What a well designed and comprehensive app. If has been a life saver for me. There is something here for everyone. If you’re on the fence—please consider giving it a try!
I was really really stressed about flying on a plane and this helped me overcome my fear!
Mediations plus great kids bedtime routine 5/5
I love doing the daily meditation with some yoga poses. The kids bedtime stories work magic.
The calmest app in the world that just wants to stress you out. 1/5
This app is relaxing until you realize that YOU GET NOTHING IF YOU DON’T DO THE TRIAL THING AND THAT COST A YEARS INCOME AND OMG IT IS SO ANNOYING BECAUSE IT COSTS SO MUCH!
Meditations for the busy mind 5/5
Absolutely amazing!! Finally meditating (after years of trying to “get in the zone”) using this app!! Highly recommend!!!
Love it 5/5
It is amazing app
Annual fee fraud 1/5
This app is fraud, do not use
I had no idea I would be charged $80 for this app. When I tried to investigate why and how to cancel, there was no concern or care. I get that things have a price. But shouldn’t I know before I have to pay it. Save yourself.
Just what the Dr ordered 5/5
I was referred to this app by my Functional Medicine Practitioner as a way to help my anxiety. I highly recommend it!!
I tried it. It Does What It Says, but . . . 5/5
By Honore du Gaulois
I simply cannot afford it. I had to pay when I downloaded the 7 day trial. Then I had serious choices to make. I needed to cancel during the 6 day trial. I absolutely cannot find a way to contact Calm. The product gives a needed service. It is meant for a group of people to whom I no longer belong. Please cancel the charge. That will have a calming effect. On another day I will buy it. Thank you.
I use this every night for my kids! They have great bedtime stories and I can play it on my Bluetooth speaker so they can hear it easily. They love it!
Life changing 5/5
I’ve been doing the daily calm meditation for eight months now. It is a great introduction to meditation. There are so may great features including in the subscription including the sleep stories for kids!
This App Covers Literally EVERYTHING 5/5
By The REAL McPeaches
Struggling with work, home, grief, depression, anxiety, PTSD, stress, focus..... I mean, if you’re struggling with it, they’ve GOT YOU!!!! They have background noises (TONS of them)
They have stories read aloud by celebrities with amazing voices, like Erik Braa (A Voiceover artist) and Matthew McConaughey!!!
Calm even has body stretches & mindfulness warmups for anytime of day.. morning, noon & night!!
THEY EVEN HAVE KIDS STUFF!!!
Struggling with something specific.... LOOK AT THOSE MASTERCLASSES!!!
Also, there are series for specific struggles.
(There are so many, I’ve had 5his app since August, and there is STILL so many series I haven’t even gotten to.
**** And they tell you to take a deep breath, right when you open the app. The very first thing you’ll see, EVERY TIME, is “Take a deep breath”
I really can’t explain how much this app has changed my life. Calm provides so much for my life that I could talk about this app all day.
(Side note: I started calm with major Post Partum Depression, high anxiety, absolutely NO love for myself, or for life in general. To be honest, my children were (at that time) keeping me alive
Not really great needs more improvement. 3/5
By Hi SiStErS neytiry:3
So just got this app and you have to pay 79.99$. Why do you have to pay to sleep, relax, reduce ANXIETY, reduce DEPRESSION. AND MORE. I am angry. This deserves a 3 star. I’m being nice rn I would give this a 1.
SOOOO GOOD GET IT!!! 5/5
By Mich3ll3 Martin
This app is so good! It works and it has all the sounds and stories and no ads at all. And it will put you to sleep so you get a full night and not a night with out sleep.
Great sleep app 4/5
I love this app. It helps me fall asleep faster than any other one I have tried. But I wish there were more female voices. Male voices are not soothing at all.
This is a scam. I cannot cancel. 1/5
SCAM. SCAM. SCAM. I wrote several times to iTunes and the app’s website to please cancel my subscription since I did not authorize their charge for $75, and it’s IMPOSSIBLE to get a refund.
By call banana
Good story bro
Great app 5/5
By clint wolf
I just started today and am more relaxed already. Tamara’s voice, by the way, is very soothing. Thanks.
Best App ever 5/5
I’m away calmer person now
Not enough free content, too pricey 1/5
It’s a good app, but I’m not paying $70.00 a year for the content. There’s only like one free meditation free per category. Can’t complete a series. I can listen to meditations on you tube or Head Space for free.
