Amazing app, this app has impacted my life and that’s a pretty strong statement for an app. Without this app I don’t know if I would have made meditation a practice. I recommend it to my friends and coworkers. Thank you for putting this app together.

This app is great
Evil to make night mode cost so much/trial useless 1/5
Had finally decided to give the app a go as I’m struggling with an extreme migraine aura and would love to keep it from developing into a migraine. I usually turn things onto a darker mode if possible in this situation & will just not use an app if it’s glaring bright.
Well this app offers a night mode “for night owls and early risers”. Well what about migraine sufferers who don’t want to pay $59+ to be able to use your app to meditate for pain, as you keep pushing it’s so fantastic for?
The signups & intro screens are darkened nicely, before, so you’re lulled into a false sense of comfort then suddenly it’s SCREAMING WHITE PINK YELLOW TRIAL MONEY MONEY MONEY. Ugh.
Also super despise apps that try to sneak around the pushy constant app review begging I’ve deliberately turned OFF by putting it onto every screen for signups, settings, faqs, etc. Not fooling anyone, no matter how polite you think you’ve worded it, even if it’s not a pop up or window, still begging & still isn’t appropriate.
Miserable app supposed to help but just making things more frustrating. Nope. I will not get sucked into your trial to accidental mortgage cost auto renewal after a WEEK. (Might as well have a 7 MINUTE trial for something like this meditation app. You’d never really know if it’s helpful/something you’d REALLY use a LOT after 7 days - everyone thinks they will & can be consistent for about a week, but then there is no decent intermediate trial/subscription (that I can find). A week free or a fifty-nine dollar year. Yuck. Worse than a gym membership.)
I very very rarely (negatively or otherwise) review things I’m not super excited about, or really hopeful for, or perhaps something that needs some help for it to be awesome, but this app just really really hit a cranky nerve today, after having it on my phone & watch unopened for weeks, I was hoping to give it a go finally. Oh well. Back to streaming hit or miss videos elsewhere with a free night view.
Love the timer 5/5
By Maria Regina Paiz
What I love about this app is that it allows me to use the timer, with interval bells, without forcing me to pay for a subscription. Also, there are many free guided meditations available. I also like that it tells me how many days in a row I have kept up my practice. Thanks!
So helpful!! 5/5
By Novice runner 1984
Great App!! I love the vast variety of meditations, music and sounds. I use it to calm myself when stressed, get my day started after I wake up and use it to help me fall asleep. There are great Loving Kindness meditations and positive morning affirmation meditations. I also greatly appreciate the rating/star feature and the feedback from users to help decide if that is the type of meditation I am looking for. I love the app and use it often!
The best site ever! 5/5
It is the best site I have used! It is easy to manage and organized by minutes if I need that. Also organized by person. Or by topic if I want to choose.
The best app, ever! 5/5
Hands down, the BEST meditation app! ✨
Life changing 5/5
Never thought I’d say that about an app and be serious. But I love Insight Timer. I have chronic insomnia and sleep apnea as well as fibromyalgia and anxiety. Since using this app for sleep I would say I have felt the most rested I’ve been in the last 15 years. Highly recommended app, wonderful selection and people in the community.
A gift 5/5
Insight Timer is truly a gift.
Absolutely necessary 5/5
Insight Timer has saved my life. I am so thankful for meditation. After years of chronic pain I am finally starting to heal from within. So many instructional meditations and podcasts for adults and kids. Everyone needs this.
Great app! 5/5
I love this app for meditation. There are so many great free guided meditations. I really like the deep sleep meditations.
Thanks bells and all 5/5
I love this app and I’ve recommended to others who love it too. Been using it for a couple years and it helped me get through a rough time with a morning meditation when it was hard to get out of bed because I dreaded going to work. There are tons of free meditations. The bells are awesome and have helped me with sleep in the past and to set my mood at work. They’ve started to shift towards member-only (if you pay the subscription) which is fine. I’m considering getting the subscription. They were free for so long and provided this amazing resource so I’m happy to know they’re getting compensation for all the labor and positive impact they’ve made on my life and so many others.
