Buddhify is designed to help users build mindfulness skills and incorporate daily meditations for those “on the go”. Upon opening the app, Buddhify prompts users to choose from nine meditation “wheels” — collections of guided meditation practices curated by the creators of Buddhify. To practice an on-the-go meditation, users can choose a section of the collection (a.k.a “wheel”) to identify the type of guided meditation practice they’d like to complete. Each wheel includes up to fifteen different audio tracks designed to target specific components of the collection, including options to manage stress and anxiety, physical illness, concentration, and many others. The meditation tracks vary in length between 4 – 15 minutes, and include a section designed for use by parents with young children.
