Counseling people are starting to use apps for use between sessions to help people get better.
The jury is still out as to whether or not someone would rather do a therapy app or play Angry Birds, but some things are on the horizon, according to this article from the NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/14/health/feeling-anxious-soon-there-will-be-an-app-for-that.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all.
So far, I haven’t seen too many apps that I use in my practice, however, there is one of note for those of my clients whom I teach meditation to: Insight Timer, by Spotlight Six Software. Info on the iPhone version is here: http://www.spotlightsix.com/iphone-meditation-timer/. An Android version is here: http://www.spotlightsix.com/android-meditation-timer/. This is a meditation timer using singing bowl tones, which are less jarring that standard alarm ringtones. It also offers the opportunity to find community among other meditators, although for that I’d recommend face to face contact instead.
Hope you find these useful.
