OCD Understood is for people experiencing OCD. Users play a game in which text of negative thoughts linger on the screen and users are tasked with swiping them off screen, at increasing speed. The app relates the texts coming on the screen to obsessions and the action of swiping them off-screen as of trying to appease the obsessions with compulsions. The app also contains information on OCD and external resources.
