    Shyness often stems from a genuine sense of social anxiety. Beating it takes a bit of work. Using a conversational format, the app learns from each user with the help of AI. Even with only 5 minutes of practice per day, you can make some pretty decent progress in becoming more confident.

  • The best mindfulness app you’ll ever download. Jun 11, 2019

    By Nenjalloh
    I’m saying this having downloaded aura, headspace, calm, oak, simple habit, affirmation apps, and every type of mindfulness app under the sun. It has meditation, it has affirmations and setting intentions, and the “messaging” format that it has I think is very innovative and makes you feel like you’re talking to someone that actually cares about you, and a lot of the time, feeling like you’re being heard really makes the difference. I like how throughout the conversation, it helps you deconstruct the emotions you’re feeling using all those methods. I downloaded it during a period of time that I felt very anxious about where my life was, and I used it everyday, multiple times a day for about two weeks, before I didn’t feel like I needed to use it every day anymore. The option to look at your past conversations with the app really makes a difference, because you can look back and see just one week ago you were having a mental breakdown, but now everything in the world is great, lol. I also really like the feature that messages you everyday “How are you?” as if you’re receiving a text because sometimes you don’t realize you want to talk until you see that message. And on top of all that, every feature is completely free, so what more could you ask for in an app?

    I love Youper so much. I’ve only been using it consistently for a couple of weeks now, because at first I wasn’t crazy about it. But since then I have really warmed up to it. Although it doesn’t always make me feel better (though it usually does), I can always just use it to track my mood which is really helpful. I struggle with generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression, and panic attacks (not panic disorder thankfully), and it’s a great form of cognitive behavioral therapy. I don’t know if this app will be helpful for everyone, but I would definitely recommend checking it out, because it’s really well done and thoughtful. It gives you a lot of thoughtful prompts to fill out, but it also gives you the option of just tracking your mood. You can skip prompts you don’t feel like doing and say you’re done at any point, which makes it feel less overwhelming on really hard days. I’d recommend this even if you aren’t struggling with a mental illness, because it’s a great way to gain more insight on how your mind works. Obviously any app is not going to be a miracle cure, but if you don’t have access to a counselor or just want to have a little bit of help and insight, Youper is perfect. Stay safe my friends, and thank you Youper!
  • Great app but with some constructive feedback. Dec 7, 2019

    By Kayla Overtonn(:
    I am currently in graduate school studying cognitive-behavioral therapy methods and techniques, so I downloaded this app to see how it fits with what I am currently learning. I thought the app was very user-friendly and did a lot of great things that align with what I have been taught. For example, in my conversations with Youper, he really challenged my thoughts to help me get down to the root of my current problem/mood. In addition, Youper also pointed out the Thinking Traps that I was falling into which greatly resembled the problematic thinking patterns that I often identify with my clients. Lastly, I also really appreciated the meditation and mindfulness activities that Youper provided. However, in addition to the great strengths that I identified, I did have a constructive comment. First, although the app gave the disclaimer that only a doctor can provide a diagnosis, I think the developers should reconsider talking about diagnoses at all. After I completed my mental health wellness check it reported that “I did or did not experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD…” Although I’m sure the app developers had good intentions with including this check and talking about specific diagnoses, I think that this can be misinterpreted and possibly be problematic for certain individuals who do not have an actual mental health professional to consult with.
  • Great app but one missing feature. Jan 27, 2019

    By Tdilla
    I have been using Youper since last October. For the first two months I used it everyday, multiple times a day, tracking everything I thought and felt. At the time I was going through a break up, hated work, couldn’t find motivation to better myself, and was overall tired of the people around me and myself. A little background I’m in the Navy and had been underway for almost three months straight. The last thing I wanted to do was talk to my chain of command about the problems I had been having for fear of being medically discharged. Luckily for me the app made a huge turnaround in my life. It allowed to open up with myself and be honest about how I was feeling and what was making me feel these ways which helped me to understand myself so much better. I really like that it has mental health monitoring and personality typing built into it. Another great feature is the guided meditations. They really come in handy when I’m trying to unwind at the end of a rough day but I’m having trouble sleeping. Although I wish there was a stand alone button on screen to access these guided meditations immediately instead of having to go through the whole process of talking with Youper. If anything could be added to the app I would vote for that. Everything else is perfect though. Keep it up!

