SHINE -  App review

Shine is a digital wellness application. It was initially developed by two women who wanted to help and encourage other women both in and out of the workplace. Through the app, they’ve made it easy to find motivational words and advice whenever they are needed, at the touch of a finger.

The application works by engaging the user in a conversation that starts with a question, and then it develops into a deeper motivational conversation, and ends with brief text to read. The reading gives advice on how to overcome difficult moments that you are experiencing or to help to cope. Shine works like a chat, with questions and answers, and is free.

The application works well when you don’t have that friend, who you always trust, to give you a hug or to just listen to you when you are not feeling well, or when you need encouragement.

The application appears to help to calm you down, whenever you feel under pressure or alone, with some common, simple solutions. We may already know these solutions but, sometimes need to hear it said by someone else.

An upgraded version includes motivational and meditation audio tracks that help users get into daily self-care. These audio affirmations cost $7.99 per month or $59.99 per year. According to some other reviews of the application, many people find these audios very helpful, while others, not much. In order to get the audios, there is a charge, but there is a seven-day free trial that you can cancel at any time without a charge.

In my opinion, Shine is worth a try, to discover it for yourself.
