The application is divided into 5 screens that offer all the content, which can be accessed through the bottom toolbar: 


This main screen provides users with a daily plan with recommended activities, divided into what to do in the morning, during the day and at night. The application offers multiple resources to address different aspects, such as anxiety, work stress or sleep improvement. These resources include breathing exercises, audio guides, stories, sounds, and music, each designed to address specific needs. Each time an activity is completed, it is marked as done, which allows you to keep track of the tasks you have completed.

To help the user sleep, BetterMe offers a variety of audios of about 15 minutes in the form of stories or relaxing music. The free version offers 3 audios of each, the rest belong to the Premium version.  

The audios have a sleep timer function, which allows the user to set the number of hours they want the audios to play. Although these audios are approximately 15 minutes long, they will be played in a loop until the set timer expires.

Sounds can also be set on a timer, allowing them to play until the time set on the timer expires.

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. 


  • Quality content and useful tools for relaxation. 
  • Simple and well organized app. 
  • Touch different areas in which to relax through mindfulness. 
  • The daily plan allows to structure the user's routine optimally. 


Points to improve 

  • Improvable accessibility for people with reduced visibility. 
  • Lack of audio-descriptions for people with hearing difficulties. 
  • Very limited in the free version.
