This is a piece of technology to transform your state of mind; your phone will never have been so useful.


Prioritising mental well-being is key, but when time is short, we often let things slip. This app delivers important reminders and ideas at speed wherever you might be.

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!

Home Tab is janky

The home page stutters terribly when I scroll (iPhone 13 Pro). This mostly happens immediately after opening the app, presumably because it’s trying to refresh a bunch of data automatically on start (it’s smooth after things settle down, if I wait a bit). But I want to start scrolling immediately after opening the app, and I don’t know what the app is trying to do behind the scenes.

Also, there is no clear way to manually “refresh” the page (like pull down or double tap Home in tab). Instead, the app seems to automatically refresh for you. Sometimes it’s pulling the rug underneath you while you are reading something interesting.

Can refresh be optional? Like a message at the top that says “New update available, pull to refresh”. This would solve both of my problems, I think.

My life therapist on-the-go!

If you’ve enjoyed school of life videos and are craving more depth and well organized content, go ahead and get this app. Read about a topic or two on the train or before falling asleep and you’ll begin to enjoy your screen time like never before without any regrets.

Hi Shruti - Thank you for such a great review! We're delighted to hear you're enjoying the app and we can't wait to continue to add content and features for you!
