Helped me Mend like nothing else could 5/5
This app is like free counseling/therapy. Even though it's been a while since my breakup, the app approaches my situation with such personalized help and feedback that it's almost eerie, because it's so helpful for my healing. Mend's trainings have helped me heal like nothing else could for the past 4 months. I'm dreading running out of free trainings, but the trial run is pretty generous and has without a doubt changed my life and helped me move on. Thanks, Mend!
I was skeptical about this app, because how can an app help you get over a break up?
My was I wrong!! Even though I only did the trial version, that week of advice and journaling made such a tremendous positive difference in my life. It’s been a year since the breakup, and I’m now in a new healthy & lovely relationship. But I won’t delete this app, because going back to read my journal entries & the interviews/articles continue to mark an impact on me. If you’re in a decent financial situation, I would highly recommend purchasing the annual service. It’s hell of a lot cheaper than buying alcohol or paying a therapist to fill the void. Thank you so much to the creators, this app made such a huge difference in my life.
Absolutely fantastic!! 5/5
Love this app so much, has genuinely helped in my healing process
A perfect guide to a better understanding 5/5
I can’t begin to tell the world how much mend means to me, I found mend in a really dark time of my life and was looking for an app to help me keep track of my days of a breakup of a marriage for over 17years, it did that and so much more, the daily mood feature and the valuable tips that inspired valuable journaling really helped me not only recover but helped guide me to a better understanding of myself, I can’t thank the mend team enough for such a valuable resource, and would sincerely recommend the app to anyone who has experienced a break up.
I updated the app with great hope that it would be usable.
They added new features... which are basically inaccesible. All the same technical issue are there.
In general, it’s better business practice to make sure that your what your selling is in working order before trying to expand.
just subscribed - already feel better 5/5
i just signed up for a monthly subscription today, and after my first free day of training, i cried but i felt so much better afterwards. i love the way this app is designed and how i feel like my pain is validated and not a burden.
More trainings 4/5
This app has been really helpful so far, but the beginning of a breakup is the hardest part. I feel it would be more productive to have at least two trainings per day in the initial month than wait for the ‘moving on’ sessions. Breakups always hurt more in the beginning, so why not receive more support when you need it most?
The support you need 5/5
As a full time worker, my friend group was VERY limited. A 4 and a 1/2 year unhealthy abusive relationship ended, and I didn’t have much support other than my parents. This app was the support I needed in order to not turn back to the relationship out of comfort and familiarity. This app changed my life. Because I didn’t go back to my ex, my husband and I met and fell in love! ❤️❤️❤️
I know this is a great must have app to deal with life, I have to download it and keep it (breakups are one of those things that our society, parents, school, friends don’t teach us; somehow we are just supposed to know, but we don’t). What I find to be unfair is that it’s not inclusive, it’s geared only towards women, excluding the men, which is discriminatory, but not on purpose of course. Women have a lot of support and sympathy out there for breakups, for navigating through this difficult world, relationships, women only gyms, etc, but some of us men need some extra help too. I hope this app can be more inclusive in the future, and I will recommend this app to both sexes
Very helpful app and everything was going well, until the start of the program said that we are animals, I’m sorry but I’m a Christian and God did not make as a animal, but to his image. It is very disrespectful to no be aware of people believes by speaking that way
Might be helpful 4/5
Okay, I changed my rating from 3 to 4 Stars. I guess tbh, I need something like this right now. Sure I have a friend who gives his advice, but I don’t always agree with him. And sometimes he doesn’t get me either. So this app is like therapy in a sense. Guy or girl, we all get broken hearts. This app just might be helpful for all of us.
I just wonder what they do with all our personal info that we give them.
It helps 5/5
I’m still miserable. But mend is awesome. Try it.
Starting over 3/5
I would really love to restart from day 1. I had periods of on and off but the app kept going through the days. Any way to reset?
Best decision you'll ever make! 5/5
I've only been on the app for one day and I already know it's going to help me get through this devastating and horrific time in my life.
Self-Reflection During Break-Up is Priceless 5/5
My favorite part about this app is the Facebook group of fellow Menders, in addition to the daily journal entries. Serious self-reflection is priceless, especially when going through the pain of a broken heart. This app is serving me well right now, in addition to other healthy coping mechanisms. I’m excited to see where this app goes, as the customization of the Mending journey could be improved.