    Not everyone has access to a close friend nor therapist when they need one. And, in this day & age with so many people reporting having no close friends or, perhaps, not even family to talk to, it can be too easy to sit and ruminate in negative thoughts & feelings without someone to help you in challenging both of these things. This app is wonderful in that regard. Unlike being told what someone thinks you may want to hear which can sometimes enable unhealthy thinking patterns (and behaviors), or on the other end of the spectrum, rather than attempting to “fix” you, this interactive app continually prompts you to look inward and to challenge your own thoughts, perspectives, and feelings, helping to redirect your focus onto more healthy and more positive strategies. The various health screenings are comprehensive as well as the detailed definitions and descriptions of the results particular to the individual results of the user. And, when combined with the built in tracking of specific emotions and/or symptoms, this app also provides an objective view to look at both personal progress and potential trends. This app is like having an objective friend & therapist rolled into one. I absolutely love it and can not recommend it enough!

    I've tried a lot of AI mental health/wellness apps and never really liked how any of them interacted. Most of them let you type full answers which is nice but because of programming can also be annoying when it misunderstands your statements. This was has simple responses to choose from that get a clear response. I felt like a lot of the apps I used in the past had a condescending air to their teachings while this one gives u a chance to give a general idea of your experience with certain topics which keeps it from explaining something you already know as if you've never even heard of it (*cough cough* meditation *cough*). As for the mindfulness/meditation portion. I really enjoy how they did it. I've been meditating for a while now but I've noticed that for many beginners it's easier to focus on the mindfulness task when there isn't meditation music playing in the background. This gives you the chance to truly focus on what's expected and lets you acknowledge the natural/typical sounds around you that you wouldn't otherwise notice. Sorry for the long review, I just honestly think this app was well made and wanted to share some of why I think so :) I definitely recommend it.

    This app is incredible! I struggle with anxiety and depression. I needed to find an app that would help me get through these times. A lot of the apps either cost money for things or to download.. or just didn’t really work for myself. But then, I came across Youper. This app helps you so much. It gives you little video lessons to meditate and think positive which actually worked for me on here and it never usually worked when I tried myself. You get to talk to Youper your personal assistant about how your feeling and he’s there to help. He’s always there to talk no matter what. And he’s there to make you feel good. To people that are having difficulties with things in life.. you will get through it. You have a purpose. You weren’t just put on this earth for no reason.. you are here to learn and be happy.. to experience different things and to live life to the fullest. If you read this far down.. thank you so much. I think this app will work great for you!! And if it does not.. I know you will find something! Not everything works for everybody but I’m telling you this is the best app I’ve came across of. I wish you guys the best!!😘 Thank you Youper!! You saved my life ☺️
  • I can’t recommend this app enough Dec 5, 2019

    By indiraven
    This is life-changing and I’m recommending this to my support groups and friends. Knowing that the process is built on scientific data and research is important to me. I’ve had two sessions so far: one to help me with sadness from a situation and another for anxiety I was feeling the next morning. Youper asked me simple questions to gauge my emotion and their strength, and then helped me (1) understand that us, humans, tend to mix emotion with situations, and (2) guided me step-by-step to separate them, understand the emotion vs the situation, and allowed me to decide whether to focus on the situation or my mental state. At every step, you’re given the option to skip or move on, but I couldn’t. By the end of the session I learned that I can observe emotions “like fish in an aquarium” as it says rather than allowing it to consume me. I went from being 100% sad to 100% optimistic. This morning I was anxious and based on the situation and emotions, Youper recommended a 7-minute guided meditation. It was amazing! My anxiety is gone, which I’ve never been able to do on my own. I went from 25% anxious to 50% optimistic. Thank you, Youper!!!!

