Ratings and Reviews
Thank you Raul :)
You wouldn’t believe how hard it was to find something that simply sends me random notes from myself. I don’t want other people’s affirmations; I want to write my own. And I want them to be random. This allows exactly that. All the other affirmation apps are ridiculous and very confusing to use. This interface is about as basic as it gets....as it should be. And generously offered for free by the developer.
Only thing that would make it better is if you could set it to do more than 9 per day. But that limit does increase if you set it to fewer days. So I just re-set it each morning to the current day only, and get my barrage of reminders that the world isn’t ending. (Or maybe it is? It probably is. But that’s another conversation...) This probably doesn’t make sense but it will once you download the app.
Thanks very much for this app. Exactly what I wanted. Good energy here 🙏
EDIT: managed to solve my widget problem! So it seems like allowing notifications is essential no matter how youre using the app (i should have listened the first time!). Once i did that, the widget worked. Clicking into the app and dragging the slider (to trigger an update) will show another quote. The widget does not unfortunately refresh throughout the day, but at least i have a way to refresh manually.
For anyone who doesnt want to use this app notification style (i.e. widget only) i was able to turn off all forms of notifications (lock, notif center, banners) without turning off the general Allow Notification setting. And it seems this was enough for yapp too!
Original review (the rest is still relevant):
Wow, thank you so much for this awesome free app! Its exactly what i was looking for, as other users mentioned as well.
I am writing this also to report a bug. The widget does not work, which is my preference instead of notifications - please ensure when you can that reminders are properly loaded into the widget. A bonus would be if the quotes could cycle randomly on a daily schedule instead of weekly, like other quote apps such as ‘I am’ do.
Thank you so much again! Btw you should add a donate option, with a suggested amount! I would gladly pitch in.
Good idea. Now also with good execution.
The idea for this app is great. The clean, minimal design is pretty good too.
When I wrote the first version of this review, the app did not work as expected. However, trying it again, after an update, and it seems to work perfectly now.
It’s a good way to remind yourself of your goals, and to give yourself reminders, challenges, and prompts that’ll pull you back on whatever path you keep straying from, and nudge you forward.
It can, for example, help you to
- re-center (“Take a minute and just breathe”)
- re-focus on the important things during the day (“Are you really doing the most important thing you could be doing right now?”)
- take a birds eye view of your work process and efficiency (“Could you automate or delegate what you’re doing right now?”)
- invite creativity into your work (“Could you do this with half the budget? Half the time?”, “Could you do it without a computer?”)
Developer Response ,
[updated algorithm on the last update, guaranteed random reminders & times for every day of the week]
Sorry to hear you are not happy with Yapp, the messages to be displayed are picked randomly, so maybe they repeat sometimes, but having 10+ should give you a nice variety. The time range of the day you receive the reminders can be changed in the settings, please try increasing the time your day starts and finishes to get a nice random time effect, if you have a very narrow window of time to receive them, they would probably pop up at similar times. Hope it helps! Thanks
