  • This is an amazing app Nov 24, 2020

    By Chryssee
    I typically do not like journaling on my phone however, I stumbled upon this app and gave it a try and I absolutely love it. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to buy a membership but I did because I wanted to have full access to the entire app to be able to really see if it was worth it. So far, I have used the app in the morning and evening. I wanted to be able to track my mood to get a good sense of what really bothers me and be able to journal. I find that it really helps me find peace and be able to find happy moments in my day when it is hard to find sometimes. I love being able to find ways to be grateful and this really helps me find those moments in the day when you’ve been so stressed and all you can think of is the negative parts and then turning it around to find those moments that stand out that are positive. Even during times of stress I have been able to see the positive. I’ve been able to take a step back and really look at each situation as a learning experience and sometimes it is hard to do when you are battling depression, anxiety and PTSD. Definitely recommend this app!!

    Stoic Is a wonderful app to have. It's nice to wake up and have a quote as a notification or a reminder to be mindful and get prepared for the day. That is to the app, you have a few tools at your disposal: meditations, breathwork, journaling, and an array of quotes to read, heart/like, download. The only reason why 4/5 is when I do read quotes, it never gets shuffled so I have to begin right back at the same starting point and swipe through countless read quotes. So I never use that anymore
  • Maybe I don't know how to use this app? Apr 20, 2021

    By Jay2DaNaay
    I'm not really sure how I feel about this app. While it does ask you questions/give you prompts to get you talking about things, sometimes the questions are weird. I had one this morning, somewhere along the lines of "what are you then, a mere body? a ration being." And I'm staring at my screen like how do I even answer this if I don't understand the question? There's other ones that are similar and because I don't understand what it's asking me to write, sometimes I'll just put "lol" so I can move to the next page. Then when you're done with your questions it will ask if you feel better and mostly my answer has been no because the questions it gave me were weird. You can pick what questions you'd like to be asked everyday but none of them really jump out to me as something I'd want to answer daily besides the one sentence summary of your day but even that is whatever. I do like that it tracks your mood, would be cool to have another tracker for what is causing your mood instead of the sad to happy face scale. The quotes are cool too. I've been using the app for about 2 weeks now and I feel like maybe twice out of the 14 days, it's actually asked me something relevant. More often than not, I'm using the blank page entries instead but I could just write those in my actual journal. Perhaps this app isn't for me, but it seems to work for people.
  • Refreshing Concept. Aug 4, 2021

    By EmilySC93
    I was introduced to this platform, in the hopes of improving self-refelection. I think the intital reaction was excitement, because I had not considered such a concept. However, I will say, over time, I've come to realization that the effort is heavily dependent on personal determination and organization. I dont utilize it perfectly to a T, but it does provide clarity at moments when i can sit with myself. There is not an extensive array of prompts and exercises for the standard version, so I cannot speak upon what a premium, or paid version would further provide. That is an idividual decision for one to make. Overall, I do enjoy the platform and have recommended it to others. I only wish to utilize it more effectively. And while I understand the platform's resoning for not storing personal data or connecting something to a certain idvidual, I have found a slight displeasure in realizing the computer version I have and the mobile phone app version I have are NOT synchronized or connected in any way. That may be a personal misunderstanding, but ideally, I would like both version I have to be connected in some way. Would still encourage others to explore the app themselves, worth it.

    Okay this app is great. It was mentioned on a Tiktoc and I was in between creative commitments so I downloaded it. Great for intuitive persons who just need to get it out. I could go on and on. It's just good.
  • A non judgmental guide to a better self May 15, 2020

    By CheeseNinjaIPA98
    This app just keeps getting better and better. While using stoicism as a framework, this app has really been a way for me to practice personal reflection and awareness, cultivating better emotional wellness. Easily accessible techniques for gratitude, journaling, meditation, and breathing exercises without the pressure of any one thing being a requirement. The app guides you to those tools through a pleasant sequence without any pressure to use specific techniques. It’s so gentle. If you want to journal, then journal. If you want to meditate, then do that. And if you don’t, that’s ok too. It’s totally up to you. I find tremendous value in the simple act of making these sequences a part of my daily morning and evening routine; from simply opening the app and assessing how I feel to what my priority for the day is to how productive I felt. The app now even guides personal reflection towards specific categories. If in the morning I say I’m going to focus on reading, in the evening the app will then guide me to reflect on recalling what I read that day. So simple, but so helpful. Excellent user experience, an essential part of my every day routine now.

