Calmaria 2.0 App Design and UI/UX Preview

Explore the newly refined with new app design to aid relaxation and anxiety relief, now with enhanced UI/UX including stats

This week, I had some free time and managed to finish the new version of my breathing app,, starting with iOS and soon moving on to Android. Including a new app design with improved UI/UX including different themes, statistics and some easter eggs.

I initially created Calmaria at the beginning of the pandemic as a way to cope with anxiety. At that time, I was just starting to learn SwiftUI, and my routine primarily involved searching for answers on various websites, especially Stack Overflow. Often, the solutions I found were similar to my problem, but not exact. Consequently, I spent a lot of time translating these solutions and trying out different variations. Back then, I had no AI to assist me. Now, four years later, things have changed dramatically. With AI's help, I was able to rewrite the code to include the features I wanted, such as synchronization between watch and phone, different themes, and more scalable code. Moreover, I accomplished this in a fraction of the time it used to take.

The process has been incredibly educational, and as a designer, it has enabled me to experiment more, I can spend way more time refining how things look, feel and work, focus on craftsmanship and, most importantly, to discard ideas that looked promising in mocks but did not translate well into the product.

I can also reuse many other experiments I've done in the past. For example, the homescreen uses the concept of circles moving based on the device's gyro movement. I did that last year and reused it for this one. Now, I want to add more themes or even open it so people can play with SwiftUI and send their themes as well.

To add a fun element to the discussion, I don't know if designers should code or not, but I do have fun building my ideas.

Here’s a little preview before it goes live in the next coming days.
