Beat Panic gets 5* reviews:
'Thank you - I've just gone from heart pounding and hyperventilating to normal in one play of the app. It's very helpful having all the things you should be thinking to calm down in front of you as you can't think straight when you realise the panic is gaining momentum... This app rocks - Kazfhydv 23 October 2011

Use your phone to gain control.
Beat Panic is designed to guide you through a panic attack or raised anxiety.
The Beat Panic app takes you through a series of flash cards designed in soothing colours and the text assists you in overcoming the panic attack in a gentle calm manner.
It has been designed by someone who has lived with panic for many years and understands how frightening these attacks are.
Panic attacks can restrict your quality of life. You can lose your confidence and become very self conscious. It can prevent you from going out and socialising, for fear of having another panic attack. This can be extremely disabling and people around you may not understand. However, panic is very treatable and you can learn to control the symptoms.
This application has been designed to help you cope with a panic attack whilst you are out and about. It can also be used to help in your own home, or wherever you happen to be.
No one thinks there is anything unusual about people using their phone in many different situations so you don't need to feel self conscious.
Use your phone to help you cope with panic where and whenever it occurs.
You can beat panic in a variety of ways. Seeing your doctor or other health professionals; and using self help materials provided by them.
This application is one way of helping you in addition to these resources.

What's New in Version 1.1
- Optimized for iPhone 6, 6 Plus.
Beat Panic - Finally!
Finally! I've got the app to load and it isn't crashing anymore! It really is a great simple little app for panic attacks. The calming colours and slow moving messages. But note to the creator: I'd add a screen that says about acceptance of the panic in that moment and to remember 'it will pass'.
Great reviews for the old version and this one is now optimised for the iPhone 6. Please go to Beat Panic's Facebook page if you ahve any questions. Happy to help
Panic over. Great app
