  • Calm Turned My World Upside Down Sep 9, 2020

    By Capri 555
    This app absolutely changed my life. So much so, this is my first and probably only review on the app-store that I will ever write. I wanted to review Calm just in the hopes that someone from the team will see because I wanted to thank the Calm creators for saving my life. This has been the hardest year every and I was in a very dark place and hit my rock bottom. I didn’t want to be on this earth anymore, so I thought, why not try meditation? I have nothing to lose. I downloaded Calm, stuck with the 30 day intro program and I am hooked. I’ve had it for a few months now and I can’t say enough good things. I love the layout, the speakers, the variety, the scenes, everything. Meditation has taught me how to slow my mind and think about things from a different perspective. I have become self-aware and I am so grateful that I am learning these things now because I have already seen such a large improvement in my mental health and happiness. Thank you Calm creators, and thank you to whoever is apart of your marketing team because you saved my life! My only suggestion for an update to the app is a queue so you can set up multiple meditations to listen to in a row, for those of us who like to binge meditate :) If you are unhappy with your life, please just give this app a chance. It could be the answer you’re looking for. It could be your light in the darkness.

    By calm girl10
    I absolutely love love love this app!!!!♥️ once I could not go to sleep so I turned on some of the calm music and I fell asleep 10 minutes later. I was amazed. I have been getting better sleep since than. Also whenever I am feeling stressed or anxious about someone or something, I listen to one of the daily calms or the next day on the meditation trial. Right away it’s as if you were brought into some beautiful relaxing world where there are these voices saying “It will be ok no matter what. This will pass.” And it does its amazing how calming and peaceful this app is. Next, mood check in. The mood check in helps me express and release good and bad feelings and thoughts. Enjoy the good ones and let go of the bad ones. It even gives you a chance to write a little about them. It’s like your own personal diary, but way better. Last but definitely not least, I Believe this app can make you a better person. To be happier, to live life longer. It can be a real life changer. And just know that it’s never to late to start fresh again. It’s never to late to change yourself. But most of all, it’s never to late lo be the big change in the world, that you have wished for. And calm can help with all of that. This is a total recommendation for anyone.

  • Calm Review Sep 21, 2020

    By YourLocalCalmUser
    I really don’t like how you have to pay to get good stuff. That makes me stressed which takes away the purpose of the app Calm. Now, I understand that, with all of the items this app has, it has to cost money, but maybe, you could make more stuff free, like maybe a seven day program or something. Maybe that would hook more users and convince them to pay for the rest. Just a thought. Without paying, the only things you really can do are the daily check ins, the little reflection thing, and a timed meditation. Once someone gets bored of that, they’ll probably delete the app. You need a better way to get their attention. For example, I got the Sleep Cycle app, and I am very happy about it. It does have things that cost money, but not nearly as much money, or as many things that need money as Calm does. Most of the things in Calm cost a lot of money, and the things that are free are the things that aren’t the most helpful. Maybe this is an advertisement tactic? I’m not sure. However, in the Sleep Cycle app, the only thing that costs money is the Statistics which, honestly, I probably wouldn’t use that much. Also, it’s a lot cheaper. The things you can do without money are really cool; download the app to check it out! Over all, I have to give Calm three stars because of this, and it’s not just because it costs money, but also because of the amount of things that cost money and how much it costs. Sincerely, your local Calm user

  • Sleep, anxiety, & life saver all in one app May 24, 2020

    By CaylieHan
    Honestly, I had come to a point in my life where I insomnia and anxiety were at an all time high , I was on anxiety meds, sleep meds, anything they could do to try & get my anxiety and insomnia under control & even when the pills weren’t really helping, I decided to try this app out because even doctors had recommend it, while yes- price tag can seem like a lot, BUT I used this one night while my anxiety was setting in and I was asleep half way through the sleep story and when I woke in the morning I was in disbelief. Nothing, I mean nothing had helped me until I found this app. The meditation & sleep stories are amazing. I am so grateful for this app. Now, the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars would be due to a recommend I have for the creators, they should create a watch or something that can track your sleep & in the morning provide meditations, music, sleep stories that reflected how you slept the night before. For example, if someone woke up a lot, or of people were waking up frequently and having a hard time going back to sleep & maybe making suggestions for a meditation they could choose that one as more personal, or for anxiety with sleep or sleeplessness, things like that. I don’t know that would be my only recommendation, but overall and amazing app that’s worth the price.

