After eight 15-minute sessions — 77 % of patients in a CBM study were cured of Social Anxiety Disorder.(Schmidt, 2009)
Anxiety Mint uses Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) to reduce anxiety.
Studies have shown that CBM can be just as effective as talk therapy and medication in reducing anxiety.
CBM is based on the idea that people who suffer from anxiety tend to have an attentional bias towards threatening information. For example, in a room full of people, an anxious person will likely focus on the one person who gave them an awkward, ‘unfriendly’ look.
CBM works by altering these negative attentional biases. It achieves this with a simple yet highly effective program which encourages the user to focus on positive information.
During the Cognitive Bias Modification session, 4 images will appear on the screen - 3 negative images and 1 positive image. You must try to tap the positive image (smiling face) as quickly as possible. Points are awarded for speed. As you learn to seek out and focus on the positive information you will begin to notice a decrease in your overall anxiety levels.
You can adjust session length in settings. You should try to complete about 15-20 minutes of Cognitive Bias Modification exercises per week. This can be reduced to a maintenance level of 5 minutes per week once you have your anxiety under control.

Fewer ambiguous faces would be nice It's a good app but a lot of the faces are very ambiguous and this can be confusing. Often the positive face is so ambiguous that one of the negative faces looks happier. Some of the faces look weird and hard to interpret to me- this may be a cultural difference thing.
Paid for this only to find out it doesn't work. Sent an email to the developers and never got a response. Glad I paid for an app I can't even use!
Good idea needs polishing This app worked well on my hudl 2 but I'd like more different happy faces and for them to be obviously happy - a couple of the 'happy' ones look a bit negative to me. Or is this deliberate?
Broken Great app but I downloaded lollipop and its stopped working
Good app, but doesn't work with Lollipop! Please fix this soon, as I've found it otherwise very useful!
No work Installed on nexus 10 with lollipop. Fails to open
Professional Looking Easy to use and understand. Would it be possible to have an option to increase the grid size to 4x4 as well?
Very good Occasionally 4 negative images come up. Not sure if you are supposed to skip that frame
Love the app Some faces are really ambiguous, though. Another nice thing would be a time spent per day diagram!
Good Great tool but the last score displayed is the same as the best score displayed. Please fix. Could we get some kind of history of scores or a statistical read out or graph to display progress. We paid for this app after all!
Broken on android lollipop Upgraded my phone to lollipop and app no longer install
how do i get started? how do I start the eight minute sessions?
Good while it lasted Like the majority of other reviews it stopped working after update. Only had it for 2 weeks. Refund please.
The app worked for a while and I really liked it but I upgraded the software on my phone and now it doesn't work....
Waste of money I bought this app and it never worked. I reinstalled it several times but nothing. Too late for a refund. Just stay away from it, so you won't lose your money.
Android 5.. No Bought while watching documentary which touched on CBM, then read your note.... Please fix ASAP!
Useless - wish I read the reviews Many of the "smiling" faces are not of people smiling at all. Defeats the purpose of the game. Other apps have clearer photos. The game times out because you can't find anyone smiling! This is not because I am pessimistic or something read other people's reviews they will say the same thing! Requested a refund. Update your smiling photos guys. This is useless.
