Amazing app
by Cocopancakes on 2019/04/24 22:38
This app has helped my anxiety tremendously. It never fails to calm me down. I totally recommend it.
I love this app
by niftyjn on 2019/04/24 21:44
I have tried others but they are either too long or get so complicated with mantras etc that I lose focus The daily calm is just right...so I’m much more likely to participate Short with timely focus each day!!!
Absolute Fraud
by Calm is Terrible on 2019/04/24 21:17
Absolute money thieving fraud of a company. I downloaded their “free“ app. Never used it. Never even opened it. Without any notification or any updates or any authorization they build my account for $75.07 days later. Imagine that? Auto billed for a year with no notice. For an app named, “Calm” to put one through this kind of stress is absolutely disgusting and my only wish is that this company goes under faster than a cinderblock in the ocean. That would make me “calm.”
Don’t buy
by Lesa 6plus on 2019/04/24 19:50
Don’t install this because once you do you can never delete the app. If cancel your subscription the icon will forever be there and if your phone automatically updates your apps it will reinstall and change you again. Can’t get rid of it !!!
Excellent app..best relaxation
by Bunnygal13 on 2019/04/24 18:41
I love this app. It helps me tune out the craziness and help me calm down
It’s luke warm
by heampbell on 2019/04/24 16:29
I do enjoy this app and find that it helps me fall asleep or wind down. My primary complaint is that for $60, the majority of every meditation is the same. Whether it’s calming flight anxiety or learning about sleep, only a few minutes of each meditation is different. For how much the app costs, I don’t understand why they can’t fold in more research tidbits. Or calming truths about the specific issue. 7.5 minutes out of 11 will all be the same with just a few differences at the end. The sleep stories and nature sounds are nice, so if you want to spend $60 on that you can. Or you can find the Zen Garden pandora station and fall asleep for free.
SO glad I learned about this!!!
by Gramma Puppy on 2019/04/24 14:00
I’ve only started to use this - have heard a couple stories (well, part of them - they quickly put me to sleep)! And the calming sounds are fabulous - soooooo peaceful.
Great App!!!
by MaJic60 on 2019/04/24 08:07
I initially got this app while I was still working. I primarily used it for the sleep stories. It helped me to fall asleep quickly. And although I might wake up during the night, if I didn’t fall back asleep quickly, I would .listen to another story. I should say “start to listen to” a story, as I don’t think I’ve ever heard the end of a story.now that I am no longer working, I continue to use it. There are many stories to choose from with many different narrators. I have recommended this app to other people with problems sleeping.
Tryna get help
by ScincerlyDisappointed on 2019/04/24 06:41
I’m just trying to look for a getaway to help me sleep, and I’ve seen this everywhere so I thought it was a sign. However, I didn’t know you had to pay that much for all the stories. What if there are teens such as myself who doesn’t have a lot of money and wants an app to help with their routine. I know you have to make a profit off of your business but at least help us, because after realizing that price I feel like Alice tryna get to the garden through that tiny door.
Got scammed i guess
by hq831 on 2019/04/24 06:08
Free trial ran out and it instantly charged me $70 cancelling my credit card.
Terrible

Rest
by vickysvictory on 2019/04/24 02:56
I really love this app.... it helps me fall a sleep when I have troubles. Very nice.
Satisfied costumer
by mad brittney on 2019/04/24 02:53
So I have a confession to make when I first tryed this app I was very mad because I didn't understand it and then this great very helpful man helped me he is named Nathan and he helped me throught it all and I love this app and I think Nathan should get a raise because he was very helpful and very kind so thank you Nathan for this wonderful experience you have helped through
Pls. Cancel
by msname on 2019/04/24 00:02
I want to cancel this app but it is not easy to do. I don’t want to pay $70.00 for something I can get through Alexa.
Pretty good if you don’t mind a subscription cost
by EEEwash on 2019/04/23 18:26
Very nice app. Once you download it for free you assume it will have free features...not entirely true. It’s subscription base. So you are very limited in the features you can try unless you sign up for the free trial for 7 days. After the free trial it will charge you $69 a year or so. I wish it had more options for those who don’t want to sign up for anything. Other than that the app is very serene, user friendly and easy to navigate.
Relaxation
by rejuvenate19 on 2019/04/23 17:39
I enjoy this website because it relaxes my mind and allows me to start my day with peacefulness!
Pricey
by aliceinwinderland51 on 2019/04/23 14:58
You have to pay to do certain meditations and the app freezes up a lot
🥳
by 🐬girl on 2019/04/23 14:30
This app took all my stress away so quickly!😍🥰🥳
Family Sharing?
by SugarLandSuperman on 2019/04/23 13:54
Great app, but how do we access the family sharing? My wife purchased this, yet I can only access the free portion; as much is locked.
Ricura🤤❤️
by Arelis ( Mamá de Camila) . on 2019/04/23 13:13
Me encanta🤩
Fantastic app
by bdsh.14 on 2019/04/23 12:01
I have tried many meditation apps but this is the best mindfulness app I have ever seen. It has been extremely helpful to keep me calm. The daily meditations are awesome. Though I don’t like the sleep stories and calm music, but it deserves an all-star rating only for meditations and it’s after effects. Some of the calm masterclasses are good. Hope they bring more of that. Also it’s a bug -free app. Never had any issues of crashing.
10 minutes each day CAN change your life!
by Buck Mountain Fan on 2019/04/23 11:51
Calm is the first thing I do every morning. It has changed my life by helping me cope with all sorts of problems and issues. But change is a process. So I continue to grow and learn and change by listening to Tamara for 10 minutes each morning.
Daily CALM Is a Daily Help
by Barnums on 2019/04/23 11:43
In the past year, I have had to deal with many serious, stressful, and sad situations. I never knew from day to day what would come my way. The one thing I knew I could count on, was my CALM app. I began each morning with meditation and the Daily Calm. It brought instant peace and confidence. During the day, if things became overwhelming, I would listen to one of the many excellent meditations on anxiety or stress. My walks would include listening to the excellent Master classes. I have listened Daily now for over a year, and it has had a huge impact on my life. To Tamara and everyone at CALM, thank you!
Crashes?
by Emeraldkiara on 2019/04/23 08:41
Really like the app and the soundscapes are very relaxing-but it crashes a lot, usually a couple times in a row after opening the app for about 5 seconds. Would like that to be fixed
Positive
by Datsthem on 2019/04/23 08:33
Love this app
Prepare to Pay
by Smayv on 2019/04/23 06:41
99% of the content is locked behind the subscription fee. It would be nice to have a few full programs available for free to get me into using the app daily and for it to demonstrate its value to me before asking for such a hefty payment. However, anything of use is locked. Sadly, I’ll be letting this one go. There are plenty of more reasonably priced comparable resources out there.
Only thing I wish would change is the payment options
by FairyGodMother1124 on 2019/04/23 03:27
If they broke the payment down I would keep my account open but I don’t have just 69.99 all at once I’m a single mother but I love this app god knows I do
I use this app almost every night
by Ashdassh on 2019/04/23 02:44
This app has helped me fall asleep every night I’ve used it. It’s so helpful for people who have anxiety and I love that I can pick the background sound. The premium is so worth it on this app, especially since I use it so often.
This app really does help
by App User 101 🐶 on 2019/04/22 22:12
It is so soothing. It let’s you take 10-15 minutes to be with yourself. It helps you overcome and help anxiety and stress. It makes you more happy. And helps you sleep. It’s the best. 😔🙂😎😁
This app is Bomb (.)
by roxanne hernandez on 2019/04/22 21:23
I am a little girl of 13 years old and I struggle a lot on staying still during school, tests, and on falling asleep. but this app has increased and has helped my sleep. And of staying still, I keep my mind only on the things I am suppose to. And I even look younger from all the stress taken out. And I think better when I am about to answer something. Really recommended (for all ages). And I would totally recommend y’all to get this.
Wow

No. Just... no.
by cosmotcat on 2019/04/22 09:19
Was dying to love this app... but... no. Just... no. $70 a year for... what?
Changed my life for the better
by Want2LikeIt on 2019/04/22 07:42
I’ve never written that before about an app but in this case it’s true. I’ve been using Calm for about a year and it’s helped manage my anxiety and its accompanying symptoms such as insomnia. I’m amazed by and grateful for this app.
Volume
by MaggieMay1920 on 2019/04/22 06:27
I’m not sure if I’m missing something but please add a way to control the volume from inside the app. I want to listen to the story on low but have my ringer volume up high for my alarm clock in the morning. I’ve seen this feature on other apps and I’m really surprised it’s not on this one, that’s why I think I might have missed it somehow? If I am missing something, then my bad, 5 stars.
Stressed out now
by poppyharlow2.0 on 2019/04/22 04:59
Seeing that $69 charge stressed me out so much I can’t enjoy app. Will probably delete
$$$$$
by aje84 on 2019/04/22 03:24
I think Calm would wonderful but the subscription plan is expensive is calculated for the year.
Would love to be able to set preferences
by mad_foot on 2019/04/21 22:23
I prefer this to Headspace for the sleep stories, and the options for kids are much better. Lots more meditations geared for them. I really hate the music upon startup tho, it’s supposed to be soothing but I find it grating and would love to be able to set it to make nature sounds when I open it. Or something like that.
Great App
by Suduko1 on 2019/04/21 21:16
Works great and is very relaxing!
Amazing! No regrets for the money spent
by Harmony&Hope on 2019/04/21 21:06
I use it daily now, though I did not at first. At first I got it to start the practice of meditating but like most habits I want to establish, I quickly lost my stride and pretty much gave up. But because I often listened to the bedtime stories and used its "Scenes" for white noise to get work done, the app stayed on my radar and kept encouraging me. Eventually I tried the meditation part again, permitting myself to do it while lying down, right before falling asleep, (not the 'right' way). This training wheels method worked for me. Now I do the Daily Calm every morning and another meditation before bed (both sitting upright in a relaxed but alert position). Best of all, when I sense my stress levels rise during the day, I can focus on the breath and return a bit easier to a sense of calm. Much thanks to Tamara Levitt and all at Calm. 🙏
Clam helps
by MaeSunshineTuckerMoon on 2019/04/21 20:43
Clam helps you deal with your life and helps me even though I am 9 and still under a lot of stress. I love Clam and I hope you will too! Mae-
NOT free
by California Chestnut on 2019/04/21 19:51
I’d give it two stars if the free content was worth the time. My experience was listening to the guide natter on about a subject instead of guiding a meditation.
Good but....
by billyc123 on 2019/04/21 19:02
It is awesome it really helps me but literally EVERYTHING is locked I mean there r like 2 things u can do I mean just annoying u know
AMAZING
by good games studio on 2019/04/21 16:41
It helps a lot from my anxiety and I’m more calm then ever and it has anything you need help from anxiety to stress
Life changer
by EchosInTheWind on 2019/04/21 16:31
This is a amazing app that thought me things I never knew. I actually look forward to coming back to it daily and it is changing me for the better day by day. The only feature that I wish existed was a way to only list the sessions that I favorited.
More free
by Irisit on 2019/04/21 16:25
It should give more options for free
Automatically charges you
by duped and not happy on 2019/04/21 14:23
Be aware, just by downloading this app you will be charged $70 and they will take your money without apology or refund. I can’t believe that is allowed.
THE ONLY REAL REVIEW HERE
by SalsDope on 2019/04/21 10:06
This app has got to be the biggest scam app there is lol even 90% of their reviews are fake. Literally doesn’t help you to sleep whatsoever and you can easily just go on YouTube yourself and look up some asmr videos for FREE. Seriously these guys want over $300 for a “lifetime “ fee. Not worth it.
Would be great...
by Gin T. on 2019/04/21 08:36
I’m sure this app would be great, if any of the features were accessible without shelling out $70. I downloaded it on a night that I was struggling, thinking it would help to put me in a better state of mind. Unfortunately, every section was limited to one or two options each with everything else being locked. Seems every “wellness” app is like this. Tbh, I’d prefer to just have to look at ugly ads.
My rate
by Scrape girl on 2019/04/21 03:48
It was a good app but I think you should put pictures
Most items are pay-to-use
by K. Wren Leigh on 2019/04/21 02:45
Vast majority of the items in the app (sleep, music) are only available on the paid version. I find the idea of paying $70 a year, in a single payment, very stressful. Uninstalling.
Best app in the AppStore
by @Folksrtalking on 2019/04/20 21:29
This an app amazing!
Free
by PlsListenToMuSuggestuons on 2019/04/20 20:57
First, way to many stories have to be premium. At least 25-30 stories should be free. Not just 3-4. Second, you should have a section of stories that are free. It would help instead of searching through all of the stories to find a free one.
I wish you would make this game a little more fun
by Calizforniam on 2019/04/20 20:26
Bjfhfgghgfcvbhgfghnhgghhgfghjj but any way I LOVE this app
Relaxing
by Aspencf on 2019/04/20 18:03
I am doing a session to help get more sleep and it works really good when you’re doing the session it’s about 10 minutes out of your time and it helps you relax and it works really good I highly recommend it
Subscription

How do I cancel it it won’t let me
Calm is great
by mochimochi123 on 2019/04/20 15:18
I have been using calm for about a year now and it has really helped me. I definitely recommend it!
It’s good.
by Kosetentiniyos on 2019/04/20 14:26
Enjoyed the app but It should be for free
Completely locked
by Hdinwnf on 2019/04/20 07:49
I got this app looking to find a story, or something that could help me sleep as I saw advertised online, instead what I found was the entire app locked behind a paywall, with maybe two to three free stories. Seems like a fine app if your willing to pay $70 a year for it.
Amazing!
by lizard skynyrd on 2019/04/20 02:48
This app helps you take a moment for yourself! I use it when I’m feeling over whelmed and it brings me back to my center. The daily reminders help you stay focused on your goal! Without this app I’d be a lot less mindful!
Calm
by calmfulhayley on 2019/04/20 02:23
Really calming this app helps me just relax and take a few moments to just let free!
I love it
by Saratheonewholovesthisapp on 2019/04/20 01:53
This app is great !!! I can always count on it to put me right to sleep!! I love it!!
Tamera Levitt
by SandruhDee on 2019/04/19 15:08
If she is the true author of many of these meditations & stories, she is brilliant. BUT I really wish there would be more options for readers to read her work instead of her reading it herself because unfortunately many of the people I know, myself included, cannot stand listening to the way she reads. It’s her voice, it’s the way she forces every word to have vocal fry. It’s the way she adds so much inappropriate emotion where it doesn’t belong. It’s strong enough to where you cannot focus and relax. She is not relaxing at all. It seems more like she’s intentionally trying to evoke reactions and is way out of place for meditation and sleep stories. Literally cannot stand it and so we’re missing out on so many of the options. For premium you’d think they could offer the option to swap readers for a lot more of them than you can.
The best
by dream 12344321 on 2019/04/19 13:45
Calm helps me control my temper. Let’s me relax more from all the work I have to do. I would recommend this to everyone I know.😄
Very wonderful and helpful
by ZombieApex on 2019/04/19 11:22
This app helped me through so much anxiety, I feel so open and clear now. This app is 10/10 amazing and deserves these 5 stars. 😍
7 day trial appears to be a scam
by fthiscompany on 2019/04/19 06:08
Signed up for seven day trial. Was only able to access one day. The following day I could not access anything without signing up for a contract with this company. Disappointed!

