I can’t get enough of it!!!

I’m super grateful for Shine app because it help me grow every time I am on it which is nearly daily now! That’s my new goal; to check in first thing in the morning! This app teaches about #selfcare, has mantra and affirmations to get the best out of yourself and how to learn to be accepting of things that you used to view entirely differently. It engages me in journaling, too. I gave Shine a rare for me rating of all five stars and would have given it ten for all that it has taught me. Thank you Shine!! I do have some feedback about being able to mark a favorite speaker #SelfCare and not by speaker but the content they spoke about!! This would truly make the app perfect! This option ought to be on all the things we either listen to or hear even if and especially because we would like to be able to access it over and over again especially when the particular subject hit home with us!! Please developers, look into this without concern that your library is big enough for that is the very reason to give us that ability because we like to listen to our favourites over and over again!! Thank you now go and Get your Shine on!!

I’m having problems in finding any Shine taped listening lessons and would love to be made aware of exactly where or how to listen to the 2nd - 7th taped lessons. Please help as well as to where these hearts ♥️ are available to keep my favorites in. Thank you 🙏

Keeping Track

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 :)

Best app there is for mindfulness and getting back on track!

I can’t say enough how important Shine is to my daily regiment, now. It’s the best motivator in the morning to jumpstart my day with positivity and confidence, and also one of the best ways to release my mind from itself at night while listening to the great nightcaps they have to offer, one thing I will say is I would love to see more sleep meditations for those nights when I’m working through something mentally and can’t get my mind off of it, maybe some trauma-informed meditations as well, but the selection really is amazing and I highly recommend subscribing for the year because it’s one of the lowest costs for a subscription of its kind and I got a free journal out of it as well, which I use to further enhance and reinforce my gratitude in the mornings and journal my progress and goals throughout each day! Thank you so much, Shine team, for being such a great anchor and support system! I recommend it to everyone I talk to!
