- About Solace (explanation and instructions)
You may either choose text by category, or allow a random selection especially for you. Optionally you can have the app open immediately to a random selection, as a "thought of day", and the text may be either autoscrolled or allow you to scroll manually.
The app contains a collection of original passages of text composed especially for this application, inspired by Eckhart Tolle, Torkom Saraydarian, J.Krishnamurti and other teachers of the Ageless Wisdom. There is no religious content, but it is intended to be spiritually refreshing and stimulating. The text is non-trivial - it encourages you to explore deeply, inspires you to overcome your limitations, and provides comfort and self-empowerment in times of need.
The background pictures of nature are beautiful, peaceful and inspiring, complementing the tone and mood of the text. Users are encouraged to take the time to absorb the meaning of the text and apply it to their own lives.
The app has deliberately slow and elegant transitions from item to item - to encourage the user to become more still and focused, and thus become more receptive to the deeper meaning of the words.
* Optimised for iPhone 5
