Ratings and Reviews
Provides great perspective
I’ve always spent a lot of time and energy worrying about things that may or may not actually happen, and if they do, may or may not end up as bad as I feared. Using this app has allowed me to verbalize my fears, categorize them, and reflect back on them. In doing so, I’m able to identify unnecessary worry more quickly when something similar occurs. I like to use the notes section of each event to spill all my thoughts, set a reminder to revisit the event, and (as much as possible) just forget about it until then. Because I verbalized all my thoughts and worries, I’m able to obsess over them less on a daily basis. And when I revisit it, it’s almost always not as bad as I had thought it would be.
Customer service is also fantastic. They are quick to respond to questions and very receptive to suggestions.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review, it means a lot to us. We appreciate every word you said as it clearly conveys the purpose of the app better than our app description! We are really glad that Worry Watch works for you.

Write it down and walk away
This is a fantastic app that helps me get my anxieties out and find some relief. I worry about the most random things and can never seem to let them go until the outcome has arrived. This adds a lot whole lot of additional stress in my life I don’t need.
With this app, I’m able to write down my worry, set a reminder, and walk away from worrying about it. After I write it down, I feel so much better and 80% of the time I can drop whatever it is I’m worrying about, knowing the reminder will alert me to record the outcome. I feel that the more I use it, the more I will be able to rid my mind of my worry once written down and bring that 80% to 100%.
I love seeing the percentages of the outcomes and realizing that what worries me is usually never as bad as I had thought.

Thank you so much for the fantastic review and sharing your experience using the app. We are really glad that you find Worry Watch statistics feature helpful in managing your anxiety.
Panic Disorder and PTSD
I have suffered panic attacks for longer than I can remember. This app helps not only track them for therapy use, but offer interactive questions and prompts to address that anxiety. I was finally diagnosed with PTSD three months ago, which have caused the panic attacks to significantly increase. I found this app by pure chance, but already extremely happy with it. Thank you.
