“One man’s 7-year battle with cancer yielded gratitude, a ‘thankful app’ despite the hardships”
– Deseret News, November 25, 2013
The story behind “Thankful” is a very personal one for our family and friends. We created “Thankful” with our brother before his 7-year cancer battle ended. During his battle, he and his family wanted everyone to remember to be thankful for what is still good in the world, and to count all of the blessings we all have.
“Everybody has trials. Everybody has tragedies,” his wife says. “That’s why we come to this earth, and we came to a place where we realized we weren’t being picked on, that this was just the deal. …And so we found something that worked for us, and that was to count our blessings and to notice what was good. …It helped us be able to enjoy each other instead of being weighed down by all the fear, it helped lift us up.”
We hope that “Thankful” reminds you to be #thankful, and also helps you to remember all of the many blessings in your life – no matter how seemingly small.
+ We are always #thankful for our brother and our family, and we are absolutely #thankful for you!

the app doesn’t work anymore. What’s up?
Are you by chance using an iPad? If so, please close the app (in iOS 7, double-tap the Home button, slide thankful up to close it), rotate the iPad to Portrait mode (Home button on top or bottom), and start thankful again. From then on, it should be fine. There is an update that was submitted to Apple last week to fix this. If you are using in iPhone or iPod, what iOS version are you using?
The latest update (version 2.3) should fix all issues…in the entire world. 🙂
Thanks for a great app – any chance we will be able to export our lists in the future?
In summary, yes!
We, at Eddy Street Productions, care a lot about keeping your information safe and giving you the ability to share it or store it safely anywhere you’d like. The ability to export the “i’m thankful for” list is one of our next highly requested features, so we plan to deliver it in one of our upcoming updates. Thank you for your feedback!
We are #thankful for you!
Version 2.6 is coming (it was just submitted to the Apple App Store). This update will have the ability to export your list! Yay!