    I enjoy the ease of this app but for the past few days the push notifications have been of a religious nature, while Stoicism is a secular (often humanist) philosophy. I find that a bit strange and unnatural, as it never did that before in the few months I've had this app! In addition, the prompts are often the same every day and do not allow for challenge after a while. I do like the quotes though!

    I downloaded this app last week and it’s been on my home page since then. I’ve only started using this app a few days ago and OMG😳 This app is so beautiful. I’m only writing a review just so I can ask if you guys can put a password for the journal part because my mom looks through my phone and I don’t want her to read the things I write in there💀 Anyways, I do actually really love this app and its perfect from the bottom of those codes and to the top of the icon. It’s iconic honestly. Not to forget the fact that it’s been lifting burdens and weights off of my back when I type everything in details. It’s like a friend that I’ve always wanted, which is sad because none of my real (alive) friends are there for me and asks me how I am like how stoic is🥲 Ever since the app asked me the first question, I’ve poured allllll of the things I wanted to say and in details too. I- this app is like that one friend that you have that’s always there for you no matter what and genuinely cares for you so deeply and that you’re comfortable being around them even though you’ve only met last week. yknow? this app is my twin flame.

  • Life Changer for People with Mental Health Issues! Sep 29, 2021

    By kajlan98
    I have various mental health issues and nearly 2 decades of trauma that I’ve been desperately trying to cope with. I’ve been to so many mental health programs, rehabs, I've bought so many self development books and work books, tried other apps, taken all kinds of meds and have tried different types of therapies. Granted some of those things helped me tremendously(particularly long term outpatient therapy with a great therapist), it’s been consistently difficult for me to build healthy and healing habits into my everyday life. After only a few days of using this app, it has reduced my crippling anxiety and depression significantly. It has also helped me cope with my other mental health issues such as BPD, addiction, PTSD, Bipolar, and things such as chronic self image issues. My issues are still there obviously, but I don’t feel so helpless. I have such a long ways to go, but this app makes it so convenient to stick to those healthy and healing habits I wish to incorporate into my everyday life so I can make progress in creating a happy and fulfilled life for myself long term.

    New update has the app not working how it used to. Quite a shame, everything looks & seems the same but feels slightly different. Could be because I'm not paying for an annual subscription to it. App also has a lot of bugs where when you try to fill out the questions for the day or when you want to journal. Not loving this new update.

    By kash panchal
    The app has great potential and I know the devs are working on it but one bug I keep experiencing is with "quotes". They are often 1) repeated or 2) from the same person all the time (there should be some randomness to it) and 3)at times from things I don't want to read quotes from. Like I would deselect it in the preferences but I still quotes from "them"

    I hate how this app does not let me view the quesions for "morning quesions" but I am able to view my journals? Shouldn't we view everything from our history? I don't like that because I can't look back at it.

  • Try This App Jan 21, 2020

    By AustinCorn
    As a philosophy student and a productivity nerd, I’ve probably tried somewhere over 20 different journaling apps over the years and nothing has ever felt complete enough to make it worth the time. Within my first sit down with this app however, I actually found myself crying in some moments and smiling at others, ultimately feeling like I had done something truly productive. This app is incredibly in-depth and really delivers a guided experience that is tailored for your personal goals. It is structured enough to feel like you know what to do in order to benefit from it, and it is open-ended enough to feel like you don’t need any other app to accompany it, which makes it feel very complete and satisfying to have everything in one place. The customizable options, philosophical quotes and questions, and the array of mental exercises to choose from make this app an excellent tool to heal and grow. I have no doubt that this will continue to be a valued part of my daily routine, and I urge anyone reading this to try this for yourself!
  • Making a difference Apr 16, 2020

    By nickname?geez
    I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety all my life. I don’t feel comfortable w personal counseling, which I have tried. I’ve read multiple self help books ranging from CBT to The Power of now, all incrementally helped and gave me short term motivation but I lacked discipline. I also have and continue to use Youper for on demand emotional assist. Mornings are the worst for me. At times I am woken by anxiety. When it’s bad I force myself to cry before leaving the house because I don’t know what’s wrong but I know crying helps. This app has made the most difference so far- I’ve only used it for 2 weeks. It’s the first thing I do when I wake up. I don’t check mail or social, I brew my coffee and start w Stoic. The daily quotes are great weather I chose to reflect on them or not. Having to write/pause/set goals puts me in a whole different head space before my day actually starts. Today I woke up not anxious and looking forward to Stoic asking me -do you feel prepared for the day? So far the Answer has been Yes
  • I was skeptical at first. Feb 23, 2020

