  • 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.

    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.

  • Good For Simple Journaling Oct 31, 2020

    By SilenceRecited
    I am enjoying the free version of the app, (so this is coming from that point of view.) The daily prompts are repetitive but the paid version promises more “reflective questions” and “quotes”. (I wonder, how different could it be?) I do like the daily “choose your own/write your own ”mantra/saying/quote/etc.” There are quotes/reflections to use as journal prompts, if you just feel like typing. The daily mood/goal prompts kind of deter me away from using the app. It almost seems like a chore, mostly because not every answer for the “mood/goal” question warrants the next prompt which is usually, the exact same question about what we plan to do about such-and-such from the previous answers. Everything is predictable. Most of the time I just find myself lumping my thoughts into the closest category, or rushing by multiple prompts to get to the writing part and find I am uninspired. This has app has potential but I feel there are two different ideas clashing here. I love inspiration when I want to write something, but if I want to journal purely for self-reflection and self/improvement I’d like a little more depth, less out-of-context quotes from other people. Either way, there was a lot of work put into this, and a need for it too!

    Just wow! I can't believe how good this app was. I like the minimalist interface but jampacked with so many activities for you to be mindful and grounded. I love how it made me so productive and grounded even if I just started using it today. Thanks for making this app so awesome! Keep up the good work. 🥰

    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!!

    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.

  • Subscription based app masquerading as freemium. Jan 20, 2020

    By BenjPhoto
    I thought I’d give stoic a try. It sounded interesting. Unfortunately there is no free version (despite setup telling you that you can unlock all the features - implying an unlocked subset). You can get a seven day trial which automatically converts to withdrawing funds from your account. I have a brain injury that causes me not to function well, and I’ve learned not to allow these (through trial and mostly error) as I will forget about the app, forget when I downloaded it if I do remember, and/or forget to cancel if I’m not getting value. Therefore, I have no way to evaluate the app, even though it may be beneficial for me.... Additionally, the subscription model, while a great way to fund continued development, is extremely limiting for those of us with limited income due to disability.

  • New Updates have ruined the app for me Aug 27, 2019

    By ryaaaarriz
    I used to be able to come in and start the routine. Now I have to answer 4 questions which usually are very negative. Being asked “What will you struggle with today? stress, fear, lack of time?” is not a good way to start your day, and usually none of the multiple choice apply anyways. Also, the 4th question seems to just be getting targeted advertising information from me.. “do you have a pet?” “do you drink alcohol?”.. what does that have to do with my routine, why am I wasting my time on these questions that don’t help me be a better stoic? I am only frustrated because I really loved this app and it was a consistent part of my day, and now i never make it through the questions and they make me not want to use the app. I use the app now just for the initial quote shown.

  • 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!

    I've been looking for a way to structure my life around productivity that is convenient. You get quotes throughout the day go keep yourself inspired, a morning and night lesson to both recap your day and to prepare yourself for your day. Great app

    Ok so far, but I've just found a niggle. The meditation timer. The background sound is a short loop, there's a silence between the track ending and starting again. Really distracting. Also the interval bell can hardly be heard even on full volume if you have background sound on. Only been using the app for a day, so my view/rating may change

  • Excellent, with Some Minor Things Jan 10, 2021

    By grievedghost
    I’ve tried a lot of apps like Stoic. and it’s unquestionably the best, and the only one I’ve consistently stuck with. It’s simple but comprehensive and powerful. I love it, and use the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch versions daily to very positive effect. My only critique is that sometimes the morning and evening question prompts will include questions that are very similar (“how do you plan to spend the rest of today?”, “what do you plan to do today?” in the morning) and/or outright repeat questions (often “what made you smile today?” in the evening). I suspect that I could avoid this by selecting/customizing my questions, but I like the sometimes unique questions that pop up and worry that if I don’t let the app decide, my experience with that feature of the app will stagnate. However, it is sometimes disruptive to the flow to have the same or similar question come up again.

    i love this app. it has helped me a lot. it'd have been 5 stars if they let me re-read some of the entries i have answered from their prompts. as in right now the only thing i can re-read is the journal i wrote. but other than that, i'm so grateful i found this app. i'm considering to subscribe to the premium features because i genuinely want to support the dev team. props to them. thank you!

  • Lovely... but personal info red flag? Aug 15, 2019

    By a potential adopter
    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!

    It's beautifully designed and the ideas are good, but it rewards things that shouldn't always be rewarded, like productivity, for instance, because that's something we guilt ourselves for a lot. It's also extremely repetitive and there seems to be no variance, which makes it seem outdated and of limited use.

  • App gets worse with every update Dec 17, 2019

    By NuclearByte
    Why change the layout of the routine? Before I could just scroll through all of it. I could see the quote as I was writing about it. Now I have my whole 6 inch screen dedicated to one question? How does that make sense? And now the (already pointless) “what is your focus today?” question has like 30 options. Why is that necessary? Do you really think every person is going to be able to predict how their day will go? Maybe some can, but I certainly can’t. Adding on to this, when I installed the recent update, my routine from yesterday got deleted. Please just go back to the layout that’s in the App Store preview video. You can integrate the journal button in the bottom right, I like that. And also I’d remove the trends tab and mood questions, I don’t see the point.

  • ‘stoic.’ App Review Jan 10, 2021

    By Raimabird
    Stoic is genuinely a very good app. It’s got a variety of free offerings and meditations, along with quotes journaling and daily checkins, drastically improving my everyday mood. My one complaint is how it mixes up dates. I’ll write something in the morning, then come back a little later in the SAME DAY and write a goal. But it’ll show that the thing I wrote in the morning was written yesterday when it was, in fact, not. As a very particular person, this bugs me to a huge extent. However, other Than that, it’s a great app. The reason I don’t switch to Tangerine, another app similar to this without the day mix-up, is because stoic offers more. However, a switch wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.

  • another cash grab Aug 6, 2020

    By Lycan7rop3
    Nothing in life is free, this includes healthcare and mental health assistance and things that should help you. Sadly we live in an era where products even simple ones like this app you have to pay for...I understand people need make a living as well but to profit on some ones mental health situation is just wrong. at least when you go to the doctors or a therapy session, with insurance they pick up the majority of the bill.. If you want to really help someone and make a difference, a real difference don't try to hide behind an app with a dollar sign and pretend that you care.. this is another subscription service... there are tons of these things..
