Panic Pulse makes it easy to track subjective anxiety levels throughout a stressful activity. I found
work to be stressful so my counselor had me write down my anxiety level on a 0-100 scale at 15-minute
intervals. I got tired of setting alarms and carrying paper and pen around, so I made an app to do it
When you first start a session, Panic Pulse prompts you for your current level of anxiety. Then, at
15-minute intervals, you'll get a notification which will prompt you for the peak anxiety over the last
15 minutes as well as your current anxiety. When you're done, just hit the stop button and it will
prompt you for peak and final values one last time. And that's it!
If you (or your counselor, if you have one) want a paper copy of your sessions, you can print reports
right from the app.
Most of the functionality is customizable:
The available interval lengths range from 10 minutes to 2 hours.
The sessions displayed can be filtered to show all sessions, just today's, or several period
lengths in between.
You can print a report of the last week's sessions or all sessions starting at any date that
You can add comments to the beginning and end of your sessions (e.g. I often add a comment that
I'm working from home).
There is a configurable "start of week" setting which is used when filtering sessions or
printing reports. Typically this will be the day after your counseling appointment, so that
printing a one-week report captures all the sessions since your last appointment.
