Mindcurrent is a mindfulness and meditation app designed to help its users manage stress and increase productivity. Users are required to create a free account in order to access any content. Mindcurrent offers guided audios and daily check-ins. Through the use of artificial intelligence (AI), Mindcurrent uses user data, daily check-in data, and biometric data to create daily progress reports, identify stress patterns, and recommend certain actions to be taken, such as listening to a specific guided audio. Mindcurrent can also connect to the user’s calendar to further tailor the AI results. The information is used to supply the user with a trackable daily progress chart which can be compared with past daily progress charts to map overall progress.
