  • This got me through some tough times

    By stylerpo
    I was traveling frequently for work and having difficulty winding down at night. Constantly being in new places with new noises, dealing with the stresses of work, and ever present delays/reschedules that came with travel would have my mind racing! Sleep would not come no matter what sleep aids I tried and It affected my performance. I came across this little gem by “chance” in the middle of the night while looking for a white noise app. I cannot believe the difference it has made for me! It is simple to use, helps me settle down, and also brings me back to mindfulness every time I use it. I am ever grateful for this coming into my life at a desperate time and continue to appreciate it even after things have settled down. Thanks!
  • This is the one

    Searching for a guided meditation app that did not require a subscription (like $69/year). Having tried many, the voice of the woman guiding the meditation is pleasant and gentle. I like that the app offers the choices of duration with the minimum of 5 minutes. It is uncomplicated and refreshing.
  • Very simple to use

    By Scrum ray
    Many apps want you to create an account or to pay more for more options. This app is very simple to use. You can get started without much fuss.

    I find the app easy to use. Relaxing to slip away.
  • Great for quick relaxation when stressed from work

    By Neil's review
    As a beginner to meditation, this app is great because it guides you as much or as little as you wish. I use it mostly for quick, 5-10 minute meditations, usually when I’m feeling overwhelmed by work or personal stress. Also, after having used it for a few years, I get benefits from the app even when I’m NOT using it! For example, it’s trained me to understand how not to feel over-stressed by negative thoughts, instead letting them flow through me but not having me absorb the stress. That last sentence will make more sense once you try the app! My favorite use of it: set for 5 minutes, with the voice guidance plus the “stream” sounds. I lie on the floor on my back with my arms and legs stretched out (“dead man’s pose” in yoga). It’s been a real treat to my body and mind!
  • Truly Simply

    By Malnich
    I like this app because it is straightforward and easy to use. Other meditation apps can have too many bells and whistles for my needs.
  • Simple and free

    By RARyan
    You can chose to meditate for 5, 10, 15, 20 or 30 minutes. The music and narrator are so relaxing. I always feel refreshed after.
  • Great App

    By DirtSquirrel123223
    I bought this app to try meditating and immediately fell asleep listening to it. I tried it again and again with the same result. Now, I’m not sure that’s what the makers intended, but I don’t care because now I use it to fall asleep fast. Usually within 10-15 minutes. I recommended it to my girlfriend (now wife) who had trouble falling asleep and she immediately found that it out her to sleep. This app works wonders to help you relax, clear your mind, and fall asleep. I recommend this app to anyone who’s mind races when trying to fall asleep. Worth every penny.
