Simple mood tracking, no writing required, generates charts to help see mood fluctuations but also activities and correlations. Not sophisticated, but that is also its selling point.

Calm Harm

September 13, 2019 11:25 AM
For dealing with the urge to self-harm. You’re given the option to choose a 5-minute or 15-minute activity to help you surf the urge, and then activity types (eg Comfort, Distract, Express), each of which has tons of options within it. After you rate how it worked, try another one if needed, then input some basic mood/episode tracking. Hotlines included. Based on ideas from DBT. Also logs and tracks each time and what worked.

Insight Timer

My favorite mindfulness meditation app, for its simplicity, and it’s all free. Very popular, three million+ registered users. Most useful for its basic functions: set reminders, use timers, track meditation sessions and keep stats. Some social connectivity as well if you like that sort of thing. Tons of guided meditations as well.
