good things or what you are grateful for can help you refocus on the positives in life.
* A Private Diary On All Your Devices
We offer an iPhone App and Web version where you can upload and view your past moments - check out our website after signing up. Your moments and photos are privately synced to your account so you’ll never lose them. Plus Subscribers can download their journal in PDF or CSV format.
* Secret & Secure Self-Love
Your moments are only visible to you and never posted publicly. All cloud syncing is securely encrypted using HTTPS endpoints. You can create a passcode lock for extra security (Touch and Face ID supported).
* Your Account
An account is required to keep your moments safe and to allow you to view and manage them across multiple devices. If you lose your device, you won’t lose all your happy memories. You may choose to share your location to provide you with meaningful data on the places, people, and things that help you find happiness.

Improving start-up time and fixes little bugs from the last major update!
Recently we introduced the Daily Throwbacks Widget:
- Explore photos from your daily memories on your home screen
- Tap the arrow buttons to toggle through time periods
- Simple design focused on your your photos
- Tap anywhere to open that day in the app
- Widget automatically refreshes every night
- Only available on iOS 17
Daily throwbacks has been a favorite feature in Happyfeed for years and now it's even more accessible. The new widget takes advantage of the latest features in iOS and even allows you to toggle through memories without opening the app. Hopefully seeing a new memory will add a little more delight when you open your device every morning.
Thank you for making Happyfeed a part of your daily routine :)
Ratings and Reviews
Amazing personal journal
The streak feature is what really gets me to write everyday. I want to be able to look back at my life and remember everything. from the minute things i do during the day along side the pictures i take. i’m in the 500s now. and i can now look back a year and see what i was doing on each specific day. Each entry max’s out at 560 with 4 photos or one video but you can do up to 10 entries per day. The calendar view is cool to look at as you fill a whole month. If you forget to write. It doesn’t matter how long you go without writing. If you go on a week vacation and don’t have time. You get to keep your streak as long as you enter the days in the chronological order. Never skip a day. There’s also a map view that shows where the geological data of the photo was taken. Cool to see all the places i’ve been. it doesn’t track you just logs the data in the photo if it even has my favorite feature is the face ID lock. let’s me feel more comfortable writing more personal stuff in my personal daily journal. Amazing app. I recommend to all my friends

Sooo cool to hear you've reached 500 days of journaling!! 🤩🤩🤩
I really appreciate the thoughtful review and mentioning pretty much all the best features! The calendar is especially awesome when you have years of memories to explore. It's great to see you enjoying so many different aspects of Happyfeed 😊
If it's within the last two weeks, you actually can enter moments out of order to maintain your streak - it's a pretty recent thing and the streak will look broken until the whole "chain" of days is completed. If you do try this out and it breaks your streak for whatever reason - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can repair it too. Little bugs can break streaks occasionally too, and I'm 100% here to fix it in those cases.
Thanks again and hope keep finding Happyfeed to be a perfect place to track those little moments in your life 🎉
Easy way to record gratitude
Wow, just hit 842 days of gratitude with this app. I have used the free version but upgraded to the paid version after about a year. I LOVE the ability to add pictures (either version) to my gratitude practice. This has basically become my own little Instagram feed and I love that I can scroll through without the distractions from other people. My spouse has commented that this practice has changed me, and that my outlook on life and the way I view the world is so much more positive and encouraging. ⭐️
I would 100% recommend this app. I have told so many family members about it. It has helped me stay true to my goal of finding the special moments each day.
I also love the search feature. You can search by name, date or emoji. I assigned each of my family members an emoji and it’s so fun to go back to show my kids the gratitude moments I have that they are involved with. I have not yet printed but I am looking forward to doing that soon and will have a review on the process and picture quality.

Reading this really made my day! It's so wonderful to hear that Happyfeed has made an impact on your outlook in life and incredibly nice of you to compare it to Instagram (in the good way) 🥰
Interesting to hear you like the search function too! I think there's a lot of room for improvement but I'm glad it's been useful. As you continue to try out more Plus features, please let me know if you have any thoughts good or bad - you can email me anytime at email@example.com
Thanks again and hope you are doing well!! 😄
[Update] gratitudes do not need to be social
I’ve been using this app for years and really enjoy it and pay for the monthly subscription. However, the recent update that asks you which followers you want to share your gratitudes with is not only in annoying user experience because it pops up after every gratitude but, additionally, it makes me feel like my personal gratitude. Notes are no longer personal and private. I hope the product team considers removing this added feature or k may be on my way back to pen and paper.
Perfect bite-sized daily positivity:
This app has beautiful UI and is simple to use. It is fun to look back on the past and see what brought you gratitude and happiness on a day in the past. Every morning I journal my short gratitude and it has changed my outlook in life 🙃

That's really wonderful to hear! 🥰 Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, and I hope that Happyfeed continues to bring you positivity every day
Edit: Thanks for the feedback on that popup! It should only show up if you are in a Pod and have recently shared to that Pod (disappears after a few days). Sounds like I should make it hide-able at least... it's a bit of an experiment and sorry about the annoyance!
