The app is too big! 1/5
Won’t keep it. The app is using up all my data. Please improve
What happened? 3/5
I used to love this app but now every single meditation costs money. Shame. I no longer use it and recommend Head Space 🙏🏼✌🏼
Very calming 5/5
By Awesome Cat Lady
My favorite is The Secret Lagoon. It helps me fall asleep relaxed and calm!
Pricing is ridiculous 2/5
The app doesn't have enough features or depth to charge the extremely high prices that are offered for subscription options. Please adjust so that more people can have access to this wonderful app. 🙏🏻
A Must. 5/5
I’m a high school student, a little bit depressed and always anxious—around people, at work. I downloaded Calm about a year ago, and it has really helped me compartmentalize my stressful thoughts, and forget about them when I need to. Before bed, or before or during homework is a great time for it.
I don’t really feel safe at school in the sense that there is not a place to hide or be by myself when I am feeling overwhelmed, but the nature audio (which is free) helps me zone out during class, or lunch, or passing period when I’ve got my headphones.
I also have a younger sibling who doesn’t fall asleep when she’s supposed to. Calm has these stories for children (and adults, I believe) and sleep talkdowns also in the app, which I put on for her. It always works.
I introduced the app to my friends and my mom and so far everyone has had a use for it. A lot of my apps I lose a purpose for and end up deleting them for space—Calm is not one of those. It’s got a wide variety of uses, great technical support who listen to feedback, and best of all it’s given me peace of mind.
Scam. Data grab. 1/5
It’s a scam. You have to give up an email address or connect by Facebook (and we all know how safe that is) before you see it will cost $60 for whatever this supposedly life-changing content is.
Slumber App Is BETTER!! 1/5
Expensive not a lot of options unless you pay over 30 bucks !! Monthly....
Perfect timing 5/5
By Insimniac no more
I’ve never been a meditator and although I tried it years ago, I didn’t like it. But something about this APP, the speaker’s voice and the content of the messages are proving to be perfect for me. Maybe I was just ready? I strongly recommend giving this a try. Really, who can’t spare 10-12 minutes a day to be more grounded, relaxed and joyful? Bonus: I’m sleeping better!
I can’t get past the voice 3/5
By LeeLoo Dallas 8749502
There is so much to like about this app with all the soothing sounds and visuals, but the meditation is awful and I use another app for that. As another reviewer stated it’s like she’s reading to a child with all the up and down inflections. And I stress the word reading. It doesn’t sound like she’s speaking naturally and makes me believe they hired someone with no meditation background to read a script. I find that very distracting and I can’t get through a meditation without being annoyed.
Free for 7 days. Then it’s 59.99
I miss your old music options.
So easy and convenient 5/5
Easy to use and what a great way to add this to my meditation practice. So much to choose from. Thank you 🙏
Highly price 1/5
The app is great i love the sleep story section but the price is not for everyone (not for me either) + we deserve the right to choose subscription monthly instead of a year which is a long commitment
First app I download on both Android and iPhone 5/5
By U'i Wahine
I have severe ADD, anxiety and insomnia. I use to take medicine for all three. I told my doctor that I want to stop the medicine but my problems will still exist. I needed guidance and he told me to download an app called CALM. Best thing I’ve ever done for myself!! I no longer take any medicine!! Yay!! This app not only does it take away my anxiety and insomnia but it also helps my 2 & 4 yr old daughters fall asleep in no time!! My favorite is the thunder and rain but I also enjoy the stories.
Pros and cons as per me. 3/5
The app is excellent; I just wish it offered a bit more for non-premium (the cost free) version.
To get more content is as easy as subscribing to the entire package, but not everyone has the means to do so consistently.
But again, I have to highlight that with the little access I have to some other meditation programs within the app, it has helped me develop a good meditation habit just using the background music.
I just wish I had more at my reach.
By Postcard fan
Don’t start the 7 day free trial. It is cleverly designed so you cannot cancel it. They give instructions on how to do so but none of them work.
A lifesaver 5/5
This app has been a lifesaver for me over the past month as I am going through hormonal imbalance which has caused a great deal of anxiety and some depression. I have a dedicated time each day to use the app and work through the different meditations (so many choices!) I have also used this app in what I call my “emergency situations” where I can feel the anxiety setting in and then I know it’s time to break out Calm and my headphones and breathe right through the anxiety and anxious thoughts to calm my self down. This is a great introduction for anyone interested in starting meditation and I highly recommend it!
Nice app 4/5
I fall asleep every night to the sleep stories in this app. They’re great. But I’m knocking a star off for the crazy price of $60 for one year! I still can’t believe I paid it...but it puts me to sleep every time. So it’s worth it.
This is actually not only my favorite meditation app but my favorite app overall. I especially love the daily calm and the sleep stories. I live with anxiety and depression and this is a huge tool in my self care routine and when I go days without it, I can feel the strain. I just wish they would update the free content.
