I wake up w panic attacks every day and have a very annoying anxiety disorder . This app isn’t a substitute for therapists or friends or medication , and it even claims it isn’t that , but it can feel a bit like being thrown a raft when you’re drowning . It can help steer your mind from careening to back under your own control . It could be that little change u need to start snapping u out of the attack . It gives u a change of gears and it’s Free . Thanks , dev , I love u
Two concrits : the swipe back gesture doesn’t work when you’re in the middle of some exercises - a button may be better and wouldn’t clog the minimalist UI . And also , the pause after the “exhale” in guided breathing is like a second too long - the next inhale should start like immediately and it’s easy to fall outta sync
Anyway thank u for this app , I owe u my life
A therapist’s review
I downloaded this app after reading about it on healthline; I wanted to see if it would be helpful for some of my clients who suffer from anxiety and depression.
I love the “panic alert” component—brilliant! If you’re having a panic attack you simply access the panic alert and hand the phone to whomever you’re with and it talks them through helping you.
It is a simple design and very well done. I have already shared it with several people and will continue to do so.
I did not have any issues with swiping back and forth that has been mentioned by previous reviewers. Also, I thought the breathing app was well timed. It may seem that the pause is too long when you’re having a panic attack but working your way back to that breathing pace is ideal.
Great to Have When You Need It
This app really helped me today. The first time I looked at it, I thought I wouldn’t use it. But when I needed it, it was there so I figured what the hell. The tool was simple but for me it prompted me to write out what I was feeling which helped me see the root of it.
I think a few things could use work. For example when I was answering the prompt question, it didn’t auto scroll up so I couldn't see what I was typing. But I think it will continue to get better and better and I’m really appreciative that this app exists now.
I do hope, regardless of how it grows, that the elegant simplicity of the app remains. There’s something very calming and introspective about the design that I think adds to the overall positive effect.
Long story short, great app lol.