    By InkedGalaxies
    I’m trying to be a bit more aware the tone I’m thinking in. documenting my thought process throughout a time period helps me be more self aware. I tried physically writing but I can’t stand my handwriting and how inconsistent it is and then I’d accidentally switch notebooks and dates would be out of order- bleh. I tried social media but, this is rather private. yk? then I decided one day to just download this. I looked through the reviews, figured whatever let’s try it. the first two days, I wasn’t crazy about the app although once I became adjusted to the app’s algorithm and was it’s formatted: I enjoy it. I do, I would love a bit more personalization but that’s just me. it’s just a bonus I’d like. (although I love the app’s dark / soft theme. not all the options within the app (moods, activities, quotes) are particularly my style but the range this app gives you? with the different preset moods and activities and so on - awesome work guys. definitely download. plus it’s free!
  • Fantastic Jul 4, 2019

    By Adiposter
    I’ve always strived to set my goals and intentions for the day and reflect on them in the evening but have always struggled to keep up with it. There is something about Stoic that makes me feel a sense of peace and motivation when I open it. Every aspect of it is incredible, from the daily quotes from Stoic philosophers and the Buddha (my philosophies of choice) to answering the questions I set each morning & night, doing a visualization or meditation within the exercises, and even to the minimalistic UI and animations. Everything fits and everything makes me want to use the app more and more, which in this case is actually a good thing. Stoic is as far from pseudo-psychology as you can get. It’s pretty simple: If you setup your daily questions and just do what the app was built for. Twice a day. If you use it and apply it it will change your life. No question. The app is perfect, so it’s up to you if you want to follow it. If you do, good luck! I’ll be right there with you.
  • Organized, straightforward reflection Dec 23, 2019

    By beast
    I have journaled for many years, and many times due to not having proper questions set up, I go around in circles or there is no continuity to gleam insight from in my notes. With this app asking you the same questions with variability mixed in, it provides structure with challenges to make sure you dont repeat your entries. I have been able to gleam insight about my goals and whether or not i pursue them out of fear of rejection or ego, that i havent spent enough time with my family, that i have had much anger i hadnt dealt with, etc. This app also has great practices such as fear setting to guide you along complicated thought processes you have. Imagine having a great and caring interviewer ask you about yourself in depth every morning and evening. That is what this app is. It boosts your faith in yourself, allows you to see your own fallacies in your thoughts, and probably gives you the power of flight though i havent reached that badge yet

    Stoic Is a wonderful app to have. It's nice to wake up and have a quote as a notification or a reminder to be mindful and get prepared for the day. That is to the app, you have a few tools at your disposal: meditations, breathwork, journaling, and an array of quotes to read, heart/like, download. The only reason why 4/5 is when I do read quotes, it never gets shuffled so I have to begin right back at the same starting point and swipe through countless read quotes. So I never use that anymore

    I was introduced to this platform, in the hopes of improving self-refelection. I think the intital reaction was excitement, because I had not considered such a concept. However, I will say, over time, I've come to realization that the effort is heavily dependent on personal determination and organization. I dont utilize it perfectly to a T, but it does provide clarity at moments when i can sit with myself.

That is an idividual decision for one to make. Overall, I do enjoy the platform and have recommended it to others. I only wish to utilize it more effectively. And while I understand the platform's resoning for not storing personal data or connecting something to a certain idvidual, I have found a slight displeasure in realizing the computer version I have and the mobile phone app version I have are NOT synchronized or connected in any way.

    It's a really great app with great UI. It has some problems like, automatic theme doesn't change, notification bar isn't visible in dark theme, and at first I thought there were only 4 exercises due to following problem. There are some problems with direction of swipes in main screen and exercises. There isn't any backup option (I'm not sure if there is in premium). Day personalisation isn't flexiblee and notifications can be improved. It would be good if we could review journey a little better.

    I love this app, I really do. The journal prompts are great. They really have you think and answer questions that you may not have thought about to get to the bottom of your feelings. I love the simplicity of the app, as someone with ADD the black and white seems to really help me not be all over the place and it’s not distracting I love the walk prompts and audio clips. The layout and order in which the activities are presented are very productive and well thought out. The ONLY thing that drives me a little crazy about this app is the widget. I have the affirmation widget on my home page and most times a preview of a great affirmation will come up on the widget being that it has somewhat of an automation that shows your random affirmations from your Home Screen. Well, I would like to add it as my affirmation for the day by clicking the plus botton and or clicking the widget to open the app and save the affirmation and/or read further into it but when I do it just disappears on me. I can’t find it, have no clue where to find it because I struggle to find them in the affirmations section and it’s just a good affirmation gone to waste. Please fix this: If an affirmation is suggested on the Home Screen. When you click it, because you evidently have interest in it, you should be able to see it, read it, save it upon the app opening. Other than that, this is a beautiful app. I would HIGHLY suggest this app to those that suffer from ADD like myself.