One star review
by mow zow ka zow on 2019/04/19 04:13
I am not a big fan of this app calm because you can’t use anything in less you pay $63 so I don’t know if I should use my money on something I don’t know what will happen. It seams like a good app but I’m not interested to pay $63 today.
5 stars
by NATE_12109 on 2019/04/19 04:11
This app helped me sleep better then ever and im 24 I now go to sleep in about 10 minutes I used to take about 1 hour for me to go to sleep
TRASH!
by Kyle024104 on 2019/04/19 02:59
This app literally couldn’t of been any worse they wanted to get money as best as they could and all the choices I have contain somebody talking in them. Your better off on youtube. Embarassing. JOKE OF AN APP.
Inner peace

Hii How Do I Get Help From Calm Please ?
Calm
by avacooper14# STARBUCKS on 2019/04/18 17:10
Calm is the best app for if you are stressed out about taking a test, something for your job, a big project for work or whatever it is a good app. Buy it! 👍🏼
Changed my mental health
by KateStephens on 2019/04/18 15:21
I’ve tried meditation before. This app worked for me though. I currently am on a 71 day streak and my panic attacks have seemingly gone away. I love this app so much I have been gifting year subscriptions to anyone interested.
Love love love
by Lyricyea16 on 2019/04/18 15:16
If you use this app you definitely will be relieved of any extra anxiety and open another part of your brain that never existed. Love the voices
Such a gift
by McCoy1906 on 2019/04/18 15:15
This app has been such a gift to my life! I was feeling “off” and spiritually depleted for quite some time (over a year). I knew I needed something, then stumbled on an article about guided mindful meditation and apps. I looked at a few apps, but was drawn to this app because of its ease of use, rich features, and seemingly endless content. Since starting with the app, I feel more at peace, centered, and like my old self. The daily mediations and featured meditations give me real and immediate tools I can use to quickly draw myself back to a place of peace when thoughts/experiences attempt to off-center me.
Disappointed in v4.7
by McK2012 on 2019/04/18 10:15
I switched to Calm from another app in early 2019 as I found the guidance and the overall experience more helpful as someone new to meditation. One of my favorite features was being able to share the image at the end of the meditation to a DayOne journal as a way to remember and reflect on specific lessons. As a visual learner, easily capturing the image and jotting down a few notes was helpful in my learning. That image is no longer available when I try to share it with my DayOne journal in v4.7. I've looked through settings and it's not an option. I can capture the image by pretending to text the meditation to myself and copying the image. But that makes it a 5 step process which used to be available in 1 step. This disrupts the learning for me. It would be helpful if I could again bring the image along with the link to the meditation when I share to any app.
Love this app but needs improvements
by kaylaberg123 on 2019/04/18 08:08
I’ve been using this app every night for a week now and I will say that when it comes to the story section, majority of the people they have reading those stories don’t really have a soothing, soft voice to help put you to sleep and I’ve seen others complain about that feature also so hopefully they can make some changes. I love the nature sounds like rain and campfire especially since I can set a timer and they will continue to play even when I exit the app! Another thing I love is the lullaby section but I’m so disappointed that there’s only 4 to choose from and the only one that puts me to bed/makes me tired is lullaby to the stars. PLEASE add more lullabies that are softer and mellow like lullaby to the stars but please more lullabies would be amazing!!! Overall the app is good but considering I paid for the premium I just wish there were more sounds to choose from
Enough with the stupid voices!!!! Aggravating
by JeanmarieTodd on 2019/04/18 07:17
Adult sleep stories? Are you KIDDING ME?!!! Just give me the quiet music, please, without synthesizers or icky effects. Adults don't want bedtime stories! We want quiet, repetitive, gentle white noise-type music. I do not need two dozen bedtime stories. I don't need any. I just want options for nice, quiet music and birds singing all night. Don't waste money signing up Stephen Fry or Matthew McConnaghey to read me stories. Just nature sounds and quiet music, please!
Calm

I think calm helps my kids get their rest they need.
Disappointed😳🤯😠
by TealNavy on 2019/04/18 03:06
I was so excited to meditate and relax and just be calm where ever.... until that is when I saw that you had to pay 70 DOLLARS. Downloading this app was a waste of my time, excitement, and storage. I don’t recommend but, do as you please.
Amazing
by i suggest! on 2019/04/18 02:51
This app is amazing I fall asleep very fast while listening to the story’s and stuff it has made me gain a night routine and if I can’t sleep then I use this app and fall asleep very fast! I suggest this app!
Misleading
by Aim52 on 2019/04/18 02:50
I thought this app was Free?! Ya, it’s free for 7 days, then it goes to $69.99?! Holy Cow!!

