Really good app a lot o good stuff for free I love it
Peace and therapy
by Theresaab on 2019/11/13 13:22
I love this app. I worked with the free version for several months and found it so helpful to my state of mind. I upgraded to the paid version and there are so many beautifully designed and wonderfully deep sessions. Whatever you want to improve or whatever is bothering you, it is like having a kind and caring friend talk you through it. I’m so happy to have this in my life!
Super relaxing
by TacoBellFoot on 2019/11/12 12:28
Very good so far! :)
Great start to the day
by JCM5766 on 2019/11/12 11:29
Simple Habit has made meditation easy and consistent. So many selections covering every topic and emotion. I highly recommend it
Life saver
by jess8819 on 2019/11/11 18:49
What a great app. I live a very fast paced lifestyle with a demanding job and children who need my best self! This app truly clears your mind to see the importance and purpose of your life.
It is one of the best apps
by Teacher Carlita on 2019/11/09 11:13
I love simple habits. To me is one of my fav apps on meditation, if not the best.
Simple Greatness
by RyKuhn on 2019/11/08 17:42
Meditation and mindfulness everyone can achieve! So good because you can personalize and you don’t have to dedicate tons of time, just a few minutes, to get back in the moment. Stress and mind clutter is a part of most of our days. Simple Habit helps quickly and perfectly exhale it all, in a way that works for you personally.
I love this app!
by hebdmaksbsb on 2019/11/07 12:11
I started using this app a few weeks ago and have been doing morning meditation ever since. This app really has everything to offer. From midnight meditation, to anxiety-calming meditation, this app has got it all, (but not necessarily for free) a lot of the meditation sessions are free, but most of them are not. I also believe that you can only do 1 meditation per day for free, so if that’s an inconvenience for you I might recommend another app, unless you’re willing to pay monthly, to unlock everything. But overall, for free, this app is great!
Great app
by Rick Puskar on 2019/11/06 21:05
Love the app great concept and content. Highly recommend
Best app with worst privacy and ad tracker.
by Mysubscription on 2019/11/06 13:35
This is the one if the best app for meditation but worst for battery and background data theft. App just drain battery and WiFi because they seems to run nasty background data theft and might be selling to someone. What a great app and a shady practices. Apple must audit and investigate their act and data handling of users.
Great app for short or long guided meditation
by oklahomapeppler on 2019/11/05 21:48
So many possibilities, a meditation for really just about anything!
Totally reliable
by NutritionPost on 2019/11/05 18:05
This app delivers! Really delivers. It’s worth the subscription. I don’t review much but this I couldn’t pass on. It makes it easy to find what you need. Each time, it’s a different voice/expert, which makes it more interesting. No fluff, just plain and simple. And helps you. Paying/subscribing gives you more options, and so I don’t mind paying for it.
by HaNnNnNn17362827 on 2019/11/05 03:29
This app is i amazing the only problem is the cost i don’t feel that mediating should cost that much i also i think that you guys should add in auto play so when your in a good position and don’t want to move you have to move to get another video also you should be able to make your own playlist with your favorite ones on it
by Snoozesuze on 2019/11/04 23:54
Signed on not knowing there will be a charge after a free week for $95. Now I need to cancel. Not going to pay. I use insight timer free and it’s great.
Great App!
by #fitt on 2019/11/02 23:06
This is an amazing app! Truly recommend for people who don’t have much time to meditate but still want to!
Many choices
by jonnnnniooooooo on 2019/11/02 15:49
One thing I like about Simple Habit is that there are many choices both of people guiding and focss AS l points.
It works

Lost my favorite meditation but it’s fixed now
by dannyk140 on 2019/10/31 21:50
The recent update took away a lot of features for me but it looks like everything is fixed now. Thanks for fixing it!
Charged $95 before my free promotion was up
by ashjare321 on 2019/10/30 10:55
I downloaded the app during a free month promotion I only had the app for one week and was charged $95 Apple and simple habit denied my request for a refund. I am furious and upset that simple habit does not offer better customer service.
Helping my stress
by Miss. Penguin on 2019/10/30 01:08
This app is helping my stress at home and at school. I really enjoy this app!
Not working
by jamiehop on 2019/10/29 23:16
I love this app, I’ve had it for a few year. It’s no longer opening and I still have paid time..... this is highly disappointing because I’ve had such luck with this mediations. Someone please help!!!
Love! Highly recommend!
by Jennifer Seward on 2019/10/29 17:32
No excuses not to regularly meditate any longer! This has truly transformed my belief in what’s possible for me through meditation. An actor with three other jobs can make prioritizing myself tough at times, but I’m grateful for how simple it feels to fit meditating regularly in there. I have ADHD & anxiety & meditating has helped me focus my scattered brain & literally breathe easier due to my shortness of breath from anxiety. So grateful for this app! If I can do this so can anyone!
Not free
by ASSFACEASS on 2019/10/29 15:59
You need to be an upgraded user to enjoy the full benefits of the app. Otherwise you can get a few free listens.
Love it
by RJones1111 on 2019/10/29 05:40
I love this app so much! But it’s no longer tracking my sessions. It doesn’t have my streak or show that I have done any meditations since the middle of October. I tried to report this issue on the app but couldn’t find where to do that. Please look into this! Once it’s fixed I’ll update my review
Just Right
by Cazoramma on 2019/10/28 17:29
I love the five meditation series. It makes it very obtainable. It also keeps you coming back for more!
Changed my life!!!
by Tess O'Hara on 2019/10/28 02:32
Just five minutes a day helps me with my anxiety, stress and sleep problems!! This is the best app for meditation! I would definitely recommend.
My 2 cents....
by CleverNshaved on 2019/10/27 21:55
The app is fine. But to ballin-on-a-budget? It’s called economic inequality. And it’s exacerbated by tech companies who outsource their labor. When you grow up you might understand. Maybe go to a third world country. But again the app is great.
Letting Go of Getting it Right
by EmmisMimi on 2019/10/27 13:33
I love how Andy guides us into stillness.
Worst meditation app ever
by golfpsyc on 2019/10/26 20:40
Stay away from this app. They are too expensive for similar meditations online.
This has changed my life
by iriluu on 2019/10/26 17:25
It’s rare when I post reviews, but I feel like this is necessary. I’m a 27yo in graduate school, I was also working two jobs, all while trying to combat my anxiety and depression. I had tried meditation in the past, but I did not have all the tools to properly meditate. My psychologist recommended this to me, and now I’m working on doing daily meditation. It has helped me better self-reflect on my levels of patience and kindness while also giving me tools for when I anxious/overthinking. Also, I am generally not into paying for subscriptions, but I feel like I’ve been getting my money’s worth. I truly do recommend it.
by asifshuvo on 2019/10/24 15:25
Very helpful 😍😍😍
Unstable App
by fdyingdrtuij on 2019/10/24 11:20
Not a reliable app: -dropped series in my queue -series won’t refresh and progress to next session -dropped series from my downloads -recommendations will change from minute to minute -I’ve contacted SH Cust Support on latest issues, and they’ve admittedly didn’t/couldn’t solve problem, said they’d get back to me soon. Haven’t heard anything since. LOL... Will be moving to another app in next few weeks
Unreliable system.
by Applelater on 2019/10/23 18:53
Too much trouble with starting up individual programs.
Charged a 2 year and all it dies is crash 😡
by heleneee3 on 2019/10/23 05:24
I loved this app until the second year . I was just charged to renew and now I can’t open the app . It crashes every-time. I used this app to relax and you can’t . I want a refund but cat even contact them through my phone cause the app keeps crashing 😡😡😡
Latest Update Keeps Crashing App
by TayTinWeber on 2019/10/23 03:28
I love this app but the latest update has resulted in the app crashing each time I open the app. I have not been able to use app for several days and I’m a premium subscriber. Please investigate and remediate.
