Best meditation app 5/5
I have tried many meditation apps and this one it by far the best! Great teachings, I highly recommend to anyone whose been wanting to learn to meditate and those who are struggling to stay with the practice
Total scam 1/5
This app is not worth the 99 or 59 or 69 dollars—whatever they decide to try to charge you that day. Don’t even bother downloading; it will be a complete waste of time. Like a timeshare presentation.
Absolutely worth a try 5/5
Definitely give this app a try, it’s the only one that made meditation make sense to me.
I originally was critical after it seemed like they removed some free options, but customer service reached out and made sure it was still available to me. Kind people, with a good app. Give it a shot.
I find the app excellent. It’s constantly new and interesting. One of the few apps I pay for.
I rely on this to shape my meditation 5/5
This app makes it easy to connect with remarkable teachers. Their influence is hard to fully estimate because of the perspective-shifting element. My meditation practice is often bookended by a morning session and a bedtime soothe. I value it greatly, even after 30-some years of meditating, because it introduces new ideas and structure to my game.
Update not working 4/5
The update to the app from the iTunes App Store is failing. I am not sure if it’s my device or the app itself.
This app is a really wonderful app when it is working. I rely on it to get my calm time everyday.
Simple, clear guidance 5/5
I love the sequential nature of the short video sessions in the app. This is just what I need on my meditation journey. It’s very accessible - simple guidance.
Life changing 5/5
By Sorese J
I know people say it all the time that meditation changed their life but it really can.
Ten Percent Happier can change how you look at both good and bad situations that life throws at you.
Couple this with the 10 percent podcast to get the full benefit.
Enjoying My Quiet Time 5/5
I enjoy all the content of 10% Happier. And I love the new look of the app. I wish you much success. Thank you for all that you do to help me deal with the daily stress of life. I’ve finally made meditation a daily habit.
Love this Meditation App! 5/5
I’ve been trying to get into meditation for decades and have never been able to “get it”. I researched “meditation” at the library and found Dan Harris’ excellent book “10% Happier” which took me on his journey towards mindfulness, meditation, and enlightenment. The book’s appendix on how to meditate was especially helpful and succinct. I found this app by chance, and although I initially paused at paying an annual subscription fee, I have found it to be worth many times more.
I was charged before the end of my trial I want a refund 1/5
I tried the app once it was great and I thought I would be able to keep up but I didn’t use it ever again after that, I set up an alarm to remind me to cancel Incase I was not able to keep using it and I was charged an annual subscription before the end of the trial. Apple store doesn’t want to refund my money, I want my money back, I don’t want to buy the app.
Top of the Line 5/5
This is by far the most comprehensive meditation app I’ve seen and used. The combination of the user friendliness of the app and the valuable meditations and teachers simply makes the app a powerful tool to make your life better and still.
Just makes everything better 5/5
Really enjoy the course and the different teachers. As I do it regularly, could just be coincidence but things just seem to come together when I stay consistent with it
Amazing app 5/5
By strider schulte
This has helped me so much to develop my skills in meditation. Love the courses
Great app great teachers 5/5
Highly recommend for anyone learning to meditate
A lot of content to manage 4/5
I've been subscribed since the beginning of the year, and overall it's been a great experience. Since the redesign though, I'm finding myself missing the sort and search functions. In the "singles" section, there is so much, it's really hard to find what you are looking for just by scrolling. Having search and sorting helped bring meditations with different features to the front.
Alternatively, if there could be some sort of "help me pick a meditation" feature, that would be even better. You could put in "I have x minutes" and "I want to work on: focus/relaxation/loving-kindness" or "I'm struggling with: stress/pain/distraction" or "my favorite teacher is: Joseph/Sharon/Oren/etc..." and it could pull up suggestions for things that fit that criteria.
Second, it would be really helpful to be able to organize favorites somehow. After a while the list starts to get pretty long, with different sessions for different situations. Being able to make different buckets would be helpful.
The meditations are really top-notch and I can see myself sticking with it for quite a while.
Got tricked into resubscribing 1/5
Icon hangs out in your Subscriptions and if you click it, it re subscribes you
If I can be made to believe, then anyone can! 5/5
By barn stapleton
I always had my doubts and never really let myself completely get into the mindset for enlightenment, I can honestly say that after a few minutes with this app I am much calmer and more in tune with my thoughts and inner self, only time will tell if it’s actually useful, however I urge anyone and everyone to at least give it a chance!
George Mumford 5/5
George, one of the many instructors on 10% Happier takes a very pragmatic approach to mindfullness which is anything but crunchy granola. His is a very practical wisdom. I’d love it if they embarked on more series with him.
Good meditations, but political 3/5
The meditations are nice, however they (developers) are pretty woke so expect to hear their opinion on politics, which really has no place in mindfulness in my opinion. Cancelled subscription for this reason, getting very hard to just find someone to provide a service or product without their social/political commentary.