Wonderful
by ESL4658 on 2019/04/18 02:17
Love this for multiple reasons.
It doesn’t have what I am looking for
by jnorman90 on 2019/04/18 02:10
I just wanted basic soothing sounds, it does have music and stories, but I’m not really interested in those. Does this offer just sounds?
Great app
by KJ3R3MY on 2019/04/18 01:33
I love falling asleep to the sleep stories and meditations. The only thing I don’t like is that it interferes with my alarm in the morning and JOLTS me awake. Maybe a built in alarm, with fade-in for a gentle wakeup, in the future? Thanks for aiding in my sleep Calm!!
Love this app
by dragogurl on 2019/04/18 00:38
My daughters and I love the calm app, especially the sleep stories. My daughter would like to request more sleep stories about dragons!
Love it
by MrsFitts on 2019/04/17 23:40
Some suggestions for an otherwise great app...a delay start option, I keep my phone not directly next to the bed so by the time I hit play and get in bed and get settled I have missed the first minute of the story. A repeat option, would love to be able to repeat a story either once or multiple times during the night. Great app and love that there are new stories weekly!
Amazing for Education
by cosmo22 on 2019/04/17 23:03
As I teacher I use this app with my students. It's a great way to teach mindfulness and allow my students time to process information. I've also seen students self regulate from things we've done from this app. Thank you for allowing teachers to have full access.
Never thought I would enjoy meditating...
by Shippy! on 2019/04/17 22:38
Or thought I would get so much out of it, but I do! The benefits are clear and I really enjoy the variety of sessions/topics offered. Fantastic app!
“Stress release”
by younginn3 on 2019/04/17 18:38
Was excited to try this calming app to help me with anxeity, stress, sleep and so on. Come to find out, this app only allows you to try one of their options for free, and if you try anything else they have you get a 7 day free trial then they charge you a whopping 69.99 after. For a “stress relieving” app, your pretty stressful. Greed is why so many people are still dealing with their mental issues.
Boredom
by Getteggb on 2019/04/17 17:08
This just what I needed to hear and I almost stopped the guided meditation until she said what I was thinking. I was about to side step the problem I was facing instead of moving through it. Brilliant!
Absolutely Love!
by mcn1130 on 2019/04/17 13:12
There are so many different ways to use calm. As a classroom teacher I have started using meditations with my students and playing the music while we work. I would love for some more content in the age specific sections. Perhaps some meditations clad are between 5-8 minutes? The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was simply because I want more! Thank you.
You have to pay subscriptions just to use this app!
by jamsal07 on 2019/04/17 12:36
This app is great but I’m so annoyed that recently they locked like all the music and the meditations, now you can’t listen to any background music for free and most meditations you have to pay. It’s ridiculous you shouldn’t have to pay to meditate! I don’t think I’m going to use this app anymore unless they open some of their meditations for free users! Insight Timer is so much better!
Life changing
by bgschubert on 2019/04/12 14:43
I used to use Headspace for meditation (which is a fine app - especially if you’re just getting started) but Calm has helped me take things to a whole other level. The Headspace meditations were essentially all the same - there are maybe four variations but he cycles through those four and you get the same mix regardless of what series you’re working on (stress, anxiety, work performance, etc). I feel like the Calm meditations go much deeper and I’m noticing a huge difference in myself after switching over to Calm. Historically, I’m somewhat self critical and I have a higher than normal baseline for general anxiety (although I wouldn’t say that I have an anxiety disorder by any means). At times, these things make me impulsive or reactive in certain ways that I don’t like. I feel like I’m much more self aware after switching to Calm and I’m able to identify when I’m experiencing certain feelings and deal with them in a healthy way. Aside from that, I’m much more enthusiastic about my meditation practice and I’m meditating more often since I learn new skills every day rather than sitting through the same old boring meditation. Calm gives you a toolbox with multiple different tools that you can use in various situations. I love it and highly recommend it to anyone.
Believe the hype
by Gallery Hopping NYC on 2018/10/30 13:09
Need help with a guided meditation to help clear and calm your mind? I use CALM daily in my mindful journey. I’ve developed techniques that help me combat a busy and destructive mind and I continuing to learn how to balance my thoughts. I’m learning how to harness my own energy to create a balance and flow. Meditation isn’t about shutting down the mind or silencing thoughts. Meditation isn’t even about saying “I can’t do it because I can’t sit still and I’m always thinking of something”. Our minds are naturally busy so are the thoughts that come in and out. Meditation helps me to non judgmentally acknowledge those thoughts then release them so they are not the forefront of my existence. We can’t properly unpack each thought to deal with them accordingly with clarity and focus if our entire system is overloaded. My quest for peace, balance, clarity, focus and being present continues, and CALM is part of that journey. 🧘🏾‍♀️ 🕉 to enhance your experience, you can customize sounds that will help you create the right ambience. This feature is important to me because I am in a busy city so you can hear everything all the time. Also, their free services offer a vast variety of techniques so don’t be discouraged by the price. There are plenty of great free option in the app.
When medication can’t cure everything
by Kirstttttyeah on 2018/12/09 02:43
This app is a life saver... I’m on two different medications for my anxiety, depression, PTSD and more. There are days where I’m completely happy with the effects of my medications and then there are days where I feel like I’ve back peddled and don’t know what I’m doing. Calm is the best app for my worst of days. I use their “breath” function weekly- and their nature sounds every single night all night long. it helps me go to sleep because sleep is a huge problem for me. The best part is you can lock your phone and it’ll keep going! The free meditations are amazing and the best part is that they remain free... it doesn’t automatically go away after trial. You do have other options to buy more- but you don’t have too. You can benefit from the free version which really leads me to believe that the makers of this app are really in this to help people like me. I will eventually buy the full version- but right now it’s not in budget. This app is a staple for me and my mental health. It’s a huge part of my healing process and my calming down processes after anxiety attacks that happen almost daily. Thank you, calm designers for bringing me something I can rely on. ❤️
Free features aren’t bad, but a few issues.
by Alice Valkyrie on 2019/01/31 19:34
I recently re-downloaded this app and like the free features (when I downloaded it years ago one of my favorite features was “Scenes,” so as long as I have access to those for free, this app will stay on my phone). However, it’s a bit annoying that I now have a “Daily Calm Perception” notification on my screen that is locked and that I can’t remove. I don’t purchase app subscriptions, though I would be more than willing to support this app by individually buying content I was interested in as one-time purchases). If you don’t plan on allowing users to buy content separately, can you please at least give us the option to only view non-subscription content if we wish (with no content we can’t access clogging up the screen)? I read another review stating that some of the music was available to non-subscribers. It all appears locked for me. Can you clarify please? Also, are all 7 days for any of the meditations unlocked for free users? I just listened to the first day of “7 Days of Calming Anxiety” but I don’t think I can listen to the second one (or even repeat day one w/o subscribing, which is a bit ridiculous IMO). Please consider alternative payment models in the future. I’d love to support the app, just not with a subscription.
Love This App!
by Gabbyellen on 2019/01/20 22:13
I am a lifelong insomniac. I spend most nights staring at the ceiling for an hour or more before I fall asleep if I do at all. This app has helped so much in getting myself into "sleep mode" and calming down & stopping my brain from rewinding the day or cycling through the next day's schedule. I occasionally listen to music but I mostly stick to the readings. My only request is to get Matthew McConaughey to do more readings! I have tried listening to others and they just don't work. I'd say my biggest complaint is they are all reading as though they are reading to an audience that's awake and aware. They are either too loud (even on the lowest setting) or reading with too much inflection which excites one rather than lulling one to sleep. MM knew his audience and his reading is in a very soft tone, his voice is calming and relaxing and he also seems to lower his voice as the story goes on, barely above a whisper by the end. All in all his is the perfect presentation and the only one I can fall asleep to! So please keep this story in rotation and if you can convince him to do more, please do! Otherwise I am content listening to the same story night after night.
I need Daily Calm every day
by Emmie Eaton on 2018/11/06 16:03
Ever since I tried the free version of Daily Calm I knew it was exactly what I needed. I have used the premium subscription for a year now and Calm has more than met my expectations but exceeded them by far. Every morning I am in guided meditation with Tamara and then I do the gentle morning wake up stretches which have made a huge difference in the pain I used to have from my back issues. I do the chair stretches at work and the back care exercises when my lower back is hurting. I also listen to the sleep stories every night and fall asleep before half the story is over. These stories are so soothing and relaxing. And there are so many different stories and meditations to choose from. I can’t wait to delve into the talks given by experts regarding mindfulness and breaking bad habits, etc. I just wish I had more time to spend on Calm because I enjoy it so much. It has been worth every penny and i just renewed my subscription. Daily Calm is exactly what I need on a daily and nightly basis. I absolutely love it and look forward to another year with these wonderful people in this amazing app.
21days of Calm ... and so much more
by Opiewanobie on 2019/03/07 15:11
Do you experience any stress in your life? Or, perhaps your life is spinning out of control. Or, if not, you may find yourself somewhere in between. The Calm app does not solve life‘s problems but it does help reframe them to give us a better way of living with and living through our problems. One of the greatest features is the Daily Calm which is a 10+ minute meditation. This does not mean zoning out to some strange mantra and pursuing another mystical realm! Instead, the user is guided through various styles of mindfulness. At the conclusion, guidance is given on how to approach life or reframe our issues in order to better live life rather than life dominating you. If you do choose to subscribe, there are probably hundreds of targeted series (and growing)-/ everything from sleeping better to dealing with relationships with others, dealing with loss and even dealing with yourself. Using this app consistently (I use it frequently, not daily—I sometimes forget or get caught up in my business!) will surely help you not control your life but learn to not be controlled by your life.
Daily sessions to look forward to
by Furrilius on 2017/11/29 02:21
I never knew much about meditation until a mentor introduced me to the practice. It is exactly that, a practice. I found it difficult at first to stay focused but found that it came more easily the more I did it. I became hooked and noticed the positive impact it had on all aspects of my busy, hectic life. I knew I wanted to continue guided meditation and my mentor recommend finding an app that I liked. After trying free-trials of several apps I knew hands down this was the one for me. The selection of background sounds, and her soothing voice were exactly what I was looking for. The length of sessions are sufficient to fully relax and recharge yet not too cumbersome to fit into a busy schedule. I come to look forward to the sessions at the end of each day as my “me time.” I like that there are pre-programmed sessions aimed at specific topics or goals and there are daily sessions as well. The fact that the app keeps track of my progress helps to keep me motivated to never skip a day. I can’t say enough good things about this app, well worth every penny!! I am hooked.
Great, but limited content, needs more
by bioeric on 2018/11/25 08:17
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.
Amazing but....
by Avasherry234 on 2019/02/09 13:03
Okay, I will be honest this app is so relaxing. At first, I thought that it would be some kind of boring app that wouldn’t have any use— well I was wrong. This app is so good. There are different types of meditations that you can do for seven days, sleep stories that will make you fall asleep, classical music, relaxing backgrounds that you can change anytime, yoga lessons, and to just breath normally. I started about a week ago, and I have been so relaxed after that. I don’t get as mad when my lil sis hides in my room and steals things, I don’t get as frustrated when my parents ask me to do double chores with no extra allowance. But there is something that I will have to point out before you download this app— most of the things are NOT free! Most sleep stories are not free, most meditation thingies are not free (you can only have one sample then every other day is locked, ask of the relaxing music costs money, it is the same for the yoga. You need to buy a year’s worth of unlimited pro, month, or week. To me it is kind of unfair, but they still allow a few sleep stories and I can get relaxed even without the pro needed.
Sunshine
by Pagdbdndksklakandb on 2017/11/21 13:43
I am loving Calm. It is perfect for where I am right now. I love the 10 minute daily calm. I look forward to the new topic each day and 10 minutes is a very manageable amount of time even in my busy schedule. I am working through the 21 day beginning meditation series as well. I like that I can do the daily calm each day and then add a 10 minute beginning session when I have time. Tamara’s voice I find very pleasant and reassuring. I like being able to choose some soothing background sound like birds chirping or fire crackling. And finally I am enjoying the sleep stories and find they are helping me fall asleep more quickly in the evenings. The only negative is I’m not too fond of the music selections. I find most of the music to be somewhat jarring and irritating rather than soothing. I would love if some peaceful soothing music were added as options. So right now I just don’t listen to the music. Overall, this app has been fantastic for helping me learn to quiet my mind and stop destructive thought loops. I am definitely feeling calmer and more present than ever before.
More narrators please
by Dia diamonde on 2019/03/18 10:39
This app has been incredibly helpful for me; the focused texts are simple enough to be absorbable / not distracting in a state of meditation, when you need it most. The 7 days series is excellent. The texts themselves are poignant with the exception of some cultural references Ive heard (honestly, I don’t think this is any place to mention what Amanda Palmer from Dresden Dolls thinks) - trying way too hard with that. My main issue which has kept me from being able to use about 50% of the guided meditations, including Daily Calm and most other practices, is that I just can not bear the speaking voice of Tamara Levitt. I’ve tried & tried and i just can’t. It it is probably just me but she really rubs me the wrong way in how mushy and drippy her voice is...it comes across as disingenuous but I realize that the intention is exactly the opposite. It would be really nice to have at least one other choice for each program - ideally the other one would be more neutral. It’s a pity because I like the content very much, but otherwise, with no adjustments of added narrators it will probably keep me from renewing my subscription.
Worth every penny
by Mrs zamayoa on 2018/05/18 00:44
It almost seems like everyone in the world has anxiety and depression nowadays. I do t want another problem like addiction to drugs so I was endlessly in search of alternative help. I just want to be more in control of my emotions. Hormones play a big part in my emotions. An instance that makes me furious, sad, depressed, hopeless, and aggravated one day could be the same instance on another day and it wouldn’t bother me a bit. Due to my fluctuations in emotions due to hormone changes I didn’t want to take pill(s) daily. So I stumbled across this app and gave it a try. NEVER LOOKED BACK. It’s wonderful for stopping me in my tracks and calming me down. But you do it often and the lessons follow in your life. I love love love the coach’s voice. I am a private person and don’t share my feelings which is helpful to some, but I don’t need to when I practice with the help of this app. You can choose how much time you want to spend. A lot or a little. There’s even an “emergency calm” selection, I haven’t used but am saving it for when I need that best friend to say “everything is going to be ok!”
Thankful and learning each day to be Calm
by Seashell60 on 2017/08/26 05:54
My doctor had shared with me about the benefits of meditation.... I needed something to help when I was anxious as well something to help me relax. Shortly after that doctor visit I found the Calm app. It's been almost 2 years. It had been a stressful day and there was an introduction to the app and I took the 10 minutes and did the breathing and really focused on relaxing. I went back to work and I immediately told everyone about Calm.... I have been using it ever since! The time I meditate is my time to focus, to breathe and to just be in the moment. I had horrible insomnia and started the body scans... I tried the sessions without buying the subscription but soon found that I wanted more of the sessions after I did the first; so I bought the subscription and have never regretted it once! It's been a godsend. I love the bedtime stories and the daily Calm.... there is so much on this app that has helped me. I love that the app is adding new things. Thank you Tamara for sharing and helping me bring peace and calm into my life!
I can't rate this app highly enough!
by Valholla03 on 2017/09/01 02:33
1st off, I TRULY appreciate the app giving me time to try its features before asking for an App Store review. I absolutely HATE when you've used an app for all of 5 minutes and then it asks you to rate it. Absolutely awful, how would I really know? This app gave me the time to explore it and use it for a good week before asking for a review. Bravo! As far as the app itself, by session 7, I REALLY zoned out into the meditation and almost put myself to sleep I was so calm. I remember when I first began I was anxious to check when I would be done. But by the end of the week, I was surprised we were done already. I'm excited about that. The music is calming, the guidance is very calming and helpful. And it's very easy to use and I love the reminder and quotes at the end. Again, I can't rate this app highly enough. I hasn't even asked me to upgrade to the paid version yet so I don't know how much it costs to continue meditating but I sure hope I can afford it. They deserve being compensated for the labor of this app!
I love this app!
by jenna11d4 on 2017/08/27 13:58
I struggle with anxiety and insomnia. I've meditated on and off for years and felt better but recently had lost interest in my usual mantra meditations. I'd been thinking mindfulness would be good to try but couldn't quite get myself to spend hundreds of dollars for official classes. A friend told me about Calm and I decided to try it. I was surprised by the high quality of the instruction. It's like having a guru, therapist, and wise friend all in one. After a week I decided to pay for the full version. Incredible value for money. I've meditated every day for two months and been able to bring mindfulness to many areas of my life - my job, eating habits, and social interactions. Those are all still a work in progress but becoming more aware of how my anxiety affects me in those settings is a huge first step. I also love the sleep stories and music. I love knowing that if I wake up in the middle of the night I have this great tool to help me break the gerbil wheel of worrying thoughts and fall back to sleep.
Great Tool as a Baby Step Towards True Mental Strengthening
by Job goer on 2018/11/07 12:08
Calm has a good selection of soothing background audios to ensure an environment conducive for stabilizing the mind. The reminders help those that struggle with maintaining a regular regimen of taking time out for mindfulness. Getting them to stop doesn’t always work, but maybe that is part of the point. The free edition has sufficient features for anyone curious about experiencing mindfulness, yet the add-ons are probably not a necessary. “Mindfulness” in itself has become a buzz word apparently coined by amateurs, and practices have mixed and matched true authentic, effective techniques to make for better marketing and adoption. So if you subscribe to the guided features, you won’t realize the true benefits of what mindfulness is after. Yet, the tool is excellent for helping you achieve a rhythm with some reminders if you have a real authentic mindfulness coach that knows more than just theory (and amateur practice) but has achieved mystic capabilities through mastery of the authentic techniques.
You need this!
by Wildhoney1214 on 2018/04/26 20:18
Two days ago, I ran into a specialists office panicking over clogged ears. Stupid, right? That’s how anxious, panicky people are. We think we are dying all the time. Went to bed with clogged ears and anxious. I was hoping a good sleep would calm me down enough for the next day. Nope. Woke up more anxious than normal with those clogged ears. While driving to work, I had a sudden urge to go to the ER and beg for anything to calm me down. I am one of those people who does not want medication, but I was desperate. I saw Calm on a commercial last night and didn’t think it would benefit because I was in bad shape. I tried the free version and it was ok, but i wanted more and I’m glad I did. I did the first day of 7 days of calm today and it helped me immensely. I no longer felt like jumping out of my skin and i got some relief. Every now and then, I feel a little anxious but I can now calm myself down and get back to work. And this is just day one. For those who are suffering greatly, keep and open mind and try this.
Very Satisfied
by Love Them Cards on 2019/01/26 18:07
I had been wanting to start meditating and wasn’t sure where to begin. While telling a friend this, she told me her holistic physician had suggested that she try the Calm App. I downloaded the app and began my Journey with Calm. It was a stressful time in my life. I wasn’t sleeping well and my thoughts were going so fast through my head. I used the sleep stories in those nights I had a hard time falling asleep or when I’d wake up and couldn’t go back to sleep. The sleep stories were very helpful. I also started meditating 10 minutes a day. There are a wide variety of meditations even on the free version. The app also helps keep you informed on how often you are using the App. There are specialists in different fields that do informative series. I could see how I was using my skills that the App taught me to help keep myself calm and present through the day, so I subscribed for the year. This opened up even more features. You have nothing to loose by trying Calm and everything to gain.
Very poor performance
by Caw- on 2018/03/30 16:34
I’ve had this app for about 2 months and absolutely loved it until recently. When I purchased it something happened and they charged me twice for the app. There wasn’t a way to contact them so I asked my credit card company to reverse the charges and they did. Coincidentally at almost the exact time that the charge was reversed my app started performing horribly - it started killing my battery, literally to zero, after only playing 1 story. For example, reviewing the battery usage indicator on my iPhone 10 says I’ve used the app for 1 hour and used over 80% of my battery. I have restarted my phone numerous times, loaded all the Calm updates, and have reported the issue to them via their help center. I don’t believe in coincidences - I haven’t seen any reviews here that indicate this is an issue with anyone else. This app developer must be a rouge programmer in his/her garage - scary stuff. I’m going to get another refund if this performance problem doesn’t magically disappear. And then I’m going to develop an app just like this to sell for a much cheaper price and compete with this product. Shame on the price they charge for this app - that I have read in the reviews.
Progress is slow but I am enjoying the steps along the path
by Gizzerella on 2017/09/19 04:03
After a year of nothing but stress, I felt that I needed a way to take control back and give myself some peace of mind, calm and some sleep. I tried the free version for a few weeks and loved it, so I went ahead and purchased it, and haven't looked back. I usually do the daily meditation in the morning and one of the program meditations at night, followed by a sleep story. While I still feel that I am not sure I am any better at meditating, I do feel more at peace and calmer. I do wish for 2 things for this app: 1, that they tell you or give you an idea of what to do with your mind's eye once you close your eyes. For me, it is worse than my thoughts. But my husband and I came up with 2 different "views" (i.e. a meadow near a brook with dandelions to put my thoughts on and "blow" them away during my next breath - the visual of seeing them float away helps put them to rest). Now that I can focus on that I can focus easier on the breath. And the 2nd thing I wish this app offered was a dairy of some sort. At the end of each session, you ask how it was, but I want to also comment on how I was - was I distracted, or did I feel that I improved. Being able to see the progress helps the progress along. It also would be a good thing to look back over and see if certain lessons need to be re-explored. But even without those, I think the app is great and have enjoyed using it.
Disappointed
by Nuffareddy on 2018/03/05 18:18
This is probably a wonderful app if you have the money for it. But I haven’t been able to figure out whether it would be worth the money, and now that they have pulled a sneaky trick I probably won’t. I had been trying it out while deciding whether to buy in and pay for “Premium.” I have liked the limited parts of the app I have been able to access, but was hesitating because the app is kind of expensive for me. Unfortunately, when the app was updated they locked some of the aspects that were previously open. This doesn’t seem to be in the spirit of the intention of the app. If it’s purpose is to bring more “calm” to the world, why would they do something so frustrating? There are other meditation apps out there, so I guess I’ll keep looking. PS - After going back and looking at the reviews, I can see that this one review probably isn’t going to be noticed by anyone. There are only a few negative reviews, and like mine, they are mostly complaining about the high cost and the general ethos behind offering such an app at such a cost. Apparently this is a great app if you have the money for it, and there are a whole lot five-star reviewers who can afford it.
First time for everything
by Mc:x on 2018/05/04 17:45
I've never been able to actually relax enough to meditate. Today, I didn't quit before giving it a true try. I experienced a sense of connection to life. A sweet calmness relaxed my heart rate and my muscles as well as my thinking. I'm a believer in Jesus as the one savior. The entire bible is knit together too perfectly for it to have been a hoax. For the reason of being a Christian, I thought that true meditation would conflict. I believed that if one opened their mind to relaxation then it would allow for evil thoughts to sneak in. This is NOT what I experienced. I simply continued to know my lord, and savior as I worked to relieve my self of the stress in my life. Therefore, allowing for meditation and Christianity to work as a powerful force to release the power of stress in my life. A way to look at my life one moment at a time. No overwhelming thoughts were given the power to ruin my moment, hours or day... I feel at peace and confident that God is ultimately in control!
Find Peace with Calm
by Gossamer8 on 2018/05/14 15:23
The variety of meditation options in Calm means you will never be lost for a session regardless of why you’re seeking out a calming meditative escape. Pause your busy day and busy mind with everything from simple, low guidance sessions, set for the time you want and have available, or take a guided course that assists you with addressing an area of concern, like anxiety, depression, or just building resilience and gratitude skills. Calm now has masterclasses (which I intend to try soon!), meditations geared towards kids, and even bedtime stories, for those of us whose busy minds need a calm voice to lull us to sleep still. The calming bedtime sessions have helped me on numerous evenings when I thought I was going to be up way past my bedtime with insomnia. Instead, I quietly listened to someone reading a story, with tranquil ambient sounds, and was asleep minutes later. Give Calm a try, you have nothing to lose! The paid content is definitely worth the subscription price!
Great way to meditate in any manner and at all levels.

