A Doubter turned believer
I’m not gonna lie, from my personal background, I used to think these kind of mental health apps were a scam. I haven’t been feeling like myself lately and found this app on Instagram and I have been going for about two weeks strong writing every day, and this is the best thing that has ever happened to me! I have been feeling so clear minded, and have been super honest and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Some parts are not available if you don’t have a membership, but even the free version allows a lot of access to the main features. I just purchased the membership, and with a year plan I’m literally only paying 3.33 a month, which is pretty cheap for my mental sanity. I like the questions about myself where I can reminisce on experiences from way way back, and am so happy I have found this app. If you need an outlet of any sort and semi-enjoy writing out your emotions, this app is for you. Thank you to whoever made this because every day I feel it helping me become a better person. You can even add pictures and stuff to help you remember specific events for when you look back on your entries, which I think is super dope. I highly recommend it to everyone, but suggest you try it out for free first and see what I mean. After like 7 entries, it even shows you data on how you been feeling on a day to day. This app is great and I plan to use it for a long time.
Money Well Spent!
Ok I didn’t realize my free trial was over but that was my fault. I forgot I already tried this app months ago and reopened it. At first I regretted it because I already have another journal app but oh well. This is a very good app. It’s simple and an excellent guide to life’s daily topics (work, relationship, travel). The app doesn’t bring the user to a separate page per selected topic; it puts you back on the same page you’re working on in order to complete your day’s story - that’s brilliant and very considerate. This app is not complicated and it does what it’s supposed to do - encourage the user to write about life. No distracting forced cute illustrations or pastel soft colors. The design and guided steps keep the user focused on writing.
It’s unbelievable how some users are so surprised when they automatically get charged after the trial period. Reading the clear print when agreeing to the trial is encouraged. Also, $40 a year is a really good deal! I read most of the comments and many wants a life-changing, super app but doesn’t want to pay for it. The good people who are running this app - this is their source of income just like we go to work and get paid. Let us be grateful instead or opt for a wire notebook and pencil from the Dollar Tree. A free and amazing app - yeah, not happening.
I promise you, THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING JOURNAL APP. My only question is, what the heck is that logo character?
Just like a therapist!! But free!!
Overall, Reflectly is great app!! I really get to know myself better. Sometimes I don’t like speaking to people about my problems, so this app is PERFECT!! I don’t know why, but I feel more collected, calm, and less easily be irritate after I use this app in the morning. I’m just less likely to blow up and scream after my sister doesn’t give me my space and thinks she is the boss of everyone and everything!! This is app is so awesome!! ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
Every great app always has multiple minor flaws. Reflectly only has 1 minor flaw: There price of the special membership. It’s Special
membership price is about $80 a year. That’s a bit much. The thing says that it will help you become happier when Reflectly helps you solve your problems. I think you should get that no matter what! That isn’t a reason to pay that much a year. I’m not trying to hate on this app. It’s a great app!! I love it! I just mean Reflectly shouldn’t have the price of a special membership be so high! Some people have many problems and don’t know how to fix them. Those type of people need Reflectly to help them with those problems without paying $80!! This is a great app anyways! I think if you maybe take the price away, it’ll be the BEST app that you can have. What’s not to like; you get to know yourself better, not get irritated easily, and most importantly, BE YOURSELF!!
I love this app because it’s very straight forward and minimally functional. Some apps try too hard to make you write or log every little emotion you were feeling throughout the day and it makes you stressed and anxious to try and thing back to these feelings you forgot you were feeling that day. I don’t write everyday which is normal for me but I feel like this app reminds me to write at the perfect times, when I’m not busy and have a little bit of downtime to type out how my day was.
The only thing that I am still having trouble understanding is the rating spread. I understand the whole idea of it, and think it’s a good one, just needs a little more information or maybe a nice info graphic on how to enhance your mood when you’re feeling down or ways to relieve anger or stressful or anxious feelings based on what you wrote that day. If you wrote that you had a great day and everything was perfect maybe incorporate that with relatable quotes or articles on how to keep your motivation up and what you can do to do so in your work and personal life. I don’t know, this is just little things I would enjoy so maybe other people would too but I do love this app it’s relaxing and helps you get out the emotions you need in a way that doesn’t take up too much time yet lets you reflect on the important parts of your day.
Brother this is amazing!
I have been using this since I was 4 years old! I know that sounds so weird but it’s true! Every time I went home I would sit on my iPhone and will ya know! Write my feeling, what I did today, but there’s a question... WHY IS THIS APP SO GOOD!! I know I know I’m going to crazy, it’s just I love this app so much that I wanna write again when I was 4 years old I used to write a lot, but when I turned 8 years old I started stopping to write... but now since I’m 20 I wanna write again! I know it sound weird because I’m 20 years old again so i wanna write again!This app is amazing I want updates also! I don’t care if it’s a little update or a big update but..I like it the way it is it’s beautiful 😍 I hope you feel good, this is a quote I made “whenever you see a flower blooming it makes you bloom and grow!” Yes I know it’s kinda weird but it’s true! Your growing and there blooming, I’m not used to write a long paragraph but I think this needs a long nice paragraph 📄, anyways um more about the 4 years old... I also stopped writing because my mom didn’t like when I write! But now since I’m in my own apartment I can do whatever I want (of course I’m gonna clean my walls and floors!) even I want to read again!
