Normally $0.99.

The benefits of mindfulness span history around globe. From its ancient roots in the use of musical tones to achieve calmness and connection for mind, body and spirit, it is now renewed in the era of smartphone technology.

Welcome to U4Ea! We at amginE Ink are excited to offer you the next evolution of binaural beats – where mindfulness practiced the world over has been merged into a single app!

Just as the benefits of mindfulness can bring about psychological, emotional and physical health benefits, U4Ea delivers an experience that is as much about the journey as it is about the destination.

For the explorers of mindfulness, the multi-tasking meditators, the brain boosters, and anyone who wants to feel better, U4Ea offers a complement to your daily routines.

amginE Ink has connected the benefits of musical tones and chakra energy points in the body to transition less desirable feelings and sensations to a preferred state of mind or mood. Through U4Ea, app users are in control of how they want to feel and how they choose to approach interacting with the world around them.


U4Ea uses the technology of passive focus on audio tones, or musical notes through binaural beats. Binaural beats help you achieve desired states of consciousness while you sleep, relax, meditate, experience joy, and get motivated. Within minutes or even seconds, your neural pathways interact with the HUM you hear and set the stage for improved learning, work, response to stress, improved meditation, even more restful sleep.

Whether your subtle HUM blends seamlessly behind your favorite music and videos or plays alone, it is effective at any volume that you choose for your personal comfort.

To get started, all you have to do is answer three questions:
– How do I want to feel?
– What personal attributes do I want to boost?
– And… What am I preparing for?

Each question will give you a list of options you can select from organized by color, tone, chakra, and attributes. Our algorithm works behind the scenes to blend the frequency outcome. All together, there are over 350 combinations available to help you get to where you want to be.

Don’t worry. If you’re just getting started and your journey to mindfulness seems too heavy, we’ll be sharing popular “FrequentSies” like “Healing Sleep,” “Goodbye Hangover,” and “Workout Mojo” on social media.

But don’t listen to the meditation, relax, or sleep frequencies when you’re driving or operating heavy machinery!! And remember U4Ea encourages you to always follow the health and medical advice of your physician and treatment teams!! U4Ea works best as a compliment to your activities and routines. Please discuss any concerns with us or a health professional.


Once you’ve made your selections and press play, your HUM will begin in a few seconds. Enjoy the visual display! The colors have the same effect as your selected tones.

Under the Menu icon, you’ll see the options to play, pause, stop, and SHARE the U4Ea love on Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere you want to post a link ;-)

You’ll also have a detailed description of how your selected tones are working their magic for you!

Let us know how you like the app, either after you finish a session on U4Ea, with a review in the App Store, or anywhere you connect with us on social media.

We have lots more to bring you, so let us know what would make U4Ea even better for you.