I started meditating a over 2 years ago and went looking for an app to help shortly thereafter. The beginner guided sessions have walked me through the basics and getting better sleep. The deeper guided sessions start at 3 minutes and work up from there in great easy, workable increments. The daily Calm meditations are wonderful - all about 10 minutes long and give a bump to the variety of meditation available. The timed, unguided sessions are great once you know what you want to focus on. Sleep Stories include fiction and non-fiction read by a wide variety of people. There are tales in, what are to me, second languages, and they are amazing too! There's also music and ambient sounds with music. The most recent addition is 'Music' - this has 'Focus', 'Calm/Relax', 'Deep Sleep' and they seem to be different tones and patterns/wavelengths to help with those activities. I haven't used them much, but it's safe to say, this app is simply wonderful.
Male guided meditation? ❤️ the add of Music.
by M. Anthony on 2017/10/26 01:22
❤️ the music! Especially Michael Denny's Invigorate under the Relax heading. Wish the visual background was 'live' i.e. moved IRT like Scenes do. (Sidenote: can't wait to VR this app up when that day comes.) Noticed I have used guided meditations less and less over the years of my sub. Which overall I do think is still a great value. But maybe switch it up and throw a dude on the track. Nothing against the female guides (assuming they are actual humans and not very good robot voices haha), but I wouldn't mind the variety. I can't be the only one to feel this way. Or are there male guided sessions somewhere in here that I just haven't found? Idk. I'm looking for something between Eckhart Tolle and a late night Pillow Talk FM-type DJ. Feel me? Not all the app feature updates are winners but I appreciate that the Calm team keeps trying to refine and improve. Makes it feel very much worth the price of subscription. PS- wrote this while lying in a clay ball sauna. 🤙
I almost love this 100% but...
by Flyte99 on 2018/11/12 23:16
When I downloaded this app I was delighted at the surprising approach to relaxing at bedtime: Sleep stories for adults! Genius! At first I thought the idea was silly but was sold after a couple evenings of stories. I subscribed for the year. I was really looking forward to the Daily Calm, too. Stories with wonderful readers like Anna Acton and Stephen Fry are pure heaven. Sadly, it’s Tamara Levitt’s voice that made me cancel my subscription. I feel awful saying this but it’s true. What is perhaps an attempt to sound soothing comes across as phony affectation. It’s grating. As a result I can’t listen to the Daily Calm. When my partner chose a story read by her one evening he and I were just minutes in before he asked for one read by someone else (without me having expressed my opinion about her tone of voice). This is a solid app. If the content she curates is read by others, however, it would be a GREAT app. I would happily resubscribe if the readers and voices at Calm were less Tamara and more varied.
Excellent app worth every cent
by Love making lists on 2019/02/15 03:39
I was a little skeptical when I saw this app but when I read it was the 2017 app of the year I gave it a try. That said, I was too cheap to pay for the full app for nearly a year. Since that time, Calm has really improved my life. The focused meditations are great for different concerns (self esteem, focus, anxiety, etc.), the background music/ambient noise immediately relaxes my mind, the daily calm sessions are interesting and motivational, and the sleep stories are great. I have not yet tried the calm body series but it is on my list. The only reason I’m not rating this 5 stars is that I wish there were more sleep stories (there are already a lot but new ones would be good) and that they were longer. A lot are only 10-15 minutes. I definitely feel calmer overall in my daily life and I find myself not getting as frustrated or angry as I used to. I am also falling asleep more easily and waking up earlier. Definitely worthy of the price! Best app I’ve ever downloaded.
This app locked me out after paying!
by Core104 on 2018/10/12 17:44
After trying this app for a few days, I was in a moment of stress and signed up for the 7-day free trial early this morning. After I agreed to have $60 charged in the App Store after the free trial, the Calm app did not unlock its content for me. I quit the app and tried again. No success. I went to manage by subscription and hit “restore” within the app, but it said “no account found.” I then logged out and tried to long in again— but the app wouldn’t let me log in, saying “bad gateway”. I then tried to change my password, but I got an error message saying “there is a problem resetting your password.” I deleted the app and reinstalled it from App Store. Again no luck logging in— even though the App Store says I have a free trial and I’ll be charged $60 after 7 days. Great. I can’t even access the app to cancel this recurring subscription. Their website doesn’t work and I can’t contact them. I will have to take this up with my credit card company. The Calm developers are CROOKS and SCAMMED me out of money. I wanted to use it to get back to sleep, but it’s made me anything but calm! STAY AWAY and choose a different app!!!!
Calm app has helped to change my life
by L@nZ on 2017/09/22 16:13
[September update: I still use this app on a daily basis, including the new Sleep stories and music. I can't recommend this app highly enough. It is making a big impact in my life and my ability to deal with changes in our country and politics.] I highly recommend the Calm App, especially the basic subscription model. After learning meditation basics from the free versions, I realized that I needed more and subscribed more than a year ago. The Daily Calm meditation, each on a different but related theme, makes it possible to practice on a daily basis. The meditation leader presents lovely thoughtful meditations, with an appropriate quotation. There are numerous meditations focused on different issues such as anxiety, compassion, and loving kindness. The lovely images and sounds furnish calming and focusing backgrounds. The new sleep stories module has really helped with my middle of the night insomnia. I highly recommend the Calm App.
Just awesome!
by KathyLynn520 on 2017/12/11 03:45
I struggle with anxiety and depression, plus the related insomnia. My doctors have all recommended meditation but I couldn’t ever figure out how to do it. The guidance on this app, however, finally made the connection for me. I’ve learned how to quiet my mind without additional medication. Not saying all my problems are gone - just that I have a new tool to help me cope. And the sleep stories are the best! Anytime the brain won’t let me sleep, I turn a sleep story on. It engages my mind enough to distract it from the litany of worries, stresses, and reminders of middle school embarrassments. I love the wide variety of narrators and subject matter. One other thing... when I began looking for a meditation app, I really wanted to avoid any that promoted specific spiritual or religious practices. I haven’t come across anything like that in Calm. I can fold these meditations into my own beliefs/traditions without feeling stressed that they’re in conflict with one another.
Seeing improvement
by Z Taalib Bey on 2017/09/15 18:43
I am using a variety of tools to assist with my personal growth and development. I have my work cut out for me. I've had this wonderful app for a couple of weeks. I started with the sleep stories and at first I couldn't do it every night. There was almost a week between the first and second time. Last night there was only a day between, and only a day between the one before that. I know that may sound insignificant but for me that is HUGE. I'm committed to doing the sleep every day, even when I work at night and I'm actually sleeping during the day. I am feeling the improvement in the quality of my sleep. Today I will also try the breathing and focus. I tend not to rate apps, but for some reason I'm feeling compelled to with this one even though I haven't been using it long. I'm pretty sure I'll be back with periodic updates. Btw, I gave 4 stars (vs 5) to leave room for improvement.💜
This is worth it!
by MC's MacBook Air on 2018/04/22 15:17
I struggled with horrible PTSD symptoms for years now. It was difficult to apply mindfulness to my everyday routine until I found this app. It has greatly reduced my physical and mental symptoms by allowing me to become aware, ride the waves and let go of emotion. I’m not going to say it’s a cure because there is no such thing. I view it as a tool to maintain your mental fitness like a treadmill and exercise helps maintain your physical fitness. Gradually over time your mind becomes stronger and more capable but mindfulness like physical exercise should become part of your routine so you can keep optimum mental fitness. Also, I was on medication and no longer require it yet it doesn’t mean anyone should stop taking their medication. I suggest to start doing mindfulness and as you progress there may be a reduction to your prescription and eventually you may be able to come off of them. Hope this is helpful! God bless!
One of the best
by Emdiam on 2017/10/31 03:43
I’m rarely the type to review an app and I’m even less likely to purchase the full version of an app — in the case of this app, I’ve done both which should really be a testament to how much I truly appreciate this app and all its features. After long bout with insomnia and unable to “shut down” my brain at night I downloaded this app and used the free features for a couple of weeks. The sleep stories lulled me to sleep and I was able to meditate after some intense anxiety. I finally purchased the full version and am so glad I did. No matter my mood or my goal (sleep, focus, or lessen anxiety) it has something for me and there’s so much content I never feel like it’s not worth it. I love the voice overs and guided meditations don’t feel forced. I’m brand new to this and I can see myself feeling better the more I use it. I look forward to it every night. A huge thanks to the makers of this app.
What a great and useful App!
by luckybucky32 on 2018/04/30 13:02
Mind you, you can’t unlock all the features right away, or unless you pay or happen to have a ton of time on your hands, but this app was my favorite download of the year. You can meditate, listen to calming sessions, or music, and even choose your own scenes/background, which not only have accompanied sound, but also videos of corresponding scenes of nature and whatnot. My favorites are Pouring Rain, Tropical Beach, Passing Clouds, Coastline at Sunset, Foggy Steam, Thunderstorm, Evening Crickets, and Summer Meadow. They even have ones like; Fireplace, Zen Ocean, Falling Raindrops, Rhythmic Waves, Woodland Lake, Plains of Wheat, Mystic Fountain and Mountain Lake. I know there’s more but I suggest checking out this seriously cool App! Along with the Sleep Stories, relaxing music, focus training, and meditation for beginners, stress, relationships, sleep, emotions, and so on...this App is what you need at the end of any type of day, what we all need is a little Calm!
helpful for sleep
by Sellsews on 2019/01/24 06:16
I have very much enjoyed this app as many of the stories are perfect for lulling you off to sleep. 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 extremely 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. I find the whispered stories super creepy… But that is just a personal opinion. With a few minor tweaks and more frequent content updates, this app could be exceptional.
Love it
by HoldingOut4Updates on 2018/01/08 23:24
I love this app so much, and cannot begin to tell you how much it has helped me. An addition that I would love to see is the ability to go back to a daily calm that one has missed. I tend to meditate at night before bed, but if that doesn't happen before midnight, or I miss my 24hr window, I lose that Daily Calm. Then I feel terrible that I've missed it for that day. For example, yesterday's was about Practice... I'm a classical musician, and practice is a necessary evil, however I didn't get to meditate until it was too late, and it was no longer accessible. Also, why not make the daily calm a part of a larger accessible archive for subscribers, so that one may focus on a particular issue that needs work or focus, vs just a small selection of a few daily calms. For the steep cost of the subscription, that would really make me very very happy. Thank you for considering my ideas.
Many insomnia triggers!
by Princiegall on 2019/02/28 17:34
Migraine, fibromyalgia, genetic anxiety...all contributors to my struggles with falling asleep. I don’t remember the first place I saw Calm advertised but it popped into my head about three weeks ago and has already done wonders. Right now I’m mainly using the Music category and selecting either Sleep which are very gentle music compositions or Soundscapes which are different sounds from nature. There is so much to choose from depending on your needs.....sleep, energy, meditation, putting a child to sleep, yoga background sounds.....I’ve only scratched the surface. What I have used has helped me focus on the sound instead of my pain or what I’m concerned about. I set it for 30 minutes and I fall to sleep before it’s over. Before this I was lying awake for 2-3 hours and sometimes more.....like all night long. I highly recommend this app to anyone who wants a little more peace in their life.
♡ SUGGESTIONS ♡
by sleepy amber on 2018/04/30 11:12
•allow a que: when i fall asleep, it’d be nice to align a que to automatically go from a sleep meditation practice, to a sleep story, to music without having to exit my trance to open my phone and do it myself. •add things to listen to during workouts: it would be awesome to have a breathing regimen to listen to with some upbeat simple background music. i would love to hear this calming voice guide me through breathing while i’m working out- maybe allow it to play over music we have playing in other apps if possible. simple upbeat “elevator” music would even be great. otherwise- this app grounds me, centers me, and makes me calm. i can actually appreciate the meditation programs, and don’t find them to be corny or tenuous. 100% worth the money for full access for a YEAR!! i love it, thank you creators for helping with my negative mindset. and i LOVE the voice, i hope you never change her!
Great but one minor change...
by Linzimrg13 on 2018/04/07 07:22
This app is amazing and helps me fall asleep very quickly, the voices are amazing and so is the scenery, pictures and music this app gives. I use the sleep story a lot at night and I really think you guys should unlock premium stories for a couple days because I am so use to hearing “The Waterfall,” “Blue and Gold,” and “The Secret Lagoon.” I am 100% not saying they are bad stories because they are amazing. I just wish I could choose from different stories every once in a while instead of hearing the same stories over and over again each night. I also wanted to speak about the pricing, it is a little too over priced, mind you, I’m only 15 and there would be no way I could ever pay that price without a card of some sort. I overall love the app, from the start the story to finish, this is absolutely one of the best sleep story and meditation app I have ever downloaded. 4 Stars since the pricing and locked stories.
Great app, but pricing is too much.
by Mikayla629 on 2018/03/08 07:04
I absolutely love this app. I have OCD and constantly struggle with anxiety. I’ve learned to deal with it better during the day, but at night, since I’m laying still, I have time to stop and think. Which turns into worrying and panic attacks. I usually take sleeping medicine for it, but then I started using the bedtime story part of the app, and it helped me to relax and fall asleep without having to take medication. Only thing is the pricing. I’m a college student and a part time nanny, and the pricing to unlock the full app is insane. I would love to continue to use the app since it’s helped me so much, but I only have to option of 3 stories to listen to, and it’s starting to drive me crazy I’ve heard them so much. Even though I love this app, I’m not using it anymore, and will probably delete it. If they could lower their prices to where more people have the option to use the full app, I think it could really flourish.
Way more helpful than expected - especially Masterclass
by cashinma on 2018/02/14 10:59
I bought this because I’m terrible at meditation and mindfulness. I needed something to keep me focused on my meditation. Initially, I struggled a bit with the voice of the person guiding the session, but once I got used to hearing her, it was much easier. Other people and other stories and classes sounded different. I use the daily calm almost every day. the lessons in the meditation so often are reinforcing what I’m learning and hearing in another part of my life. Very useful quotes at the end to remind me what the lesson was about. Often I will screenshot the quote and picture and share it with friends. I love the variety of sounds I can select and how there is a visual with each. I recently listened to the Breaking Bad Habits addiction class and really felt as though I was at a seminar for psychologists and neuroscientists. It was amazing what I learned. I have a daughter who is a neuroscience and psych major in college. I had to share it with her. I’ve also been stepping through the various meditations on self care, relationships, etc and those also have been enormously helpful. Sometimes my daughter can’t sleep so she listens to the stories on there. I love that there are classics mixed in with new ones I had never heard of. Best $60 bucks I’ve ever spent on an app like this. Thank you, Calm.
Can’t Believe It’s Worth It
by SnkTab on 2017/12/11 18:35
Never before believed in meditation. Downloaded Calm because I just wanted the nature sounds but ended up trying the 7 day free course. Amazing. Purchased a subscription right away. I can’t believe that I need this app. Expensive for my budget but it’s helped me so much on problems I never knew I had. I’m a digitally addicted recent father and it helped me through the previously mind-numbing chore of taking care of a 1yo. I was doing a good job but that didn’t mean I wasn’t screaming inside my head from boredom. It helped me be present rather than distracted because apparently I’m distracted by everything. Did not know this. Helped me not get upset over stupid things at work. Lessons my anxiety a little bit. Feature request, auto shut off. I’ve fallen asleep sometimes if at night and my phone died because app still running and my phone is my alarm.
Love the sleep stories- Updated
by Firefox9675 on 2018/01/10 08:19
Still love the app but wish they would add more sleep stories. Not meditations, not sleep music, but sleep stories. That is what helps me the most. I've emailed them twice to request more stories. The response has been that stories are added every week. But this is not true. It rotates between additions of sleep music, meditations and stories. So in truth, about one to two a month are added. If you have as big a problem as I do sleeping then the repitition of the same stories over and over becomes less effective. I've looked everywhere else for more stories but Calm is still the best for stories. I just wish they focused as much on the stories as they do on meditation. I have serious trouble sleeping, and the Calm sleep stories are a big help for me. I can listen to them and focus on the reader and my mind won't wander off like it always does to a million other things. Before I know it I'm asleep😊
Life changing
by crameranderson on 2019/02/01 04:42
This app has been really good for me. I’m a yoga guy so breathing focus was always kind of a forced thing. Tamara has taught me to be more relaxed with it and watch the natural changes. Then the silence where I wonder if my phone died but no she comes back..... for a guy whose mind is very hard to slow down she’s really helped me. The loving kindness and forgiveness practices are staples of mine. Just the 21 days of Calm meditations are so good that alone is worth the premium subscription. My wife and another female friend of ours thinks Tamara’s voice is annoying. I don’t. I think it’s soothing. I’m glad she doesn’t always introduce herself any more. That personalizing detracts from the meditation from the get go. She doesn’t need to advertise at the outset of a meditation. I would like to have other voices added to them but she is so very good I just hope she continues her good work. Thank you Tamara, you are truly amazing.
I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS BUT made sure to come and write a review on this one
by Moniiiiiiica on 2018/03/04 04:14
This app has changed my life. Her voice is so incredibly soothing and beautiful, there’s different time settings 2 mins 5 mins 10 minutes. My life is so insanely stressful and hectic the only thing keeping me sane are her breathing techniques. What I also love is she doesn’t talk about wacko weird topics, she gives beautiful life messages that you can carry with you through he day. I clicked the increase focus and it REALLY helped me stop the distractions that we’re wasting my time. I’ve had the app since Feb 9, today is March 3 and I have done over 4 hours of total meditation. I want to keep this app forever and worth every single penny I recommend this for EVERYONE to improve the quality of their life and to be able to decrease some of their stress. My body is at ease every time I finish a session whether it be 2 Mins or 20 mins
Well worth it
by alex212 on 2018/01/10 02:02
As someone that suffers from depression and anxiety, this app has worked wonders for me. I’d never given serious consideration to meditation, I always had it on my to do list, occasionally trying on my own for a few minutes. This app changed all that. After the first 12 minute meditation/lesson in anxiety at the end of a hectic and stressful day, the negative feelings melted right away. It also has soothing music for sleeping for when I’m suffering from insomnia, or even bedtime stories. Which makes me feel 6 years old saying, but feeling 6 for a little before bed is surprisingly awesome! It is pricey for an app subscription at $60 a year... but in my humble opinion, it’s well worth it if you suffer from anxiety like myself. That’s only $5 a month for some piece of mind. Have one less beer a month or save some other way, because this will be some of the best $60 you ever spent.
found calm and sleep!!!
by wccb14 on 2017/12/23 12:27
I never write reviews, but I have to share my positive experience and how life changing this app is. I was having issues with sleeping, which I have never encountered before. I would be exhausted and fall asleep at 7pm and wake up at 330am, unable to fall back to sleep. I went to the doctor for blood tests to see if i had any other physical issues that may be triggering the change in my sleep pattern and all tests came back negative. My doctor recommended to practice better sleep hygiene. I started using this app in the morning to meditate (10 min) and then use the sleep induced relaxation before bed. For 2 weeks now I have been able to get a full night sleep and feel more calm during the day. It takes practice and a willing to change, but this is the tool to use if you are ready and willing and want more calm and sleep in your daily life!
Calm yourself and Calm your soul.
by sophiapoo420 on 2017/09/04 22:08
I absolutely love, needed and highly recommend this app! Whether it's for small daily breathing exercises, soothing sounds for bedtime or meditation, this app helps guide you along a path of self recovery and starts the moment you click download. I have to say it has helped me with daily living. The bedtime stories and soothing sounds alone sold me but I love the daily calm meditations. I have been healing daily and recommend everyone try it. My daughter loves it to help her sleep and the guided meditation. She now is a very enlightened, leveled out ten year old and the meditation helps now with her hormonal and menstrual transition. I have to say everyone can benefit highly from it. The free demo is great to get your feet started and see how it helps before if you feel some doubt, but I doubt you will have any after you try it! Your soul will thank you! Calm yourself and Calm your soul.

