Saving our marriage 5/5
We have tried so many things to recover from addiction and infidelity. This app is so seamless and approachable. From the very beginning it got us talking in a way we haven’t in a decade. I really appreciate how the prompts let you fill in and then send to your partner. I am a busy mom who wanted things to work but was too busy and financially strained to go to a therapist enough to make a true change. I cannot thank the developers of this app enough. You have enabled us to keep our family together.
Dissatisfied with the format 5/5
I found that the app was not able to truly provide my marriage with support from the struggles it has incurred
Sometimes it doesn't save 4/5
I like the app but alot of times it doesnt save my answers and I have to redo the exercise.
Kind of annoying when I'm pouring my heart into the answers the first time.
My wife his the same issues.
I like it so far
LMFT APPROVED! 5/5
Make sure you read the fine print for the free trial. 5/5
A Lasting representative contacted me with detailed instructions on how to get my money back. I am extremely thankful for and impressed with the quality of customer support!!!
Curiously downloaded this app after reading about it on a parenting website. After opening decided it wasn’t for me and didn’t open anymore after that. Woke up this morning to an $87 subscription that was billed to my account. Apple won’t do anything about it so now I’ve paid a ton of money on something I’ll never use. We aren’t the kind of family that has an extra $87 lying around to spend. Needless to say I’m P.O’d.
Had it been a small fee for a monthly subscription I might have shrugged it off and just canceled after the one time charge. However it charged me for an entire year. I’m sick over it. Beware.
I hate apps like this that claim to be FREE but there is really nothing to do but sign up for a paid membership. Free 7 day trial . . . Big deal! LAME!

Tryouts are in the making guess we have to wait and see what happens
Updated Review - Can’t Log In 5/5
After having trouble logging in, I was contacted immediately and the problem was resolved in one day. Great customer service and looking forward to using the app!
Not available in Iceland 1/5
By Conor Niggregor
Not available for my girlfriend in Iceland. Totally unacceptable. Shame on you.
So Helpful 5/5
This app has truly been amazing. So many of us go through relationships not knowing what they’re truly supposed to look like, myself included, and this app really gave me a basis from which to go off of. It asks you to reflect on yourself and your marriage in a judgment-free and accepting way. My marriage has definitely benefited from this app. It’s worth it.
Free Trial Will Result In $79.99 Purchase 4/5
Update: I was able to call Apple and resolve the situation to receive my money back. I also received an email first thing Monday morning from someone at the company to help rectify the situation. I certainly should have read the fine print to see that this charge may have resulted when downloading the app, but this issue probably would happen to most people.
Original: I recently looked into this app for additional help for my marriage. I apparently signed up for a free trial when downloading the app. Today I was notified that I paid $79.99 plus tax as an “automatic renewal” on my account. A $79.99 purchase for something I did not intend to purchase is REALLY NOT HELPFUL FOR A MARRIAGE and is not a great business model for an app intended to HELP marriages. Please be aware that you may be making a $79.99 purchase days after downloading this app.
I am currently looking to receive my money back. Until that time, 0 stars for my current satisfaction, which is a shame because this app may be very helpful
Amazing App!!! 5/5
I can’t say enough about this app!!! It’s truly amazing!!!!
Loving this app so far. Hope it helps save our marriage.
They might as well just charge to download. There’s no point in downloading the free version lol you can’t do anything without an ‘upgrade now to access.’ I find this so annoying and deceptive with apps. Like okay let’s waste peoples time.
Literally asked for a review before we ever started 1/5
The app may be great. We don’t know. I downloaded it and opened it to send an invite to my wife. And it asked me to rate my experience ... well so far all it’s done is ask for a subscription payment and a rating. Don’t do that. People don’t like apps that do that.
All About The Money Baby 1/5
Lured in by the allure of free.
Silly me... I actually thought the purpose of this app was going to help us serve our greater purposes simply for the greater good of all that is. NOT... Can’t even try the app without handing over means of payment.
HOW am I supposed to trust the advice within when I’ve already been deceived before entering???
It’s all about the money baby.
Deleting and moving on.
Meh app 1/5
Expensive for what it is and what it offers, not worth the $.
Notifications don’t work 1/5
Notifications don’t work and are inconsistent. Very good content, very buggy app.
Very encouraging 5/5
By Happy Momma 08
I might be the one who needs to change the most in our relationship, so this is really hard for me, but the app doesn't place blame and is really encouraging. I have to listen to some sessions twice just because the topic is so tender my heart races too loudly for me to focus.
There's already a positive difference in our relationship since starting to use the app, and I have hope that we'll be able to heal and rebuild by following the app's system.
Going from the brink of divorce to hope for the future, so I'm very very thankful for this app.
