Perspective - Daily Journal
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
A unique journal that captures your Thoughts, Moods, and Interests. Then prompts Reflection and Insight to help you make personal discoveries… yeah, a lofty goal for two blokes with a big idea!
This big idea started with a Life Calendar, a complete view of your time on Earth. Add to that a simple message-style Journal that’s quick, uncluttered, and feels more like you’re having a conversation between your "future" and your "past self”, and you get the idea.
We added Weekly Ratings, Reviews, and a way to measure the time you spend doing the things you love, (which we call Interests) all wrapped up in the chocolatey goodness we call Passcode Lock (for those prying eyes).
So, if you have an interest in:
• Practicing mindfulness to increase self-awareness
• Gaining perspective from past experiences
• Understanding what things matter the most
• Improving your mental health, and well-being
• Finding context to your emotions and generally feeling happier
…you might enjoy our flavor of Journaling.
Oh, and did we mention… It’s free!
What's New in Version 1.3.0
- iCloud Backup and Sync
We’ve been looking for an app that allows space to type thoughts, daily experiences, etc. The rating ability is unique and provides a nice visual of happy days vs less desirable days and an opportunity to reflect on them and grow. :)
The family primarily uses it to record breakthroughs, special moments, and things they’ve learned about themselves or others.
Here’s what we’ve experienced in the month or so we have used it:
+ great place to quickly jot down thoughts from the day or a “journal “ type entry.
+ fun questions that help you start recording thoughts
— Suggestion: expand the question list extensively and provide a list we can click on to choose questions; phrase the questions better, and base them off of cognitive or psychological studies done to improve critical thinking (or whatever); and double check the grammar used
+ Fairly easy interface after getting through and remembering steps from the introduction
— Suggestion: Provide a clickable table of contents (?) or reference section listing all features like journal, daily quotations, etc.
— Suggestion: Add features that expand the journaling option. For example, our family likes to climb in bed after a long day and reflect on the happenings of that day and how they impact life, relationships, etc. But right now that experience isn’t very engaging. Please make this an option so I can continue supporting the app.
Thank you for reading this review.
I discovered this little gem while I was using Penzu as my daily diary. Penzu kept losing my entries which was highly annoying. This particular journal is beautifully laid out, well thought through and super easy to use. There is a passcode lock function which was very important to me. The team behind this app is planning on adding additional features which it funds from donations by its users. You can also vote on which feature you would like to see them add next. The only negative I see is that there is no option to transfer your entries out of the app via email or in any other way. So if the app dies, your entries seemingly will die with it. So let's please not let this happen.
Truly has changed my perspective on life
I love the design and layout of this app. I also love the option to add interests and how much time you spend on them each day. Another great feature is that you can add insights to previous days, which has really helped me take time to reflect. This app lives up to its name. It has been a great way for me to realize how much I take for granted, and has helped me remember the positive things that happened to me usually outweighed the negative things. Which is easy for me to forget sometimes. This app has helped me to become more positive and optimistic about my future and less cynical and pessimistic about my past.
