    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.

  • Great app, use it every night Oct 4, 2021

    By Ak hockey907
    I love the Calm app! I stumbled upon a television commercial about it a few years ago and decided to give it a try. I have had trouble falling asleep for years, and was honestly skeptical that an app would put me to sleep. Boy was I wrong! I love the different options - sleep stories, music, meditation - each one is interesting, and while I can’t say I’ve managed to get to end of a story…well that’s the point. I’m out within five minutes. I’ve read some reviews about the expense - here’s the thing - what is your sleep and a relaxed mindset worth to you? Divide that annual cost by 365 and you’re paying a pittance for your health. Check back around the holidays - the makers of Calm run specials sometimes that make it even more worthwhile. I had just renewed my annual fee two summers ago, when an end of year special came around. It was a lifetime subscription that was going to save hundreds of dollars over the years. I knew I wouldn’t get the remainder of my annual fee (8 months left) refunded if I jumped on the lifetime subscription, but it was still worth the jump. This is a must have app. *App makers - please put the sleep check-in back! With the latest update it is gone, and it was something that really helped understanding factors that affect sleep.
  • 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.

    I love this app and it's been incredibly helpful on my journey, but I have a few pet peeves: I feel like it's not always well organized and it would be helpful if the check in better tracked when I did them so it doesn't ask me 2 do one before & after something, even if I only clicked on it to read what it was about. I'd also like to be able to do playlists cuz I could do something like fall asleep to a story, then meditation, & have it go on to play my favorite sounds cape throughout the night.
  • 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!

    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.

    I like the segments themselves, but the technical quality is disappointing. The sessions do not transmit smoothly, and have lots of voids where there is no sound (for example the background sound drops out for a second then come back). This hinders the segments from having the desired effect of calming you, and instead makes it distracting. The developers of the app need to improve this.
  • Great App-Needs a few little tweaks Mar 22, 2022

    By JoyfulBookDragon
    Calm has great stories, meditations and more. I love it and have the full version. I love Anna Acton, Eric Braa, and other soothing voices. Some of them, however, are just a bit...jarring. I know everyone has different tastes but I like to listen to voices directing me during meditation or towards sleep that don’t jump out at me. Please, Calm, add more voices like Eduardo Ballerini, Ramon Tikaram, Chiké Okonkwo, May Charters and Jerome Flynn. Cillian Murphy is a great guest sleep story teller but please don’t just use celebrities because of name value. They don’t all make good storytellers/meditation guides. Some write the stories and I am grateful to those who come up with such wonderful sleep stories for adults. The ones that travel back in time, especially aboard old trains are outstanding! Just curate the voices a little better because some of us are too sensitive to the nuances of voice to listen to many of the meditations/stories. That’s kind of a waste. I end up listening to the same ones over and over. Please make the sleep stories at least 35 minutes, too. For those of us who need longer to drift away. Finally, since you are now making playlists, how about one that is just long train stories? Thanks so much!
  • The best way to calm anxiety Mar 2, 2022

    By Cudnakshiesnjxixisjjeuduufu
    I’m a 19 y/o college student that suffers from an anxiety disorder. I feel anxious most of the time and when things to actually feel anxious about present themselves it can be absolutely debilitating for me physically and emotionally. However calm allows me to find hope in my current predicaments, and is amazing at calming me down. I really enjoy the soundscapes and meditation but my favorite thing is definitely the sleep story’s. Listening to a bedtime story made for little kids mostly is really strangely therapeutic. There are more adult options but give the kiddy one’s a try. I feel like I’m one of the last demographics that these sleep story’s would reach but they make me feel more secure and able to connect back to the security of childhood. But anyways I highly recommend this app, the subscription is a bit pricey but the quality isn’t matched anywhere else. Falling asleep, calming down, feeling secure, and gaining more confidence & hope have all been easy and peaceful to do with this app. I’ve been falling asleep with my headphones on every night so I can listen to this without disturbing my roommate. But I feel like he would enjoy it too. After just the first day of the free trial I’m hooked.

