Simple but effective
I love love this app. I share it with my friends and family. I love the ease – 4 choices to start, definitions of each emotion, and minimal typing the whole way. Unless you want to type a description of your moment, all aspects that are tracked are pre labeled buttons like “home” “mom” and “resting.” Those buttons are customizable and you can delete ones that dont apply to you. Navigating the emotion page is so user friendly, hope it doesnt change. I also appreciate how you dont need to log certain things like what you were doing, or how much exercise you had. The exercise log is very discreet for those of us who are sensitive to even small pressures to work out.
My only suggestion is to be able to go back and edit the time of day an entry is. Sometimes when I am working, I want to log my emotions. I cant because Im not allowed to have my phone on me, but I want to be able to log it after work and then edit the time so it reflects when that emotion happened. I think that same idea could be helpful in a variety of situations, like not wanting to make an entry around certain people, not realizing how you were feeling until later, etc
Thanks for using How We Feel! This is a great suggestion. We’ll make this change in a future version.
Needs a notes EXPORT feature.
No journaling app is complete without an export feature that sends our text entry data to a standard format like PDF, TXT or RTF. ** ** Because all our notes, epiphanies, realizations, etc, are stored on the DEVICE and not on their servers if something happens to the device or to the app, we’re out of luck and all our notes may DISAPPEAR. What’s a worse way to make a person feel lost, confused, and miserable than to realize an entire year’s worth of journal entries is GONE FOREVER because they dropped their phone or the app crashed unexpectedly? ** In fact, just now I was leaving a review through the app and the app FROZE on me. Thankfully no other data was lost this time but I think I’m making my point. ** I’m not saying the developers should find a way to store all the photos and audio recordings, that would be too cumbersome, just a way to store the date and time and all the notes we write for each entry and export that to a standard format like PDF, TEXT, and/or RTF. ** We should have multiple means of export like: Phone drive, email, Dropbox, etc. ** It would also be nice to include a feature that allows the ability to sync the data among multiple devices on a single Apple ID. I would be willing to pay extra for those export & sync features. ** Then the app would be perfect.
