The Vault 4th Step Inventory App allows you to enter your inventory information in a logical step by step way, then saves the information in an inventory spreadsheet that is laid out much like many of the 4th Step guides that you can find on the internet (like Joe and Charlie’s). The difference is that the Vault app lets you work on your 4th step anywhere, anytime that you are free and in a safe place, NOT just when you are free at your home with your notebook. It is Vault Code protected at all times, so whether it is on your nightstand or at the coffee shop, NO ONE can access your inventory but you.

We decided (through much discussion) to minimize all instructions on HOW to do a 4th Step. As alcoholics, we had no shortage of opinions on what each of us believed were the best instructions. We decided to use the original text from the Big Book for the actual questions for you to answer, instead of rewording them as we saw some of the 4th Step "guides" do.

Your sponsor may want you to write out (with pen and paper) your 4th step. If that is the case, you may still utilize the app to collect your inventory information, then after printing it out, copy it over by hand.

This app is not AA reviewed or approved. AA does not endorse or approve anything or anyone. All quotes are from the 1st edition of the Big Book. This app was created by members for members. Remember: Our primary purpose is to stay sober, and help another alcoholic.

Keeps crashing and is super slow. Also will change names to weird words even though I'm spelling spelling correctly. Like very common names. I'm trying to unlock the next steps to resentments after listing the names and I've clicked the locks a million times. They are not unlocking and then it just crashes. Feel like I did so much work thus far for nothing cause now I have to do it again somewhere else

This is pretty cool and it definitely breaks out step four into easier bits and makes it pretty convenient to do on the go. That said some sponsors will tell you you should take a pen to paper and write it out. Personal preference I guess but the app is legit and definitely helps especially first time through step four.

The process is good. The layout is great! The functionality is good, but a bit quirky. To edit, at least on my phone, you have to delete text back to the editing point. Overall....a very beneficial app.