Email address for License agreement doesn’t exist 1/5
In trying to avoid any unapproved charges after downloading the app, I found an email address for questions in the license agreement information. The email I sent bounced with the message, “This email address doesn’t exist.” I am still trying to delete my account unsuccessfully.
Excellent resource 5/5
By Nina Lil
This is the best app I have used in my pursuit to building a meditation habit. The design is well laid out, and I the sessions I love the best are the 5 minute ones -I can always carve out several 5 minutes during my day to practice. Sometimes even longer. The lack of music reminds me that I am not sitting here trying to get distracted, but I do wish there was a recognizable chime at the end of each meditation to indicate my time is up and bring me out of my trance.

Just what I needed to begin again
Best meditation app ever! 5/5
This app has definitely helped me overcome a lot of strong and negative emotions I’ve felt in the past. Very relatable, funny, witty, and exciting. I’m grateful for being able to come across this app. It’s never leaving my phone or my sight! 5/5!
Life-saving ❤️🌈🙌 5/5
By Doc Fischbach
I am going to go ahead and credit this app (and therapy) for being partially responsible for my current success at sobriety, and in life.
It might sound sensational or crazy but I don’t care. For the last four years I have been fighting a meth addiction coupled with bad binge drinking and a life-long problem with sexual trauma.
I almost lost my job and thought the police were somehow after me. This app has revolutionized my life and really helps me stay clean on a daily basis. Especially the session under the “Basics II” called “Presence vs Mindfulness”. It taught me a concept that should be obvious but really isn’t regarding the powerlessness of our thoughts when we are aware of them.
If you’re struggling with some impulsive actions or process addictions, seriously take a chance on this app.
Not a paid review, just a happy gay dude in Denver that finally found what was missing. ☺️☺️
I feel like I won the jackpot 5/5
The people that offer guidance on this app are the preeminent teachers of meditation in the western world. I started out meditating years ago under the guidance of Joseph Goldstein and his colleagues, and I’ve been chasing that kind of eloquence and help ever since. I can’t believe it’s here on an app. Not only have I been able to restart a practice that’s languished, I feel like I learn something every time I use it. The gradual immersion, the little encouragements, Dan Harris’s role as our skeptical surrogate - it all works beautifully. The gamification stuff (like counting a streak) actually helps, too. Thank you, Dan Harris and 10 percenters.
P.s. those stock photos on the app (they are, aren’t they?) made me think this was another bunch of New Age Andean flute music. I am so glad I ignored that and dived in.
Life Saver--Literally! 5/5
Dan, Oren, Joseph, Cheryl & friends are my constant companions as I navigate through the greatest challenge of my life.
Knowing I can count on them to steady me, show me the path, enlighten me, and believe in myself and my abilities has made a HUGE difference!
I am forever grateful to all of you--those who are in front of the camera and behind the scenes--for bringing your good work to the world...to me.
Worth every penny 5/5
I came to this app after listening to the audiobook. I have very, very much enjoyed the guided meditations, and the courses have been so helpful. I’m so glad to have this.
Wonderful app 5/5
Have been doing meditation for a couple years now and I find this particular app to be immensely valuable. The sheer volume and variety of mediations and meditation teachers make this a perfect fit for daily use.
So helpful 5/5
By abs ld tb
Very calming and gets to my core issues in a loving way
Too much talk and intro 1/5
Just way too much talk and trying to be chummy. The voices could use better production quality. Needs more variety in the voices, it’s a lot of guys. Meh. Not enticed.
In control 5/5
I have learned how to meditate and listen to my thoughts and feelings. Thank you.👍💕
Love this app overall! 5/5
This app is fantastic and I use it every single day. The only small gripe I have is that I can’t listen to Koshin’s talks or meditations. His voice is cringeworthy to me and the vocal fry is the complete opposite of calm and relaxing. Except for that, everything is perfect!
Simple and Compounding 5/5
Love the progressive steps toward becoming more mindful every day. The Basics is exactly where I should have started!
Too little 3/5
This is an app jam packed with so much wonderful content but if you don’t pay the price (100 a year) than you get really only a small fraction of it. I feel the upgrade version should be more of an upgrade rather than “pay to get everything this app offers”
Great app and great user experience! 5/5
Great meditation app and the recent redesign of the app is really exceptional! Bravo!
Thoughtful, high value app 5/5
I love how this app opens up so many ways to connect with meditation. The teachers are excellent, the new UI is much better. Overall a great value when considering how rich the sessions are. Highly recommend this app at any price! Life is too short to not have it.
After 2 Years I’m Done 1/5
By James Sonny Crockett
Has devolved into meditation for snowflakes. Dropping app after the latest “meditation for global warming claptrap.” Nice idea ruined by SJW‘s.
