Awesome App!!!

I definitely agree with the person who said that even with the basic plan you can still get a lot of about this app I love how in the daily journaling section when you pick how are you feel it gives you different prompts depending on how you feel for example if you say that I’m feeling angry then tI will give you prompts about like what made you mad and that kind of stuff or if you feel anxious it would make you think about what kind of things you can do to make you relax and it’s not just like any old mindfulness have to ask the same questions every time I also have like how they have like different journals for different things so for example they have a dream journal where they talk about what you think your dreams could be telling you or a letter that you write to yourself for when you’re feeling angry and they have all sorts of things so yeah so I think that’s pretty amazing even though I don’t have the premium version which definitely unlocks a lot more features so if you want to get it then you should but for me I’m fine with a basic version it’s still pretty awesome and I’m pretty happy with it and I
would totally recommend downloading it if you’re interested in journaling for the first time or if you’re just interested in journaling about your mental health in general so yeah I really enjoy this app and there wasn’t there would be nothing that I would change about it

Absolutely Amazing!

This app is amazing, it has insights, tons of questions to prompt about your day, different plans to start, and specific topics to help you overcome the feels of any sort! If you’ve not journaled before (I hadn’t until I downloaded this app), then this is the absolute perfect app for you!! There’s even an introduction to journaling plan to help you along your way. There’s two different membership options, you can either stick with the basic, free version (which is what I have now), or you can upgrade to pay either monthly or yearly to unlock all of the plans and such. I’m seriously considering upgrading because this app is so amazing even just with the basics! I don’t feel as though I need to upgrade, I’d just like to support these developers and I’d love to take a look at more of the plans. I’ve been having trouble sleeping, but journaling on Jour has really helped me, and I wasn’t sure that it would make much of a difference. If you’re even considering buying this app I’d encourage you to do so! The art is beautifully soothing, and the moods to choose from are plentiful, I never feel as though I’ll have to settle for something close enough to what I’m feeling. If the developers read this review, thank you SO much for all the time you’ve invested into this app, it’s so helpful and amazing!

A Fantastic Mindful Approach to Journaling

What a fantastic app! I have tried many journaling apps in the past, and have found none of them to be particularly motivating. Most are just a blank slate, and as journaling is not really my thing, I find it hard to get going in those. Some provide you with prompts, but I’ve never felt like the prompts got me anywhere. Jour is different. I’ve been struggling with serious depression, and the current pandemic and the California wildfires have made it increasingly difficult to handle my emotions in a healthy way. I’ve been clinging on for dear life. Just a single session with Jour and I found myself smiling, sitting here at my desk and thinking about how great it is to have a place to sit and write.

I haven’t tried the paid features, and probably won’t be able to for budgeting reasons, but I’ve looked through the paid guided journals, and I must say for those who can fit it in, it looks spectacular. But even without the paid features, the app feels like a full-functioning CBT approach to journaling, and I love this first experience!
