This week I'm going to let you know about an app that is causing a bit of controversy between parents and their kids. It's an app called I-Doser. The premiss of this app is that you purchase 30-40 minute musical tracks that aim to simulate specific mental states through the use of binaural beats. Basically, what it does is send two different tones played into opposite ears which creates a beating sensation in the brain. Many of the track names are named after illegal recreational drugs.
Bloggernews.net calls the app, "A Legal Alternative to Illicit Drugs." They also say I-Doser claims that drug addicts can use these tracks to supplement their drug addictions and break them. I think that claim might be a little steep, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.
I haven't, myself, downloaded this app because of the lofty price of $4.99 on iTunes. And I'm not going to encourage buying it either, but I thought I'd give you heads up on what all the, "cool kids" are doing nowadays.
Until Next Week,
