"One man's 7-year battle with cancer yielded gratitude, a 'thankful app' despite the hardships"
- Deseret News, November 25, 2013

The story behind "thankful" is a very personal one for our family and friends. We created "thankful" with our brother before his 7-year cancer battle ended. During his battle, he and his family wanted everyone to remember to be thankful for what is still good in the world, and to count all of the blessings we all have.

“Everybody has trials. Everybody has tragedies,” his wife says. “That’s why we come to this earth, and we came to a place where we realized we weren’t being picked on, that this was just the deal. …And so we found something that worked for us, and that was to count our blessings and to notice what was good. …It helped us be able to enjoy each other instead of being weighed down by all the fear, it helped lift us up.”

We hope that "thankful" reminds you to be #thankful, and also helps you to remember all of the many blessings in your life - no matter how seemingly small.

We are always #thankful for our brother and our family, and we are absolutely #thankful for you!

+ Numerous studies have linked counting one’s blessings to healthy and improved mental and physical health. Oprah Winfrey kept a gratitude journal for a full decade without fail — and urges you all to do the same. In Arianna Huffington’s book "Thrive", Arianna writes about how gratitude exercises can have tangible benefits. She writes, “According to a study by researchers from the University of Minnesota and the University of Florida, having participants write down a list of positive events at the close of a day — and why the events made them happy — lowered their self-reported stress levels and gave them a greater sense of calm at night.”

Amazing App!


It's perfect. You write what you are thankful for and not only do you feel more positive and grateful, but this app will compliment you and every reason you are thankful for. It's so simple, nice, and elegant. It has tremendously helped me improve my life.

Not only that, but it has positive inspirations and quotes among other features. It's the best gratitude journal I've ever used. "Simplicity is the key to excellence," and this app fully conforms to that.

And another reason why it's a 5 star app is because I have rarely been asked to rate this app. Many other apps like this are always asking you to rate if you like their app, however this one does not. I'm not bombarded with ads, I'm not bombarded being asked to rate. This app is the ideal gratitude journal app that made me actively want to rate it the 5+ stars it deserves.

Lovely app, needs some updates


I love the simplicity of this app and how much it boosts my mood to reflect what I am grateful for.

It could use a few updates though. I would like to be able to scroll through all my thankful notes. The dates and calendar seem to be off. It would be nice to have a single feed with what I'm thankful for an inspirational quotes.

Also, I am an atheist and the purchases or themes seem to be geared towards Christians. It would be awesome to make it more inclusive of other faiths and the non-religious.

Been using this app for years


Been using this app for years and it has never let me down. This thankful app is truly something to be thankful for!

I love how you can print your thankfuls. I record daily, then print them every December 31st and store a hard copy of my 365 days of thankfuls...going on 4 years worth. What a great gift for my daughter one day-to see that her mom was thankful each and every day. ❤️
