ConZentrate helps to improve the focus of the mind by allowing you to go deeper into your meditation. 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 result of every goal is to unlock a background or a ball or a background music.
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.

Effective, simple app- could add a few things
A wonderful app for meditation, especially when you are not quite able to sit down and calm your mind yet. Focusing on the slow moving ball gives you an effective way to slowly ramp down the mind's speed while increasing your focus. I use this and then meditate and the combo really works for me. I would suggest the app maker add the ability to make the light bulb and home button on the corner of the screen disappear. They are overly large and bright, and very distracting for an app that is about reducing distractions. Being able to add your own backgrounds would also be a bonus. Otherwise great!
Great peace-of-mind aid
Up date it with......
I really loved this app. It really helped me to sit still an take some much needed time out for myself. Clear my mind and start new. I do propose that you update this app with more colors for the ball, and definitely be able to put your own pictures in for the background! I also would like to report a problem..... The my music does not work :( please try and make these changes ;)
