What's New in Version 2.6.3
Bug fixes to resolve issues on iPhone 4 and 4s devices.
… This app has great potential but has some major flaws. A mindfulness/meditation app requires a very calm and soothing voice for the person that commentates / directs the session. I've tried several sessions in this app with both the male and female commentators. Neither is particularly soothing. The male voice is especially distracting – he has too many crisp notes, I think I detect a lisp which is very distracting and I hear no empathy in his tone. As a healthcare professional, I'm used to detecting empathy in someone's tone of voice. Being told at the end of a four minute intense session to combat 'extreme emotions' that you are more fabulous than you think you are in absolutely dead pan voice is absolutely cringeworthy. Developers really must get their voice overs spot on. My Pilates instructor has the perfect voice – most of us attend the session simply to hear her talk. She uses many of the breath control techniques mentioned in this app, with much more effective results. I would suggest an option to choose which voice-over you prefer. That way the app's content is still being delivered in a format which suits you best. I recognise many users may not even notice it, but I for one can't bear to listen to these voices!
Better than therapy
I get more benefit from this app than any counselling for difficult issues. Great for a beginner who just wants to find some sense of peace. Got to say that the English guy is the best along with Vincent Horn. what a peaceful calming voice with excellent annunciation. I just hope they do another. If you, like me, are a beginner select Just Meditation I & II first. I do agree with other reviews - it would be great if you could select your voice. I avoid many of the meditations because I just can listen to one of the voices. Also I have taken off a star as I emailed them two or three times but they have never answered and they don't update the question and answers section.
Excellent For Daily Use, and Great Voices
This is such a great bridge between longer, formal meditations and meditating throughout the busyness of everyday life - it is genuinely helping me to be calmer, more focuses and relaxed throughout the day as there are exercises for practically any situation.
More importantly, I find the voices very earnest and empathetic. I was expecting to find them distracting after reading previous reviews, about the lisps and whatnot, but this must be a reflection on those listeners, as I find the meditations very real, humane and full of honest character. If there are sometimes cringey moments, it just reminds me that, hey, we're all human and nobody's perfect :)
