FourYou: Offline Audio Journal with AI Analytics

FourYou makes audio journaling private, easy and smart, so you can become more self-aware and happier. Reflect on your day with four questions, uncover trends, and take charge of your wellbeing.


I built FourYou for myself as I needed an app that doesn’t get in the way of my daily reflections but supports them. Simply open, tap and talk. Then, the app transcribes and analyses your recordings to help you keep an overview and spot patterns. Best of all, as the questions stay unchanged, they have become a part of my daily life and helped me make better decisions and focus on what really matters.


Your data stays on your device, but can be exported if you want to (even in the free version). No login is required and ads are never shown.


Written journals are great, but tend to be factual. Audio journals on the other hand are more emotional and include narratives. Also, voicing our emotions and experiences is something that we rarely do, despite it helping us reduce negative emotions and building our confidence. It’s a great mindfulness technique.


FourYou uses Whisper to provide high quality transcriptions for 22 languages completely on-device.
