I did not develop the App myself. I am the project manager and the creative mind behind the Sensorium. Personally I had rough knowledge about HTML5 & VBA.
We used reactNative. The documentation is not yet complete a we sometimes wished. What we struggled most was the integration of the payment methods.

We started out in 2015 with the first version of it, that was pretty different. It has been a long way so far.
We wanted to create a Meditation App that sharpens the senses of the users. Meditation it self brings many benefits. Many people have synesthetic abilities that they are not aware of, such as seeing colors. We wanted to offer exercises to cater to users that want to expand their perception. Furthermore, people do not give attention anymore to the nature around them. So we implemented exercises to perceive nature more aware.
The need of the user is that they can access such sensory meditation exercises quickly and that they are not too long, as many have a busy life.
We differ from other meditation apps with our unique content that combines traditional meditation, nature awareness exercises, and synesthetic exploration.
Synesthesia is a neurological gift where several senses are coupled together. Many people have this ability, but most are not aware of it. We are the first to provide specific meditation exercises to discover and train these abilities.
This, in combination with nature awareness exercises that help to connect with the world around you, is a unique way of meditation.
We hope to bring is soon to iTunes and to fill in more content.
Implementing a habit of regular meditation is tricky. Keep meditating, every day if possible. It will have a very positive benefit on your life.
Guided Synesthesia Meditation is a combination of traditional mindfulness exercises, nature awareness techniques, and synesthetic explorations. It fits well for Beginners and advanced meditators as well. Practice 10 minutes per day and train your mind to be more in the present moment. Become aware of your senses in your daily life and nature. And you may discover Synesthesia and how to blur your sensory channels. Find better sleep and more calm, relaxation, and balance, while decreasing stress. Gain improved focus and a little bit of life quality as you sharpen your senses to perceive more of this beautiful planet.
Synesthesia: the mix-up of the senses
Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon. The perception of one sense triggers the experience of other senses. A sound may be perceived as shapes, letters, and numbers as colorful personalities and tastes as sound.
Many people resonate with synesthesia. And even though there are cognitive advantages* most are not aware of it. They miss the beauty and the benefits of experiencing the here and now. Maybe you too?
It is more than just another meditation app!
Mindfulness cultivates synesthesia
In our busy lives, the mind is continually chattering to us about the past and the present. We feel stressed, and often we are not aware of the sensory experiences in the present moment.
With Synesthesia Meditation you discover, train, and integrate synesthesia in your daily life. Increase your overall sensory awareness.
Regardless if you resonate with synesthesia or not, whether you're a meditation beginner or advanced, you benefit by reconnecting with your senses.
Make it a ritual to meditate 10 minutes per day. Increase your life quality*. You will feel the benefits within a week.
