Focused Elegant Inexpensive

This is a good app. Its web page doesn’t do it justice.

If you want reminders, inspirational quotes, expert teachers, celebrities reading bedtime stories, or a community, then this app isn’t for you.

This is an elegantly crafted app that offers four breathing patterns whose breath per minute rate and session duration - up to 1 hour - can be adjusted. There are options for voice, music or other sounds. You swipe between 3 screens: an activity monitor, settings, and the minimalist breathing space where there are no buttons; you simply tap to start or pause and long tap to end a session. At the end of your first session a popup will request access to the Health app to sync your session’s mindfulness minutes.

I’ve been looking for ages for an uncluttered well designed breathing/meditation app that syncs to Apple’s Health app and doesn’t need a monthly subscription and doesn’t have ads. I can’t remember how many similar apps I’ve tried and deleted. I wasn’t sure about this as the information on the app store and its web page is fairly basic and the developer is not contactable to ask questions but it costs less than a cup of coffee so I took a risk. Very happy I did. Breathing Zone is my new app for daily controlled breathing and meditation sessions.

If I can suggest any improvements, it would be to add options for breath pauses to the breathing patterns. And please keep the app’s simplicity.

This app with it's beautiful visual effect and clear instructions is a great aid in settling down an overactive sympathetic nervous system - much gratitude- thank you

Very unhappy with updated version

Utterly disappointed when I updated this app. It was brilliant before, easy to use, liked the celestial choir and the sound of surf which rolled out making it sound as if you take a walk on the beach. It was a regular thing I introduced to my clients and recommended getting it. New version does not have the celestial choir sound any more, the water/surf sound is harshly cut off which jerks, and the settings are quite complicated to use. I wished I had never updated it and kept the previous version. Can you please add the missing sound again and adjust the surf sound so that it is relaxing again to use it. Thanks.

Hmmm, nobody seems to have responded.