    This app has had an incredible impact on my mental health and overall quality of life. It has changed my perspectives and state-of-mind in ways that have been beneficial to every aspect of my everyday life and well-being, in a countless number of ways. By committing to the habit and genuine effort to a mere 10 minutes of meditation a day, I have observed a significant change to the way my brain works and handles day-to-day tasks and situations. I have gained peace-of-mind, appreciation, more quality and meaningful time spent with my family, the ability to approach things in ways that are more practical and productive and less stressful.... And this is just to name a few ways meditation has been useful and life-changing. My 10yo son insists on using it before bed every night in order to help him unwind and get a better night’s sleep. I use it for tension relief and to soothe migraines, or to calm myself down when I’m angry or upset. The mind is so powerful and can truly enhance one’s quality of life and well-being in ways you could never imagine possible. By obtaining a better mindset and maintaining the ways in which your brain works and thinks, you can come to realize what sort of impact it can make on your overall health, happiness and life.

    Right away as a free user, there are little to none useful features, as for most of it is locked behind a pay wall. I'm a high school student that has focusing, sleep, and stress issues. But I don't own a credit card or have a job currently, so this app does little to nothing for me without the premium. Sorry, but I feel like this app causes more stress to just look for stuff not locked away rather then trying to falling asleep. I don't personally recommend this at all.

    I honestly really enjoy this app. The problem is the primary narrator. There is something about her voice or the way she speaks that honestly comes off as condescending, forced, disquieting and honestly fake. I know you can't help your voice, but maybe her sessions could all be recorded by an alternate narrator, so at least people have the option. I know this has been done on some series, please make it all, Tamara Levitt will be the reason I won't renew. That's a pretty easy problem to fix.

    Lots of potentially useful meditations, but little that you couldn't get from other places for free. Also, every time you do a meditation, the app nags you to share a meme about your meditation on your social media. It also constantly tries to get you to set reminders. If you say no, the app shouldn't keep asking you again until you say yes. I won't renew my subscription if I am expected to further advertise the app through my social media.

    For an app that I'm paying $70 a year for I would expect it to work better than free apps that I use. However this app is full of so many bugs such as: 1. Everytime I start the daily calm and click on the settings to change the scene volume, the app crashes. 2. The scene volume adjusts itself randomly to either very high or very low, and restarting the app doesn't fix it. 3. The app closes by itself during the night while I'm using the sleep sounds. 4. Some nights the sleep sounds are sped up.

    Downloaded the app and started the free premium version trial. After trial I would be charged around 59$ per month if I did not cancel. Opened the app to get to know the content and everything was locked. Nothing could play until I had the premium version. I clicked again on "start the free trial" thinking it hadn't worked the first time. Nope, I was charged $69.99. Funny thing is in my account details it still says I am in the free trial stage. Good luck getting ahold of customer service!

  • Helping High School Students Stay CALM Jan 27, 2020

    By amberkaymccoy
    I am a high school teacher at a high preforming high school in my area. My students are often so stressed out and sleep deprived I feel so helpless to help them. This year I decided to dedicate one day a week to meditating before we started class. We do this every Thursday for the first 10-15 minutes of class. The response has been so positive from my students I am thinking of doing it two days a week next year. The students LOVE Thursday!! They have told me it’s the favorite part for their week. Some students have even gotten the app for themselves. I have heard so many times this year, “I needed that!” or “I needed to hear that today.” After on session one of my boys said, “Man I was so upset about losing those 5 points on my English test and now I have let it go. This really works. What did you all think about?” You know you are doing something right when teenagers open up and start talking. Thank you for this product and allowing me the opportunity to give my students at least 15 minutes a week to destress, calm down, learn to love themselves and just breath! Can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me and my students as we take this CALM journey.

  • Meditation app w/ you in mind Jan 31, 2020

    By Cntygrl
    I recommend this app to anyone looking for a meditation app. I have even given gift subscriptions to friends looking to mediate because they are so in tune with their clients needs. They are always looking at feedback, offering content to meet needs and finding things to offer I didn’t even know I wanted. The narrators are wonderful & plentiful so if one doesn’t cut it for you, you can change. There is also calming sounds, perfect sleep stories and A daily check in to see how you feel and offer suggestions on what might help. Their Master classes are great for learning things like mindful eating, better sleep, how to relax, and even improving your performance in life. All star narrators like Lebron James, Matthew McConaughey, Lucy Liu, Bindi Irwin, Bob Ross, Jerome Flynn, Leona Lewis, Jason Kidd & more read sleep stories & give advice on how to improve aspects of your life. Sabrina Carpenter & Sam Smith give music mixes to help you sleep or relax. They even have a calm body to help you wake up, warm up/cool down from your workout, reset for the afternoon and wind down for the evening. This app is for your whole body not just your mind. Keep up the amazing work Calm. This app is worth every penny.

    I love this app! It does exactly what it says, "calm." However, a new update took off a number of soundscapes that were formerly available either completely or locked where they weren't locked before. The sounds and stories and meditations were already limited enough, now they're more limited. Secondly, while $60 per year for an app isn't necessarily unreasonable, I do think that there should be an option for that to be split into monthly payments rather than just outright.

