Real people, real stories, completely judgement free. Lyf App is a platform to share thoughts and experiences that might be too personal for your other social medias. Whether you’re battling anxiety, dealing with infidelity, coping with loss, struggling with addiction, or questioning your sexual identity, there are others going through the same thing. With Lyf you’re provided a world of support in the palm of your hand.
Post your experiences (known as “beats”). These can include your obstacles as well as your achievements – and because there’s no shortage of what life can throw at you, you can create as many beats as you want. Each beat is it’s own discussion featuring it’s own timeline and privacy settings – you can choose to share your beat with select people, share with the entire Lyf community, or wear a mask to be completely anonymous.
Lyf is free and always will be for discussing and receiving support from fellow Lyfers. We also offer our premium and highly affordable “Lyf Support” service for when you find yourself seeking professional guidance from our fully-qualified psychologists. At the rate of $10/hr, our psychologists are there for you on demand 24/7.

Ratings and Reviews
Great support, positive community, has helped me a lot
This app has been phenomenal to me. I suffer from autism, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and ocd. I have a lot of bad feelings and I tend to push people away in my real life, so I needed to reach out to other types of people - my online friends - and the people on Lyf are supportive and give me advice when I feel down. Since I started using this app last year, I’ve felt so welcome and free from judgement. This is the best place where you will be taken care of and made to feel loved, and cyberbullying is not tolerated on Lyf. Try out this app, I promise you won’t regret it.
Could be better
Lyf is an okay support app. It tries to be the place where people who need to talk about issues can go and not have to fake being happy all the time. But the layout and design of the interface needs work. There was an update but it didn’t help much.
The community isn’t actually as supportive as I thought it would be. I used Lyf for several months and sometimes spent quite a lot of time and effort into making a post but no one would respond. Hundreds of people can like your post without writing any comments. One could argue that not everyone has something to say, but if at least 5% of the people who liked the post responded, it would make it seem like people are actually reading what you wrote.
The most popular stories that have all the likes and comments are of course related to sex and drugs. That’s not a bad thing but it makes you feel like your problem isn’t important if it’s not related to sex or drugs. Not everyone has a problem with those things. Maybe some people are battling cancer or in the midst of handling other major life changes like moving to a new country, school, having kids, etc.
You can certainly post about whatever you like, but you just won’t get much feedback if it is not a hot topic. So overtime, it feels like you’re talking to thin air. Maybe if the focus wasn’t. That’s why I deleted the app.
Didn’t Help At All
When I was on Lyf I thought I could find a community of people who were supportive. All I found there was people peer pressuring me with questions and judgement and people giving unwanted advice. Many made their own judgement saying I was a lonely person and needed to see someone when I clearly stated in my posts that I was not lonely and I was sane and happy for once in my life. Nothing I posted was harmful to anyone, not even myself. I did not speak ill of anyone, and just talked about my feelings and personal life, and yet the people there didn’t support me and instead just projected their ideals onto me. Because this happened to me, Ive gained a trauma trying to open up to people about the one good thing I wanted to talk about. I deleted the app and its taken me months just to feel like coming on here to review it, because it gave me such anxiety. I will never download this app, nor recommend it to anyone else.
