Calm App is so good & helpful to my daily lifestyle!
by Carla in Phoenix on 2019/02/17 16:53
The Calm App ability to give me a 10 minute meditation typically on a topic that is so helpful is very grounding for me. I LOVE the Nature Music & listen to it during the remaining portion of my quiet reading time too. Then, I do enjoy stretching with their “More” portion of the App. I also use the inspirational quotes in my mentoring of women. A very helpful and well-rounded App and easy to use.

One of the best meditation apps available.
NOT calm
by Comun. on 2019/02/17 16:09
This App has upset me. The opposite of what it’s goal is supposedly. It charged me $75 dollars when all I did was download it out of curiosity. I want a refund now. Thank you. And before the developer leaves an irritating suggestion to go to calm support, I have. All the website says is to go to apple for a refund and they refuse to refund me. So, their is no solution for the app tricking you into trying a free trial: only to charge you !75 dollars.
Great

Bait and switch

Nice bait and switch ploy, A**holes.
Wonderful
by RachelV303 on 2019/02/17 12:56
I used simple habit for nearly a year. The fundamental difference in my experience in the past week is the amount of time for actual meditation that’s built into each session. In simple habit the narration is so constant it’s difficult to simply sit and focus on the breath for awhile. Calm has a few minutes at a time that are allotted simply for this purpose. Thus far I have also found the actual narration more conducive to meditation and concentration. I’ll be going premium on this app. A definite win.
Amazing

Really
Money but Honey
by Merrimack06 on 2019/02/17 02:32
I just got this app and the first thing I notice is that you need to give 70 dollars to listen to an unlimited amount of stories per year . This is a reasonable amount but I’m young and before I waste 70 dollars I want to know if this app is worth it 100%. Just because the first story I listened to was good doesn’t mean they all will be so the only thing I would prefer is to add 2 or more stories and songs to the free option. Not free trial but “hey I just got it and before I do the seven day trial I want to listen to a couple stories.” And add a search button😂
Offer more without premium access

I’ve only had this app for two days and it’s helped me so much with my stress.The best decision I’ve ever made was downloading this app. It’s truly amazing. Except for the fact that you have to pay for the full package.
Everything requires a paid subscription.
by Chasland on 2019/02/16 15:26
Everything requires a paid subscription. The only thing free in the free edition is endless pages of “subscribe to unlock.”

$70 a year for a very small selection
by ZoeRene on 2019/02/16 09:37
I would think about paying for this to get the benefits it says you can acquire. And to reach my goals within my being. But there is such a small selection that if I listened to one story a night... I’d be done before a month was up. And I don’t even know if I’d like the stories... YouTube has unlimited free reading from people. A new story for everyday for the rest of your life FOR FREE. Why would someone ever pay for this when it’s free everywhere else. I’d pay if there was someone actually speaking directly to me or personal guides in meditation. But I can find these things everywhere. To me it’s not worth the cost.
Calming my Chaos!
by Deb#2but#1 on 2019/02/16 08:36
What a beautiful gift to the world this app is!!!! Going from turmultuousness to slow breathing and calm is a skill that is learned. Once you figure out how to dedicate time to yourself (which is the definite hard start?) you can go make to your “center”, your calm space, your happy place! Try it!!! You’ll love it!!
Screechy Voice
by Bengolly on 2019/02/16 07:16
I want to like this app. Parts are wonderful. What I don't like about it is the womans voice. I do not find her soothing at all. I would prefer a deeper slower calming voice to lull me into relaxation and meditation. I know I am probably in the minority here in my thoughts. But it is the way I feel. Hopefully in the future, there will be a varitey of voices to suit all tastes
Life changing!

Recently found out I have a medical issue that may be cancer. I went from having several panic attacks a day, not being able to function at work, waking up in the middle of the night terrified, to having maybe one (if any) panic attack a day. I have bad days but I reach for this app find a quite place and I find relief. I’m learning to be present and believing that I will be happy, healthy, and safe. Still waiting for a definitive diagnosis btw.