    This is a great app, but it needs some work around the edges. This app is a jack of all trades that helps with perspective and other things, yet it's in need of refinement to be complete.
  • Maybe I don't know how to use this app? Apr 20, 2021

    I'm not really sure how I feel about this app. While it does ask you questions/give you prompts to get you talking about things, sometimes the questions are weird. I had one this morning, somewhere along the lines of "what are you then, a mere body? a ration being." And I'm staring at my screen like how do I even answer this if I don't understand the question? There's other ones that are similar and because I don't understand what it's asking me to write, sometimes I'll just put "lol" so I can move to the next page. Then when you're done with your questions it will ask if you feel better and mostly my answer has been no because the questions it gave me were weird. You can pick what questions you'd like to be asked everyday but none of them really jump out to me as something I'd want to answer daily besides the one sentence summary of your day but even that is whatever. I do like that it tracks your mood, would be cool to have another tracker for what is causing your mood instead of the sad to happy face scale. The quotes are cool too. I've been using the app for about 2 weeks now and I feel like maybe twice out of the 14 days, it's actually asked me something relevant. More often than not, I'm using the blank page entries instead but I could just write those in my actual journal. Perhaps this app isn't for me, but it seems to work for people.

    I enjoy the ease of this app but for the past few days the push notifications have been of a religious nature, while Stoicism is a secular (often humanist) philosophy. I find that a bit strange and unnatural, as it never did that before in the few months I've had this app! In addition, the prompts are often the same every day and do not allow for challenge after a while. I do like the quotes though!

    Hi there! I'm giving 3 stars for now because auto save sometimes works or doesn't. As well as editing. Ive lost good work and I am really bummed out, if you guys could fix that that would be so amazing!! Thank you! This app is so wonderful I just hate to see it wig out. The cursor is also a little laggy as well in pickin up on corrective spots. Thank you for creating this app! ❤

    This would be a great app but for two main issues (for me): 1) the app is available on multiple platforms, but no apparent means to sync them. And 2) edits don't save in the journal, the button on the bottom right of the journal edit page appears to do nothing, if you select text only a shadow of end marks are visible--makes editing very difficult--and pointless if you cannot save edits. 😞
  • Lovely... but personal info red flag? Aug 15, 2019

    The concept for this app is really wonderful, and it has good writing prompts, thought-provoking quotes, and asks it’s users questions that facilitate insight. And, it also asks yes/no questions that - it seems the only possible thing that Stoic could do with user answers would be to collect and sell data sets about their users. These questions have included things mostly related to lifestyle, like “Do you drink alcohol?” or “Do you exercise?”, specific questions are not related to the app’s functionality, and are very market-driven questions. I’m well aware that most apps collet user data and sell it - that is our current context of targeted advertising and capitalism - but for an app about mental health, this phenomenon might be addressed with a little more transparency? As in, I’m ok with you collecting my info and selling it, but I feel a little conned when it under the auspices of therapeutic support :). I’ve decided to stop using it for that reason, but with more transparency would consider it again... But, kudos on the rest of the app!

    I love this app, only giving three stars because: It notifies about morning 2am of my time; Today it asked 'how are you feeling, and how old you were then" that made no sense to me at all. It has too little options in preferences. What I love about it: it asks me to do stuff that I usually forget by itself like, gratitude, journalling. These prompts could be more customizable too. I love the simplicity, and having a range of pastel colour background would be very nice. Joining the beta progr

    The app has great potential and I know the devs are working on it but one bug I keep experiencing is with "quotes". They are often 1) repeated or 2) from the same person all the time (there should be some randomness to it) and 3)at times from things I don't want to read quotes from. Like I would deselect it in the preferences but I still quotes from "them"

    I haven't been able to use this app in months. It keeps crashing on the 'journey' page. But I can't delete it because there's no way to get my data out for free.

    New update has the app not working how it used to. Quite a shame, everything looks & seems the same but feels slightly different. Could be because I'm not paying for an annual subscription to it. App also has a lot of bugs where when you try to fill out the questions for the day or when you want to journal. Not loving this new update.

    I hate how this app does not let me view the quesions for "morning quesions" but I am able to view my journals? Shouldn't we view everything from our history? I don't like that because I can't look back at it.
