Balance: Meditation & Sleep app reviews

  • First Session was short yet interesting and helpful. 4/5

    By ReluctantTechno
    Unable to make it SEND! 🙁😩☹️
  • Educational meditation app 5/5

    By Mel Riely
    Balance breaks down the fundamentals of meditation in a way that makes meditation less daunting. It also caters the education to your level/ interests. Other meditation apps I’ve used don’t have that feature. Aside from the education part, there ar many meditations to explore with different focuses. This is very helpful.
  • Really good guide for starters 5/5

    By Baked Bean Joseph
    Really helped me get into meditating and is a really really good guide
  • Says Bad internet connection a lot 5/5

    By Sherritoo2
    Does not load. Says bad internet connection. My internet connection works fine. Deleted n reloaded. Nice app if it would work.
  • Suggest for everyone 5/5

    By Brownie Bite 74
    I’ve used this app for 3 days and have felt an overall calmness and control of my emotions. It has helped me control my anxiety and the sleep portions have helped me get to a calm and relaxing night of rest.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By tytop234
    One of the best meditation apps out there!
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By like thr app
    I can’t express enough how much I love this app. If you’re trying to make healthy lifestyle changes, this app will help you achieve that goal! I use it everyday, sent the link to my friends and family, and signed up for a lifetime subscription!! This app is a game changer!
  • Must have In Meditation 5/5

    By sthrnchrm34
    Best meditation app on the market! As a therapist I encourage all my clients to use!
  • Great progressive way to learn 5/5

    By Skepple1
    This app is amazing for providing guidance on how to meditate. Starts with the basics and expands on that. If you are looking to begin a practice but don’t know where to start, look no further!
  • Too slow 3/5

    By revoee
    there are times where the narrator takes 45 seconds to simply explain a basic concept, and other times where they ask a ton of questions to try and understand where i’m at. id rather have an option to select i’m a beginner/intermediate and have some direction, but not 45 seconds of explaining what the definition of gratitude is. after receiving the definition, the dude just kept saying relax and barely talked for 3-4 minutes, i got so bored and couldn’t relax because nothing was happening, why wasn’t he leading me towards gratitude?? some sessions work great but others are a complete waste of time and makes it hard to want to do it daily. i’ll probably start working towards doing on my own or finding a content creator that does a better job and is more focused on what i want. 3/5 and i definitely wouldn’t pay for the subscription had it not been free for a year
  • This is one of the few good things I love 5/5

    By judy1234!
    Hi. I struggle with anxiety, depression and ADHD, making it kinda difficult to work, sleep, etc. So I tried this like many apps, thinking it would be one of those other meditation apps. But it’s a great reminder in my day! I tried other apps and they just had mediation. This app has vibration meditations, body scans, it’s great. I highly recommend this to anyone who is dealing with metal issues. It really makes me feel better, thanks Balance! P.S. To me, Leah sounds better than the guy voice. ( I forgot his name ) He kinda sounds creepy, sorry dude… Jules <3
  • It’s a good concept in theory… 3/5

    By ryanokee
    The concept is great— an app that alters how it connects with you depending on your needs. But, I found the facilitators talking too much throughout, which made it difficult to go deeper. I also noticed that concepts were lightly touched on rather than more deeply practiced— the advance pack, for example, had only two days of lovingkindness and one day so far of spotlighting. Something like headspace would have ten days of lovingkindness. I hope adjustments to these to areas are made
  • Balanced! 5/5

    By andress_chris
    There are many many many wonderful and beautiful meditation apps out there, but none has helped me stick with the practice like Balance has! It’s so well thought out and well, balanced! You should really give it a try!
  • Jumbled thoughts 5/5

    By NoCookies10
    Ever feel like you may have adhd but we’re never diagnosed? This helps. It helped me with the symptoms at least.
  • Great for beginners to mediation! 5/5

    By everythingbaegel
    I have a really hard time with medication normally because it’s hard for me to sit still and sometimes take time for myself. Balance was something I got with Elevate and I’m never disappointed! This app is so great for guided meditations and has SO many cool things about the app. I wanted headspace because a friend liked it but when I found out about Balance, I was sold right away! This app has everything in one and I really appreciate the design and effort that went into this app. 10/10!
  • Helpful and soothing 4/5

