    Treating your insomnia is one thing but getting your restless kids to bed is a whole different ball game. A good bedtime story is the tried and tested solution but, if you don't always have time for it, Calm can help both you and your restless kids to hit the bed.

    Moving to a new location where you have to adapt to the new weather is stressful. It could take you more than 2 weeks to adapt, and along with it are sleepless nights where you just couldn’t find those Zzzzs. Calm is one of the apps that can help you adapt easily.

    Life won't always be a bed of roses. When you're on call 9-5 every day, 7 days a week, you've got to take out time to attend to your mental health. Your mind is as important as the body and needs all the mental support it can get. This will help.

  • So relaxing and amazing Apr 11, 2020

    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.
  • 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.
  • Worth so much more than I ever imagined May 26, 2019

    By rknaakable
    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.
  • Great but needs more voices Dec 3, 2020

    By nmbr1sk8r
    I love this app and use it all the time. Loads of new content added constantly. The length of the meditations is perfect. I love the series like 7 days of calm, 7 days of sleep, etc. the breathing exercises are so helpful. One area for improvement would be that currently most of the meditations, especially new content, is narrated by the same woman. It would be really helpful if these same sessions were recorded with a male voice, so listeners could have an option. It would also be helpful if there were a more diverse selection of voices throughout the meditations. (This is done in the master classes and sleep stories, but I’d like to see it in the meditations too). A second area would be a review of the content of the gratitude meditations, which make assumptions and are therefore injurious for some listeners. For example I am in the middle of fighting a long term disease. Suggestions like you should be grateful for your health are not helpful and actually harmful for me. I’d really like to cultivate more gratitude but I can’t get through any of these meditations without being triggered. A review by someone working with diverse populations could help this. Other than this, I love the app. It has been designed so well and my mental health has improved dramatically since starting to use it. Highly recommended!

    Honestly want to love this app because the interface does as described and gives a sense of "calm" but it just really misses the mark. The meditations are around 10 minutes long, but more than half of the time is dead air. This isn't guided meditation, it's dead air breathing exercises. If you cut down all the gaps, this would easily be 5-star. Great ambient noise.
  • 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.

    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.
  • 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.

    It's just ok. There are so many things to choose from that I stayed awake just trying to pick something to listen to. I really dislike that all of the daily meditations are the same lady - her voice grates on my nerves. Some of the sleep stories are really educational so they kept me awake 🙄 I don't know, it just doesn't do it for me. I'm super annoyed that I was forced to pay so much for a year subscription with no monthly option. I'm uninstalling.
  • My doctor recommended it to me and I love it Feb 6, 2021

    By Hobokittycat
    I’ve always struggled with anxiety and not being able to calm down. All of the features which this app has to offer really help me when I’m studying (I like having soundscapes or music on), relaxing (breathing exercises or meditation), and getting ready for bed (sleep stories and body scans). It is so worth it to pay for the subscription, and even before I paid for the subscription (my doctor recommended the app to me not knowing I had the free version of it for about 3 years already) there was a lot of content available. I love the calendar features as well, and the check-ins are a great way for me to reflect on my day and practice gratitude. One suggestion I have though are podcasts! I like to listen to people talking about any subject while I’m doing tasks around the house or just trying to sleep (sometimes the silence is a lot and I can’t focus on sleeping with my thoughts). If you guys made some soft spoken or any kind of podcast in which there wasn’t a lot of yelling and loud talking, I’d totally listen in. (I know there are some masterclasses and lesson type things available on the app already, but they’re just not podcasts)

    I downloaded this app because it said it was free and it looked like something I could use to help with my anxiety disorder and insomnia. No it is free 7 day trial then 69.99 for a year. Saw that was the price for premium so thought maybe it is like a lot of apps a few things free and better things under the premium. Nope EVERYTHING IS LOCKED unless you PAY for it. That is not free. I have no issue with the cost, but with the bait and switch you pull. Not even going to try it now.

    By Andra Clark
    I love the sleep stories. But the app itself has gotten progressively worse over the two years I have been using it. It is slow and clunky and the user interface has gotten cluttered and cumbersome. I repeatedly report my unhappiness with the "improvements" but nothing changes. I ask for the ability to customize - nope. The latest update has pretty much rendered it unusable on my tablet. It tries to open and just shuts right back down. This is definitely not calming. Edit: Still not fixed

    I paid a lot for this app and it's performance is pretty disappointing. It no longer plays meditations after my phone screen goes to sleep. Sessions always cut off about a third of the way through. Would love to get a refund and try switching to Headspace. Hard to calm down and clear my mind when I'm constantly frustrated with this app.
  • Nov 16, 2021

    By Tiffany Roetken
    My main gripe about this app is that your can't create playlists so that you can listen to multiple stories, classes, meditations, etc, one after the other. If I'm having trouble sleeping, which is when I use this app, I have to constantly open my phone and X out the "Still Awake" screen. Yes, still awake and having to stay awake to find something else to listen to! Also, if you don't like Tamara Levitt, good luck. She is the most featured creator.

