    The concept is great, although the missing diary card is a problem. Font is hard to read (scaleability would be useful). Navigation is a nightmare, although that is partly a function of the complexity of DBT. There is a problem with responsiveness on my low end, 7" tab (Amicroe), and the Crisis List doesn't work on anything. For all that, there is a lot of useful information and it is still worth

    I find myself disappointed that I paid for this app. It has good information, but is not user friendly. Also, I emailed the creator MONTHS ago about integrating a diary card. I was told it was in the process, but have not seen one added. Super disappointed, wish I could get my money back.

    Very helpful app for when you're on the go as well as to just sit down and read.

    Can't find a diary card app anywhere... Maybe you could include one. I know many who complain of this same thing