Amazing app
by Cocopancakes on 2019/04/24 22:38
This app has helped my anxiety tremendously. It never fails to calm me down. I totally recommend it.
I love this app
by niftyjn on 2019/04/24 21:44
I have tried others but they are either too long or get so complicated with mantras etc that I lose focus The daily calm is just right...so I’m much more likely to participate Short with timely focus each day!!!
Absolute Fraud
by Calm is Terrible on 2019/04/24 21:17
Absolute money thieving fraud of a company. I downloaded their “free“ app. Never used it. Never even opened it. Without any notification or any updates or any authorization they build my account for $75.07 days later. Imagine that? Auto billed for a year with no notice. For an app named, “Calm” to put one through this kind of stress is absolutely disgusting and my only wish is that this company goes under faster than a cinderblock in the ocean. That would make me “calm.”
Don’t buy
by Lesa 6plus on 2019/04/24 19:50
Don’t install this because once you do you can never delete the app. If cancel your subscription the icon will forever be there and if your phone automatically updates your apps it will reinstall and change you again. Can’t get rid of it !!!
Excellent app..best relaxation
by Bunnygal13 on 2019/04/24 18:41
I love this app. It helps me tune out the craziness and help me calm down
It’s luke warm
by heampbell on 2019/04/24 16:29
I do enjoy this app and find that it helps me fall asleep or wind down. My primary complaint is that for $60, the majority of every meditation is the same. Whether it’s calming flight anxiety or learning about sleep, only a few minutes of each meditation is different. For how much the app costs, I don’t understand why they can’t fold in more research tidbits. Or calming truths about the specific issue. 7.5 minutes out of 11 will all be the same with just a few differences at the end. The sleep stories and nature sounds are nice, so if you want to spend $60 on that you can. Or you can find the Zen Garden pandora station and fall asleep for free.
SO glad I learned about this!!!
by Gramma Puppy on 2019/04/24 14:00
I’ve only started to use this - have heard a couple stories (well, part of them - they quickly put me to sleep)! And the calming sounds are fabulous - soooooo peaceful.
Great App!!!
by MaJic60 on 2019/04/24 08:07
I initially got this app while I was still working. I primarily used it for the sleep stories. It helped me to fall asleep quickly. And although I might wake up during the night, if I didn’t fall back asleep quickly, I would .listen to another story. I should say “start to listen to” a story, as I don’t think I’ve ever heard the end of a story.now that I am no longer working, I continue to use it. There are many stories to choose from with many different narrators. I have recommended this app to other people with problems sleeping.
Tryna get help
by ScincerlyDisappointed on 2019/04/24 06:41
I’m just trying to look for a getaway to help me sleep, and I’ve seen this everywhere so I thought it was a sign. However, I didn’t know you had to pay that much for all the stories. What if there are teens such as myself who doesn’t have a lot of money and wants an app to help with their routine. I know you have to make a profit off of your business but at least help us, because after realizing that price I feel like Alice tryna get to the garden through that tiny door.
Got scammed i guess
by hq831 on 2019/04/24 06:08
Free trial ran out and it instantly charged me $70 cancelling my credit card.

I really love this app.... it helps me fall a sleep when I have troubles. Very nice.
Satisfied costumer
by mad brittney on 2019/04/24 02:53
So I have a confession to make when I first tryed this app I was very mad because I didn't understand it and then this great very helpful man helped me he is named Nathan and he helped me throught it all and I love this app and I think Nathan should get a raise because he was very helpful and very kind so thank you Nathan for this wonderful experience you have helped through
Pls. Cancel
by msname on 2019/04/24 00:02
I want to cancel this app but it is not easy to do. I don’t want to pay $70.00 for something I can get through Alexa.
Pretty good if you don’t mind a subscription cost
by EEEwash on 2019/04/23 18:26
Very nice app. Once you download it for free you assume it will have free features...not entirely true. It’s subscription base. So you are very limited in the features you can try unless you sign up for the free trial for 7 days. After the free trial it will charge you $69 a year or so. I wish it had more options for those who don’t want to sign up for anything. Other than that the app is very serene, user friendly and easy to navigate.
Relaxation
by rejuvenate19 on 2019/04/23 17:39
I enjoy this website because it relaxes my mind and allows me to start my day with peacefulness!
Pricey
by aliceinwinderland51 on 2019/04/23 14:58
You have to pay to do certain meditations and the app freezes up a lot

This app took all my stress away so quickly!😍🥰🥳
Family Sharing?
by SugarLandSuperman on 2019/04/23 13:54
Great app, but how do we access the family sharing? My wife purchased this, yet I can only access the free portion; as much is locked.
Ricura🤤❤️

Me encanta🤩
Fantastic app
by bdsh.14 on 2019/04/23 12:01
I have tried many meditation apps but this is the best mindfulness app I have ever seen. It has been extremely helpful to keep me calm. The daily meditations are awesome. Though I don’t like the sleep stories and calm music, but it deserves an all-star rating only for meditations and it’s after effects. Some of the calm masterclasses are good. Hope they bring more of that. Also it’s a bug -free app. Never had any issues of crashing.
10 minutes each day CAN change your life!
by Buck Mountain Fan on 2019/04/23 11:51
Calm is the first thing I do every morning. It has changed my life by helping me cope with all sorts of problems and issues. But change is a process. So I continue to grow and learn and change by listening to Tamara for 10 minutes each morning.
Daily CALM Is a Daily Help
by Barnums on 2019/04/23 11:43
In the past year, I have had to deal with many serious, stressful, and sad situations. I never knew from day to day what would come my way. The one thing I knew I could count on, was my CALM app. I began each morning with meditation and the Daily Calm. It brought instant peace and confidence. During the day, if things became overwhelming, I would listen to one of the many excellent meditations on anxiety or stress. My walks would include listening to the excellent Master classes. I have listened Daily now for over a year, and it has had a huge impact on my life. To Tamara and everyone at CALM, thank you!
Crashes?
by Emeraldkiara on 2019/04/23 08:41
Really like the app and the soundscapes are very relaxing-but it crashes a lot, usually a couple times in a row after opening the app for about 5 seconds. Would like that to be fixed
Positive
by Datsthem on 2019/04/23 08:33
Love this app
Prepare to Pay
by Smayv on 2019/04/23 06:41
99% of the content is locked behind the subscription fee. It would be nice to have a few full programs available for free to get me into using the app daily and for it to demonstrate its value to me before asking for such a hefty payment. However, anything of use is locked. Sadly, I’ll be letting this one go. There are plenty of more reasonably priced comparable resources out there.
Only thing I wish would change is the payment options
by FairyGodMother1124 on 2019/04/23 03:27
If they broke the payment down I would keep my account open but I don’t have just 69.99 all at once I’m a single mother but I love this app god knows I do
I use this app almost every night
by Ashdassh on 2019/04/23 02:44
This app has helped me fall asleep every night I’ve used it. It’s so helpful for people who have anxiety and I love that I can pick the background sound. The premium is so worth it on this app, especially since I use it so often.
This app really does help
by App User 101 🐶 on 2019/04/22 22:12
It is so soothing. It let’s you take 10-15 minutes to be with yourself. It helps you overcome and help anxiety and stress. It makes you more happy. And helps you sleep. It’s the best. 😔🙂😎😁
This app is Bomb (.)
by roxanne hernandez on 2019/04/22 21:23
I am a little girl of 13 years old and I struggle a lot on staying still during school, tests, and on falling asleep. but this app has increased and has helped my sleep. And of staying still, I keep my mind only on the things I am suppose to. And I even look younger from all the stress taken out. And I think better when I am about to answer something. Really recommended (for all ages). And I would totally recommend y’all to get this.
Wow

Was dying to love this app... but... no. Just... no. $70 a year for... what?
Changed my life for the better
by Want2LikeIt on 2019/04/22 07:42
I’ve never written that before about an app but in this case it’s true. I’ve been using Calm for about a year and it’s helped manage my anxiety and its accompanying symptoms such as insomnia. I’m amazed by and grateful for this app.
Volume
by MaggieMay1920 on 2019/04/22 06:27
I’m not sure if I’m missing something but please add a way to control the volume from inside the app. I want to listen to the story on low but have my ringer volume up high for my alarm clock in the morning. I’ve seen this feature on other apps and I’m really surprised it’s not on this one, that’s why I think I might have missed it somehow? If I am missing something, then my bad, 5 stars.
Stressed out now
by poppyharlow2.0 on 2019/04/22 04:59
Seeing that $69 charge stressed me out so much I can’t enjoy app. Will probably delete
$$$$$
by aje84 on 2019/04/22 03:24
I think Calm would wonderful but the subscription plan is expensive is calculated for the year.
Would love to be able to set preferences
by mad_foot on 2019/04/21 22:23
I prefer this to Headspace for the sleep stories, and the options for kids are much better. Lots more meditations geared for them. I really hate the music upon startup tho, it’s supposed to be soothing but I find it grating and would love to be able to set it to make nature sounds when I open it. Or something like that.
Great App
by Suduko1 on 2019/04/21 21:16
Works great and is very relaxing!
Amazing! No regrets for the money spent
by Harmony&Hope on 2019/04/21 21:06
I use it daily now, though I did not at first. At first I got it to start the practice of meditating but like most habits I want to establish, I quickly lost my stride and pretty much gave up. But because I often listened to the bedtime stories and used its "Scenes" for white noise to get work done, the app stayed on my radar and kept encouraging me. Eventually I tried the meditation part again, permitting myself to do it while lying down, right before falling asleep, (not the 'right' way). This training wheels method worked for me. Now I do the Daily Calm every morning and another meditation before bed (both sitting upright in a relaxed but alert position). Best of all, when I sense my stress levels rise during the day, I can focus on the breath and return a bit easier to a sense of calm. Much thanks to Tamara Levitt and all at Calm. 🙏
Clam helps
by MaeSunshineTuckerMoon on 2019/04/21 20:43
Clam helps you deal with your life and helps me even though I am 9 and still under a lot of stress. I love Clam and I hope you will too! Mae-
NOT free
by California Chestnut on 2019/04/21 19:51
I’d give it two stars if the free content was worth the time. My experience was listening to the guide natter on about a subject instead of guiding a meditation.
Good but....
by billyc123 on 2019/04/21 19:02
It is awesome it really helps me but literally EVERYTHING is locked I mean there r like 2 things u can do I mean just annoying u know
AMAZING

It helps a lot from my anxiety and I’m more calm then ever and it has anything you need help from anxiety to stress
Life changer
by EchosInTheWind on 2019/04/21 16:31
This is a amazing app that thought me things I never knew. I actually look forward to coming back to it daily and it is changing me for the better day by day. The only feature that I wish existed was a way to only list the sessions that I favorited.
More free
by Irisit on 2019/04/21 16:25
It should give more options for free
Automatically charges you
by duped and not happy on 2019/04/21 14:23
Be aware, just by downloading this app you will be charged $70 and they will take your money without apology or refund. I can’t believe that is allowed.
THE ONLY REAL REVIEW HERE
by SalsDope on 2019/04/21 10:06
This app has got to be the biggest scam app there is lol even 90% of their reviews are fake. Literally doesn’t help you to sleep whatsoever and you can easily just go on YouTube yourself and look up some asmr videos for FREE. Seriously these guys want over $300 for a “lifetime “ fee. Not worth it.
Would be great...
by Gin T. on 2019/04/21 08:36
I’m sure this app would be great, if any of the features were accessible without shelling out $70. I downloaded it on a night that I was struggling, thinking it would help to put me in a better state of mind. Unfortunately, every section was limited to one or two options each with everything else being locked. Seems every “wellness” app is like this. Tbh, I’d prefer to just have to look at ugly ads.
My rate
by Scrape girl on 2019/04/21 03:48
It was a good app but I think you should put pictures
Most items are pay-to-use
by K. Wren Leigh on 2019/04/21 02:45
Vast majority of the items in the app (sleep, music) are only available on the paid version. I find the idea of paying $70 a year, in a single payment, very stressful. Uninstalling.
Best app in the AppStore
by @Folksrtalking on 2019/04/20 21:29
This an app amazing!
Free
by PlsListenToMuSuggestuons on 2019/04/20 20:57
First, way to many stories have to be premium. At least 25-30 stories should be free. Not just 3-4. Second, you should have a section of stories that are free. It would help instead of searching through all of the stories to find a free one.
I wish you would make this game a little more fun
by Calizforniam on 2019/04/20 20:26

It’s good.

Enjoyed the app but It should be for free
Completely locked
by Hdinwnf on 2019/04/20 07:49
I got this app looking to find a story, or something that could help me sleep as I saw advertised online, instead what I found was the entire app locked behind a paywall, with maybe two to three free stories. Seems like a fine app if your willing to pay $70 a year for it.
Amazing!
by lizard skynyrd on 2019/04/20 02:48
This app helps you take a moment for yourself! I use it when I’m feeling over whelmed and it brings me back to my center. The daily reminders help you stay focused on your goal! Without this app I’d be a lot less mindful!
Calm
by calmfulhayley on 2019/04/20 02:23

Tamera Levitt
by SandruhDee on 2019/04/19 15:08
If she is the true author of many of these meditations & stories, she is brilliant. BUT I really wish there would be more options for readers to read her work instead of her reading it herself because unfortunately many of the people I know, myself included, cannot stand listening to the way she reads. It’s her voice, it’s the way she forces every word to have vocal fry. It’s the way she adds so much inappropriate emotion where it doesn’t belong. It’s strong enough to where you cannot focus and relax. She is not relaxing at all. It seems more like she’s intentionally trying to evoke reactions and is way out of place for meditation and sleep stories. Literally cannot stand it and so we’re missing out on so many of the options. For premium you’d think they could offer the option to swap readers for a lot more of them than you can.
The best
by dream 12344321 on 2019/04/19 13:45
Calm helps me control my temper. Let’s me relax more from all the work I have to do. I would recommend this to everyone I know.😄
Very wonderful and helpful
by ZombieApex on 2019/04/19 11:22
This app helped me through so much anxiety, I feel so open and clear now. This app is 10/10 amazing and deserves these 5 stars. 😍
7 day trial appears to be a scam

Signed up for seven day trial. Was only able to access one day. The following day I could not access anything without signing up for a contract with this company. Disappointed!

One star review
by mow zow ka zow on 2019/04/19 04:13
I am not a big fan of this app calm because you can’t use anything in less you pay $63 so I don’t know if I should use my money on something I don’t know what will happen. It seams like a good app but I’m not interested to pay $63 today.
5 stars
by NATE_12109 on 2019/04/19 04:11
This app helped me sleep better then ever and im 24 I now go to sleep in about 10 minutes I used to take about 1 hour for me to go to sleep
TRASH!
by Kyle024104 on 2019/04/19 02:59
This app literally couldn’t of been any worse they wanted to get money as best as they could and all the choices I have contain somebody talking in them. Your better off on youtube. Embarassing. JOKE OF AN APP.

