Can't take photo


On iOS 11 crashes when taking a photo. App feedback feature doesn't work (send button disabled). I don't have Mail installed, I use Outlook

Great app


I really love this app. Just an easy way to feel good. Everyone should have it.

User friendly and it works


I've switched to 5 minute journal after using a paper-based journal of similar nature. Both are really good however I find I'm attending to my journal practice more by having the journal on my phone. I resisted at first thinking I preferred to put pen to paper, but practice timing minimalism I hate having "stuff". Putting a paper based journal away when ppl visit means that sometimes I'd forget to get it back out and then out of site out of mind and my practice was interrupted. I've found the morning and evening reminders helpful to keep me accountable to my practice of journaling and gratitude.

I like how I can add images to make entries more powerful. Great app!
