We all need a bit of guidance at some point in our lives. Whether there’s a complicated issue we need help with or we’re in a rut and we don’t know what to focus on next, it always helps to have a bit of a push in the right direction. Life Guidance and Inspiration, developed by Stephanie Harrison, is an incredible app for iPhone and iPad that provides users with a sense of direction.
One of the things I’ve noticed about apps like Life Guidance and Inspiration is that there tends to be a bit of a stigma about them. The app definitely isn’t meant to be used as a fortune-telling tool, but rather as a way for users to concentrate on things that might be plaguing them.
Life Guidance and Inspiration features two types of readings. The first, Life Wisdom, aims to provide users with a bit of insight into problems they might be facing, as well as possible resolutions. The second type of reading, Life Direction, helps the user find support and concentrate on a particular goal.
Tapping on one of the readings in Life Guidance and Inspiration reveals a set of questions that you can choose from. All you have to do is select the question that best fits your current situation.
Example questions include “What is holding me back from living a happy and fulfilled life?” and “What will inspire and support me today?” You’re not limited to the default questions, though, and you’re free to create your own question.
Once you know what your focus is, Life Guidance and Inspiration asks you to shuffle the cards by either dragging your finger around the screen or shaking your device. Then, choose a card and read the description.
The best part about the app is that it is very intuitive and easy to use, so even if you’re not familiar with similar apps, you won’t be intimidated by a complex interface or instructions that are difficult to understand.
Life Guidance and Inspiration is available to download from the App Store for free, but there is a full version option for $2.99 that unlocks in-depth card readings, as well as a journal feature. The journal allows you to take notes, as well as keep track of all of your readings.
Overall, Life Guidance and Inspiration is a fantastic lifestyle app that doesn’t promise users the moon, but instead gives them an opportunity to meditate on issues or questions and find possible solutions.
Even if you’ve never tried an app like this before, I highly recommend checking it out because it’s so easy to use and it’s downright fun.
Life Guidance and Inspiration is also available for Android users via Google Play.
Life Guidance and Inspiration requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
