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!

Ratings and Reviews
A perspective on Perspective
I am new to journaling. It has been suggested to me by friends and family over the years, but I thought it would be a waste of time. I was wrong. For me, very wrong. The application certainly has many features that paper doesn’t. I won’t waste your time there. What I will share is how easy and intuitive the many features are. I quickly type into my fingerprint locked journal throughout the day. Some thoughts good, so not so much. The ability to append pics to entries is gaining importance for me. The “Insights” feature which allows you to comment on previous days entries is easy to use and emotionally powerful. I have enjoyed the simple uplifting push notifications that wish you a good day or celebrate the day you just had. The application is stand alone, so no data leaves your device unless you want it to. That’s refreshing. Although they don’t require payment for Perspective, I decided to pay $50. I would have spent almost that on paper, binder, etc. and would have never used them. This application I use constantly. As an aside, for those out there that are in some form of professional counseling, reading my journal aloud to my therapist was very helpful to me and my counselor. You don’t need to be crazy to use this app. But you might be crazy not to.
Enjoyable and Relaxing
Usually with apps like this you’re bombarded with overly joyful questions or quotes that really make me want to just delete the app. But this app is very subtle in a calming and enjoyable feel. You have your mood, which isn’t 50 different choices making me question what I was feeling the whole week before that, and you have the calendar view that you can add an entry to everyday with whatever you want, add a pic and even has a wild card question button that I ended up tapping 4 times in the same day due to the simplicity of the questions. They didn’t make me over think things, like most apps do. And they didn’t require me to brainstorm a whole response for one simple entry. Of course you have your little personalizations you can adjust to your liking, as well as adding your interests and viewing your insights. I’m not exactly sure what the discover section was for, I assumed it was for messages from the developers, which is a normal feature for most apps. When I get the money to donate I definitely will! This is a genuine app that I plan to keep!
So after days of searching for some kind of app to help me get my racing important thoughts straight and not forget what I want to desperately remember... Good helped me stumble upon perspective. I was skeptical after downloading and disliking several other apps that I was disappointed with but finally the search has ended. They don't charge for the app and there are no in-app purchases required. You can read what their mission statements are and decide for yourself if you agree with their mission to just help people who become who struggle with their thoughts (like I do) I think you won't be disappointed. This app is so helpful and inspiring and truly helps you see perspectives you might miss that will improve your quality of life. I really think these people are trying to make a difference! Thank you for what you are doing, "two hungry developers"! ❤🙏
