What does the app do?

Paced Breathing allows the user to focus on timed deep breathing exercises. Users simply set their inhale, exhale, and hold times to whatever they want, and the app will give cues for when to start inhaling and exhaling. There is a simple graphic wave length guiding your breathing, or you can simply follow the different sounds. You can set up different profiles to use for different activities or for different family/whānau members. There is an option to have a voice instructing you to breathe in or out, and also to ramp up or change the rate of your breathing over the set time of your breathing exercises. This should not be used by someone who is acutely unwell or short of breath without instruction. 

For the complete app description, go to Google Play(external link) or, for a more detailed review, see Reviews.


✔ Simple design, easy to use.

✔ Allows users to create a profile to save their settings. i.e. meditation breath times vs relaxation. 

✔ Session can be timed and have a change to the rate using the ‘ramp function’. 

✘ No diary on how you managed.

✘ No feedback if you are actually breathing to the rate set.

✘ Ads unless you purchase an in app purchase.
