This is a list of FREE Apps (though some have paid features) that can be used for: guided meditation, ways to practice mindfulness, tools for self-expression, mantras, creativity, organization, wellness, and more.
ComeSoFar.org is not sponsored by or affiliated with any app.
Airbrush - creative photo editing app, good for both mindless and mindful times. Free, but paid version is even better if you are a creator.
Canva - creative design app I enjoy. Free, but paid version is worth it if you have need/desire/ability to invest in digital art creation.
Google Primer - A free app from Google that offers lessons on finance, business, and more
Google Rewards - A free app from Google that pays you for taking occasional surveys that usually take a minute or less.
Keep Notes - Free app to maintain checklists. Has a widget to "pin" to home screen for convenience. Excellent for visual learners.
Pedometer Step Counter - This app helps give a visualization of steps taken, with graphs and stats daily, weekly, and monthly.
Pinterest - Use this free app to peruse and save quotes, crafts, recipes, photos, and more. Pinterest can be both a mindless escape or it can help with mindfulness, or used as a search engine or portfolio / gallery. Pin your own ides / photos or look through millions of others.
Pokemon Go - fun free game that can be played alone or with people all over the world. Mindless escape. Free, but has in-app purchases. In-game money can be earned free by spinning pokestops and in-game items can be acquired free by exchanging gifts with others. I recommend www.reddit.com/r/pokemongofriends to find others for exchanging gifts.
Professor Layton - A beautiful puzzle game series that has been turned into an app. Free when using points earned from Google Rewards app.
Shine app - Life changing guided meditation app if you're willing to keep and open mind. Free, but that paid version has even more features and meditations (Wait for a sale).
Tarot Card of the Day - A just-for-fun daily tarot-card-style horoscope; a playful twist on the traditional, interspersed w/ helpful life lessons & advice. This can be a mindful moment because it gives you a topic or thought to focus your mind.
Worry Dolls - A free, simple app that has "worry dolls" who hold on to your troubles. Inclusive of all skin colors and adorable.
