Breathe Sync - App Review



How many times have you heard that 'stress is a killer'.

This App aims to reduce stress by getting your breathing and heart in sync.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
You start off by entering some basic information about yourself (age) and for how long, and at what time you want to be reminded of the exercise.

The instructions are very straightforward: 'Gently place your index finger over the camera lens and flash', and you will also need to allow the App access to your camera.

You then need to concentrate on the circles displayed on the screen, breathing in as they increase in size, and exhaling when they diminish.

The App will display your WQ (Well-being Quotient). The publisher gives guidelines as to where you should be and how to improve (over 100 is where you want to aim).

You can track this information and hope to improve.

Cost
The App costs $5.

Indispensability
By nature, I am very sceptical but, this App seems very useful.

Dependability
The App works better without a cover on the iPhone (particularly a thick one). Finger placement seems to be fairly critical with the clue being: if there's no music, it's wrong.

Security
This is a standalone App so, no issues there. Be careful not to get too relaxed when you're breathing and drop your iPhone.

ACIDS Test Rating:

I'm hooked!