    The fact that I have to sign up AS A SUBSCRIPTION before even sampling the app completely put me off. If you want me to buy something, I have to know what I'm buying. And I know how it works - a certain number of people will sign up, then forget and the auto-payments will continue, giving you guys free money. Far as I'm concerned, THAT'S A SCAM.

    Calm does not turn off if you disconnect headphones. This presents an issue if you're using BT headphones and are listening to Soundscapes, which play perpetually, and will waste your phone's battery. Basically, it doesn't behave like every other app that plays audio behaves. The offerings themselves are nice but the UI is very clunky. For example in the Meditation tab, you have to scroll all the way to the right just to see offerings from guest instructors.
  • App is in accessible for blind user, buttons unlabeled Apr 29, 2021

    By Apelli0727
    Hello, I really like the content on your app and it has really helped me to develop my practice. However because of the issues described in the title I probably will no longer subscribe to calm next year. I am blind, and use the screen reader voiceover. I can play the videos for the content well enough with play pause, fastforward but the biggest barrier I am facing is that the mountains which you tap on in the for you tab to bring up the settings are unlabeled. I was trying to turn off the babbling Brook sound, accessible apps need to have text labels to accompany any clickable items. I would love to resubscribe once you have resolved these issues, buttons for the mood check-in feature are also unlabeled or nonexistent. The box breathing technique does not speak anything aloud or refresh on its own. A better way to accomplish that might be to use a metronome with 44 times signature. I am happy to speak to a developer more about my feedback and suggestions for how to resolve these issues, but I think that especially since healthcare providers are starting to recommend your service to their users, many of them who use Medicaid and Medicare and are disabled the app absolutely should be more accessible. Thank you for your timely consideration and namaste. I look forward to working with you in making the meditation community more inclusive.

    Was a great app until our account disappeared. Paid for a lifetime membership and now they tell us we have no account. Husband sent proof of purchase and they do not respond. Customer service is disappointingly slow. It's been a week. Please don't give a generic response to this review. Do your job and fix our account. Why is there no phone number? Sometimes email is not sufficient.

I use it to sleep better, but when I stop it and close the app, 3hrs later when I hook up my phone to a work Bluetooth device, IT'S STILL PLAYING! FIX IT or 1 star is coming, for the extreme price of the app, things like this should NOT be happening IMO

  • 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.
  • Love This App! Jan 20, 2019

    By Gabbyellen
    I am a lifelong insomniac. I spend most nights staring at the ceiling for an hour or more before I fall asleep if I do at all. This app has helped so much in getting myself into "sleep mode" and calming down & stopping my brain from rewinding the day or cycling through the next day's schedule. I occasionally listen to music but I mostly stick to the readings. My only request is to get Matthew McConaughey to do more readings! I have tried listening to others and they just don't work. I'd say my biggest complaint is they are all reading as though they are reading to an audience that's awake and aware. They are either too loud (even on the lowest setting) or reading with too much inflection which excites one rather than lulling one to sleep. MM knew his audience and his reading is in a very soft tone, his voice is calming and relaxing and he also seems to lower his voice as the story goes on, barely above a whisper by the end. All in all his is the perfect presentation and the only one I can fall asleep to! So please keep this story in rotation and if you can convince him to do more, please do! Otherwise I am content listening to the same story night after night.

