The Bipolar Bear is a lighthearted application designed to raise awareness that mental health challenges exist.
The app is a randomized series of non sequitur one liners spoken by the app’s only character: the Bipolar Bear.
Comments made by the Bipolar Bear are sometimes upbeat and cheerful but sometimes frustrated and paranoid. At no time does the bear say anything vulgar. All the lines are meant to be funny, and most of them come pretty close.
We hope the app can be meaningful and will have a positive impact on the world population. Our goal is to harness the multiplier of comedic viral marketing.

Bipolar disorder impacts the lives of millions of people, and we are truly sympathetic to the needs and struggles of the individuals and families impacted by this condition.
This application should be met with an understanding of our positive intentions and be seen in the light it is intended. In no way do we wish to mock or belittle the challenges created by any mental health disorder, but instead to recognize it and help experts to develop better tools for overcoming these challenges. We meet these challenges with a sense of levity and a desire to help create change.
Meet the Bipolar Bear.
Good fun, and for a good cause, too. You should buy it. :)
I know one of the people who created Bipolar Bear, so I'm definitely biased. But Bipolar Bear is adorable. You touch his face, and you never know what he's going to say. Sometimes he's up, sometimes he's down, just like you'd expect from a Bipolar Bear. But whatever mood he's in, what's cool is that part of the purchase price is going to a charity that works with mentally ill people. One of my grandparents suffered with manic depression throughout their life, so I think it's great that the creators of this app are using it to raise awareness of bipolar disorder. I'm glad to help spread the word about it. The creators are donating 20% of the price of the app to a reputable mental health charity. So buy it already!
Cute little app!
This is a really cute app - just loosen up and let yourself laugh! If you are bipolar or know anyone who is, many of the lines will make you laugh just because they are so spot on. One of the best ways to get to grips with bipolar symptoms overall is to smile at them every once in a while. :)
Much like fart and burp apps, this app is completely pointless but it has some hysterical things to say. Compliments are peppered with random insults, like "you're not special", or "you are worthless". Silly, stupid, and completely hilarious, just like it says it is.
