Love being able to have a conversation with my ex and be able to have proof of what all was said to where it is not only easily accessible, but also admissible in court. Love the fact that none of the messages can be deleted or edited. It time stamps when you or they posted comments then time stamps when the other read it. So there is no saying that you never told me this or I never got that message.

The calendar is amazing also. Not only to be able to keep up with appointments for the kids, but it time stamps everything as well. So now when my ex adds that doctors appt the night before I can now provide proof that they aren’t giving me enough heads up to be able to attend the appt.

Only thing I would change is when requesting a record, I don’t always need every single conversation. Maybe just the first and third threads that were posted in. Also the calendar you shouldn’t be able to delete events. Instead just edit them saying cancelled or something like that.

I have messed with the journal part of it as of yet. But I’ve only been fully using it for a little over a week.

Highly recommend this for anyone who has gone through separation that involves children. Just so that you can always protect yourself.

Great app

I wish there was a way to limit the use of the person by telephone number instead of email. My sons father let his girlfriend download the app on her cellphone and now they both harass me. I never know who I’m talking to. Some days it’s her and some days it’s him. But they are both always attacking me. It’s mentally exhausting. I’ve stopped checking my messages, and he’s accused me with the court of ignoring him. So now that I have proof that the girlfriend has the app on her phone, I’ve notified the court so they know why I’ve chosen to ignore their constant harassment and why I’ve chosen my mental health over their constant arguments and fights with me. I don’t know what to do now as far as communication goes since I cannot tell who is reaching out to me. I get anxiety attacks just seeing the notifications. Amazing that people can find anything to use as a weapon to harass and disturb your mental health. Until there’s a way for the girlfriend to be blocked, I will not be using any of these apps but this app was great and I have nothing but great things to say about it. So thank you to the developers. Hope you can fix it to make it be allowed one phone number downloadable rather than email. Thank you

extremely frustrated customers ,


we have been using this app since February 2019. In the beginning it was fine and we had no issues. But when they changed it from being $4.99 a month for the basic (which included app access) to being $5.99-$9.99 to have app access, we have had a problem EVERY month! We get charged the subscription and then 2-3 days later we get kicked out of the app and told we don’t have app access with our plan, it take 2 days to get anyone to email us back, after they review our bank charges, we get app access back. Then the next month SAME DANG THING! So frustrated with it, makes me wish I hadn’t requested the judge to order this as the only means of communication. My attorney had recommended we use this app because the other party liked to lie and say she didn’t send stuff, even though I still had the text. Or she would call 15-20 times a day and say nothing, deny it was her but the phone records proved it was them. It’s a big mess but sometimes I would rather deal with that than to keep paying for something that keeps messing up.