    This morning I woke at 4am in an unfamiliar state of presence and ‘calm’. I drank water, started reading The Power Of Now (Eckhart Tolle), and after the introduction simply knew in that presence that I wanted to say hello to me, to consciousness, to the now. I put down the book and played Day 2 - How to Meditate on this app I had just downloaded yesterday. I am now finding my Homebase, through the calming inspiration narrated by Jeff Warren, and when I opened my eyes I was filled with such peace in this moment (now 5am) that tears welled up. I embraced this expression of my self and felt pure joy. This moment demanded a review of this app that I am grateful to invest in after my 7 day trial. Everything else I enjoy about the logistics, user-friendly UI, and clean beauty of the app itself are all cherries on top of what I gained internally after only two days of meditating...breathing...feeling. Thank you, developers. I am humbly grateful for your inspirations. On that note, my one request would be to incorporate the ability to Bluetooth or google cast the sessions and what not. I’d love to play it through my tv when resting in bed or Bluetooth speaker when sitting by the pool! 🥰
  • 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.
  • Great but needs more voices Dec 3, 2020

    By nmbr1sk8r
    I love this app and use it all the time. Loads of new content added constantly. The length of the meditations is perfect. I love the series like 7 days of calm, 7 days of sleep, etc. the breathing exercises are so helpful. One area for improvement would be that currently most of the meditations, especially new content, is narrated by the same woman. It would be really helpful if these same sessions were recorded with a male voice, so listeners could have an option. It would also be helpful if there were a more diverse selection of voices throughout the meditations. (This is done in the master classes and sleep stories, but I’d like to see it in the meditations too). A second area would be a review of the content of the gratitude meditations, which make assumptions and are therefore injurious for some listeners. For example I am in the middle of fighting a long term disease. Suggestions like you should be grateful for your health are not helpful and actually harmful for me. I’d really like to cultivate more gratitude but I can’t get through any of these meditations without being triggered. A review by someone working with diverse populations could help this. Other than this, I love the app. It has been designed so well and my mental health has improved dramatically since starting to use it. Highly recommended!
  • 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.
  • My opinion about the calm app. Mar 24, 2021

    By nehdhdhennej
    Dear-Publisher,I have had this app for year and I love it so much, it helps me a lot but I deleted the app and downloaded it back and I’m glad I did. I know you may not have the some opinion as me but I think this app is outstanding. If the creator or person that published this app sees this, I just wanna tell how thankful I am that you made this all because it helps a lot. I know that some of the stories cost money but it’s still worth downloading the app. I recommend listening to “sleep paws” and “the secret lagoon” they are both amazing bedtime stories for all ages! There is no age policy for this app if you ask me I just think that there is only one thing that could make the app better which is making the stories a lower price or just making it cost 0 dollars itself because some of the stories look very interesting but I cannot read them because I have to do a trial and that’s the reason why umm giving this app 4 starts! So if the person who published this app sees this review I just wanna say thanks for making my life so much more easier but please Mack some of the stories more reasonable of price because I have read all of the stories which are the ones that don’t cost money.

It really help if u looking for relaxing and sleeping and avoiding anxieties and over thinking I'll give it 4 stars until I see another sleep srories Thank you for making this beautiful app Literally I can't sleep at night without listening to sleep stories feeling like I'm 4 years old Lol.

    Honestly want to love this app because the interface does as described and gives a sense of "calm" but it just really misses the mark. The meditations are around 10 minutes long, but more than half of the time is dead air. This isn't guided meditation, it's dead air breathing exercises. If you cut down all the gaps, this would easily be 5-star. Great ambient noise.

    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.

    It's just ok. There are so many things to choose from that I stayed awake just trying to pick something to listen to. I really dislike that all of the daily meditations are the same lady - her voice grates on my nerves. Some of the sleep stories are really educational so they kept me awake 🙄 I don't know, it just doesn't do it for me. I'm super annoyed that I was forced to pay so much for a year subscription with no monthly option. I'm uninstalling.
  • 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.

    Love the content on Calm, but the glitches, pauses and crashes are irritating. Following every single session in the past year I've received a "congrats on your 12th session" screen. Please make them stop.

    By Tiffany Roetken
    My main gripe about this app is that your can't create playlists so that you can listen to multiple stories, classes, meditations, etc, one after the other. If I'm having trouble sleeping, which is when I use this app, I have to constantly open my phone and X out the "Still Awake" screen. Yes, still awake and having to stay awake to find something else to listen to! Also, if you don't like Tamara Levitt, good luck. She is the most featured creator.
  • App is in accessible for blind user, buttons unlabeled Apr 29, 2021

    By Apelli0727
    Hello, I really like the content on your app and it has really helped me to develop my practice. However because of the issues described in the title I probably will no longer subscribe to calm next year. I am blind, and use the screen reader voiceover. I can play the videos for the content well enough with play pause, fastforward but the biggest barrier I am facing is that the mountains which you tap on in the for you tab to bring up the settings are unlabeled. I was trying to turn off the babbling Brook sound, accessible apps need to have text labels to accompany any clickable items. I would love to resubscribe once you have resolved these issues, buttons for the mood check-in feature are also unlabeled or nonexistent. The box breathing technique does not speak anything aloud or refresh on its own. A better way to accomplish that might be to use a metronome with 44 times signature. I am happy to speak to a developer more about my feedback and suggestions for how to resolve these issues, but I think that especially since healthcare providers are starting to recommend your service to their users, many of them who use Medicaid and Medicare and are disabled the app absolutely should be more accessible. Thank you for your timely consideration and namaste. I look forward to working with you in making the meditation community more inclusive.

