"Beautiful and responsive UI with customizable breathing patterns."

"Excellent app, simple to use. As a psychotherapist I am using it myself and recommending to clients who might benefit."

"I became interested recently in breathwork. This app is a fantastic aid to that work. I only discovered it after weeks of using stopwatches and timers. Great app, thank you!!!!"


• Clean, simple interface allows for uncluttered and calming breathing experience
• Fully customizable inhale, exhale, and (optional) pause durations
• Choose from included programs such as Box Breathing, Relaxing Breathing, Equal Breathing, Measured Breathing, and Triangle Breathing
• Sessions can be free-form (no duration) or timed duration (up to 30 minutes)
• Optional pre-session countdown timer allows for a few moments to "settle in" before your session begins
• Choose from several pacer color themes
• Optional guided vocal cues signal when to inhale, exhale, and hold so breathing can be done without looking at your device
• Vibration mode allows for silent breathing sessions
• Bells can be enabled to signal the beginning and end of your sessions

Included Programs:

Box Breathing (4-4-4-4)
Also known as Navy SEAL or tactical breathing, this is a surprisingly simple and effective way to help regain calm and control of your thoughts when under stress. Inhale for 4, hold for 4, exhale for 4, hold for 4. All through your nose.

Relaxing Breathing (4-7-8)
Have trouble falling asleep? Try this 4-7-8 technique. Inhale for 4 through your nose, hold for 7, exhale for 8 out of your mouth.

Equal Breathing (4-4)
A pranayama practice called Sama Vritti, this breath can help take your mind off the racing thoughts or whatever might be distracting you. Inhale for 4, exhale for 4. All through your nose. (Try a 6 or 8 count, once you feel comfortable.)

Measured Breathing (4-1-7)
A handy stress-reducing practice that can be done anywhere, anytime. Inhale for 4, hold for 1, exhale for 7. All through your nose.

Triangle Breathing (4-4-4)
Another great technique that can help alleviate anxiety or stress. Imagine a triangle with equal sides. Inhale for 4, exhale for 4, pause for 4. Repeat.

We hope Awesome Breathing helps you reach your goals, and look forward to being a part of your journey. We are just getting started, so would love to hear your reviews and feedback!

YeahHereHeyHiThereHuh ,

Love it!

*Update: I recommended this to my therapist after showing all this app offers for anxiety, PTSD, sleep disorders, and numerous other that occurred to me would benefit her clients.
*Update: Very pleased/impressed to see how much devs put in recent update, especially considering how much I already enjoyed this app.

Would it be possible to have some other sound choices for the end of session apart from “bell”? The “voice” would be nice, or a sort of twinkling sound? A volume control for the “bell”, (and any additional tone choices), would offer us the ability to end on just as blissful sound as the individual, or mood may need.

I sure do appreciate this app, thanks so much.

I use this every single day. Mysleep anxiety is improving.

Wow, great to hear! Congratulations and thanks for your support!

Almost perfect

I love the simplicity of the app. The visual is nice except for the second accent color - unnecessary, would love if it were eliminated. Also would prefer to be able to have color options. Honestly grey is best or a muted color in my option, the current electric colors are too stimulating. Options would be ideal. There’s another breathing app i like that is a sphere that gets larger and smaller and it’s all grey scale which I love, but this app has the major benefit of all the other settings including setting specific times for inhales, holds and exhales. Fantastic. If the color could change and the second accent color removed it would be PERFECT

Developer Response ,

We've got some good news - you can now select from several alternative color themes, including a dark/muted theme as you requested! Please let us know what you think and we'd appreciate it if you feel our app is now 5-star worthy!

Works well

Love the app — I’m particularly a fan of the dark muted theme. I’d love to see an Apple Watch companion app that would let me do an exercise from my wrist with haptic feedback for each stage. I’d also love to be able to save a custom program as a preset. Other than that, it’s a fantastic free app that is beautifully simple.
