GPS for the Soul
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Newly redesigned for iOS7, GPS for the Soul is based on two truths: that we all have within us a centered place of harmony and balance, and that we all veer away from that place again and again.
GPS for the Soul measures your heart rate and heart rate variability, which taken together are a proxy for stress, and then connects you with the things that help you course-correct -- from music and poetry to breathing exercises and pictures of your loved ones.
Using your phone's camera lens to measure your stress level, GPS for the Soul will display your stress reading on your iPhone. The App then invites you to launch a guide.
A guide is a collection of the things that help you course-correct -- from music and poetry to breathing exercises and pictures of your loved ones. GPS for the Soul lets you play one of the guides we have assembled for you, or create your own. GPS for the Soul's activity feed lets you see how your friends are feeling and what guides resonate with them.
The Internet and the rise of social media have given us amazing tools to connect, and to bring about change in the world. At the same time, our 24/7 connection to the digital world often disconnects us from the real world around us -- from our physical surroundings, from our loved ones, and especially from ourselves. We see the effects of this in every aspect of our lives. And the consequences can be really damaging, in terms of our health, our jobs, and our relationships. That's why HuffPost, along with our mobile development partners bLife and HeartMath, have created GPS for the Soul.
We hope GPS for the Soul will be just the beginning of a journey to help you reconnect with your creativity, your intuition, your peace and your wisdom.
What's New in Version 2.0.2
Simple, yet profound in what an app like this can do for someone's state of mind. The classical music is a bonus to me, as the songs I've heard so far on the app have special meaning to me. Great words of encouragement. So far, for about 20 minutes, I'm enjoying this.
Had this app in a previous version before loading it again. New version is disappointing. The guides don't last long enough and end abruptly. Some guides won't open. I do like the stress level test but it isn't available to everyone. I also created my own guide, but it didn't save it anywhere I could find? The old version was easier to use and more satisfying.
Gps for the soup
Used it several times, i felt it reads my stress closely. One of the issues is that it crashes unexpectedly 1 out of 5 that I was using it. It has more room for inprovement.
