I think that this app is neat as in it offers a 'sleep stories' function. Even some kids' tales are inclusive within the app with reportedly over 10 million downloads. The popular app has comforted many, it seems. The app also allows for personalized options to increase happiness. The 'Building Self-Esteem' Tool is an especially fanciful one. And with new stories added every week, this app is a delightful discovery. Lebron James, Basketball Star, even has a story here.

This app is fabulous in that we can connect to Android Wear so our heart rates and breathing can be monitored. This app sends alerts or notifications about new features as well. People wondering about better breathing patterns should check this app out and download it right away. It's unique to say the least. And it is proof that finding a guided breathing solution and a monitoring tool is vital to helping one to monitor their breathing and manage depression.

I have been cought up on social media and I even forgot about everything else until I came across this app. It helps me to monitor and limit my time spent on social media, and also to create time for myself which reduces chances of depression.

Pros

Very helpful

Everybody needs to meditate once in a while and this app helps you. It's a nice idea to help you clear your head. It's a good app but they need to unlock more things for free so we can get a better idea of how the app works before we think about buying the subscription. Overall it's a good app and the graphics are great.

Pros

Good graphics Useful app

Cons

To many things are locked without paid subscription.

Very interesting app! There's a lot of good stuff in here that can help you relax your mind and body, and help you achieve focus. I really loved the music they have on here, or sounds, because it was very mind relaxing. I also like the meditation advice embedded in the app as well.

Pros

Good music, interesting advice for meditation

Cons

Requires you to provide your debit card in order to do the 7 day trial. I thought we could still do the trial without having to provide that information.

I don't think I have ever been so excited about an app before. I am very organized and sometimes I am so busy running around and crossing everything off my list and I forget to focus, or sit down with my family and even just stop and feel happy. I love this app because it emails you reminders and really sharpens your focus.

Pros

It is very easy to use.

Cons

It froze once while I was using it, but no big deal.

When i first started the app i thought some of the challenges to do were quite funny but i still did them and it really gives a little self boost to do if you are not feeling good about yourself. The way it works with the challenges and rewards is real fun. I'd totally recommend it to people who need a little self boost once in a while

Pros

Fun way of working

Cons

Still things to improve in the layout

I really like this app. It gives me information on how your brain works with depression and fear and stress. The way they do it is very fun they have a sort of chat and it gives you some messages everyday... The first day i got a strip with images explain how the fight, flee, freeze mechanism works. Its fun for a lot of ages to do and it doesn't take a lot of effort or time.

Pros

Nice features

Pros

A lot of great features!

Cons

Sign in subscription.

Just like the name suggests you experience a different kind of calmness when using this app. The music on this app calms me down and it helps me when I have had a bad day. Helps me sleep well and the colors on the app bring a great feeling of happiness when I open the app. It has been a great guide through my meditation.

Pros

Easy to use

Cons
