This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
MindSong helps you find a calm and clear mind. It works by reading signals from the Interaxon Muse, or MindWave mobile EEG headset and turning those into a changing soundscape. The sounds are influenced by your brain activity; moving towards silence as calmness is achieved. By learning how to quiet the music, you learn how to quiet your mind.
What's New in Version 1.1.1
- New splash screen
- App starts with visualization off
- 'Info' button links to detailed instructions on website
- MindSong now works with iPhone 4s (was previously missing bottom toolbar)
Looks like an awesome app
The app looks like an incredible app, but unfortunately I am unable to get the app on my iPhone to recognize and pair with the 2016 Muse headband. The instructions for pairing the app to the headband appear to be the instructions for the 2014 Muse headband. I hope at some point it will be possible to connect to the app, because it is hard to find good software to use with the 2016 Muse that does not require some type of subscription fee. I think it is great that the developer took the time to develop a free app for the Muse.
I've been meditating for the past 2.5 years. This app is making it possible for me to determine which breathing techniques are working for me and which ones are distracting me from the meditation. Anytime my monkey mind kicks in or starts approaching, the music changes and informs me. I'm getting better and better at letting go and drifting into deep meditation. I'd love to have a version that allows you to assign different sounds to the different brain wave frequencies.