So valuable 5/5
By HH the painter
I use it daily. The timer is superior to a regular timer with the lovely chimes for beginning and ending, interval tones for reminding during a meditation. But the library of guided meditations is so rich that this free app is probably the most generous thing out there. There is also a modest social component which I don't use much but it is nice to see all the others engaged in meditation simultaneously, around the world. To boot, I’m a therapist who uses mindfulness in my work and wind up recommending this app to every client, both for the timer and for some of the specific guided meditations which I’ll recommend to support their therapy work at home. Highly highly recommend it.
Needs forwarding & backing options 4/5
By Good Teaching
Needs what is stated above
Good, but support should be better 3/5
I have used this app for years. I like the simple timer. I don’t need all the fancy stuff. I got locked out of my account and I got no response from support whatsoever. I have lost my milestones and i am starting over with a new account. Beginners mind. :-)
For Beginners 5/5
I’ve been meditation pretty consistently since November 2018 and have noticed a lot of improvement in my awareness! I have been meditating on and off for over a year. I started off with guided meditation and now I mainly use the timer!
I hope to continue to expand my awareness and continue to transform myself.
The best meditation app out there 5/5
Simple design that help keep you meditating.
I loved this app until the recent changes! 4/5
I liked the ability to just quickly find a meditation based on how much time I had and what was most popular. Now i have to sort through 200 “benefits” (ie: anxiety, sleep) to move on to the time and other filters. In addition, you can no longee jusr buy one course for 4.99. Now you have to sign up for a year for $60 in order to listen to one class. Please switch it back to the old way for searching and bring back the option to buy just one class! Thanks
Keeps getting better 5/5
I love the variety of meditations and teachers. I’m also so happy to see that courses are now free for premium subscribers. I’ve used Thus app for a long time and it has consistently found ways to improve while also keeping access free to those who don’t want or need the premium features. Thank you for a truly helpful, well intentioned app!
I love this app 5/5
By A trivia crack addict
It has the best all around choices for whatever my little Buddha heart desires!
Love this app with variety of different meditations.
By dampened spirits
I started my day w/ meditation in thanks to my God, I think I think I have a new found addiction his name is I AM.
This app has been the key to my meditation practice. I love the versatility of options. There is a meditation for everyone, and a tracker to help you see your meditation habits easily. Highly recommend 🙏🏻
I appreciate insight timer!!!! 5/5
By K Lynette
I also appreciate mostly everything being free and such a vast variety of meditations; its a blessing; I thank my beautiful friend for recommending it!!!!!!
Key to more peaceful days & deeper sleep 5/5
My motivation to start meditating was trouble “turning off” my thinking mind that kept me awake at might. This site has many helpful meditations. One that is amazingly powerful in helping me get to sleep and awake refreshed is “Yoga Nidra for Sleep.”
Love this app so much! 5/5
Has been amazingly helpful to me and so easy to use!
Love! This app has everything you need and it’s free. I swear one meditation a day makes me feel so much more grounded. I’m super grateful for this app (:
Meditation for everyone 5/5
By Like listening to good friends
I found this app in a mindfulness magazine in my therapist’s office and decided to give it a whirl. It offers so many meditations with so much variety. I look forward to using the app even if it’s for a quick 5 minutes, there are mediations to fit however much time you have. Love this!
My favorite app 5/5
I love this app! It has so many meditations and the filter helps me find just what I’m looking for. There is great diversity and I’m always finding new folks to follow.
I love it 5/5
This has helped so much
Love Insight Timer! 5/5
I’ve been a fan for 7 years! Insight Timer has amazing guided meditations; you can also meditate in silence or to the sound of Om or to chimes in the background. It is free which is awesome and I simply love meditating with this app. 💖💖💖💖💖💖
I paid for this app, and it stopped working 1/5
By Owen T Brown
I pad for this app. Now, they force you to register. Not appreciated. 1-star.
