Let's not lie to each other. This app ain't gonna solve all your problems.

I don't think any app is gonna do that. If you think your answers are one app away, then I have some land on the moon to sell you.

Not that this app isn't helpful. It's helped plenty of people, in fact. It all depends what you need and what you need to meet that need.

Here's what this app can do: give you a place to write a journal, track your moods, emotions, habits and anything else you can think of. It's very flexible so you can make it into whatever you need it to be.

It will also do some analysis on your data and give you some charts and graphs and data breakdowns. Those might help you spot patterns in your life. Or they might not. Who knows? Life is chaos.

We also don't use any tracking scripts, or collect your data, or show ads, or up-sell you with recurring payments or any of the other things that apps these days drive us crazy with.

This is a place of calm, okay? Your place of calm.

Or maybe not. Maybe it's not for you. Well, we've priced it low enough that you don't have to feel guilty if you try it out and don't stick with it.

You're human, we're human, life is hard.

But, look, there is some actual reason this app does what it does. In short:

JOURNAL - one of the best things you can do for your mental health is keep a journal. They help you understand your thoughts, reduce stress, and many other benefits.

TRACK STUFF - Say you're struggling with a particular emotion (e.g. depression, or anger) and trying to identify the triggers. Wouldn't it be helpful to read back your journal for just the days when you felt that emotion? What about two emotions? What happened on days when you were sad and angry? You can look at those days as well. Though ... maybe you won't want to.

LOOK AT PRETTY CHARTS - Do you know how often you have a good day? How about days of the week? Or most common emotions? Getting some data back can help you make changes.

CUSTOMIZE EVERYTHING - There are as many ways to use it as there are people! Add questions that are specific to your own unique experience. Change the emotions/feelings list to reflect how you describe your feelings, or replace it entirely with a list of different cheeses.

That's it, really. That's our terrible pitch. If it appeals to you, great! We're only in this to help people. Otherwise, good luck in whatever journey you're on!

Truly Fabulous App!

I hope this keeps getting developed! It’s fabulous! Bought both the Mac App & iOS App! Love that it’s only a one-time fee for each platform. Sick and tired of apps charging a few bucks a month for a tool that doesn’t need constant development. I believe apps like this deserve more recognition! Great work!

Great Little Journal

It helps me stay on top of myself and make a conscious effort at the end of the day to reflect a fun little activity. Looking forward to seeing the next iteration with more features!

Bug Bug Bug

I couldn’t restore my purchase with iPad. So I can only type with my iPhone. It took me time to type, but the text just gone when I finished. I was so disappointed! I paid for the sync. But the sync didn’t function well.

Developer Response ,

Sorry about the troubles! Email support at and we’ll get this sorted for you. You should be able to restore your purchase on your iPad if you purchased on an iPhone. If you can’t, we can help you figure out the issue. (Or if you’re not happy make sure you get a refund. We don’t want anyone paying for an app that doesn’t work for them!)