    The app itself is very nice. My aunt bought me a Calm puzzle that included a free month subscription, and it has lots of different things to listen to. I love listening to rain soundscapes when it's raining. But, the biggest downside is the ridiculous paywall. It's 60 dollars for this paywall to disappear (I can't remember if it's monthly or yearly) and if you have the free version, you can't access anything at all.
  • May 17, 2022

    By Walt Tramontana
    I just wanted to start by using the app to journal how I felt daily with the check-in option. But then after a few weeks I noted some specific emotions, like frustration didn't exist. The options are very limited. Journaling is about expression and intended to be something just for yourself, so the limitation and inability to freehand type one is unacceptable.
  • May 19, 2022

    By Harmony F
    This app is terrible, for starters the "free" version has nothing, and I mean actually nothing. You can't access any of the sleep stories or meditations unless you pay, and it's $70?? That's a little too expensive for an app like this, especially when there are other apps that work much better for free or cheap. I will say however some of the sleep stories are nice but overall not impressed 😔

    What's not calm is how glitchy this app is. Almost nothing loads when you click it. Most of the content is "not available at this time". And man do they really really really want you to try the new sleep playlists. No matter what you do, it keeps popping up asking you try it. And guess what, when you click on it, nothing happens... Except more pop-ups. The app is a mess.
  • 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.

    Well first off I use to love this app. I used everytime I traveled to help me sleep better. I loved the free soundscapes to relax or to drift off to sleep. Now though there is no free content at all on the app they only offer a 7 day trial then want you to pay 69.99 a year to use the app... I get it you gotta make money but there plenty of ads already on the app to provide some free content. Just disappointed after years using it for free now it is pay or you have no access.
  • Mar 29, 2022

    By Justin Harner
    Very, very little content for free. And the little bit that is available is only intros to multi-part selections. So although there seemed to be a lot of content, I didn't even bother looking at it because I had to sort through so many "lock" icons overlapping everything you can pick. If you have money to spend, but 1 star for me, horrible first impression.
  • Mar 18, 2022

    By Beth Brightman
    Misleading!!! "Calm is free to download and use. There are never any ads and some of the programs and features are free forever. Some content is only available through an optional paid subscription" This is a lie! I downloaded and everything is locked. There is not a free item to use at all! If your items are only free to use during a trial period then just say so up front. Honestly is appreciated by people. This should have said try it free for 7 days then continue with a subscription.

    Would be great if it didn't freeze every 3-10 minutes. (Paid version!) I've attempted to reach customer service, they just say to un-install and re-install. Tried that a few times and it still stops playing incessantly. Each time it does you have to reenter the app and reselect what you are trying to listen to.
  • Mar 26, 2022

    By Laura Kenney
    I was using Headspace, but the app kept crashing, so my therapist suggested this app as a better solution. Wrong wrong wrong. Everything is locked unless you want to pay $70 to get any content. I don't mind monthly fees, but I don't like the idea of paying for a full year without being able to sample!
  • May 17, 2022

    By Lorelei
    Uninstalled, too much data and no way to prevent it from billing at the end of the trial. I had to email customer service which took them a week to confirm I wouldn't be billed and delete my information. For an app that's supposed to help someone relax that's more work added to my day. I can't find my previous review in order to edit it, seems like they deleted it.