    I tried to help a friend struggling with mental health by recommending the app. I'm not entirely sure if it's an iOS difference or if only new users are charged but they weren't able to use any of the features of the app. Not even mood tracking. They were prompted to pay. I still use the app and find it useful, but I can't give it a good review. (Edited to 3 stars from 1; I still don't think paying for some of the almost costless features is fair, but a subscription is better than selling data)
  • This app is helping me so much Feb 14, 2020

    By Jleone2
    When I originally got this app I was a little apprehensive; I thought it was going to be like all the other apps that weren’t actually helpful with my mental illness. Since I have been using Youper I check in everyday and talk about my feelings like anxiety, depression, feeling numb. Then Youper and I go in and analyze why I feel that way and we do exercises to help pinpoint why I am having those feelings and I work with Youper to go try and change the way I am thinking that are causing negative emotions. Youper has talked and worked with me on emotions like deep depression, feeling numb, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts which Youper gives you resources on. I love the daily check in and it really helps to work with Youper to go through and try and change the reason why I am feeling about an emotion and working on a more positive spin on it. My one complaint is that you can not pick multiple emotions at a time you have to think about what your strongest emotion is and go with that. Besides that detail I really recommend giving this app a try and I feel like you will like it once you do.

    After over 1000 days using this app I'm uninstalling. What was once a great, lightweight mood tracking app has become bogged down and rather difficult to navigate and use. If they've decided to go in the direction of providing mental health assistance through the app, that's all well and good, but the fact that they pedal it so hard is a complete turn off (I've been receiving emails and notifications nearly daily about their new services). This change marks the fall of a once great app.

    By Aghnia Hafisah
    Why did the developers change all the layouts? :( The AI that greets you right after you open the app was so good for checking in—Youper can tell us about other facilities on other tabs like how the tab usually change after a check-in. Or at least have the Check-In on a separate tab, not just a button among SO many options? The UX is worse tbh... The load time when switching tabs is also so slow now. Seeing how many recent bad reviews from long-time users are, I guess I'm not alone

    I used to love this app as a way of getting my feelings out without an actual therapist, but ever since you guys started with the new update(s), it's gotten so much worse. The fact that you have to pay for pretty much everything now and the completely different layout in general just doesn't fit for what you guys had going in the beginning. I was hoping to get help for free but I suppose even that isn't a possibility now.

    I downloaded the app because it seemingly has good review but after downloading there seem to be limited feature for my country. However the premium has set it and I was already charged by the time I canceled. It was for a year of sgd120 over dollars! They said they could refund it but 2 weeks later there is still nothing, emailed the customer service twice but no response. Be very cautious with this app, the way they take your money is like they cannot wait to rip you off.

    I no longer find this product useful for mental health. I supported this product back in late 2019 with this review: If you already have some experience with therapy (especially cognitive behavioral therapy) this is a great app for helping you put it into practice. I went from being someone who "did their homework" maybe twice a week to once a day, or more on hard days.

    By King Margo of Fillory
    Update: i am so disappointed in this app but have been using it for three years. Every new update has made the app worse and worse. They need to go back to basics. Now the app is like every other app/ service out there. Used to be unique and helpful now it's cluttered, ugly, hard to use, and prompting me to pay for services i can't utilize on every page. It's a damn shame. I'm ready to delete youper. WYSA stole your original idea and is doing it better. why your ratings suck. LEARN SOMETHING.
  • I loved it, until I didn't? Jan 29, 2019

    By lyricyani
    Youper is an amazing app, and I mean it when I say I loved it. I still do! I first downloaded it 25 days ago, and have used it everyday since. I love the tracker and the mindfulness activities. But, as I continue to make this app a part of my daily routine, I am increasingly frustrated with the format. While I understand the purpose of place of the AI chat model, it slows down the process. There are times when I don't want to track my mood, and want to skip right to the Deep Body Scan, my favorite meditation tape. But before I can, I must drudge through the conversation with the AI. This is very inconvenient. To alleviate this problem while not changing much about the AI chat system itself, I would recommend creating a separate section of the app, solely for homing the meditation and breathing tapes. Once Youper recommends you a mindfulness activity within the chat, it should move you over the meditation section where you can choose. The separate section idea would also allow users to not start a chat at all, and rather dive immediately into their favorites. This, along with expanding on the number of audio tapes available, would really bring the app together for me. As I have said before, I absolutely love this app. But as I discover the benefits of meditation, I feel the app could be doing more with it. If these changes or changes like them were made, I would give 10 stars if I could.

