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.

Ratings and Reviews
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!
So after days of searching for some kind of app to help me get my racing important thoughts straight and not forget what I want to desperately remember... Good helped me stumble upon perspective. I was skeptical after downloading and disliking several other apps that I was disappointed with but finally the search has ended. They don't charge for the app and there are no in-app purchases required. You can read what their mission statements are and decide for yourself if you agree with their mission to just help people who become who struggle with their thoughts (like I do) I think you won't be disappointed. This app is so helpful and inspiring and truly helps you see perspectives you might miss that will improve your quality of life. I really think these people are trying to make a difference! Thank you for what you are doing, "two hungry developers"! ❤🙏