Calm
by avacooper14# STARBUCKS on 2019/04/18 17:10
Calm is the best app for if you are stressed out about taking a test, something for your job, a big project for work or whatever it is a good app. Buy it! 👍🏼
Changed my mental health
by KateStephens on 2019/04/18 15:21
I’ve tried meditation before. This app worked for me though. I currently am on a 71 day streak and my panic attacks have seemingly gone away. I love this app so much I have been gifting year subscriptions to anyone interested.
Love love love
by Lyricyea16 on 2019/04/18 15:16
If you use this app you definitely will be relieved of any extra anxiety and open another part of your brain that never existed. Love the voices
Such a gift
by McCoy1906 on 2019/04/18 15:15
This app has been such a gift to my life! I was feeling “off” and spiritually depleted for quite some time (over a year). I knew I needed something, then stumbled on an article about guided mindful meditation and apps. I looked at a few apps, but was drawn to this app because of its ease of use, rich features, and seemingly endless content. Since starting with the app, I feel more at peace, centered, and like my old self. The daily mediations and featured meditations give me real and immediate tools I can use to quickly draw myself back to a place of peace when thoughts/experiences attempt to off-center me.
Disappointed in v4.7
by McK2012 on 2019/04/18 10:15
I switched to Calm from another app in early 2019 as I found the guidance and the overall experience more helpful as someone new to meditation. One of my favorite features was being able to share the image at the end of the meditation to a DayOne journal as a way to remember and reflect on specific lessons. As a visual learner, easily capturing the image and jotting down a few notes was helpful in my learning. That image is no longer available when I try to share it with my DayOne journal in v4.7. I've looked through settings and it's not an option. I can capture the image by pretending to text the meditation to myself and copying the image. But that makes it a 5 step process which used to be available in 1 step. This disrupts the learning for me. It would be helpful if I could again bring the image along with the link to the meditation when I share to any app.
Love this app but needs improvements
by kaylaberg123 on 2019/04/18 08:08
I’ve been using this app every night for a week now and I will say that when it comes to the story section, majority of the people they have reading those stories don’t really have a soothing, soft voice to help put you to sleep and I’ve seen others complain about that feature also so hopefully they can make some changes. I love the nature sounds like rain and campfire especially since I can set a timer and they will continue to play even when I exit the app! Another thing I love is the lullaby section but I’m so disappointed that there’s only 4 to choose from and the only one that puts me to bed/makes me tired is lullaby to the stars. PLEASE add more lullabies that are softer and mellow like lullaby to the stars but please more lullabies would be amazing!!! Overall the app is good but considering I paid for the premium I just wish there were more sounds to choose from
Enough with the stupid voices!!!! Aggravating
by JeanmarieTodd on 2019/04/18 07:17
Adult sleep stories? Are you KIDDING ME?!!! Just give me the quiet music, please, without synthesizers or icky effects. Adults don't want bedtime stories! We want quiet, repetitive, gentle white noise-type music. I do not need two dozen bedtime stories. I don't need any. I just want options for nice, quiet music and birds singing all night. Don't waste money signing up Stephen Fry or Matthew McConnaghey to read me stories. Just nature sounds and quiet music, please!
Calm

by TealNavy on 2019/04/18 03:06
I was so excited to meditate and relax and just be calm where ever.... until that is when I saw that you had to pay 70 DOLLARS. Downloading this app was a waste of my time, excitement, and storage. I don’t recommend but, do as you please.
Amazing
by i suggest! on 2019/04/18 02:51
This app is amazing I fall asleep very fast while listening to the story’s and stuff it has made me gain a night routine and if I can’t sleep then I use this app and fall asleep very fast! I suggest this app!

