I Am Sober - Sobriety Counter app good for
This app along with counselling and the Recovery Elevator podcast helped me finally get sober.
Guys Ive used this app forever. Thanks so much for finally updating! I wish there were six stars to give.
The main screen is much better. I like the focus on length of sobriety while being able to see days to next milestone.
The savings thing still doesnt interest me. It would be great to be able to customize the main screen and select which tiles are wanted.
I still dont get trying to make the app "social". That seems to contradict the whole anonymous aspect of AA et al. But I could just be a curmudgeon.
With all that I do like the app as my sobriety calendar. Four stars.
The new update is awesome and the daily motivation keep me focused on my sobriety. To stay so sober, you really need to take it one day at a time and this app is a perfect solution! Thank you so much!!!! My life is so much better
Love this app specially with the daily quotes of motivation!!
I like this app. Im tracking my sobriety for something other than alcohol so it is nice that it is so simply. Adapts to everything. The only improvement for me would be to display the number of days on the icon directly.
Some bad moments
Its not exactly accurate. I got sober before I got pregnant, and it says Ive been sober for 7 months and Im almost 36 weeks pregnant. But its a cute app.
Apps notifications dont work. Tried to contact support but no communication options are provided.
Main reason I bought this app, was to wake up every morning and have a notification on my device which I constantly go on throughout everyday. Unfortunately one of their key selling points was for daily notifications, and that component does not work. Huge let down and I hope they fix this promptly or my money would feel like a waste.
My fault for buying the app before checking the reviews, but this app hasnt been updated in 2 years and is not optimized for newer devices. Disappointing, considering this is a paid app, youd think the developers would work to keep up!
Too many changes in directions Im not interested in.
The graphics are now rather boring. They remind me of an Easter greeting card. The previous graphics were great, a la "Monument Valley ".
The emphasis on cost savings has nothing to do with my addiction. It would be nice if I could continue to ignore it. Otherwise its really intrusive.
The list "drugs of choice" doesnt pertain to my addiction. Also, the wording isnt focused on recovery. Thats the whole point of the app - to recognize how long Ive been in recovery. Or at least thats why I loaded it. I want to see how far Ive come to help me see I can continue for today. One day at a time.
I have no clue what the "clubs" are for. Im in a fellowship - an Anonymous fellowship. I have no interest to post myself as having an addiction. Kinda defeats the purpose of the whole anonymous thing.
I liked in the previous version being able to see my length of sobriety and time to my next milestone on the same page. Now I have to leave the counter page (which is the closest to what Im looking for) and go to the (boring and ugly) main page to see days to next milestone.
I suppose I can live with this version but Id prefer fixing some of the issues mentioned above.
Lastly there are times I have to hope that someone might not see the app name. "I Am Sober" is my goal but I really dont want to advertise it. "I didnt know you were an alcoholic." Is not something I want to hear as someone glances at my phone. Perhaps "Recovery". I dont care just nothing so indicative of alcoholism or addiction.
Some things I wish they would improve are: in the money you have saved, I wish it didnt start over if you relapse, rather just deduct the day or two you messed up but Im in my first thirty days so I dont foresee this being a long term problem. Also maybe a forum or inspirational quotes other than "another day sober" lol just kind of a lot for 1.99$
