On my way to being Super Better!!
About 1 1/2 years ago I left an emotionally abusive long-term relationship and felt very alive, full of gratitude and ready to live for the first time in almost two decades. It wasn't until I saw the TED talk that I realized there is a name for what I experienced: post-traumatic growth. Mcgonigal's philosophy has inspired me greatly and I feel like sharing it with all I see. I have found that gratitude leads to social circles that are more fulfilling. Gratitude leads to even more gratitude. There is still so much to learn and I am so excited to continue my journey with this app!
Warning - Broken and No Support
This application currently has several severe bugs, the biggest being one that will not even allow the user to sign into their account.
This bug makes the entire application useless.
What makes this worse is that the developers currently have no customer support. This bug happened to both myself and my wife, and when contacting the programmers, we received a pre-written email explaining how they had "gone off the grid" (I wish I was joking here, but I'm not).
What makes this absolutely offensive to me is that, unlike a game like Angry Birds, the goal of this application is to help people with very real and very serious problems such as depression, anxiety, and addiction.
To the programmers: you're abandoning the people you are trying to help.
Shame on you. You are being deceptive with this product.
Either take this application off of the App Store and stop taking money for a broken product, or fix this immediately.
If I still see this application on the App Store in 1 week and it is still broken, I will be contacting Apple so that they can remove it.
I like it, but...
When I first downloaded this app, it was great. Maybe, because I'm using it so much, I'm finding it less helpful and, sometimes, confusing.
There are a lot of packs that sound interesting that I'd like to load, but they all seem to be recommended for post-concussion recovery. Perhaps I didn't read the description well enough in the beginning, but I thought this whole app was geared toward making better--general--lifestyle habits, i.e., quitting smoking, adding exercise, becoming a happier person. Now, I'm finding I've exhausted a lot of the packs I originally started with and don't know where to turn next.