First impressions - beware battery drain 2/5
Even after downloading update on 4/23/18, this app drains my battery more than anything I’ve ever owned. Decent free features so far - I’ve tried the music and stories. But battery issue makes it nearly unusable. Drains roughly half my battery in just 30 minutes or so.
Please stop asking me to review every time 1/5
I love this app except something changed recently. The one thing I enjoy most is turning on my white noise before bed and then listening to a sleep story. In the past, when the sleep story was over the white noise would continue. Now, the sleep story waits for a review before resuming white noise. This kind of defeats the purpose of both for bedtime. Please fix this so I can give all 5 stars.
Great app 5/5
By good affd
Music and stories great
Fabulous app 5/5
Best app I have ever downloaded! So relaxing wonderful for going to sleep love the sleep stories love everything about this app and going to recommend it to everyone I know.
Value not there for me 3/5
I am not interested in a subscription model this service. If I was, it would be max $3/month. I would prefer an option to buy and own the meditations that I like. Until that option is offered I am using other apps mostly: pulse, pause and some great offerings Take a Break and Rest & Relax that allow me to purchase the meditation one time.
I would even be open to paying for each use of a meditation but my practice habit can not justify the current pricing model.
Two reasons 4/5
1. I’ve had the app for over 4 months The “Mindfulness Reminder” keeps repeating
2. The money. It’s great but why 60 why should you pay to be happy
Amazing App 5/5
Thank you for supporting my desire to practice meditation.
I’m a fan but the app could use an alarm 4/5
I downloaded the app a week ago to use for insomnia it is fantastic. I have never slept better in by life. Well worth the money.
However I could only give it 4 stars because my alarm app has not gone off. Not sure if it is because the Calm app to go open all night and is overriding the alarm app?
My suggestion is to add and alarm to the app.
Otherwise great app.
This is worth it! 5/5
By Raven SinClair
I struggled with horrible PTSD symptoms for years now. It was difficult to apply mindfulness to my everyday routine until I found this app. It has greatly reduced my physical and mental symptoms by allowing me to become aware, ride the waves and let go of emotion. I’m not going to say it’s a cure because there is no such thing. I view it as a tool to maintain your mental fitness like a treadmill and exercise helps maintain your physical fitness. Gradually over time your mind becomes stronger and more capable but mindfulness like physical exercise should become part of your routine so you can keep optimum mental fitness. Also, I was on medication and no longer require it yet it doesn’t mean anyone should stop taking their medication. I suggest to start doing mindfulness and as you progress there may be a reduction to your prescription and eventually you may be able to come off of them. Hope this is helpful! God bless!
useless overpriced crap 1/5
By marco tuvalorenzo
with filthy aubscriptions that must be reported to FTC to get the shady dev fined
basically in this app you get zero to nothing content coming with an app
searched for an app with binaural beats and sleep sounds ... it was in an ad
finally only a stephen fry unpleasant voice and stupid story with woman voice for kids are free
most of paid things are just useless
no binaural beats, no real sleep sounds
My subscription isn’t working 1/5
By Sophia Singer
I got I subscription thinking it would work on all of the meditation and music and sleep stories but it only worked for some of the mentation and some of the music when it said it would unlock everything in the app they need to fix it
Ahhh 💕 4/5
By Trial by Meier
With Calm my life has been more calm. I love 💕the reminders so chill and on point. The changes of background are so wonderful.. I woke up one morning thinking we had a pleasant rain storm...no..but a great beginning of the day. When I feel stressed a can take a breather with the breathing section and I am able to tackle the world 🌎 it’s like a refreshing power nap 💤. I recommend it to my friends all the time...who doesn’t need a little Calm in their life. 🧘♂️
Truly disappointed 1/5
This app use to be my favorite, and I purchased a years subscription back then. But after the subscription ended and I dwindled from using it, all these updates occurred and I can’t even truly test a series (I was only able to do day 1 of a few different meditation packages). I can’t test a 12 minute session and automatically know that I want to spend $60 on an app. I agree with another reviewer, the option to purchase individual sessions or packages would be much more enticing. The price of this app is definitely not reasonable for the audience who could really benefit from a free or cheaper product.
So upset 1/5
By Lady Bulldog00
I canceled the day before my subscription was supposed to charge me, conveniently it didn’t take my cancellation and now I have a year of some meditation app that I don’t want.
Why charge people for a year reoccurring charge when it’s much easier to accidentally forgive a charge for a month. Example I wouldn’t be so mad if your company screwed me out of nine dollars, but you screwed me out of Close to $60! Maybe for Rich app designers that’s exactly what you do screw middle America out of their money that they work very hard for!