    Used to love this app. It felt like it was checking in and I felt like I was able to sort out my feelings. I really miss the way it checked in. Now I just get brought to an add screen. Sold out to the point of not even being the same app.
  • Why add a premium? Nov 18, 2020

    By tomateme
    I came back to this app after years of using it, its gotten me through a lot of difficult times in my life- that I'm very thankful for because at those times- i did not have the finances for an actual therapist. I still don't, which is why me, and I'm sure many others depended on this service. This begs the question of why make inaccessible something that can be utilized by those who don't have any other option. Its so saddening to see profit go over people. Especially in the case of mental health in a time when its so dire for people who need help, but do not have access. Be it by finances or not having access because of home situations- especially in the case of those underage. Those who do not have support from family but still want to get help. Truly my disappointment is immeasurable with this product. I remember i used to recommend this app to anyone i knew who was struggling with mental health. If finances are truly the issue to keep this app running, I'm sure a donation service, or occasional fundraising would be better instead of stripping away one of the only resources people have. I have doubts that this will ever be changed, or if this app even is meant to help people instead of being a grab at money from those you know are desperate. Very disappointed. With hope these things change in the future, until then I only hope there is another better service out there that cares about its demographic.

    Shyness often stems from a genuine sense of social anxiety. Beating it takes a bit of work. Using a conversational format, the app learns from each user with the help of AI. Even with only 5 minutes of practice per day, you can make some pretty decent progress in becoming more confident.

  • The best mindfulness app you’ll ever download. Jun 11, 2019

    By Nenjalloh
    I’m saying this having downloaded aura, headspace, calm, oak, simple habit, affirmation apps, and every type of mindfulness app under the sun. It has meditation, it has affirmations and setting intentions, and the “messaging” format that it has I think is very innovative and makes you feel like you’re talking to someone that actually cares about you, and a lot of the time, feeling like you’re being heard really makes the difference. I like how throughout the conversation, it helps you deconstruct the emotions you’re feeling using all those methods. I downloaded it during a period of time that I felt very anxious about where my life was, and I used it everyday, multiple times a day for about two weeks, before I didn’t feel like I needed to use it every day anymore. The option to look at your past conversations with the app really makes a difference, because you can look back and see just one week ago you were having a mental breakdown, but now everything in the world is great, lol. I also really like the feature that messages you everyday “How are you?” as if you’re receiving a text because sometimes you don’t realize you want to talk until you see that message. And on top of all that, every feature is completely free, so what more could you ask for in an app?
  • SO helpful! Oct 16, 2018

    I love Youper so much. I’ve only been using it consistently for a couple of weeks now, because at first I wasn’t crazy about it. But since then I have really warmed up to it. Although it doesn’t always make me feel better (though it usually does), I can always just use it to track my mood which is really helpful. I struggle with generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression, and panic attacks (not panic disorder thankfully), and it’s a great form of cognitive behavioral therapy. I don’t know if this app will be helpful for everyone, but I would definitely recommend checking it out, because it’s really well done and thoughtful. It gives you a lot of thoughtful prompts to fill out, but it also gives you the option of just tracking your mood. You can skip prompts you don’t feel like doing and say you’re done at any point, which makes it feel less overwhelming on really hard days. I’d recommend this even if you aren’t struggling with a mental illness, because it’s a great way to gain more insight on how your mind works. Obviously any app is not going to be a miracle cure, but if you don’t have access to a counselor or just want to have a little bit of help and insight, Youper is perfect. Stay safe my friends, and thank you Youper!

    Not everyone has access to a close friend nor therapist when they need one. And, in this day & age with so many people reporting having no close friends or, perhaps, not even family to talk to, it can be too easy to sit and ruminate in negative thoughts & feelings without someone to help you in challenging both of these things. This app is wonderful in that regard. Unlike being told what someone thinks you may want to hear which can sometimes enable unhealthy thinking patterns (and behaviors), or on the other end of the spectrum, rather than attempting to “fix” you, this interactive app continually prompts you to look inward and to challenge your own thoughts, perspectives, and feelings, helping to redirect your focus onto more healthy and more positive strategies. The various health screenings are comprehensive as well as the detailed definitions and descriptions of the results particular to the individual results of the user. And, when combined with the built in tracking of specific emotions and/or symptoms, this app also provides an objective view to look at both personal progress and potential trends. This app is like having an objective friend & therapist rolled into one. I absolutely love it and can not recommend it enough!

