Description
The fully-featured version of Optimism is currently free in the Mac App Store (normally US $24.99). Please download the full version for additional functionality.



  • Optimism Lite is mood charting software, that helps you develop strategies to manage depression, bipolar or other physical and mental health conditions.

    It can be customized completely to suit your specific circumstances, making it relevant to any health condition that affects (or is affected by) mood.

    Optimism Lite helps you to:

  • Monitor and develop strategies, specific to yourself, that help you remain in good mental health.

  • Grow in your understanding of "triggers" that affect you, and the early warning signs or symptoms of a decline in mental health.

  • Find concrete starting points for discovering interactions between the factors that affect you. Charts and reports form a feedback loop, which helps you detect these interactions more easily.

    Optimism provides good integration with health providers, with detailed histories that can be reviewed quickly. It is grounded in preventative health and early intervention for better health outcomes.



  • Optimism Lite contains all of the functionality of the full Optimism version, except:

  • the Plan screen, for documenting a strategy for maintaining health and responding to any episodes of illness

  • the Isolate screen, which enables detailed filtering of data for easier discovery of connections between wellness strategies, triggers and symptoms

  • The Sync function, for using the app in conjunction with the Optimism web and iPhone apps.

    Please consider upgrading to the full version of Optimism, to benefit from this additional functionality.
