Based on the ancient principles of Tai Chi and mindfulness practice, PAUSE brings the act of focused attention to your mobile device. Using a patent-pending technique and a unique approach to modern technology, you can easily start the journey to relaxation – anywhere and anytime. By slowly and continuously moving your fingertip across the screen, PAUSE triggers the body’s ‘rest and digest’ response, quickly helping you regain focus and release stress within minutes. The calming audiovisual feedback in the app is designed to help you keep your attention and focus in the present moment. Throughout development of the application, PAUSE has been continuously tested and validated using EEG-technology. What is PAUSE? ∙ A new digital approach to ancient meditation practices (patent pending) ∙ An interactive tool to quickly regain focus and release stress ∙ Scientifically tested and validated with EEG-technology ∙ Available anywhere and anytime PAUSE is a collaboration between digital product studio ustwo and Danish mental wellness company PauseAble.



  • Wonderful relaxation with hiccups

    By DerwP
    Wished it supported fullscreen for iPhone X’s visuals. Seeing a tiny screen disrupts the experience. Also, I wish it had the ability to keep sound effects, but mute music so I could listen to my own (vibrating would also help at the end).
  • Extremely simple - in a good way

    By ForgottenFalls
    A simple and efficient way to reset your mind, for the price of half a cup of coffee. Just don’t expect it to do anything it doesn’t do.
  • Waste of two perfectly good George’s.

    WTAF? Total bs and a waste of money.
  • Relaxing App

    By BeeRad1228
    This app makes it easy to meditate and is super relaxing. Only complaint so far is it needs to be able to go full screen on iPhone X and above. Looking at black bars on top and bottom is aesthetically unpleassing. And with you’re eyes closed if you move your finger over the bars then it stops the session.
  • Not worth it 😒

    As others have said, once the blob fills the screen there’s not much else to do. You could just rub your finger on your screen anyway for free... not worth the $1.99
  • Relaxing

    Simple but effective for me. I do wish there was more option in color and sound choice. At least color.
  • Broken

    Please fix for iPhone X. I loved this app and now get no sound. I’ve tried to contact the developer but no response
  • Helps Anxiety Attacks

    By mb62609
    I find this helping as a grounding method before/during anxiety attacks because it forces me to focus on moving my finger with the dot in a precise fashion, so it changes my minds focus.
  • Love it!

    By Jbaler
    But please update for iPhone X if you can. Thanks!
  • Like rubbing a smooth stone

    Wonderful and mindful moment of clarity. Starts off with a lava-lamp looking blob that you move around the screen, then as you get the hang of it the blob fills the screen and you close your eyes to relax. Really great. Nice to destress for 3-5 minutes when things get overwhelming. As of this writing (Jan 25, 2018), the app has not been updated for iPhone X. Still functions, but it isn’t the full screen. Hopefully they will update it soon!?
