Intelligent easy to the point
Charged me and I didn’t know it, it was supposed to be free!! 1/5
I downloaded the free app of 10% happier as my aunt who really is like a mother to me since I was a wee one ( she’s dying it’s horrible!)! So I had some friends tell me about certain free meditation apps this being one of them and with all the chaos and heartbreak that’s going on I didn’t even have time to use it than earlier this am I was paying my CC bill to find out that I was being charged for it ( without my knowledge!)!!!! To me if you advertise as free it should be and the person that recommended it was just as shocked as I was as they haven’t paid anything for it and have had it for sometime free so I really don’t get this and I don’t need the added stress at this time in my life it’s so disappointing to me that it said free and it was recommended as such and if I wasn’t paying my CC I would have never known! So I don’t recommend it because I feel that I was misled by the word free when I was searching for best free meditation apps I know that they offer a premium app but I figured by the recommendation I’d be happy with the free app but it’s not free and just added to the stress of everything going on and I never got a chance to try the free version I’m giving it one star because of my friends recommendation other wise I would give it 0 stars for being misleading!!!! Again I didn’t even have a chance to use it and now I’m just completely disappointed in this app I feel like it’s false advertising! Thanks so much for adding to my already stressful life! ( Obviously I’m being sarcastic or and snarky I just don’t think it’s right by any means!!!! )!!! I hope people who read this just beware! So sadly disappointed
I work in wellness. I also work in a high stress atmosphere. I have tried for decades to become a meditator with no avail. I read Dan's book & felt totally connected to how he felt & how he got to meditation. I got the app and now meditate (almost)every day. I still can't believe it. I have begun classes to become a meditation teacher. This is hands down the best app I've ever bought.
Life Changing 5/5
By Kyle McGrath 1989
Everybody need mentors on your journey through life. This is one of them. I’ve tried to meditate before but didn’t have the knowledge on how to do it daily.
This app brings meditation down from the clouds to earth, where everybody can use it.
This app is vastly more affordable than weekly class sessions. Everyday you are guided by a master.
It’s incredible the effect it is having on my life, after a few weeks I’m way more than 10% happier.
This is more than an app. It has the potential to change your life, if you are ready for such.
First time actually enjoying meditation 5/5
I have tried to develop a meditation practice before, with apps like calm and headspace. I have never really gotten what meditation is - the guides on those apps distracted me instead of focusing me. The teachers on this app are really first-rate and teach you all sorts of specific tactics that allow for successful meditation with or without the app. Highly recommend!!
Love this app. 5/5
So glad I made this investment in myself. This is a great app to learn and broaden your knowledge of different meditation techniques.
Very insightful and helpful 5/5
I have never meditated before and this has been rewarding right away. I do feel different during the day. I can’t quite describe the felling but calmer than i was. I tend to be high anxiety and I wanted something that would help reduce that. So far this program seems to be hitting the target for me.
$60 a year 1/5
1. It’s not free.
3. It will ask you for personal information to set up and personalize your account
4. After retrieving personal information and setting up your account it informs you that it is $60 a year.
Great meditation app 5/5
I love the app overall. Multiple world class instructors. Lots of variety to suit anyone’s meditation needs. I do both a 10% meditation and Sam Harris’ Waking Up almost every evening. My only complaint is I am doing the current 21 day challenge and it seems to bog the app. On several occasions I have seen network issues or everything is really slow. Not a single issue until the challenge started. Maybe lay off the challenges until the system is robust enough to support the heavy usage? Just a thought.
Didn’t get to try it 2/5
I’m not at all against trial subscriptions, but I prefer the kind that prompt for CC info after the trial instead of up front. See, if it doesn’t work and I accidentally forget to disable my CC info the app will have had the opposite of a healing effect by invoking anger, stress, and frustration.
Dan’s one minute meditation helped me to get started and overcome my fears about this practice. I’ve been going strong ever since! Great, user friendly app that keeps you motivated. Teachings are straight forward and foster “real world” application for meditation.
Mediation is extremely helpful 5/5
If you want to be a successful person (however you define that) this app is just perfect. It combines lessons that are quite easy to grapple with and offers a path to better secure control over your own mind. I have a neurological disease that is exacerbated by stress and this app is something that I return to each time my body begins to tingle with stress and my symptoms dissipate and I realize the control the mind has over my body. It’s a useful tool and while I was reluctant to pay the subscription fee, it pays for itself many times over.