I don’t know what to say...
by totally obsessed in this game on 2019/10/23 01:42
@ballin-on-a-budget, Listen, I see your point. What I don’t see is why exactly must we pay money to be happy? Now I don’t expect you to read this, because I don’t think anyone really comes back to check other reviews after they reviewed the app. Anyway, yes I definitely agree with you. I’m not against you. My point is people shouldn’t exactly have to pay to be happy. Yes, you might have to pay for a yoga or meditation class. That’s all fine and good. The problem is that I don’t see a reason to pay for an app that lends you happiness. I should be able to be happy without having to pay anyone. It is my free right and no one can take it away. Hey developers, if you read this please kindly send this to @ballin-on-a-budget. I’m not looking for a fight. I just want to prove a point. Thank you, and God bless you.
Great Teachings not User Friendly to Manage Favorite Practices
by Italianamericangirl on 2019/10/22 19:10
I would have given a much higher rating but 2 things made/make this app less then great. 1. The ladies voice: I am very thankful that changed! Playing the woman’s voice at the beginning of each meditation saying “Simple Habits a daily vacation....” was so awful! But they changed that, you must be listening to your reviews, that is great! 2. Favorites tab please: I want to favorite the meditations I want to frequent. There is no way of doing this, no way of clearly tracking who you follow and the exact meditation you want to do again. So basically I start over every time I want yo target something I want to reflect on when I already found a meditation I loved. Some of my favorite meditations I can’t find again. This really NEEDS to change or I will need to find another app. I am planning on testing a few others. But I’d stay right here, if this was possible in Simple Habits. They have a great variety of meditation instructors that are very good, hence a 3 and not a 1 or 2.
Thank you
by wendysworkingit on 2019/10/22 13:39
This app has been extremely helpful to me
Only App I’ve Ever Paid For
by ChristinaFitandBalanced on 2019/10/22 12:30
This is the only app I’m ever paid for and it’s been worth the investment. Building a habit of meditation was hard on my own, this all helped me do it! Now I meditate every day twice a day. I’ve tamed my anxiety to almost non existent, I’m more aware of how my mind works, and I’m more in tune with my well-being. Plus, my 9yr old daughter uses it when she has a hard time settling down for sleep. It’s worked wonders for her too! Thanks Simple Habit! Keep doing you!
I love this app!!!
by squirrel67impala on 2019/10/22 06:15
I love this app, it helps me quite a bit with daily life. I really want to get the unlimited, but the only options are yearly or lifetime! If there was a monthly payment option I would 100% get it. I think there are lots of customers who feel the same. Allowing a monthly payment option would benefit the developers by giving them more money, and give people who don’t want to spend 50 dollars at once a chance to get it.
by TDL1979 on 2019/10/21 02:53
You would think for the price there would be a better variety. The majority of the meditations are 5-10 minutes. The only ones that are longer are sounds, not my favorite. I wish they would add longer meditation times to sleep.
by Ana Gadiel on 2019/10/19 21:26
Living better! ❤️
App won’t open keeps crashing
by Go Tar Heels!!! on 2019/10/19 21:18
I have updated the app and now it won’t open and keeps crashing. Cannot use at all. Terrible.
Quality content
by Bayrdge mom on 2019/10/19 15:20
It really has a wide array of content - something for everyone. One of my favorite apps!
Relax in as little as 5 minutes
by fiveminutehabit on 2019/10/18 22:34
This is THE best app for meditation. Only 5 minutes a day, who can’t find 5 minutes right? I usually listen to it at night as it helps me relax and improves my sleep quality. Highly recommend. A+++
by I <3 Ruca on 2019/10/18 18:02
This is by far the best money I have ever spent. Has become an essential part of my morning/bedtime routine.
I looovveee this app
by Review ;p on 2019/10/17 19:40
I love this app and recommend it for people who need help sleeping want to release anxiety and want a peaceful life or just want to try something relaxing or new. I hope others are enjoying the app as much as I am. Thank you.
Great App! But need tech support after new update!
by Burtonlover83 on 2019/10/17 18:04
This app has worked great for the last year. I even paid for the premium and don’t regret it. So many topics! But with the last iPhone update it keeps crashing right at the end of the meditation around the 10 second mark and you lose your streak. And it’s not saving the meditation topic so I can access it easily for the next day, I have to go in and search for it. Need tech support please!!
by MelezaMorris on 2019/10/17 15:25
I have truly enjoyed using Simple Habit for almost a couple of years now. I appreciate the addition of new meditations and also follow up questions. A few things that I am not crazy about... 1. I would prefer if there was an option to not listen to the music before/after the meditation. Perhaps this could be a differentiation between the Premium and the free option. I understand the brand is important, but it feels like a brainwashing tool instead of just having the meditation start immediately which is the whole purpose of why this app was created. 2. When prompted as to why I have stopped listening to a meditation, the options are too limiting. 3. If I set a reminder to meditate and I happen to mediate before, it would be great if the reminder didn’t happen since the action has already been done. 4. There is a glitch on the 31 morning meditation for me because it keeps going back to day 3 even though I am on 15.
Need tech help but can’t find any info
by Cathynicknamesnttaken on 2019/10/17 14:13
The app keeps crashing with the last update and the last iPhone update. First the app wouldn’t load, now it plays most of a meditation and then shuts down just before the mediation is done! Please help. I lost my streak and haven’t been able to use the app for a week. I was trying to find a support link but it’s no where on the app. Otherwise the app is great!
Excellent App, Life-changing Results
by MCLM on 2019/10/16 15:14
I love this app. I’d been struggling to develop a meditation practice for health and Simple Habit has been the answer. I’ve learned so much from the various meditation leaders and I love sharing it with others. The only reason for not giving a 5 star review is because of the user experience. First is that the search can be improved. I know there’s a guided meditation for a variety of topics like “exam” (in fact it has “exam” in the title) but it doesn’t come up under “exam” or “test”. I’m careful to save anything that looks interesting because they can sometimes be hard to find again. Second, you can save a meditation or series but there’s no favorites list. I have to keep a separate list for specific meditations I like to go back to and it’s very cumbersome. Lastly, for a series, please indicate within the list which meditations have been completed. Sometimes I skip around or only do part of a series in favor of another that’s more relevant at the moment. Other than that, the app is very pretty with incredible topics and coaches (Kate’s voice is beautiful and now triggers me to breathe, thanks Kate!). With gratitude, M

This has helped my anxiety so much.
Love Simple Habit!
by Karow79 on 2019/10/14 11:20
I’ve tried other apps for meditation and this one is the best. There are so many good choices of sessions! And I love that it’s only five minutes in most cases. I’ve used it every day for the past eight months and it’s been a game changer. Highly recommend!
Great app.
by desert rst on 2019/10/14 04:42
Excellent selection. Wonderful messages. Thank you so much for your gift you have given to us folks in need
Ok but free version too limited
by Logic2012 on 2019/10/14 04:14
If I weren't a broke student, I might have less need for the app, ironically. Can't afford premium, which greatly limits options.
Benefits through Simpler Habit
by hildrizhausen on 2019/10/13 16:20
No matter if you can’t fall asleep, struggle with situations in life or need to figure out thoughts in your mind: Simple Habit has so many helpful, peace bringing topics from many different speakers, that are a blessing to listen to and benefit from. Listening to Simple Habit has become a steady part of my life.
What is wrong with my app??
by Chontate on 2019/10/13 14:31
My app is not working!! I recently had the premium, but I’m trying to use the free meditation and you all are not allowing me to get on the app. I will click on it and it will open up, but then shut down quickly. If you all are being funny because I’m not using premium anymore, I can act petty and file a lawsuit against your company. Fix it!!
Worse after update
by nirese23 on 2019/10/13 06:00
After last week’s update, my recent history disappeared, and the app closes after every choice I make, whether I’m moving between home and discover, or trying to play a session. This is the first time I’ve had problems since I began using it about 2 years ago.
by dlihc woc on 2019/10/12 18:22
Inspirational. Walked to the energy source and purified of the lack of enthusiasm then brought back to the true essence of my being. Great session! Thank you!
