Some of the app’s features are:
A detailed description of twelve negative thinking patterns and the methods to beat them.
Ten metaphors designed to help users deal with negative thoughts.

Rise Up + Recover: An Eating Disorder Monitor
What impresses me about this app is its utility; lots of mental health apps that target disorders tend to target one disorder and specialise in that but Rise Up + Recover tries to help people who are struggling to increase how much they are eating as well as people who are focusing on decreasing their intake. No one gets left behind.
The app comes with a meal log, emotion tracker, a coping skills section and the ability to download PDF summaries. All of these features indicate a supportive and practical app to help you take accountability for your progress.

The sessions involve guided meditation and are available in various lengths, from three to twenty five minutes.
