The iPhone as a self improvement tool? Well, why not? I use my iPhone for lots of things, to keep in touch, to stay on task, to check email, to listen to music, even game. And let’s face it, the apps are fun! Chances are if you’re an iPhone or iPod Touch user like me, you have the device on you or nearby at all times.
Why not use it to assist with personal growth? Over the past few months I’ve downloaded a bunch of apps in this area to see which ones I’d use and recommend to others. Not sure where to start looking? Here’s a list of 25 iPhone apps I’ve found useful (with links to the app in the iTunes Store) to give you some ideas:
Meditation & Relaxation Apps
A simple timer with sounds and settings for meditators. Use it for meditation or just use it to take a set time out and relax (by SimpleTouch)
|Brainwave Binaural Beats
Binaural beats programmed for positive mood boosts, concentration, creativity and more to background tracks of ocean waves, rain and thunder (by Banzailabs).
Buddha boxes are given out at temples. This app has different mantras and chants that you can listen to from Buddhist monks (by DigitalBlend).
|AmbiScience BrainPower: Meditate
Ambient music with isochronic tones and binaural beats for deep mediation with stop timer. Choose tone levels and frequency, start and stop timers (by TeslaSoftware).

Choose a card with wisdom from the book, make notes on concepts and select from various meditations (by NaturalGuides).
Set the timer before you sleep to hear sounds from categories like nature, life, and musical instruments (by Sign Studios).