Beyond grateful 5/5
I was referred to this app from a friend and I’m so grateful for that! It’s exactly what I needed. I felt like I was listening to a friend. Beautifully done ❤️👏
This app helped me through a terrible breakup 5/5
I am so grateful for this app. After I broke up with my bf I was looking for something to count the days when I found Mend. The whole program has been a life saver for me. I feel like I have friends who are encouraging me everyday through the lessons and the stories. This app is totally worth it. The only thing I wish was different is the community piece. The community is on Facebook and I left Facebook to help me get over the breakup. I was not able to participate in the community. Even missing that piece I give mend my highest recommendation. If you are heartbroken it will help you.
Thank you 5/5
Mend has been incredibly helpful to me as I recover from a breakup. Most of the content is really on point and well-timed, and it has made a big difference to me to check in daily and make it part of my routine. Elle’s voice is also really soothing.
A few suggestions to make it even better:
- catalog the articles somehow so you can easily find what’s relevant for you (more efficient, plus sometimes irrelevant things can feel a bit triggering)
- add some analytics on the mood and journal entries, so you can see how you’ve improved over time
- change the “what’s your current relationship status?” question to be more sensitive (mine popped up pretty quickly and made me feel worse)
Overall the app is amazing, and I feel that the trainings are really sensitive and professional (and often echo what I hear from my therapist and other self care resources).
Elle and team, you’re the best! Thanks for reminding me that I’m not alone in my heartbreak, and supporting me like a friend throughout!
Love this app and the people behind it 5/5
Very helpful, very on point, very healthy approach to a sad heartbreaking time in life
Mending and Healing Day by Day! ☀️ 5/5
This app has truly been integral to my healing process after ending a 3-1/2 year relationship. The days since I last contacted my ex were constant motivators to keep pushing forward without relapsing, and the lessons and journaling really allowed me to deal and confront my pain instead of numbing my suffering. I use the app every morning and night, and only wish for more features so I can engage with it more frequently! The creator’s podcast “Love Is Like a Plant” is also a great supplement.
I am so grateful that Elle Huerta created this app. ❤️ It has helped me so much. 🙏🏽
Like someone has your back 5/5
By Kandie Cayne
Reminders during the day that you are going to be okay. Reminding you to love yourself like you want to be loved.
Exactly what I Needed 5/5
I looked forward everyday to the training. Little by slowly, I felt comforted, encouraged and emotionally better. The training is on point - honest and heartfelt. Thank you Mend!
Like a period logger but worse 1/5
It breaks all the time first of all. Downloaded mostly to see what it aims to do. Feedback: when processing a breakup you obsessively talk to one friend to get over other urges. Journaling and audio stuff doesn't cut it. Also your audio loading thingy is breaking.
This app is life changing 5/5
Exactly what I needed to help me move forward with my life, so grateful for the daily trainings and the little reminders throughout my day. I would recommend this to anyone who is trying to grow and learn from the experience.
Blue Fool 5/5
By Dodger Loss
After counseling & EMDR, Mend helped me thru the setbacks that get triggered at times when we move forward in life. Thru the various media, topics, strategies & resources, Mend had all the help in one app. Ellle does a great job as moderator; her knowledge & methodology are sound and impactful. I was doubtful that an app could really help; that's why I tried it. But Mend made a believer & healer with me. Thank you!
Extremely helpful 5/5
I adore this app, when I first broke up with my boyfriend I needed something to help me get through the day because I was so sad. This app is like having your personal therapist speaking to you every day encouraging you to keep going. It’s like having a best friend that cares for you. I highly recommend it if you are going through a difficult time after breaking up with someone. I am so grateful to the creators of this app because they helped me in the toughest times of my life when I didn’t know what to do
Great content but... 3/5
Poor execution... It's a shame that all the wonderful and valuable information here is jumbled all over the place. There's a lack of continuity in the program. I found some of the information presented came too early in the program and some crucial and fundamental advice was presented way too late. Perhaps this is more personal rather than a rule, but it didn't quite work for me in that sense.
Also, I think there are errors when content is being referenced by Elle. I found some trainings in which she says something like "Yesterday we talked about this..." Or "Tomorrow we'll talk about that" to be completely disconnected from the trainings preceding or following the references.
I think if the app gets revamped and organised really well, it could be far more effective.
What a thoughtful and effective app. It seemed that each day I was experiencing exactly what showed up in my audio training. It’s so helpful to have a neutral party hold your hand through a breakup. Friends and family have a bias and are likely tired of the complaints and tears and the statement “it takes time” has an expiration date. So, it’s nice to hear encouragement, to hear feel your feelings, and be able to journal. I’m impressed. And very grateful.