    Like the app, but getting REALLY TIRED of it ALWAYS playing on my phone. I use it to sleep better, but when I stop it and close the app, 3hrs later when I hook up my phone to a work Bluetooth device, IT'S STILL PLAYING! FIX IT or 1 star is coming, for the extreme price of the app, things like this should NOT be happening IMO

    Was good for over a year. Theu haven't added a new story except for kid stories in almost a month. You can only listen to a story so many times.. l canceled my subscription this month and don't see subscribing again.

    By Duck Phoenix
    Its 76 dollars including tax for a subscription, otherwise only a very VERY small amount of content available and good luck finding it. Fcuking outrageous price for an app and its not even a one time payment.
  • Not great for the chronically ill Nov 10, 2020

    By straea
    I downloaded this app when Apple recommended it. I have tried several guided meditation apps and am always open to the possibility of finding another one to add to my options for meditating alone. I could not open the app the first time without agreeing to be charged a subscription at the end of a one-week free trial. The app then asked me a few questions to try to determine what to recommend — how familiar I am with meditation, how often I meditate, and what I’d like to focus on in guided meditation. It then recommended I try a one-week course on stress. I figured I would give it a try, but I did not make it 60 seconds into the very first lesson before the person leading the meditation falsely claimed that a variety of physical chronic illnesses are *caused by* stress, the same utter garbage that some people claimed to me way back when I was diagnosed over 20 years ago. I immediately stopped the course but decided to try something else before giving up on the app. I tried a few of the daily meditations, but like another recent reviewer, I found the style of the person who always leads them doesn’t really mesh with my style. Then I had an anxiety attack and only later realized that I had forgotten this app was on my phone when doing things to calm myself. At that point I finally deleted it.

    I downloaded this app because it said it was free and it looked like something I could use to help with my anxiety disorder and insomnia. No it is free 7 day trial then 69.99 for a year. Saw that was the price for premium so thought maybe it is like a lot of apps a few things free and better things under the premium. Nope EVERYTHING IS LOCKED unless you PAY for it. That is not free. I have no issue with the cost, but with the bait and switch you pull. Not even going to try it now.

    I love the sleep stories. But the app itself has gotten progressively worse over the two years I have been using it. It is slow and clunky and the user interface has gotten cluttered and cumbersome. I repeatedly report my unhappiness with the "improvements" but nothing changes. I ask for the ability to customize - nope. The latest update has pretty much rendered it unusable on my tablet. It tries to open and just shuts right back down. This is definitely not calming. Edit: Still not fixed

    I paid a lot for this app and it's performance is pretty disappointing. It no longer plays meditations after my phone screen goes to sleep. Sessions always cut off about a third of the way through. Would love to get a refund and try switching to Headspace. Hard to calm down and clear my mind when I'm constantly frustrated with this app.

    By Dayton Livingston
    The fact that I have to sign up AS A SUBSCRIPTION before even sampling the app completely put me off. If you want me to buy something, I have to know what I'm buying. And I know how it works - a certain number of people will sign up, then forget and the auto-payments will continue, giving you guys free money. Far as I'm concerned, THAT'S A SCAM.

    Calm does not turn off if you disconnect headphones. This presents an issue if you're using BT headphones and are listening to Soundscapes, which play perpetually, and will waste your phone's battery. Basically, it doesn't behave like every other app that plays audio behaves. The offerings themselves are nice but the UI is very clunky. For example in the Meditation tab, you have to scroll all the way to the right just to see offerings from guest instructors.

    Was a great app until our account disappeared. Paid for a lifetime membership and now they tell us we have no account. Husband sent proof of purchase and they do not respond. Customer service is disappointingly slow. It's been a week. Please don't give a generic response to this review. Do your job and fix our account. Why is there no phone number? Sometimes email is not sufficient.

    Why has this changed so much? I've had the app for a long while and haven't used it for some time, clearly. I used to be able to listen to the sound of the rain FOR FREE... and now I have to PAY for a YEAR to be able to? No thank you....