My FAVORITE meditation app of ANY I have tried! 5/5
I am really enjoying learning to meditate for the first time (to clarify, this is not my first time trying to learn to meditate, it’s just the first time I find myself actually enjoying and looking forward to it each day)!! LOL I highly recommend this app over any of the others out there (trust me, I have tried them ALL). To explain, there’s nothing inherently wrong with the other apps, it’s just that this one feels so much more accessible and doable. Like you are not alone in this, if that makes sense? I find myself wanting to go back to it several times throughout my day...and I can! There are meditations for just about ANY situation or current mental state, and any amount of time available. I can’t really explain why this one works so well compared to the others, it just DOES! Please do yourself a favor and give it a try with the free one-week trial. You honestly won’t regret it!! :-)
Immediate benefits if you are ready:) 5/5
If you enjoy Dans perspective you will find this a great entry point to the world of meditation. It is simple and attainable and you will likely see benefits in your life quickly(if you are ready:)
This app is truly teaching me. I am grateful for both what it is trying to do and for what it has done.
More than just timed sessions 5/5
By Edgewood reader
I have tried out a lot of different apps and recorded programs over the years. I use mediations as a means to manage stress. This is the first app that has solid teaching and expert help. The videos with experts are really helpful and informative, providing much more value to the app. Totally worth the subscription for me.
The Real Deal 5/5
This here Man is absolutely amazing and couldn’t be more on point regarding the elements in our lives that we allow ourselves to consume ourselves so to say.... Thank you for sharing these truths and exercises to help me get a better understanding and confirm a few certain areas in my life that needed to be polished. [email protected]
Beginning meditation 4/5
I really liked the intro and then guided meditation, and though it seemed much too short a session it really seemed to work for me. I hope the Happiness App doesn’t lock potential clients (some free testing time to see if you like the program, then I think $50 a year to maintain it)
out of hearing the meditation more than once or twice. It’s supposed to work with Siri so you can try other beginning meditations, but I was completely unsuccessful. No matter how many times I told Siri to “play daily meditation, etc., the response was to re-record my phrase. No directions other than keep talking to Siri, so if this keeps up I will regretfully cancel this lovely app!
Finally, meditation made easy and real! 5/5
I’ve been trying to meditate for 20 years, with little success. I’m loving 10%happier for the grounded, simple, approachable, calming presentation of this practice. I look forward to it every morning (and that’s not been my previous experience!) and I feel like I’m truly learning how to integrate the practice into my daily well-being.
Beginners & experienced mediators will not be disappointed 5/5
Dan brings a refreshing and modern inquiry to an ancient practice. The teachers he “interviews“ in a conversational style are top notch. If you are just beginning or experienced like myself, this app will enrich your practice. Don’t hesitate to go premium, totally worth it for yourself.
Simple Easy Effective 5/5
I have try several methods and teachings of meditation and I like the explanation on what can and will happen before going into the meditation sessions.
The Best Meditation App I Have Tried - By Far 5/5
I have tried many meditation applications. This is the best one of I tried - by far. What makes it great it the meditation techniques are taught by experts in meditation. And there is a talk before each meditation explaining how it works and why it is useful to you. They really make the task of meditating much easier too.
Learning how to meditate isn’t easy but the exercise I’m doing everyday to teach me is wonderful
Like videos 5/5
Great intro on meditating.
Need more free sessions.
Love the variety! 5/5
Very helpful for mindfulness practice, and a very diverse program.
10 percent happier app review 5/5
I love it! Very helpful and interactive with your friends. I really love the New Years challenge. I say all good things. Love it!😁
Meditation 2019 4/5
By babygirl 19 61
I’m excited to start New year and a new chapter of my life was a new meditation or learn to focus on focusing I know I need this really bad in my life so I’m really excited please help me to download Facebook so that I can get this app I have a new phone and not even sure what kinda nd nor figure out my passcode right now because the guy at the store changed it I did not want to change it because I know my passcode and now I don’t and this is the reason why I don’t ever change it anyway I need to meditate on this thank you for your time and learning how to work it I’m not real computer savvy but I’m trying—about——-Tv—-no
Great app but so much has to be paid for 3/5
I’ve only been able to do the basics because the rest costs a ridiculous amount of money. I would appreciate more free content to see whether meditation is really a thing for me.
