I was given a variety of apps to choose between with lowdown. This has helped a lot, able to express my feelings publicly without feeling judged and knowing there's much more than just me who struggles with similar issues. Thank you.

An amazing app. I like to use it as a dairy of sorts. I enjoy the ability to add your input to other people problems or just the ability to relate to others. I've noticed my mental health improving sue to this app and I'm elated about it. One thing I noticed about the app is that it gives me two notifications for the same post. So when my reply goes live it notifies me twice and the same happens with likes. I'm not sure how to fix this problem and why it's even occurring

Hi, thanks so much for leaving us a review, we're really glad it's helping to improve your mental health. We're sorry about the issue of notifications, if this is still happening you can try removing the app completely and reinstalling but we log this on our side as well. Thank you, Team Tellmi

It's a great app to get anonymous input from others, or just vent your feelings without having to worry about over sharing. Although it's good for its purpose, it takes 15-20 mins to get your replies through the reviewing process (while I understand why it's necessary to have one). At times, the 'Post' button doesn't work, and the only way to get it working is to delete your reply and re-write it, so, as many people using the app are vulnerable and need help as soon as possible, this isn't fab.