  • 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)
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Review of Calm Oct 13, 2021

    By SweetnessandLight
    I really am indebted to Calm for working in my life during this pandemic helping me w my emotions, sleep help and maybe keeping me at a level arresting the memory decline that seemed to be coming on w it’s debilitating force. (I don’t use words like fighting it because most things should not be put into adversarial roles) I wish I had more from our guide Jeff on how to meditate. I really relate to his presentation because he seems quintessentially California to me. I’ve been meditating since I was 6 or so, brought up Vedantist Hindu, born Jewish and am now a ChristianI am an aging hippie. I meditate w my cat on my lap, I simply press my hands on her sides and she grounds me and then is the anchor; her occasionally purring. I love the pictures and the nature scenes. By the way I have been meditating every single day since November. If I might be of assistance, I’m not sure how maybe I could do a Spark or something. I wish there were Something way to dialog - I have been on the site. Maybe I could look more deeply into community of Calm. Thanks for saving my life as a process. This is one place I like to be every single day (sometimes night) contact me if you are interested in my story of success.

They have categories to choose from; 'fall asleep', 'anxiety', 'stress relief', 'focus', 'inspiration', 'breathing', etc. I like to play the music while working on creative project and it helps. I also instantly fell asleep while listening to one of the 'fall asleep' songs. One thing is, I couldn't find the videos they use for advertising.
  • Hooked on Day 2... Jun 9, 2020

    By Mr.BLT
    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.

    I love this app and it's been incredibly helpful on my journey, but I have a few pet peeves: I feel like it's not always well organized and it would be helpful if the check in better tracked when I did them so it doesn't ask me 2 do one before & after something, even if I only clicked on it to read what it was about. I'd also like to be able to do playlists cuz I could do something like fall asleep to a story, then meditation, & have it go on to play my favorite sounds cape throughout the night.
  • 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!

    First, I want to say I really like this app. But there are a few features that would be good to add to the app to improve the flow.The scenes themselves are great but it would be nice to be able to sort the ones you have downloaded and make some sort of filtering for the scenes like water, forest etc. In the profile area, being able to clear the recently played list would be nice also being able to make your own playlists with ones you have downloaded and one you haven't or something like that.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    By Andrea Johnson
    Great app with an odd bug. When using the app to track my sleep, my entries get assigned to the wrong date. The calendar indicates today's date (3/31) correctly, but when I logged how well I slept last night, it shows up as two days ago (3/29)! A minor thing, maybe, but it's super confusing.
  • Pretty cool app Apr 13, 2020

    By Mr brake your back
    This app was created to help people who are struggling with anxiety, daily stress, sleeping problems, or even depression. The app has many different resources and techniques given to help people. It has breathing exercises which can help people who are dealing with anxiety or stress. These breathing techniques are proven effective by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques. The app has calming music to listen to while doing work or to help fall asleep. For someone who is struggling with depression the app gives many tips with the focus on mental health. These tips are how to maintain a strong mental health. I downloaded this app since I saw a lot of advertising for it. My first impressions of the app were just okay. Once I figured out how to navigate around the app and use all of the features I began to enjoy it more and more. One of my favorite features about the app is the stories to help you fall asleep. One of the parts of the app that I did not like very much is that you have to pay to get a majority of the features. Although they do have a free 7 day subscription, I feel that you need to use it longer to get a good effect from the app. Overall I think that app is pretty cool and interesting.
  • Should not claim to support Family Share Jun 2, 2020

    By bbrockit
    Like many expensive subscription apps Calm claims to support Apple Family share. However, In-app purchases and subscriptions cannot be shared, so no, your purchase of Calm cannot be shared. Only the free portion (accessible for 1 week) can be shared—which is of course unnecessary since family members don’t need family share for something that is already free. Family members would actually be better off downloading it directly because the free access only lasts one week so they’d at least get their own trial period instead of whatever remains of a family member’s. There is fine print in the App Store which says that Family Share does not support in-app purchases and subscriptions, but nothing in the app itself will tell you that your $70 one year subscription cannot be shared with a family member or significant other. It would be simpler and more honest if Calm would opt-out of Family Share so it would not display that capability on their App Store description as Family Share is only relevant and useful for one-time paid apps. You have a very nice app otherwise.
  • Love this app but has significant shortfall Dec 4, 2020

