Bugs‌ ‌found‌ ‌in‌ Aura for iOS

Aura

4.7

Aura is a mindfulness meditation app designed for people seeking to improve their sleep habits, reduce anxiety, or just take proper care of their mental health. Aura is not your typical meditation app: it uses the power of AI to determine what content you need most, be it meditation, coaching, or relaxing music. Only 3-minute-long, Aura’s meditations can be easily incorporated into the most hectiсof days, and the app also provides unguided meditations for those who prefer nature sounds to a human voice. Having integration with Apple Health, Aura allows its users to track their moods and identify distinct mood patterns.

With the app’s reminders and notifications, Aura subscribers won’t forget to take mindful breathers to shake off all the negativity throughout the day. Aura also boasts a large community of health-conscious people supporting each other and sharing their progress in mastering the art of meditation.

Healthcare & Wellness is one of the verticals we’re continually expanding; therefore, Aura for iOS fits nicely into our Bug Crawl portfolio. We thoroughly tested the app, and here are the issues we suggest eliminating in the nearest time.

Aura seems like the simplest solution for fighting stress and anxiety while increasing positivity through bite-sized meditations. The app provides short, sweet, and personalized mindfulness meditations, life coaching, stories, and music whenever you need to take a break. The overall impression of the app is super positive; the latest iPhone devices will not show any explicit UI inaccuracies or any other issues. However, using older models, like iPhone 5 and iPad 2, will surely ruin the user’s joy. For example, the latest available build for iPad 2 crashes every time the user tries to launch the app.
