DID App for Dissociative Identity Disorder Systems

DID App for Dissociative Identity Disorder Systems

Multiplied By One App

DID App in Development By A Team Of Volunteers

Multiplied By One DID app is currently in production by volunteer developers and will be a Progressive Web App for assisting communication in Dissociative Identity Disorder systems.

For those unaware, DID is what used to be known as Multiple Personality Disorder, or Split Personalities. To learn more about what DID or OSDD are, see our page on What is Dissociation.

I’m Melissa; the creator of Multiplied By One. I was looking for apps for my system that did at least one of the features that this one will, but when searching, there were no apps for DID systems.

Multiplied By One app will be free for use and without ads.

More About The App

More About The App

The Basics

Multiplied By One will be a Progressive Web App (or PWA). The interface for the Headmate Meeting Space, as well as The Eye Accounts with The Journals and The EyeBox are mostly developed.

In order to release the Beta version, the Minimum Viable Product, (Or MVP) needs to include the System Map, which is partially underway.

This app for DID systems will be available to download in the App Store and Google Play as a mobile-first release. Later, the interface will be wrapped in a desktop standard display for downloading to Mac and PC.

Tools and Languages

The app is being built with Create React App, Material UI, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and the components are fleshed out in "Storybook for React" program for visualizing the interface.

Rather than the original plan to use AWS with a full-fledged web app and backend code, we are using Google FireBase.

If you join the dev Discord Server to assist with coding, there are instructions on how to get a start, as well as access to the full PDF mockup with user stories.

Frequently Asked Questions

Multiplied By One App

What is the purpose of Multiplied By One App?

The goal is to give DID or OSDD systems a place to communicate with their own “Headmates.” This allows assistance for a system to get to know themselves. The hope is that, for those seeking functional multiplicity, it can aid in their acquiring that connection or goal. For those who wish to integrate, this could also be a tool for them to break down barriers. Another purpose is to aid the connection with a system and their therapist or treatment team with the use of the Treatment Hub. Often, a therapist will request a System Map, or, they may want to know what kind of communication that a system has attained with themselves. With the option to share chosen information to the HUB, and then to a Trusted Person, then this connection can be facilitated.

Will my data be secure?

Two-factor Authentication will be available to all accounts. The way that your data will be able to be stored or accessed will be under high restriction. This privacy is being carefully planned and will be set in place before the app goes live. The specifics will be detailed in the Terms of Service that can be reviewed when the option to create your account is made available with the app going live.

Can I delete my data if I choose to?

Yes. You can delete your data. Account passwords will need to be input in order to authorize deletion. Prior to deleting, you will have the option to download your data for your own records.

Who can create an account?

There is no restriction. The app is free to use. The purpose is for those who are systems, or for a Trusted Person to connect with a system. Anyone can create one.

Will the app be available to the visually impaired?

Yes. This accessibility feature will be put in place. It has been brought up with the development team and will be made available with inclusivity in mind.

Is there a limit to how many "The Eye" account spaces can be added to an account?

There’s no limit to how many Eye spaces can be made, except in that each Eye space first needs the associated name on the System Map, which is where the source of the connecting web for the “Headmates” names are. Only one Eye account can be created per System Map profile, so that there’s no confusion between Headmate identities. This allows the unity of who is who to be throughout all features. There is no limit to the number of System Map profiles, but each name provided to a profile needs to be different from other names by at least one character. That’s so the program can know who is who, for messaging purposes.

How is the app able to be free to use and without ads?

In a way, it isn’t free. It’s free for those who make accounts and use the app, but there is a fee to maintaining it. That fee will not be charged to those signing up for the app, but the responsibility will fall on the creator of the app, whom is determined to keep it free for use and without ads. The option to donate exists and is appreciated, but this is not a requirement.

How can we contribute?

There is no obligation to contribute, but if you are able, it is certainly appreciated. There are a few ways to do so. If you are a developer with a bit of free-time to volunteer, there may be some upkeep to the app that you can assist with after is goes live. We have a great team currently, but some might not be able to stay to the end of the creation of the app, so if there are other developers looking to volunteer, they are welcome. If you have the means, and if you so choose, you can donate towards keeping Multiplied By One online and available to the public for free, and without ads. The concept creator and project manager of the app will be ensuring that the funds that aren’t covered by donations will be covered with her own. Melissa works part-time for a non-profit, so help is appreciated. Donations will be able to be made through the organizations donation software on this website.
