The work we do each day to care for our families can be gratifying, but it can also feel invisible and frustrating. We see you and the ways you take care of the people you love, so we created Tend, a holistic journaling app for moms - by moms.

With Tend, you can keep track of how you spend your day using an effortless task manager, then take a moment to journal your thoughts and reflect on your priorities.


* Add Daily Tasks: Select from a comprehensive list of caregiving jobs
* Add Details: Note how many times you completed a task and how much time it took
* Quotes: Get inspired with a library of motivational quotes to brighten your day
* Add Journal Entries: Do a quick mental health check in, jot down a note, and add photos
* Dashboard: See your important work in a snapshot, track it over time and see trends in your mood
* Personalize: Use the profile to customize your task list and select sweary language in your quotes


Use Tend at the end of your day to reflect on the outstanding job you did caring for your family. Whether you're a full-time stay at home parent, you do paid work outside of the home, or a combination of the two, we know someone is preparing food, washing dishes, and doing laundry.

Tend's gorgeous task manager is like a sticker chart for the invisible work you do each day. It's exceptionally satisfying to check off your work and watch the colors appear. Add additional information to each task, like the number of times you completed a task and how much time it took.


After you record each of your tasks for the day, we invite you to take a moment to acknowledge your state of mind. We're moms too, so we know how difficult it is to find a moment for quiet reflection. That's why we created a super easy and visually satisfying interface where you can track your mood, make a short note of your day, and upload photos of the cute, funny, messy, outrageous things your kids did today.


Tend's dashboard displays the results of your hard work in one place. Use it to pat yourself on the back for a job well done, take stock of the way you spend your time, or open conversations about how to share this work with your family. Our unique mood chart offers you an insight into the impact of this work on your mental health.

Tend is a journal & task manager, but most importantly, it's an outlet for self-reflection and celebration. When you take the time to track & view your day to day tasks, record your feelings, and become a part of a safe community, you'll see a positive shift in your mental health and well-being.

Tend is not about self-improvement or increased productivity. We already know that you're doing amazing things. We invite you to acknowledge your hard work and use the information you gather over time in whatever way best suits your life.

You are not alone. We're with you every step of the way.

At Persistiny, our mission is to support mothers and other caregivers, every single day. When you use Tend, you'll become a part of our community. We look forward to bringing you content that helps you to make sense of the information you gather.

Completely unusable

Always defaults to 2019 in the calendar. I go to asked tasks for today and they never appear on my to-do list. No point in having this app at all since it doesn’t even work.

No 2020 Calendar

I was very excited to try to use this, but there isn’t a calendar for this year. Totally unusable.

Developer Response ,