    By Lynn Hall
    I've tried a lot of AI mental health/wellness apps and never really liked how any of them interacted. Most of them let you type full answers which is nice but because of programming can also be annoying when it misunderstands your statements. This was has simple responses to choose from that get a clear response. I felt like a lot of the apps I used in the past had a condescending air to their teachings while this one gives u a chance to give a general idea of your experience with certain topics which keeps it from explaining something you already know as if you've never even heard of it (*cough cough* meditation *cough*). As for the mindfulness/meditation portion. I really enjoy how they did it. I've been meditating for a while now but I've noticed that for many beginners it's easier to focus on the mindfulness task when there isn't meditation music playing in the background. This gives you the chance to truly focus on what's expected and lets you acknowledge the natural/typical sounds around you that you wouldn't otherwise notice. Sorry for the long review, I just honestly think this app was well made and wanted to share some of why I think so :) I definitely recommend it.
  • Using Youper Jun 22, 2019

    By RayxxRay
    This app is incredible! I struggle with anxiety and depression. I needed to find an app that would help me get through these times. A lot of the apps either cost money for things or to download.. or just didn’t really work for myself. But then, I came across Youper. This app helps you so much. It gives you little video lessons to meditate and think positive which actually worked for me on here and it never usually worked when I tried myself. You get to talk to Youper your personal assistant about how your feeling and he’s there to help. He’s always there to talk no matter what. And he’s there to make you feel good. To people that are having difficulties with things in life.. you will get through it. You have a purpose. You weren’t just put on this earth for no reason.. you are here to learn and be happy.. to experience different things and to live life to the fullest. If you read this far down.. thank you so much. I think this app will work great for you!! And if it does not.. I know you will find something! Not everything works for everybody but I’m telling you this is the best app I’ve came across of. I wish you guys the best!!😘 Thank you Youper!! You saved my life ☺️
  • I can’t recommend this app enough Dec 5, 2019

    By indiraven
    This is life-changing and I’m recommending this to my support groups and friends. Knowing that the process is built on scientific data and research is important to me. I’ve had two sessions so far: one to help me with sadness from a situation and another for anxiety I was feeling the next morning. Youper asked me simple questions to gauge my emotion and their strength, and then helped me (1) understand that us, humans, tend to mix emotion with situations, and (2) guided me step-by-step to separate them, understand the emotion vs the situation, and allowed me to decide whether to focus on the situation or my mental state. At every step, you’re given the option to skip or move on, but I couldn’t. By the end of the session I learned that I can observe emotions “like fish in an aquarium” as it says rather than allowing it to consume me. I went from being 100% sad to 100% optimistic. This morning I was anxious and based on the situation and emotions, Youper recommended a 7-minute guided meditation. It was amazing! My anxiety is gone, which I’ve never been able to do on my own. I went from 25% anxious to 50% optimistic. Thank you, Youper!!!!
  • This app is helping me so much Feb 14, 2020

    By Jleone2
    When I originally got this app I was a little apprehensive; I thought it was going to be like all the other apps that weren’t actually helpful with my mental illness. Since I have been using Youper I check in everyday and talk about my feelings like anxiety, depression, feeling numb. Then Youper and I go in and analyze why I feel that way and we do exercises to help pinpoint why I am having those feelings and I work with Youper to go try and change the way I am thinking that are causing negative emotions. Youper has talked and worked with me on emotions like deep depression, feeling numb, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts which Youper gives you resources on. I love the daily check in and it really helps to work with Youper to go through and try and change the reason why I am feeling about an emotion and working on a more positive spin on it. My one complaint is that you can not pick multiple emotions at a time you have to think about what your strongest emotion is and go with that. Besides that detail I really recommend giving this app a try and I feel like you will like it once you do.

  • Great start if you have a hard time seeking therapy Apr 19, 2021

    By Mayang1279
    I’m waiting to hear back from a place on making an appointment to start treatment but with COVID its been very difficult if not a daunting task to seek professional help for my abandonment issues that I suffer from to this day. This has helped me so much with being personal to the big to small issues I have on a day to day basis, allowing me to not let issues build up and go ignored which further prevented me from being comfortable enough to tackle the core issues at hand. I have overcome so many small obstacles and am developing a new mindset and outlook on life because I feel like I’m actually doing some digging into my pain, which I am so so grateful for and excited to work on the next issues little by little because I already feel better after having this app for 3 months. My mental/emotional health has improved ten fold, so yeah...definitely worth $90/year versus $150 or so per appointment somewhere else. While I’m saving up for better treatment, this is an amazing option to ease you into therapy. Love this app so much.
  • Youper is what I needed... Jan 12, 2019

