Shine is a meditation app that helps users to reflect and connect with their inner selves through a self-care routine. This application also unites fellow meditators into one community to share their experiences with each other.

You can also refresh your daily routine with updated self-reflection tools, which you can personalize to your liking. Most importantly, you can log and track your progress with the app.

As a company that values mental wellbeing, we believe that an app like Shine should be flawless. So, we have decided to pick the mantle and test it for bugs.

Shine is an app for daily meditations. It enables self-care and helps to manage stress. While using the app, I found some issues with validation, sharing, and sound options. Some placeholders and titles don’t appear fully. Besides, the user can add as many reviews as they want.
