Stress Relief Self-Hypnosis

Name: Stress Relief Self-Hypnosis

Developer: PPL Development Company

Price: $2.99

We all cope with stress using different methods, as it is so often part of modern life.

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.

Peaceful Pond

Name: Peaceful Pond

Developer: Purple Penguin.com

Price: Free

Compatibility: iOS 3.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Peaceful Pond is a rather addictive app -- albeit rather a simple one. The basic idea is to create a pond, choose your background, fish and decorations -- but after adding rain and ambient sounds you can de-stress. The music, rain, together with watching fish might not be as soothing as the real thing, but it helps.