Love it! Want more 5/5
I love this app. It’s my favorite because of Joseph Goldstein. He is fantastic!! I just wish they had more guided meditations from him.
Helpful in many areas 5/5
Whether you have trouble relaxing, sleeping, communicating with others or centering yourself there are many ways to help yourself become a happier, better person who is more peaceful.
Amazing content. Auto-renews @$100 annually. 1/5
I did the free ones (there are maybe 7 free ones) again and again. If those are all you ever do, totally worth it to download the app. After using the free ones for several months, I bought the 1 year subscription. I am getting a lot out of each session. Short, well paced. Quality content.
For the app itself, I would give 5 stars. However, I REALLY wish it wouldn’t auto renew at the end of a year. I would have bought it the first week if it didn’t auto-renew. For that reason, I can’t recommend it to anyone else. No one should sign up for something that auto-renews annually for $100. No-one. I did. I love the app. But that sets people up for an annual $100 surprise. Charge $100 for the app and keep it up to date. Let people sign up for 1 year and give them a discount code for the next year.
So Worth It!!! 5/5
The 10% Happier book was recommended to me as I was struggling deeply with anxiety and depression. I started reading the book but, as I am an extremely slow reader, at a certain point in the book (once you realize that it’s meditation that makes Mr. Harris 10% Happier), I wanted to know how to utilize it in my life. At that point, the thought of being left alone in silence in my own head seemed like a terrifying idea. “I already spend too much time in there,” I thought. However, I decided to do the 7 day free trial and see what it was all about. I was told that this app might be better received by men, but I’m a young woman that prefers this app over others that I was told would be geared more toward women. I LOVE the fact that every session has an intro video for the person to hear about the meditation they’re about to practice. I’m so happy to report that the hype in my head that this would be a scary experience, was in fact wrong. This app has become my GO TO for relaxation, acceptance of my feelings, and the tool to help me process my thoughts and emotions. It seems a little spendy at first, but when you break that year subscription down by month, it’s really not bad and also, worth every penny!
My First Year with 10% Happier 5/5
By Not to Busy to Relax
10% Happier offers options for the newbies as well as the more seasoned meditators through a variety of topics it addresses as well as the formats these topics are introduced to the audience. The courses, that’s what the series of sessions facilitated by experienced and well-known meditation gurus are called, explore universal topics through a brief two-minute conversation with the teacher that leads to a guided meditation part. There are daily sessions that vary in topics that they address with duration options that the audience can select, usually ranging from five minutes up to half an hour.
After a year of having the 10% Happier app on my phone, and being able to access the meditation sessions through the WiFi or after downloading them, I have created a daily routines that include meditation, and I am looking forward to meditating anywhere and anytime. Convenient, well-organized and practical, 10% Happier supports my learning in mindfulness daily.
I love this 5/5
By happy meditater
I love this app. I almost never meditate but when I do I love it. If you have a busy day or stressful anything then I totally recommend this. My favorite ones are the sleep ones. By the end I am always asleep!
Please make an iPad App
10% Happier 5/5
So far so good! I just started this app a few days ago, but I’m enjoying the skills and practice of thoughtful & purposeful meditation. Looking forward to seeing how I behave in a month.
Update 6/6/19 This app is beyond incredible and has helped me to focus and become more aware and less reactive of things. Especially when they’re stressful.
Mediation Skeptic 5/5
I am not one to meditate or to think that meditation is ever necessary. But I decided to give this a try and it is quite impressive how effective it is to take simply 5 or so minutes to meditate. It is truly relaxing. And the guided mediations are quite helpful. Especially for someone as ADD as I am. I could not meditate any more than I could fly. Great app.
Love the app. 5/5
5 Star. The short talks are getting better and better. Koshin is a new favorite
Great content and no search feature 3/5
6/5/19 Updating my previous review. The search feature is gone again, you need to scroll through tons of meditations to find what you want. Although in the “ Whats new” section there is note stating they are bringing the search feature back, and that you just need to scroll to the bottom of single courses to find it, it has two seriously frustrating issues: one is that there is no search feature that I can find, two, WHY in the world would the search feature be placed at the bottom, forcing people to scroll down pages and pages and pages of single meditations? It defeats the purpose of having a search feature! Its one of the if not the the most important features in an app, to actually easily find what you want. Love the content.
Updating my previous review, where my only, albeit extremely frustrating issue with the app was the difficult cluttered interface. The app always had wonderful content, but finding my favorite simple meditations was... just excruciatingly complicated.
That has ALL changed! Meditations can be searched now, and in various ways. The new improvements make this app an absolute and perfect gem. I loved the content from the get go
but now I love the app, too, so this became my go to app now.
Do yourself and those around you a favor and give this app a go!