I deleted your app because while I might have to pay for it, I would rather choke and die before I use it! You stole money from me is the way I see it, and Apple, and iTunes was your frontier your wild wild west, good for you... now excuse me while I have to go work another four hours to make up the money you took from me! dirt bag
Guided mediation 5/5
By Mrs Spitball
I gave it 5 Stars because, when I’m guided with a calm voice such as hers, I find I can meditate easily. Thank you!👍
Daily Calms out of the can 4/5
I’ve been using Calm for almost 3 years now on an almost daily basis. I think it did help me with a lot of issues and I do begin to notice benefits from using it in my life. The reason why I’m only giving 4 stars is that the „Daily Calm” sessions, something I used to look forward to, have been simple replays of previous sessions for a while now. That’s annoying, especially since they let you save your favorite sessions. So it happened to me a couple of times now that I played one of my favorite sessions and then the following day I listen to the exact same thing as a “daily Calm” because it’s being replayed. I think the daily sessions should be new, otherwise I feel a little fooled. Other than that I really like it.
Helpful, calming and full of ideas! 5/5
Thank you for your hard work on this creative app.
Very relaxing 4/5
By Magnetic Diva
I love the crackling fire. I am full of anxiety a lot so it calms me down.
Solid content, poorly priced/packaged for sale. 3/5
Only full year offered. Trial period designed to catch you.
Great app 5/5
Life changing: never any issues with application and has a great variety of mindfulness activities, love it,
I love this app and have been using is consistently for the pas two years. I renewed my subscription but was so disappointed to find that many of the things I use (deep sleep to name one) were not a part of my renewal fee this time. As a user that raves about this app, I felt let down that I had no warning or heads up about the subscription changes.
Not great 1/5
By KJM 1998
The price is ridiculous and it is glitchy.
Be careful downloading!!! 1/5
I downloaded this app with the intentions of trying it out, it ended up charging me a whole year of subscription just for downloading the app. Very deceitful and will not be using this app anymore.
Wonderful meditation sounds and music, but now very limited to non-paying members 4/5
I use the thunderstorm sound on the free version of this app every night to help me fall asleep. I used to use the body scans, but Calm recently locked those out to non-subscribing members, which is very disappointing because I can’t afford to pay for the app and the body scans were extremely soothing. I’ll be using a different app now for body scans. That being said, if you can afford this app, I recommend it, but for those of us who can’t, all of the nature sounds and meditation music is still free, along with a (now much smaller) collection of free meditations
Keep calm and meditate 5/5
I can’t say enough about how amazing this app is. I thought it was perfect and then the recent update made it even better. It’s intuitive, it’s organized, it’s thoughtful. Mindfulness was a surprisingly overwhelming scary concept to me. I was afraid I’d do it wrong, and I also lacked the discipline to do it daily because of this phobia. The app helps ease that fear / intimidation by offering lots of different types of meditative practices and really allows you to curate your own approach to mindfulness. Need help sleeping? There’s a series. Want to work on anxiety or forgiveness? There are series for all sorts of different human scenarios + regular breathing meditation, timed meditation, body scan exercises: the list goes on. And the interface is gorgeous. Imagine every sort of calming, nature inspired theme you can think of. Add natural sound effects. Maybe a few bells or bowls, flutes, and other meditation inspired music makers. It’s absolutely stunning. But the most impressive part of this app? 75% of it — classes, music, themes, meditations, guided series — is FREE. That’s right. You can have a expensive feeling, curated meditation class daily, on your phone FOR FREE. Of course, if you want even more of this, you can pay & honestly, I’m m considering it for the summer. Imagine going on vacation, sitting on the train, or even during family time (they have a section for kids), being able to do anything from a 3 minute quick mediation to a 1 hour long body scan, right from your phone? I’ve added this to my new ✨glow up✨ app package lol down dog(basically this app for yoga), Meditapes(another cool way to meditate), class pass (free 1 week trial to the best Pilates studios all over bk) and a few others to help me develop a mindfulness approach to every aspect do my life. And this app inspired it all.
Life Changing 5/5
This meditation app has been such a life changing app! Without it I would still be lost! Thanks so much!!!
Great 4 Ruts 5/5
My meditation practice had become intermittent, uninteresting and eventually non existent. Some friends use Calm. Some use Headspace. I decided not to renew my Headspace subscription and gave Calm a try. I like it for a couple reasons.
1. It’s diverse. There are loads of features.
2. It’s different in appearance than Headspace; therefore novel and interesting.
3. The woman’s voice on Daily Calm is so very loving, soft, comfortable and arousing.
What good is it? 1/5
Very deceiving....make no mistake...you might be able to download the app for free, but better get your wallet ready, otherwise it’s useless. Unlock this, unlock that, unlock your bank account. Frustrating!
By Paris Rachel-Katherine Mendez
I love this app I meditate almost every day. My outlook on life has changed dramatically and after every session I feel at peace a little more. I learn to take every day as it comes to focus on the present moment do yourself the favor and allow your mind and body to be at peace.
Ok app, bad customer service 1/5
By S Giffahd
The app itself is okay, but the customer service (lack there of) has been poor. No open line of communication via telephone and email does not seem to be working...
By Opieoid Blocker
I suggest anyone of theses themes.
