App Design and Philosophy
It is designed to feel right at home on your iPhone and Apple Watch and of course it’s integrated with Apple Health to effortlessly track your mindful minutes. Many Apple platform features are supported in order to deeply integrate Zenitizer into your life: from automating meditation sessions via Shortcuts to setting the right mood for meditations using HomeKit or showing your current meditation stats and streaks on widgets or Apple Watch complications - if there’s an Apple-platform feature that a meditation app would benefit from, I’m planning to adopt it 🤓
What About Guided Meditations?
While I may possibly add simple guided meditations with a minimal degree of instructions, Zenitizer does not aim to provide a broad catalogue of guided meditations and similar content. If that’s what you’re looking for, Zenitizer is not for you - and that’s okay! You should use whatever helps your practice and guided meditations can be very valuable - especially when you’re getting started with mindfulness, so I encourage you to try different strategies and see what works best for you!
Also, keep in mind that these philosophies are not mutually exclusive but they can actually complement each other! I, too, sometimes feel like I would enjoy a guided meditation and then I’ll simply listen to one. But most of the time, I personally just prefer a minimal meditation timer on my wrist that I can use to track mindfulness sessions in everyday life.
All of Zenitizer’s statistics, daily goal and streaks features are based on Apple Health, so they will take mindful minutes recorded by other apps into account as well. There is no “lock-in” and I truly want you to use what works best for you and mix and match apps as you see fit ❤️
