  • I love this app, it has helped me with my BPD Aug 20, 2020

    By Lvansickle
    To all the people on other reviews saying the bubble is too slow, you can unlock a flash card setting and simple diary card setting where you do not have to wait for the bubble. I think it unlocks those after using the app a few days. The only thing I didn’t like was that if you don’t pay for the premium version, you can only edit and look at the past weeks history (not anything past that.) I loved this app so much I went ahead and paid the $4 for the premium version. Now I can check my entire history and also watch all the videos on each skill. I really love that you can read about all the skills without having to open a diary card. This app has helped me to not have any bpd episodes in a whole month (I got it a month ago) which I have never been able to do!!!

    I was doubtful of this app at first because it looked complicated to use and I thought that it would be bland and unhelpful. I was very wrong and pleasantly surprised. Unlike other diary card apps I have used, this app allows you to track all of your emotions, urges, and dbt skills in a detailed and efficient way. You can even add your own target behaviors. There are also explanations for each skill with examples as well if you do not understand what a skill is. There are so many helpful features. Thank you so much for putting so much detail into this app.
  • Missing half of the Diary Card! Jun 24, 2019

    By vasquezhector39
    This app unfortunately only has the back side of the “official” DBT diary card, where you note which skills you used that day. It might be good to continue using after you’ve completed a term of DBT, to stay refreshed on your skills. However, most people currently working on DBT would need the front side of the card, where you make notes about the day, track intensity of emotions such as Anger and Anxiety, and keep track of your weekly Target Behavior. Not sure why the app only has the back side. Also, I found the bubble animation on each question to be a tad slow, especially if you were trying to enter a couple days at a time.
  • Please fix bug on classic diary card Feb 11, 2019

    By LdyBeth
    A great app so far but unable to progress through tracking daily emotions on classic diary card as “continue” is grayed out at the bottom. *EDIT: The error was mine. I was not choosing an answer for each emotion. Eg., if I did not experience the emotion of, say, envy for the day I was leaving that blank, rather than choosing 0 as my answer. All emotions must have a rating before being able to progress.

    I never leave reviews but I really have benefited by this one. I’ve hated all other dbt diary card apps. This one I’ve stuck with for several months and will continue to use it. It’s simple and clear-cut. I can knock out my daily diary card in about 2 minutes and move on with my day. I also really like the videos that the developer makes. They’re applicable. Good app, I recommend it!
  • Great DBT skills use tracker Aug 5, 2017

    By NinniePie
    I am using the free version and find it to be really helpful. A really useful alternative to carrying a card around. I love that it queries you about the use of the skills. Also that there is an explanation of each skill too. Like that you can turn off the background music.
  • Thank you :) Dec 11, 2018

    I’ve always had trouble filling out diary cards and sometimes, just couldn’t remember what each skill was exactly...with this app, I find the diary card a huge help, especially the very pertinent and gender equal examples. I actually want to practice these DBT skills because I can now fully sense how much they can improve my life. Thank you technology AND the creators of this app!

    I’m a DBT Therapist and using this for myself to possibly recommend to clients. So far enjoying the functions. May be too in-depth for some who are still working on mindfulness and it’s an awesome way to grow this skill by setting time aside to reflect.
  • Thankful for this app Sep 30, 2018

    I’m new to DBT and have found this app to be amazingly helpful. Learning them is life changing in living with bipolar disorder and after being in therapy for almost 30 years I now have additional support. Thanks so much!
  • The wait time after a response Apr 17, 2020

    By jmann001988

  • Very limited options, no way to tailor Apr 13, 2019

    By ihavetigiveanickname
    First, please create a way to mute that really annoying background music. An app intended for a lot of highly sensitive people should allow users to decrease sensory stimulation as needed. Next, it’s also really annoying to be forced through all those skills for someone new to DBT. Let users focus on the ones learned vs everything. Finally, there’s nothing about tracking emotions, urges, self harm, SI... pretty crucial components of a diary card.
  • Color contrast Feb 12, 2021

    By wait_its_kate
    I just did my first diary card, and half of the questions I answered blind because I was unable to read the either white text on white background, or the question wasn’t there at all, just the available answers. I did DBT for 3 years and could sure use a refresher. I’m hoping this is a temporary problem because I could see this app being something I could benefit from.
  • Surprisingly UNHELPFUL May 9, 2018

    By luckylady412
    had high hopes for this app. Big disappointment. No directions or instructions. You have to answer like 20+ questions with annoying and choppy music that abruptly changes after each answer. AND if you don’t go through all of them it won’t save your data and you have to start over again. Hoping they put a bit more time into it for the next update.
  • Distracting Feb 25, 2018

    The skill card and skill descriptions are very helpful and well-thought out. The bubble animation is weird and useless, but it could be neat if it were interactive. The layout of the app is very busy, which I find overwhelming. The music is obnoxious, but I was able to turn it off after some investigating. Ultimately, I decided not to upgrade and am seeking a new DBT app.

  • Great app Oct 12, 2017

    By JFulwood5
    Awesome app for tracking DBT skills and what makes it excellent is it describes or clarifies the skill you are answering to in case you forgot- DBT has so many skills and acronyms it can be overwhelming at first. This app is very good. Good design.
  • Love it Sep 24, 2019

    By Lisskat
    I love this app. It really keeps me on track with dbt. Although some of the skills aren’t on here but that’s ok. Yes the ads bug me but I use the free version so what can u expect?
