PAUSE - Relaxation at your fingertip
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Based on the ancient principles of Tai Chi and mindfulness practice, PAUSE brings the act of focused attention to your mobile device. Using a patent-pending technique and a unique approach to modern technology, you can easily start the journey to relaxation – anywhere and anytime. By slowly and continuously moving your fingertip across the screen, PAUSE triggers the body’s ‘rest and digest’ response, quickly helping you regain focus and release stress within minutes. The calming audiovisual feedback in the app is designed to help you keep your attention and focus in the present moment. Throughout development of the application, PAUSE has been continuously tested and validated using EEG-technology.

Mindfulness at hand
I've done mindfulness work in a lot of settings, but I don't often have time or the structured environment to really settle down for a long stretch-- but I still need that pause (apt name). Yes, this is very simple, but I appreciate that; it's what I was looking for. If you do want something more complex, then this may not be the best choice.
What this is good for (for me): tense moments during the day when I need a breather. The first time I used it, I was frustrated because I felt like the blob expanded too fast, like it was giving too many directions, etc. I realized that was my mind focusing too much on the details of the app and being distracted from mindfulness practice: once I let all that go and let myself fall into the soothing aspects, it worked beautifully.
Your degree of satisfaction may vary depending on how much you're willing to let go of focus on design details and drift I to mindfulness practice-- and that is purely an individual preference. It is too bad that there isn't a brief trial period or demo so that users could see which side of the line they fall on before paying. My best advice is to ask yourself whether or not you're typically bothered by function or if you can set that aside.
Pro tip: this mindfulness app is great for using at work. It's so unobtrusive that no one will have any idea what you're doing-- if they even notice.
The dot disappears after a couple of minutes. The whole screen is covered so I’m not following anything. Then it tells me to close my eyes. For how long? It never tells me to open them so I peak. Im going too fast is in the screen. How am I supposed to see that with my eyes closed?? And I could just put on some zen music and move my finger across the screen of my phone and it wouldn’t cost me $1.99. Don’t waste your money
You follow the blob for one minute then it turns into a solid color instead of spending 2 dollars on this you could just turn off your phone close your eyes and move your finger very slowly on the screen which is the same function this app would have minus the bird sounds I thought I was going to be following the blob for the whole time but I quickly fills the screen I think this app is misleading For only showing screenshots of the blob and not what truly happens for the whole ten mins I feel scammed
