  1. Appointment

    So you build a mindfulness app and the first thing it wants to do is make an alarm (appointment) in the morning. That's a big fail.. :s

      We truly appreciate your input on this. We are constantly trying to find ways to support mindfulness while catering to varied preferences. Some people think the reminders are the best and most important part of the app, while others find them offensive and not mindful at all. We totally understand and endeavor to make the app as configurable as possible to meet the needs of all types of preferences, especially those that change over time with practice. Towards that end, we’ve designed the app to have people try out the reminders as designed, but also give them full control to tune them up/down/off to match their preferences. We have also designed the app to train new habits that eventually make the reminders and app unneeded. Where the person starts the day mindfully, before checking email for example or letting the worries of the past or future crash in. To pause…

    • "Inhale" is Not a Noun (Neither is "Exhale").

      The incorrect use of these two words is irritating and very distracting; this is a great pity because the app sounded promising.

        Thanks for the attention to detail. We’ve added this to a list of things we hope to cleanup, although it can be tough given the multi-media nature of the program. Please keep sending in specifics that we can hopefully address in one thorough sweep of the app. We are truly sorry for any irritation or distraction this may have caused.

      • Night reflections

        Is there a section where it is possible to re-read what one has written down during the "Night reflections"? I can't seem to find it.
        Thank you!

          We’re looking into the “nil” issue, in theory all input should be accessible in the Lifelog section. Please let us know if the next release still has this issue for you (it is coming out in the next few days). Thank you!

        • Stop pause alerts from happening during calls

          When I'm using my iphone as an actual phone, occasionally pauses and checks will alert during the call. Please consider a way to stop these alerts from interrupting phone conversations, it's counteractive. Thanks.

            Great feedback! We’ll definitely see if we can do this, although it might be a limitation of the controls that apple gives developers for access to its notification center. That said, we’ll be mindful of how best we can design around this on the apple platform as well as future platforms that may have different constraints :-)

              Thanks for the feedback, we’re exploring ways to improve the night reflection but do not yet have a timeline. Please continue to give specific feedback on what you like, don’t like or examples of things you wish it did. We hope to be able to implement many improvements and refinements over the next year.

                We totally agree, thanks for bringing this to the top of our list … we tried to adjust the sound in a few of the tracks, especially the silent practice … the changes will be available in the next release that may go live this week. Please let us know if it was fixed or still needs improvement! Thanks :-)

                  Using clicks is a great idea, we’ll add that to our discussion in how to address the issue with the loud startling bell. Thanks again for being active in our community and for supporting our efforts to continuously extending and fine tuning Mindfulness Daily.

                    Great idea! We’ve been doing the groundwork to enable this feature (deep linking, tagging, etc) :-) If you have any feedback on how you’d like this feature or what your favorite pause videos are, we’d love to hear more about your experience with them in the meantime! Thanks for reaching out, contributing your ideas and for using the app :-)

                  • Love this app on ipad but very disappointed doesn't work on iphone

                    I can't see any reason that makes this too technically advanced for a 3GS. My iphone is not THAT old!

                      We have limited resources currently and have had to focus on one version of apple’s iOS operating system (iOS7). In past apps we tried to support more than one and ended up with performance issues that caused more problems then we were able to support. Hopefully we’ll be able to support multiple versions of iOS but we’re not sure when that might be, and instead are focused on refining the core experience of the app and incorporating user feedback. Again, thanks for the kind words on the app on your ipad.

                    • Reset activity

                      It would be good to be able to reset your activity to zero and start again for what ever reason one might have!

                          Thanks for the feedback on pauses, we’re experimenting with a few new types and look forward to your feedback on them. If you or anyone else has additional suggestions or details on what we should explore further, please keep adding them :-)

                          • Life log

                            Is it possible to view it as a calendar rather than just a list? Perhaps with the symbols to show the daily practice. Easier to view rather than scrolling down. I'm only on day 4 but loving it's simplicity so far.

                              Thanks for the feedback and idea. The lifelog is going to be getting a lot more attention with the aim to make it more valuable and easier to read while still keeping it as simple as possible. Please continue to give feedback on it as we come out with the next few releases, and keep the ideas coming :-)

                            • ? Sound for pause

                              Is the pause suppost to have sound to prompt inhale and exhale? If not could it be added and maybe the breathing rate slowed

                                Great questions. The pause is currently silent. We are playing with the idea of optional pause videos with sound. We’re also exploring variations of rate. Thanks for your feedback. Please add more questions or ideas to help guide us as we’re refining the pause feature :-)

                              • Flexibility

                                The life tracker is a great tool

                                However I am using a combination of the meditations from with in the app and other guided meditations and my own meditations so it would be good to have the ability to track a meditation but not a meditation from within the app. A category such as "other "would be a good addition

                                Thanks for putting this app out there for the general public to use

We’re definitely only in the early days of what will blossom from the Life Log and what you suggest is definitely something we’re exploring. If you have any other suggestions, please keep adding them! :-)

                                    Thanks for the thoughtful question. We have plans to expand the content in many ways, including exploring physical pain, other difficulties and most context of daily life our users tell us that is important to them (e.g., personal, professional, fitness, illness, wellness, etc). If you have any specific suggestions of context, materials, etc please let us know so we can be sure to prioritize it on our content and feature roadmap :-))

                                      Thank you for the feedback, this is an issue that we are working on and hope to get in the next release or two. It required us to rework how we did a few things in the app before we could do it with a clean solution. Coming soon! (Note: you can access missed notifications via your iphone/ipad/itouch’s Notification Center. Here is one link that talks about how the Notification Center works: http://www.imore.com/how-use-notification-center ) Please contact us again if you have questions in the meantime :-)

                                    • Bell

                                      I like the resonating sound of the bell. It would be interesting to have a practice that has the bell ever 30 secs over 2 mins.

                                        Thank you for kindly making a suggestion on how we can further use the resonating sound of the bell, it is one of our favorites when we use the app ourselves. We’ll be discussing this in the next production/design meeting. Please keep adding suggestions as this is the type of improvement that we’d love to add sooner than later.

                                      • Add export for Pause lifelog entries

                                        Could we get and export function (e.g. to excel or text format) for the Pause reflections? I would love to be able to track trends and progress in those reflections.

                                        • Check-in conclusion

                                          For the second time in the week, today the "check-in conclusion" missed the indication of the part of the body that I selected as "stressed".
                                          What is written is: "I noticed some stress in my ."
                                          In both cases, I had selected only my head as stressed part.

                                          Any idea?

                                          Thank you,
                                          Danilo

                                            This is a bug and should be fixed in the release we just submitted to Apple yesterday. Please let us know if the problems continues after the next update. We’re sorry for any disruption this may have cause you, we personally get frustrated ourselves when this type of things happens in the app as we’re using it too daily :-)
