What's New in Version 2.5
We fixed the watch extension for the 38mm version, as it was not showing all the content correctly.
**edit: removed a star because why would anyone think that deep dark piano was a good relaxing addition? Feels like a horror movie...**
Overall it's good but there are a bunch of annoying things like:
The sound to inhale/exhale is vague so you can't really close your eyes and get the same results (maybe they should have the typical bell/bowl sound option?) you can't turn off the music without turning off the inhale/exhale sound, which blends in with the music.
The different heart rate values it measures your improvement on apparently don't improve just through better breathing & the tips don't help. Super frustrating.
It limits your inhale/exhale rate & the number of breaths in each session, both very low.
The measurements taken before & after are short so sometimes you may not be totally relaxed or settled.
It has to be plugged in & occasionally crashes (possibly from overheating, which you'd expect).
Still worth doing but would be better with a few fixes.
Simple and Beautiful
The app developers are making the world a better place by providing this free app.
Update: I really appreciate the new features and redesign. I'm not a paying subscriber, but the Pro option isn't too intrusive. Still very happy to use this when I'm stressed!
I use it 3 or 4 times a day.
When I'm having trouble getting my mind to calm down, I use the app, and it works really well! Thank you BioBeats Team!