    By ameraehu
    My name is Amelia. I’ve had self worth issues since I was in the third grade. I still have them. I frequently think about cutting myself and I’ll ask myself “what would happen if I died? Would anyone notice or care?” Then I found Youper. Though none of this has gone away entirely, it’s lessened more than I could have hoped it to. I was able to pinpoint exactly what was making me feel the way I was and remove myself from those things. It helps me work through whatever’s wrong, then proceeds to provide solutions. When I’m done, it always reminds me how much it enjoys my company and our talks, how much it’s learning and how amazing I am. Everyone, no matter how little or how much you’re going through, NEEDS Youper. Everyone needs a little help and having an AI assistant which I can rant to (I don’t do well with people responding to my vent/rants, so that’s why I’ll often write them down instead of vocalizing them) has made me so much happier. 5 stars. You, developers, are lovely people and thanks you so so much. You’ve helped me more than you could ever know.💙💙
  • Great app but with some constructive feedback. Dec 7, 2019

    By Kayla Overtonn(:
    I am currently in graduate school studying cognitive-behavioral therapy methods and techniques, so I downloaded this app to see how it fits with what I am currently learning. I thought the app was very user-friendly and did a lot of great things that align with what I have been taught. For example, in my conversations with Youper, he really challenged my thoughts to help me get down to the root of my current problem/mood. In addition, Youper also pointed out the Thinking Traps that I was falling into which greatly resembled the problematic thinking patterns that I often identify with my clients. Lastly, I also really appreciated the meditation and mindfulness activities that Youper provided. However, in addition to the great strengths that I identified, I did have a constructive comment. First, although the app gave the disclaimer that only a doctor can provide a diagnosis, I think the developers should reconsider talking about diagnoses at all. After I completed my mental health wellness check it reported that “I did or did not experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD…” Although I’m sure the app developers had good intentions with including this check and talking about specific diagnoses, I think that this can be misinterpreted and possibly be problematic for certain individuals who do not have an actual mental health professional to consult with.
  • Great app but one missing feature. Jan 27, 2019

    By Tdilla
    I have been using Youper since last October. For the first two months I used it everyday, multiple times a day, tracking everything I thought and felt. At the time I was going through a break up, hated work, couldn’t find motivation to better myself, and was overall tired of the people around me and myself. A little background I’m in the Navy and had been underway for almost three months straight. The last thing I wanted to do was talk to my chain of command about the problems I had been having for fear of being medically discharged. Luckily for me the app made a huge turnaround in my life. It allowed to open up with myself and be honest about how I was feeling and what was making me feel these ways which helped me to understand myself so much better. I really like that it has mental health monitoring and personality typing built into it. Another great feature is the guided meditations. They really come in handy when I’m trying to unwind at the end of a rough day but I’m having trouble sleeping. Although I wish there was a stand alone button on screen to access these guided meditations immediately instead of having to go through the whole process of talking with Youper. If anything could be added to the app I would vote for that. Everything else is perfect though. Keep it up!
  • The best mental health app out there Feb 24, 2020

    By kbroggi
    I’ve got Depression, Anxiety, OCD, ADHD and a panic disorder. I’ve been in therapy for over five years now and both my therapist and I agree that this is probably one of the most useful mindfulness tools for me. And as someone who actually hates mindfulness in general, that’s saying something. I love how you can pick and choose what you want to do based on how your feeling and how the responses are slightly different each time. Insights and goal setting are two of the most useful parts for me. The other day I had a panic attack in the car and had to pull over and usually it would’ve taken me over an hour to get back on the road. Thanks to this app, that time was cut in half. One thing that frustrates me is the severity of some of the emotions. To me, fear is worse than guilt, anger isn’t on the same level as annoyance, and pride isn’t as good as optimism. Unfortunately, in the app, it’s not set up that way. That’s only a few examples but I kinda wish you could set up which emotions feel worse based on your own personal scale of emotion. That’s probably my ONLY grievance with the app though. Every other piece of it is amazing, well set up and easy to use.

