The Angry Birds app soared out of Finland, creating an epidemic of frazzled pig haters eager to blast the little green beasts into submission. Perhaps the Finns figured it was time to roll back our nation’s collective porcine fury with an app that encourages deep breathing and overall Zen. Enter Blissify Me ($2.99) by Eternitas Publishing.
The iPhone app guides users through a series of meditations that focus on relaxation, positivity and happiness. Think you’re too busy to find peace? Think again. Each meditation lasts fewer than 20 minutes. When you’re done, rate your experiences to unlock new and more challenging meditations. The good karma comes for less than the cost of a yoga class, and 10 percent of the proceeds go to charity. We’ll say “Namaste” to that.
