I have not bought the subscription but this app is still amazing! Every time I use it I feel in touch with my body and mind. Highly recommend for busy people that need a break
Life changing 4/5
My 1st time learning to meditate.
Easy to use app. I love it & plan to use it every day. I just wish there were more free options. The majority of it all is paid.
Too many pop-ups! 👎👎👎 1/5
This used to be my favorite meditation app.
Every time I open the app now, there’s a pop-up message at the top of the home screen telling me that my “Premium subscription has ended”. I’ll go to check my stats and there’s a pop-up to “upgrade to Premium”. I’ll complete a meditation and get a pop-up asking me to “upgrade to Premium” and another to try these other meditations that are for “Premium members only”.
I’m tired of it.
Why so many pop-ups, Simple Habit? I get that you’re trying to boost subscription sales, but must you use this many pop-ups to do it? Surely, there are better and more effective ways to meet your sales goals.
I’ve used this app for over a year and was well aware of the fact that my Premium subscription ended a long time ago, so I don’t need to be reminded of it daily.
This is supposed to be a meditation app aimed to calm it’s users, not annoy them with numerous pop-ups asking them to upgrade after every meditation. 👎
A great addition to my new life 5/5
Short meditations, only 5 to 7 minutes, but what a huge difference this app has made in my new search for joy and inner peace.
There is plenty of free content to try out, but much more available with a paid subscription.
Good and easy to follow 5/5
Really good me easy to follow
Great, but... 4/5
By XoXo, N.
Everyday’s a struggle for me. I deal with anxiety, stress, and I personally consider myself on the verge of being depressed. Today, I decided I should try and do something about it. I downloaded this app in hopes that it could enlighten my mood, and be my shoulder to lean on when I need a little comfort. I wasn’t disappointed when I opened the app. It’s organized, and I love the format of everything. I adore how there’s an on the go feature, and most of it is speaking, so if panic/anxiety strikes in public just put on your headphones and calm down instantly. I would LOVE to give this app 5/5 stars, because frankly I think it deserves it. But, there’s one problem. You have to spend money to buy a lot of the calming aspects of the app. Music, stories, and ASMR are all things you must purchase, as there are only 1-2 free options. I really believe this app has a lot of calming properties, and I really do like it, I just don’t think it’s right to pay a ridiculous amount of money for one application. As if I think it is worth downloading? Yes. If you need a slight bit of relaxation, or just a relaxing podcast you can listen to on your way home from work, this is the app for you. If you’re looking for an app with super reasonable prices that you find yourself wanting to open every single day for a large amount of time, I frankly wouldn’t reach for this app. But I love the concept, and I just think if this were to be fixed, I would love this app that bit more.
Enjoyable, simple, and helpful. Thank you😉
5 min Meditation - AWESOME!!! 5/5
This is a great app I love the fact that most of the meditations are only five minutes, some are longer. I also enjoy the fact that you have different people giving different types of meditation. Keeps the process new and refreshing. Great job!!
Bombarded by upgrade reminders 2/5
Pricey upgrades disappoint, and constricts an otherwise nice app.
Really nice 5/5
I've only been using it a few days but I actually look forward to doing a short meditation when I first wake up. The interface is absolutely beautiful, if that kind of thing is important to you. Even with all the other meditation and mindfulness apps out there I plan to stick with this one at least for now.
Now I've been using it daily for 3 months and I still love it. My suggestion would be to add more than just one option for background noise. Currently it's a laughing bird. Listen and you'll understand. Also, sometimes 5 mins isn't enough. Some of the sessions allow for 10-15 min "extensions" but not all. I'd like to see longer options for all sessions.
Anxiety begone! 5/5
Well almost haha. That part of me will never go away, but I have found in this app I have much better control of it. I’m actually falling asleep quicker which has been a struggle for me since I was a child. Thanks so much simple habit.
Wanted to love this... 1/5
Really wanted to love this, but the free version gives you a very, very, very, very, very SMALL and limited version of the app. I’m not committed to paying for a full year or pay for a month (and forget to cancel) without knowing if I’ll actually and truly use the “unlocked” version. The paid/unlocked version has many titles/subjects I would like to try, but certainly not going to pay for it without knowing if I’ll use it. Why can’t you do a 7 day trial of the paid version for free? Then make people pay for it. I really wanted to love this. But the free version is worthless and every single session seems to be the EXACT same. Breathe in for 3 seconds. Out for 3 sends. Feel your stomach rise up and down. I can do that for free too. Thanks for the help.
Never been interested in meditation before, but this is very soothing 4/5
I think the subject line pretty well describes my reaction. The speaker's voice is calming and reassuring, and presents a was reasonable, realistic approach to meditation. I feel I am benefiting from these daily mini-sessions.
