Vital-EQ Respiroguide is an app using wave-based visualization to help users decrease levels of anxiety and stress. The home screen displays a breathing visual aid consisting of a wave with a small yellow circle. Upon pressing play, the small yellow circle moves along the wave to indicate when the user should inhale and exhale breaths. It is set up so that the user achieves 4-7 breaths per minute for 3 minutes.

On iTunes, ‘Lite’ and ‘Pro’ versions of the app are available; the Pro version allows the user to personalize each inhalation length, breathing rate, and the total duration of the breathing exercise. This review refers to the Pro version.
