Very good 5/5
By cima ^^ <3
Best meditation timer app I could find. Thank you.
I use this app daily 5/5
I find this an easy to use app for meditating, relaxing and breath work. The choice of meditation sessions, music and talks is tremendous and they are pretty easy to find and follow, although I do have trouble figuring out how to find the next in a series... I use the timer too. It is easy to use. I did recently sign up for a subscription so that I could download meditations so that I could listen during long flights, etc. I don't mind supporting an app that offers so much.
Best Meditation App I’ve found 5/5
After trying many different meditation apps I stumbled across Insight Timer. While the name didn’t stand out (it’s much more than a timer) the content is outstanding... high quality guided meditations with a category for every need, beautiful music, teachings, and a timer with a a variety of sounds. It even allows you to choose the time you want to spend on meditating. I already have bookmarked many, but my list keeps growing. I’m not sure how they keep this app free, but I really appreciate that fact. There are no ads either. This app is a joy to use. A big Thank You to the developers.
This app could bring world peace. 5/5
If I was stranded on a desert island with WiFi and could have only one app, Insight Timer would be it. I’ve been using this app for 5 months now and have been telling everyone I know about it. At one of the hardest times in my life ever, this app came along and has repeatedly taken me out of panic attacks, and soothed my anxiety in general. The best app EVER. Thank you beyond words to the developers and instructors 👏🙌🤟👍💖
This is one of the very best apps available.
Something for everyone, guaranteed.
Worldwide community with local nuance.
Extraordinary app! 5/5
This app has a wonderful selection of meditations for so many moods, emotions, and situations. Morning, midday and preparation for sleep are all represented. Sitting, lying down and even yoga movements are included. I started using the app almost two months ago and it makes daily practice helpful and enjoyable. Well done!
I’ve been using this app for years 5/5
Like the title says, I have been using this app on and off for year! I’ve tried other apps and always come back to this one. I used it before the current owners took over and the changes in the app continue to support and inspire my journey. When people recommend other apps, I turn around and offer this one and rave about it.
A long time ago a told a doctor about one of my life theories and she told me to look into Buddhism. From there I turned to meditation. It helps to control my symptoms better than most medications and there are no negative side effects! Since I’ve come back to the app lately, I love that I can find something that I need to work on in the moment by a simple search and that I can refer to my library. I also love that I can pick a guided meditation based on the amount of time I have to dedicate so that I don’t have to skip a day or I can go deeper if I have the time!
I love the evolution the app has taken and look forward to all that is yet to come. I will continue to tell people about this app. Thank you for such a great app!
Simple good 5/5

Mrs. C Gallagher 5/5
This is a Fabulous app... my youngest daughter told me of this app.
I absolutely love it.
I shared it with some friends and Doctors and now even my Doctors are sharing it with other patients.
I highly recommend it to anyone. No matter what issues you may have or if you simply want to relax more this app has an option for you.
Give it a try....I’m sure you will love it too❣️
Very Nice 5/5
Edit: I wrote the review below 3 years ago! Time flies when you're having a silent time! Anyway, I use the timer 98% of the time and I'm still not interested in another meditation timer. I like the direction the app's been taken and the developers seem very contentious. They've created a nice home base for a diverse set of practitioners. I'm sure they would appreciate any dana (generosity) you can spare for their efforts.
For the past 1,357 days I've never even wondered if there is a competing app. It's cool to see how many different communities/disciplines use the same software.
My favorite app 5/5
The amount of free content on insight timer is incredible. I love this app and use it almost daily. It definitely encourages me to meditate a lot more than I was on my own. And the sleep sessions are a godsend when I need to catch a nap during the day or get woken up in the night. Who knew I could get so much benefit from an app!
Extraordinarily helpful 5/5
Been using IT awhile. Very happy with it!
This app has helped me immensely. Great guided meditations! Great timer.
Very happy with this app 5/5
I have gotten a lot out of this app - it’s the one to which I most often refer my nutrition patients to begin a meditation practice. For those who are just beginning, guided meditation is particularly useful.
I’m not interested in the monthly subscription, but I would like to make a contribution. How can I do this?
Thanks for your great work.
