While this is a standalone app, it’s also an adjunct to a mindfulness business consulting offering**.
The icon looks rather familiar:
This app is really stripped down and minimalist:
Eight guided meditations and a silence with bells:
Again – very minimalist interface for the actual meditation:
And a tracker (of course) – though extremely bare-bones:
What I liked: The minimalist nature of it – no social, very little tracking.
+ Voice is almost robotic – brings to mind a kind of soothing female Japanese robot.
What I didn’t like: Not that I didn’t like it, but I think this is a little too advanced for me. There’s loads of silence and it is an effort to stay on the breath. The large chunks of silence is probably a good thing, but I am not sure I have the mental discipline for this to work for me – yet.
+ ** Can’t say I’m not too keen on the mindfulness as extracting ever-more productivity from harried employees thing.
Things for next time: Increase efforts to focus!
Rating: 4/5 app | 3/5 meditation (but my experience was 2/5 because I found it hard to stay present)
Now all that remains is for me to decide what I am going to go with!
