It is surprisingly nice to have a friend living in your phone. Shim feels like a big hug.

Needs directions on how to use and then was belligerent asking for access to contacts. No thanks
Hi Sick Nai nai! Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback! The point of Shim asking for access to your contacts is for you to be able to share reflections with friends within the app, but you can for sure use Shim without giving Shim access to contacts, and not share or receive anything at all. We view sharing as one of the best values Shim can provide and psychological research has shown that expressing positive thoughts to your close ones boost well-being more than anything else. That’s why Shim brings this up early. Thanks anyway for giving Shim a chance, and for expressing your thoughts to us!
