This health and wellness audio app is the kind of mood-lifter I need

One of the best things about technology is its potential to help the world. The explosion of apps on the Apple App and Google Play stores has also seen a rise in apps that directly help us manage our mental health. Personally, I think we could all do with some assistance in this area and the Soaak app is a good example of how this can be achieved with great effect.

It’s no ordinary app, though, and experiencing it, at least to start with, is a bit unnerving. For example, as I write, I’m listening to an anti-anxiety sound frequency that would not be out of place in a suspense thriller series or ghost-themed movie. I therefore have to take the developer’s word for it that it’s calming!
