Apps that Need Reviewing

I recently encountered a few devices/apps that deal with habit formation and self regulation. I really want to review them in the future. Here are two recent ones:

Be Still: An app that helps structure prayer time

Pavlock: A “fitbit” like device that uses shocks and other positive and negative reinforcement to help change habits

Be still is intriguing because I do feel that habituation is a process that can be applied to all spirituality - not just eastern meditation. I think it can be used for daily prayer, reflection, or scriptural study.

Pavlock is intriguing because I really haven’t been able to implement negative or positive reinforcement in any way. And I think it’s something I’d like to incorporate into this plan
