Get Happy iPhone App Review.

I don't know about you, but around the end of the year, I feel a lot of pressure to get everything in order. It's almost like the world will end on the 31st of December (oh, wait, that was on the 21st). You scramble left and right to put the final touches on your projects. If you're self-employed, you need to get your financing in order. It seems to me that the holiday season should be more about relaxation, spending time with the family or just sitting on your butt all day long playing on your iPhone, iPad, PlayStation or what have you. If the holiday season frustrates you, then perhaps you need a way to get happy during these "stressful" times. This is where Get Happy comes in as a paid download from the AppStore.

Get Happy? Why sure!

The iPhone app was designed by a practicing clinical psychologist to deliver simple daily tips to its users. These tips are meant to be ways to increase your happiness. It's not like going to the shrink, since at the shrink you do most of the talking. But it's similar in that it can help you create a better you.

Get Happy is visually appealing, yet simple, with a clear focus on the tips themselves. It is insanely simple to use, which is important - we wouldn't want the very thing that's meant to help you be happy, frustrate you even more.

So how does it work?

Apparently, there are four pillars of happiness and Get Happy is naturally structured around these. The app will separate its plethora of tips into tips pertaining to Relationships, Personal Growth, Leisure and Work Education. As soon as you start the app, without worrying about what's what, you can read your very first tip, selected at random from the app. The tip changes daily.

But if you want to get more out of the app, you need to make it suit your own needs. And this means telling it how happy you actually are. You have to rate on a scale of 1 to 10 for each of the pillars how you happy you feel in each particular area. The app will then pull together a list of tips based on your ratings.

You can favorite a tip by starring it and you can easily share it on social networks.

Unfortunately, that's all there is to it. I half-expected more out of this app. A more personal experience. More ways to customize my tips by sharing more traits of my personality. Something more than four sliders going from 1 to 10. Chicken soup for the soul lovers will get a kick out of this one though!
