Helped me start meditation

I like the simple settings, the sounds are pleasant, I continue to come back to this app after trying guide meditation apps. For me the voice instructions often take me out of the goal of calming the mind. I also like the ability to vary the length of breaths and time to meditate. Glad it records to Apple health.

Have tried all, this is best.

Other box breathing apps give you a couple of variables to alter. But this one is so unfathomably customizable that you can not only create the exact lengths & durations, but also choose a different haptic and or sound for EACH of the 4-part breaths to begin! Sheesh!

Great app

And responsive developer. But wait and hold need stronger tap so you can actually feel the change as currently the double taps are just too subtle.
Update: Dev said he would work on trying to improve the taps. Can t ask for more than that.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback!
Request noted, will look into improving haptics for hold and wait phases.