Calm is a prfet app it help kids sleep and clam down tack a nap sometimes it’s just right for your kids so that is whey is a great app. And you will always need t for your kids and sometims need it for the parings but always for the kids .from Lainey 😛🐶
Love it - just add friends!
by Mjt008 on 2019/02/16 01:00
I really love this app, and it is one of the only apps I am willing to pay for, but I would LOVE if a friends/social aspect could be added within the app. Much like how you can share stats automatically with friends using your Apple Watch (activity), being able to do that with Calm would be much appreciated, as would being able to then recommend certain meditations/sleep stories.

Put the phone down if you actually want to be stress free

watch out for free trial auto renew
by Danielle.is on 2019/02/15 23:00
I signed up for the free trial decided I didn’t like the app, just wasn’t for me but then they automatically signed me up for a one year subscription for 69.99! Now I can’t get out of it iTunes keeps telling me I don’t qualify for a refund! I AM CERTAINLY NOT CALM NOW!! 😡
Love this app!
by mzzerin on 2019/02/15 16:01
Have been using Calm to help my meditation practice for a couple years now and love it so much. Some of the scenes and sounds are so soothing and the author says just the right words in many of her mediations to help make me feel more at peace. I find that I craaaaave meditation everyday and can’t wait until I find my moments to do it. Thank you calm app!
Amazing app 😊
by fixkfidodydkdysdjdutsjfdhsj on 2019/02/15 15:54
Amazing app! The guided meditations help you release anger, cheer you up, relieve stress, find gratitude in life, or just is great way to begin your day! I don’t have Premium, but I still had a great experience with this app. I just wish that a few more Sleep Stories/music tracks were available without having to buy a subscription.
More free packs
by Eshep001 on 2019/02/15 12:40
I think that calm should have more free packs and should have one free pack a week it is a very calming app and I recommend it
Easy, Full of Options, and Relaxing!
by Mich Welling on 2019/02/15 09:30
Easy to navigate and use. There is a ton of good relaxing, free options for music and more. Love having the option to time it and sleep without having to worry about turning the music or audio off because it turns off automatically. Thanks for helping many nights of sleep! 🌙🖤
Cash ploy