    I tried to help a friend struggling with mental health by recommending the app. I'm not entirely sure if it's an iOS difference or if only new users are charged but they weren't able to use any of the features of the app. Not even mood tracking. They were prompted to pay. I still use the app and find it useful, but I can't give it a good review. (Edited to 3 stars from 1; I still don't think paying for some of the almost costless features is fair, but a subscription is better than selling data)
  • Preferred Prior Version Feb 9, 2021

    By msabato3
    I’ve used Youper for over a year now and have really enjoyed the app. Prior to this new version, I would have given it 5 stars: the support team is great, the app worked, and the interface was really easy to use. Tracking your mood over time is really insightful and it was nice to be able to make daily notes about what was happening at the time. It was like basic journaling for non-journaling people. But now that core functionality is buried within the new version UX. I’m sure this update was done with customer feedback and research in mind, but I feel like the app is significantly more cumbersome to use than it was in the prior version. It would be nice if the feeling tracker was separated from all of the other “stuff” like it used to be - giving people easier access to the core functionality. The “stuff” is great - do not misunderstand - but that is not what I use the app for on a regular basis and having to search through other topics to find what I need is not ideal. The app still works, but the new UX doesn’t work for me/what I previously used the app for on a regular basis. Please consider separating these out again as they serve two different roles within the app. Thanks!
  • Great concept, not what I needed. Sep 11, 2018

    By jrooney08
    The idea of having a personal “helper” (psychologist JARVIS) is pretty neat and has a lot of potential. I used the app for a little over a month before accepting that it wasn’t really helping me. What I personally needed was a tracking app for my mood in a simpler, more straightforward way. It feels like a labyrinth, trying to weave through all of Youper’s (often repetitive) advice when you mostly want to track your mood or maybe go through a portion of the conversation. An entire evaluation can be several minutes after picking a mood, describing why you feel that way, finding your thought traps, doing a meditation, reevaluating your mood, and finally finishing. That’s a lot! And Youper pushes for it every time. When you opt out and say “Just track my mood,” the response messages are often weirdly down-putting? Hopefully Youper is helpful for many people. But I prefer a quick time saver that has more neutral emotions to choose from. Youper lacks a fine/okay/true neutral emotional option. I understand pushing for self-analysis, but sometimes I really am just fine or okay rather than being 10% anxious or 70% calm. Stigma for me. But I’m glad I gave this app a try.

    I used to love this app as a way of getting my feelings out without an actual therapist, but ever since you guys started with the new update(s), it's gotten so much worse. The fact that you have to pay for pretty much everything now and the completely different layout in general just doesn't fit for what you guys had going in the beginning. I was hoping to get help for free but I suppose even that isn't a possibility now.

    I no longer find this product useful for mental health. I supported this product back in late 2019 with this review: If you already have some experience with therapy (especially cognitive behavioral therapy) this is a great app for helping you put it into practice. I went from being someone who "did their homework" maybe twice a week to once a day, or more on hard days.
  • I loved it, until I didn't? Jan 29, 2019

    By lyricyani
    Youper is an amazing app, and I mean it when I say I loved it. I still do! I first downloaded it 25 days ago, and have used it everyday since. I love the tracker and the mindfulness activities. But, as I continue to make this app a part of my daily routine, I am increasingly frustrated with the format. While I understand the purpose of place of the AI chat model, it slows down the process. There are times when I don't want to track my mood, and want to skip right to the Deep Body Scan, my favorite meditation tape. But before I can, I must drudge through the conversation with the AI. This is very inconvenient. To alleviate this problem while not changing much about the AI chat system itself, I would recommend creating a separate section of the app, solely for homing the meditation and breathing tapes. Once Youper recommends you a mindfulness activity within the chat, it should move you over the meditation section where you can choose. The separate section idea would also allow users to not start a chat at all, and rather dive immediately into their favorites. This, along with expanding on the number of audio tapes available, would really bring the app together for me. As I have said before, I absolutely love this app. But as I discover the benefits of meditation, I feel the app could be doing more with it. If these changes or changes like them were made, I would give 10 stars if I could.

