Be mindful that we have no evidence for the effectiveness of the app, however at face value it does appear to be a distracting, mindful and calming exercise.

Given that it only takes a few minutes and a face value, it could be a useful tool to use to reduce stress.

User review

I liked...

That I had to be mindful to use it.

I didn't like...

That it told me my finger went too fast.

User review

I liked...

De-stress and relaxation. Time to chill out and may also help people get to sleep. Colour changing, kept me calm with ambient sounds and has a great feeling.

I didn't like...

Not much to it, especially for $3.
