  • Stress Relief Self-Hypnosis

    Name: Stress Relief Self-Hypnosis

    Developer: PPL Development Company

    Price: $2.99

    Compatibility: iOS 4.2 or later. Compatible with iPad.

    We all cope with stress using different methods, as it is so often part of modern life. However, the developers of Stress Relief Self-Hypnosis say that through hypnotherapy sessions presented via this app, "you will learn to respond in a more positive manner to the triggers of stress and free yourself from stress disorder, gaining real and lasting stress relief."

    When I tried the app, there were certainly no amazing revelations about my response to stress -- but the music did calm everything down for a time.

    Really? A WHOLE 5 minutes to relax? wonderful. But then again, most users of these devices these days...and I am referring to ALL makes & models, not solely Apple...have the attention span of a Flea I guess 5 minutes more than they need.
