Comments: The app provides mindfulness training and progresses through modules with personalised logs. Appropriate material available for children and adolescents. Easy to follow audio files. The amount of content could be quite overwhelming as it's quite comprehensive. Very little pictorial content.
Safety concerns: None.
New Zealand relevance: Fine except that the audio file voice has an Australian accent.

Comments: I quite liked the question check in with your self- we don't generally do this. Program choice Guidance through each exercise. Options available for children & adults A dashboard that illustrated my progress. didn't like the reminders to participate. I also felt that Youtube clips could heightened engagement/entertainment. Children found it hard to engage.