This is great, they lock a lot of content unless you buy premium, but, you can play ALL KINDS of music, and speeches and books etc, and choose how long you want them to play for and a lot more. I haven't decided on if I'm going to get premium yet, but as a free user I can say.. I greatly appreciate an app that's made to focus on the positive in life. So, 4 stars.

  • Sleep Stories are AMAZING! Nov 20, 2019

    By TinySenshi
    This App is my absolutely favorite to use when I’m going to sleep. I got it solely for the sleep stories and I’m absolutely obsessed. It’s like being a kid again and getting a beautiful story read to you by a soothing voice. While I use the app mainly for sleep stories I’ve used the meditation, background music, and breathing exercise options on the app as well. I used to use Headspace for a lot of my meditation sessions but with Calm having so many additional features I switched over fairly quickly. The only problem I have with this app is that I can’t set up a playlist/cue of the stories I want to fall asleep to. Sometimes I can’t fall asleep right away so I have to go through the process of unlocking my phone, setting up another story, and trying to settle down once again just to set up another story to be read. It quickly becomes irritating, especially on nights when I can’t fall asleep easily and have to go through the process of setting up an additional three stories and eventually giving up in the end. So if that can somehow be added then it’ll get my full 5 stars. But having nights where I’m on and off my phone throughout the night definitely makes me feel frustrated enough to keep it at 4 stars.

  • helps u sleep, app needs options for personalization Oct 22, 2019

    By Sellsews
    I have had this app for more than a year and have very much enjoyed listening to many stories, perfect for lulling you off to sleep. I enjoy/prefer non-fiction stories and have heard all offerings multiple times. I find the whispered stories super creepy… But maybe thats just me. I haven’t listened to any music selections. For the high subscription price though, the app should be nearly perfect, when in fact there are features missing. First, I wish that they would allow you to remove the stories that you don’t care for from the “playlist” so you wouldn’t have to sift through them each time you look for something you want to listen to. Additionally they are EXTRAORDINARILY SLOW to add new stories so consequently I have listened to the same “favorite” stories many many many times. I wish also that there were an option to list stories by “newest” so if they do add a new one it will readily be evident. The “nap” stories should not be listed with the “sleep” stories, since those have a “wake up” feature at the end. With a few minor tweaks to allow a user personalize their preferences and more frequent content updates, this app could be exceptional.

    By a ds42gme
    Dear calm, I have had your app since my middle school years. I’ve got to say, your app was AMAZING with 15 sleep stories and 2 and 1/2 meditations, this wasn’t a problem for me because I also use headspace. Yes, they're your competition but I wasn't choosing sides. Anyways, over time you guys added feature that you really focused on for 2 weeks at a time and just gave up on it. Next, you decreased the amount of sleep stories which was ha a huge problem for me because I was NOT getting enough sleep to keep my grades up. It got so bad that I stole my mother's phone just to sleep (she Had the Premium subscription). So I was like, ”ok, I'll just use headspace ONLY for sleep and calm for meditation. Then, you took away the 7 days of calm AKA: YOUR MAIN TRIAL AND ONLY TRIAL MEDITATION LEFT after you premiumfied the 7 days of something (forgot). I mean like BRU, I have other options. I started using headspace which is a great alternative if you don't have much money. I recommend bringing back some stuff from premium and reduce the price. To counteract this, put one 15 second ad at the beginning. Of every session of meditation for people without premium. Therefore, there is more than one reason to get it and it's CHEAPER. That's a win-win situation. I hope you come to the right decision. Whatever it is, I probably wouldn't stop using the app. Thank you for your time.

  • Free features aren’t bad, but a few issues. Jan 31, 2019

    By Alice Valkyrie
    I recently re-downloaded this app and like the free features (when I downloaded it years ago one of my favorite features was “Scenes,” so as long as I have access to those for free, this app will stay on my phone). However, it’s a bit annoying that I now have a “Daily Calm Perception” notification on my screen that is locked and that I can’t remove. I don’t purchase app subscriptions, though I would be more than willing to support this app by individually buying content I was interested in as one-time purchases). If you don’t plan on allowing users to buy content separately, can you please at least give us the option to only view non-subscription content if we wish (with no content we can’t access clogging up the screen)? I read another review stating that some of the music was available to non-subscribers. It all appears locked for me. Can you clarify please? Also, are all 7 days for any of the meditations unlocked for free users? I just listened to the first day of “7 Days of Calming Anxiety” but I don’t think I can listen to the second one (or even repeat day one w/o subscribing, which is a bit ridiculous IMO). Please consider alternative payment models in the future. I’d love to support the app, just not with a subscription.

    I love this app, except when it continues after the selected meditation/story/song when I'm using it to fall asleep. Being jarred awake by a sound that's completely different from what you fell asleep listening to wakes me up sometimes to the point of not being able to fall asleep again. During the day, I love this app, but I paid for it to help me sleep.

