iPromptU is a free app that can serve as a Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) homework tool. This app is designed to be used with the guidance of a licensed clinical psychologist or mental health professional. The app displays a series of questions that are customizable by the therapist or user (e.g., “what is the strongest emotion or feeling you are experiencing right now?”, “what does that emotion make you feel like doing?”). It then prompts the user to write or dictate their answers. These responses are saved so that the user can email them directly to their therapists. Prompting can be set up to occur immediately, randomly, or at fixed time intervals.
