Ratings and Reviews
So thorough & evidenced-based
I rarely take the time to write reviews, but as both a mental health clinician and someone who suffers from major depressive disorder and anxiety, I'm so impressed by the practical utility of this app, first in probing the myriad ways that chronic distress undermines our real-world well-being, and second because of the myriad targeted, concrete & evidence-based strategies it suggests to flip the tables and improve our moods through simple shifts in conscious thought & action. Also love the personal commitment framework as practical strategy for real-life application.
Only quibble is that the daily mood & thought journaling interfaces are clunky-looking and not nearly as intuitive as a handful of otherwise mediocre & shamelessly pricey mood tracking & CBT apps on the market. I also wished that this somehow integrated with iOS' 'health' app, which I already use for diet & activity tracking. Were developers to redress those two issues, I hesitate to speculate what I actually might pay for the result.
Glitchy and boring UI, lots of activities
I’ve just started using this app so hopefully it will get better and I’ll become more attached as I use it. I’ve turned on fingerprint authentication and now the app glitches and crashes every time I try to open the app. First time it took three crashes before it finally opened. Unfortunately for the app I was just getting crashed on logins two times before it finally ran and I was able to open the app where it immediately asked me to rate. So, the breadth of activities seems to be good, I just ran through random activities. I wish there were more statements based on the aspect to help place myself on the slides for determining the focus areas.
The UI just seems less graphically appealing than more recent apps. The icons could be more rounded boxes and less cluttered on the landing screen. Plus, the quick start guide would have been great if it was a few opening slides when I entered the app. My first opening was super overwhelming and so I had no idea what to do or where to go. So a quick run through of what the app can do would have been really nice.
UPDATE: Just bought the iPhone 11 and I can’t even open the app anymore. It glitches and then closes, yet is showing up in my list of open apps but when I try to select it- crash. Will be trying to figure out how to get my money back for sure.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for reaching out. It's important that we understand how the crash issue occurred. Please, can you provide more details on this matter to our support service (email@example.com)? We will do our best to make the app better and visually attractive for you in the next update. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us.
I would give it 5 stars but a few accessibility issues which can be fixed
Mood tracker seems to be a great app for self monitoring and then it provides ideas to help with areas of concern. I would rank it a solid 5/5 if there was area to monitor sleep. There are great sleep aids. Thank you. My biggest issue is being charged for an in app purchase and I was unaware of the purchase or what I purchased. This is an app for people who have some area of need psychologically or mentally. Some may be more serious than others. I think it would be helpful if there was a bold clearly delineated notice that a person was starting a purchasing process as well as a “ are you sure you want to spend 4.99 per month box. It would be great to have a buyers remorse box too (LOL). Thank you very much for this program and it’s a solid 5/5 if you give a little more thought about your target audience and the types of issues different people cope with on a variety of levels such as accessing your wonderful program. I am recovering from a brain injury and I am relearning many things that are difficult for me like understanding things on-line purchasing and other financial things. Until a few months ago my partner was dealing with these types of things for me.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your kind words about the quality of the app. To clarify, the app DOES NOT charge per month, nor does it have in-app purchases. We are very proud to offer MoodKit in full, for the life of the app, for a one-time purchase. If you still have questions, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org for personal assistance. Thank you!
