ConZentrate helps to improve the focus of the mind.Conzentration app makes it
a fun event by setting goals that you can achieve and at the same time allowing you improve your concentration.
The original name for this technique is called as Trataka in Sanskrit.
Patanjali's Yoga Sutras mentions this as "Ekatattva Abhayasa". It means the practise of One reality. Trataka is the
fixing of one's gaze, either externally or internally, on a point of attention. Together with this process,
a breathing exercise may have to be practiced to calm the disturbances in the mind.

Good to start
No sound off option
Moving ball is not worth. Gazing techniques are meant to focus on one point - not moving focus and eyes behind ball.
Good start though!
Nice app that allows me to meditate quickly for a few minutes everyday. I am going to buy the paid version soon to use all the features.
A very nice app for inducing calmness to the mind. Certainly worth trying it out. The paid version has even more features an certainly worth the money.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