    By Yirah02
    Everything about this app is excellent. I used to dread laying in bed, trying to calm my mind for sleep, but now with the calm app I look forward to my sleep story and soundscape every night. However for the way I use calm there is one major shortfall in the app. There is no way to line up a queue or playlist of recordings. I will make it to the end of a sleep story, be close to sleep but not quite there and then have to search through the app again to turn on my soundscape. I know this doesn’t sound like a big deal but for me who has always had trouble falling asleep it is very disruptive. It is also disruptive when I use the app to help my 10 yr old son fall asleep- I put on a sleep meditation for him, but he always wants a sleep story to follow. I either have to stay in his room through the whole meditation so I can start the sleep story, or he has to climb down from his bunk bed to do it, disrupting the calm we just established with the meditation. This app is so thoughtful in so many ways I am surprised and disappointed they have not found a solution for this yet.
  • Pls read Jun 24, 2020

    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.
  • Apr 28, 2022

    By Gregory Dash
    I like the segments themselves, but the technical quality is disappointing. The sessions do not transmit smoothly, and have lots of voids where there is no sound (for example the background sound drops out for a second then come back). This hinders the segments from having the desired effect of calming you, and instead makes it distracting. The developers of the app need to improve this.
  • Apr 29, 2022

    By Kayleigh McNeill
    The app itself is very nice. My aunt bought me a Calm puzzle that included a free month subscription, and it has lots of different things to listen to. I love listening to rain soundscapes when it's raining. But, the biggest downside is the ridiculous paywall. It's 60 dollars for this paywall to disappear (I can't remember if it's monthly or yearly) and if you have the free version, you can't access anything at all.
  • I like it but………. Jan 19, 2022

    By mikethehousekey123
    Ok so to start off I like it but I can barely even use anything. I was trying to do the 7 day sleep meditation but I can only do the first day and I had to repeat the first day over and over and over. All because I didn’t have the premium and the premium is $70 a year. I didn’t want to get it because that would waste my money but everything is locked for premium. So here is what I am thinking that you should do I think you should make it 50/50. Like 50% of the stuff that is locked for the premium and make it not premium so it can be fair to those who don’t have the premium and to those who have it. Now let’s talk about the price we should make it reasonable enough to get and instead of $70 let’s make it 35 dollars so it can be fair and people would be happy if they had the premium or not because they get a reasonable price and they get to use many of the meditations if they have it and if they don’t. Sorry if this was confusing but I want it to be fair because the price and the amount of meditations that you can use without the premium wasn’t fair so I wanted to make it reasonable and fair. So now I want to hear what you have to say because there are many other people that might agree with me but I am wondering if you do too
  • 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.
  • Doesn’t work as well as it should for the money Dec 30, 2021

    By Kimmi624
    I paid $70 for this thing, and the sleep feature does not work correctly for me at all! I set it for three hours usually, because I like the noise to continue until I know for sure that I have fallen asleep. It never fails that once it stops, it jars me out of sleep, assuming I have fallen asleep quickly enough. Unfortunately that’s exactly what keeps happening to me. I use this app on my iPad, and usually after the first song, if I am listening to sleep music, it completely stops playing, and then I get a message telling me that my timer ran out. Even though the timer underneath clearly shows that I have close to three hours still left on it. This literally happens almost every night so I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t even try to fall asleep until at least two songs have played. I like the app otherwise, but it’s absolutely ridiculous that I have to do that after having spent so much money on this thing!! I like the sleep stories as well, but I wish there was some way to set them on repeat because I don’t always fall asleep quickly enough and I wouldn’t mind having them play multiple times.
  • The app is wonderful, but lacks variety. Sep 8, 2020

