Description

Happify is an app that gives you the essential tools and techniques to control your emotions. Whether you’re feeling happy, sad, confused, or manic, Happify has ways to increase your understanding and improve your control.

 

Overview

The difference between Happify and many other apps is its quantitative approach. Happify measures your wellbeing. The app offers simple exercises to promote positive change in the lives of most users within 2 months. Users can complete the activities on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop anytime and anywhere.

 

Whether you’re feeling happy, sad, confused, or manic, Happify has ways to increase your understanding and improve your control.”

 

Exercises

The simple mental exercises require no previous training on your part – only consistency. As long as you remain dedicated for a short time you can expect to see an increase in happiness.

 

Your Time, Your Schedule

If you have numerous other obligations in life, then Happify was designed for you. Since no one time or date always works for everyone, the app allows you to complete its exercises on various platforms, whenever you see fit.

 

Measures

Instead of offering approaches that lack rigidity, Happify uses specifically applied mathematics to measure your progress so you can be instantly motivated by your results. The numbers the app produces let you know how you’re doing so you don’t aimlessly without a goal of improvement or maintenance.

Helpful! Happify aims to give you some essential tools and techniques to control all your emotions; it asks insightful questions and suggests 'tracks' that you follow to help you get a hold on your emotions. It did take me a few moments to work out what a track was and what I was actually meant to do to enter / complete the 'track'. It's not something I'd ever heard of before! Whether you’re feeling chilled out, sad, confused, or manic - using the tracks are definitely helpful. I do recommend this app, there's a lot of quality here.

Pros

Focuses on giving you happiness.. and who doesn't like happiness!

Cons

You have to pay for the full version. It also took me a few minutes to work out exactly what a track meant, and what I was supposed to be doing.

This app is pretty entertaining and very unique! There are a lot of questions to answer before you get going, but the different tracks that it offers are then tailored to you. It's already taught me a thing or do about meditation and mindfulness and there is a lot of life-enhancing tools for someone to get stuck in to here. Even with what's available for free, there's a ton that can help with stress and anxiety. The track I really want to do it only available on premium content and i'm not sure if i'm going to purchase it yet - first i'll exhaust all of the free content - but I probably will.

Pros

The UI is on point, really easy to navigate and a lot of really quality content that is available here.

Cons

The main track I want to do it locked behind a paywall!

Well, I've been focused on stress relief apps of late and Happify is one of my best options. It is quite interactive since the interface allows the user to engage in other activities while relaxing and calming his/her mind. It is a good app for anyone undergoing either depression or an overall state of mental instability. I would highly recommend it as it gives you a certain high that just calms you down.

Pros

1. Its ease of use is a major plus for me 2. The customer satisfaction is easily top notch, since users have the opportunity to engage in other activities 3. It has a free subscription plan

Cons

Anytime I come across such apps that do not give you access to the premium plan without payment, it becomes a deal breaker for me.

First, the good - I love the games, particularly the balloon one. I like the fact that I can sign up with facebook too. I like the vibe and it definitely calms me. My main critique is that I'd like to see more variety on the free version; the premium is a little bit costly for me but it seems like all the good stuff is locked behind there. The one thing that I also found a little bit annoying is that some of the tracks look free but actually there are a bunch of things that, once you get there, you need to pay to unlock. Not loving that - I'd like to know what's free and what's not free upfront. But for what it is aside from that - it's good for keeping a handle on my stress and well made. If more features were free it would definitely get a higher rating from me.

Pros

Enjoy the games, enjoy the energy boosts - definitely helpful for managing anxiety.

Cons

It is pretty focused on getting you to sign up for premium which detracts from the enjoyment of using it. I'm not sure if I'll sign up for premium but don't love being pushed to do so.

Happify is a great app for those struggling with minor or major issues in their lives, and I highly recommend it! They have these “tracks”, which can help you change your mind and the way you look at things, reduce stress and negative thoughts and start feeling better about you and your life. They will ask you questions and then assign you to complete activities that will probably make you feel much more positive!

Using Happify allowed me to see the difference in my happiness from week to week. In addition, it has allowed me to further gain insight into my positive emotion and life satisfaction through its features that allow me to score on: savor, thank, aspire, give, empathize and revive to gain further insight in my well being and happiness and how to keep score.

Pros

I am not that good with technology but I was able to navigate through the app really well. With that being said, the app is easy to use and user-friendly... doesn't matter if you are not tech-savvy or not.... you will get through it easy.

Cons

Not much really. It is really easy to use.

I love how customized this app is! It truly feels like it caters to my specific needs. It’s a visual and makes you feel so much better about the little achievements I make each day. I used this app since I felt stuck and stressed in my job, and the free track in the app made me feel happier about my choices that I was debating before.

Pros

There are many free tracks to choose from, alongside paid ones, so you can enjoy the app even without spending a dime. User interface is very easy and gives a warm feeling inside. There are also some “daily” goals you can reach which I feel are such a help.

Cons

A little bit too much “wording”. Would be nice to have a little more visuals and video.

I love this app for so many reasons but the most important one is that it kept me entertained and busy enough to forget my negative feelings for a while. It is not mere distraction however because every second on the app is me learning how to better deal with all these issues after putting my phone down.

Pros

The surveys are both relevant and fun. It didn't feel too serious, which would have only triggered my anxiety (yes, really). Rather it felt relaxed and comfortable whiles still asking the questions that would be important to helping me get the results the app promises. It is great how every activity begins with a reason “why it works.” I always read that before I begin every activity. So I go on, looking forward to the signs on why this is already the right course to healing and health and I haven't been disappointed. With activities such as Aspire, Empathize, Give, Thank, Revive and Savor, you can already get an idea on why everything you need to be a better you is right at your fingertips. Also the articles are inspiring and informative and I so love reading so I felt even more catered too, personally. The community is filled with beautiful, kind and interesting people who are on a similar journey with you. The app understands that there is every possibility you might need further help and I was happy to see information about where you can find that, provided easily after my assessment. I hope I didn't leave anything out because there are so many useful resources to benefit from and I guess you will just have to try to see it all (in case I left something out)

Cons

In order to get a complete score breakdown or personalized activity recommendations, you have to upgrade. I understand the need for this but I feel like it could still have been done in a better way. For instance, through donations so that those who can actually afford to would generously contribute and even those who may not be able to pay for the full upgrade plan could still offer small tokens to help the app be better. Better still, the app could allow ads on free plans but still offer the full benefits to users and those who can afford to can then pay to have an ad free experience. Personally, I prefer ads and full access to no ads and limited access but that is just me.
