About this app

Are you struggling to identify, understand, process, regulate, and communicate your emotions? Do you find it difficult to connect with others? You're not alone. Every 1 in 10 people have alexithymia, difficulty, or inability to identify, understand, and express emotions.

Animi is a free app (currently only in English) that helps you learn about your emotions, understand their causes, and manage them effectively. Based on the latest research on alexithymia and emotions, Animi is designed to improve alexithymia, emotional awareness, and emotional intelligence, and over time help you build emotional vocabulary and understand the nuances of hundreds of feelings and emotions. With Animi, the most precise and extensive mood meter, you'll be able to:

- Take an alexithymia test and learn your alexithymia score indicating how severely you are disconnected from your emotions

- Learn about your emotions and how to identify them

- Identify & log your emotions with the help of our tools (on a much more detailed and granular level than mood trackers)

- Understand the causes of your emotions

- Learn quick breathing techniques to regulate emotions (like cyclic physiological sighing, bhastrika, or resonance breathing)

- Learn how to communicate emotions in a productive way

- Journal about your emotions with the help of introspective, reflective prompts

- Tag your emotion logs and journals and get insights over time

- Manage your emotions effectively

And over the longer period of using the app:

- Reduce your alexithymia score

- Improve your relationships

- Enhance your mental and physical health

Download Animi now and start improving your emotional awareness today!

Disclaimer: Our mission is to build a solution that improves alexithymia, and that's also the reason why we collect the anonymized alexithymia test data, so we know whether the current app succeeds at that. Your sensitive journal data stays on the device. In the future, if there is a good enough reason, like a feature that might be very helpful and would require storing user data in the cloud, we might do so, but we'll let you know in advance about the change. Right now, we are only collecting metadata necessary to evaluate the effectiveness and improve the app. We don't share the data with any third-parties nor sell it or use it for any kind of advertisement.

Great concept to help those with Alexithymia. I'd hoped it could help me. However the body scan is of no use to me as I also live with multiple disabilities & chronic illnesses so the way I feel physically doesn't indicate how I feel emotionally. The other option doesn't help either as I can only detect positive or negative & my illnesses also affect energy levels.

Hi Tandri, thank you for the feedback! Could you please message me at bolek@animiapp.com? I would love to learn about your use case and whether we might be able to improve the app and the identification tools to accommodate your situation. I have some ideas but would like to inquire more - thanks! Bolek, CEO

Great App. I've just had one minor issue with the written personal log. There seems to be a margin issue when you reach the very bottom of the text. You can see this if the log is long enough. The last line of text would not be fully seen even if you scroll all the way down. That's all. Thanks for the amazing app

Thank you for your kind feedback, Jared! We are aware of this problem, it seems to be a bit device dependent, tried to fix it. Please update your app to the latest version when you see an option and let me know at bolek@animiapp.com whether it is fixed now on your device - thanks!

Early days but excited to see what this becomes. The app has a good list of emotions, easy ways to find them and even a tool that helps you work out what the feelings in your body mean. Developer seems very involved. Looking forward to seeing this become something amazing.
