Mindfulness from your smart phone

I love the idea of the smart phone being a tool for mindfulness because it usually seems like the thief of quiet contemplation--the source of blinky games, click bait, and Facebook stories that make you rant grumpily in your head. 

Best Meditation Apps of 2016

My current favorite isn't even on this list.  I like the Enso meditation timer and bell because I don't like my phone telling me what to do (e.g. "Let your shoulders relax and feel the air coming into your nose.")

Ideally you want a meditation app that you don't find annoying. Plus, it rewards you with Enlightened Cat.

Do you have a smartphone app that helps you with keeping calm? Or do you have some great tips for San Diego meditators? I'd love to hear them!