Great website
by yelham on 2019/10/12 13:01
Love all the mediations on the website. Have so many different topics to chose from. Have been using Simple Habit for almost a year and has made such a difference in my life. Thank you
Great app!
by Tesfa on 2019/10/12 12:04
The meditations are certainly helpful. The free version gives enough to get going and keep going for quite some time. The practices are different lengths and the guides help you every step of the way. At no point should you feel lost or overwhelmed.
Great App!
by Orchdluvr on 2019/10/11 22:29
I really like this app. It has meditations for any occasion. Yesterday, when I tried to open it; it opened and then closed right down again, doing this more than several times. I tried the usual rebooting my phone, uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. I hope this can be fixed; this is the best meditation app in my opinion.
Super Easy
by Kdelattre on 2019/10/11 19:47
I’m new to meditation, and this app makes it easy to choose and use the meditations I need.
Bugs popping up
by LibraSun on 2019/10/11 14:27
I’ve noticed recently that the sessions in a module won’t update as you complete them. It’s a real pain having to advance sessions manually. I’ve tried reinstalling the app to no avail. Even though I enjoy the app and use it daily, I’m considering whether I’ll renew my subscription or find another app that works better. Unless you guys fix it of course. I’m on the latest iOS build and have a iPhone 8+
Love the app when it works
by ocrazyhearto on 2019/10/11 13:58
I really love this app.. and count on it in the morning but for the past couple weeks it’s saying I don’t have any service .. when i have full service. I have to reload and reload and about half the time I can make it work. I check daily for updates but even with last weeks update it’s still off. Sorry for the bad review if it’s just my phone but this is the only app I’m having trouble with. Ohhhh please fix!! I really do love this app when it works!
Best app for those on the go
by Kaitlyn LeBlang on 2019/10/11 06:08
I love this app! But the newest version is not recording my meditation minutes or sessions :(
Took my money! Won’t refund!
by mo9kky on 2019/10/10 22:11
I was not notified when the trial was over and this app took $101.75 out of my account. I was completely unaware until I had to pay my bills!!! When I try to get a refund I’m told that my purchase doesn’t meet the requirements for a refund! I am LIVID!!!
Nice app but
by shadowofdatk on 2019/10/10 16:31
I am now not getting credit for my mediation. This started yesterday. Please fix this ASAP
Free episodes
by fabctf on 2019/10/10 14:47
Didn’t realize how few free episodes there were and how quickly free ones become a requirement for payment (day 3). Feel like the marketing of it is misleading.
Simple and peaceful
by guardchris on 2019/10/10 13:35
Best meditation app so far
Since 2017
by *DeeMC* on 2019/10/09 05:26
I have been using this app since 2017 and have had the opportunity to mold and shape my meditations that work for my routines. I finally got a friend to sign up three days ago, unlocking the full services of the app to me for free for two weeks! Super excited to finish some meditations and coaching that I couldn't before. Everything worked great this morning. And this eve as I got ready to open my app and do my sleep meditation, the app suddenly made me sign in and started me all over loosing all my info. I am so disappointed as I was just considering actually buying the service because trying it out for free for two days was amazing! I dont know where to get tech help or support. I hope not all is lost and someone will be able to get my account back.
Filter for free meditations
by Dana Jean on 2019/10/09 03:12
I understand that the developers need to monetize this product. However, it seems they’ve gone out of their way to make the non-membership experience as terrible as possible. It would be very helpful if you could filter out the subscription-only meditations. I’ve wasted so much time looking for what is available to me (the membership is way out of my budget), why can’t I just sort them?
In the Beginning
by Plynnc on 2019/10/09 01:50
After a brief introduction, I can see that using this app is a great way to easily start a consistent habit of meditation. It is very simple, pleasant and encouraging. You are not alone.
by dsfexterijg on 2019/10/08 23:55
This is what I need to think and to help me sleep and it helps get rid of stress
Love this app
by lisaanncoyne on 2019/10/08 10:58
This app has finally gotten me to meditate daily! Love the time options, I can always make a 5 minute meditation work.
Really excited to start using it but......
by raprov on 2019/10/08 02:51
I really like the style and the concept and I’ve enjoyed the first couple gos but I am also a little aghast at the premium prices. 12$ a month—- really? But I will get great enjoyment out of whatever I can to start with only time will tell if I go premium.
Try it
by JSencer on 2019/10/07 09:36
It works
Worth it.
by debbsterrr on 2019/10/06 17:34
I started off using the app’s available free content and fell in love with what it has to offer. It has helped me start my day off on a better foot as it reminds me each day to take a moment to meditate. Even within the free content I was able to find 5 or 10 minute sessions that were enjoyable. I got an itunes gift card and thought “why not” and purchased the premium. I can’t say enough good things about this app and agree wholeheartedly with paying for the content it delivers. Thank you so much for creating a beautiful experience.
Daily Vacation or Daily Self-Improvement?

I am going with the second option. All of the segments I have used over the last few years have provided food for thought, sollte to an astonishingly high degree. While I return from sex session more relaxed, I also return more thoughtful and aware of what I can do to improve my day immediately. This effect is cumulative.

I like this app because it’s teaching my busy brain to relax and meditate with ease
God meditation, awful app

God meditation, awful app. Full of bugs.
Life changing and unbelievable
by Julee Hawj on 2019/10/01 01:29
Since downloading this app, my life, my mind, my heart, and my sense of self has been deeply impacted. You wouldn’t believe what 5 mins of meditation will do for your mental health. Definitely worth a download and just text it out. You won’t be sorry.
Crashing on iPhone 11 Pro Max
by MattG1994 on 2019/09/29 19:58
Does not work on newest iPhone, always crashes. I love the app and I will change back to 5 stars once fixed.
Life Changer
by Margie 830 on 2019/09/29 14:00
I’ve been using Simple Habit for a year. I’m more focused (most of the time) and definitely more calm. I use it in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep and during the day when I feel stressed. I don’t always use it in the morning, but when I do, I feel better. And the power nap sessions get me through long days. I can’t imagine not having this tool in my life.
So comprehensive - loving Simple Habit!
by CollCounsSTL on 2019/09/29 11:21
Heard about this on the Primal Potential podcast and joined immediately. I love all the choices available and after just one week, meditation is already making a difference in my life! Thank you so much! Worth every penny!
This app is so sloooooowwwww
by jeben26 on 2019/09/27 03:20
This app is so slower to start....and none of my other apps are. I like simple habit. It is overpriced but there some teachers I really enjoy. Simple Habit has had more problems than any other app I have ever had which is irritating (I still think they are testing me....) The free meditation app is better.
Last update... 🙁
by Bethann : ) on 2019/09/26 02:37
I love Simple Habit, hence the 5 stars. But with the last update, it is cutting the mediations off before it’s finished. I’ve tried a few different ones and it’s doing it to all I tried. I’m up to 462 days not including today’s. I tried to contact the developer but it’s messed up too! Please fix!! Thank You!!
Love it!!!
by Boo Brad on 2019/09/25 14:13
This app is a great way to find peace within yourself. Life can get to be very overwhelming at times but the sounds of the instructors on here help put my mind at ease.
Free guided meditation

Recent Changes
by Jane 2019 Colorado on 2019/09/23 12:49
Simple Habit just made using this app much less desirable. I have to meditate for 5 minutes to access statistics on my meditation habits. I was also required to answer a questionnaire including information about my age before I could access meditations. I’m not going to renew my subscription due to these intrusive changes.
Can’t login on iPhone Pro Max
by Daniel Staten on 2019/09/23 11:10
I love this app and used it daily. When I got the new iPhone Pro Max, I can’t get past the onboarding screen. If I tap the login link, the app takes me through the signup process.