Best Idea Ever! ❤️ 5/5
I love this app and I can't wait to see what they add to it. Maybe more or longer audio sessions? I love the stories as well, they give you exactly what you need to hear when you need it. Keep it up Team Mend! 😊
Not good 1/5
By Frank tappa
It's a waste of money
Not just another breakup app! 5/5
This app does an amazing job of encouraging and promoting transformation as a whole. The diverse content helps you in all areas of life, not just the romantic. It definitely breaks the stereotype of the “breakup app” or the breakup victim and really empowers you to change your thinking and move on! It is like a best friend in your pocket!
A LIFE SAVER! 5/5
MEND app has helped me grow tremendously! It has saved me from my first heartbreak- which was after a 2 year relationship, both of us in our mid fifties. So not a "typical first heartbreak ".
It has helped me heal, taught me to love myself, taught me about what actually happens to the body during a heartbreak including explains the constant physical ache in my heart and gut. It has given me tools to use to move forward and help me cope, as well as help me understand all the issues behind why it didn't work and what I can learn from that. It has given me hope for my future as well as taught me what I want to look for in a future relationship. It has also taught me that it's perfectly wonderful to NOT be in a relationship and that my single life can be wonderful and FULL of happiness!!
(Something that I NEVER thought possible as my lifelong dream has been to be in a "happily ever after" relationship!
MEND is an honest to goodness LIFESAVER!! It is absolutely invaluable and PRICELESS! 💞 and WORTH EVERY PENNY you spend!!
Mend Truely changes lives 5/5
I was this app on planet of the apps this summer and was skeptical of its effectiveness. Of course that was also while I was in my longest running relationship. Mend has saved my life. The podcasts and journaling are helping me to move on. Thank you so much Mend team!
Absolutely love Mend 5/5
I'm going through a breakup and I have to say the content is excellent. It really has been like a friend holding my hand through the whole terrible emotional landscape of what I've been going through. This has taught me to take care of myself, listen to myself, focus on myself and spend time away from my ex and try to heal. I only removed one star because the app is a bit glitchy- I've had a problem with it deleting journal entries a couple times and I also wish the "recommended for you" changed after you read the articles. Otherwise, content wise, it's incredible and it's really helped me a lot. Thanks you guys for this app.
I updated my app and many of the glitches went away! Also the mend team is very responsive. Thanks again for everything.
Encouraging Notification Messages 5/5
I just want to get it across to the developers of Mend that this app has really helped me move on to better things in life for a while now. I still struggle quite a lot but never stop pushing.
Something that has been such a pleasant surprise is the little notifications of encouragement that have been coming out. This is such a comforting and encouraging thing to get at random. I hope they'll continue to come out.
Motivational and inspiring 5/5
By Lani Del Rey
An absolute effective and efficient way to help yourself and mend a broken heart. You will grow and learn more about yourself and others.
Really useful 5/5
This is a really useful app. You have 7 days free and then it moves to a subscription based model. The lady's voice is really soothing and caring. I found it very helpful
Best Break Up Buddy Around! 5/5
I don't even know how I found Mend. Probably in a late night panic trying to find any book, article, magic elixir to fix my broken heart. Somehow I stumbled on the magic that is the Mend app! And totally recommend it to anyone in an ending relationship or a relationship that is done/over.
Starting a new lesson daily and listening to Mend's creator Elle gently talking about breakups in ways you may have yet to consider is soothing and empowering. Journal prompts give you the chance to describe your pain, your perception and reasons for the breakup, and anything else you can think of - you can even go back to add what an a-hole your ex is for something you previously didn't include, lol! The journal feature alone is really a lifesaver - to your support system of friends, family, clergy, anyone helping you through your breakup really! As much as these people love you, even they need a break from your breakup obsession and inability to speak or focus on anything else (come on, we have ALL been that supportive friend/breakup buddy for a broken-hearted friend!) Seeing how many days have passed from your breakup reminds me that if you've come this far, you can definitely do one more day. The awesome website with advice for when you WANT SO BAD to text your ex is a good distraction. Yeah, you can prob journal, listen to podcasts, calculate dates and all that on your own for free - heartbreak for me (this go 'round) has me disorganized and yeah, a wreck. Having Mend and all it's functions in one place is worth every penny to me.
I've read some reviews complaining about the cost of Mend. Mend is a business (whose mission is to mend broken hearts and provide support), but they have to pay for content, networks, advertising and all other expense a start up app must pay.
The subscription rates aren't ridiculous (Tinder Plus is $20 per MONTH; if you think that may be a better way to mend 😝), and again, although Mend is altruistic and aims to help those in need of help, the bills still got to get paid. I personally highly doubt Mend workers and contributors are diving in loads of cash Scrooge McDuck style 😝 from subscription revenues. You have to consider cost and value. To me, the value of the service justifies the cost to use the Mend app as I work through this breakup.
