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 :)

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.

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!
