Gratitude Journey Available on the Apple App Store

An all-in-one gratitude journal application designed to increase happiness by focusing on the good in your life. Available on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Available now, the app Gratitude Journey provides users with a digital-age gratitude journal.  Gratitude journals are used by individuals who wish to focus on the positive things in their life.  Through the use of custom reminders and a sleek interface, Gratitude Journey automates the process of keeping a journal while encouraging users to maintain an attitude of gratitude.


Gratitude Journey‘s home page displays a chronological list of past entries.  Each day, the user is reminded to make an entry.  An entry has a date, time and category and an optional image.  Users can track their progress in various categories and view their progress over time in calendar or graph format.  The app offers a unique ‘gratitude gift’ pick-me-up feature: at a specified time in the day, users are sent a randomly-selected past entry.

Gratitude Journey Release: December 21, 2012!

App LogoWe are very excited to announce the release date (December 21, 2012)  for our first app: Gratitude Journey – The All-in-one Gratitude Journal App!

Gratitude Journey has been in the making for a greater part of 2012.  The idea came about as a sudden realization. I had been using a gratitude journal for months to essentially start my day on a happy note, and keep that going.  For those who don’t know what a gratitude journal is, it’s as simple as it sounds.  At specific times of the day, you journal about things that you’re grateful for in your life.  It’s amazingly effective.  By keeping an attitude of gratitude, you’re constantly reminded of the happy things in your life, which are often hidden by stress.

One day, a friend slash leadership coach was telling me about one of her morning habits.  She has this totally cute practice of asking strangers in her building elevator, “What are you grateful for today?”  I thought to myself, what a gift she is giving these people.  When someone starts thinking about the macaroni art their daughter made for them, they’re going to be rocking a smile all day long.  So the decision was made.  Everyone deserves this happiness and what better way to do it than through smart phone apps.

Gratitude Journey is designed to enhance and automate the process of keeping a gratitude journal.  You can add pictures to your entries, categorize them by type, and chart your progress.  The two key features that really make the app powerful are the Daily Alarm and the Gratitude Gift.  At specified times of the day, the app will send you randomly-selected past entries as a pick-me-up.

I can hardly contain my excitement until the release date.  Feedback from the beta testers has been stellar.  People are really getting value out of this practice.  Stay tuned, and be sure to get your hands on one of the first copies of Gratitude Journey for yourself or a loved one.

With love,
