Unbreak Your Heart: iPhone App Video and Written Reviews
If you’re like most people (and we’re willing to be that you are) you’ve had your heart broken at some point during your life—if you’re like us, probably quite a bit more than just every now and again. As such, you understand the deep, dark pain that comes out of a broken relationship. Being in that position is hard on anybody, but now, with Unbreak Your Heart by developer MightyGorrila the process of mending your heart strings might be just a little bit easier. For our full review of this health-minded application, simply check below beyond the break!
Concept and Functionality
The idea behind Unbreak Your Heart is relatively simple: There are certain, proven psychological methods that will help to ease the anxiety, the depression, and the sense of loss that comes with heart break. The app strives to deliver these methods to you in a way that you’ll listen and absorb the information into your waking life. It does this through a variety of different ways.
Firstly, you can flick through a written list of suggestions and mental tricks to help you relax and tune-out. The app is big on getting you to stop grinding your wheels and simply take some time for yourself: An activity that’s understandably hard for anyone in a heartbroken position. Unbreak Your Heart also has a very soothing, music-accented portion in which the author of the text at work Alexander Kerr, gives you some very important and life-changing thoughts on the subject. It’s suggested that you listen to the author’s words once a day, and during a time when you can relax with headphones. We feel like this is likely sound advice, as it provides an atmosphere in which you’re most receptive to healing, moving on, and improving your life once more.
Design and Interface
That being said, Unbreak Your Heart simply isn’t the prettiest interface we’ve ever seen. It uses a lot of menus kept along the sidebar, which is a fine way to go, though it can at times be confusing. Additionally, there are no playback controls within the app, which means when Alexander Kerr starts reading, you’ll have no ability to make him stop. For some, this might not bother them, but it surely did turn our crank in the wrong direction.
We also feel like Unbreak Your Heart is slightly more expensive than it aught to be. Four dollars for the app might seem like a lot, but then again, if you’re very deeply depressed and heartbroken, perhaps it will come across as an extreme value. Which is really the main point with Unbreak Your Heart: The amount of value that you get out of it largely depends on you. Your state of mind, your willingness to change, etc. So with that in mind, if you’re heartbroken, you might aught to give Unbreak Your Heart a go. You never know what will happen.
Unbreak Your Heart requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