    By MobileMoe
    I find the voice in this app relaxing. Good tips. My mind wanders a lot and the tips of labeling are good. I am receiving encouragement. I am hopeful after a 10 minute session.
  • Best 5/5

    By andyb19862001
    There is no shortage of meditation and mental health apps. I have tried quite a few while some were not bad but using Balance I do not need to keep searching because I found what works for me. Easy to use while still making the plans unique to the individual
  • Breathe App 5/5

    By 1172023
    This App really helps in most any situation I am developing coping skills and strategies daily
  • Didn’t like it 3/5

    By Wormhog
    I didn’t like it. It felt condescending. It would ask a question like “were you able to concentrate during the last session?” Then the voice would say, that’s great you were able to concentrate last session! Too formulaic. I wanted to turn the preamble off completely. Then it started repeating the previous session as if I hadn’t done that one so I stopped. The lessons didn’t progress correctly due to a bug or something.
  • Best meditation app I’ve tried so far 5/5

    By mq909
    I’ve tried multiple meditation apps and this one is my favorite. I love Ofosu’s voice and his approach to meditation. I’m really hopeful this will be the app that gets me to develop a habit.
  • SO COOL 5/5

    By anonymousforsafety
    Theres meditations for almost EVERYTHING you could POSSIBLY think of. And the people who do the meditations are very soothing, I wish I were friends with them. And the free year is elite. No reason not to do it.
  • Well made 5/5

    By onestar109264
    This app is such a good place to start learning how to meditate. You start off with small practice sessions tailored to what you want meditation to help you with
  • Amazing! 5/5

    By Katie Braveheart
    Well thought out. Wonderful platform. Encouraging. Not overwhelming. Do-able even for someone a very tight schedule.
  • I LOVE IT 5/5

    By brasileiraaaahsjsb
    Thanks for making a one year free trial. I’ve been using balance for 6 months now and now I can finally meditate 15 times a month (which is a huge achievement for me). Hopefully will reach 20-30 days a month in the next months. I love that the app track my daily meditations too.
  • Balance app 1/5

    By jan6457
    I don’t use after I did download but I am not interested but you charge me for 30 dollars. It upset me. I want refund back! U should check if I use or not use your app! I will remove your app! Pls refund back!
  • The only meditation app that feels like a mentor guiding me 5/5

    By WhoIsBeauD
    I signed up for the free year, and it was a slow start but I finally started meditating regularly and really noticed my improved mindfulness and mood in life. Then my trial ended. I figured I’d learned the techniques, I knew the exercises and mindfulness so why bother with the app anymore? From time to time I would try other guided meditations and free trials. None of them got me invested in meditation like Balance. None of them felt like a ‘practice’, they didn’t feel like mentors or guides. The meditations were just breathing exercises, not lessons and teachings like Balance. I came back to Balance and now I’m excited about my practice again. Other apps and services felt like they had 50 teachers all giving their own “intro to meditation” practice. Balance feels like 1 mentor who guides you and teaches you as you grow in your practice.

    By Superjimmer
    I truly love this app and it has helped me immeasurably. The guides are incredible, it’s very responsive to my needs, and the plans and meditations are incredibly well thought out. I purchased lifetime plan and couldn’t be happier or more excited about my purchase. Great work.
  • True relief 5/5

    By Duh.Niec3
    I am so glad I decided to get this app. It truly helps me begin each day by meditating and learning more about the tools they give me each day.
  • Well organized and relaxing 5/5

    By BigBlimpin
    Well-crafted and presented. The app tracks my meditation and makes it more likely to return. One of the few app from which I don’t mind getting push notifications. Thanks.
  • So grateful 5/5

    By cj lockwood
    This app has helped me immensely. I really feel as if I have been saved from my depression through developing the discipline to label and disregard my thoughts. Before I started meditating negative ruminations would run rampant through my mind all day. It was debilitating. Now I’m starting to claim my mind and my life back. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
  • Amazing app, much more different than the others 5/5

    By OmegaRealm
    Loving the app so far, and having the free offer of one year makes it even better, The other apps have much more overwhelming app menu while this one keeps it simple yet understanding. Love the voice that they are using too, feels genuine and soothing than the other ones. Thank you so much for what u Guys are doing!
  • free yr trial 5/5

