Submitted by dashersey
dashersey (751215) writes "CNET is covering an innovative iPhone app that helps its users become more happy and peaceful. It's an exciting redefinition of "personal" technology, taking advantage of the ever-present iPhone to bring us back to ourselves several times per day and help us "re-wire" our negative emotional habits.
