Is it possible to develop technology that helps you to visualize and expand your awareness?  To do that requires that you know yourself: you must become aware of things of which you are currently unaware. Is your meditation actually effective at increasing your mindfulness?

The Psygraph app is a set of four tools to quantify your meditation:

  • A stopwatch to track meditation sessions.
  • A counter to track awareness and mindfulness of breath.
  • A timer that delivers bells and quotes at preset or random times.
  • A note utility for text and audio notes that syncs with WordPress.

Each tool has a simple interface (consisting of one or two buttons) and a settings page to customize its behavior.  Each tool saves its events and/or sensor data (such as accelerometer or bluetooth heart rate data) for subsequent analysis and visualization.

Psygraph is cost-free, ad-free, and we won’t sell your data to anyone: this software is developed in order to be of benefit to all people.  In order to use Psygraph, all you need to do is download the app (you can even try out an online version).
