About this app

Breathe is an app designed to help you ‘watch your breath’. For centuries, deep breathing has been an integral part of meditation practices. It has more recently been adopted by everyone from world class athletes to the U.S. army. Studies have shown that with regular practice meditation can reduce anxiety, stress, and depression. Cognitive benefits include improved focus, memory and decision making. The phrase ‘watch your breath’ is common among meditation practitioners, and is actualised in Breathe: there are animations to signal your inhales and exhales, and you have tools to customize the length of each breath. Intentionally breathing in and out can be a powerful, calming, and joyful experience.

Breathe is offered free, with no ads and no hidden features.

Android permissions requested are to enhance the app during usage (prevent device from sleeping) and to provide anonymous usage reporting (network permissions for Google's Firebase library) to steer further development.

Excellent! Simple, straightforward controls that allow you to control, and CHANGE ON THE FLY, inhale/hold/exhale/hold duration. The UI controls are also simple and give you options for whether to keep the screen on or off, what color the background should be, and what sound you want to use. The sound choices vary on whether there is a continuous sound, or just during inhale/exhale, or changing tones for each segment, etc.. Recommend!

I like the simplicity of this app. It's only sliders to set your desired breathing patten. No classes, no woo, just breathing. I don't like the graph. It's very distracting. I appreciate that the dev is trying to do something different, but I would love an option to toggle the graph to the more standard circle that grows and shrinks with the pattern. As others have mentioned, a start/stop button would also be nice.

This looks like a good app. An additional feature worth adding in, is the option to keep the 4:7:8 ratio the same, but speed it up. Dr. Weil mentions online that starting out, some people wont be able to breathe that slowly, and will need to work up to it. So maybe you could add in a slider to allow users to speed it up?