Waste of time downloading. Not a free app
“We want money” in typical American fashion
by ed0985587 on 2019/02/15 07:32
Entire app is locked down and anything you click on wants you to pay $69.99 a year to unlock. This stresses me out!
Prices.
by Kayla.Chill on 2019/02/15 06:31
The prices are ridiculous! Just to fall asleep and or meditate I have to pay $12 to $400 dollars!? Doesn’t make sense what so ever!!
Best app ever!
by Amayris on 2019/02/15 04:54
This is so relaxing I just simply love it!
I love this app
by TGal#1 on 2019/02/15 04:20
I love this app so much. It helps me sleep and get rid of my anxiety and stress. But there are a few things that I say they should fix. I do not like the membership. They should at least do less things that are membership. Without the membership you can’t do anything basically and I don’t want to pay $70 a month for this. I hope when you read this you’ll understand what I mean. Thank you!
Can’t even use it
by fortnite should be shut down on 2019/02/15 04:07
I literally just got this for when I get anxiety or am having trouble sleeping. I saw one thing that doesn’t cost money and it did not help me sleep. All of the music is premium only, and I don’t have the money to spend on that every year. Get it if you want to waste your money on some songs that you could look up on YouTube every year.
Really sad
by Rachael117 on 2019/02/15 03:49
I’ve had calm for a few years now and I used to listen to stories and music and now I can’t listen to any of it for free. Everything has become premium only lately and there’s honestly no point in even having it anymore. I miss being able to change my song or listen to one of the guide/narrators for meditation and stories. Bring back free stuff!!
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.
Sorry but
by UnavailableName5 on 2019/02/15 01:47
Firstly, you say it's free, with in ad purchases, but after I finish giving my email (which is apparently required and I'm already feeling agitated by this "calming" app. now) you want me to 'try it free for 7 days then pay $69.99'!?!? So I'm like, oh well, I guess that's that! But I poked around for a minute and there are some things you can utilize without giving payment $ and doing that 'deal' BUT it will ask you every time to do it. Then after I play one short meditation you are already asking me to rate you?? That's like a restaurant asking for a yelp review when you've had half a bite of appetizer. So here's your review. ⭐️
Trash!
by Jeanny.D on 2019/02/14 23:56
Seriously trash!!! Could not have been more disappointed! How is it they advertise a free app and when you put in your personal info and have to accept push notifications in order to use app you then have to pay for premium to unlock everything! 👎🏼 I’ll stick to YouTube! Thanks but no thanks Calm!
Charged $74.89 for a subscription I didn’t request.
by ShanRyan on 2019/02/14 17:29
I downloaded free trial of this app & quickly decided it wasn’t for me. Fast forward a month or so and I see a charge on my iTunes account for $74.89 for a yearly subscription that I didn’t sign up for. Really angry, I don’t like being tricked into purchases.
Changed my life
by Sopbel on 2019/02/14 16:06
This is by far the best meditation app I’ve found. I’ve been using it daily for about 6 mo, and I have noticed a significant decrease in my anxiety & general emotional reactivity. I highly recommend!
Perfect app for teachers and students.
by coach Foringer on 2019/02/14 16:03
I am an elementary school teacher and I use this with a lot of my students who suffer from anxiety and depression and it works wonders. One of the best apps on the market!
Best meditation app
by Jazzzzzzmmmiiiinn on 2019/02/14 15:52
So, I got this app for sleep. My teacher mentioned the sleep stories. The sleep stories have totally helped me get to sleep faster. Once you get into the mind frame to listen it is my experience within 10-20 min you’re asleep. I actually now have explored the app more and the mediation part is awesome. I used to use another app that used a lot of cartoons to convey ideas but this app is more my style where people talk and you listen. Also, there’s a section for moving the body with videos. This is definitely the best app out there.
Great app for anxiety
by julianol96 on 2019/02/14 15:34
I recently got out of the military and was experiencing a lot of anxiety in my daily life and depression. This app no doubt saved me from my self. If you put in the work then you will see results. The guided meditations in the areas of loving kindness are my favorite. The voice that guides is soothing and it’s well worth the subscription. I highly recommend CALM for anyone who has some trauma they want to get over or anyone who just wants to generally self improve.
Not a lot of free content
by PeaceSeeker54 on 2019/02/14 15:32
It’s difficult to know how great this app is from the free meditations alone. Like other meditation apps, they bait you with scant free beginner meditations to get you to unlock content that you pay a monthly subscription for. There is very little free content, and what there is is just OK. In a 12 minute anxiety meditation, the first three minutes is a bunch of beginner blah blah about the benefits of meditation that I already know. Then you get into the meditation part. It is not compelling enough for me to want to pay more. They give you a seven day free trial and then start charging you. Typical free app that is simply a front for a subscription service.
Matthew McConaughey, the Sleep Whisperer!
by Furballs Forever! on 2019/02/14 15:32

I’ve been using Insight Timer for a while decided to give Calm a try. I simply like Insight Timer better. And did I mention it doesn’t cost $70? (Which I would’ve paid if I thought it was worth it.)
Awesome app

Very pleasantly surprised. This is a great app! A must try.
GREAT!!! Just one suggestion
by ColtontKro on 2019/02/14 13:22
I use this every night to go to sleep because I’m a high energy person and it calms me down. I love it. I know the app is called “Calm” but if you had “Wake Up” as a category to motivate me to get out of bed in the morning that’d be awesome. Fire me up lol.
What happened

