Morning Pages is a personal daily journal with emotional analysis powered by artificial intelligence.

Writing a stream of consciousness for 5-10 minutes every day reduces stress and can help you with goal-setting. The app performs real-time emotional analysis of your text to detect your emotions, mood, and topics you write about, and then chart your emotional state over time.

You can use Morning Pages as a mindfulness journal, as a warm-up for writing for the day, or as an emotion tracker.

Morning Pages is built on the idea that lies at the core of Julia Cameron's book "The Artist's Way."

* Write about 500 words or more every morning.
* See what emotions prevail in your text.
* Track how your mood changes over time.
* Reveal topics your writing is associated with.
* Set up a reminder to build up a writing habit.
* Print and Share your pages.
* Protect your pages with a password that only you know.

Still doesn't save until you hit the check button and say yes


New version says don't worry about losing what you write because we save it to iCloud. Thanks for trying guys! One step closer. However, nothing is saved until I hit the save command and say yes. Up to then if the app crashes, my phone runs out of battery, or I switch to a memory-hungry app I will lose what I've written. Look at how Notes does it. Not one letter can be lost. Example:
1. Open Notes
2. New note
3. Type a letter - say A
4. Double-click and swipe up on notes to kill it
5. Open Notes
RESULT: Your one-letter note is still there. Apple doing things well.

Old review:
One really big flaw
This would be a good - maybe great - app if they fix one big flaw. For me losing data is a monster pet peeve. So when I wrote several pages I really was unhappy when the app lost them.

How did this happen? Simple: until you hit Save your text seems to be only stored in memory. If you switch to another app that uses a lot of memory iOS may kill this app and your writing will be lost. Apple tells devs to save everything before relinquishing control but it looks like this app doesn't take that advice.

I'll try the app again when I hear they've fixed the problem. AFTER I've verified the fix by double-clicking the home button and swiping up on the app to kill it. If my writing is gone so is the app!

I'm very sorry you've lost your data. Thank you for such detailed explanation of a problem. To be honest, we weren't considering this autosave scenario, we thought that you shouldn't distract when you write your pages because it's not like notes, you should always complete them, and not come back for adding something or editing. But you're right, there are plenty ways how this flow can be spoiled: app crashes, system kills the app, user kills the app. I'll address the issue and make you know when it's fixed.

Great app!

I really love this app for starting my day and clearing my head. The only thing I don’t like is the analytics: the “emotions and topics” as well as the “mood” are almost always off. It will say I talked about “U.K. top 100 music” or “Black and white film” when I have not even mentioned a song or movie. The same goes for mood, I can say nothing but good things about my day and it will say I was “58% negative”. I ignore that part of the app for the most part, but if you are going to have it it should have more accuracy.

Developer Response

We're happy to hear that it helps you to clear the mind, it is the main purpose of the app!
Yes, unfortunately, analytics is not always perfect. Under Settings menu you can find some explanations of how analytics works and why it shows wrong things sometimes. Thank you for your feedback, we'll consider how to make this part of the app less confusing.

Almost Perfect


I use this app as part of my anxiety management plan. It’s great for a morning brain dump to clear my head and get me ready for the day. The only downside is that that analytics are off for the “common themes” analysis. Sometimes random themes appear like “UK Top 100 music” etc. It makes it hard for me bc if the analytics were correct, I’d be able to more easily pick up on thought/worry patterns that I’m falling into. Please fix that issue and it’ll be perfect!

Developer Response

Thank you for the feedback! It's great to know that the app helps you.
We're currently working on the analytics issue and it should be fixed in the nearest release. I'll get back to you once it's fixed.