Not everything is for everyone, of course and Mend may not be the 24/7 breakup buddy in your pocket as it has become for me. If nothing else, give Mend a try for the 7 day trial (generous compared to 1 day trials I've seen for games and such!)
The broken-hearted are a group of people not fully themselves at the moment, but tough AF and will get back up again with a little guidance! Better than before! Who knows? Mend may be the thing you were looking for to get you back!
Good luck on your journey - it gets better! The only way to get through it is to go through it - may we all be better, kind and never bitter when we come out of the other side!
All the best - SS
Lifesaver <3 5/5
If you are going through a breakup or are having trouble letting go of a relationship that has ended, please do yourself a favor and download Mend.
Mend is for everyone - not just women.
Mend starts with an ex detox for those who are still in touch with their exes. For me, contact was not an issue. I really encourage ppl to continue beyond the detox. That is where I found the most support with Mend. Elle (the App's founder) guides you and offers insight to your feelings (there is a scientific reason why you are feeling like a junkie on withdrawal for your ex) and challenges you to grow as a person (forgiving...yourself!) through daily trainings. Mend also sends you emails for self care tips, recipes, and advice for getting through the tough early stages and when holidays begin to creep up on the calendar.
Mend is not just an app. It is also a community of fellow Menders who are going through this with you. They "get it" and so does Mend! If you are willing to put in the work to love yourself, Mend and the Menders will help you through this, one day at a time.
Forces you to agree to subscription after 1st day 1/5
Despite the fact that the app clearly states "the first 7 sessions of training are on us", it forces you to agree to a subscription plan after the first day. And the first day is essentially an introduction, which doesn't give you a good idea if it's worth it or not. On top of that, it bugs you to subscribe multiple times during the first day, which if you're feeling vulnerable during a break up, feels like a annoying cash grab.
This app is amazing! 5/5
I have found Mend to be incredibly helpful--it really does a great job of bringing attention to all the aspects of breaking up...it focuses on the end of the relationship and your ex but also on you as an individual, what you can learn and where you want to go. Recommend!
I love this app 5/5
This app is amazing I'm going through a lot and this is nice to hear someone talk to you everyday and help you get through it .. thank you for making this app 😌
Can't change progress 3/5
I broke up with my boyfriend and started using Mend. But then we had a point of contact. There isn't a way to update the last point of contact besides the initial signing up process. Also, we got back together and broke up again. I'm not able to start fresh with Mend, as it only carries the data from the first initial breakup. That is the only reason I stopped using it, because I can't update new data into it when life happens.
Great app!! 4/5
This app really help me through my breakup. I really enjoyed the recommended for you articles! They kept my mind busy so I wouldn't thinking about my ex. I didn't have money to subscribe but the app was still very helpful.
Perfect for anyone! 4/5
I'm actually like this :) very helpful and useful! Thankkkkkkk you!
Helpful app 5/5
It was very heartwarming to see an app that helps you get through a break up one of the most difficult phases of life.
This project is important 5/5
Can't express how impressed I am with the first app I saw since a breakup. This can help you. Check it out!
Good at first 2/5
This app was great for me the first month. Liked the soothing voices, advice and encouragement. Everything after that though has been shotty. It says I've completed the training for the day when I haven't even logged in for two days, it just doesn't work anymore. Very disappointing.
So far so good 4/5
By Pandy b
There is a lot of complaints about the money in other people's reviews. I have a few thoughts on the 1. It's a lot cheaper then therapy and it's actually very helpful stuff. Even if it's just reminders they are helpful. 2. The pop ups for money do come up too often. I've already subscribed and I'm still getting an email about paying money and subscribing. The pop up on the app comes up too often and they should offer a free program and then the upgraded program too. And they should find a way to be more discrete in asking for you to subscribe.
Next is the program and content. I like it. It's helpful. $10 isn't going to kill me and I appreciate the app. I get 3 reminders a day but once I've heard the message of the day and written my journal there is nothing new when the reminders go off. I wish there was. Another message or a link to take you somewhere. Even just a little reminder to stick it though and remember I'm awesome would be great.
I feel like there is a lot of potential here and in another few updates there could be there.
For now I really do like it. Best breakup app I've seen.
This app clearly only wants your money 1/5
It doesn't care about you no matter how they word it that they do. They only want a subscription and to get you so desperate for help that you're dropping money all over them. The app was such a great idea in theory - I wanted to love it... but I'm not interested in paying for something that's not actually helping and just spewing a bunch of generated crap for just anybody and then requiring your money while you're already in pain in your life. Angry af at Mend.