Love this app!
Recommending Insight Timer 5/5
I teach meditation at Canyon Ranch in Tucson and before each class, introduce Insight Timer as a valuable tool for building a sustainable practice when the guest returns home. Magnificent!
I love this app - so glad I found it 5/5
I have been meaning to start meditating and was told about this app by a person which I was interviewing with for a job.
This app is amazing, so many options. This app has helped me get better sleep and I have also started several of their courses which have helped be tremendously.
Thank you for this app. It has helped me allot in the short time I have use it.
I am currently on the 7 day trial but I will definitely be signing up for the yearly subscription. I know it’s not for everyone but it’s well worth it to me.
Oh, I got the job too :)
Great way to help myself relax and focus 5/5
Insight timer is a fabulous free app which is helping me to be more relaxed and focused. I find myself wanting to get up and meditate each morning when I wake up. A great way to start my day!🙂
Wonderful way to learn to meditate 5/5
By kindly doctor
I’m a psychologist and often encourage my clients to meditate. This the first app I recommend. There is so much you can try for free. I use it enough that I’ve chosen to support it with the small $5/mo fee which goes directly to these generous teachers and musicians. May the positive energy generated by this app benefit all who come here and the world as a whole! Thank you.
Everyone should have the Insight ap 5/5
By Meg Rima
Everyone should have the insight app whether they are brand new to meditation or I have been at it for a long time. The ability to use the simple timer for a silent meditation is great paired with the multitude of types of meditations is fantastic. I’ve been a Insight user for several years and still love it. Thanks Insight app.
Beauty of the Spoken Word 4/5
I’ve been enjoying this service for several months. Most meditations have met me where I am.
My desire is to find meditations that are presented without the use of background music, sound or noise.
I am part of your aging audience with decreased ability to hear and/or understand sound, be it words, music or the daily sounds of life. The simpler the presentation the easier it is to follow.
Thanks for considering my request.
An Avid Meditator
So much wondering content FREE 5/5
The free version has literally tons of content: guided meditations from teachers such as Kristen Neff, Tara Brach and Sara Blondin, Courses, Groups and a simple meditation timer with various choices of background sounds and music. Highly recommended for beginning and advanced meditators.
Wonderful Resource 5/5
Beyond the meditation timer, this app is a vast resource of guided mediations, teachers and online community. I can feel the positive intentions behind the app and so using Insight Timer feels nourishing rather than draining, as many other apps do. I’m grateful Insight Timer has been created.
My favorite app! 5/5
My very favorite app!
I love this app and would love it more with Alarm settings 2/5
So I am not sure if I’m missing it or if it hasn’t been incorporated into the app yet. If not, could an ALARM setting be added to this app. I want an alarm prompted with my selected meditation to play at whatever time I chose. This would make such a difference and have a smooth transition in the mornings.
Please let me know if I missed this someone where, I turn hate the idea of having to go to a different app for this one feature.

I love Peter’s guided meditation.
I love it! 4/5
I love it & use it daily!
Can’t do anything without an account 1/5
You can’t do anything in this app without creating an account. I have enough random accounts already, thanks. I was just hoping to use an app without extra hassle.
Amazing variety 4/5
By feeling goid
I have been on meds for 18 years for anxiety and depression and had to come off cold turkey not willingly. With all that I was going through for the past year with withdrawals and my emotions completely out of wack I found meditation. I’ve tried many other apps and not only was it hard to find a free one with many benefits but also hard to find any that worked. I continually use this app everyday for the past nine months to calm my anxiety and make it more manageable and my depression is gone. I use it for sleep and for whatever I find I need help in for that day. I have recommended this app to others and will continue to do so. Thank you all the teachers at insight timer for helping this girl find her peace.
Great app 5/5
Best meditation app out there. Especially that it’s ad free and automatically records the time length of my meditation sessions