Wish Premium wasn’t the end-all be-all
by WanderLunchLady on 2019/09/23 02:03
I’ve really enjoyed this app. There’s lots of versatility and variety in the sessions, ranging from music to podcasts to guides meditations. I appreciate there being choices regarding length of time - 5 minutes is not so daunting, but 10 minutes is. But, two things: 1. There’s no point in falling in love with a series or set of sessions...the odds are really good that after the first few, the rest of series will be locked to you unless you pay the Premium prices. I get it, everyone’s got to make the money. But I spend more time looking for all the “free” series than I probably do looking for meditation sessions that actually would fit me best. 2. Wish there were a way to “love” the sessions I really get something out of. Once you listen to something, it drops off the radar unless you scroll through your “Listened To” feed...but even that’s not foolproof. There needs to be something in the profile section called Favorites or something. I’d love to be able refer back to sessions I enjoyed, maybe even with notes I’d taken on the sessions, speaker’s voice, etc.
Fell in love
by AnxiousLilly on 2019/09/21 18:33
I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t buy the app until I have used it the majority of two months. I have other meditation apps but I keep going back to this one-it is by far the best! Been at it every day for 2 weeks so far. And I can feel my mind state changing. I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression last year. I am on medication but this is a wonderful addition when I start to feel overwhelmed! I may end up buying well before the two month mark so I can access everything!!
by В Русс on 2019/09/21 17:23
You said there are LOTS of free content, but actually there is only twenty five percents that are free. And I am a student so I can’t pay for that much fee

I can’t say enough good things about this app. I would recommend it to everyone
Excellent App
by Ballin-on-a-budget on 2019/05/31 04:48
I just wanted to take a minute and share my two cents with you. There are always a hand full of you that look down on these (or any other) product’s development team for charging a few dollars to enjoy the “premium” features. Is it because you already spent money to buy the phone, these companies should be spending their own time and money to develop apps for you free of charge. Let me break some news to you guys, by asking you this. Are those apps you’re using that cost you zero to download and use REALLY free? Would you go to work, clock in from 9-5 every day of the week, and be contempt with big goose egg on your paycheck?? I doubt it! So why are you able to buy something without spending any money! It’s not your money they are after guys and gals! Read the fine print of what you are purchasing! They aren’t “FREE”! In fact, they are far from it! READ!! If I went to a full service gas station, said “fill it up” and at the end of the transaction they said “it’s on us”, wouldn’t something seem a little off? READ!! This is a great app, and worth every penny they are charging! Why? Because at the end of the day, I know exactly what I’m paying for! Goods and services, at the exchange of money, just like it’s supposed to be! FIVE STARS LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Keep up the great work and keep sending these awesome updates! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great, but...
by XoXo, N. on 2017/10/15 00:38
Everyday’s a struggle for me. I deal with anxiety, stress, and I personally consider myself on the verge of being depressed. Today, I decided I should try and do something about it. I downloaded this app in hopes that it could enlighten my mood, and be my shoulder to lean on when I need a little comfort. I wasn’t disappointed when I opened the app. It’s organized, and I love the format of everything. I adore how there’s an on the go feature, and most of it is speaking, so if panic/anxiety strikes in public just put on your headphones and calm down instantly. I would LOVE to give this app 5/5 stars, because frankly I think it deserves it. But, there’s one problem. You have to spend money to buy a lot of the calming aspects of the app. Music, stories, and ASMR are all things you must purchase, as there are only 1-2 free options. I really believe this app has a lot of calming properties, and I really do like it, I just don’t think it’s right to pay a ridiculous amount of money for one application. As if I think it is worth downloading? Yes. If you need a slight bit of relaxation, or just a relaxing podcast you can listen to on your way home from work, this is the app for you. If you’re looking for an app with super reasonable prices that you find yourself wanting to open every single day for a large amount of time, I frankly wouldn’t reach for this app. But I love the concept, and I just think if this were to be fixed, I would love this app that bit more.
by The-rach on 2017/11/30 16:16
I’ve used this app 6 out of the last 7 days, some days using it multiple times throughout the day. I like it a lot so far. It’s made meditation simpler for me. The instructors’ voices are soothing and visually I like the organization and simplicity of the app. Not all of the topics apply to me, but for the topics that do apply, there isn’t a ton of variety. I end up using the same session a few times in a row until I can mentally get to a good place. Not only that, but most of the practices offered are only 5 minutes long which is another reason I’ll repeat a session but this causes me to stop meditating to restart the session. So I wish there was a way to adjust the time for guided practices that really help me. I haven’t purchased I subscription yet only because I’m not sure how often new practices are added and I’m afraid of becoming bored listening to the same sessions on repeat everyday so I’m going to wait a little bit to see. But so far I’ve found it very useful to calm my anxiety. 5-10 minutes in he morning has helped lift my mood and it’s nice to use in emergency bouts of panic or obsessive thinking!
No meditations for abuse survivors
by CritterSpigot on 2018/01/27 18:44
If there are any meditations for emotional abuse survivors, I can’t find them by searching. It’s really upsetting for me that as an abuse survivor I can’t find an app with meditations that are not about managing petty anger or a stressful day at work, but serious damage from abuse. While the depression and anxiety meditations are partially helpful, some of the wording is just not at all geared towards people with PTSD and deep-seated anger that doesn’t have to do with poor anger management over small potatoes, but lingering wounds and consequences of the behavior of others that you couldn’t do anything about at the time. There really needs to be some meditations available in the free version for healing from emotional abuse, and dealing with PTSD— I was hoping to find that in SOS on the wheel, but nothing. I like this app otherwise, it’s pretty and well narrated, but I’m very disappointed that I can’t find an app that will help me with my specific problems, and do one or two meditations geared toward this for free as I have like no money 😢 I know that PTSD and abuse aren’t sexy and enticing words to plaster on a meditation title, and maybe the developers want to be more diplomatic with their language use, but some of us really need to feel included and like there are meditations specifically for our more serious problems.
My favorite meditation app ...and I have tried MANY
by Meron A. on 2019/01/06 16:28
I gave up on meditating a while ago for commons reason: because I didn’t have enough time or I didn’t prioritize it or simply because I didn’t want to even though I knew of the numerous long term benefits it could provide to my mind, body and soul. However I believe this app will allow me to incorporate meditation into my daily life and help me on my journey to a healthy mindful and happy lifestyle! Off the bat I love how short the sessions are -only 5 minutes which anybody could EASILY find time for in their morning or daily routine. Also the sessions are not like typical ones I’ve sat through where it focuses on breathing, form, etc but instead these sessions cover various different topics that allow you to meditate but also engages the mind which for me is huge because I cannot sit still for anything and often had trouble finishing my sessions in the past. The topics covered are a wide range enough for anybody to find something that could be enjoyable/interesting for them. Thank you for this GREAT app!!!
Livid + deceptive charges!!
by glad2bamom on 2019/03/18 13:55
I have been a dedicated user of this app in the past and have promoted it on my FB page, even to the point of being awarded several weeks of premium for free because I have 2.5k followers and they try the app’s free trial on my recommendation. I had a pop-up a couple of days ago asking if I wanted to try a couple of days of premium for free, after which I would be charged $95 for premium. I READ THE FINE PRINT! It said nothing about the fact that if you’ve had a free Trial in the past you can’t have one in the future. But guess what?!! THEY CHARGED MY ACCOUNT ANYWAY AND APPLE WONT REFUND ME!!! I consider this to be deceptive business practice. It’s unfortunate because I work at a Fortune 500 Company and as a member of our health and wellness committee, I am beginning a meditation education series. As part of that series I was going to run a contest by having everyone use the app to track their meditation practice for two weeks, using this app. Integrity is important to me. This app has lost my trust and I don’t think that email is going to be an effective way to reach someone. I’m certainly not going to risk my personal reputation by promoting a company that TRICKS their customers so they can charge them for an annual membership. I’m a single Mother and this is way outside of my budget. Thanks a ton Simple Habit.
