Aware guides users through daily mindfulness meditations aimed to reduce stress and improve well-being. The app starts with the user completing a 3-week training course that teaches the foundations of mindfulness meditation. After completing the training, the user is encouraged to complete Daily Guide, which contains daily meditations to practice the skills learned in the foundation course. The interface has four sections: Home, Meditation, Breathe and More. ‘Home’ lists remaining meditations in the user’s active courses, as well as “energizers” or short meditations to use throughout the day. ‘Meditation’ lists all courses and single meditations available, each with its own focus (some are only available through a premium account). ‘Breathe’ has animations to guide the user through breathing exercises for various situations. The final section, ‘More’, provides access to additional features including meditation reminders, blog posts, and a personal profile displaying your app engagement.
