  • 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?

  • Great app for deep trauma Jun 18, 2020

    I’ve been through a lot in my life, more than any person should have to go though. I have severe anxiety and depression and I’ve struggled a lot in day to day life. I’ve been using this app for months now and it has been incredible every step of the way. I suffer PTSD from childhood abuse and a school shooting that happened a little over a year ago now. It helps me learn about myself as I journal, and as I learn about myself I learn how to improve myself. It’s helped me with trauma from sexual assault and manipulative abuse. Youper has provided me a way to help ground myself and calm myself down. Even though it’s just an app and not a person I’m talking to the questions the app asks help guide my mind back into a positive space. It’s like journaling but the journal asks you questions to help you cope. It provides you with meditation and mindfulness techniques and helps you write a list of goals to help you cope with an anxiety filled day. It tracks what makes you feel certain emotions and it tracks your improvement over time. I cannot thank the developers enough for creating this app. It’s incredible. I also get reminders that help me remember to journal! Which is very helpful because I’m known to be a space cadet.

    App is a bit broken since the update. At first it would only show unclickable month headings under sessions and now its loading but is extremely slow. If I try to go to the other tabs after going to insights, they don't load. I'd like to maybe see an option to open the app directly to the "I'm feeling..." like how it was before. I can appreciate the expansion of the app but I'm not sure I'm a fan of the implementation.

  • 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!

    I have used this app for over 2 years. The new update has a lot of lag time and almost everything is behind a paywall, including features that weren't originally until a few days ago. The new update erased all past information I had put into the app and I am no longer able to see my past progress anymore. If you are going to pay for premium and are okay with lag times then the update is probably fine and helpful. I, unfortunately, will have to find another mood tracking app that works for me.

    This app was one of the best apps I had ever used in my life. Note the past tense. After the update, the app became cluttered and difficult to navigate. I liked when it was just a few tabs: one to talk, another to check past chats, another for tracking disorders, another for personality. I cant remember if there were anymore. That was such a clean, easy to use interface. The new tabs where you can choose what activity to do was much better when chosen during your chats with the ai.

    The new update completely ruined the app. Cluttered UI, bad UX, slow loading between pages, some sections of the app don't even load at all, and things are hard to find. I've used this app for over two years, and it's a real shame the developers decided to go in this direction. I have quite a bit of experience in QA and application testing, and I am baffled that this update got approved for rollout. Look elsewhere for a different app, I can't recommend this one at all.

    I used to love Youper as a way to track my mood each day to capture and notice the patterns of things which were triggers for different emotional states. The goal setting and friendly AI advice were genuinely useful. Edit: the more I try to interact with the update, the more frustrated I feel. All the chat sessions are super short and don't allow you to track your mood/triggers like you could before. It's not at all useful as a tool to manage depression now, don't waste your time. Such a shame.

    In the past, Youper had been my favorite app for mental health/personal growth. I used to enjoy how easy it was to navigate and how simple it was to check in. It really helped make checking-in with myself and my emotions a simple task to complete, which was challenging without it. Now the new update makes me feel very overwhelmed. The navigation is poorly organized and the UI is a poor experience: scrolling is not smooth. Unfortunately I don't have the same enjoyment and relief when using it.

  • SO helpful! Oct 16, 2018

    By Gwyn974
    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!

  • Very Impressed! Feb 24, 2019

    By LdyBeth
    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!

  • Surprised Jun 24, 2020

    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.

  • 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.

    Very helpful for tracking your mood and helping you feel better. It takes you into your thoughts to realize why you're feeling how you do and to help you cope. It is very organized in a helpful way with a simple graph. But, ever since the new update, the app has been very slow, and has locked a majority of the content behind a paywall.

    I miss the old version and wish I could revert back. There should be a function in settings to remove updates if you don't want it. It felt more personal having the AI chat to you instantly instead of stock images being the first thing you see. I understand this works for some, but the images slow down the app and is overwhelming, it looks corporate and has the words anxiety, depression driven into you, even if you want to talk about feelings that make you happy.

    The app is great & helps me clarify things, get in touch with my emotional health, &help me heal from certain conditions. Despite these I believe theres room for improvement: 1. Simplify the UI - target market: emotionally unstable people. The last thing we need is to be bombarded with options, be overwhelmed, & critical with ourself on "what if I chose the other option". 2. Display - I cant seem to find out how to get the white and orange display. The night mode makes makes me feel depressed.

    this is a wonderful app and the new additions are great, but can we get the option to have the old style logging integrated somewhere? Sometimes I want to quick log a mood, not go into a whole mental health project. Also it seems options are too concentrated now, how about if I want to log a small victory, where is the option for that?

    Would love the option to choose waking hours instead of conventional 00:00 reset and/or an option to input mood for previous days. New update is A LOT. I guess it looks nice and more sophisticated, but it was a very sudden change and it made me anxious because I could barely find what I needed (search button helped find "I'm feeling"). overall, this update made the app incredibly slow and nearly impossible to use. had to restart it 5 times.

  • 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.

    I have used Youper for the past two years or more and it was a nice usefull app but recent update changed it. App is now supper lagging and it is not usable at all. UX is really confusing and it is target related that you have to pick instead of starting conversation first. UI looks clugged up and it is just laggy experience makes it uncomfortable and not easy to use. RIP

  • 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.

    I loved the old youper, this new one is too much. You use to be able to be guided through to whatever you wanted to do with the talk option, but now they've separated the talk to only programmed options and it's all very clunky and irritating. You can no longer tailor it to yourself and it's no longer showing what influences certain moods. In the update you lost your original goal and can only chose pre-made options. You can no longer add to the list they provide when selecting influence factors

    Until the latest update, I would have given this app 4 stars. It was a great way of tracking my mood, which is very important as I'm learning to live with mood disorders. But ever since the update, I can't log my mood anymore. Pretty much all content is premium, the free app now seems useless. What happened???