Stay healthy stay sweet and don’t forget to be nice to each other ❤️ Baiiii!
Love it but some things are bad.
Ok so I really love this app, it’s really nice and aesthetic. It’s so fun to write your whole day down. What your mood was, the things you did today, and then you can look back at all those stories. Which is a lot of fun and very relaxing.
I do have a couple of problems though. So I was browsing and I accidentally hit the log out button. Obviously you can log back in, but when I logged back on everything was gone. I was literally going to cry. The whole thing was gone, it said I had no stories or streaks or anything. I was able to download my data and get it sent to my email, but I then had to rewrite everything. Which I was willing to do. I started writing one then went to bed. I woke up and looked at it and it was still gone. The poof it’s all back, I don’t know how but it was all back there. Ok my next problem. I do love Reflectly but to only be able to do one thing in not premium is annoying. So basically you have to enter 7 stories and you unlock your status. Then I’m going to look at my status and it says you have to have premium. I will pay for premium but I don’t want to, I’m going to save up my money. I read this in one review and I thought it was a good idea. You could complete like a certain amount of stories to unlock let’s say status. Actually unlock it though, be able to look at it and everything. So personally if this was my game I would do this. Thank you.
Generally A Good Start
I was feeling kinda down for a while, and when I started scrolling through apps, an app of the day was Reflectly. It looked cute so I tapped on it. I saw it had things to motivate your day and bring out the best in you. The challenges, questions, and goals help you rejuvenate happiness. So click I went and now I have the app. This reflection is recent, I have not even had the app for a day. But it’s friendly smiles and quotes to brighten your day help a lot. Reflectly is a self - journal to reflect your days. It’s probably described as a diary, but it is so much more. The app is very well
designed too. The graphics, characters, words, and more are smoothly operated by the creators. I feel really confident that I am going to be a lot more happy in the future. Conflicts and glitches aren’t a problem yet, as apprised to other reviews here. You may be wondering why I have four stars. It’s because I am a beginner. I haven’t unlocked all if the tools involved in the Reflectly. It has shown me what to do, but it does let you explore the world of the app. Reluctantly I like this app, and if your dealing with something you’d rather not share with other people, this is the app for you. I will update if I change something about my vote. But again, the app was a generally a good start. I can already fell my stress bleeding right out of me. So now, get Reflectly, it’s a great start!
This helps me journal like never before!!
By Ryan Haruguchi
I’ve never really been one to write reviews before - must be because I really love this app. But this has changed the game for me in being able to reflect on my day and journal! I’ve journaled in notebooks before but was never really consistent with it. But this has helped increase my consistency, ease of journaling, my “want” to journal, and include more details of my day - like being able to upload photos of it. I like how it asks questions to make me thing and reflect, although I don’t find all the questions worth answering, I definitely do like when I see a good question that helps me reflect! The only things I wish that were improved on this would be increasing how much you can type per section, having something to save all this data to, and idk if it’s desktop friendly, but if it’s not, then being able to use on a laptop/computer as well. But overall, I love this app and how convenient it is to journal. The hassle with journaling is being able to capture your thoughts and ideas at any given moment, meaning - having something to write on and write with. But the convenience of having this app on your phone to journal whenever really helps to simplify things and journal whenever you want
I love it. Honestly.
I’m not usually a sappy–wanna write in a journal about my life kind of person, and when I saw this app on an instagram ad I was a bit skeptical, but lately I’ve been going through a lot and I’m trying to come to terms with my emotions. I’ve tried many “log your day” types of apps.. and none of them have been as good as this one. It’s very calming, easy to use, straight forward, and efficient. I think the idea behind this app is awesome and it’s been executed very well. This has easily made its way to one of my favorite apps in such a short amount of time. I’ve already suggested it to my friends and I personally just think it’s perfect for someone like me.. someone who’s going through a bit of a rough time and just needs a place to vent. The app is already wonderful how it is, but of course ideally to me it could maybe have a section for something like breathing exercises, or a way to calm you down. I personally have a lot of anxiety and so I feel that would be very, very helpful. Even maybe some calming sounds, or videos. Just a suggestion of course! It’s still amazing how it is. I thank the people who made this app. I never knew I could care so deeply about a small little Icon on my phone. Thank you Reflectly team.
Love this app
This app is amazing. I have tried to start journals before and have always failed. I am not much of a big writing fan, when I would write in a journal I would not get to write everything I wanted because I didn’t want to write that much. My mind was going to fast for my hands so I would write summaries of what was going through my head. This made for a not so good journal entry. I would also forget to write often or just simply choose not to because I didn’t feel like writing. Luckily I am a faster typer than a writer so I am able to keep up with the thoughts going through my head. It is also a lot easier to write everyday because I can choose to get notifications. The app also has an amazing design that is pleasing to the eye ,and all my little entries look super neat rather than my sloppy- tired of writing, handwriting. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone who doesn’t know how go express their feelings or feels like they have no one to talk to because it is a great way to get those feelings off your chest. That is actually why I got this app because I struggle with talking about how I feel so, being able to write about has allowed me to relieve a lot of stress.
