I liked...

The language and content is very down-to-earth.

I didn't like...

The amount of data and surveys collected had little rationale behind them. There also is very little detail on the app store about what the app does. The layout can be confusing at times too.

User review

I liked...

It has some great features to relax with and the 30-day challenge can be completed at whatever pace you want.

I didn't like...

The app toolbox changes and often won't be the one you are looking to use which can be annoying.

User review

I liked...

I really like the overall style of the app. The 'recalibrate' tool in the app seemed like a very intuitive way of teaching people breathing techniques. Also, having achievements present in the app is a good idea as it keeps people engaged.

I didn't like...

The 30-day challenge interface was a little hard to understand at first. For example it looked as if you had to touch the screen when you actually had to touch the 'next up' button. The app also lags heavily when moving from the setting to home tabs.