Amazing app 5/5
Lasting is packed with research from therapists to make the experience feel so rich. I learned so much about myself and my relationship and feel like I’ve gained incredible knowledge for an amazing price. I love that one subscription is good for me and my partner, so we can compare our answers and have great conversations about what we’ve learned. If you’re considering couples counseling, check out Lasting!
Marriage is no longer a mystery 5/5
My parents got divorced, so I didn’t quite know what makes up a healthy marriage. With Lasting, we’re given the tools to connect more deeply with each other in both the “big” and “small” moments. When we come up against obstacles, we aren’t afraid. Lasting helps us dig into the “why” behind our feelings and effectively communicate that with each other so we feel safe and understood. I am excited for our future, because I know we can tackle it all confidently, together.
Could not log in with Facebook or create account from email 1/5
Error occurred please try again in a few minutes I did and nothing over and over
Won’t work 1/5
By emily lujan
It won’t let me create an account
Good but got a random $80 charge 1/5
Good advise. However, signed up for the free trial but ended up getting charged $80 for some random subscription
Too expensive 1/5
TICKED OFF 1/5
This app is a NIGHTMARE to cancel if your payment method needs updating. Essentially you are put in a catch 22 to where you cannot remove the app or cancel the subscription without updating the payment method. I ended up updating the payment method only to be charged immediately for yet another month that I did not want and I still have yet to find a way to cancel this subscription and get it out of my freaking life!!!! I have failed at my attempts in troubleshooting the issue with Apple they have an option for you to report a problem you elect the problem on the drop-down end it basically tells you to go back to the vendor it is no help whatsoever. During the course of trying to resolve my issue and cancel the subscription there was a request for the order number which is found in the confirmation email- I continue to get a message saying that the order number is not valid I tried a number of times and even used the document number just in case it was that rather than the one labeled order number. At this point I feel I am being held hostage with no way to cancel this app furthermore I cannot remove the payment method without replacing it With another valid one because the subscription is still active It will not allow me to remove. So I cannot delete the app or cancel The subscription because there is no option to do so under manage subscriptions. Understanding that if there is no option to cancel the subscription the expiration date noted is when the subscription Will end on its own but considering they just charged for another month I have a suspicion this may happen yet again!!! I’ve never had this much trouble with any other app ever!!!
This is a must have for your marriage - whether you've been married 4 weeks or 4 decades 5/5
I love this app and have really enjoyed using it with my husband. We are newlyweds and it is helpful in keeping the health of our marriage top of mind without the unneeded formality of a couple's therapist. As newlyweds, we don't have any major problems, but you have to water your garden for it to grow or whatever the saying is -- this app does just that! I feel confident that it will keep any small issues from becoming larger ones down the road.
Great at home counseling no need for a counselor! 5/5
If you are seriously dating and looking to get married get this beforehand!! I love this! We are buying the monthly subscription because the first session we had was so great and helped us! I rarely write reviews, but now I pay more attention to my husbands emotional callbacks. This app is fabulous, my husband doesn’t have to be embarrassed about talking silly in front a counselor like he does in the exercises, completely candid and goofy and personal. As opposed to a counselor who wouldn’t understand our jokes. We have weekly sessions.
Made me open my eyes... 5/5
Right off the bat , I realized so much just from the free trial & im loving it & it helped my marriage be so much smoother ! My husband & I are happy and getting stronger ❤️
Best medicine is preventative medicine 5/5
By Sea Baits
Keep a good dose of this going and your marriage will benefit. When challenges come, they’ll be more bearable because you’ve built up some strength with the weight from the truths and exercises.
How are you supposed to tell me what’s wrong with me just by choosing multiple choice answers. So pointless. Waste of time.
Do not download 1/5
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP FOR THE FREE TRIAL! I curiously downloaded the trial version of this application. Upon first glance the app seemed too complicated and preferential of heteronormative relationships, which isn’t acceptable for me. I never opened it after the first day. By day 7 of the app taking up space on my phone, I received a $11.99 bill! Seriously, this will cost you a RIDICULOUS amount of money if you don’t remove it on time. I didn’t complain initially, I just removed the app. Little did I know, Lasting was CONTINUING TO CHARGE ME INSIDIOUSLY when I didn’t even have the app on my phone WITHOUT MY CONSENT! If I remove an app, that should be the end of it. There should be no sneaky means of charging a consumer who I’m certain they can very well tell had never been active on the service, nor owns any means to using it. What’s more... $11.99 for a monthly subscription to this is INSANE and bogus. Seek real therapeutic help... this doesn’t compare.
Really helpful app! 5/5
I really love this app! We were having some communication challenges and tried this app and already I feel like we are learning about each other, growing, and communicating. I feel so happy and optimistic, and it’s fun and reflective too! I highly recommend this app even though it is scary to start talking about hard things!