Tasting Menu of Meditations
by maggie <3333 on 2018/11/11 14:06
I’ve been faithfully doing at least one meditation a day for a little over two weeks. I started with the introductory multi-day “thread” and have simultaneously undertaken several other offered threads hoping that I’m weaving a sensible path. There’s an option to set an alert but the routine has become part of my inner clock; I feel like I have forgotten something or something is amiss if I have not meditated by mid-morning. And all of the meditations are really good—clearly some resonate with my state of mind more clearly than others. The one constructive criticism of the app is that there’s the constant enticement of new meditative threads—many of which are enticing but which may disrupt the continuity of the primary thread you are currently undertaking. It might help to be able to visualize the journey in the app and be able to distinguish between the primary path of progress and the wonderful little detours that address the peripheral issues of daily life but which, I assume, are intended to be guideposts to get you back on the main path.
Good for mindfulness
by LDC100 on 2017/10/26 03:03
I've used about 5 or 6 different meditation apps over the past few years, some for long stretches of time and others just a few times here and there, experimenting with new ones to see what fresh takes they offer on mindfulness, meditation, and awareness. I think this app does an awesome job of improving mindfulness.. but if you're really going to get into deeper meditation, it's a little tough with the amount of talking he does throughout the session. I would probably recommend this app as a fantastic supplement to your day - which would include meditation on its own without distraction, this being used as more of a form of "coaching" to live better each day. Purpose of the app aside, the design is slick and the various features work well/are easy to navigate. Sort of high pricing compared to the rest of the world of mindfulness apps, but the quality is there and it's worth paying for if you are truly going to make this a once a day or few times a week habit!
by HeiLau4 on 2018/03/24 15:56
I am a person, like many others, who often feels like I do not have time to do all the things I want or need to do.. especially if it’s just for myself. Simple Habit has made it easy for me to begin a more consistent habit of no more than 5 minutes a day. I don’t do it every single day, and I forgive myself for that, but many days I can’t justify telling myself that I do not have just 5 minutes for this. It’s a practice, of course, and I still haven’t gotten to a point where I don’t think of 87 other things while I’m practicing, but it feels very good to use this app. Little to no pressure. I don’t set reminders because I will usually just turn them off and then forget anyway. I don’t pay for the premium (yet) because I’m still going through many freebies. I looked that you can find your friends and nudge them as well. I love that I know I’ve had 32 sessions so far. Overall, 5 Stars, and I’ve already recommended this app to a number of people. Love it.
Love then just another stress
by hermione753 on 2018/05/11 05:26
For an app about mindfulness, it doesn’t seem to practice what it preaches... I loved the app and meditations until the constant feedback requests got annoying (goodness forbid you gave 4 stars, it didn’t let you continue without about biased information). Then came the glitches. Now, I contacted them several times, how the app kept crashing -in the middle of meditation- and/or when it decided not to record what you did. I use the day count as a way to monitor my progress as it establishes a good habit...only to get no response when I contact about one day which isn’t showing up, and they charge you for premium-if you haven’t yet, don’t worry, only when they want you to pay for premium will you get an email back asking for feedback... If I could go back in time I would use another app whose policy is more aligned with meditation than making money such as insight timer (it is free...). Of course the meditations you like will be on premium, you would think they could have a 10 favorites they let you choose to keep if you want to use it without premium... Sorry « simple » habit, but it seems insight timer is gaining a new follower (although for you it’s losing a client)
Game changing app for parents
by KatNegrete on 2019/03/07 06:02
All my kids love this app, ranging from ages 2 to 8. They request it before nap or bed time. I LOVE Cory Muscara’s voice and guidance for children (and adults). They have a series for everything! Regarding kids, they have how to deal with difficult emotions, getting to sleep, handling a bully, etc. I like the adult sleep / stress ones. And how cool that the developers listened to my request of a “motivation to exercise” series! Can’t wait! Anyway, if you’re on the fence about this, think of it like this. You DESERVE and NEED a mental break. These meditation experts deserve a fair wage for their life changing services. Both of these things are accomplished when you buy the premium version. I’m not being paid to say this. I really am just happy to be a part of this Simple Habit community. At first I was hesitant because I’m a Christian and thought maybe this would be a weird spiritual thing. Not at all. In fact they even have a Christian scripture series! I just love this app.
Will steal your money and Do NOT offer refunds!
by Venusvoyagergirl on 2018/09/27 20:56
Terrible customer service! I downloaded this program because it sias it was a free app. Turns out to use anything worthwhile you need a membership that costs $100 a year! I thought that’s ridiculous, but it offered me a free month trial. I was planning to try it out and then cancel the trial if I decided the $100 was not worth it. Alternatively I might sign up for the monthly payments if I really wanted the program. I clicked the bottom that clearly stated “Free Trial” and then as usual with any other app in order to activate the trial you must enter your password. I did so and it immediately charged $100. I contacted Apple who told me I have to talk to the company , I contacted Simple Habit and they said I have to contact Apple and they don’t deal with refunds. I contacted Apple again and they said they can’t offer a refund and this company has to tell me why their trial didn’t work. So there you have it. Is this program worth $100? I actually don’t know because even after charging me $100 and refusing to refund it despite their app being in error it still says that I have to upgrade to use the meditations. So how about them apples? Terrible company and not worth it.
Love this app except for one thing
by Cathy4 on 2018/04/20 00:55
Updated: since the update today, the app won't stay open for me. I've sent a message via Facebook still waiting for a reply and left a question but no reply. I'm on a long streak of days and in monthly tracking. I don't want to lose it because of the app not working correctly and not able to obtain support from Simple Habit. I love this app and now I'm meditating daily since I downloaded it. I love the varying lengths of time, how many different topics, I enjoy the different voices of the people that guide the meditations. I love everything about Simple Habit except one thing. The background sounds of water are very nice and calming but the screech noise that goes off is distracting and interrupts my meditation. I don't know if it is a bird screeching or a monkey. I wish there was a way to turn it off. This app is so amazing that I gave it an easy five stars even with the screech. I even bought it as a gift for two family members.
Excellent! (Read this review for an honest answer)
by begginersyoga on 2018/04/05 13:03
This meditation is essential for my daily life style. I am dancing 6 classes along with school work and homework plus extra projects, studying and test preparation. My mind was in 20 different places at once. Dare I say it, I as on the verge of needing the doctor to step in because of my anxiety and nervousness. Each night, crying at the homework table not just because it was hard, but my teachers didn't want to help me... however, now that I started Simple Habit, I have had not ONE panic attack, not ONE anxiety session and not ONE breakdown. So I highly recommend this app not just to adults, but to children stressed with school and need something to get them back on track. Even though not everything is unlocked, I have been using everything free and I'm doing better than ever. If you can go premium, go premium! Please take my advice and be this app and be constituent ( the morning and then in the night).
Anxiety Attacks happen
by Amoviefreak on 2018/01/06 18:42
I've been having panic attacks this past year that definitely affected how I operated during the day. I also have insomnia, self doubt and day's where the negative thoughts dictate how my weeks go... I didn't want to always rely on my friends to help me out on those dark days especially when things happened at 3 or 4 am... Then i saw this app on Shark Tank and decided to check it out myself. I did a few days as a free user and within the first few days, I noticed that my thoughts became more level headed, I actually slept a little more than usual, and it had an SOS section that helped me calm down from a panic attack. I decided to pay for the premium and I am glad I did! There's provided daily sessions that has been working for me so far. I'd definitely recommend this for people who have an overactive mind and those seeking to just learn how to appreciate and just... well... people who want to breathe a breath of stress free air.
