Great tool to manage depression


New review of the updated version: this version is much more colorful and easier to use. Easier to navigate and I can find the update my mood and journal page faster. Finding a pen pal who shares the same challenges is a snap, you can also join a support group. If you have emotional challenges, give this app a try, it has truly made a difference for me.

I have only been using this for about 2 weeks, but I see an improvement in my moods. I, like a lot of people have depression and have been in therapy for it. It is often inconvenient to journal my feelings and thoughts since I don't carry my paper journal with me. This app is a great tool, I can track my moods throughout the day and see what happened to make me feel that way. I can't wait to see my therapist again to show her my new journal. I find it difficult to remember my moods over the past month when I see my therapist, but this will change that, I will be able to show her how I felt and what caused the good or bad emotions.

Love it.. journaling and mood tracking and support system without judgement


I can use this app to share my private thoughts and my current mood multiple times a day, and the anonymous pen pals and community can support you in how they can... and personally I can be free to express my thoughts and talk to my pen pals without worrying about anyone judging me since they don't know me. Every penpal connection is made uniquely for you and that other person. You don't even have the same "name" in different convos! I LOVE the anonymity of it all, and I can track my mood and see how my life has been going up and down and adjust myself according to how I see fit.

I used to use Optimism, but that lost support so I'm SO THANKFUL I found this app. Also, the chat room with the developers is just awesome. I suggest things all the time to them that I think would go great. I know they're working hard, and the app can go a long way for people with mental issues, with some improvements.

Go Stigma to fight the stigma!

I use this app A LOT

I've had this app for at least a couple years now and for the most part it's perfect. I love seeing my mood and how it changes based upon different scenarios and such. The app is extremely helpful for people trying to understand their emotions and what they're going for. Although the community can be a little triggering at times, it is usually a good space to voice how you feel to people, or journal in private. My only real issue is the penpals. I use the app very often and I've never found a penpal that talks to me consistently. They always seem to stop responding, or just drop off of the face of the earth. I still haven't truly found a good supportive penpal. Which is sad; but I don't think it's the apps fault. Either way- I completely recommend this app to ANYONE he needs it.
