Shim is a friend in your phone, who will help you reflect on the positive things in life - and strengthen your relationships to the people you care for.

“Shim reminds me of all the good things in my life” says one Shim user.

Chatting with Shim is like talking to a wise friend - but it also leads to three valuable things:

1. You get a chance to reflect on what you think is important in life
Shim helps you formulate what you think is important in life and define how you want to be. A conversation with Shim gives you new insight into friendship, family and values - as well as interesting questions that you might not reflect on otherwise.

2. It becomes easier to express your thoughts and feelings to family and friends
Though we may be aware of what our family and friends mean to us, we may not always express our thoughts and feelings. Shim guides you in doing just that. If your family and friends use Shim too, you can easily share thoughts and memories with each other.

3. The story of your life gets written down
You can talk to Shim about what’s happening in your life now as well as things that happened in the past that shaped you. Shim will help you reflect on what you’re grateful for, acknowledge the positive things in you life and understand how your life is influenced by those closest to you.

More quotes from users:

“It’s really nice to talk to someone who’s encouraging and interested and who cares about me”

“Shim makes it easier to express my thoughts and feelings”

“Shim has helped me keep in touch with friends that I don’t see that often.”

No good

Needs directions on how to use and then was belligerent asking for access to contacts. No thanks

Developer Response

Hi Sick Nai nai! Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback! The point of Shim asking for access to your contacts is for you to be able to share reflections with friends within the app, but you can for sure use Shim without giving Shim access to contacts, and not share or receive anything at all. We view sharing as one of the best values Shim can provide and psychological research has shown that expressing positive thoughts to your close ones boost well-being more than anything else. That’s why Shim brings this up early. Thanks anyway for giving Shim a chance, and for expressing your thoughts to us!