    By AJayneDyer
    I got a year of premium on this app and absolutely adore it. The depth, care, and detail that went into making this app the best of its kind are not at all lost on me. It’s been very helpful to me with managing sleep and anxiety, really to life-changing levels. But I find my biggest complaint and the thing that makes me go through bouts in which I stop using it altogether is the lack of variety in narrators. Tamara Levitt is used to narrate a very large number of exercises and while her voice is positive and upbeat—she really is lovely, I’m sure!—it’s not AT ALL relaxing and totally grinds on my nerves. I literally cannot listen to any audio that she does in this app and as I said, there are many. It’s really disappointing. I’ve found the male narrators, specifically Elisha Goldstein, have a slower cadence and a much more relaxing tone that allows me to decompress and stop my anxiety attacks or drift off to sleep. But repetitive listening of certain audios can lead me to memorize it, which I find has me anticipating the words rather than absorbing them. I would really appreciate more frequent updates to the “cast” in these audios, especially ones for sleep and anxiety management.
  • Great, but limited content, needs more Nov 25, 2018

    By bioeric
    This app has really changed how well I sleep. And for that I am truly grateful to the developers. They definitely deserve all the accolades the app has been receiving. I do have one major criticism thought that I wish I could get them to pay attention to at this time. They apps content is very limited in comparison to other similar apps. The major area of limitation is the sleep stories section. There are only a handful of sleep stories that can not even get you through a month of nights without having to listen to the same stories over and over again. Many users I know are focusing in on the sleep stories section because they work. However, all have the same complaint as I do; just not enough stories and having to listen to the same stories over and over again. Hey for little kids, this particular flaw is fine. Heck, I have read the Fantastic Mr. Fox to my youngest literally over a 100 times to get him to sleep. For us adults, the developers of calm need to realize we need more variety in our sleep stories. If this app only had more, I would be elated to change my rating to 5 out of 5 stars without a days hesitation.
  • So disappointed lately Apr 2, 2021

    By tanglepuffs
    This app was fabulous originally, but they have “improved” some functions so they are not easy to use any more. For example, we listen to the same Eric Braa episodes every night, but now they have moved them out of the instant display of my faves and buried them so I have to search for them in the middle of the night. They no longer have new Eric Braa episodes and his voice is so soothing. The recently used episodes should appear near the top of the category list so we can find them easily, not on the home page! Give us a way to make our own category(s). Give us a way to remove all the children’s stories from the adult content. Give us a way to totally delete content that is a trigger for us. And finally, in the middle of the night, a dialog sometimes pops up that I have to put my glasses on to read so I can dismiss it! That should NEVER happen. I wish someone would listen. I used to give feedback on each new story, but it never did any good so I stopped. I don’t feel they listen anymore and I’m disappointed.
  • Pretty awesome Oct 26, 2020

    By TetonRyder
    I am an insomniac and pay for this app to help me fall back asleep when I wake up in the night. I have found about A dozen stories on here that really work well for that. Those are the only ones which have soothing and not annoying voices, enjoyable content, and are written for adults.I wish there were more like this but this many are truly awesome and help me fall asleep when I wouldn’t have a chance without it. The other drawback to the app is that when your story ends you can’t just play it again without activating your brain much because it is always suggesting other stories or asking you to check in, it would be a lot better if it would just stay on the screen you’d chosen and all you would have to do is press play. Also I work in the wilderness during the summer so there’s no service at all. Sometimes I’m able to play the stories I have downloaded, but other times for some reason they all vanish from my liked page and some or all of them will not be playable from the all page either.

    What's not calm is how glitchy this app is. Almost nothing loads when you click it. Most of the content is "not available at this time". And man do they really really really want you to try the new sleep playlists. No matter what you do, it keeps popping up asking you try it. And guess what, when you click on it, nothing happens... Except more pop-ups. The app is a mess.
  • 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.

