Gratitude on the iPhone

iPhone Gratitude AppHere’s a usable app for your iPhone or iPod touch–one that can bring positive energy and change to your life.  Happy Tapper makes gratitude journals even easier.

I was introduced to gratitude journaling a few months ago. The idea is to write down the positive things that happened to you that day–ending your day each day on a positive note. My daughter and I started doing this, using traditional paper journals, but sometimes we are running late and we don’t have enough time to write at night. If we had Happy Tapper, perhaps we could actually do our gratitude journals every day!

In this virtual gratitude journal, you enter five things you are grateful for each day, then rate the day. You can even add a picture if you want. Then the application gives you a little inspirational quote as a reward for doing your journaling. And you can change the look of it to suit your own tastes. That’s better than our static paper journals–and a whole lot faster!

I’m really impressed with the usability of this little gem. My 9-year-old daughter picked it up and figured it out right away.

    Great article Ann! Thank you so very much. I think it’s so cool that your daughter is keeping her own journal. She’s such a smart girl.
