Ratings and Reviews
My best medicine and feels like a friend
I started shine a good while back with the daily messages via fb messenger and more and more I was getting to where I would hit the learn more, read more etc button on the days quote or message it honestly felt it was picked just for me and was just what I needed on that day or for that week. Then when I kept wanting to go further and needed the subscription it was no question of should I pay for this app? Will it be worth it? If I was getting as much out of those dailys then yes and I’ve only had the paid version for about a week but it’s the best medicine and like having a friend that checks on on you at just the right time worth the perfect thing to say or just asking what you are needing help with that day if anything this is because I was stressing pretty bad when I downloaded the app and marked stress as something to focus on you get this app completely personalized to you and what’s going on and each day of there is something dif you need to focus on you just type that in because you get replies back as if you are messaging with a friend I love this I couldn’t have found it at a better time and the meditations the articles are wonderful keep doing what you are doing I’ve never left a review but this was to good to not let people know what you are offering. Thank you! A satisfied customer
Developer Response ,
Hi there! Thanks so much for the Shine love and for being a part of the Shine community. Your kind words mean so much to us at Shine HQ.
I thought I would just Shine a bit brighting, but I’m radiating with gratitude, positivity, and joy. How I heard about it: I was going through some things one week and I shared with a friend that I would like to stop crowd sourcing my decisions. The next day, she sent me a Shine article discussing items to consider when crowd sourcing YOUR decisions. That moment I decided to check out the App and do the a trial. The rest is history.
This App has become part of my morning routine. I wake up, shower and do my daily check-ins before I walk out of my place. It has significantly helped with establishing a positive mindset for my day. I consider myself generally positive and optimistic; with this App by my side I feel more Resilient than I have been in a long time. The content of the articles, meditations and challenges are spot on and not very lengthy. I like having bite size information that I can digest and implement in my day. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs a daily reminder and strategies to maintain a sense of balance in their lives.
Words can’t describe how much I love this app! I love the content, and I love the voice and tone of the motivational speakers on the tracks. There are a few enhancements I would really like to see in the future: 1) An indicator to let me know that I have already listened to a track. That is “Visibility of the system status.” 2) The ability to easily filter tracks by a specific speaker/narrator. That is “User control and freedom.” 3) A way to mark tracks as favorites. In real life, if I like something, I bookmark it or highlight it for the future. That is “Mirror what happens in the real world.” Those are just a few things most users look for in apps like this. These are things we value and these things meet our needs.
You may not be allowing these things because you don’t want users to feel like they have gone through all of the content. No worries on that even if we did. I like the app, and I don’t mind listening to a favorite a few times. Not having the features I mentioned above reminds me of those blog posts that are missing the date, and that is a bad user experience hiding the date. Give us more control over the content by adding those enhancements. If those features are on your roadmap for the future, great! If not, you should definitely put those in your next sprint instead of in the backlog :)
