Need more BPM options The app is probably great for most people. However I think that a big part of your target market like runners, other athletes, experienced meditators, people who have used this app long enough, etc. will want to breathe at a much slower pace. I cannot comfortably take a full breath or even box breathe using the slowest setting. I would give the app 5 stars and use it daily if this issue were corrected. I would like to see 1 BPM as an option or better yet be able to enter a number with my keypad.
Breath duration too long for me In reply, it seems there are exceptions; no one is the same. I would make better use of this app with options for 2 to 4 bpm. 4.5 to 6 bpm feels like race car driving to me for an app that's designed to calm? Using a time stamped counter app, using my most comfortable breath, the start time was 4 bpm. After 5 min, it was 3 bpm.
Great app! A much cheaper solution to an otherwise very expensive software program based on the same principles. Two suggestions for you for improvement.... it would be great to be able to access previous graphs in the history tab rather than just a table of results. I'd like to compare my rhythm from one session to the next to see improvement, such as how long does it take me to settle into coherence. Also, please proofread and edit your text! Great work though, well done. And thank you.
This app has so much potential! Some pointers to make this better: More breath speeds (as suggested by users over a year ago). Update interface and run spell check. I would recommend this product to friends and family but it is embarrassing to recommend something that has spelling errors in the instructions. This might be a compatibility issue with my phone, the gong signaling inhale/exhale only rings for two breaths. Then I must watch the screen for the remainder of the session. Additional options for the audio cue would be appreciated.
Excellent beginning This app uses the phone's camera to do what much more sophisticated systems provide for more than 20 times as much cost. The user interface could definitely be improved, but the core functionality is solid and terrific for anyone who wants a simple, highly portable, accurate way of measuring their heart rate variability. I compared the readings to those from a HeartMath emwave device, and find them to be entirely consistent.
I have incessant migranes, tremors, and other issues. It was suggested that I do neuro biofeedback treatments. Sadly, they were discontinued due to being unable to get access. I discovered the stress eraser for which I paid $139 free shipping and handling. I started using that and my tremors and migranes decreased. My daughter started having issues, so I gave her my stress eraser. I discovered (quite by accident) the Stress Releaser this year. It is far easier to use than the stress eraser. I paid the $4.49, and decided to try it. Each session is 15 minutes. When I take my finger off of the camera lens ... the heart beat goes on for four minutes. But it does eventually 'flat line'. Hence the reason for the 'four' star (and not five star review). As a result of using the Stress Releaser as instructed, I no longer have the tremors in my hands at all. My migranes are gone within four minutes of using the Stress Eraser. It helps with focus, and meditation. But as I just said, it helps with far more (if used correctly). Also, the Stress Releaser (as I said is far cheaper than the Stress Eraser( which btw is no longer being manufactured)).
1)Add history view. Now user is able to view session scores up to one year.
2)Pop up dialog box after session finished instead of back to menu screen.
1)Interface change. The setting now is in menu screen.
2)Add Coherence score for user to know the practice result in percentage.
3)Fixed bug. Now more phones is able to use this App. HuaWei, Lenovo and etc.
1) Fixed code bug for Nexus 5 users.
