An honest app that will take you on a guided self discovery journey to improve your mental health, overcome anxieties, and slow your brain down a bit.

This here, then, is a safe place for you to be honest and get in touch with yourself again, for too often we allow ourselves to be agitated by everything around us and too rarely do we pause to help our mind catch up.

It's time to slow down, spend some time thinking about our lives and try to learn from our own experiences. What better way then to simply engage in a conversation with your future and past self?

Perspective is a unique journaling experience that captures your thoughts, moods, and interests over time and prompts reflection and insight to help you make personal discoveries and learn about yourself.

We hope it'll help you make better decisions in your life, allow you to better manage your anxieties and those moments when you feel low. We hope it'll help you rediscover yourself and fall in love again with the awesome person that you are.

We started out with this big idea that we want to help people, we want to add our small contribution to making the world just a little bit better. And for that, this app absolutely needed to be completely free. It's tricky, it makes it so much harder to find the time to improve it, but some of the feedback we've got from people telling us it's made their life better... it's worth it. We're not gonna be the #1 app in the store, we're not gonna be the best app out there, just because we don't have the resources to do so. But we're honest in our intentions and we think it's vital that not only the people who can pay should have access to a tool that could potentially improve their mental health. That being said, though, all our users have iPhones... so, that might not be the best logic. Regardless, it's free just because it's the right thing to do.

We hope you enjoy it.

A perspective on Perspective

I am new to journaling. It has been suggested to me by friends and family over the years, but I thought it would be a waste of time. I was wrong. For me, very wrong. The application certainly has many features that paper doesn’t. I won’t waste your time there. What I will share is how easy and intuitive the many features are. I quickly type into my fingerprint locked journal throughout the day. Some thoughts good, so not so much. The ability to append pics to entries is gaining importance for me. The “Insights” feature which allows you to comment on previous days entries is easy to use and emotionally powerful. I have enjoyed the simple uplifting push notifications that wish you a good day or celebrate the day you just had. The application is stand alone, so no data leaves your device unless you want it to. That’s refreshing. Although they don’t require payment for Perspective, I decided to pay $50. I would have spent almost that on paper, binder, etc. and would have never used them. This application I use constantly. As an aside, for those out there that are in some form of professional counseling, reading my journal aloud to my therapist was very helpful to me and my counselor. You don’t need to be crazy to use this app. But you might be crazy not to.

Enjoyable and Relaxing

Usually with apps like this you’re bombarded with overly joyful questions or quotes that really make me want to just delete the app. But this app is very subtle in a calming and enjoyable feel. You have your mood, which isn’t 50 different choices making me question what I was feeling the whole week before that, and you have the calendar view that you can add an entry to everyday with whatever you want, add a pic and even has a wild card question button that I ended up tapping 4 times in the same day due to the simplicity of the questions. They didn’t make me over think things, like most apps do. And they didn’t require me to brainstorm a whole response for one simple entry. Of course you have your little personalizations you can adjust to your liking, as well as adding your interests and viewing your insights. I’m not exactly sure what the discover section was for, I assumed it was for messages from the developers, which is a normal feature for most apps. When I get the money to donate I definitely will! This is a genuine app that I plan to keep!

I only rated 4 because I’m not going to use it

But it’s a solid app, and I REALLY respect what you’re trying to do. The problem is, I’ve been using Journey on and off for 3 years. If I would have found this before I remembered Journey last month I may have used it. But once I got back into using Journey, it has so many of my memories in it. Also, I love the features of perspective. I like the text feed and the cards and the week reflection, the insights if you change an old entry, all of it. But I’d be losing so much more if I switched. I don’t mind losing text formatting or even switching from the daily journal coach to cards. I also LOVE that your app is truly free (but I just bought the lifetime premium for Journey last month :( ). But I’d be losing location tracking, 2 more moods with charts, tags (almost like interests but I can tag stuff I don’t like too, I wish Journey had something like the interests though). More customization of the app, what tags make you feel a certain mood, health kit insights, etc.
I know you guys need donations to get features rolling, so I donated a bit. I’d maybe like to revisit this app once it’s matured a bit, maybe it will surpass Journey :) I like what you guys have going
