Whats in The Works?

I just wanted to write a quick blog post of the developments that are currently in the works.

Some of these developments have been in the works for a long time, due to having a full time job and needing some personal time. However, we have been working hard and hope that you enjoy the updates when they do come out.

Recipe Keep

Recipe Keep is undergoing a huge revamp, with every feature re-built from the ground up, making them more efficient and better from a user experience point of view. We do not have anything to share at the moment as these updates are currently under wraps through our Alpha program, however, these updates are going to venture out to the Beta testing program soon.

Beta?

Want to joint the beta program to receive updates early for Recipe Keep? You can do so here. You can also submit your request from the Play Store page itself for the app, which you can find here.

 

As always, thank you everyone for your support and stay tuned for more updates soon!

Let's Write About It For #WorldSuicidePreventionDay

Everyone needs help from time to time and that is okay. Writing down what you are feeling or experiencing is sometimes as good as talking about it. Getting it off your shoulders can really help.  The 10th September marks #WorldSuicidePreventionDay. If you are feeling suicidal or down, please do not hesitate to talk to someone.

Me - My Mental Health continues its efforts to provide as much information regarding helplines as possible. Currently with support for 9 countries and more coming in the future. You can find international helplines here

Me - My Mental Health will always be free. And you can download it from the Google Play Store.

We have released an update for Me - My Mental Health to coincide with #WorldSuicidePreventionDay

Update news...

For the past few weeks, we have been working on a nice update for Me - My Mental Health.

Places

Store your location in your entries for future reference.

We feel that is may be useful to be able to link your entries with a location. This can help if you look back at later entries, be they positive or negative. This links real life emotions with real life locations. You can remove locations from each entry should you wish.

A Fresh Lick of Paint

Updating the look to more fit Andoid guidelines is important. With the new bottom bar on the app, this fits with Material Design Guidelines. This helps simplify the navigation process and allows for easier one hand usage!

A Little Laugh Goes a Long way

What better way to make you laugh or groan than terrible jokes? We added a new feature that will show you these bad jokes. We are constantly adding these terrible jokes and must admit that even we had a giggle while implementing these jokes! There is even a section where you can suggest a new joke to be added to the app! We highly recommend that you do this.
