You Are A Circle: A Visual Meditation for the Creative Mind
This is technically not an app (can we call books, “apps with pages?”). You Are A Circle, was conceived and created by visual artist Guillaume Wolf, an expert in visual communication. The book is a ‘visual poem’. According to its author, the text works like a conversation about your creativity. It’s packed with a collection of aphorisms, and it encourages you to always evolve. It’s an invitation to live your best life. Get it here for $15.20.
