Rootd aims to provide relief for people experiencing anxiety and panic attacks, with tools based on cognitive behavior therapy. The app has six main features including: “Rootr”, a button users can press for immediate support during panic attacks through prompts; “Breathr”, a section that contains breathing exercises; “Visualizr”, a section that contains active meditations and nature sounds; “Lessons”; a section that is aimed at providing users with psychoeducation about anxiety; “Stats”, a record of how users are progressing; and “Journal” a section that lets users note how they feel for purposes of pattern recognition and building gratitude. The free version of this app features everything mentioned above but to a more limited degree. To gain access to all the features users can pay $6.99/month, $59.99/year, or $139.99/lifetime.
