Beaming with happiness!!
In the past year, I've been extremely dedicated to my own personal growth and what a treat to have stumbled upon the Ted talk starring the amazing creator of this app!! I'm a college student, so purchasing app's is mostly out of the question, but I had a feeling that SuperBetter was exactly what I needed & sure enough, it so was! It's such a creative and innovative way to combine science and self-improvement, and all at your fingertips to boot! I am so pleased with this tool, it keeps me on the right track and really puts a fun, supportive spin on scenarios that can be very emotionally trying. After just two months, I totally feel SuperBetter! :) :)
Gradual change is lasting change :-)
Excellent app. Use it to work on myself each day. It's so much better than having a static list of things to do, like "Healthy ways of coping 1-10 blah-blah...". Being able to choose "power ups" based on what I feel capable of in a tough situation and STILL having it count as a win allows me to feel like "I'm still doing my best, and it still counts, even if I've done much better on other days."
People who've battled PTSD/depression/chronic pain know what I'm talking about. :-)
One feature I would LOVE to have added is the option to add my own sound effects. Like the Final Fantasy "Battle Win!" sound or (of course) sounds from Super Mario games!!!!!
It appears as though the developers have abandoned this app. It is so confusing to use and hasn't been updated in more than a year despite all the comments and suggestions for improvement. The superbetter website itself has even been hacked.
The whole game is based on power packs based on certain goals, but only a handful are included and there's no way to create power packs based on specific personal goals. On the superbetter website one of the admins noted that they might add this function for an extra fee. I understand paying for pre-made power packs, but I don't want to pay to create my own content.
Looks like they used the TED talk to get us to spend $5 on this and don't bother actually provide the tools they promise will help us all be happier and accomplish our goals.