Change Your Life 5/5
Teachers - it’s free! There is an ENTIRE section for kids of all ages, through college, in addition to the adult courses.
For anyone else, spend the $60 and challenge yourself to listen to just one 12 minute Daily Calm per day. It’ll even remind you at set times.
Before you know it, you will want to go thru all the vast and constantly growing content.
The MasterClasses are fantastic, especially the one on Discovering Happiness. Between meditations on different subjects to short guided yoga segments to OMG the Sleep Stories - this app has honestly changed my life and how I am dealing with every single thing in life, good, bad and ugly.
There is something for every part of the day. Most segments are a bit over ten minutes but there are longer as well. There are too many options to list! And even just the sounds (waves to lakes to cat purring) are great to have in the background, especially if like me, you get a little overstimulated and benefit from gentle white noise as a reminder to slow down.
I am so in love with this app!!! Best $60 I’ve spent in ages, although I originally thought it was billed $5/month. At least it prompts me to get as much as I can out of it.
Make the investment in YOU. I promise you won’t regret it.
Ugh.... Tamara’s voice 1/5
I like guided meditations - my main reason for getting Calm. But 90% of the guided meditations are voiced by Tamara which, for me, is like nails on a chalkboard. I can’t concentrate on anything she’s saying because I find her tone and style so irritatingly “actress-y”. I could overlook it if there were more options to choose from.
Why so few guided meditations with other voices?
PLEASE! I beg you to add more variety.
One day pass trail auto subscription, can’t get a refund 1/5
Signed up for the 7 day trail, day 8 tried to cancel the one year subscription. Apple won’t refund, and the company just runs u in a loop back to apple. So now I guess I have 365 days of trash talking a company that forces u into products you don’t want, with there “free” trail!
Absolutely amazing! 5/5
I love this app.
Cancel my subscription now. August 18, 2019
Very relaxing 5/5
I listen to calm every night. I even listened this morning because I just I just like it. Great way to go on an imaginative journey and forget about everything else
It’s not free 2/5
you have to pay in order to listen to the stories and things :(
The free version was just a tease 1/5
Loved the layout but non we could use without the 7 day trial. You should have several free, that’s more enticing.
There’s to many glitches 3/5
Every time I open the app it starts glitching. It does not let me touch anything and then exits me out of the app. Not to mention that it takes about 2 minutes to even load the app. When it actually loads and doesn’t exit out of the app I enjoy it.
Q: What is good sleep worth? 5/5
A: Worth every penny of the subscription cost! Extremely well done app with layer upon layer of various, not only sleep, but overall health and wellness aids. Love that it keeps getting better. Well done!
Cash cow 1/5
Used to be one of my favorite apps and I used it all the time. Had to reset my phone and start over as new. Reinstalled this app and all of my downloaded music for use offline is gone and there is LITERALLY only one song I can play without starting a 7 day “free trial” for calm premium and then paying a subscription of like $70 a year. There used to be a number of free songs and then a lot more “premium” content. I don’t mind supporting the creators of this app. I would pay a little money but definitely not a yearly subscription. All these greedy cash cows these days. First review I’ve written and you get 1 star deservedly so. Last year with the way it used to be it would be 4-5 stars. Hope developers read this and learn from the experience. What a waste. Uninstalled.
By squirrely girl
I think calm is a great app. But I listened to waterfall every single night, and then one night it said that I had to pay for it which made me super mad. I don’t think getting rid of the whole premium act is a good idea because I know the creator gets their money from that, but if they could reconsider just a few sleep stories for people, such as waterfall, it would make me feel a whole lot better. I learned about Calm from my friends, and guess what sleep story they listened to? Waterfall.
Do not get 2/5
Get one free then have to pay to unlock everything else. That’s not right. Would not recommend this to anyone. 70 bucks for a year is way to expensive.
Get you to download than charge 79.99.
Beware 70$ Fee 1/5
The app gives one option upon registration: 1 week trial followed by 70$ yearly subscription fee. Unfortunately, if you forget like many people to cancel the subscription of an app you only used one afternoon, you’re charged 70$, and you have no option for refunds.