Diagnosed with Major Depression
by Brightdaykimi on 2019/03/12 02:06
I struggle with major depression and these apps have helped a lot. It’s honestly trance like, hypnotizing in a very positive way. Everyone knows that if you listen to more are more positive and when you listen to lots of negatives...vice versa etc. Listening daily to these meditations pretty much ingrains it into you mentally and even when listening to someone say breath deeply....if I’m not really paying attention, my mind will signal to my body to automatically breathe on its on. I also recommend fasting as well if you are able to. Try to eat nothing at all or nothing the entire day until late at night to keep your mind clear and very focused. With yoga and simple habit for some guides meditation now and again it works out pretty well for battling major depression. Thank you! UPDATE 2019 I recommend they add a playlist addition to add theraphy sessions we like and play them in a row like Apple Music playlist.
by AllynaLovejoy on 2018/07/12 21:54
I would recommend this app to anyone! This app helps guide you into thinking positive thoughts and building reassurance in the proper places in life. No matter what you’re going through they have people to help you in that aspect of your life; feeling lonely, building confidence, relaxing at work, not being hard on yourself, forgiving your self, appreciating your loved ones, decompression after a crazy day, dealing with trauma. This is not therapy but it’s an everyday helper to get you through and I consider it to be my therapy. Every single person should listen to “Finding Happiness” narrated by Cory Muscara. This app reminds you to take the time out of your day for yourself !! This is so important because we always focus on everyone and everything around us making it easy for our minds to get jumbled and confused. Take time for yourself every morning to start your day off right by downloading this APP
One big request!
by Kricketteer on 2018/06/20 00:53
I have been on a 45 day streak, enjoying so many benefits of presence and gratitude with this beautifully designed and comprehensive app, (complete with sos button for stressful and frustrating moments). But I have a big issue with the it, and truly considering going with another one. There is currently no way to add a meditation done outside this app. If you do one on your own, in a class, or if I have no service, then you can’t record it, and will not keep your streak. I have had a goal to meditate daily, and have...but because I didn’t record my silent meditation with the app, my timer started over today with no way of keeping track of my progress. I truly love so much about this app, but this is frustrating to not be able to track accurately. This would be 5 stars for me, with this one request: to offer a way to add times, to keep track of meditation times all within one place. Thank you for designing and creating something so helpful and beautiful! 💜
Great Teachings not User Friendly to Manage Favorite Practices
by Italianamericangirl on 2019/10/22 19:10
I would have given a much higher rating but 2 things made/make this app less then great. 1. The ladies voice: I am very thankful that changed! Playing the woman’s voice at the beginning of each meditation saying “Simple Habits a daily vacation....” was so awful! But they changed that, you must be listening to your reviews, that is great! 2. Favorites tab please: I want to favorite the meditations I want to frequent. There is no way of doing this, no way of clearly tracking who you follow and the exact meditation you want to do again. So basically I start over every time I want yo target something I want to reflect on when I already found a meditation I loved. Some of my favorite meditations I can’t find again. This really NEEDS to change or I will need to find another app. I am planning on testing a few others. But I’d stay right here, if this was possible in Simple Habits. They have a great variety of meditation instructors that are very good, hence a 3 and not a 1 or 2.
Intros to Meditation Sessions
by Hopeful_User on 2018/05/07 13:38
Overall, this app is pretty good. It’s great for being able to fit a little bit of meditation into each day, even with a busy schedule. My one big criticism, and this is true for a lot of different meditation apps, though I had hoped that this one might be different, is of the lengthy intros at the beginning of sessions and series of sessions. I understand the need for an intro sometimes, but I wish they were recorded separately from the actual meditations themselves. If I’m starting a series, such as the one on Gratitude, for example, I am committed to it, and have already done my research. I just want to get to the meditation. I really don’t want to listen to a 4-minute into talking about the benefits of gratitude mindfulness and meditation. Some may want this, and if it was recorded separately, people could have the option of listening to it, but please don’t force me to listen to it. It is honestly just annoying and counterproductive. Overall good app, but could use some fine-tuning in this regard.
Learning New Way to Meditate
by Lovin' Oven ❤️ on 2019/03/10 23:10
I found this app by accident. Been doing a regular meditation found on U-Tube for over a year and found it very helpful. I started a new job a couple of months ago in my field of study counseling, but using a whole new process and technique after being out of work for 10 years as a counselor. Thrilled for the new job but overwhelmed and stressed over the extensive amount of new things to learn, with my older ADD mind. Been listening to these new meditation for 3 days finding less stress, more calm, confidence and peace of mind. Anxiety and fear lessen a lot from previous thoughts and fears. Feeling less overwhelmed and feel these meditation series may be the answer to my prayers to a relaxed mind & body. My high blood pressure is decreasing too. Thanks for this app and for hopefully the “life preserver” I’ve been looking for. Hope this will save my job. Thanks a million! ❤️
The shark tank deal didn’t last as long as it said it would
by RissaAlexandra on 2017/10/12 05:48
I immediately downloaded this app after watching shark tank because I hated the way she was treated and I think meditation and mindfulness is so important. I wanted to buy the membership because there’s hardly any options on the app without being a member and I really loved what limited options were available. I decided to give it a few days before I purchased a membership and figured I had time for the special shark tank deal (because it told me I had 4 days). Last night the app told me I had 2 days left for their special shark tank deal ($5 something a month) but now today it’s saying its back to its regular price :( it didn’t give me the 2 days it said it would. Really bummed about that as I was planning on purchasing the app right now but I can’t really justify spending 90 something bucks on this right now. The 60 dollar range fit my budget more. So I’m disappointed about that but the app is very nice and I can see why it will help people.
Finally a daily practice
by aaturnerin on 2018/11/10 13:36
I have tried to consistently begin and end my day with mediation for at least the past year. Countless apps have been installed and deleted. This is the first app that has really made it easy to form a habit of meditation. I love the recommendations that it gives and the easy user interface. I love that there are quick “I feel” or “I need “ prompts that give you recommendations for a meditation in that moment. And I love that it simply gives you positive feedback after each meditation and will give a reminder to meditate if you set it up. So far I have used the free version and all of this comes with it. There’s no clicking and then realizing that the feature that I wanted to explore is a paid feature only. I will be purchasing soon only so that I get the full library of mediation exercises. Great app, I’ve recommended it to numerous people.
Special needs Mom finds peace

I am a 52 year old Mom of 3. My 21 year old is severely disabled, medically fragile and lives with us. I am his primary caregiver with help from nursing care. It’s beyond words how stressful and complicated having a 100% disabled child (from birth) can be. I have found myself so lost and depressed often. My days are hectic trying to manage my sons life, run our home, care for my other children, and work in my marriage. I am quite literally doing a million things at once. I found simple habit, and it has become my new best friend. Helping me to calm down and Breathe. Among so many other wonderful new pathways of focus that I am discovering. I was trying longer meditation but it was challenging. This is a fantastic app. And to be able to “browse” for what suits a persons needs at the moment. So great. Thank you. I am so grateful for simple habit. Julie.
Excellent app thus far, just wish it were iPad optimized!

I am more relaxed without my cell phone around, which is more likely to ping with a notification and disrupt things (I know, I know... Do Not Disturb). But also my iPad Pro is super fast and stands up nicely by itself, but... the app is sideways in that configuration (come on, Apple)... so that is a bit of a bummer. Still, the app is amazing because the meditation guidance quality, from what I have experienced so far, is above and beyond what I have experienced in other apps (I used Calm quite a bit, but haven’t been meditating as much recently). Simple Habit has me getting back into my groove and then some, with guidance so good and varied (Before An Interview... Single And Happy... etc.) you really start to look forward to the whole experience, not just the clarity and focus that comes after. Excited to keep up the Simple Habit in 2018, and looking forward to the iPad app! ;-)

I have had insomnia for the past 2 years and just learned to except that it takes me an hour to go to bed. Then, I found Simple Habit! I listen to a sleep meditation every night and now I fall asleep in minutes!! If I am stressed out I will listen to a calming meditation. All of the voices are soothing and calming. I don’t have premium but most of the really good meditations are premium. I do understand that this is a business but I think that (creators) Simple Habit should have some more all free meditations. What I mean by that is that you can find a free meditation then you click on it and you see there are 3 classes but 2 out of the 3 are premium. So I think that Simple Habit should just change that bit up. But that is just my opinion. Anyway, if you have anxiety, insomnia, or mental stress you should DEFINITELY download this app!!! -Madison💕
Highly recommend

As a long time sufferer of chronic pain, depression and insomnia this app has been a big help to me. One thing I need to get out of the way first because I see it's the one big complaint is that there is a premium to pay to access all the features. Yes that's true but it's a service there is no scam if you take the time to actually read the agreement they are very transparent in that regard. To me my health and state of mind are a number one priority and quite frankly the premium is cheaper than all of the other therapies I have to attend so to me personally it's worth it. I've tried alot of different apps but they just don't work for me as much as this one. It doesn't make me feel bad if I miss a session and it's very user friendly. I highly recommend and thank you simple habit team for putting some joy in my day.
