+ Arianna Huffington writes about how gratitude exercises can have tangible benefits: “According to a study by researchers from the University of Minnesota and the University of Florida, having participants write down a list of positive events at the close of a day — and why the events made them happy — lowered their self-reported stress levels and gave them a greater sense of calm at night.”

*Thankful* is the most beautifully designed way to privately and easily record everything you are thankful for in your everyday life. Numerous studies have linked counting one’s blessings to healthy and improved mental and physical health. So...start counting and appreciating your blessings and change your life! Saving and later reviewing your personal thankful list will remind you of what makes you happy and healthy.

"One man's 7-year battle with cancer yielded gratitude, a 'thankful app' despite the hardships"
- Deseret News, November 25, 2013

The story behind "Thankful" is a very personal one for our family and friends. We created "Thankful" with our brother before his 7-year cancer battle ended. During his battle, he and his family wanted everyone to remember to be thankful for what is still good in the world, and to count all of the blessings we all have.

“Everybody has trials. Everybody has tragedies,” his wife says. “That’s why we come to this earth, and we came to a place where we realized we weren’t being picked on, that this was just the deal. …And so we found something that worked for us, and that was to count our blessings and to notice what was good. …It helped us be able to enjoy each other instead of being weighed down by all the fear, it helped lift us up.”

We hope that "Thankful" reminds you to be #thankful, and also helps you to remember all of the many blessings in your life - no matter how seemingly small.


+ We are always #thankful for our brother and our family, and we are absolutely #thankful for you!

Amazing App!

It's perfect. You write what you are thankful for and not only do you feel more positive and grateful, but this app will compliment you and every reason you are thankful for. It's so simple, nice, and elegant. It has tremendously helped me improve my life.

Not only that, but it has positive inspirations and quotes among other features. It's the best gratitude journal I've ever used. "Simplicity is the key to excellence," and this app fully conforms to that.

And another reason why it's a 5 star app is because I have rarely been asked to rate this app. Many other apps like this are always asking you to rate if you like their app, however this one does not. I'm not bombarded with ads, I'm not bombarded being asked to rate. This app is the ideal gratitude journal app that made me actively want to rate it the 5+ stars it deserves.

Developer Response ,

YOU are amazing! Thank you so much for the positive and grateful review! Thankful might eventually ask for a review (this does help us spread the word about thankful), but we made the setting extremely low so it does not bother people too much. Also, if you decline to review, we will respect that wish and only ask once. If anyone wants to review the app, we truly appreciate it (and there is a link in Settings to go directly to the page to rate it)!

We love hearing from you, and will make improvements based on your comments, so please keep the feedback coming! Send feedback to Thank you, again, for such a positive review!

We are #thankful for you!

Helps me cope with depression/anxiety

This app has been amazing. It prompts me everyday at 10pm to recall what I’m thankful for. Sometime I’m annoyed at getting my kids in bed etc. when 10pm comes I actually stop when I am notified. I love that I can mark my favorite moments for review . This app is so easy and clutter free. Not a bunch of work- simply put in what your thankful for and that’s it. I’m so thankful for this app. It forces me to find something to be thankful for. At first I would write things like I’m thankful for the sun etc. after being consistent I started taking the time to reflect and answer honestly.

With depression and anxiety it’s really important that I control my emotions. This app allows me to reflect and smile over the past. I’m so blessed by this app. Get it!!

Whoever created has a beautiful soul

Thank you for this app it is amazing and has been helping me through a really tough spot in my life. I’ve made many realizations about myself and will definitely be recommending this app to others! Thank you so much. ❤️
It has improved my mood a lot and I think a suggestion I have that would improve the app even more is to rate your mood each day you use the app because it’d be cool to see it move and what’s going on around that time!

Developer Response ,