Calm doesn’t handle charges itself, but through iTunes, which has restrictions on refunds and directs you to a long legal document about refunds in the United States. Customer service say they’ll “try” to accept a refund request, but nothing’s guaranteed.
It’s worse when you find that there are other cheaper subscriptions options, like monthly subscription, but yearly is all what Calm offers you upon registration. Why? So much for Calm; more like Reptilian. You and I can count plenty digital services that recognize these mistakes and make refunds easy and readily accessible.
The refund was just now approved. But before you risk wasting an hour, and before you try this app, reach out for a calendar and a strong neon sharpie.
So there’s yt you can turn it sleeping music 5/5
(Idk this app so plz don’t hate on me)
New Orators Please 3/5
I find many of the voices lispy or too animated for thorough relaxation. Too many British accents for my tastes. Getting really tired of Tamara.
Best Sleeping App 5/5
I take meds to sleep through my PTSD but sometimes it doesn’t work...and this app has helped me through daily meditation, breathing exercises and sleep. I have a choice of stories and music to sleep. I keep my favorites and have my trusty iPad by my side. I never get to hear the end of the story or hear the music stop. Between my favorite storytellers and my favorite composers for this type of music...this app is stellar and I would recommend it to anyone that needs their sleep or control in their life...there are affirmations guides in this app as well. I even use this app for music with my massage therapy clients too. Best thing you could do for yourself!
Bad Review 1/5
By Disgruntled Now!
I downloaded the app, listened to two stories wasn’t impressed. It asked me to pay their prices in which I did NOT want to pay so I deleted my app. A few days later they charged me $74.99!! I’m calling to dispute! May call BBB as well! WATCH YOUR ACCOUNT!
Thank you 5/5
This is the best app every
As a beginner in meditation I was hopeful. Tried the 1st day of meditate & was truly looking forward to the 2nd. Perhaps experienced folks can decide this app is what they are looking for, but as a beginner I need more than one 10 min session to decide. I do not commit to any payment without being sure I’m ready to continue. A 7 day free trial would be nice but then automatic payment on anything is not for me. Really too bad as I did believe this could have been good
Passing it Forward 5/5
This application is a wonderful way to start my day! I then get an opportunity to pass it forward not only to my students but my colleagues. I have strong hopes this application will be a positive tool to change the atmosphere in our school!
It’ll charge you without you knowing 1/5
I have no idea how a subscription was activated but all I did was download the app to see what it was about as it was recommended to me, I will never recommend this it was a scam. How could I have been charged $59 without even knowing. I need to be reimbursed and i will be deleting this immediately after-I am the opposite of calm right now.
Bogus ad :-/ 1/5
Was on YouTube and an ad popped up to get the full version free so I figured it was worth a shot and if it was good, I’d continue on after the first year. Unfortunately that was a scam to get you to download bc $100 isn’t free. Not gunna try something for a few days and throw out that kind of money when it should’ve been free....maybe one day that will actually be a legit possibility and I can give it a fair chance.
I had the app before and the free version had nothing worthwhile so it was a pointless download. I guess they changed the dynamics around.....oh well.
I like it but.. 3/5
So I have trouble sleeping cause I’m always to hyper so I downloaded this and since I find music really calming I decided to try it then I saw the music so I pressed it. But I had to pay for the music when music is the only thing that is peaceful to me and I was really upset so please remove the paying for all the music because I don’t wanna spend money on that so please unlock some of the music. Cause some people might not wanna pay for music a lot of people like music.
L. O. V. E. 5/5
My 11 and 8 year old daughters and I love falling asleep to the sleep stories. I believed that my 11 year old will also just use the calming background sounds and not the stories some days too.
My 8 year old absolutely loved the stories. I do too actually. She does have some chronic anxiety which is probably related to her chronic pain and fever condition. But to have something like this for her to always have to be there for her when even her own her body is failing her.
I really love this app and I love using it but lately it hasn’t been working, for example sometimes when you go into the app it goes straight into scenes and sounds and you can’t get out the only thing you can do is choose a scene and nothing will happen and when you close and reopen the app it does the same thing. Also it takes a long time to load into the app I know you want time for people to breathe and stuff but no one takes 2 minutes to take A deep breath. I hope you can fix it but till then I will not be using this app.
Im only on day one but it is really helpful and clear so far im loving it alot
