Shine makes self-care easy for all of us. Get a boost in the morning, break in the afternoon, or wind down at bedtime—our app is here to help you do you, 24/7.
Here’s how it works:
**GET FREE DAILY MOTIVATIONAL TEXTS**
Things you tell yourself: I can’t, I’m not, I won’t. Things Shine tells you: You got this, be kind to yourself, take it one step at a time. Each weekday, we'll message you bite-sized, research-backed advice to help you practice self-love, get motivated (#focusmode), and realize you’re not alone in the struggle. Think of it as a daily text from a friend who *sees* you & has your back. Bonus: You can favorite and collect the Shine Texts that have you like ‘woah’ to build your own self-care toolkit.
**LISTEN TO 5-MIN MEDITATIONS & AFFIRMATIONS**
Grow on the go with our Shine Talks, aka meditations and affirmations that’ll guide you through specific situations (toxic friends, anyone?), help you find your calm on a hectic day, and build towards a more compassionate, productive you via our 7-day challenges. Plus: Get *exclusive* inspiration straight from self-care superstars with our Shine Stories.

Ratings and Reviews
Daily texts and motivational messages for emotional well-being.
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 don’t write a lot of reviews but my Shine experience is a bit tarnished. I’ve done 2 days worth of use and encountered numerous problems like blank screens and other odd glitches causing me to quit the app several times. But then I went to listen to one of the challenges and within a minute or two of listening about productivity I was instructed to respond to things I would see on the screen. Ok. That’s cool, I thought, I thought this was just audio. Turns out I was right, it was just audio. At least I think. I can’t find a way to confirm if it’s a glitch and something didn’t load or if it’s just audio lifted straight from another source. Either way, it was a weird feeling and I couldn’t proceed because of it. Coupling that with awkward narration in virtually everything I heard means your money would most likely be better used on another mindful app. But give it a go if you’re willing to deal. I, unfortunately, am starting to think I am not. :-/
Developer Response ,
Thanks so much for letting us know about your recent experience with Shine. The audio prompts in the “Get Productive” Challenge correlated with a previous, interactive version of the app - thanks for flagging that discrepancy. The Challenge has been updated, and we really appreciate your feedback.
