    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 disappointe

    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

    My therapist recommended DBT for me. I showed her this app, she was impressed, said keep doing it, and I am feeling better, and doing better.

    The interactive features didn't work. Anytime I tried to add a skill to a list or create a custom list an error msg appeared. No diary cards makes this even less interactive. I-phone has an app that works, has the cards, and is free. What's up with that?

    Like others have said, spelling errors and awkward UI. But such a great resource. Please keep working on it. I've already shared it with 4 people including my DBT therapist.

    Would like the wording on the pages more spreadout instead of so pushed together.
