I originally wrote a bad review for this app but am now updating to a good one. I’m an annual subscriber and love their content. Excellent bites of therapy and philosophy for easy consumption and always thought provoking. Initially the app wouldn’t allow me access or recognize my subscriber log in. No easy support link could be found to report the issue. It would deny access to paid content after my log in. They have since responded and provided a fix. Happy with the app now and use it a lot. The content is excellent. I adore School of Life materials, books, everything and the subscription is well worth the money. I enjoy the easy access through my phone. I do hope they put more of their videos on the app.

Excellent resource, needs dark mode

I lean on the wisdom and encouragement in this app daily! The subscription is well worth it. It could really improve by having a dark mode available. It’ much too bright for my tired eyes, especially at night or during insomnia when I need the app most (even with phone settings at the lowest brightness with blue light dimmed).

Developer Response ,

Thank you for this great review! We're constantly adding new features and we're happy to announce that a dark mode will be coming in a future release at some point in the next few months. We're working hard to make the app better and better for you so keep taking the updates and we'll keep releasing them. Thank you!

The best app I have downloaded since Obama was in office.

The magic of school of life is somehow translated perfectly in how this app • operates (the light, genius of something so easy as the card flip. but I look forward to flipping it every single day... sparking my joy & curiosity.) • and the offerings - so many card deck themes and question cards and for any occasion… question and multiple choice (but the UX interface is innovative creative and unexpected!) about your view on something or feelings or xyz and then directs you to just the video article game or learning that might be of interest. I should be getting paid for this but I’m not - if you’re interested in a copywriter/marketing brand fan of the year on deck, I’m yours.

But seriously, if you are a lover of school of life, you are going to be so happy once you see what they’ve dreamt up for you when you open it and see.


A song link could be cool, and definitely add widgets with a thought of the day or the like or an image w word like the card Flip.

Thank you!


Developer Response ,

Hello Megan, thank you so much for your kind words, we're so stoked that you absolutely adore our app! Widgets are certainly a great idea, thanks for that we'll add it to our ever growing list of "cool-things-to-add-later!" :)
