I truly do love this app. I have been using it for about a week now, and it has been more helpful than any other app I have tried. I am a young mother to two young boys, I work full time, and go to school full time. I have struggled for years now to learn how to take better care of myself due to my priorities are always making sure my children are taken care of while my health and wellness, both mentally and physically, took the back seat. For the first time in my life, I am actually creating healthy routines for myself. In the morning, I meditate, drink a glass of water, take my vitamins, and stretch. In the evenings I tidy up, read for 30 minutes and write down what went well today. And I’m still only using the free version! I think that is the best thing of all. Due to a strict budget, I cannot afford the premium version of Fabulous at the moment. However, I can still access a lot of the features that are essential to me bettering myself through this process. This also allows me to make sure that this app is everything I need it to be before I make the hefty $50 yearly subscription (I know $50 is not a lot by any means, I just can’t afford that right now🤷🏼♀️) and that’s okay! Because I can still thankfully do everything I need to do starting out. I sincerely appreciate the developers of this app, and I hope to stay with Fabulous for many years to come!☺️
This is a life changer
As a sophomore in high school who is currently taking ap classes and college courses while still trying to be mentally and physically healthy, this is it. When I was a freshmen I LONGED for a way to engage myself in my studies and my mental/physical health. I had to find an equilibrium. I had no motivation or reason to try at anything. I was looking for help everywhere: talked to my parents, friends, counselors, and a crisis hotline. I couldn’t find a solution so I pushed myself to do a lot of good habits, but in the end, it only deprived me of my motivation and will. I was overwhelming myself as I wanted to find a solution to my ailment. An ailment that ruins many lives. Lives ruined by procrastination. Now as I was looking for help online, I came across fabulous. The app seemed to good to be true and I gave it a shot for my own well being. Needless to say, I am grateful for this. As of now I have completed the courses: “An Unexpected Journey” and “Staying on the Road.” I’m currently doing “A Fabulous Night.” I know it sounds cliche of me to say this but it has changed my life for the better. I now feel happier, motivated, focused, confident, and passionate about my studies and life. Whether you’re 16, a middle aged person, or in your late years of life, it truly never is too late to help yourself and nourish as an individual. 10/10
I can’t say enough about this app. I’ve been in therapy for years for some losses etc. I’ve currently been enrolled in a DBT course,8 weeks to get through 4modules. You can’t reach knowledge or gain enough practice to be great at this in one course. This app you have here is the perfect in between classes to work with as extra coping mechanisms.. it brings in soooo much helpful information for personal care and development. It’s very easy to use. For me, it is not overwhelming, you can do as much or as little as you want during the 3 parts of your days. It has given me more practice in becoming one mindful where everybody should learn. This mindfulness can be done in 5 minutes or less or longer. It’s giving your mind a break. Instead of racing around thoughts, you learn to focus and remain calm. The meditations here are very easy to sit back and listen. I’ve even been so relaxed I fell asleep which is very hard for me to do. It has done wonders in just these few days to work with your app. I love the challenges! I also like the way you can choose what you want for your daily routine. If what you offer isn’t enough you provide a way for us to add our own routines in, if it’s not working on the list. Thank you so much for offering this FABULOUS app.
So far, so great!

I just got this app this morning so I’m basing my rating on user friendliness/ set up/ and its ability to hold my attention. The app kept me going, probably one of the easiest apps I’ve set up, definitely one of the fastest. Some apps can be work in just filling out the info but, this app was smooth & explained things clearly. I’m looking forward to seeing how this goes. I need something motivating in my life right now and I’m hoping this does the trick. I had always been a very disciplined, driven, fun, outspoken, and in great shape but, the last 18 mos~things have become very difficult for me. I had several big surgeries which left me in lots of pain but this pain is nothing compared to the pain in my heart... after loosing 3 loving people in our family. As my dad use to say... “Life happens kiddo”, but it seems I let it go on w/o me. I’m really hoping to find my fire again and hoping it’s as easy as finding this app~ something tells me... it’s not. All life’s greatest things~take work and I’m now desperate & willing~ just need reminders to keep going and I hope this app is a piece of the puzzle which makes the difficult times bearable. So, I plan on updating this review a few times, as I embark on my journey to become the once driven person I was~
so until then...
Best app on my phone

The old me wouldn’t believe that an app could change her life so much, but in truth, this app has made a huge impact on my daily life. Before Fabulous, I would wake up 10 minutes before I had to leave in the morning. I never ate breakfast, I didn’t make my bed or clean my room, I almost never had enough time to wash my face, and to be quite honest, I didn’t always remember brush my teeth. And it wasn’t just in the mornings that I struggled. During the day, I would hardly ever exercise outside of activities I needed to do, and overall I wasn’t making time for myself.
Now, because of Fabulous, I have routines that I follow each morning, noon, and night that I customized to fit my interests and time schedule. I always remember to brush my teeth btw, along with many other things I used to struggle to do, and I’ve become more aware of my feelings, and my goals. I even feel that I have become more ambitious. I’m honestly super glad I got this app, and not only that, but I also highly recommend paying for the subscription. Through that, I got access to meditational practices, the ability to customize my routine, start new interests, and build many new habits besides the first sets. I just want to say, thank you so much for creating this app!