Never Thought of Myself As a Meditator
by JPBedell on 2017/11/08 13:20
In my ten years as an iPhone user I don’t think I’ve ever written an app review. But after two weeks of using simple habit I can say it’s one of those apps that really does change your life. I know that sounds hyperbolic, but let me try to explain. The device you’re using to read this review right now is part of the ongoing onslaught your limited attention faces. We all have too much to do. Too many commitments and too many things pulling at our mind. Simple habit transforms your phone from a distraction machine to a focus builder. But! You have to be in a place to accept and use the app to do so. I’m no expert but the switch that flipped for me was approaching mindfulness and meditation as a practice not something I’d do perfectly the first time. After three or four tries it felt more relaxed. Now I use the app 3-4 times a day. Feeling distracted and frazzled at your desk? Do a five minute session. Feeling harried between presentations? Do a walking meditation. Putting your 1 year old back to sleep at three am? Unguided ocean sounds work wonders. I’m still a novice but I can tell you I already feel less stressed and even happier as I go about my day. So my fellow skeptics. All I can say is be open and give it a try.
Fantastic Meditation App
by Pull Weeds on 2018/01/28 07:32
I’ve tried a lot of meditation apps, but Simple Habit is by far the best. Oren is an outstanding teacher. He times it all just right, the pauses, the reassurance (it’s okay if your mind wanders, acknowledge it and refocus on the breath - something that), the encouragement (welcome back & other + phrases) and, best of all, his voice is soothing. When I hear his voice, it’s like that of a friend & my stress immediately comes down a notch when he starts talking. I can tell my stress and anxiety is higher when I don’t use this app to meditate. Don’t think I have played sessions by other teachers yet because Oren is so good! The sessions are short & helps to keep me coming back. Thank you for all the hard work which went into this app & thank you for finding Oren!! My only complaint is the app cost, both plans are too much for me. I’ll use the free for now & hope you have a “special” soon!
Therapist approved
by Kendall McMahan on 2017/11/04 12:03
I am a therapist who leads meditations on a regular basis. I have used probably at least 10 different meditation apps for my own use in the past 5 years and this is by far my favorite! I love the series options—it’s nice to have the meditations build on each other and to have that sense of accomplishment when it is completed. My favorite feature is “on the go.” I love being able to select how much time I have and where I am/what I’m doing and getting matched with a meditation. The most appealing aspect of the app is that you can genuinely get great use out of it with the free version. Obviously the premium edition offers more, but unlike most free versions I have used, it continues to be a helpful tool with broad access beyond the first week of use. I love that money as a barrier has been removed.
What a great idea. Though, it can do better ;)
by VanessaY on 2018/03/29 05:51
This is the best meditation app I have used. A wide range of very practice topics. And it really works for whatever intention I have started with. However, the only thing I feel the app can improve is that the “dealing with sexual harassment /assault” meditation could be free. I just think that it’s such critical topic for not only women, but men. And for genders and identities that are not just defined by “man” and “women”. It’s so critical and I think it should not be locked into the “premium” but open to the regular users too. I pay for the premium because I value the idea and development of the app and am willing to pay to improve my own mindfulness. But for that particular meditation, I think it is so specific, and it could make so much difference that it should be... just free.
Good but not good enough
by Ki11er8unny on 2018/07/11 23:29
I do appreciate all the teachers and the wonderful content on the app. It’s got a lot of great things about it. However, I’ve compared both this app and the Calm app for two weeks now and my personal choice is the other app. Simple Habits has way too many different teachers whom all have different voices of course. I feel like it throws off the balance. Also, it doesn’t have as much to offer like the Calm app like music and sounds and stories and learning materials. It’s even cheaper and more bang for your buck. Also, to the developers, I hate to sound like a nuisance but you have to get rid of that annoying piano clip played at the end of each meditation. It almost gives me anxiety and I’ve never had anxiety before. It throws off everything once you’re all calm and relaxed then suddenly this loud piano clip plays. Sorry guys haha.

I struggle with depression and anxiety and have never really found a reliable form of relief. I found myself in cycles of highs and dark lows, and at my lowest my motivation was gone. What made it worse is I responded to these challenges with myself in anger. Very unhealthy. Out of desperation, I tried this app (since meditating on my own wasn’t doing the trick). I really can’t minimize how much this has helped. I can now escape my doubts, or at least work through them. When I’m anxious I can now take a minute, choose a meditation and I find clarity. In finding this tool, there has been a chain reaction of positivity. Work is better, socializing is better, my relationship is better, and I’m better to myself. I can’t express how thankful I am for this, and I tell everyone I know who’s struggling to give it a try.
Feeling Centered
by mpassini on 2017/12/18 15:27
Although I am constantly pushing away my reminders (that I set up in the app) because my brain is always on overdrive, when I DO stop and take even five minutes and go through the meditations I am never disappointed. I feel calmer, more relaxed, more energetic, and the chaos in my head seems to quiet just a little bit. And that is a huge reason I love this app. I haven’t tried the paid version yet because I want to use this more consistently first, but I have a feeling I will be upgrading soon. Guided meditation is a must for me. I can’t quiet my own brain by myself. It’s like “Where’s Waldo” in there 24/7. I’m sure some people reading this review can relate. This app really helps you find Waldo, so-to-speak, and get a little relief from all the thought traffic going on.
Calming and Helpful
by Ruby (The zombie) on 2018/11/17 16:29
I deal with my emotions in the harshest ways possible... my emotions are always out of control for me, and I could never control them one bit... This app is so helpful, and it makes my days much more relaxing and calming. I’m learning little by little to build myself up instead of tearing myself down. It’s content is amazing, even when you aren’t on anything premium. The way the app works is simple and flowing, so I don’t have to worry about how to do this or how to do that within the app. I’ve recommended this and sent invites to many of my friends, and I hope they can use it for themselves as well. I also recommend this to anyone, and I mean anyone. Even if you don’t have problems, it’s nice to just feel one... to feel whole and relaxed... thank you :)
For the 1st time ever I can say an APP has helped change my life!
by tifftenney on 2019/07/04 08:38
I believe this is my first review ever written because I usually just don’t take the time to do it unless something really impressed me! I’m a Prek teacher and of course frazzled, exhausted and a little grouchy by the time I get home to my own kids each day. I have bad insomnia and terrible anxiety on some days. But I made a promise to myself that I would at least do 5 mins a day and that was 115 days ago! I do much more than 5 mins now and it has completely changed my life! It’s not a magic pill but if you are ready and you work at this very simple practice it can help you in all areas of your life too. ! I urge you to give the paid monthly subscription a try it’s totally worth it!!! Thanks so much Simple Habit !!
Maybe life saver (or extender)
by csktanderson on 2018/07/26 14:27
Strong words but this app is a life saver for me. I was recently diagnosed with general anxiety disorder, ocd and removed attachment disorder. I’ve been Blessed in my life but these things have plagued me for most of my life due to childhood traumas. I don’t want to take medication as I believe the mind is powerful, concerns of long term affects and I have make a decent life coping (Well, living) with these things but mentally exhausted. I have been doing this for a week now with 4 sessions a day. What I have learned has been wonderful and so helpful. You have of take it to heart and apply what you learn . My anxiety doing simple task like brushing teeth, mowing lawn and even driving have been reduced by 80%. I will continue to do this as I can only imagine where I can be in a year from now.

