A daily gratitude journal that is simple and completely customizable. Whether you like to journal with the keyboard or in your own handwriting, this app lets you do both!

The benefits of a regular gratitude practice are becoming increasingly clear, as a plethora of recent studies confirm. Science is proving that gratitude practice, including gratitude journaling, is a very efficient and effective way to improve your quality of life.

Better than an old-fashioned journal, this app is carried with you everywhere, on both your iPhone and iPad. Your journal is completely private with no sign ups or logins, your data is stored only on your device (and can be protected with a passcode).

In Five Minutes of Gratitude, you can:

- journal in your own handwriting, using a stylus or Apple Pencil
- journal with a keyboard
- completely customize your daily questions to get the most from each day
- add and customize inspiring daily notes or quotes to the top of each page (this is a great way to keep yourself in tune with your goals each day)
- add a passcode to keep your journal private
-use it on your iPhone and iPad

All you need in order to realize the massive benefits of gratitude journaling is a few minutes in the morning and a few minutes in the evening.
In the morning, you will respond to a few simple questions that will help you to think about what you appreciate and what you hope to accomplish today. Then in the evening, you will take a few minutes to reflect upon and appreciate all the good that happened that day.

The free version is fully functional with the following exceptions:
These features are only available in the premium version (one-time upgrade):
-customize daily questions
-customize 'notes to yourself'
-passcode lock
-change background appearance

Bug issues

Been using this for a month now and everything that I have written has been deleted. 😔. Very disappointed.

The app is very glitchy (text get deleted, penciling gets deleted, I can’t properly use copy and paste). Disappointing.

Awesome! But...

So far I am LOVING this app, it's exactly what I was looking for and helps me keep a positive attitude on life. My only complaint is that it seem to delete the last sentence, so if I stop after writing 3 things in "today will be great because" and close the app, when I reopen it, there will only be 2 of my 3 things remaining... That's a pretty disappointing bug and can counteract the positive vibes at times, can't wait until it's fixed 😊. I do think there needs to be a calendar view so that it's easier the go back and look at the positive things that happened onna previous day or see how well one is doing at writing every day as well, but that just more of a suggestion lol