    By trutaoipu
    i love the fact that there is an option to try the app free for a year. due to financial reasons, i personally am not able to seek professional mental health support, and this app really has been helping me stay calm and relax and start to be focused. thank you for allowing us to have an opportunity to try the app free🤍🔅
  • Best app ever 5/5

    By Matt1987--
    I've been meditating for years but this is unlocking so much and helping me immensely. I absolutely love Ofusu's guided meditations and feel so amazing after I've finished one. I love how personalized everything is and deeply appreciate the lengthy free trial. I will definitely be subscribing, this app is a godsend for me. 💛
  • Balance App 5/5

    By Wooli331
    I got the app and signed up for 1 free year but they soon had an offer of $99.00 once for lifetime. I took advantage of it and I have been meditating for over 2 months. I have dabbled with meditation programs but this one fits perfectly for me. I actually think I am calmer, more focused and able to respond and not react in many situations. I absolutely love it and have sent it to many friends!
  • Comprehensive 5/5

    By Hollow1130
    I really like the fact that Balance is backed by research and science and to me that makes it more reliable. The sessions feel incredibly customizable and even tho I’m only on day 3 i feel significant benefits in understanding my emotions and how my state of mind affects myself which in turn can affect others. Everyone should try this app it’s backed by science customizable and you get to do a lot of introspection too. Would be nice to be free for everyone at some point so more people can try.
  • Really good focus 5/5

    By Project1769
    I’ve only done two but so far so good.
  • They advertise Free but still charge $69.99 1/5

    By Bovien
    I signed up with this app because it says one year free then after would be $69.99. Yet they charged my account for $69.99. I contacted their support to get a refund but they still hasn’t reply so I have to contact Apple now. Just FYI that this is not free and you will get charge for $69.99!!!
  • Great App 5/5

    By Craijj1
    I'm sleeping better. I am better. I focus better.
  • Reset 5/5

    By Kelly.Witbeck
    Just a few weeks in with Balance and I’m learning more about my ability to introduce improved focus with meditation.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By Zhaya1027
    I just started and I can feel the difference in my mood everyday.
  • This app is ground breaking for me. 5/5

    By mik142537
    Not only is the app designed beautifully and full of so much content, but its business plan is focused around helping people in the most fair way possible. This app will change your life, take time, spend it on really working on this skill.
  • An awesome blend of science and mindfulness 5/5

    By Patty K Martin
    Balance surprised me in the absolute best way. It offers a level of depth and knowledge I didn’t even know I was missing in my meditation practice. There are gentle lessons sprinkled throughout, offering the science and reasoning behind meditation. Because I understand the techniques, I have found I can use the tools when I need them most.
  • Crap 1/5

    By TaxxiTom
    I can’t find out how to de active the auto renewal
  • Best app 5/5

    By Nessynessa I run LA
    This app has helped me so much in the first week. I’ve never been so calm and focused. Definitely recommending this app to everyone
  • The best meditation app ever! 5/5

    By Carlos12569
    It has amazing guided meditation programs that are tailored to your goals! It has helped me so much in my life! I recommend it to all my friends and family!
  • 🤯 MIND BLOWN 🤯 5/5

    By Come on?!?
    I’ve tried mediation before but it never really helped. Then when my therapist recommended this app I was hesitant but still gave it a shot. And I’m glad I did too!! When I realized Balance was actually helping me sleep not making it worse like the other mediations things I did, I was shocked and amazed. So you must get this app if you have sleep problems or just for whatever!!! It has helped me SO much!!😁I can finally sleep for more than 2 hours!!🤗
  • Just getting started 5/5

    By wildmanwes
    Like the title says I’m only on day 2 so I don’t know if bows the proper time for a review but you won’t get anywhere before start right? It’s very easy to use and the coaches voices are calming. Usually free self help is pretty hard to follow because it has such a wide audience but this app makes me feel like I honestly can learn to meditate and brother that’s not nothing! Safe travels out there!
  • A great way to start my day 5/5

    I love how versatile this app is and truly has giving aid for me to truly have a foundation when it comes to meditation.
  • Crashes and won’t create account 1/5

    By Frustrated dasher28
    So I’ve tried to take the preliminary questionnaire multiple times, which works, and then it says my personalized program is ready and I just need to Create Account… but then the app crashes. Every. Time.
