****A message from Carla, the creator of Gratitude Journal****

Thank you for getting Gratitude! Years ago I discovered the power of gratitude after my father passed away. It turned my life around from a train wreck to incredible happiness.

My goal is to help others discover how the simple act of saying "thank you" each day can transform your life, bringing you meaning and purpose.

Great app but dump the location on startup

I have been using the app for over a year (more?) and I like it. Still pretty simple way to start your day focused on what is important. Has a daily inspirational quote and you can add photos and the quote to your daily list. This update fixed many annoying features added to the previous update. However I would be eternally grateful if it did not start each time with a warning that it cannot find my location and to turn in location services. This is a journal, not a map to travel app. (I know where I am when journaling and if I am traveling I know how turn on location services!) So please don't warn me every single time I launch the app. I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun way to start the day!

Great start!

What a nice, simple idea. I am liking this app. It has found a spot on my first page and I'm enjoying it daily. I'm noticing some things that bother me though. The icons on the main page look the same for every entry. It would be neat to be able to change these to something else, like moods perhaps to append to each post. Also, I'd like to see more personalization for the app. Paper styles, main view styles, stickers and maybe a little less branding overall. ;) Make it feel like ours! Other than that I highly recommend this app and look forward to this addition to my daily routine. It totally helps you put things into perspective and makes you think about your daily relationships no matter what your mood is at the time. Nice job devs!

Simple and very effective!

This is one of my favorite apps! It's easy to use and has just enough functionality for me. It has daily reminders and is quick and painless enough for me to find something positive in my day. A gratitude journal is a great idea and is very intuitive with such a simple interface.

It'd be even better if it had iPhone 5 optimization! The one negative I experience is the fact that none of the different bullet point styles (like flowers or peace signs) line up correctly like the default one does.

Still, highly recommended!