Amazing Meditation App 5/5
Where to start? Content is expansive, covering everything from calming nature sounds to guided meditations dealing with difficult things ... to happy, everyday, setting intentions ... to learning different types of meditation ... to talks explaining meditation ideas and more. For the first time in my life, I have learned to quiet the never ending reruns of thoughts and ramblings in my head... It took me a year but the variety of meditations that got me through some bad times, good times and finding a direction, made it easy to continue trying and learning meditation. I am able to focus so much better and have recommended it to all my friends. I really like the recent improvements, looking forward to more updates.
Wonderful APP! 5/5
I love Insight Timer! There are so many different meditations and wonderful music. The variety is endless!
Great App That Keeps Getting Better 5/5
I’ve had the paid version of this app for years, use it almost every day, and love it
I wish I could give this app 10 stars!!! 5/5
By Rick Zayas
It's a great blessing. And it affords one some excellent guided meditations and teachings. Just wonderful!
Would Be Helpful 2/5
…to have a "loop"feature so the short, but pointed sessions can be repeated as often as meditator wants.
Think it the best in genre.
We save sessions that we personally want to sit with. Iterations end up burying our favorites behind a wall of social media, one of the very things we’re trying to get away from.
Stop cluttering up the start with what you want to sell us. “Keep it simple, stupid.”
Thanks for creating an amazing free resource 5/5
I love being able to see my history and progress
I love seeing the other meditators
I love the countdown timer sounds etc
Some of the notes in the comment section I'd love to see happen for example - the ability to go back a little bit without losing the whole meditation would be nice.
Ok that's all! Thanks
Free and Easy 5/5
This app is full of so many great features and community resources! It's really committed to connecting people to their practice and to each other!
This App has help me w my practice 5/5
I love everything about this app - it has made it easier for me to commit to my meditation practice. The community is beautiful. I would love to be able to donate a tithe to this developer for making something so necessary- so very accessible.
My note would be to add a donate button to the app - so we can further support your growth!!!
What a huge help! 5/5
By At One Ment
This is a huge help for the meditator that is trying hard to overcome the the constant external distractions to keep up a consistent practice! Love that there are options that range from silence to very subtle tones it guided meditations-all of who can be important at different times.
Excellent resource for meditation 5/5
Keeping track of meditation and prayer time through stats and journaling is a wonderful way to increase spiritual energy and presence. I love the Haiku poems group too.
Fantastic, just what I was looking for. 5/5
Simple app that times my meditation so I don’t have to check the time. I also like the streak tracking, it’s cool to see how long I’ve gone without missing a day. Also the social support feature is nice, makes you feel like you’re a part of something.
Great App! 5/5
When I meditate, then I use this app to track that. Lately I've tried out some guided meditations as well.
Thank you. 5/5
Raising consciousness is not an easy thing to do. I am proud of your efforts and wish you all the best.
Changed my life 5/5
Never has an app changed my life for the better! If you've been wanting to integrate a mindfulness practice into your life, Insight Timer is brilliant at helping facilitate that.
I grew up with a biblical practice of meditation, silence and solitude. 5/5
This app is helping me expand the horizon of personal and group practice. Thank you for this valuable resource!
Best app ever! 5/5
Open your mind and heart with this app. Thank you guys.
iPad landscape support 2/5
Despite nagging from the old Insight Timer for iPad app every time I start it, I have not made the change to the “universal” version of the app (this one). I always use the timer on my iPad in landscape mode, and the timer in this app always reverts to portrait (phone orientation). When this app is actually developed for the iPad, I’ll take another look.
Great timer 5/5
Great timer function with a good variety of soothing chime sounds.
Best meditation app 5/5
This is the best meditation APP out there. Wide variety of mediations . Recommended to me by my yoga teacher after a yoga Indra session. Amazed at what a wonderful resource this app has become. No purchases required🕉
Too much 2/5
I’ve been using this app for years and honestly it has just gotten too big. I don’t want yet another social medium, just a timer.
