test on iphone
The way BetterMe works on iOS is exactly the same as for Android. As an added bonus, it can be linked to the iPhone's Health application to record data there and obtain more information about the user's activity.
BetterMe is an application with a fairly visual interface, set in a starry night, and without saturation due to excessive information. Its structure is very careful, since it offers a daily plan so that the user can make the most of its functionalities, but the different resources can also be accessed individually.
Accessibility for people with reduced or no visibility
To test accessibility for people with zero visibility, the Android voice narrator, Talk Back, has been used and it has been verified that it works correctly and offers a positive experience for these users. The iOS voice narrator, Voice Over, has also been tested and the same conclusion as with Talk Back has been verified.
For people with reduced visibility, it can be difficult to read the texts due to the very dark interface it presents.
Accessibility for people with hearing difficulties
Most of BetterMe's content relies on audio guides, music, and sounds that require you to listen, limiting its accessibility for the hard of hearing. Unfortunately, the app does not have a text audio description option for users who cannot access audio content.
Accessibility for people with cognitive difficulties
BetterMe stands out for its simplified and well-organized interface, so it wouldn't be a problem for this group. In addition, it uses many representative images for each audio, which makes it easier to understand.
In short, BetterMe is a very complete application in terms of mindfulness tools, designed to adapt to various areas in which the user may need relaxation. It has an intuitive interface that facilitates navigation, and offers plans that guide the user to improve their experience and reach a state of well-being, through the practice of mindfulness.
