The Mindfulness App is aimed to help users increase mindfulness and improve life satisfaction through guided meditation. The app begins with five days of introductory guided meditations. The user can create a personalized “Timed Session”, choosing length of session, guided by voice, and type of background sound. The “My profile” feature provides an overview of weekly meditation practices, providing data on total and average time meditating, numbers of sessions and number of courses. Other features include setting reminders to meditate based on the time of the week or current location. The app is free, but users can pay to upgrade to “Premium”, which offers specialized guided meditations, courses, and challenges for purchase to target a specific symptom (i.e., sleep quality, stress, etc).
