user-friendly (in every sense) and immensely rewarding 5/5
from the animations to the library layout to the practices, headspace is extremely approachable at any level of comfort with meditation. the very existence of the app is motivating, but headspace provides additional encouragement with progress bars and milestones.
there are meditation exercises of varying duration and for a myriad of activities and moods, along with a stellar collection of “sleepcasts” (which has a slider to alter the volume of either ambient noise or voice). exercises can be downloaded for offline listening.
I can see no downsides and would recommend headspace to anyone as a worthwhile investment.
Headspace is awesome! I love the guided meditation and the teachings. I highly recommend it 5/5
By Margie's Mountain View
I had no idea what I was doing when I first tried to meditate. First I downloaded the free app but now I’m a member. Totally awesome!
My moment of centering all things 5/5
I love to get quiet in the morning and do my headspace exercise. The voice is so soothing and his insights are amazing. It has helped me through some challenging times. I am very grateful for the creative person(s) that created headspace.
Design used to be minimalistic but not anymore 2/5
I have been using this app for more than an year now. It's designused to be so clean and minimalistic that I absolutely love it. Everyday I open the app and with one tap I start my meditation.
Now the design seems like calling for attention from everywhere. When I open the app now, My mind is like "Look here! look there" "more content here", which is exactly opposite of the only purpose of this app.
Great for anyone looking to get into meditating. 5/5
By The world is great
Thank you guys for creating this app. It has helped me to appreciate the day more and be a happier person no matter what the surrounding are.
Perfect app for getting into meditation 5/5
It changed my whole mindset and is very easy to use. Way worth it for $100 a year
Headspace has changed my life 5/5
This has been the most important change I have made in my life in many years. I have been using the app for a little over a year. Andy’s calming voice and his vast knowledge of mindfulness meditation is amazing. The changes were subtle in the beginning but as I grow and learn, my life is calmer, more in the moment and much less stressed. I cannot thank him enough for his guidance and this incredible Headspace journey. Thank you to all the others who participate in the group meditations. For those few minutes the feeling of unity is beautiful.
Great app but won’t let you cancel your subscription 3/5
It’s a great app with tons of guided meditations, but be careful it doesn’t let you to cancel your subscription in the middle of the subscription period and when I asked them they mentioned they have this condition in the agreement term. That doesn’t make sense to me first of all you should be free to cancel your subscription whenever you want and secondly who read all pages of agreement term and condition!! I sent them an email and asked them to remove cancel anytime from the the sign up page it’s really confusing.

This app helps me a lot but please make it more affordable
Overbearing paywall 3/5
I saw this as an ad on youtube and thought it would be nice. I deal with anxiety and sleep troubles and I’ve noticed that ambient sounds help. Downloaded it and had a little meditation session for 3 minutes, which was really nice. Wanting to see what else there was to offer i was met with loads of ‘subscribe to unlock’ on almost all of the options. I was kind of disappointed, i knew there would be some pay to listen stuff but nothing this excessive. Lovely art style and calm voices with many different types of things to choose from, from sleep to anxiety to meditation and many more. A nice thought to get but its a bit costly for me. I highly recommend though if you’re financially able too buy it
Lots of resources 5/5
I like this app bc there’s lots of subjects he addresses in the meditations. There are different kinds of resources too - meditations, educational videos, sleeping music/tones (which I find very soothing and helpful to get me into sleep) and more. I like his voice too. It’s soothing. Headspace has been a big help to me. I recommend this meditation app.
Andy is so wonderful and his voice is so calming!! My children, ages 10 and 5, listen to Andy and the sleep sounds to help us all relax and doze off!!! Worth every cent!!!
I’m a smol 4/5
I am not an adult yet but this helps me fall asleep and I’d like to listen to other things to help my anxiety but I cannot due to the subscription.
Use it almost daily and it is the key to my meditation practice!
Life Changing 5/5
Headspace absolutely changed my life! I have loved each and every second of using it. I have grown to be more aware, more attentive, and kinder to myself and others. The only thing I would ask is that there be more meditations and courses! A larger selection would be greatly appreciated. But I am still thrilled, nonetheless!
LOVE this app 5/5
Y’all. This App is honestly life changing. I work EMS and this means a mix of nights, days, meetings, and long 24hr+ shifts. The sleep casts have me comfortably asleep before they finish and they keep my naturally anxious mind from racing. The meditations are top notch, the “white noise” variants are excellent, and the courses have helped me become more self aware and better at managing my anxiety. I seriously can’t recommend this app enough. It’s the only App I pay for and it’s worth every penny.
To pricey 4/5
By Astro pig
I tried the free trial and was great but then it said 10 dollars a month for a meditation app. I just can’t see that being reasonable. Otherwise great app.
Other options that are cheaper 2/5
The subscription is way too pricey for the amount of content being offered. If this were to have a flat fee upon purchase, rather than a subscription fee, I would be more induced to buy the app.
Very Good 5/5
By Royal Africa
This app is good for meditation, but a little hard to navigate. I could use a better layout and an index.
Nice Work! 5/5
Love the ability to calm my mind when I need to. Best digital meditation app out there!
Everything is locked behind a subscription 1/5
By Snoke the sleepy
I use to listen to the sleepcast every night before bed it really helped with my mental state. Rain day antiques was my favorite. I left for a while and get I get back all the sleepcast are locked behind a subscription. I miss Henry. Will give five stars again when I can listen for free again.
Life Saver! 5/5
I suffer from chronic anxiety and head space has been a life changer for me. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to be more mindful and at peace with your mind.
more female voice 5/5
i want the female voice as an option for every meditation
You really need this app
It will help you rediscovered the most important things in life:balance, happiness, & impermanence.
