  • 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!!!

  • Missing half of the Diary Card! Jun 24, 2019

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

  • 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.

    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.

    Not a great app, per se. Good for the obsessive DBTer, every skill must be reviewed at the time you log or you lose what you have done, so no quick check about one or 2 skills. Logging is tedious, an action that should take a half second (checking a box) takes about 4 times that. Can't do same skill multiple times. Log screen optimized for people with perfect eyesight and not color blind. Doesn't allow multiple notifications. So, why is this important? Typical DBTers need to use skills throughout the day, but one major issue for BPD is loss of focus. This app doesn't help that. Another issue is obsessiveness, here you can't tell that you did the same skill 5 times, which is a clue, right? We forget to check in, so we need multiple reminders. Etc. I'll keep checking but for now, it's not what I need.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    By gefgedgtdgidghu
    So far so good with this app. However it would be help full to have a list of the 28 strategies and how to use them that can be pulled up with out have to start a new card.

  • Great idea, useful Nov 30, 2014

    By DBT amateur
    This app has actually been really useful to me in making important changes to my daily life and giving me a refresher on DBT skills. Some aspects of it make it somewhat annoying and cumbersome to use, though, like the time it takes to check yes or no, the fact that if you get interrupted you can lose all your progress/answers, and the music drives me up the wall.
