Writing down your negative thoughts and then discarding them can help you find peace.

Thought Detox is a private space to work through what's on your mind, with complete peace of mind—nothing you write is saved or sent anywhere. Explore your most private thoughts, on your most personal device.

Want to see how your mindfulness affects your week? Connect the app to Apple Health to track the time you spend working through negative thoughts.

See mindfulness trends over the past seven days in the app, or add them to your home screen as a widget. Thought Detox even integrates with Wind Down on iPhone, to let you quickly clear your head before bed.

Excellent for mental health!

I recently stumbled across this app and have found it to be very useful for keeping thoughts in check or venting about whatever is on my mind. The fact that none of whatever is typed is saved anywhere is reassuring.

However there is one suggestion I would like to make for the developers. When the “Release this” button is pressed, the note gets folded and the animation makes it feel like an email is being sent. That animation appears to be contradictory to the fact that nothing is saved. Perhaps a different animation would be better? Maybe the note going up in flames or is shredded instead? Just a more definitive animation for that note not being saved or sent anywhere.

Thanks so much for your support, and for your feedback! I've gotten similar comments from some testers, so I've added a suggestion on the app's public roadmap ( Feel free to add more suggestions there, or comment and vote on what's already there!

Beautiful, simple, helpful

If you find yourself ruminating on a negative thought, open this app, write it down and release it. What you write is disposed of, not sent or saved anywhere. The elegant animation folds it into an envelope and it’s whisked away. It’s surprisingly calming.
