Update: for the last few months I've been using the thought checker nearly every day, and I have noticed a change in how I respond to upsetting events, so hey, it works.
Overall I like this app. The big weakness is that the mood tracker only lets you do one mood per day. Also, some of the journal questions come across as cheesy or annoying or just unhelpful. However, other ones are direct and helpful, and I've already created a couple templates of my own that I think will be useful.
I like the thought checker: it's brief and convenient but also to the point. I like having the long list of suggested feelings and the option to pick more than one, and it's more convenient to have a list of distortions there rather than pulling out a piece of paper and having to go by memory when on the run. I also appreciate that there's an option to say there's no distortion but still a better way of looking at things. I've only looked at a couple of the activities but the apparent variety is impressive. And again, the convenience factor is amazing.
So thorough & evidenced-based
I rarely take the time to write reviews, but as both a mental health clinician and someone who suffers from major depressive disorder and anxiety, I'm so impressed by the practical utility of this app, first in probing the myriad ways that chronic distress undermines our real-world well-being, and second because of the myriad targeted, concrete & evidence-based strategies it suggests to flip the tables and improve our moods through simple shifts in conscious thought & action. Also love the personal commitment framework as practical strategy for real-life application.
Only quibble is that the daily mood & thought journaling interfaces are clunky-looking and not nearly as intuitive as a handful of otherwise mediocre & shamelessly pricey mood tracking & CBT apps on the market. I also wished that this somehow integrated with iOS' 'health' app, which I already use for diet & activity tracking. Were developers to redress those two issues, I hesitate to speculate what I actually might pay for the result.
Life and thought changer
This app has been a complete life changer for me. I've been using the app for several years as I struggle with depression and generalized anxiety disorder. Granted, sometimes when you are so emotionally worked up, you forget the resource is here, but when I do remember, I stop, use it, and am able to re-process my thoughts and realize the distributions. I then always feel better.
