ThinkUp is a multimedia, positive affirmation app. Upon first opening ThinkUp, users are prompted to choose or compose 5-10 positive affirmations. There is a library of pre-written affirmations for a wide array of life experiences (e.g. career changes, anxiety, self-confidence, collaboration, entrepreneurship, and others). ThinkUp then invites users to record themselves reading their selected affirmations. After recording at least 5 affirmations, users can click the “Listen” tab to play back their affirmations with soft background music.
