By cairo son!
I loved this app when I first got it because it had a great amount of content for free. I loved the natural music sounds and now all of my saved ones are locked. Thanks a lot! See I would be totally down to spend 5 bucks on this app & be done with it but I hate the idea of dropping $60 on it. Sorry Calm. Maybe another day..
Calm App Review 1/5
I don’t think this is a great app for people who are in need of something as little as falling asleep. Although i’m sure there are great things within the app but without paying the offer isn’t enough.I suggest for the future to provide other stories or music for people who are not willing to pay!
Not for me 3/5
Did not help me. Forgot about app. My acct was charged $76 and I cannot get a straight answer on a refund. Their customer service stinks
Update, same day, it took me going to their actual support site to find the help I needed. I added 2 stars, because I did get my refund and I retract my previous statement regarding their customer service. On the other hand, this app didn’t work for me, personally.
Makes you pay 2/5
Just bought this app to try it out and quickly discovered there is almost no free content whatsoever. Pretty much everything but a few bedtime stories requires you to join and pay. Tights is all well and good, but they should be more clear about this.
Not free 1/5
Free to install, not use.
I rate calm a five star rating because it has everything you need to help you in life.😀calm is amazing!!!!the only thing is you have to pay seventy dollars each year but I think it’s perfect!!!!!!😆
Cool Remove... 5/5
I like this app. I love the concept, I walk with Spirit, this helps.
By Michael Joesph Kelly
“Calm”is great for me because I get mad pretty quick then I just go to”Calm”go to “more” and do the “breath.”
A scam 1/5
I signed up for a free trial for a week, cancelled in time and was still charged for a year! Can't seem to cancel!!??
the fact that u have to pay for more, i don’t like🙄😂
Make sure you cancel before the trial ends 1/5
If the trial ends before you cancel, they will charge you for a full year, not just the next month. If this is an app you just want to test out, the mistake of forgetting to cancel will cost you $75.
Beware of billing 1/5
I was billed before midnight on day of free trial expiration. Once it is billed, there is no refund. I am very unhappy with this.
Subscription after trial 1/5
I downloaded the app to check it out, then deleted it. I did not use it but was charged or yearly subscription fee for not canceling. I had completely forgotten about this app but my credit card now has the reminder. Be sure to delete your subscription with an a trial.
I would love to give this app five stars. However I am fifteen and can’t afford to pay $70 annually so I got the free version. While I am sure it is a wonderful app if you can pay, there are very few options for free. For those of you who want to get the free version and avoid getting tricked into a subscription, simply press the x in the top left corner. I recommend the breathing exercises! Please Calm, make this more open to people without tons of money! Mindfulness should be free!
False free subscription period 1/5
I just want to warn before you get money taken by this app. They offer a 7 day trial period but the starting date in iTunes gets moved back 2 days from when you registered and you will get charged after 5 days. The app unfortunately does not have a module about how to calm yourself after getting misled and your money taken by this app, so watch out for this one!

I love lis appso muck
You greedy pieces of trash. Never even downloaded this garbage app and I still was getting charged. This is a simple gateway for people to steal money from you. Essentially, a scam in disguise.
Some of the stories are okay. Most are poorly written and the narration isn’t calming or sleep inducing.
I Love Calm Lovingkindness Meditation 5/5
By One Sunshine
With waves and bird sound in the background, and no fee, the Calm App’s Lovingkindness Meditation guides me through embracing my highest priority—Lovingkindness.
What a gift to spend time focused on only that—on loving enemies, neighbors, family, friends, and all life from a base of self-care!
So often we see and hear the world as threatening, as thoughtless, as inhumane. We can take a break from that perspective and reclaim a practice of grace for all.
I am profoundly grateful for this guided meditation that resets my heart to Lovingkindness!
Appreciate meditations, wish they’d change a few things. 3/5
As a longtime meditation practitioner, I appreciate this app as a way to ensure I sit every day. One thing I find incredibly distracting is that the narrator’s breaths, which are loud and constant, aren’t edited out or lowered. That’s an easy audio fix. Also, for the most part, I find the meditations relevant and helpful. There are times when it feels like they are in service to mainstream culture (weight loss, etc) rather than mindfulness practices rooted in dharma.
They stole my money. 1/5
They really did. I accidently bought twice, less than 30 days ago, and it is clear that I accidently bought twice. I contacted calm who told me that they can't do anything about it and that I have to contact apple. I go to apple and after endless menu items, I find that they simply won't refund my money, and of course it is impossible to talk to a live person. It really is stealing but there is nothing I can do about it.
Couldn’t live without it 5/5
This app is one of my favorites. We use the sleep stories to help the kids go to sleep at night. There’s no light in the room like you’d have to have if you’re reading a book and the soothing voices and reminder to snuggle down and get comfortable work like a charm. The Dragon Tamers is my sons favorite right now.