I’ve never been the type of person to steer towards the “self-help” or “self-improvement” section. In the last year, however, I began a journey of self discovery. It wasn’t on purpose. It just sort of happened. The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn. Some things need to change entirely. Some things I didn’t even realize that I was doing. This app is so well researched and written. The content is amazing. Especially for someone like me who is usually a total skeptic. I decided to give it a shot, and I am actually seeing results. I have always been a cynic, pessimist, and grew more and more neurotic as I got older. That pattern kept growing until I would have bouts of depression that I literally could not get out of. Spirals of self destruction, and I couldn’t stop the thoughts. Well, let me tell you - the thoughts will creep up. But I check myself. It’s starting to come more naturally now. My brain is like “hey, where do you think you’re going?”, and it stops all that negative stuff in it’s tracks. I’ve never been able to do that before. It’s absolutely stunning. I can’t thank the creators enough. I wholeheartedly believe that I’ve gotten a second chance at life. Not just existing anymore. And I finally believe that I deserve it.
Fabulous is .. well .. ok I won’t say it but it is!!
I have found myself off track & wandering through life after a few years of retirement and then a great deal of personal loss. 2018 resolutions were filled with hopes of finding something to restore some normalcy to my life; that reading a good book in front of the fire on a rainy day kind of normalcy. I had already made the commitments to weight & fitness long before resolution season & they were going fairly well. I just happened across the Fabulous app when I was in the App Store looking for a To Do list app. It has truly been the answer to what I’ve been looking for, although I had no way of knowing for what I was searching. Fabulous is taking me back to the basics, and teaching me how to instill habits again, something I had unknowingly given up. Having this structure is giving me something to lean on as I begin to learn how to be myself again, after so much sadness and misery. Thank you Fabulous developers for creating such an innovative program to help those of us that have derailed. One thing, I did sign up for their upgraded program, Sphere, and it was just too much for me to take in. Maybe later but for now I will let Fabulous take care of my needs!! I am Fabulous after all!!
Fine app, way too much clutter.
My annual subscription for this app is about to expire and even though I kept up with it for the better part of the year, I’m not going to renew. This app utilizes some great techniques for motivation and accountability but it ultimately dogs itself down with too much content. It is constantly putting more and more information in your face about things to read and new challenges to accomplish and so on. It’s not abnormal to open the app in the morning to begin my morning routine and be confronted by two or three messages that I have to swipe away or close out of or decline just in order to use the app. Every time you finish a routine, which it encourages you to have three routines in a day (morning, afternoon, evening), it loads a motivational picture that you then must click out of to use the app again, and you have to wait a few seconds for it to even be close-able. I don’t need three motivational messages a day. So all in all, this app could benefit from simplifying its UI and content a bit. Being encouraged occasionally with small messages or goals or streaks along the way would be helpful, or at least the ability to customize or opt out of most of these features. Maybe I’ll check back in a few years.
Terrible company and customer service.
This company is in the business of stealing people’s money. Not only is their app ridiculously expensive, they don’t offer refunds for accidental auto renewal, or if you did not like the app. EVERY other company I have ever had experience with will offer refunds if you are not happy with their service, if it did not meet your expectations, and especially if you were accidentally paying for an app for an entire year beyond when you ever even opened the app. It is clear to me that they cannot afford to be in this business if they are going to rob their customers of their money when they aren’t happy with the service. Again, I have experience with many many apps and services and everytime I have asked for a refund I get it, no. questions. asked. The fact that this company has the audacity to tell me they are keeping my money when I don’t even have the app still downloaded on my phone is mind blowing to me. Get out of this business, you aren’t helping people, you are robbing me. My auto renewal was on Dec 30th and I emailed them days later. they are keeping my money for the entire 2020 year. I could understand if they maybe kept one month but refunded me the rest but to keep this ENTIRE year of my money when I’ve been very clear with them I am not using this app is just ridiculous. Do not support this company, they clearly do not care about their customers whatsoever.
Just let the app guide you.
This app has brought me out of the COVID-19 quarantine feeling of helplessness and confusion. I am so happy that I did the trial and didn’t let my tendency to control things take over. My advice on how to do the trial: just let the app guide you. Content is slowly dripped to you. You don’t know what is next. Just accept that and trust your new coach, which is an app full of a ton of science-based content. The first thing you are told to do is start a morning routine of drinking a glass of water when you first wake up. If you already do this, then just check it off and be patient. If you must, start one of the challenges so you have something new to do, but try to start small. For the first few days of the trial I felt like the app was asking me to just totally trust it, even though it hadn’t given me a good enough reason. I also felt that 7 days was not long enough. But by day 5 I was feeling really good. I had set an alert on my phone to cancel if I didn’t want to start a paid subscription, but I decided that this is worth it. I am now on day 8 and really feeling good about my morning, afternoon, and evening routines! I love this app!