I don’t ever write reviews but I had to for this because the customer service was phenomenal. Dori especially. When I had an issue with my credit card signing up, I got an email response back right away from Dori apologizing for the mishap and giving me 2 weeks free of premium. Now that my 2 weeks are over I emailed asking if I could still receive the 50% off promo that was going on when I first tried signing up a few weeks ago. She emails me back right away with a link giving me the promotion even though it’s technically not going on anymore. Not only is the customer service outstanding but the variety of meditation selections are endless. I fall asleep every night so easily with this ap. And relax during the day whenever I need to. Flawless 👌🏼
Worth every penny
by Frogmanwithbooty on 2018/04/22 20:29
For the last 5 years I have struggled with anxiety and it was detrimental to my education, relationships, work, etc.. I found it hard to do things I enjoyed without feeling crippling anxiety. Someone had recommended meditation and I never could get into it. I tried multiple apps like headspace and calm but it never worked. Finally I came across this beautiful creation. This app has a simple step by step approach that has really done wonders. I feel like a whole new person. Medication free because of meditation with this app. I went ahead and bought the full version because every penny is worth it when I’m living a happier and healthier life. It is truly, with this app, a simple habit. Thank you for changing my life one meditation at a time.
by toomuch5554433 on 2018/08/07 10:58
I used to use Simple Habit to help me fall asleep at night. It really helped and I got better sleep. The sleep series I really liked were free which was great. Then I thought I didn’t need meditation anymore and deleted the app. Decided to redownload the app because I’ve been having trouble going and staying asleep. Went back to those series and only 2 were free and the rest were premium. That’s how everything on the app is now. I’d buy premium but I don’t have a lot of money and it’s $7.99 a month! Overall $90 a year and it’s a $90 payment right away! I get they want some profit but the price used to be so much cheaper. Definitely DON’T recommend if you don’t have a decent amount of money to spend on it. Will be finding another meditation app until they fix some of these things. Going to miss the meditations and the teachers, they were really great.
Lifesaver !
by mamalee33 on 2017/11/28 16:07
My elementary aged son and I use this app and its absolutely wonderful! He has ADHD and suffers from tics when under stress, anxiety or too much excitement. He listens to a calming session and it brings him down to a calming level. He uses the breathing techniques when he’s at school. I use the calming anxiety for my GAD and it assists me wonderfully. We both use the sleeping better sessions. I put it on for him and even though it’s a 20min session, he falls asleep in 5 mins or less. When I use it I fall asleep in mins! Their voices are soothing and if you really release yourself into it, it’ll truly help. Also, it’s not expensive compared to sessions in a therapists or life coaches office. I wish they billed me monthly and not a whole lump sum that would equal out to a low monthly price.
Wonderfully Supportive
by Reeves.M on 2017/11/22 05:01
I scoffed at the idea of meditation...humming and touching your index finger to your thumb, right? But here, these trained professionals guide you through without pressure, pretentious attitudes, or money schemes. The app seems to be developed by those genuinely seeking to help others. You WANT to continue the series because being able to calm your panic or stress (rather than relying on others) is an invaluable skill and you actually feel relief. Without a doubt, I’ll be signing up for their subscription because it is an affordable release for my brain. Between class, hoops for higher education, a social life, and other responsibilities, I hardly get time to breathe and don’t even realize it until it’s too much. That’s where this app comes in.
great for spirituality
by @purplepearknits on 2019/07/27 03:27
omg this app literally is sO helpful. i pay attention to more things around me and actually stay off my phone much more. meditation has given me a huge purpose in life & simple habit helps me connect to my spirituality. essential oils, crystals, dimmed lights & guided meditation have become my go to for a stressful day or even just a self love session ❤️ the premium is literally the BEST $96 i have ever spent -16 yo female student ONE REQUEST: it would be super amazing to have an easier way to see my list of meditations. i have noticed that when i add a new meditation the oldest one will disappear from the list :/ maybe a separate page for lists? and we could make multiple (sleep list, romance list etc)? would be amazing xoxo ❤️❤️
Would love OTG available again
by Paromia on 2017/09/19 18:54
I have been using this app for three months now. Moving to a new city and walking to the subway and riding the subway, OTG was very helpful. Having a quick escape during work was helpful as well. Having it taken away was a bit jarring to be honest. I'm weaning off my medications because my husband and I are trying to get pregnant and was thrilled at first to have found this app to supplement therapy. I love the app overall and do find it better than Headspace. After reading other comments and responses I truly hope that OTG will become available for free again as it sounds like it has been helpful for others as well. Thank you so much for this great app and service!
An investment in self
by ashsaysOM on 2019/01/15 19:10
I started using the free version of this app and after weeks of meditating “on the go” I finally decided to make the investment and purchase a years subscription. I haven’t looked back- consider it an investment in finding peace, your breath, an inner calm. The diversity of each of the meditations means there is something for everyone and they are always releasing new meditations to suit your niche needs. Have a meeting? An exam? An angry toddler? There is a meditation for that! The price can seem expensive at first, but when you consider how easy it is to blow $100 at a store or restaurant, the price is worth it. I think it averages out to about .26 cents a day. If it helps guide you to becoming your best self, it’s worth it. Happy meditating!
Nice way to meditate
by caw860 on 2018/06/24 11:06
I saw Shark Tank when your CEO creator pitched the sharks. I tried the free app and found it helped me to fall asleep on several occasions. I wanted to try the premium app but the $9.99 a month cost turned me away. Then you sent me an email about a Groupon special and I decided to give it a try. I haven’t regretted it. Your administration should consider lowering the cost of the app. More users hardly costs you anything, and the net profits go directly to the bottom line. Many people who need this app “simply” can not afford that $9.99 monthly cost. We are all turning into a subscribe society, sign up and paying each month without second guessing the cost-if it’s reasonable. Love the app and wish more could enjoy the benefits.
Value diminishing quickly
by Captain_rp on 2018/09/15 14:13
I bought this app over a year ago after seeing it on Shark Tank and used it every night to help my 10 year old son relax and go to sleep. We looked forward to the meditations, had our favorite narrators and my son mimicked the jingle, “a daily vacation for your mind” in his best Australian accent. While we quickly ran out of new 5 minute sleep meditations to try, I upgraded so that we would have access to more. Seemed like a worthwhile purchase since we listened every night. Recently, without notice, Simple Habit is holding our meditations for ransom. You can no longer listen to a full series (even a series you had access to before). On the third meditation of a series, you get a message that you have to upgrade to have access. Simply Horrible. Building your business on the backs of loyal customers instead of having the smarts and creativity to get new users is not cool and I am going to drop my subscription.
Life changing
by Rkbmsp on 2018/03/13 09:16
This app is amazing and well worth the money. I discovered it when I got a new iPhone and tried it out for a bit and immediately felt the changes. I was able fall asleep so much easier and faster with the sleep meditations and wake up feeling like I had actually slept for the first time in forever. Meditating on the bus and waking around the city and what not gave me a whole new perspective on the world around me. The meditation guides challenge you to think about perspective you may experience in life and to reflect on your feelings in such beneficial ways. This app helps me to get into meditation and overall helped my process of becoming a happier, healthier and more relaxed carefree person. Thank you simple habit!
Incredible Invention of An App 9/10
by Hamis awesome and turtles on 2018/10/14 01:12
Just starting to use will update review after further use. I’m loving the way this app is built and structured and how they put things infront of you and even in the settings page there is, The Science Of Meditation and that right there after my first 3 meditations that was more than enough “Why’s” as to why this should be a practice everyone takes part in and “Why” this app is definitely the best one to do it. The only Reason i’m not giving it 10/10 is because there is a subscription $ I understand and I completely want to support and “Back” this Company and its project and “Impact” it wants to make but I think that Support i want to give should be “Optional”
