Understanding your story matters.

Joyster is a smart mental health tracker and journal that allows you to track your symptoms (mental and physical) against food, exercise, activities, and social interactions happening in your life.

Joyster is designed to feel delightful, inspirational, and beautiful. Be prepared to reflect, gain perspective, and understand yourself and your body.

Joyster is for anyone, especially those who struggle with anxiety, panic attack, depression, PTSD, OCD, and bipolar disorder.


Joyster helps you gain insights into your physical and mental health, what affects it and how. Track your physical and mental symptoms against activities, exercise, food, and social interactions.

Visualize how your body and mind overlap to identify trends and triggers in your well-being.

For example, if you have OCD, you can track how your compulsions are affecting your obsessions and mental health. If you are bipolar, you can track your mania symptoms against your day to day life.

Joyster uses reflection, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and data to help you understand yourself and build a habit of reflection & self-care.

Understand positive and negative influences, such as activities, foods, exercise, and social interactions. This is key for someone who may be anxious, struggling with panic attacks, or wants to understand their triggers.

Would Use If Not for the Price

I download A LOT of mental health/journal apps to try and find ones that I feel I can stick to because I am very inconsistent and easily overwhelmed due to my anxiety/OCD on top of my ADHD. I keep coming back to this app every few months because I want it so BADLY, but the price makes it a non-starter. I know developers need to make money to keep building an app but I just think that it can be a little unfair/discouraging how there are so many wonderful apps out there for mental health, mindfulness, journaling, and mood tracking and the vast majority of them require a subscription that starts at minimum $4.99/month.

Developer Response ,

We are very sorry you feel this way. We hand out free promo codes (for a year) every once in a while. If you are interested, please reach us on our website Joyster

7 day trial = charges you immediately 🤡

This app is subscription only and offers a 7 day trial, which is fine, so I signed up for it. Later in the day (6 hours later) got an Apple wallet notification for the yearly subscription charge. So… the 7 day trial isn’t a trial? It’s just 7 days out of the subscription you forced me to buy to even get into the app. Wonderful. Now I have to wait for the change to process through to get a refund. Plus I was lucky I used an Apple Card so I was notified of the purchase later in the day. Had I used a normal credit card I would have never caught that. Don’t waste your time!

Developer Response ,

We are very sorry this has happened. I am not sure why this was the case. We DO NOT charge our customers until the 7 day trial has expired. If we did charge you, this would have been an issue with apple. I will reach out to them to figure this out. Again, we apologize for your inconvenience.
