Say Thanks everyday with Azasu
Azasu is the Japanese word for "Thanks", and we have taken a literal approach to our app as it offers a way for you to say thanks to things you have on every given day.
Azasu is an app that allows you to write a sentence of gratitude to yourself every day, reminding you to be thankful of everything you have. This encourages you to be thankful for all the positive things you have.

Benefits of Azasu
Expressing "Thanks" on a daily basis has been proven to boost optimism, positive energy, and mental wellbeing and even enables you to be helpful to those around you. This positive habit is also contagious and if practiced daily, will eventually rub off those around you.

A sentence a day
Running the rat race makes day to day seem like a blur. We often forget what it means to be human and often ignore all the great things in our lives. Our goal is to make it easy for you to keep a memoir of things you are grateful for every day. All it takes is a single sentence a day to remind you about the things that matters most.

Revisit your memories
Our beautifully designed app allows you to quickly scan through your previous daily entries to relive your favourite moments.

Keep it private
Your memories should be kept private and away from prying eyes, because of this, we have designed the app with security in mind keeping all your most precious moments securely stored.

Features
- Simple & elegantly designed
- A single entry for each day keeping on your most precious memory
- Ability to add a photo to each entry
- All entries kept only on your phone boosting privacy
- Set a password to protect from prying eyes
- Anti-social media built in preventing you from sharing your precious memories
- Quickly and easily view your past entries without simple entry feeds
- Built in smart search function so that you can quickly locate an old memory
- Calendar entry system so that you back date an entry or find entries by date
