I like the way this app is easy to use, making it user friendly for most ages. love the inter act side of the app almost like a mid AI influence. only dislike is the price. I never see myself being able to afford 4.99 a year mostly recently but that I just dont. sorry sucks cause I really like it. going to see what I can use it for with what's free in it .

5/22/21 I am extremely disappointed with the new update. I already paid once for the app and was able to add one photo a day. Now I have to pay EXTRA (for "premium") to be able to add a photo each day? I can understand charging for the new extra features, but they should have left ALL of the original features intact for those who paid for it! Original review 6/12/20: Love it. Helps me focus on the positive in short, easy bursts. I love being able to choose a picture a day.

They should have just made a new, separate app called "5-minute Journal 2" or something. I paid money for the original app because it was exactly what I wanted. They've completely reworked the interface & addred a paid subscription. I can still do the basic things I did before but I do not like the new visuals, they look more cluttered and the pop of yellow is annoying when the original app had a nice neutral palette. I feel like my purchase was not respected & the thing I bought has been taken.

We've worked very hard to implement many new features that have been requested by users. With all updates, in order to maintain a sustainable future for the app, we did make adjustments to pricing. As an existing user, to thank you for your support, you get a free 1 subscription to the premium. After may choose to continue with premium or basic.