Not taking a chance on the 7 day trial and getting my money caught up with locus SHS glitched.
Calm is a lovely meditation app 5/5
Calm is an excellent modern way to easy guided meditation. I love the ability to choose different narrators voices. I also like the different downloadable backgrounds and sounds that accompany them. It’s also great how there is a new daily meditation, it’s a nice touch!
One request would be if Calm could start to include pain management meditations. Meditations to help with things like Chronic Migraines, Cancer diagnoses, Crohns, Parkinson's, or even meditations focused around dealing with grief.
I decided to go for the subscription because I got a deal from WhatReallyHappened. It was a good call, and I’m glad the discount helped me decide to get it. It’s a great APP guys, you should feel really proud!
69.99?! for rain sounds?! bye 1/5

absolutely amazing, this app has really helped me find myself again and help control my anxiety and stress <3
Not Free 2/5
By Brienna Beatty
There is nothing I despise more than downloading an app to find out it’s not free..troll me for my information..what a waste of my time..!
Great app - needs Story repeat mode 4/5
This is a great app I just really would like to queue up stories or at least allow stories to repeat. The current version requires me to keep launching the app throughout the night to hear more of the great stories to fall back asleep.
I love calm 5/5
Calm is the best I've had it for two years now.💙😴
I love calm even though I still can’t go to sleep I love to just listen to the stories there awesome every day after 8:00 I go nuts with this it is so relaxing 😌 so I love calm so much my favorite is close your eyes sleepy paws well that’s it for me hope u have an awesome night!
Very calming and really helps me sleep and fills all my gaps of my terrible life! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟⭐️⭐️💫💫🌟✨🌟⭐️💫💫🌟🌟
No Alexa Support 2/5
I made a big mistake and downloaded and subscribed to this before realizing it was not supported on Amazon Alexa!!!!
It is supported on the Google Devices but not Alexa?????
What fool develops an Audio application and makes it compatible with Google and Not ALEXA?????!!!!!
I immediately canceled my subscription the second I found this out.
Good app but I’m broke so free trial 3/5
By p E n I S. b. i. t. c. h
I wish this was free.
amazing techniques 5/5
Wonderful meditation sessions
You have to pay
App Stops Working When I Hide the App 1/5
I don’t want all the lights from my iPad brightening my room when I’m trying to relax or meditate but when I close the cover of my iPad or push the button to blank the screen out the app shuts off
Feels like a bait and switch fraud 1/5
By nicole e n
When this ap offers a week for free ostensibly so you can see if you like it and want to pay for it- that is NOT what happens- it takes $75 and signs you up for a year whether you like their format or not and won’t let you cancel. This leaves me with a highly negative impression of the people who have designed this and they should be ashamed of themselves. I immediately went in and made sure it wouldn’t automatically give me two years, and I wouldn’t continue under any circumstances.
Perfect, but... 4/5
This app is really good , it’s really helpful and calming, but the problem is you have to pay for almost everything, i hope they add more free stuff...
Better Free version 3/5
I really want to try this app but I’m one of those users that isn’t going to put my credit card/Apple Pay for anything. I prefer not trying it purely based on the process of needing to remember to cancel etc. That being said, I also have paid for apps before that are pure utility (navigation app for boating).
I really wish you guys would expose more of the content to the free version so I knew exactly what my ROI is. However the approach I think there’s too little content for a user to feel the full benefits. I’d like to see this adjusted so I can try more modules and move fwd.
I love the space this Calm is in and hope you guys all the best.
No fear meditation 5/5
I used to fear failure at meditation and therefore just couldn’t consistently try. This app has taken it all away. It makes it simple and inspiring and keeps me on track. The daily messages plus sleep music have truly contributed to improving my quality of life. GRATEFUL!
absolute favorite app :) 5/5
this app is helping me with my anxiety, helping me sleep better and just keeping me motivated and positive throughout the day. everyone that has tried this has been saying that it has helped them so much. i strongly recommend this!
I love this app. It helps me relax so much and I don’t have that much anxiety. 😉😜😀
Can't start my day without Calm 5/5
By pri whyte
I've subscribed to Calm for a little over a year and I must share that the guided meditations have helped to ground me during stressful situations. Calm was the beginning of a self-care routine and I have added other forms of self love as well. I feel "off" if I don't meditate daily. BRAVO to the creators of this app. The content within app is worth the investment in yourself.
By Inara T.
It really has helped me develop in meditation and definitely helps with my temper and anxiety.
Very helpful 5/5
By Greatgrandpa John
This is well worth the money. Really helps to calm you down. I may be able to get off Xanax.
WATCH OUT FOR FREE TRIAL! 1/5
Free trial automatically becomes $70 premium subscription! Completely non-transparent marketing! Buyer beware!
I wanted to try a few mindfulness apps to determine which would work best for me. I saw Calm was offering a free 7 day trial and it did mention that it would roll over to subscription plan after the trial. I assumed that meant it would subscribe to the least expensive monthly plan which I could then upgrade if I ended up loving the app and I certainly expected that some confirmation would be required. Nope. No notification, no subscription selection or payment confirmation. At 3:30 AM after 7 days, Calm billed me for 1 year premium subscription at $69.99.
I still don’t know how or why this plan was selected. I was not prompted to select a plan and certainly nothing in the free-trial ad mentioned that it would roll into a $70 yearly subscription. To me this is very shoddy business practices! I hope more frustrated consumers will leave negative responses because I think that “Calm’s” nearly 5 star rating is also deceptive to potential buyers. It’s not 5 star customer service when you railroad people into buying one of your most expensive products!
I love, love this app. It is such a well thought out app. It is relevant with the mindfulness meditation topics and really enjoyable to use. There are so many things to like about it. The cost for premium is 69.99 per year and well worth the cost to have full use of the application. It is really helping me stay focused on present moment. My first module I am working on presently is 7 Days to Relieving Anxiety. It is amazing! They offer 7 day free trial. I highly recommend it. I personally find it far superior to the other mindful apps I have explored. This one has all the check marks.
Disappointing as to cost 3/5
Extremely expensive; "free" version has everything locked. I'm not willing to risk the 7 day free version and end up having to first remember to cancel on time and then possibly have to dispute the charges. I have had my share of administrative hassles related to other trial periods. I would've liked to try at least some of the features before deciding whether to purchase it, but since I'm looking for an app for multiple people in my family, I can't see paying that much per person anyway.