It doesn’t have what I am looking for

I just wanted basic soothing sounds, it does have music and stories, but I’m not really interested in those. Does this offer just sounds?
Great app
by KJ3R3MY on 2019/04/18 01:33
I love falling asleep to the sleep stories and meditations. The only thing I don’t like is that it interferes with my alarm in the morning and JOLTS me awake. Maybe a built in alarm, with fade-in for a gentle wakeup, in the future? Thanks for aiding in my sleep Calm!!
Love this app
by dragogurl on 2019/04/18 00:38
My daughters and I love the calm app, especially the sleep stories. My daughter would like to request more sleep stories about dragons!
Love it
by MrsFitts on 2019/04/17 23:40
Some suggestions for an otherwise great app...a delay start option, I keep my phone not directly next to the bed so by the time I hit play and get in bed and get settled I have missed the first minute of the story. A repeat option, would love to be able to repeat a story either once or multiple times during the night. Great app and love that there are new stories weekly!
Amazing for Education
by cosmo22 on 2019/04/17 23:03
As I teacher I use this app with my students. It's a great way to teach mindfulness and allow my students time to process information. I've also seen students self regulate from things we've done from this app. Thank you for allowing teachers to have full access.
Never thought I would enjoy meditating...
by Shippy! on 2019/04/17 22:38
Or thought I would get so much out of it, but I do! The benefits are clear and I really enjoy the variety of sessions/topics offered. Fantastic app!
“Stress release”
by younginn3 on 2019/04/17 18:38
Was excited to try this calming app to help me with anxeity, stress, sleep and so on. Come to find out, this app only allows you to try one of their options for free, and if you try anything else they have you get a 7 day free trial then they charge you a whopping 69.99 after. For a “stress relieving” app, your pretty stressful. Greed is why so many people are still dealing with their mental issues.
Boredom
by Getteggb on 2019/04/17 17:08
This just what I needed to hear and I almost stopped the guided meditation until she said what I was thinking. I was about to side step the problem I was facing instead of moving through it. Brilliant!
Absolutely Love!
by mcn1130 on 2019/04/17 13:12
There are so many different ways to use calm. As a classroom teacher I have started using meditations with my students and playing the music while we work. I would love for some more content in the age specific sections. Perhaps some meditations clad are between 5-8 minutes? The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was simply because I want more! Thank you.
You have to pay subscriptions just to use this app!
by jamsal07 on 2019/04/17 12:36
This app is great but I’m so annoyed that recently they locked like all the music and the meditations, now you can’t listen to any background music for free and most meditations you have to pay. It’s ridiculous you shouldn’t have to pay to meditate! I don’t think I’m going to use this app anymore unless they open some of their meditations for free users! Insight Timer is so much better!
Life changing
by bgschubert on 2019/04/12 14:43
I used to use Headspace for meditation (which is a fine app - especially if you’re just getting started) but Calm has helped me take things to a whole other level. The Headspace meditations were essentially all the same - there are maybe four variations but he cycles through those four and you get the same mix regardless of what series you’re working on (stress, anxiety, work performance, etc). I feel like the Calm meditations go much deeper and I’m noticing a huge difference in myself after switching over to Calm. Historically, I’m somewhat self critical and I have a higher than normal baseline for general anxiety (although I wouldn’t say that I have an anxiety disorder by any means). At times, these things make me impulsive or reactive in certain ways that I don’t like. I feel like I’m much more self aware after switching to Calm and I’m able to identify when I’m experiencing certain feelings and deal with them in a healthy way. Aside from that, I’m much more enthusiastic about my meditation practice and I’m meditating more often since I learn new skills every day rather than sitting through the same old boring meditation. Calm gives you a toolbox with multiple different tools that you can use in various situations. I love it and highly recommend it to anyone.
Believe the hype
by Gallery Hopping NYC on 2018/10/30 13:09
Need help with a guided meditation to help clear and calm your mind? I use CALM daily in my mindful journey. I’ve developed techniques that help me combat a busy and destructive mind and I continuing to learn how to balance my thoughts. I’m learning how to harness my own energy to create a balance and flow. Meditation isn’t about shutting down the mind or silencing thoughts. Meditation isn’t even about saying “I can’t do it because I can’t sit still and I’m always thinking of something”. Our minds are naturally busy so are the thoughts that come in and out. Meditation helps me to non judgmentally acknowledge those thoughts then release them so they are not the forefront of my existence. We can’t properly unpack each thought to deal with them accordingly with clarity and focus if our entire system is overloaded. My quest for peace, balance, clarity, focus and being present continues, and CALM is part of that journey. 🧘🏾‍♀️ 🕉 to enhance your experience, you can customize sounds that will help you create the right ambience. This feature is important to me because I am in a busy city so you can hear everything all the time. Also, their free services offer a vast variety of techniques so don’t be discouraged by the price. There are plenty of great free option in the app.
When medication can’t cure everything
by Kirstttttyeah on 2018/12/09 02:43
This app is a life saver... I’m on two different medications for my anxiety, depression, PTSD and more. There are days where I’m completely happy with the effects of my medications and then there are days where I feel like I’ve back peddled and don’t know what I’m doing. Calm is the best app for my worst of days. I use their “breath” function weekly- and their nature sounds every single night all night long. it helps me go to sleep because sleep is a huge problem for me. The best part is you can lock your phone and it’ll keep going! The free meditations are amazing and the best part is that they remain free... it doesn’t automatically go away after trial. You do have other options to buy more- but you don’t have too. You can benefit from the free version which really leads me to believe that the makers of this app are really in this to help people like me. I will eventually buy the full version- but right now it’s not in budget. This app is a staple for me and my mental health. It’s a huge part of my healing process and my calming down processes after anxiety attacks that happen almost daily. Thank you, calm designers for bringing me something I can rely on. ❤️
Free features aren’t bad, but a few issues.
by Alice Valkyrie on 2019/01/31 19:34
I recently re-downloaded this app and like the free features (when I downloaded it years ago one of my favorite features was “Scenes,” so as long as I have access to those for free, this app will stay on my phone). However, it’s a bit annoying that I now have a “Daily Calm Perception” notification on my screen that is locked and that I can’t remove. I don’t purchase app subscriptions, though I would be more than willing to support this app by individually buying content I was interested in as one-time purchases). If you don’t plan on allowing users to buy content separately, can you please at least give us the option to only view non-subscription content if we wish (with no content we can’t access clogging up the screen)? I read another review stating that some of the music was available to non-subscribers. It all appears locked for me. Can you clarify please? Also, are all 7 days for any of the meditations unlocked for free users? I just listened to the first day of “7 Days of Calming Anxiety” but I don’t think I can listen to the second one (or even repeat day one w/o subscribing, which is a bit ridiculous IMO). Please consider alternative payment models in the future. I’d love to support the app, just not with a subscription.
Love This App!
by Gabbyellen on 2019/01/20 22:13
I am a lifelong insomniac. I spend most nights staring at the ceiling for an hour or more before I fall asleep if I do at all. This app has helped so much in getting myself into "sleep mode" and calming down & stopping my brain from rewinding the day or cycling through the next day's schedule. I occasionally listen to music but I mostly stick to the readings. My only request is to get Matthew McConaughey to do more readings! I have tried listening to others and they just don't work. I'd say my biggest complaint is they are all reading as though they are reading to an audience that's awake and aware. They are either too loud (even on the lowest setting) or reading with too much inflection which excites one rather than lulling one to sleep. MM knew his audience and his reading is in a very soft tone, his voice is calming and relaxing and he also seems to lower his voice as the story goes on, barely above a whisper by the end. All in all his is the perfect presentation and the only one I can fall asleep to! So please keep this story in rotation and if you can convince him to do more, please do! Otherwise I am content listening to the same story night after night.
I need Daily Calm every day
by Emmie Eaton on 2018/11/06 16:03
Ever since I tried the free version of Daily Calm I knew it was exactly what I needed. I have used the premium subscription for a year now and Calm has more than met my expectations but exceeded them by far. Every morning I am in guided meditation with Tamara and then I do the gentle morning wake up stretches which have made a huge difference in the pain I used to have from my back issues. I do the chair stretches at work and the back care exercises when my lower back is hurting. I also listen to the sleep stories every night and fall asleep before half the story is over. These stories are so soothing and relaxing. And there are so many different stories and meditations to choose from. I can’t wait to delve into the talks given by experts regarding mindfulness and breaking bad habits, etc. I just wish I had more time to spend on Calm because I enjoy it so much. It has been worth every penny and i just renewed my subscription. Daily Calm is exactly what I need on a daily and nightly basis. I absolutely love it and look forward to another year with these wonderful people in this amazing app.
21days of Calm ... and so much more
by Opiewanobie on 2019/03/07 15:11
Do you experience any stress in your life? Or, perhaps your life is spinning out of control. Or, if not, you may find yourself somewhere in between. The Calm app does not solve life‘s problems but it does help reframe them to give us a better way of living with and living through our problems. One of the greatest features is the Daily Calm which is a 10+ minute meditation. This does not mean zoning out to some strange mantra and pursuing another mystical realm! Instead, the user is guided through various styles of mindfulness. At the conclusion, guidance is given on how to approach life or reframe our issues in order to better live life rather than life dominating you. If you do choose to subscribe, there are probably hundreds of targeted series (and growing)-/ everything from sleeping better to dealing with relationships with others, dealing with loss and even dealing with yourself. Using this app consistently (I use it frequently, not daily—I sometimes forget or get caught up in my business!) will surely help you not control your life but learn to not be controlled by your life.
Daily sessions to look forward to
by Furrilius on 2017/11/29 02:21
I never knew much about meditation until a mentor introduced me to the practice. It is exactly that, a practice. I found it difficult at first to stay focused but found that it came more easily the more I did it. I became hooked and noticed the positive impact it had on all aspects of my busy, hectic life. I knew I wanted to continue guided meditation and my mentor recommend finding an app that I liked. After trying free-trials of several apps I knew hands down this was the one for me. The selection of background sounds, and her soothing voice were exactly what I was looking for. The length of sessions are sufficient to fully relax and recharge yet not too cumbersome to fit into a busy schedule. I come to look forward to the sessions at the end of each day as my “me time.” I like that there are pre-programmed sessions aimed at specific topics or goals and there are daily sessions as well. The fact that the app keeps track of my progress helps to keep me motivated to never skip a day. I can’t say enough good things about this app, well worth every penny!! I am hooked.
Great, but limited content, needs more
by bioeric on 2018/11/25 08:17
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.
Amazing but....
by Avasherry234 on 2019/02/09 13:03
Okay, I will be honest this app is so relaxing. At first, I thought that it would be some kind of boring app that wouldn’t have any use— well I was wrong. This app is so good. There are different types of meditations that you can do for seven days, sleep stories that will make you fall asleep, classical music, relaxing backgrounds that you can change anytime, yoga lessons, and to just breath normally. I started about a week ago, and I have been so relaxed after that. I don’t get as mad when my lil sis hides in my room and steals things, I don’t get as frustrated when my parents ask me to do double chores with no extra allowance. But there is something that I will have to point out before you download this app— most of the things are NOT free! Most sleep stories are not free, most meditation thingies are not free (you can only have one sample then every other day is locked, ask of the relaxing music costs money, it is the same for the yoga. You need to buy a year’s worth of unlimited pro, month, or week. To me it is kind of unfair, but they still allow a few sleep stories and I can get relaxed even without the pro needed.
Sunshine
by Pagdbdndksklakandb on 2017/11/21 13:43
I am loving Calm. It is perfect for where I am right now. I love the 10 minute daily calm. I look forward to the new topic each day and 10 minutes is a very manageable amount of time even in my busy schedule. I am working through the 21 day beginning meditation series as well. I like that I can do the daily calm each day and then add a 10 minute beginning session when I have time. Tamara’s voice I find very pleasant and reassuring. I like being able to choose some soothing background sound like birds chirping or fire crackling. And finally I am enjoying the sleep stories and find they are helping me fall asleep more quickly in the evenings. The only negative is I’m not too fond of the music selections. I find most of the music to be somewhat jarring and irritating rather than soothing. I would love if some peaceful soothing music were added as options. So right now I just don’t listen to the music. Overall, this app has been fantastic for helping me learn to quiet my mind and stop destructive thought loops. I am definitely feeling calmer and more present than ever before.
More narrators please
by Dia diamonde on 2019/03/18 10:39
This app has been incredibly helpful for me; the focused texts are simple enough to be absorbable / not distracting in a state of meditation, when you need it most. The 7 days series is excellent. The texts themselves are poignant with the exception of some cultural references Ive heard (honestly, I don’t think this is any place to mention what Amanda Palmer from Dresden Dolls thinks) - trying way too hard with that. My main issue which has kept me from being able to use about 50% of the guided meditations, including Daily Calm and most other practices, is that I just can not bear the speaking voice of Tamara Levitt. I’ve tried & tried and i just can’t. It it is probably just me but she really rubs me the wrong way in how mushy and drippy her voice is...it comes across as disingenuous but I realize that the intention is exactly the opposite. It would be really nice to have at least one other choice for each program - ideally the other one would be more neutral. It’s a pity because I like the content very much, but otherwise, with no adjustments of added narrators it will probably keep me from renewing my subscription.
Worth every penny
by Mrs zamayoa on 2018/05/18 00:44
It almost seems like everyone in the world has anxiety and depression nowadays. I do t want another problem like addiction to drugs so I was endlessly in search of alternative help. I just want to be more in control of my emotions. Hormones play a big part in my emotions. An instance that makes me furious, sad, depressed, hopeless, and aggravated one day could be the same instance on another day and it wouldn’t bother me a bit. Due to my fluctuations in emotions due to hormone changes I didn’t want to take pill(s) daily. So I stumbled across this app and gave it a try. NEVER LOOKED BACK. It’s wonderful for stopping me in my tracks and calming me down. But you do it often and the lessons follow in your life. I love love love the coach’s voice. I am a private person and don’t share my feelings which is helpful to some, but I don’t need to when I practice with the help of this app. You can choose how much time you want to spend. A lot or a little. There’s even an “emergency calm” selection, I haven’t used but am saving it for when I need that best friend to say “everything is going to be ok!”
Thankful and learning each day to be Calm
by Seashell60 on 2017/08/26 05:54
My doctor had shared with me about the benefits of meditation.... I needed something to help when I was anxious as well something to help me relax. Shortly after that doctor visit I found the Calm app. It's been almost 2 years. It had been a stressful day and there was an introduction to the app and I took the 10 minutes and did the breathing and really focused on relaxing. I went back to work and I immediately told everyone about Calm.... I have been using it ever since! The time I meditate is my time to focus, to breathe and to just be in the moment. I had horrible insomnia and started the body scans... I tried the sessions without buying the subscription but soon found that I wanted more of the sessions after I did the first; so I bought the subscription and have never regretted it once! It's been a godsend. I love the bedtime stories and the daily Calm.... there is so much on this app that has helped me. I love that the app is adding new things. Thank you Tamara for sharing and helping me bring peace and calm into my life!
I can't rate this app highly enough!
by Valholla03 on 2017/09/01 02:33
1st off, I TRULY appreciate the app giving me time to try its features before asking for an App Store review. I absolutely HATE when you've used an app for all of 5 minutes and then it asks you to rate it. Absolutely awful, how would I really know? This app gave me the time to explore it and use it for a good week before asking for a review. Bravo! As far as the app itself, by session 7, I REALLY zoned out into the meditation and almost put myself to sleep I was so calm. I remember when I first began I was anxious to check when I would be done. But by the end of the week, I was surprised we were done already. I'm excited about that. The music is calming, the guidance is very calming and helpful. And it's very easy to use and I love the reminder and quotes at the end. Again, I can't rate this app highly enough. I hasn't even asked me to upgrade to the paid version yet so I don't know how much it costs to continue meditating but I sure hope I can afford it. They deserve being compensated for the labor of this app!
I love this app!
by jenna11d4 on 2017/08/27 13:58
I struggle with anxiety and insomnia. I've meditated on and off for years and felt better but recently had lost interest in my usual mantra meditations. I'd been thinking mindfulness would be good to try but couldn't quite get myself to spend hundreds of dollars for official classes. A friend told me about Calm and I decided to try it. I was surprised by the high quality of the instruction. It's like having a guru, therapist, and wise friend all in one. After a week I decided to pay for the full version. Incredible value for money. I've meditated every day for two months and been able to bring mindfulness to many areas of my life - my job, eating habits, and social interactions. Those are all still a work in progress but becoming more aware of how my anxiety affects me in those settings is a huge first step. I also love the sleep stories and music. I love knowing that if I wake up in the middle of the night I have this great tool to help me break the gerbil wheel of worrying thoughts and fall back to sleep.
Great Tool as a Baby Step Towards True Mental Strengthening
by Job goer on 2018/11/07 12:08
Calm has a good selection of soothing background audios to ensure an environment conducive for stabilizing the mind. The reminders help those that struggle with maintaining a regular regimen of taking time out for mindfulness. Getting them to stop doesn’t always work, but maybe that is part of the point. The free edition has sufficient features for anyone curious about experiencing mindfulness, yet the add-ons are probably not a necessary. “Mindfulness” in itself has become a buzz word apparently coined by amateurs, and practices have mixed and matched true authentic, effective techniques to make for better marketing and adoption. So if you subscribe to the guided features, you won’t realize the true benefits of what mindfulness is after. Yet, the tool is excellent for helping you achieve a rhythm with some reminders if you have a real authentic mindfulness coach that knows more than just theory (and amateur practice) but has achieved mystic capabilities through mastery of the authentic techniques.
You need this!
by Wildhoney1214 on 2018/04/26 20:18
Two days ago, I ran into a specialists office panicking over clogged ears. Stupid, right? That’s how anxious, panicky people are. We think we are dying all the time. Went to bed with clogged ears and anxious. I was hoping a good sleep would calm me down enough for the next day. Nope. Woke up more anxious than normal with those clogged ears. While driving to work, I had a sudden urge to go to the ER and beg for anything to calm me down. I am one of those people who does not want medication, but I was desperate. I saw Calm on a commercial last night and didn’t think it would benefit because I was in bad shape. I tried the free version and it was ok, but i wanted more and I’m glad I did. I did the first day of 7 days of calm today and it helped me immensely. I no longer felt like jumping out of my skin and i got some relief. Every now and then, I feel a little anxious but I can now calm myself down and get back to work. And this is just day one. For those who are suffering greatly, keep and open mind and try this.
Very Satisfied
by Love Them Cards on 2019/01/26 18:07
I had been wanting to start meditating and wasn’t sure where to begin. While telling a friend this, she told me her holistic physician had suggested that she try the Calm App. I downloaded the app and began my Journey with Calm. It was a stressful time in my life. I wasn’t sleeping well and my thoughts were going so fast through my head. I used the sleep stories in those nights I had a hard time falling asleep or when I’d wake up and couldn’t go back to sleep. The sleep stories were very helpful. I also started meditating 10 minutes a day. There are a wide variety of meditations even on the free version. The app also helps keep you informed on how often you are using the App. There are specialists in different fields that do informative series. I could see how I was using my skills that the App taught me to help keep myself calm and present through the day, so I subscribed for the year. This opened up even more features. You have nothing to loose by trying Calm and everything to gain.
Very poor performance
by Caw- on 2018/03/30 16:34
I’ve had this app for about 2 months and absolutely loved it until recently. When I purchased it something happened and they charged me twice for the app. There wasn’t a way to contact them so I asked my credit card company to reverse the charges and they did. Coincidentally at almost the exact time that the charge was reversed my app started performing horribly - it started killing my battery, literally to zero, after only playing 1 story. For example, reviewing the battery usage indicator on my iPhone 10 says I’ve used the app for 1 hour and used over 80% of my battery. I have restarted my phone numerous times, loaded all the Calm updates, and have reported the issue to them via their help center. I don’t believe in coincidences - I haven’t seen any reviews here that indicate this is an issue with anyone else. This app developer must be a rouge programmer in his/her garage - scary stuff. I’m going to get another refund if this performance problem doesn’t magically disappear. And then I’m going to develop an app just like this to sell for a much cheaper price and compete with this product. Shame on the price they charge for this app - that I have read in the reviews.
Progress is slow but I am enjoying the steps along the path
by Gizzerella on 2017/09/19 04:03
After a year of nothing but stress, I felt that I needed a way to take control back and give myself some peace of mind, calm and some sleep. I tried the free version for a few weeks and loved it, so I went ahead and purchased it, and haven't looked back. I usually do the daily meditation in the morning and one of the program meditations at night, followed by a sleep story. While I still feel that I am not sure I am any better at meditating, I do feel more at peace and calmer. I do wish for 2 things for this app: 1, that they tell you or give you an idea of what to do with your mind's eye once you close your eyes. For me, it is worse than my thoughts. But my husband and I came up with 2 different "views" (i.e. a meadow near a brook with dandelions to put my thoughts on and "blow" them away during my next breath - the visual of seeing them float away helps put them to rest). Now that I can focus on that I can focus easier on the breath. And the 2nd thing I wish this app offered was a dairy of some sort. At the end of each session, you ask how it was, but I want to also comment on how I was - was I distracted, or did I feel that I improved. Being able to see the progress helps the progress along. It also would be a good thing to look back over and see if certain lessons need to be re-explored. But even without those, I think the app is great and have enjoyed using it.
Disappointed
by Nuffareddy on 2018/03/05 18:18
This is probably a wonderful app if you have the money for it. But I haven’t been able to figure out whether it would be worth the money, and now that they have pulled a sneaky trick I probably won’t. I had been trying it out while deciding whether to buy in and pay for “Premium.” I have liked the limited parts of the app I have been able to access, but was hesitating because the app is kind of expensive for me. Unfortunately, when the app was updated they locked some of the aspects that were previously open. This doesn’t seem to be in the spirit of the intention of the app. If it’s purpose is to bring more “calm” to the world, why would they do something so frustrating? There are other meditation apps out there, so I guess I’ll keep looking. PS - After going back and looking at the reviews, I can see that this one review probably isn’t going to be noticed by anyone. There are only a few negative reviews, and like mine, they are mostly complaining about the high cost and the general ethos behind offering such an app at such a cost. Apparently this is a great app if you have the money for it, and there are a whole lot five-star reviewers who can afford it.
First time for everything
by Mc:x on 2018/05/04 17:45
I've never been able to actually relax enough to meditate. Today, I didn't quit before giving it a true try. I experienced a sense of connection to life. A sweet calmness relaxed my heart rate and my muscles as well as my thinking. I'm a believer in Jesus as the one savior. The entire bible is knit together too perfectly for it to have been a hoax. For the reason of being a Christian, I thought that true meditation would conflict. I believed that if one opened their mind to relaxation then it would allow for evil thoughts to sneak in. This is NOT what I experienced. I simply continued to know my lord, and savior as I worked to relieve my self of the stress in my life. Therefore, allowing for meditation and Christianity to work as a powerful force to release the power of stress in my life. A way to look at my life one moment at a time. No overwhelming thoughts were given the power to ruin my moment, hours or day... I feel at peace and confident that God is ultimately in control!
Find Peace with Calm
by Gossamer8 on 2018/05/14 15:23
The variety of meditation options in Calm means you will never be lost for a session regardless of why you’re seeking out a calming meditative escape. Pause your busy day and busy mind with everything from simple, low guidance sessions, set for the time you want and have available, or take a guided course that assists you with addressing an area of concern, like anxiety, depression, or just building resilience and gratitude skills. Calm now has masterclasses (which I intend to try soon!), meditations geared towards kids, and even bedtime stories, for those of us whose busy minds need a calm voice to lull us to sleep still. The calming bedtime sessions have helped me on numerous evenings when I thought I was going to be up way past my bedtime with insomnia. Instead, I quietly listened to someone reading a story, with tranquil ambient sounds, and was asleep minutes later. Give Calm a try, you have nothing to lose! The paid content is definitely worth the subscription price!
Great way to meditate in any manner and at all levels.
by Ambrai on 2017/09/04 15:39
I started meditating a over 2 years ago and went looking for an app to help shortly thereafter. The beginner guided sessions have walked me through the basics and getting better sleep. The deeper guided sessions start at 3 minutes and work up from there in great easy, workable increments. The daily Calm meditations are wonderful - all about 10 minutes long and give a bump to the variety of meditation available. The timed, unguided sessions are great once you know what you want to focus on. Sleep Stories include fiction and non-fiction read by a wide variety of people. There are tales in, what are to me, second languages, and they are amazing too! There's also music and ambient sounds with music. The most recent addition is 'Music' - this has 'Focus', 'Calm/Relax', 'Deep Sleep' and they seem to be different tones and patterns/wavelengths to help with those activities. I haven't used them much, but it's safe to say, this app is simply wonderful.
Male guided meditation? ❤️ the add of Music.

❤️ the music! Especially Michael Denny's Invigorate under the Relax heading. Wish the visual background was 'live' i.e. moved IRT like Scenes do. (Sidenote: can't wait to VR this app up when that day comes.) Noticed I have used guided meditations less and less over the years of my sub. Which overall I do think is still a great value. But maybe switch it up and throw a dude on the track. Nothing against the female guides (assuming they are actual humans and not very good robot voices haha), but I wouldn't mind the variety. I can't be the only one to feel this way. Or are there male guided sessions somewhere in here that I just haven't found? Idk. I'm looking for something between Eckhart Tolle and a late night Pillow Talk FM-type DJ. Feel me? Not all the app feature updates are winners but I appreciate that the Calm team keeps trying to refine and improve. Makes it feel very much worth the price of subscription. PS- wrote this while lying in a clay ball sauna. 🤙
I almost love this 100% but...

