Crash, boom, bang - Now working again!
Loved it before, now won't work, skipping. Please, please fix.
Reloaded this app ,so far working beautifully. This is a wonderful breathing app, one of the best in the App Store. With this app you have total control of inhale, exhale, breath retention, along with beautiful graphics, this app is a real pleasure to use. Please I'm your biggest fan, keep this app operative.
Customizing breath settings shines
What I like about this app is that you can set the inhalation, pause and exhalation to what you want. Also the practice time up to 30 minutes. What I would like to see changed is that they use a human voice and not a robotic one. The robotic one sounds a little angry when the goal is relaxation. Also to change the phrase "pause" to "hold" because you're really holding the breathe between inhale and exhale. After exhaling that's a pause. Aside from that this app works for me.
I use this app because of the voice-cue for each breath followed by silence. Other apps have constant noise. Also there is timing versatility. Also you can put the screen into power save mode so you don't have to look at the rather pathetic moving graphic. But you are meditating right? So let it go.
I wish the developer would add a bell or something to signal the end of the session. At the moment, the voice just stops.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