I only wish I could afford full access. I think it's very reasonably priced. It's just that I am unemployed and disabled, and simply don't have the money. (I apologize if that's TMI!)
Lots of Variety 5/5
By BRP Cathy
This subscription service is superior to other meditation apps I've downloaded. This one allows you to choose topics and teachers, tracks your use, provides feedback, and more. Very flexible with lots of variety!
Meditation made simple 5/5
I really enjoy how easy it is to meditate with this app. It's super easy to navigate through and it has tons of topics to choose from.
Would 101% recommend this app to anyone! 5/5
I love this app! Its my first day and I feel so great! Even with the stress throughout the day, this will help me with school. 11/10
Simpl Habit 5/5
I love the app and purchased a membership that lasts a full year, two days after using it!
Very expensive subscription for the good stuff 2/5
Great concept, but I really wish it wasn’t a subscription service for the premium items, by paying per month or year. There is a very limited number of free basic meditations.
While you may think that this will earn you more money in the long run, I think you’re actually losing more customers. This is very different than a music subscription where you are paying for access to millions of songs, as you only have access to a limited number of meditations.
I would be willing to pay for the premium services, but as a one time fee, not a recurring fee. It would be nice to pay per premium meditation (or category of medications, such as sleep) and be able to use it as long as you wish.
Practice really makes perfect 5/5
I have noticed a drastic difference in my ability to turn off my brain and relax before falling asleep. I have only tried the sleep meditation cycle so far, but I can’t wait to try more of them!
A much-needed daily mini-escape! Awesome! 5/5
Great teachers, easy-to-use app. Love it!
Really fantastic app. I can't imagine how I've ever lived without it. The membership is worth every penny. There is a huge ever-increasing selection of meditations. All the teachers are excellent, and I try to listen to all of them. Though, I cannot be more thankful to have discovered Cory Muscara and Amandine Roche. They've really improved my work and personal approaches and truly alleviated my Manhattanite stress levels. Fantastic.
Great app! 5/5
I'm a teen with generalized anxiety disorder, I first saw this app on Shark Tank, and I thought it looked interesting so I decided it to give it a try, and all of the meditations are great! I do have a suggestion, since it's hard for me, and I'm sure others too, to get data in certain places, with the premium subscription maybe you'd be able download your favorite meditations on your phone when there's no access to wifi or data? But overall an excellent especially for people with anxiety such as myself!!
So far so good! 5/5
Just completed day 3 and I really like this app. I’m looking forward to day 4 and many more!!
I am grateful for this app and the free sessions! 5/5
By The Orher Brother
I just started since I saw it on Shark Tank. I desperately needed a way to calm me life, and this has helped me so much! I wish I could afford the premium, can see it is well worth it! For now, the free is great though! Thank you for caring so much!!!
Don’t waste your time 1/5
Your first 7 days are free, then it’s big dollar . I watched them on shark tank trying to swindle sharks ! I don’t blame shark tank for wasting there money
Good, however some problems. 4/5
By xray dog
The timing seems to be off, I did a 10 minute unguided meditation, yet it only played for about 7. I also don’t think there are enough 1 day meditations, or meditations in general, the other apps like calm, and headspace have more, for about the same, or cheaper price. Also the commercial for your app in the beginning of every meditation isn’t necessary at all, I don’t understand why that’s there. Overall what we have so far is decent and far from the best meditation app, but there’s not too much needed to make it better. good luck!
Truly awesome app 5/5
This is a wonderful app to motivate and keep you on track to meditate daily. I look forward to my meditation during my morning and evening commute. It centers me. It's so easy with this app. I tried meditation pod casts. It's not the same as having a more structured yet flexible approach through this app. It's worth every penny. I feel so much better.
The shark tank deal didn’t last as long as it said it would 3/5
I immediately downloaded this app after watching shark tank because I hated the way she was treated and I think meditation and mindfulness is so important. I wanted to buy the membership because there’s hardly any options on the app without being a member and I really loved what limited options were available. I decided to give it a few days before I purchased a membership and figured I had time for the special shark tank deal (because it told me I had 4 days). Last night the app told me I had 2 days left for their special shark tank deal ($5 something a month) but now today it’s saying its back to its regular price :( it didn’t give me the 2 days it said it would. Really bummed about that as I was planning on purchasing the app right now but I can’t really justify spending 90 something bucks on this right now. The 60 dollar range fit my budget more. So I’m disappointed about that but the app is very nice and I can see why it will help people.
