Good app with potential to be great This app isn't user friendly at first, and reading the instructions is key (which is contrary to the way in which most apps work these days). Once you get it, the flexibility is great. What would be most appreciated is to be able to save profiles. For example, in the mornings, I want to be relaxed but energized, so 6 cycles per minute is good. But in later in the day, I'm at 4.5 cycles per minute to chill out. I'd like to save the settings, along with sounds and colours, instead of calibrating each time.
Review Sometimes the timer is difficult to adjust. Instead of minutes I get hours. It may be that adding maintain and retain breath might also help and still maintain cardiac coherence. Do I get updates? It would be neat if there was a icon to click to direct me to sites so to read on on going cardiac coherence research.
My doctor recommended I work on my breathing to help alleviate stress and anxiety. I especially like the you can change the tone to something you find most pleasant (another app I tried only beeped which was kind of jarring when trying to chill.) Also, love the ability to fine tune the timing, etc.
More & Better Options I really like having all of the options for color, sound, rate, and ratio that are available. It was worth the small price of the premium app to be able to use to guide my breathing exercises, as I do them specifically to increase my heart-rate variability to help with my PTSD and anxiety. It's very helpful!
Not flexible at all I bought the full version to be able to manage my breathing e excuses as ik wished, as the advertisement let think. Well quite frankly I don't see much difference between the free and full version. A waste of money really
User friendly and nice features This is a great app and is so user friendly. You can adjust the speed of the breath and even vary the speed of the exhalation versus the inhalation. You get choices of colors which correlate to the Chakra colors and the sounds or no sound at all. You can adjust the time to one minute or thirty or more. Very usable app.
