With six unique levels, you will learn new techniques to be mindful in everyday life situations and subtly practise mindfulness anytime and anywhere.

Relying on slow and continuous motion, Sway encourages you to find your own, most effective and subtle way to practise mindfulness in any given situation.

Ratings and Reviews
Crashes after completing Level 1 so never advances
Seemed like a good app, but after trying all week to get past Level 1 but on completing it crashes and starts again on Level 1? iPhone 8+ iOS11.1.2. Please fix and update or refund. App is useless and not what is advertised. Thanks.
Great app but crashes
Such a good app when it works but the latest update seems to crash every time I use it.
Interesting idea not fully realised
I found the concept of this app intriguing and was ready to give it a good go. The app appears sleek and well designed: I like the simplicity and use of colour.
However, I just can't get it to work properly so - rather than being relaxing - it ultimately became a frustration I could do without.
I tried the first activity numerous times; on several occasions, nothing happened. On several others I made it to the end but it would not let me exit the completion screen and would revert back to the beginning once opened again.
With this in mind I'm disappointed to have spent £2.99 on something seemingly useless in its current state. I don't feel that I've been able to try it long enough to know whether the concept does in fact work for me, so I can't comment on its true effectiveness.