When I downloaded this app I was delighted at the surprising approach to relaxing at bedtime: Sleep stories for adults! Genius! At first I thought the idea was silly but was sold after a couple evenings of stories. I subscribed for the year. I was really looking forward to the Daily Calm, too. Stories with wonderful readers like Anna Acton and Stephen Fry are pure heaven. Sadly, it’s Tamara Levitt’s voice that made me cancel my subscription. I feel awful saying this but it’s true. What is perhaps an attempt to sound soothing comes across as phony affectation. It’s grating. As a result I can’t listen to the Daily Calm. When my partner chose a story read by her one evening he and I were just minutes in before he asked for one read by someone else (without me having expressed my opinion about her tone of voice). This is a solid app. If the content she curates is read by others, however, it would be a GREAT app. I would happily resubscribe if the readers and voices at Calm were less Tamara and more varied.
Excellent app worth every cent

I was a little skeptical when I saw this app but when I read it was the 2017 app of the year I gave it a try. That said, I was too cheap to pay for the full app for nearly a year. Since that time, Calm has really improved my life. The focused meditations are great for different concerns (self esteem, focus, anxiety, etc.), the background music/ambient noise immediately relaxes my mind, the daily calm sessions are interesting and motivational, and the sleep stories are great. I have not yet tried the calm body series but it is on my list. The only reason I’m not rating this 5 stars is that I wish there were more sleep stories (there are already a lot but new ones would be good) and that they were longer. A lot are only 10-15 minutes. I definitely feel calmer overall in my daily life and I find myself not getting as frustrated or angry as I used to. I am also falling asleep more easily and waking up earlier. Definitely worthy of the price! Best app I’ve ever downloaded.
This app locked me out after paying!
by Core104 on 2018/10/12 17:44
After trying this app for a few days, I was in a moment of stress and signed up for the 7-day free trial early this morning. After I agreed to have $60 charged in the App Store after the free trial, the Calm app did not unlock its content for me. I quit the app and tried again. No success. I went to manage by subscription and hit “restore” within the app, but it said “no account found.” I then logged out and tried to long in again— but the app wouldn’t let me log in, saying “bad gateway”. I then tried to change my password, but I got an error message saying “there is a problem resetting your password.” I deleted the app and reinstalled it from App Store. Again no luck logging in— even though the App Store says I have a free trial and I’ll be charged $60 after 7 days. Great. I can’t even access the app to cancel this recurring subscription. Their website doesn’t work and I can’t contact them. I will have to take this up with my credit card company. The Calm developers are CROOKS and SCAMMED me out of money. I wanted to use it to get back to sleep, but it’s made me anything but calm! STAY AWAY and choose a different app!!!!
Calm app has helped to change my life
by L@nZ on 2017/09/22 16:13
[September update: I still use this app on a daily basis, including the new Sleep stories and music. I can't recommend this app highly enough. It is making a big impact in my life and my ability to deal with changes in our country and politics.] I highly recommend the Calm App, especially the basic subscription model. After learning meditation basics from the free versions, I realized that I needed more and subscribed more than a year ago. The Daily Calm meditation, each on a different but related theme, makes it possible to practice on a daily basis. The meditation leader presents lovely thoughtful meditations, with an appropriate quotation. There are numerous meditations focused on different issues such as anxiety, compassion, and loving kindness. The lovely images and sounds furnish calming and focusing backgrounds. The new sleep stories module has really helped with my middle of the night insomnia. I highly recommend the Calm App.
Just awesome!
by KathyLynn520 on 2017/12/11 03:45
I struggle with anxiety and depression, plus the related insomnia. My doctors have all recommended meditation but I couldn’t ever figure out how to do it. The guidance on this app, however, finally made the connection for me. I’ve learned how to quiet my mind without additional medication. Not saying all my problems are gone - just that I have a new tool to help me cope. And the sleep stories are the best! Anytime the brain won’t let me sleep, I turn a sleep story on. It engages my mind enough to distract it from the litany of worries, stresses, and reminders of middle school embarrassments. I love the wide variety of narrators and subject matter. One other thing... when I began looking for a meditation app, I really wanted to avoid any that promoted specific spiritual or religious practices. I haven’t come across anything like that in Calm. I can fold these meditations into my own beliefs/traditions without feeling stressed that they’re in conflict with one another.
Seeing improvement
by Z Taalib Bey on 2017/09/15 18:43
I am using a variety of tools to assist with my personal growth and development. I have my work cut out for me. I've had this wonderful app for a couple of weeks. I started with the sleep stories and at first I couldn't do it every night. There was almost a week between the first and second time. Last night there was only a day between, and only a day between the one before that. I know that may sound insignificant but for me that is HUGE. I'm committed to doing the sleep every day, even when I work at night and I'm actually sleeping during the day. I am feeling the improvement in the quality of my sleep. Today I will also try the breathing and focus. I tend not to rate apps, but for some reason I'm feeling compelled to with this one even though I haven't been using it long. I'm pretty sure I'll be back with periodic updates. Btw, I gave 4 stars (vs 5) to leave room for improvement.💜
This is worth it!

I struggled with horrible PTSD symptoms for years now. It was difficult to apply mindfulness to my everyday routine until I found this app. It has greatly reduced my physical and mental symptoms by allowing me to become aware, ride the waves and let go of emotion. I’m not going to say it’s a cure because there is no such thing. I view it as a tool to maintain your mental fitness like a treadmill and exercise helps maintain your physical fitness. Gradually over time your mind becomes stronger and more capable but mindfulness like physical exercise should become part of your routine so you can keep optimum mental fitness. Also, I was on medication and no longer require it yet it doesn’t mean anyone should stop taking their medication. I suggest to start doing mindfulness and as you progress there may be a reduction to your prescription and eventually you may be able to come off of them. Hope this is helpful! God bless!
One of the best
by Emdiam on 2017/10/31 03:43
I’m rarely the type to review an app and I’m even less likely to purchase the full version of an app — in the case of this app, I’ve done both which should really be a testament to how much I truly appreciate this app and all its features. After long bout with insomnia and unable to “shut down” my brain at night I downloaded this app and used the free features for a couple of weeks. The sleep stories lulled me to sleep and I was able to meditate after some intense anxiety. I finally purchased the full version and am so glad I did. No matter my mood or my goal (sleep, focus, or lessen anxiety) it has something for me and there’s so much content I never feel like it’s not worth it. I love the voice overs and guided meditations don’t feel forced. I’m brand new to this and I can see myself feeling better the more I use it. I look forward to it every night. A huge thanks to the makers of this app.
What a great and useful App!
by luckybucky32 on 2018/04/30 13:02
Mind you, you can’t unlock all the features right away, or unless you pay or happen to have a ton of time on your hands, but this app was my favorite download of the year. You can meditate, listen to calming sessions, or music, and even choose your own scenes/background, which not only have accompanied sound, but also videos of corresponding scenes of nature and whatnot. My favorites are Pouring Rain, Tropical Beach, Passing Clouds, Coastline at Sunset, Foggy Steam, Thunderstorm, Evening Crickets, and Summer Meadow. They even have ones like; Fireplace, Zen Ocean, Falling Raindrops, Rhythmic Waves, Woodland Lake, Plains of Wheat, Mystic Fountain and Mountain Lake. I know there’s more but I suggest checking out this seriously cool App! Along with the Sleep Stories, relaxing music, focus training, and meditation for beginners, stress, relationships, sleep, emotions, and so on...this App is what you need at the end of any type of day, what we all need is a little Calm!
helpful for sleep
by Sellsews on 2019/01/24 06:16
I have very much enjoyed this app as many of the stories are perfect for lulling you off to sleep. 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 extremely 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. I find the whispered stories super creepy… But that is just a personal opinion. With a few minor tweaks and more frequent content updates, this app could be exceptional.
Love it
by HoldingOut4Updates on 2018/01/08 23:24
I love this app so much, and cannot begin to tell you how much it has helped me. An addition that I would love to see is the ability to go back to a daily calm that one has missed. I tend to meditate at night before bed, but if that doesn't happen before midnight, or I miss my 24hr window, I lose that Daily Calm. Then I feel terrible that I've missed it for that day. For example, yesterday's was about Practice... I'm a classical musician, and practice is a necessary evil, however I didn't get to meditate until it was too late, and it was no longer accessible. Also, why not make the daily calm a part of a larger accessible archive for subscribers, so that one may focus on a particular issue that needs work or focus, vs just a small selection of a few daily calms. For the steep cost of the subscription, that would really make me very very happy. Thank you for considering my ideas.
Many insomnia triggers!
by Princiegall on 2019/02/28 17:34
Migraine, fibromyalgia, genetic anxiety...all contributors to my struggles with falling asleep. I don’t remember the first place I saw Calm advertised but it popped into my head about three weeks ago and has already done wonders. Right now I’m mainly using the Music category and selecting either Sleep which are very gentle music compositions or Soundscapes which are different sounds from nature. There is so much to choose from depending on your needs.....sleep, energy, meditation, putting a child to sleep, yoga background sounds.....I’ve only scratched the surface. What I have used has helped me focus on the sound instead of my pain or what I’m concerned about. I set it for 30 minutes and I fall to sleep before it’s over. Before this I was lying awake for 2-3 hours and sometimes more.....like all night long. I highly recommend this app to anyone who wants a little more peace in their life.
♡ SUGGESTIONS ♡
by sleepy amber on 2018/04/30 11:12
•allow a que: when i fall asleep, it’d be nice to align a que to automatically go from a sleep meditation practice, to a sleep story, to music without having to exit my trance to open my phone and do it myself. •add things to listen to during workouts: it would be awesome to have a breathing regimen to listen to with some upbeat simple background music. i would love to hear this calming voice guide me through breathing while i’m working out- maybe allow it to play over music we have playing in other apps if possible. simple upbeat “elevator” music would even be great. otherwise- this app grounds me, centers me, and makes me calm. i can actually appreciate the meditation programs, and don’t find them to be corny or tenuous. 100% worth the money for full access for a YEAR!! i love it, thank you creators for helping with my negative mindset. and i LOVE the voice, i hope you never change her!
Great but one minor change...
by Linzimrg13 on 2018/04/07 07:22
This app is amazing and helps me fall asleep very quickly, the voices are amazing and so is the scenery, pictures and music this app gives. I use the sleep story a lot at night and I really think you guys should unlock premium stories for a couple days because I am so use to hearing “The Waterfall,” “Blue and Gold,” and “The Secret Lagoon.” I am 100% not saying they are bad stories because they are amazing. I just wish I could choose from different stories every once in a while instead of hearing the same stories over and over again each night. I also wanted to speak about the pricing, it is a little too over priced, mind you, I’m only 15 and there would be no way I could ever pay that price without a card of some sort. I overall love the app, from the start the story to finish, this is absolutely one of the best sleep story and meditation app I have ever downloaded. 4 Stars since the pricing and locked stories.
Great app, but pricing is too much.
by Mikayla629 on 2018/03/08 07:04
I absolutely love this app. I have OCD and constantly struggle with anxiety. I’ve learned to deal with it better during the day, but at night, since I’m laying still, I have time to stop and think. Which turns into worrying and panic attacks. I usually take sleeping medicine for it, but then I started using the bedtime story part of the app, and it helped me to relax and fall asleep without having to take medication. Only thing is the pricing. I’m a college student and a part time nanny, and the pricing to unlock the full app is insane. I would love to continue to use the app since it’s helped me so much, but I only have to option of 3 stories to listen to, and it’s starting to drive me crazy I’ve heard them so much. Even though I love this app, I’m not using it anymore, and will probably delete it. If they could lower their prices to where more people have the option to use the full app, I think it could really flourish.
Way more helpful than expected - especially Masterclass
by cashinma on 2018/02/14 10:59
I bought this because I’m terrible at meditation and mindfulness. I needed something to keep me focused on my meditation. Initially, I struggled a bit with the voice of the person guiding the session, but once I got used to hearing her, it was much easier. Other people and other stories and classes sounded different. I use the daily calm almost every day. the lessons in the meditation so often are reinforcing what I’m learning and hearing in another part of my life. Very useful quotes at the end to remind me what the lesson was about. Often I will screenshot the quote and picture and share it with friends. I love the variety of sounds I can select and how there is a visual with each. I recently listened to the Breaking Bad Habits addiction class and really felt as though I was at a seminar for psychologists and neuroscientists. It was amazing what I learned. I have a daughter who is a neuroscience and psych major in college. I had to share it with her. I’ve also been stepping through the various meditations on self care, relationships, etc and those also have been enormously helpful. Sometimes my daughter can’t sleep so she listens to the stories on there. I love that there are classics mixed in with new ones I had never heard of. Best $60 bucks I’ve ever spent on an app like this. Thank you, Calm.
Can’t Believe It’s Worth It
by SnkTab on 2017/12/11 18:35
Never before believed in meditation. Downloaded Calm because I just wanted the nature sounds but ended up trying the 7 day free course. Amazing. Purchased a subscription right away. I can’t believe that I need this app. Expensive for my budget but it’s helped me so much on problems I never knew I had. I’m a digitally addicted recent father and it helped me through the previously mind-numbing chore of taking care of a 1yo. I was doing a good job but that didn’t mean I wasn’t screaming inside my head from boredom. It helped me be present rather than distracted because apparently I’m distracted by everything. Did not know this. Helped me not get upset over stupid things at work. Lessons my anxiety a little bit. Feature request, auto shut off. I’ve fallen asleep sometimes if at night and my phone died because app still running and my phone is my alarm.
Love the sleep stories- Updated
by Firefox9675 on 2018/01/10 08:19
Still love the app but wish they would add more sleep stories. Not meditations, not sleep music, but sleep stories. That is what helps me the most. I've emailed them twice to request more stories. The response has been that stories are added every week. But this is not true. It rotates between additions of sleep music, meditations and stories. So in truth, about one to two a month are added. If you have as big a problem as I do sleeping then the repitition of the same stories over and over becomes less effective. I've looked everywhere else for more stories but Calm is still the best for stories. I just wish they focused as much on the stories as they do on meditation. I have serious trouble sleeping, and the Calm sleep stories are a big help for me. I can listen to them and focus on the reader and my mind won't wander off like it always does to a million other things. Before I know it I'm asleep😊
Life changing
by crameranderson on 2019/02/01 04:42
This app has been really good for me. I’m a yoga guy so breathing focus was always kind of a forced thing. Tamara has taught me to be more relaxed with it and watch the natural changes. Then the silence where I wonder if my phone died but no she comes back..... for a guy whose mind is very hard to slow down she’s really helped me. The loving kindness and forgiveness practices are staples of mine. Just the 21 days of Calm meditations are so good that alone is worth the premium subscription. My wife and another female friend of ours thinks Tamara’s voice is annoying. I don’t. I think it’s soothing. I’m glad she doesn’t always introduce herself any more. That personalizing detracts from the meditation from the get go. She doesn’t need to advertise at the outset of a meditation. I would like to have other voices added to them but she is so very good I just hope she continues her good work. Thank you Tamara, you are truly amazing.
I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS BUT made sure to come and write a review on this one
by Moniiiiiiica on 2018/03/04 04:14
This app has changed my life. Her voice is so incredibly soothing and beautiful, there’s different time settings 2 mins 5 mins 10 minutes. My life is so insanely stressful and hectic the only thing keeping me sane are her breathing techniques. What I also love is she doesn’t talk about wacko weird topics, she gives beautiful life messages that you can carry with you through he day. I clicked the increase focus and it REALLY helped me stop the distractions that we’re wasting my time. I’ve had the app since Feb 9, today is March 3 and I have done over 4 hours of total meditation. I want to keep this app forever and worth every single penny I recommend this for EVERYONE to improve the quality of their life and to be able to decrease some of their stress. My body is at ease every time I finish a session whether it be 2 Mins or 20 mins
Well worth it
by alex212 on 2018/01/10 02:02
As someone that suffers from depression and anxiety, this app has worked wonders for me. I’d never given serious consideration to meditation, I always had it on my to do list, occasionally trying on my own for a few minutes. This app changed all that. After the first 12 minute meditation/lesson in anxiety at the end of a hectic and stressful day, the negative feelings melted right away. It also has soothing music for sleeping for when I’m suffering from insomnia, or even bedtime stories. Which makes me feel 6 years old saying, but feeling 6 for a little before bed is surprisingly awesome! It is pricey for an app subscription at $60 a year... but in my humble opinion, it’s well worth it if you suffer from anxiety like myself. That’s only $5 a month for some piece of mind. Have one less beer a month or save some other way, because this will be some of the best $60 you ever spent.
found calm and sleep!!!
by wccb14 on 2017/12/23 12:27
I never write reviews, but I have to share my positive experience and how life changing this app is. I was having issues with sleeping, which I have never encountered before. I would be exhausted and fall asleep at 7pm and wake up at 330am, unable to fall back to sleep. I went to the doctor for blood tests to see if i had any other physical issues that may be triggering the change in my sleep pattern and all tests came back negative. My doctor recommended to practice better sleep hygiene. I started using this app in the morning to meditate (10 min) and then use the sleep induced relaxation before bed. For 2 weeks now I have been able to get a full night sleep and feel more calm during the day. It takes practice and a willing to change, but this is the tool to use if you are ready and willing and want more calm and sleep in your daily life!
Calm yourself and Calm your soul.
by sophiapoo420 on 2017/09/04 22:08
I absolutely love, needed and highly recommend this app! Whether it's for small daily breathing exercises, soothing sounds for bedtime or meditation, this app helps guide you along a path of self recovery and starts the moment you click download. I have to say it has helped me with daily living. The bedtime stories and soothing sounds alone sold me but I love the daily calm meditations. I have been healing daily and recommend everyone try it. My daughter loves it to help her sleep and the guided meditation. She now is a very enlightened, leveled out ten year old and the meditation helps now with her hormonal and menstrual transition. I have to say everyone can benefit highly from it. The free demo is great to get your feet started and see how it helps before if you feel some doubt, but I doubt you will have any after you try it! Your soul will thank you! Calm yourself and Calm your soul.