    Would be great if it didn't freeze every 3-10 minutes. (Paid version!) I've attempted to reach customer service, they just say to un-install and re-install. Tried that a few times and it still stops playing incessantly. Each time it does you have to reenter the app and reselect what you are trying to listen to.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Latest layout just has so many design and access flaws Apr 10, 2022

    By Samantha Twotwins
    This was such a wonderful app, At some point, a year ago? they redesigned the layout and made it stressful to use. It was so simple before, you wanted a sleep story? You could scroll through every one simply and fluidly. now they are all separated, train stories from nature from featured or whatsoever and you have to spend your time searching through multiple tabs, that shudder as you scroll, not fluid anymore, the last thing you want to do when you’re looking to get to sleep. And though on each there’s a See All tab, you only see all of that category - making it really difficult to just access all sleep stories. And these sleep categories are all buried among daytime use tabs, meditations, daily get up and go stuff, mental fitness. Who thought this was a good idea?? The layout design is too specified and difficult to just go and find what you want. Also, while I’m glad there is more kid content being added for parents it would be nice if they added other stories at the same pace, and also backed off some of the more cheesy approaches to new stories that seems to have begin to pervade. Bummer when a great thing is “improved” and made far less nice.
  • Great app but lots of $ Jan 1, 2020

    By penguino🐧567986543
    I love the app! But that’s a lot of money. I think there should be an app that thinks about the people using it more, because some people can’t afford this including me. I’m trying to look for a app that helps with my anxiety and this app is great but I don’t have the money to get what I need on this app. This seems like a little much to charge $70. This helps people’s stress, anxiety, depression, and more. There are a ton of options you can use which is great if you have $70. You should have more free things and give more price options. Like you could have a certain amount of money for a week or a month or even even a few months, not just charge to only get it for a year. And you could lower the price for a year even if it’s just by a few $. This might attract more people to the app and you would make more money. You would probably get better ratings too. If you have the $ to spend on this app spend it! It’s not going to be a waste of your $. This has sleep stories for people of all ages including kids, it has all different kinds of sounds, it has meditation, and it has breathing exercises. GET THIS APP if you have the money to spend for it. It won’t let you down.
  • Too many locked things Dec 30, 2019

    By 🌺🐘Elephants4Ever🐘🌺
    Today I found myself in a EXTREMELY stressful situation and I needed to be calmed down. I decided to download this app because I couldn’t take it anymore. I read the reviews and a lot of people were complaining about the locked features. I thought it couldn’t be that bad. I was wrong. Almost everything helpful is locked. I found myself not only stressing out about the situation I’m going through but this app. Now I know it’s not a lot of money but even if it’s like a couple cents a month, I stress about it. I’m not poor or anything it’s just that I have a lot of anxiety. I mean a lot. This isn’t a very helpful app if almost everything helpful is locked. All the music is locked which would help me the most. Very disappointing but I gave it an extra star because if we had some helpful things, it would be an amazing app. I saw a response to a review like mine saying that they make it so expensive so they can keep building the app. Omg these people who made this aren’t very smart. Have you seen all the 5 stars? If you make it cheaper, there will be more people buying the app and then the reviews won’t be as bad and you’ll have even more money. $70 is just outrageous.
  • Ironic Sep 30, 2021

    By TheWillLawrence
    I just wanted to explore the app but immediate I was faced with signing up(here comes the spam marketing emails), and choosing a pricy subscription(is it worthy it….. I’d not know I haven’t seen anything yet). Then you find the way out of the subscription screen and Bamm they hit you with another one… a bit cheaper though. After that finally I got to the app. Almost everything is locked. But I tried clicking anyways right cause that’s why I’m here. Bammm they hit you with the subscription page because you need to pay to view that content. … Okay I’ll got back and look for something free so that I can see this app in use. ….Scrolling scrolling scrolling almost nothing is unlocked. And them Bammm…. Pop up…They want a app review…. I just got here, I can’t review yet. All that to say I gave up at that point and I still dont know if it’s good app. Maybe. But it was a stressful experience getting almost nowhere. And then hours later after I’ve given up and deleted the app and moved on… Bammm… email comes in from Calm offering a discounted subscription. Ironically the most stressful thing in my day was this Calm app.
  • May 17, 2022

    I just wanted to start by using the app to journal how I felt daily with the check-in option. But then after a few weeks I noted some specific emotions, like frustration didn't exist. The options are very limited. Journaling is about expression and intended to be something just for yourself, so the limitation and inability to freehand type one is unacceptable.

