What's New in Version 1.12
Bug fix and code update.
The reviews so far seem to be all over the place
So I'll try to set it straight: this app is amazingly useful if you're willing to work with it. Are you willing to feel better? It might not be incredibly useful in the heat of a panic attack or at the height of anxiety where you can't even sit still, let alone read about calming tips. But if you catch the attack early on or would like to make that nagging feeling go away--the fear of the anxiety, the fear of what triggers it--this is a straight forward and simple tool.
I just can't figure it out
Over the years I've downloaded this app and thoughtfully completed its
many steps no less than three times, and probably more like four to five if I'm being honest. But each time, no matter how much time has elapsed between my attempts, I'm unable to get past a point of imputing my answers. Every time I try to use (or even just to see) the plan it supposedly creates, it app thinks I'm attempting to edit my former answers and launches me back to the start. The few mediation so have reached (by some unexplained miracle) were not worth the headache, time and space (on the phone) lost.
This app is useful but there is Fixable flaws
Here's the thing, my therapist recommended this app to help with my anxiety. And it the most part it helps. But there is one thing that does bother me; When you do the check-in (in the individual tab) you cannot see your entries. It would be useful to me, my therapist and the others who may try this app. I'd give it a 4.7/10 so you did a good job, well done.