Meditation has helped me tap into something 5/5
Thanks to this app, I’m finally understanding the importance of meditation. I’ve always meditated irregularly throughout the years but doing it for at least 20 minutes each day has opened up a completely new level of consciousness. I’ve only been doing it for 12 days in a row and I’m already starting to see the world with more purpose and love. 2 weeks ago I would have never imagined that meditation could have shifted my perception this much. Thank you simple habit. You have changed everything for the better.
Really good 5/5
It's a great app
Great idea. Ok content. 3/5
Trained in TM and been meditating for a few years now. Was excited about this when I saw it on Shark Tank. A little disappointed. As many have reviewed. Very little content before you toss down a credit card. Sure, if you add it up, maybe it's 12 hours, but much won't be relevant to most. $10 a month for solid content is worth every penny, but I can't tell from the free content. To the developers, great start. You need far more comtent and add in a timer with features and white noise for those who don't need guidance. Toss on a 30 day trial and if your content is good, people will not cancel.
Kathy Walters 5/5
I am 55 & bought simple habit for myself. Each 5 min session makes me feel like I have had a half hr nap. Thank you for making short guided meditation sessions do easy!!
Love it! Does it's job! 4/5
I really do enjoy this app. I just wish that it had more options that were free instead of having to pay for every little thing. But I understand people need to make money. I would definitely recommend it to friends.
First review I've ever written 5/5
To be honest, I sometimes read reviews of apps, but I have never written one. I just started college this year, and I have anxiety and ADHD. This app helps me soooo much with both! If you struggle with traditional meditation of being able to just instantly wipe negative thoughts from your mind, this app is for you! Try it!
Tools for happiness 5/5
More than a meditation (think of nothing type of guide), this app gives you short and focused goals to be happier and become a better person while it puts you in the zone to strive for it. Highly recommended.
Thanks Shark Tank 5/5
I approached this app by watching shark tank. I have been listening to the sleep meditations every night and oh my goodness. Even if I don't have a device to listen to them on, I have learned the breathing techniques which really help me to relax. I love this app 10/10, would recommend
Appealing Topics 5/5
I won’t speak about the wonderful benefits of meditation here, rather the app itself.
Membership: I currently am on month 2, sticking with month to month, rather than annual (but wish I paid for lifetime when it was offered!) I now can see myself continuing to use this in the far future had I purchased the lifetime. But for now, I’m not quite in a daily ritual yet, so I will see how disciplined I can be before purchasing annual membership.
Sound: Some voices sound more genuine and soothing than others, that sound like they are reading a script. I found a few teachers I like, and glad I can filter a search for their recordings. The background doesn’t have any variety to choose from. It’s rainforest sounds or nothing at all. Not a deal breaker but I’d like other options.
so many opportunities whether you have the membership or not
Half baked 1/5
The app design doesn't appear to be well thought through. For example, the sleep meditations start with an upbeat music and unnecessary welcome message. It ends with another unwelcome distracting message and music.
This app is literally amazing best meditation relaxation app
I love this app but need help with something! 5/5
By Its boomski
Love the app -blessed to have found it and happy to share it wit
Also - kudos to the on-top of things and always helpful help desk! Thanks guys, this app adds value to my life! Namaste.
Absolutely love this app. I'm grateful to the creator of it, honestly.
Love the app, but... 3/5
Use the app daily and love it! Paid for the yearly subscription which said it includes all meditations... but then got an email saying “Congrats you’ve unlocked 2 weeks of free premium” I paid for them for a year! Really hope this is a glitch!
Love it. 5/5
It’s easy and on the go. It’s like having a personal instructor with you at all times.
Love the app 5/5
Makes Meditating a Simple Habit! Need to add a moving meditation session.
Good Timing 5/5
I have been super stressed at work and had given some thought to incorporating meditation to help with sleep and anxiety.
I saw the episode of Shark Tank and thought a free app is the best way to start.
The voices are great and I don’t feel silly doing the meditations.
Sleep has been better. I would def buy the premium if I wasn’t so broke. I’m looking forward to trying some of the other meditations out for focus and anxiety. As a free app I feel there a lots of options. it’s great to see the so t hold everything back for premium.
Best Meditation App... 4/5
Best meditation app I've come across thus far. Some meditation apps take away the freebies. Not this one. I found the Simple Habit Faculty to be top notch and most of the meditations and meditation series to be top notch as well. The app is organized in a way that supports one to meditate. It is also a bit more comprehensive than other meditation apps I've used in the past year.
So good 5/5
This app has changed my life. Thank you so much.
Amazing product.... but it’s super expensive 4/5
I really love the app but I’m dreading the end of my two week premium trial. I’m a disabled college student on a fixed income, so $12 per month is pretty rough. You should consider offering a student discount - I think Simple Habit could improve the lives of many college students, if only they were able to afford it.
Well Done! 5/5
