The EQuoo app is an innovative way to learn positive coping skills and strategies for better psychological health. The app's graphics are clear and engaging. The interactive learning format using a virtual couple and more detailed stories with other virtual characters was very effective. The concepts and skills were fun to learn and practice. Great app!

I played eQuoo, curious about what I might learn as a former psychology professor and current relationship-science author. This program showed me my biases and how to balance them with reality, assessed my personality in line with other tests I’d taken, and presented games, interactive stories, and numerous examples to help me enhance my emotional intelligence. I think people who use eQuoo will become more adept in all their relationships, more knowledgeable about themselves, and ultimately, more resilient. Well done!

As a therapist, having played EQuoo I was surprised with how much I learned. It made me stop, reflect & consider my answers. I felt pleased & satisfied when my choices were confirmed correct. It described my personality as I believed it to be, which is a positive open-minded person.

Congratulations to Silja Litvin and her team at PsycApps on having developed the ground-breaking mobile therapy app, eQuoo. They’ve succeeded in making the game educational yet compelling through a mix of story-telling, gamification and animation. The app leads users painlessly through evidence-based information drawn from positive psychology, cognitive-behavior therapy, couples therapy, brain research, and other approaches that build resilience, optimism, and hope. Having spent time “playing” the game myself, I think it spearheads a revolution in mental health apps, that will incorporate A.I. and machine learning.

This is persuasive technology used for good. It’s used to engage people with an application that will help them with their mental health issues. eQuoo is very interactive. I love the avatar, Dr Joy, and how it engages you from the very beginning. You’re playing and it’s not beating you over the head with learning. I have a cohort of clients in mind that could use this to bridge appointments to work to keep up with concepts we’re working on.

eQuoo is really an impressive undertaking. Silja Litvin is carving out some brand-new territory. This is ground-breaking work.

EQuoo is an interesting and cost-effective way to learn more about both yourself and psychology so that you can increase your level of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence can be just as important as IQ in our workplace and life success. In a fun way and through games, the app provides feedback on your “Big Five” personality traits, psychological traits that have been tested and validated. If you are interested in self-improvement, psychology, and increasing your emotional intelligence, I recommend the EQuoo App as a helpful purchase.

There are countless benefits to being physically fit. Our bodies are the vehicles we use to move through the world, and, of course, it makes a lot of sense to have our 'vehicles' in the best shape possible. However, as well as physical fitness, emotional fitness is just as crucial to our life satisfaction, if not more so.

eQuoo is FUN. It is also very engaging. I have been using the App for a while and find that it highlights skills that are very helpful in human interactions and help me to manage my mental wellbeing.

eQuoo takes on the tricky task of making mental health something you want to learn about, as opposed to something you have to! By blending the power of story-telling in games and the latest psychological insights, eQuoo defeats stigma with an overwhelming sense of fun.