Beautiful App 5/5
I recommend this app for anybody that is looking for mental clarity and stress reduction. Thank you Headspace👍🏼
“Here’s something to fall asleep to” I’m trying to strengthen my focus, not loose it. Literally the opposite of what I needed
Stress solver 5/5
By Sally fleperss
I like to use this app as soon as I wake up right after brushing my teeth.
Waste of space 1/5
This app is great until you have to pay, its way too expensive! After your first 10 sessions, the app is a pointless waste of space.
The best app ever! 5/5
I may not have a membership but there’s so much you can do without it! This app has also helped me a lot!
Review for incoming experienceno 5/5
So this is the first time I’ve tried anything like this I heard about it on my Sirius radio and I am terribly excited and look forward to seeing all of this Friday that everyone’s talked about and I’m not very tech savvy so I’m glad you were able to buy anything and I can enjoy calm thank you again
Garbage, everything is pay to play.
the one time i used this add was the one time i had a nightmare ❗️
Helps me feel so focused I love it!!!!! 5/5
By Instant Queen
It helps me clear my mind and a great way to start my morning feeling fresh and ready.
Life Changing 5/5
My mind is more calm. My family is noticing a difference. I no longer have huge mood swings and I am learning to control my emotions. I tell everyone I know about meditation now. My Life has completely changed and I am finding it easier to stay on my correct path now. Thank you 💙
I am having a wonderful experience with headspace. I feel calmer and I am on a goal to get off my anxiety meds completely. My doctor is happy with my progress and it is thanks to headspace!
Monthly charges don’t stop after canceling subscription 1/5
After a trial subscription to Headspace, I not to continue with the app. I cancelled my subscription through iTunes, as suggested, and indeed, the subscription was removed. The monthly charges to my American Express, however, were not. It’s been a year now, and I keep getting charged a monthly $12.99 -now having payed upwards of $150 for an app I do not want nor use. The company’s number does not connect you to a live person, and a letter to their snail mail address has gone unanswered. I have tried disputing the charge through my credit card company. And while the particular charge disputed gets removed, a new one appears the following month. Definitely not relaxing, and definitely uncool for a wellness app. As a psychologist, I’ve stopped recommending the app to my patients. It’s not worth the aggravation!
Please add landscape support for iPad. 3/5
By Stephen Che.
Great service! Wish the app would support landscape mode — doesn’t have to be elegant, I just want it to work!
Amazing Meditation App 5/5
By Nurse Monique
I love this meditation app so much it helps me relax more, I am a nurse and I feel so much tension and a little stressed at times at the end of the day or sometimes during the day. I made time to pray and meditate each morning and each night. I was looking for a meditation app that I can have all of my meditation needs met .. and I found Headspace. Omg I love it !! I love the Group Meditation in the mornings before I start my nurse shift..The developer voice Andy is on the app Given us our meditation dialogue for different topics on this app.from being stress or you need help being content or trying to get peaceful rest etc... he has an on this app is an amazing app.At night the most because my body is resting so I play Headspace sleep meditation , it puts me to sleep in a very calmly and Soothing mode .
Thank you Andy For That’s amazing app I will always be a customer to Headspace.
Meditation finally works for me 5/5
I’ve never really been into any sort of meditation and I’ve tried this app before without any sort of pay off. But this time using it I’ve noticed has worked so much better for me and I think that’s because I’m not trying to make anything happen with it. I’m simply doing what they say to in the exercises and it’s working so well. I feel calm and at peace after I meditate and this app does a great job of guiding you through the meditation.
Easy to follow 5/5
By Miss Seadog
Fits right into my routine with minimal effort. I look forward to every season.
I’m in love 5/5
This app is so unique because of the layout, the animations, the insane amount of meditation courses, and all the sleep features. I originally got this app just to learn how to meditate but now I’m taking the anxiety course, using the sleepcasts nightly, and am planning which courses to take next to improve my life. Any situation you could think of, they have a meditation for.
Less peaceful with every update 1/5
Headspace is losing its way. I am assaulted and barraged with overlays and pop-ups about unrelated or ancillary products and services when I just want to meditate. Congrats on making a formerly great mental health and relaxation tool frustrating and stressful.
By Geni Piek
I hate that the sleep stuff is not free it can be annoying I have hard time sleeping every night
It is helping a lot with sleep and it’s making me happier
This Works Great! 5/5
I got this app, to help me calm down after a workout. I’m very competitive and have a hard time getting back to indoor me. Usually, I would just take 5 deep breaths. However, it wasn’t working to well. I decided to look on the App Store. I didn’t find this app, but found it while playing another game on my Phone. This is amazing, and actually works. I recommend it!
Calming meditations 5/5
I used this & it worked so well and I’m a challenge to relax! 5/5
By speak out
This is actually the ONLY APP I’ve tried that works for me. Friends have tried to help by bringing me to various meditation venues, and I really wanted it to work! Nothing did until I tried Headspace. I’m a teacher on a tight budget so something has to REALLY be beneficial for me to sign up. Not only am I happy for myself, but I play it for my parents and use it regularly for my elementary school kids! Mind Up! is big seemingly everywhere but in the US for children during school. I’ve been an advocate for it in my school district and hope others can see and feel the benefits.
It surprised me 5/5
I never thought of myself as someone who needs to meditate. I’ve always felt I had a good grip on handling my daily stressors and keeping my head, but in the few days I’ve had this app it’s taught me that’s not what it’s about. The experience is well worth the money and the app is lovely. The art is attractive and calming, the voices are nice and feel good to listen to, and the messages are important. Some of it is a struggle to get my head around but I am happy to continue this journey.
I was having trouble sleeping and this app did the job