    This app is terrible, for starters the "free" version has nothing, and I mean actually nothing. You can't access any of the sleep stories or meditations unless you pay, and it's $70?? That's a little too expensive for an app like this, especially when there are other apps that work much better for free or cheap. I will say however some of the sleep stories are nice but overall not impressed 😔

    Well first off I use to love this app. I used everytime I traveled to help me sleep better. I loved the free soundscapes to relax or to drift off to sleep. Now though there is no free content at all on the app they only offer a 7 day trial then want you to pay 69.99 a year to use the app... I get it you gotta make money but there plenty of ads already on the app to provide some free content. Just disappointed after years using it for free now it is pay or you have no access.

    Very, very little content for free. And the little bit that is available is only intros to multi-part selections. So although there seemed to be a lot of content, I didn't even bother looking at it because I had to sort through so many "lock" icons overlapping everything you can pick. If you have money to spend, but 1 star for me, horrible first impression.

    Misleading!!! "Calm is free to download and use. There are never any ads and some of the programs and features are free forever. Some content is only available through an optional paid subscription" This is a lie! I downloaded and everything is locked. There is not a free item to use at all! If your items are only free to use during a trial period then just say so up front. Honestly is appreciated by people. This should have said try it free for 7 days then continue with a subscription.

    I was using Headspace, but the app kept crashing, so my therapist suggested this app as a better solution. Wrong wrong wrong. Everything is locked unless you want to pay $70 to get any content. I don't mind monthly fees, but I don't like the idea of paying for a full year without being able to sample!

    Uninstalled, too much data and no way to prevent it from billing at the end of the trial. I had to email customer service which took them a week to confirm I wouldn't be billed and delete my information. For an app that's supposed to help someone relax that's more work added to my day. I can't find my previous review in order to edit it, seems like they deleted it.

    There is no one ambient sound, relaxation music, anything at all that is not for a 7-day trial period and then a charge. It is deceitful that the app will be free and then one has to pay for everything it provides. Do not download of you're hoping to find any help to your problem for free. Every app like this should have a sentence key: "per subscription" right under its name, so people not interested in it will not waste time downloading and deleting the app.

    I thought I would get more for free. 90% of everything is "locked" unless you pay for annual subscription. If you gave more for free, I might be inclined to pay for a subscription after I sampled the free stuff. On such a "calm" app, it's very stressful that I'm pushed from all direction to pay!! Shame, shame, shame. Obviously it's all about the $$$.

    If I could leave 0 * I would!! I downloaded this app to try it out, didn’t even end up using it during the 3 free day trial I was given. Tried deleting it and canceling so I wouldn’t be charged the $70 and it would t allow me to. I have tried canceling with no progress, I’ve also tried to get ahold of the app developer and Apple as well to cancel the charge beforehand and no luck. Now I got charged from my bank and also a $30 charge because their wasn’t enough to cover from the account I have set up for t Apple account. I am now trying to figure out how to cancel and delete the app I i won’t be charged next year, because it says my trial is good til November 12, 2020 and I didn’t want it this time much less next year so now I’m trapped. This is the last thing I thought I could do, maybe the calm app will see this review and answer me back! I am not happy!!! And now I have been charged $70 for an app I do NOT want or need and not to mention the $30 over draft fee from my bank. 😡😡😤🤬 I do NOT want this app and DO NOT want to be charged again in a year. The only thing it seems to allow me to do is change the trial to a lesser anoint or an extra amount for next years after the November 12th trial is over but would not and still will not let me cancel or edit anything. PLEASE HELP ME FIX THIS MESS!! —signed an UNHAPPY customer 😡
