  • Wonderful app, but would appreciate different voices Dec 5, 2021

    By Evyshapiro
    My therapist recommended this app to me when I was dealing with panic attacks and general anxiety, and it has helped me very much. I love how simple and easy it is to use and customize, without ridiculous in-app purchases or subscriptions. Even if you don’t deal with lots of anxiety, this will help you. Practicing breathing is something everyone should do. My one recommendation for improvement is the option for different voices guiding you through the breathing exercises. I wish I didn’t have to listen to the same voice every time.

    I have anxiety and I've found this app super helpful. I also really appreciate how easy it is to use and all of the customization options. Highly recommend.

    I downloaded this app with the hope it would help me when dealing with anxiety/stress. It helps with breathing. The app makes it so you can speed the breathing up and slow it down as well. There is a voice narrating, telling you when to breathe in and when to breathe out and the number of breathing cycles you have gone through. Very relaxing voice and helps get to sleep as well! Would recommend!! In my Abnormal Psychology class, we learned that deep breathing relaxes, helps to relieve stress, and lower heart rate. You learn to focus on your breathing, making sure you are taking slow, deep breaths.

  • Everyone should have this app Aug 27, 2019

    By Dunksterr
    My assigned PTSD psychologist at the VA recommended me this app. I was very skeptical at first but wow. This app improved my quality of life just with simple breathing techniques. Just follow on screen guidance and audio directions. The app talks to you in a calming tone and takes you step by step through each breath. This app is really awesome but I gave 4 stars instead of five because I wish instead of music one could select a nature soundtrack like jungle sounds or a thunderstorm for example. That would be really neat. But all in all wonderful app, would recommend.

    A well-designed app to help in stress reduction. My initial impression is that I like it. I'll write more if my opinion changes.
  • Fantastic except videos Feb 26, 2018

    By RachelKuhneal
    This app has a simplistic layout, which breaks down the information into easy to understand preset categories. Providing reason and relevance as well as practical guided skills for managing stress through breathing. As a community mental health case manager I will be encouraging my transition age youth clients to use this tool. It will also help me to practice self care in my daily life. My one fault with this app are the missing instructional videos. “Show Me How”, How to Breath, Biology if Breathing, and Effects of Stress on the Body” all have an error stating “No Video by that ID”.

    I got this app to help my 10-year-old deal with anxiety and panic attacks. It turns out that I use it as much as she has. Not only does it help me relax, but repeated sessions help quiet my mind and help me fall asleep. My only complaint if you could call it that – it’s actually a suggestion – is that options for 10 minutes, 15 minutes, and 20 minutes cycles be provided. I would prefer not to have to start the cycle over after every 16 breath session. However, it is amazing what can be accomplished in 16 breaths.
  • Straight forward Apr 27, 2020

    By BryanaBerry
    This is a very straight forward deep breathing application. I liked that the voices in this application weren’t computer like and there were choices for music. It is a bit hard to look at graphically but that’s not something I can’t overlook. THANK YOU for creating an app where I can adjust the breathing time. I have never liked breathing apps because I am always focused on not suffocating myself (Im not sure why but I have always had limited lung capacity) I can actually relax now that I know I’m not “breathing wrong”.
  • Good app Apr 6, 2019

    By Duthie1968
    Would like it to have time option include, ie 5, 10, 15, 20 mins and also the ability to set a timer for notification/reminder. Like all the other features offered, very useful! Recommended to me by the VA biofeedback group for PTSD. 👍🏻

    I tried showing this to some people I think it would help but the set up was so embarrassing (needing a pin and security questions dor example) I will no longer recommend.

    Good once you get into it! Having to use a password for a relaxation ap is annoying though!
  • Great app Jul 15, 2021

    By Breach21
    While this is simple to use, it is very effective at starting and training relaxation skills. It’s at least as effective as many meditation apps and takes considerably less time. I wish it would log time in the Apple Health app. One other small issue is that the link to the Apple Watch is not very reliable.
  • Excellent, Simple, Useful Sep 20, 2016

    By ak1804
    This is a simple to use app that is an excellent tool to assist in breathing exercises. The only thing it doesn't do is breathe for you :)! It might be even a little better if the user could add their own personal background graphics and increase the amount of breathes in each session. Aside from that it is a five star app! Thanks for offering it for free.
  • Small annoying feature choices, not detract from overall usefulness Nov 25, 2016

    By thj4
    I see how current design doesn't need to be outright changed, but it would be nice to have an option for following features: * Manually set time for inhalation and exhalation instead of holding button, * Custom set for number of cycles, * Show cycles as minutes, * Show countdown on amount of time / number of breaths left, * More nature sounds or music options. It's a perfectly fine app, but I want to try for 5 minute sessions and none of the presets are for 2 1/2 min or 5, but I'll definitely make it work for a free app with the breathing metronome.

    Works very well. But needs a cycle that is at least 10 minutes long to be more effective.
  • Never Connects to Apple Watch May 11, 2021

    By trw234
    This is a great app that needs to be updated. I open the app on my series 4 Apple Watch and it always tells me phone not reachable and never says anything else, even while the phone is in my hands searching for the heart rate. So it becomes a bit frustrating with each use but the breathing section works very well to easily change the times for inhaling and exhaling. I would give five stars when the app actually works with my watch.
  • Liked the app. Don’t like the reporting Jul 15, 2018

    By Stock143
    The terms & conditions updated and were very strongly worded. It sounded like if you used this app they were reporting your info to the government. Most T&Cs have some data collection for the developers use, but this seemed so over-the-top that I deleted the app. Not interested in being involved in some science experiment. The app is well designed and worked well so I’m bummed that I had to get rid of it. The interface wasn’t very attractively designed though.
  • Psychologist Jul 14, 2016

    By Shrink wrap 21!
    The advantage of the App is that you can modify the instructions for when to inhale and exhale based on preference. The big downside is that the maximum number of breathing cycles allowed is 16. Even though I breathed very slowly, the program lasted only five minutes. I wanted a program that would guide me for 30 minutes. The app should be improved to allow the user to set the amount of time it lasts.
  • Doesn’t recognize internet connection Mar 30, 2019

    Good exercise but app says no internet connection even though connection is fine. Resetting network connections did not solve problem. I suspect app has problem with current IOS version, 12.1.4
