Smiling Mind is a guided meditation app fit for all ages. The app offers six mindfulness "programs" - four of which are categorized by age group (7-11 year olds; 12-15 year olds; 16-22 year olds; and adults). There are two additional programs: "Bite Size" (lasting 1-4 minutes) and "Extended" (15-45 minutes) meditations characterized by age group and meditation duration. Users are able to rate themselves - pre and post mindfulness practice- on several dimensions, such as whether the user feels "energized" or "tired"; "connected" or "disconnected", etc. The app tracks the user's total number of completed meditations and rewards the user with a digital "achievement " medal when the user completes a specific meditation for the first time.
