Post Apps for Panic Attack

Have any of you found any apps that are available for free on Google Play store to use in the middle of a panic attack to bring back calm?

There are plenty of apps you can use to track moods, but that's not what I'm looking for. I don't even know if quiet meditation/spa music will help. I also don't really want an app for breathing exercise.
I just want to hear things that I'd expect to hear from my best friend if she were next to me, helping me through this attack

I know it sounds like a tall order, especially if I don't even really know myself what will work!

I don't know about using it for panic attacks, but there is a app called Calm that has guided meditations, I find it good and relaxing

I was using positive magazine meditation anxiety. 7 cups of tea for anxiety.
