Description

A unique journal that captures your Thoughts, Moods, and Interests. Then prompts Reflection and Insight to help you make personal discoveries… yeah, a lofty goal for two blokes with a big idea!

This big idea started with a Life Calendar, a complete view of your time on Earth. Add to that a simple message-style Journal that’s quick, uncluttered, and feels more like you’re having a conversation between your "future" and your "past self”, and you get the idea.

We added Weekly Ratings, Reviews, and a way to measure the time you spend doing the things you love, (which we call Interests) all wrapped up in the chocolatey goodness we call Passcode Lock (for those prying eyes).

So, if you have an interest in:

• Practicing mindfulness to increase self-awareness

• Gaining perspective from past experiences

• Understanding what things matter the most

• Improving your mental health, and well-being

• Finding context to your emotions and generally feeling happier

…you might enjoy our flavor of Journaling.

Oh, and did we mention… It’s free!

Enjoyable and Relaxing

AlexandriaMichele

Usually with apps like this you’re bombarded with overly joyful questions or quotes that really make me want to just delete the app. But this app is very subtle in a calming and enjoyable feel. You have your mood, which isn’t 50 different choices making me question what I was feeling the whole week before that, and you have the calendar view that you can add an entry to everyday with whatever you want, add a pic and even has a wild card question button that I ended up tapping 4 times in the same day due to the simplicity of the questions. They didn’t make me over think things, like most apps do. And they didn’t require me to brainstorm a whole response for one simple entry. Of course you have your little personalizations you can adjust to your liking, as well as adding your interests and viewing your insights. I’m not exactly sure what the discover section was for, I assumed it was for messages from the developers, which is a normal feature for most apps. When I get the money to donate I definitely will! This is a genuine app that I plan to keep!

We’ve been looking for an app that allows space to type thoughts, daily experiences, etc. The rating ability is unique and provides a nice visual of happy days vs less desirable days and an opportunity to reflect on them and grow. :)

The family primarily uses it to record breakthroughs, special moments, and things they’ve learned about themselves or others.

Here’s what we’ve experienced in the month or so we have used it:

+ great place to quickly jot down thoughts from the day or a “journal “ type entry.
+ fun questions that help you start recording thoughts
— Suggestion: expand the question list extensively and provide a list we can click on to choose questions; phrase the questions better, and base them off of cognitive or psychological studies done to improve critical thinking (or whatever); and double check the grammar used
+ Fairly easy interface after getting through and remembering steps from the introduction
— Suggestion: Provide a clickable table of contents (?) or reference section listing all features like journal, daily quotations, etc.
— Suggestion: Add features that expand the journaling option. For example, our family likes to climb in bed after a long day and reflect on the happenings of that day and how they impact life, relationships, etc. But right now that experience isn’t very engaging. Please make this an option so I can continue supporting the app.
Thank you for reading this review.

Perfect Journal App

NickleMarie

I usually don’t write reviews but this app deserves the time and effort.

So I have been wanting to start journaling for awhile but sitting down and doing it was always difficult. This app is perfect because you can add updates throughout the day. If you are having trouble getting started you can sift through some mindful prompts.
I also like that you can rate each day. I’ve been focusing on my mental wellbeing and being mindful of which emotions I let rule my day. Seeing from day to day and week to week how my mood shifts help me be more mindful and in control.
One feature that I found really neat was the interest ratings. You can choose things that are important to you and rate how well you did in those specific areas. So you can keep track of individual goals without them having to impact the rating of the whole day. Its also a way that you can tag days with key words that sum up the focus of your day.

Overall I really love this app. It’s easy to use and you get out of it what you put in. If you just want a place to store memories it works for that. If you what a goal tracker you got one. If, like me, you are trying to me more mindful of your mental state from day to day then it is absolutely perfect!

Developer Response

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this extensive review. We're very glad to hear Perspective is working for you. We tried to create an app that does what its name suggests, put things into perspective. The idea with the Interests was to give you an overview of how focusing (or not focusing enough) on the things that matter to you affect your wellbeing in the long run. We believe that's one of the main issues people are facing nowadays, not having (or not taking) the time to focus on themselves. We wanted to encourage people to find the time, hence the quite intimidating life calendar. Any suggestions you might have after using Perspective for a while, we'd love to hear them. Thanks again!
