App Became My Medicine

I’ve been diagnosed with Sever Depression, severe Anxiety/ social anxiety, insomnia, and more & I’m constantly downloading apps to help my fidgeting & when I feel my heart pounding & i can feel myself loosing control i usually pop a Xanax and play a game but now I just pop open this app & use zen mode. I do not know how but somehow 10 minutes down the road I find myself calm from reading the quotes that pop up that inspire me & trying to collect more birds at the same time haha. Unlike other apps I get distracted by competition on this app I get distracted by inspiration. The group that made this app must have great hearts to put something out like this. Thank you so much, you guys helped me out so much, and I don’t think you guys will truly know how much You’ve helped me. Thank you 🙏

Made me cry

This game is very relaxing, and it’s simple but effective to you. Effective as in impactful. You guide “birds” (though they probably are a metaphor for something else) over sad people which turns them happy and therefor releasing more birds for you. At the end, you read a series of messages that are regrets from people, elderly too. Reading those messages made me cry, because I realized that I was living in some of them, and it opened my mind and heart up. I would recommend it to anyone.

Thank you Dan Vogt for creating very simple and creative game that ultimately helped me be a better person.

You’re not alone

This app is calming and surprisingly clever. The quotes are genuine and you realize you’re not alone. The regrets are true, no one actually lives without regret and there is nothing wrong with addressing them. There are minute affirmations throughout the “releasing” journey. I would like to see longer journeys and more affirmations. In a world where many of us deal with mental illnesses, we need something like this. I really hope this app gets the attention it deserves.
