SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Simple Habit, the leading daily stress relief platform for busy people,

has been named the 2018 winner of the Google Material Design Award for Best Experience. The Best Experience Award is the award recognizing creative and effective deployment of interaction, navigation and content in service of an impactful user experience:

Learning how to slow down and de-stress requires an equally tranquil interface; from first tap, Simple Habit Meditation opens up with an easy onboarding experience —which employs color-coded, selectable image cards to support the calming, purposeful navigation. It uses a dark theme effectively, with cool implementation of cards and bottom navigation, branded typography, and subtle motion cues across mobile devices and tablets.

"We're honored that Simple Habit is recognized as a best-in-class platform by Google for a second time this year," says Yunha Kim, Founder and CEO of Simple Habit. "At Simple Habit, we are committed to helping people live better every day. We offer a library of more than 1,500 short meditations and audio therapy sessions from world-class experts. As we continue to expand our content library, it's imperative that Simple Habit users are able to quickly and effortlessly find the perfect meditation to reduce daily stress or overcome whatever situation they may be facing."

The Google Play Awards celebrate achievements across nine categories. The Material Design Awards honor the product teams that bring the Material platform to life. These best-in-class examples showcase the flexibility of Google's adaptable design system by making it uniquely their own across four distinct categories – innovation, expression, experience and adaptation. The winners were selected from hundreds of open nominations and will be honored at SPAN Helsinki on November 1st.

"Listeners use Simple Habit to deal with a variety of problems that strongly affect their experience of everyday life," adds Valentin Drown, Lead Product Designer of Simple Habit. "When designing the app, our goal was to build an intuitive navigation experience that allows users to quickly and easily discover the right meditations for their particular situation or problem. Now, thousands of meditations by hundreds of teachers are easily accessible in a minimal number of touches."