    Support was pretty unhelpful. They're running a free year of service for people who have Amex, even if you currently have a subscription with them. My subscription is set to expire only a few days AFTER this offer expires and asked them for help after I followed the instructions and still tells me I'm not able. They told me exactly what I was caught on and closed the ticket. Thanks at least for making sure I don't subscribe again?? My therapist has been urging me to switch to Breethe anyway.

    I would love to explore my growth into this app if it wasn't a $70 lump sum investment. One weeks free trail is not enough time to judge the value this app will have in my life. I'd like to see monthly or even quarterly payment options. I'd happily pay for 3 months at a time. As a free user, I can't speak to its content. However, the sound scapes are great. Exactly similar to what you could get on any music streaming platform tho.

    I love this app and use it every night, but it has so many bugs. The app won't stop playing the background music even if you completely close the app on your phone. I've never seen another app behave like this. I have to go into the settings every morning and manually stop the background sounds, and then manually turn them back on again every night. Also the app is terribly slow and can take a very long time to respond. For an app I paid premium for, I'd expect it to work much better than this.

  • Most meditations guided by the same person Aug 6, 2020

    By Madelyn Michelle
    After having calm for several months now, I’ve enjoyed exploring to the variety of content from masterclasses to music to meditation. I also like the approach calm takes in encouraging you to develop your own daily practice of mindfulness. However, the main reason why I purchased calm was for the large library of meditations. However the bulk of new meditations come from the daily meditation which is always guided by the same person, Tamara Levitt. She also guides many of the meditation series they have available. Unfortunately I don’t enjoy how Tamara does her meditations and I find them more distracting than helpful. Because of this I find myself avoiding her meditations and whenever there is a choice for another voice I’ll pick it, but there are only so many of these. And, if you’re not doing the daily meditations, it doesn’t take too long before you feel like you’re running out of content. Calm is great if you enjoy Tamara’s meditations, but your kind of out of a deal if you don’t. I just think its unfortunate that there isn’t more variety in the voices available and authors coming out with new content. My wish would be for calm to at least have a second choice for the voice of the daily calm.

    Lots of potentially useful meditations, but little that you couldn't get from other places for free. Also, every time you do a meditation, the app nags you to share a meme about your meditation on your social media. It also constantly tries to get you to set reminders. If you say no, the app shouldn't keep asking you again until you say yes. I won't renew my subscription if I am expected to further advertise the app through my social media.

    For an app that I'm paying $70 a year for I would expect it to work better than free apps that I use. However this app is full of so many bugs such as: 1. Everytime I start the daily calm and click on the settings to change the scene volume, the app crashes. 2. The scene volume adjusts itself randomly to either very high or very low, and restarting the app doesn't fix it. 3. The app closes by itself during the night while I'm using the sleep sounds. 4. Some nights the sleep sounds are sped up.

    I have insomnia, and a friend suggested I try Calm. I figured no harm no foul, worst case scenario it doesn’t help at all. So I’m all excited to maybe get more than the usual hour or two of sleep, I download the app. And boom, I’m supposed to pay $70 for a subscription just to sleep better. As someone who struggles with a sleep disorder, this just seems like being taken advantage of so someone can sit back and make their money. Also, with COVID-19 going on and so many people such as myself out of work, the least you could do is offer a promo, or something more enticing than 7 free days. A week is literally nothing when you have to pay a YEARLY, not monthly, subscription, especially for the price. I just don’t understand how someone’s well-being and mental health can have a price tag, much less how anyone could exploit that for their own gain. Extremely disappointed, but also not trying to change anyone’s mind. Try it for yourself, and if you have the money to spend, it appears that the app works judging off of other comments I’ve read. I just think the app could be even more accessible with either a lower subscription price, or the ability to listen to some of the stories without having to buy premium.

    Why do you have to charge $70? I loved it two years ago when it was cheaper. I got sick and had to let it lapse and now I go back to get back to the app to find it’s now so expensive. You won’t even look at my comment because you’ll see all the other comments and skip mine because it’s solely about money in an already greedy world. You don’t even offer a monthly plan. Otherwise, I would have given a five star!!! But the cost turns my stomach on principle! There are many people with high anxiety and insomnia that this app might reach and help, and you’d be doing such a great thing for those people if this wasn’t so expensive all upfront! I thought that was what Calm was all about....helping! I’ll look for another 5 star app! I will be deleting this app. You even took away the content I downloaded from when I had paid!!! I know you have to make money, but $70 and no way to do a monthly plan means you’re going to loose people. But with all the 4’s and 5’s, you won’t care about and comments that have to do with pricing as I’ve seen your stock answer to the other complaints about the same issue!! So people who can’t afford don’t count to you! Until they do, you’ve lost my business!!