By Jan and Ms Kaya
Want to stop Lasting due to refusal of partner to participate
Amazing App!!! 5/5
This is a very cool app. It was pretty awkward sharing our answers together but it was absolutely WORTH IT!!!!
My recommendation: if you use this app- be as honest and open as possible even if you are afraid of what your partner will think or say.
By burst a bubble
Interface is clunky and seeing each others answers is difficult to figure out. I like the concept but the accessibility and lesson plans are not too easy to get on with.
Just what we needed! 5/5
By christine s. p.
My husband and I just started using this app and already our communication is improving. It’s hard for us to get out to couples counseling with two kids, so this is the ideal scenario for us. Highly recommend any couple struggling to try it!
We don’t fight and we’re best friends so why in the world would we even need this?!
Guess what!?! We did and we do!! This app has opened both of our minds to things we’ve never thought to work on and communicate about. It’s great for not only working through issues you might have, but also to make you even stronger in the areas of your marriage that are going well. The subscription is worth every penny and highly suggested!
This app is saving our marriage! 5/5
My husband and I are still newlyweds, but have had a difficult first eight months. We started this app two days ago and already feel like our marriage is getting better. We separated and even contemplated divorce and this app definitely has changed our minds and made us closer and more understanding as well. Much better option for those who are apprehensive about sitting with a stranger.
Sick of “free” apps that aren’t free 1/5
Nothing irritates the living daylights out of me more then apps that say they are free but after you download it and put in your email, it says “do you wanna pay X per month or X per year?”
Counter productive 1/5
The questions and setup of the lessons seem designed to purposely cause conflict, so the app can sell a solution to the problems it causes. If my wife and I had not already had a strong relationship this app could have caused lasting damage to our relationship
Instant Help 5/5
So I had a few week long period where I was scared for my marriage pretty bad. I just knew before long it was gonna end. So I begged my wife to try this and if this didn't work then we’d just hold on as long as we could but who knew how long that would be. Anyways. We tried the initial questionnaire thing on the free trial and I knew right then this app was gonna help. Literally the day after our first trial, we were already talking our problems out, and ensuring that we were aware of eachother’s emotions and that we worked to keep eachother happy. I honestly think this app is as good as any professional, licensed counselor. You just have to really want it to work and both of you have to actually be willing to work for it. I only planned on doing like a 2 sentence review but whatever😂
App charged me even though I was supposed to have a free trial with my partner 1/5
Would be great except my partner gave me a pairing code and get lasting charged me instead of letting me use it. Instead they took the money out of my account
Be warned 1/5
I just downloaded it and it automatically assumed I want the “free trail” which I don’t. And it’s really not easy to cancel!! How do I keep it from charging?
I love this app 5/5
By fadda jake
I am a pastor and recommend this app to every couple I know.
LOVE this app! 5/5
This app is amazing! When I stumbled upon it I was skeptical but interested. I downloaded it and tried out the free trial. We have learnt so much in just the last couple days and love setting aside time to do the exercises so much that I’m considering an annual subscription!! The positive affects on our relationship are very noticeable despite the fact that we were already in good standing. This helps you build a strong foundation with your partner and is even a great tool for those who aren’t struggling in their relationship. I’m very impressed!! I’ve had an Apple account for YEARS and this is the first review I’ve felt inspired to leave. :] Thank you so much for the Lasting app! We will continue to watch our relationship grow and strengthen thanks to this tool. 💕
Love this app! It’s saving my marriage 5/5
We have been struggling a lot, and have been considering marriage counseling but we don’t like having a third party put their two sense in our relationship because they don’t know us like we know each other. This app is amazing! It has exercises that helps us get to know each other on a deeper level. It helps us figure out things together. We work on our own with our answers and at the end it shares my partners answers with me so I can see what exactly she is feeling in comparison to mine. We are only on the third exercise and we have already learned so much. This is truly saving our marriage!! So much better than any marriage counseling could be, because we get to learn and grow together without that third party. Plus we can work on it anywhere, we don’t have to go to appointments or take a big chunk of time out of our day. We can work on the exercises together in the morning and at night and really get a grasp on how to be better to each other. I love this app! I totally recommend it! And it’s $12 for both you and your partner, not per person. Way better than paying an arm and a leg for all of these other counseling apps where all you do is text a counselor. This is actually teaching us how to grow our marriage in a healthy way! I 100% recommend this app! And there’s a week free trial so you can check it out before committing to the monthly $12 membership fee. My advice, if you are struggling in your relationship get this app: it will really bring you and your partner together. We feel so much closer to each other and are learning so much about each other that we never knew before this app.
