EMDR 101 is your companion into the world of EMDR as a treatment method for various mental disorders.
Whether you’re new to EMDR or a seasoned practitioner, EMDR 101 will still be useful in one way or the other.
EMDR 101 gives you a clear overview of the various phases of an EMDR session (description and goal).
With the “Guided EMDR Session” option you can do an EMDR Session in any place that you want and work through the difficult issues that you struggling with. And whenever you feel overwhelmed with feelings & emotions, you can stop by simply closing the app. And resume when you are ready. You’re always in control.
So find a comfortable and safe place that you know…and start the session.
The “Custom EMDR Session” is for when you know more about EMDR. And it allows you to go straight to the point of desensitization & installation.
The “Dot Only Display” mode is a go-to option for an EMDR therapist. A distraction-free and easy to handle tool that you can use in your sessions.
Just released a new app called PSA, short for Psychological Symptoms Analyzer.
PSA is an application that helps you diagnose a mental disorder in a new way.
You simply have to select the symptoms that are present by dragging them to the selection field.
When you’re done start the Analyzer process.
This will give you some possible mental disorder diagnoses. Tap on them to see the specific criteria requirements for a proper diagnose (based on ICD, DSM). As a quick reference usage of the app, you can tap the library button and search for a mental disorder directly. Tap on the mental disorder to see the specific criteria requirements. Or read more about the disorder by pressing the wiki button.
I wanted to call it a psychological symptom analyzer tool first and shorten it to PSAT, but that a name conflict with the PSAT test. Or the better-known version of the SAT test. Name confusion is one thing but the other thing is maybe taken down notices due to intellectual property rights or something of that matter.
So PSA it is then.
I designed it in the hope that it would make the diagnose process easier by using symptoms tag as the first filter. And after that the specific mental disorder Criteria (set by DSM and ICD) check for a proper diagnose. Or just go straight to the Criteria check by searching for the mental disorder.
BTW I’ve also included the quick Criteria search data into Psych 101, really like how that data function turned out. So why not, it makes the app better.
Now I hope the user will also think this way and rate the app. With the current AppStore ranking system, highly rated apps are treated better. Which equals more downloads. And those downloads translate into certain paper and metal stuff that I can exchange for food & shelter.
With this App I learned more about the local notification system workings in iOS, which is pretty cool. And just as Steve would say: it just works.
With this in mind the whole App is designed for easy use and just one general purpose: showing the days till your birthday. Without the notification and pre iOS 4, way before backgrounding. This App would just only work when you open it. But now it works even when it’s not active. The counter just goes on. Day after day, until your birthday of course. Then it resets. Pretty amazing right. Open the App, enter your birthday and you don’t have to think about it again. Every you see the App icon with the badge number you’ll know the current days count until your birthday.
The design of the App itself is straight forward: a counter which counts the day, hour, minutes and seconds until your birthday. I used clipboard images. The only problem is that I couldn’t get the flip animation working the way I want. So no real flipping effects when the time counter runs. Just changing numbers. Next update then.
Then the biggest part of design is the icon. This is in my opinion the hardest. It should be simple and also clear in its meaning. With no distractions. I first put the whole title in the icon itself. Which made reading it hard, deepening on the font and letter size I picked. And then there is the App Title below the icon itself. Which I couldn’t ignore. I couldn’t delete it….so make use of it. The result I could use bigger letters with fewer words. On the iPhone screen it’s fine and readable. About the birthday cakes that’s hardly visible on an iPhone 3GS or 3G but on an iPhone 4 or 4S with retina display, it’s ok. On the AppStore itself, the cakes are clear and visible. And this way it’s better than just two words in the icon and some empty space above it. This is of course for the number badge icon. On the App icon I also put a small round red template with # in it. So visually let people know something with numbers is going to be here. The “#” sign is the general sign for number right?
So this is it then. Or not have to say something in the line of: oh there is one more thing! When your birthday comes the “Days Till My Birthday” will sing “Happy Birthday” to you. And that’s amazing right?
Description in AppStore:
Days Till My Birthday App keeps track of the number of days till your birthday.
When you open the app you’ll see a counter that keeps track of the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds until your birthday.
On your home screen you’ll see the number of days in the App Badge Icon.

ps. when the days comes this app will even sing “Happy Birthday” to you.
So after long long time the long awaited update. Vitamin 101 is now at version 2.0 (after 10 different other updates, never really changed the interface). What I can say about this version is that it’s more beautiful than ever. Just look at the images below:
As you can see the semi visible second view while the first view is active in photo 3 (like Facebook I guess). The other thing are the picture tiles. It really looks amazing on the iPad. And to be honest the candy & sweet section made my mouth watery.