Little frustrating
by 🤓🤷🏽‍♀️ on 2019/02/14 05:56
I love this app however there really isn’t much available without going to the Premium version like their was when I first got the app a year ago. It’s definitely disappointing that there’s so many different sessions, options, music available that are locked that I can’t open because of the price of 69.99$ I find that so expensive for an app.

by mlmyers1 on 2019/02/14 00:40
I love this calm app. I start my day with daily calm and I can’t believe how much I like it. I’ve never been into meditation but with some personal issues I’ve been dealing with I thought I’d give it a try. I am very surprised how my body and mind feel after these daily sessions. I love the insightful topics that goes along with these meditations. Most of these have quotes which I’ve never heard before and they truly are so fitting to life. I highly recommend this app for everyone
Little free content
by SuRaTex on 2019/02/13 21:39
The download is free. One 15 minute session on several options is free, but several of those minutes is spent telling you general information or long pointless stories not meditating. To even try the 7 day free option you must give a credit card. I guess they hope you forget and keep the charge even if you did not benefit from the 7 days. I can’t evaluate the meditation from the one free session on 7 days of calm. Not satisfied with thus business model.
Calm is saving me
by zaminah on 2019/02/13 21:35
I’m at the beginning of a divorce and calm is really helping me get through it. From the very first night listening to Mathew M. Reading me a bedtime story. Listening to the daily calm before I get out of bed and then the 7 days to calm anxiety. It has only been three weeks since my husband told me he wanted a divorce while I was away taking care of elderly parents. Without calm, I would be a basket case. Calm is teaching me to embrace feel and breathe through the pain. I am so grateful for Calm ! Thank you Cindy
Great meditations

Background sounds play even when paused. Even when I double tap the home button and close out the app. The sounds still play. App still crashes after I play a second sleep story. Never during the first one, always a couple minutes into the second one.
Changed my life!
by NatureSoundLover on 2019/02/13 17:01
After using Calm for over a year now, it has become one of my 3 most-used apps! Indispensable! I use it everyday and have become a lifetime member because I have seen the commitment to making that app and content better and better. Keep Calm 😊

Auto-charges you for a year
by elizabeth.sto on 2019/02/13 15:59
This app auto-renewed for a full year instead of a month, breaking my budget and leaving me... not calm. Why did they choose this setting? It’s not necessary to scam customers.

This app carried me through the darkest most anxious time in my life and helped me survive. I recommend it to anyone and everyone. I once recommended Calm to a woman who had struggled with severe insomnia for over 6 months. She was taking prescription medication for insomnia and still struggling. The day after she tried this app she came to me in tears because it was the first time she had truly slept in over 6 months! Powerful

Worth it
by Pixie567 on 2019/02/12 23:27
I never review but I am in love with this app. I used the free trial and decided I wanted to purchase the premium and they gave me 40% off for a year subscription. Great deal. I use it daily to keep anxiety and a busy mind at bay. The breathing and awareness meditation is a major plus for me. I even enjoy the scenes, sometimes I just put on the ocean or crickets and close my eyes and listen. It even has yoga for different times throughout the day to loosen tension. I just love it. 5 stars.

Cheeky little £**%#**
by Lapp87 on 2019/02/12 16:38
I’m afraid this review is more related to the subscription defaults than it is to the actual app- which I didn’t really use. I find my own way to meditate and find ‘Calm’. After having the app appear at the top of my App Store with the advertisement ‘apple rated’ and seeing a 7 day trial period, I signed up- it’s so easy to do this! I read ts&cs as I always do, and went on with my busy life- evidently getting punished for not using the app- as yesterday my bank and apple informed me I’d been charged $75.00 for an annual subscription! No warning, no way out (I’ve contacted both calm customer service- who to their credit gave me a response as to how to unsubscribe for my 2020 subscription and explained how this is really apple’s responsibility). No response beyond an automated one from apple. I come from Europe, where all contracts are subject to a 30 day cooling off period, and I’ve never been more aware of how consumers are protected from corporations over there than I am right now. I have no rights to dispute or claim anything back- just a big fat dent out of my monthly budget. If you decide to sign up for this app- set reminders for yourself to cancel- or better yet cancel straight away so you don’t get sucked in for a hefty fee without full consent. As far as the app goes- seems ok- as in it works and provides white noise. I have better free options. Noisili gives a lot of the rain, fire waterfall sounds for example. I didn’t really see what the fuss was about (not for the price they charge!!!).

