      Awesome feedback and idea! I think you'll be pleased with future releases. We're currently focused on rebuilding everything and will be launching new content and features along these lines :-) Stay tuned though it may be a few more months ...

        Thanks for the feedback, this is something we hope to address in our next major release this year as we're rebuilding the app from the ground up to allow new features and functionality. As for content, different spacing is definitely something we'll want to improve on and personalize where possible.

          Awesome feedback and ideas! We're currently rebuilding the app from the ground up and I think you'll be pleased :-) It will probably take at least a few months more, but stay tuned and reach out again if you like!

            Katie --- thank for the kind words and request. We're in the process of completely rebuilding the app from the ground up and syncing with Apple's health app is one of the features we'll be adding. If you ever have the time and interest we'd love to hear more about the impact on your life, please reach out anytime to support@inward.me. They go to me, Walter, cofounder ceo.

              At this time there is no sync. However, we're hard at working rebuilding the app from scratch and the new codebase should support this. We'll be updating users when we're closer and know exactly what features we'll relaunch with. Thank you!

                Sorry for this hassle for the slow response to this, there is a quick fix. If you go into the app and change one of your reminders (e.g., turn it off and then on again) it will reset to the local time zone that you are in. If you change time zones again you'll need to repeat. This is not ideal for sure and is one of the reasons we're focused on rebuilding the app from scratch to fix and other issues along with adding new features and functionality. Thanks again for letting us know!

                  Thanks for requesting updated programs, we’re working on it! If you have any suggestions on what specific types of programs you’d like, or how we could improve upon our approach to programs, please let us know as we deeply value your feedback as we extend and fine tune Mindfulness Daily :-)

                  Super feedback! All would be lovely programs. We have personal experience with most of these and know experts in all of them. Thanks, keep the great feedback and suggestions coming :-)

                    We’ve heard from enough people that this is an issue. We’ve started to try to find the issue and have added it as a critical issue to address ASAP. Thank you very much for reporting it. Sorry for the hassles, we deeply appreciate your patience and support!

                    Thanks for the specific details of what's going wrong. We're actively trying to replicate and fix. We'll update as soon as we can get this completed.

                    Thank you! We've already added this to the top of the list as we've heard this from a few more people too. If you have any more specific examples of whats going on please add them. Though we've heard enough to know we need to do a deep dive to figure out whats wrong and to correct as soon as we can.

                      Although the voice in our app is a real person, I understand completely what you mean. For some it is really nice, others it is too robotic. We hope to be adding more voices and settings in the future but are not yet sure when we’ll be able to launch this. Please keep in touch and we hope we can add a voice(s) that really works for you. In the meantime, one app you may want to try, which has a few great voices and a really cool creator is Buddhify 2. The nicest voice in my opinion, and that of many others I’ve been told, is actually the creator’s wife’s voice. Let me know you think and please give additional feedback or ideas if you think it will help our efforts expanding voice options :-)

                        Great feedback! We like those authors too, and will endeavor to do more towards what you describe.

                        Please continue to give feedback on this. Any specific quotes, data or even suggested content (e.g., if you think a particular lesson theme or text would be good based on your experience or expertise) we'd love to hear them and would value it greatly :-)

                          We’ll explore what size ipad’s and what perspective (vertical/horizontal) are more or less user friendly. If you have any more specifics on size, orientation or ideas in what would be more user friendly we’d greatly appreciate it. One user told us that sometimes they’d have to change the perspective Horizontal/Vertical to make text input easier. Perhaps this is the same issue.

                            Great news! It took us waaaaay longer than we had hoped, but we finally have added reminders to the lifelog. Simple return to app, scroll down to the lifelog and tap a reminder to be brought into a flow like Pause or Checkin :-) - If you have any feedback on the new design and content please let us know via support@inward.me thank you! walter

                            We'd love to support having reminders be logged in the LifeLog section of the app but this proved to be hard to implement than we thought. Until we have the time/resources to implement it properly, I have a short term tip that might help. If you swipe down on your phone from its homepage, you'll see the Notification Center of your iOS device. It has a "missed" tab on the top right. There you'll see notifications that you missed. Here is a link that describes this at a high level. Please write in to us if you have any additional questions:

                              Thanks for the close attention to detail! We’ve added this to the list of things we’ll be addressing the next time we can thoroughly sweep through the app to make such changes. If you find more things like this, please share them with us :-)

                                Although we don’t know when we’ll be able to implement this, we are planning to support more days of content. This requires us adding a downloading of more content feature set which we’d want to do right. If you have any suggestions of the types of content or content providers we should work with please include that here too.

