Waste of money

It is not worth the high price. Is minimalism the new luxury? A kid cld have written this app in a day. You cannot even add free text like you would a real journal. They should call it gratitude journal, because that is what it is. Five minute journal is misleading title.

This journal is making me want to wake up and think about my upcoming day positively. It takes just a little time but still gives a lot of back by filling it out every single day and night. I love that i can add pictures what helps me to reflect and remember the day even more. The app is minimalist what i love. It is very clean and simple to use. 👌❤️
