• become less emotionally reactive
• become a better, kinder person

Wow, life-changing! This app has so much potential — a bright future.

I’m blown away by the beautiful functionality and style of this app. In a time of self-coddling exceptionalism, I find the truthful and minimalist way of Stoicism to be an oasis to during this age of narcissism. I want to develop my character by persisting in doing the simple everyday things that are hard for me; and to treat the people in my life better, by being more thoughtful and reflective of all the ways I impact people in my life. The questions asked in this journaling app helps me to do exactly that, and I really appreciate it. The responsiveness of the developer shows a kind of rare caring, which will surely inspire a community around this app. The messaging feature promises interesting ways to incorporate philosophy, natural language processing and ML. It is a beautifully modern way to deliver lessons in classical philosophy in more pragmatic and interactive, bite-sized chunks — with the potential for location-awareness and habit tracking for really grounding philosophy into lived experience. As an educator with a philosophy background, a software developer and product manager, I am so excited for this app - and I can’t wait to see what it turns into over the next year. I hope that I can be involved in some way as a volunteer and enthusiast.

SpiritKaizen, I wish I could reply to your review in the same beautiful way that You complemented Stoic. Unfortunately, I’m not skilled enough :)
Nevertheless, I really deeply appreciate your support, and kind words, and I will do my best to meet your expectations.

I would be honored if you could guide me with your advice on future features, If you wish to have access to beta builds, please ping me at

Have a great day,

I’ve always strived to set my goals and intentions for the day and reflect on them in the evening but have always struggled to keep up with it. There is something about Stoic that makes me feel a sense of peace and motivation when I open it. Every aspect of it is incredible, from the daily quotes from Stoic philosophers and the Buddha (my philosophies of choice) to answering the questions I set each morning & night, doing a visualization or meditation within the exercises, and even to the minimalistic UI and animations. Everything fits and everything makes me want to use the app more and more, which in this case is actually a good thing. Stoic is as far from pseudo-psychology as you can get. It’s pretty simple: If you setup your daily questions and just do what the app was built for. Twice a day. If you use it and apply it it will change your life. No question. The app is perfect, so it’s up to you if you want to follow it. If you do, good luck! I’ll be right there with you.

Solid way to mobilize

Sometimes it’s good to make time to really see what it is you’re doing and why you’re doing it and what you’d like to do differently. A lot of the time though it’s difficult to take a good look at it all and find a way to ask the right questions and be impartial in helping ourselves to feel resolved and capable to take on whatever it is that we are presented with. This app is a tool to ask yourself good questions about what’s important to you to and hear what it is you have to say about how and why you live the way you do. This app makes it easy to record and review your answers to the challenges you face and what your answers to them were. A lot of people would like to journal and find it difficult to make time for and I enjoy that this app provides the benefits of journaling in a way that is easy and effective. It also is pleasant visually and easy to interact with. Good stuff.
