Here is a great CBT Mobile app for you. Woebot was designed by psychologists working at Stanford for more than 10 years. The founders of two psychologists: Alison Darcy and Athena Robinson.
When Alison and Athena worked as clinical psychologists, their greatest goal was to reach all the people around the world. So they started to work for Woebot and this application appeared.

I saw that WoeBot was very useful when I used it. At least you can control yourself every day.
But I also have criticism.
There are not too many details, the issues are a bit superficial and simple.
Other user reviews:
Yeah it’s mostly for healthy optimistic/non-depressed people and it’s very superficial and repetitive. Very limited.
I am studying in Florida about Dialectic Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I’m doing research on Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET), Cognitive psychology, Metacognitive Therapy.
