Hello Cruel World

By Apollic Software, LLC

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Introducing Hello Cruel World for iPhone and iPod.

Hello,Cruel World features a catalog of 101 alternatives to suicide that range from the playful (moisturize!), to the irreverent (shatter some family values), to the highly controversial. Designed to encourage readers to give themselves permission to unleash their hearts' harmless desires, the book has only one directive: "Don’t be mean." It is this guiding principle that brings its reader on a self-validating journey, which forges wholly new paths toward a resounding decision to choose life.
Tenderly intimate and unapologetically edgy, Kate Bornstein is the radical role model, the affectionate best friend, and the guiding mentor all in one.

Customer Reviews


I've suffered from depression for a while and I've been to the point where I was contemplating suicide. This really has helped me find new and fun ways to get past those thoughts. It has also helped me a lot during panic attacks. My friends love it when I follow #60, bake a cake, even though I usually bake cookies instead. The compliments and encouragement I receive when I bring in a batch of homemade cookies can make me forget all the bad things for a while. I love this app and would recommend it to anyone who has ever had those days when you feel like the entire world is against you.

I Highly Recommend!

About a year ago, I recovered from 4 years of major depression & self harm.
Multiple things helped me, including
your app here. I was surprised at first with your suggestions, but after getting to know the app & your motive behind it, I understood. Yes, it's about staying alive. It's not worth it to kill myself. All the tips are great. I support you :)
Thanks for helping me through my tough times ♡

Oh my gosh!!

This is amazing! I remember checking this book out at the library a few years ago... Never thought I'd ever see anything like this though. This is cool