Ive enjoyed the focus reminders and tips that this app has brought to my role of work in a fast paced company, and enable me to adapt to the ever changing world we live in of constant distractions and social media. Thank you!
expensive, no refund
by saj222222222 on 2019/02/12 14:24
It will automatically sign you up for the year subscription so if you miss it (and there is no real warning) when the trial period ends it will charge you $70 and not refund it. I'm stuck with this app that I don't really use for a whole year now. No way to get around customer service because it goes through apple. Maybe the app is good for some, but I'm not a huge fan of the voices so it doesn't work to well for me.

What a scam
by Erotichotx3 on 2019/02/12 12:18
I downloaded this app and was immediately asked to TRY the premium membership. After listening to the same TEN MINUTE guide over and over, I said what the heck and signed up for the TRIAL. None of the material after was any better than Day 1 so I went to cancel on the 6th day, before it would pull from my account. I looked everywhere (and I probably did take a screenshot of what happened bc I knew this would bite me in the tush) just to get a notice saying I DID NOT have a subscription to even cancel. For the next 5-7 days I got an alert on my iPhone saying my calm subscription couldn’t be renewed which I thought was great since I didn’t want it anyway. I went to the App Store and tried to remove my payment method and it wouldn’t let me change it to none so I just figured after two + weeks of my trial period being over AND my attempts at canceling it that it was resolved. NOPE. NADA. $76.99 was pulled out of my account nearly a month later, money I had put on that card to pay a bill online was immediately swiped for this wonky app. I tried to get a refund and GUESS WHAT?! It says the app devs don’t issue refunds contact iTunes. Guess what iTunes says? SORRY FOR YOUR LUCK, psa DONT GIVE THEM YOUR CARD INFO EVER. The ONLY thing I liked about this app was Day 1 of the sleep meditation and the breathing timer. I am warning you now, do not sign up for the trial unless you want to waste your money. Truly disappointed! Now I have to file a dispute with my card company because they won’t refund my money. This experience has been anything but relaxing!
It helps

This app really does help with sleeping and stress and anxiety especially meditation when I listen to their stories I feel like I’m in them and there is not a worry in my mind and just like that I’m able to sleep and with meditation it feels like like a weight has been lifted it feels like you’re in heaven

Calm
by NeilKLA on 2018/12/05 20:35
Calm has evolved in many ways that are clear to me having used the app from the start. The basic straight ahead mindfulness meditations are the real strength and hopefully that base will remain. Tamara Levitt is effective and engaging. I have some issues on occasion with the writing when it goes into personal stories straying from the meditation center. When people are quoted within a Daily Meditation “as so and do says” I think it would be good to identify in a word or two the orientation, who they are, as a point of reference. As it is done now it sounds like we should know who they. Also quotes from actors are odd. Sort of a “wait, what?” too trendy moment. If they ever quote Gwyneth Paltrow that would be unforgivable and the app should be deleted. I like the meditations listed as Other Teachers which are still there in the writing, delivery and content of another voice, mostly one person except for one I believe. The value is also in the heart of meditation focus. Calm has expanded the program overall and while I don’t use the Sleep Stories and other features, they are probably excellent and a good feature. The stories are spoken by a diverse group who seen appealing. Calm is good. Get it. Use basic meditations to rebalance in a crazy world. Explore the rest of you have time. I forget the original sounds composers name but his work was excellent. Hopefully still there. Get the app. They should give me a discount! Neil
Life changing
by boiler514 on 2018/01/22 12:33
I have been using Calm for about four years, since a time when I was suffering heavily from postpartum anxiety. My therapist recommended I try mindfulness, but I didn’t take her very seriously at first. Then I read a magazine article that recommended Calm and I decided to tried it. I am so thankful that I did. I have learned so much. This app has taught me to take a step back from my anxious thoughts and really examine them. It has also helped in situations where I was on the verge of panic. I have been able to pause, remind myself to breathe, and then I find it much easier to cope. The new Master Class series is fascinating. I have been using what I learned to recognize all sorts of habits I didn’t even realize were negative habits, like mindless social media, saying up late, procrastination, etc. I’ve been applying the lessons from that series and asking myself, “what am I really getting from this behavior?” Most times, that’s enough just to disenchant myself from the behavior and move on to a more positive experience. Thank you, Calm team, genuinely. This app has been an essential tool in helping pull me out of the darkness of postpartum anxiety, helping me fight daily my anxious tendencies, and has helped me be a better spouse, parent, and person. Keep up the awesome work!
Believe the hype