What a resource!! 5/5
I initially downloaded this app for the timer - a nice variety of authentic sounding bowls, blocks, and chimes. Fast forward four years and I'm continually blown away by the incredible amount and quality of the guided meditation content now available here! All for free!! With new recordings arriving each day, there's everything from basic breath work and mindfulness practices, to creative visualization and hypnotherapy, Yoga Nidra, meditations on specific topics (I've noticed everything from improving your ball game to having a healthy pregnancy!), children's meditations, meditations in a variety of foreign languages, music, and spiritual talks. While most of the offerings seem to be pretty secular, there are some which might appeal more specifically to people with backgrounds in Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and probably other religions as well. There's everything from world renown spiritual leaders to up and coming teachers from around the world. I've found some real gems here and have bookmarked many more than I'll probably ever get to as I keep coming back to some favorites. I haven't gotten into the social aspect of this app, but that is also there for people who want that. I do enjoy seeing the charts of my practice over time and feel more centered and able to cope with life as I enjoy realizing the personal goals I've set. Thank you!!
So grateful to insight timer 5/5
By Couldn't be more grateful
I began my meditation practice using insight timer and it's been almost 2 years: the graphs show my daily practice and the notices of milestones show how consistent I became. It appeals to the organizational part of me while the wide range of meditations appeal to my spiritual and emotional needs on any particular day. the sound healings are amazing: binaural and Solfeggio frequencies. I've been liking the guided meditations on chakra healing lately. Your new format makes it easier to find different meditations and talks. insight timer is a blessing. Thank you❤️🙏🏻
Best app 5/5
The most incredible app love it 💚🙏🏼💜🔥
A Powerful Tool for Inner Construction! 5/5
This is one of my finest purchases. Simply perfect for meditating with many great options. It's wonderful to watch the world meditating with you. What a beautiful way to join the collective spirits of souls who seek love and peace!
Insight Timer is a five star ++++++ app 5/5
I don’t usually write reviews, maybe I should say “I never write reviews” because I’m too busy, too this too that. Insight timer and it’s contributors have helped me live life instead just being alive.
Simple app in the beginning, but they’re making changes that are great. I love that they and the teachers work on donations and I hope everyone who uses this app donates even a little, because this is the type of a community app project that is needed in this messy f’d up world :o
I can’t say anything more but thank you to all who made Insight possible!!! Well, I think I’ve said enough. 5*’s +++++****
Timer fades to black 4/5
I've used this meditation timer for years in my personal yoga practice and my meditation practice. I would've given it 5 stars up until a few months ago. It's quite frustrating to me that in the newest iteration the screen fades to black (like an iPhone /iPad timer -useless) at about 4 minutes into my session. This happens automatically , without touching the screen to "hide timer". For my yoga practice I need to see the timer count down so that I can pace myself appropriately. Since this happened, I've searched for other timers that might work, but none have the 'bells' option that I love or the beautiful feel. I also have enjoyed a few the various meditation guides offered, but typically go into my meditation without the spoken guide. Thank you for this beautiful product, but please, let us see the timer again.
Excellent meditation app! 5/5
I meditate as much as Possible. Insight Timer opens a world of choices for teachers, topics, etc.
Best meditation app! 5/5
After downloading 8+ "free" apps I found this one. It's amazing. So many actually free guided meditations and a really nice meditation timer. I have found several music tracks that are perfect for my morning or evening routines and so many new times of guided meditations to try. Sure not every single one is life changing to me personally but at least I didn't have to shell out a buck to figure that out.
Great for beginners and beyond 5/5
I started using Insight Timer when I went through a tough time and haven’t looked back. It is everything I need - a meditation timer, thousands of guided meditations by some of the world’s preeminent teachers, choices of different communities of meditator with whom to interact and so much more.
Each update makes it worse 3/5
This used to be my favorite app of all time. Unfortunately, with each update, it gets worse. It has become more difficult to use, and can now be quite glitchy. This is deeply unfortunate. The basic concept-connecting meditators all over the world, is superb. But I find that the most recent updates have made it difficult to connect with other people. Really too bad
Great way to develop a sustainable practice 5/5
This app is a gem! With it, I'm able to meditate whenever I want using a wide variety of guides, I can connect to a community of meditators, or design my own meditation with the timer. Many of us can't afford a subscription to Headspace or Calm, and this provides a lovely alternative.
Best Meditation site! 5/5
The updates to Insight Timer have been great. It is wonderful that they listen to what the customers want. So many great meditations and teachers.
Wonderful resource for those who wish to go deeper! 5/5
No complaints. Only praise for this amazing app.
Best meditation timer I've found 5/5
Great sounds and preset control
Great guided meditations.
My wife and I can hold each other accountable due to social element
One of three apps I use daily 5/5
A simple, elegant tool to support positive living