                                In addition to my note in the Status update of this idea ... Olly, are you using the Remix button that appears after the 21 days are completed? If so, would adding different times on each help or are you thinking of something else?

                                At some point we'd love to have different lengths of each practice and have users select what they want based on how much time they have and what practice is of interest to them that day.

                                  Thanks for the kind words and input. We’d love to support better sync but we’re not sure when we’ll be able to launch this given we’re a small team. Please note that one work around is to go to the more section (3 lines icon upper left corner), tap on “Help” and then tap on “Lock / Unlock Days”. Then select a day and just fast forward through them. You can catch up where you are then. It is not ideal but one way to do it … thanks for your patience and support :-)

                                      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!

                                      In theory the Life Log is where you can find what you inputted in any area of the app including the Night Reflection. If you are having issues seeing "nil" or only part of your entries, please let us know. We made an update that tried to address this issue. Please check to make sure you are using the latest version from iTunes.

                                      We also improved how we showed input in the lifelog (tapping it should allow you see read all your input). If this is not working for you and you've updated to the latest version, please let us know so we can continue to debug. Thanks for your input, we value it deeply!

                                        Great feedback, we plan to refine things like bell volume, turning it on/off, etc. We totally agree and see how this is a personal preference and can be alarming or jolting for some while others it is the opposite. Thank you for the patience, we believe in a few releases we’ll be able to pause and really dig into this particular idea as well as other’s like it … please continue to give feedback so we can keep focused on what will make a true impact on people using Mindfulness Daily in their lives :-)

                                        Thanks for all the feedback :-))

                                        We've started to implement quieter bells (and continue to think of other things such as a suggested clicks) on the end of meditations.

                                        We have also started to implement different volumes of reminder bells and will add different sounds asap as well.

                                        In the meantime, one way to solve the loud reminder issue - at least partially - is to turn off the sound completely via the settings on your ios device. Here are instructions how to do this below. We hope to get a better solution asap for this, thanks for the feedback and patience.

                                        HOW TO TURN OFF SOUND OF REMINDERS (i.e., using your device's settings outside of the app)
                                        - On your device, tap Settings
                                        - Tap on Notification Center
                                        - Scroll down to tap "Mindful" app in list
                                        - Switch off "Sounds"
                                        - Thanks again!

                                        P.s., and incase it helps, here is directions how to turn off or change the settings of all reminders from the app:

                                        HOW TO PERSONALIZE REMINDERS (i.e., turning off/down)
                                        - Open up Mindfulness Daily by tapping on its icon (+)
                                        - Go to the more section by tapping on the 3 line icon on upper left corner of the Mindfulness Daily homescreen (same screen as "let's begin")
                                        - Tap on '+ Reminders' button
                                        - Select each reminder type by tapping each one to personalize times, frequencies and/or turn off completely

                                          We’ve been trying to replicate this issue for the last 24 hours but have not yet been able to. We continue to try. If anyone knows how or is also having the same issue, please write us at support@inward.me (or using uservoice here) so we can quickly replicate and fix in the next release. We’re very sorry if anyone is having this issue as well and we aim to fix it asap! Thank again for your patience and support!

                                            Great idea! We’ve been talking to a few users and are in the design process to make this an option feature to turn on. If you have any additional thoughts on how this would best work for you, please let us know! We’re not sure when this will make it into the live versions, but the process has begun!

                                            There is currently no feature that makes alarms go off every hour. To turn of the daily reminders, I've included the instructions below:

                                            HOW TO PERSONALIZE REMINDERS
                                            - Open up Mindfulness Daily by tapping on its icon (+)
                                            - Go to the more section by tapping on the 3 line icon on upper left corner of the Mindfulness Daily homescreen (same screen as "let's begin")
                                            - Tap on '+ Reminders' button
                                            - Select each reminder type by tapping each one to personalize times, frequencies and/or turn off completely

                                            Thank you!

                                            We don't have an hourly reminder yet, though we have other reminders that may seem like they go off that often. I've added below instructions to turn down, up or off all reminders so that you can personalize it to your likings. We find people are very different and use the reminders in all kinds of way. Thanks for so kindly reaching out and please let us know how your experience with reminders go over time :-)

                                            HOW TO PERSONALIZE REMINDERS