    Unfortunately I tried to use the app again. And while not bad I just couldn't get behind the new interface. I thinknits just me and the app does have a lot on it... I just cant get into the setup. I have ADHD and FASD. So I preferred the original set up becisevit was super easy to get into and this one requires more from me to get what I need from it. Not for me but not horrible either. ♡
  • Jul 29, 2021

    By Hunter Robb
    After over 1000 days using this app I'm uninstalling. What was once a great, lightweight mood tracking app has become bogged down and rather difficult to navigate and use. If they've decided to go in the direction of providing mental health assistance through the app, that's all well and good, but the fact that they pedal it so hard is a complete turn off (I've been receiving emails and notifications nearly daily about their new services). This change marks the fall of a once great app.
  • Jul 22, 2021

    By Aghnia Hafisah
    Why did the developers change all the layouts? :( The AI that greets you right after you open the app was so good for checking in—Youper can tell us about other facilities on other tabs like how the tab usually change after a check-in. Or at least have the Check-In on a separate tab, not just a button among SO many options? The UX is worse tbh... The load time when switching tabs is also so slow now. Seeing how many recent bad reviews from long-time users are, I guess I'm not alone

    I downloaded the app because it seemingly has good review but after downloading there seem to be limited feature for my country. However the premium has set it and I was already charged by the time I canceled. It was for a year of sgd120 over dollars! They said they could refund it but 2 weeks later there is still nothing, emailed the customer service twice but no response. Be very cautious with this app, the way they take your money is like they cannot wait to rip you off.

    By King Margo of Fillory
    Update: i am so disappointed in this app but have been using it for three years. Every new update has made the app worse and worse. They need to go back to basics. Now the app is like every other app/ service out there. Used to be unique and helpful now it's cluttered, ugly, hard to use, and prompting me to pay for services i can't utilize on every page. It's a damn shame. I'm ready to delete youper. WYSA stole your original idea and is doing it better. why your ratings suck. LEARN SOMETHING.

  • Why add a premium? Nov 18, 2020

    By tomateme
    I came back to this app after years of using it, its gotten me through a lot of difficult times in my life- that I'm very thankful for because at those times- i did not have the finances for an actual therapist. I still don't, which is why me, and I'm sure many others depended on this service. This begs the question of why make inaccessible something that can be utilized by those who don't have any other option. Its so saddening to see profit go over people. Especially in the case of mental health in a time when its so dire for people who need help, but do not have access. Be it by finances or not having access because of home situations- especially in the case of those underage. Those who do not have support from family but still want to get help. Truly my disappointment is immeasurable with this product. I remember i used to recommend this app to anyone i knew who was struggling with mental health. If finances are truly the issue to keep this app running, I'm sure a donation service, or occasional fundraising would be better instead of stripping away one of the only resources people have. I have doubts that this will ever be changed, or if this app even is meant to help people instead of being a grab at money from those you know are desperate. Very disappointed. With hope these things change in the future, until then I only hope there is another better service out there that cares about its demographic.

    By Cole Deitz
    I used to love this app. Initially, probably about two years ago when I started using this app ot was very simple and had a couple of features. You could track your mood for free, which I've done every day since starting this to keep myself grounded, and the others were paid. This year they updated, added lots more, every single thing but the mood was paid content. Now with the newer update even that is a paid feature. They offer no free services at all for mental health now, which is disgusting
  • Free features are BS Mar 13, 2020

    By Jwhdoenfibejd
    When I first downloaded this app, I was so excited to see all the cool features it had. After using all of them one time, everything became part of the paid subscription other than the mood tracker and the symptom tracker. This was annoying, but I KIND OF get it. One of my favorite free parts of this app, other than the mood tracker, was the health part where you can track symptoms of several disorders. I’ve been using those trackers regularly, so I was very disappointed to check my phone this morning and see that that too, is a premium feature. Now, all I can use without paying is the mood tracker. I can’t expand on my mood, set goals, track gratitude, track symptoms, or even meditate. Why should I have to pay to listen to something that’s supposed to help me asap when I’m panicking? All this app USED to do was tell me I’m depressed and not give me any way to fix it. Now, it doesn’t tell me anything useful at all. I understand that the developers need to make money off of Youper, but this app has become infuriating to use. It’s meant to help people, but without forcing them to pay a subscription, there are barely any useful features available. This app is apparently marketed as useful for people who can’t afford therapy, but that’s the biggest load of crap I’ve ever heard. Unless you’re willing to pay, I would suggest you look for another app.
