Feel Stress free is an app aimed to improve your happiness and overall wellbeing. When the user first logs in, there is a friendly buddy to guide you around the app. The home page shows an ocean scene animation with three islands to move between, each with themes of meditation, zen garden, and mood manager. The meditation island teaches relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation and deep muscle relaxation. Zen garden allows the user to create their own peaceful escape to visit as a distraction tool. Mood manager includes a mood meter for tracking mood and activities for retraining negative thoughts. Content is added to the wellbeing section of the island based off your anxiety and depressive symptoms. This app provides a 3-day trial, but a subscription is required.

Research on this App

This app was investigated in an RCT as a control treatment for comparison with an Agoraphobia app. 149 participants who self-identified as having agoraphobia participated in the 12-week study. Results showed that agoraphobic and panic symptoms reduced for participants who received both Agoraphobia Free and the Stress Free app, and reductions were equivalent across the two groups.

Thrive completed a study in May 2017 evaluating this app’s impact on anxiety and depressive symptoms, however the paper is currently under peer review and has not been published.