I never knew that this app is what I needed. Even though I am only 15 years old, this life can bring a lot of stress on a person. With the instructors with the soothing voices, to the plans set out for my focusing... I really enjoy this app.
Beyond 10% Happier 5/5
This app has tons of great guided meditations. Some of my favorites are by Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein. This app is helpful for new and seasoned meditators. Highly recommend!
Take a break 5/5
This is an excellent way to spend time on and for yourself. You are worth it!
10% happier 5/5
OMG 10% happier has been a life saver.I used to be stressed out a lot, but this app has helped me to cool down.
Solid option in a crowded field 5/5
Here’s what I can say for certain: 10% is a solid choice that will not disappoint.
Here’s what I cannot say: that is it head and shoulders above its competitors. Sorry, there are just too many really good meditation apps out there, and most are significantly cheaper.
But if you are looking for a tie-breaker in your decision making, here are a couple of things to consider. First of all, 10% brings the serious firepower with their meditation guides. There are no JV players on this bench. Second, I don’t believe any of the competing apps offer personal coaching like 10% does.
Again, it’s a crowded space. I like Insight Timer. I like Calm. I like Mediate.io. And I like Headspace — I’m currently using it alongside 10%. This app might be the most expensive, but it also offers the most. Hope that helps if you’re trying to pick one.
Life changing 5/5
This app has made a tremendous difference in one week. I would have to describe it as life altering in its ability to calm my brain and allow me to focus.
Worth every cent 5/5
By Chaz 19
Get it. Use it. You won’t be disappointed.
Great teachers! Great app! 5/5
By Silent Peace Walker
It works. Practice has allowed me to see the activity of my mind, and not be owned by the thoughts. I can now pause, look at them, and choose the best course of action. It has reduced my mindless, automatic reactivity. Now I am able to choose my responses rather than react in the middle of an emotional storm.
Great app for septic 5/5
By Ocean 99
If you don’t believe you can control your life, this app will help. It help me a lot.
Make everything so accessible 5/5
Being with Dan and Joseph makes beginning a meditation practice feel so accessible - from a “how do I fit this into my life?” sense all the way to a “how do I do this properly?” sense. Really enjoyed the Basics and looking forward to a lot more!
No iPad support 1/5
By N/A 1234
Are you kidding? What is there like 700 million iPads and growing?
Good for Regular Folks 5/5
I’ve been using this app for about a week now and already have noticed an impact in my life. I like how they combine lessons with the meditation sessions.
Subscription blew it. 1/5
By Ms. Pickles
What looks to be an amazing app is all locked up unless you’re interested in paying monthly. Yes there is a trial, but what’s the point if you’re not looking to pay for something you can do for free? I felt duped when I downloaded the app (after getting hyped the ads, great job marketing team) only to open it and learn I would not, in fact, be able to get the help promised without being charged. (Silly me.)
So many apps being ruined by the SaaS tech model. I’ll get my zen elsewhere, thanks.
Michele OBrien 5/5
By Missy OB
Brilliant, thoughtful people, with comforting, soothing voices. They are great when the world is spinning out of control. Good for my brain, heart, and soul. Bless them for caring so much.
Simple, great for starting out 5/5
This is a great app for starters like myself! It makes mediation simple, understandable, and broken down into bite size pieces, as needed.
I’ve tried a few other meditation apps and this one is the best! Well worth the monthly charge in my opinion. I love the additional talks and intro information on each session. Well done!
No monthly payment option 1/5
By Stefani Linn
Too expensive to pay for a year membership. I will only pay monthly and if less than $10 a month.
App wouldn’t respond 1/5
By Chitown Jamie
Tried to get this to load several times, with no success. Ironically stressful.
Meditation Practice 5/5
Extremely helpful! If you’re trying to start a meditation practice, or add some new skills to an existing regimen, jump on in.
I like 4/5
This is something new I thought I would try. I’ve been doing the free stuff. If this was a one time payment deal I’d do it in a heartbeat. But yearly subscription price is to much for me. I will definitely continue meditation. This has been a great learning experience. Thank you.
I love the approachable bite size chunks 5/5
I also appreciate the many different approaches available in the app. Starting my morning with a guided meditation in the morning as I wait for my water to boil has been great.