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.
It’s a money grab ploy!
by Kassiebunny on 2019/01/04 21:14
This is a bait and switch app. Offer a “free” version that is so limited that users are forced to commit to the “premium” almost immediately. This is a shoddy marketing ploy by greedy developers who have no faith their product can create a loyal following on its merit. Or, even worse, they just want to bilk as many people out of their hard earned cash as possible, before half of them realize this isn’t the program for them. It’s a shame because the app does appear to offer some good programming. I’m someone who would have been willing to purchase the premium version if the free version of the app had offered at least something useful, beyond a “7 day free trial”. Seriously, what is offered in the free version is so trivial that NO ONE would find it useful. Such greedy and sly business practices are not something I am willing to support regardless of what your “premium” programming has to offer. If the developers had been transparent about what they were offering I would be in support of this app. Instead you chose to benefit from being advertised and sorted in the marketplace as a “free” app, when your free version is just a glorified breathing app and calming sounds player. I have no intention of supporting a company that exemplifies the worst in Capitalism, greed over substance. I hope other consumers take this into consideration before even considering downloading this “free” app!
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.
Personal political views and name calling are not helpful!
by KmichealeBlue83541 on 2019/01/22 09:09
Reviews are not meant to post your political views! Go to a message board or twitter for that crap if u choose to belittle others personal beliefs! Reviews are to give your opinion on how the app performs compared to what it claims. And if u absolutely can’t keep your mouth closed, at the very least NEVER resort to name calling and hatred no matter what your stance. There is enough hate in this world and if you are one of those people I hope you continue to explore options so there is peace and serenity in your heart and soul, whether it be an app or a more one-on-one approach. I’m giving this a 3 star rating because it is expensive and it’s hard for me to navigate on it, but it has opened my eyes to other types of calming and meditation techniques. That is key for me because I meditate for different reasons in different settings but it all gets repetitive to me if I don’t use different techniques. There are positives and negatives to the app. The key is to read all the details, look up the price, read reviews that aren’t biased and decide for yourself. If you have questions after you’ve done your research, then find contact information, and ask specific questions you still have.
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.
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.
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.
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!”
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
♡ 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.
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.
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😊
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.
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.
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.

Calm App is so good & helpful to my daily lifestyle!
by Carla in Phoenix on 2019/02/17 16:53
The Calm App ability to give me a 10 minute meditation typically on a topic that is so helpful is very grounding for me. I LOVE the Nature Music & listen to it during the remaining portion of my quiet reading time too. Then, I do enjoy stretching with their “More” portion of the App. I also use the inspirational quotes in my mentoring of women. A very helpful and well-rounded App and easy to use.

NOT calm
by Comun. on 2019/02/17 16:09
This App has upset me. The opposite of what it’s goal is supposedly. It charged me $75 dollars when all I did was download it out of curiosity. I want a refund now. Thank you. And before the developer leaves an irritating suggestion to go to calm support, I have. All the website says is to go to apple for a refund and they refuse to refund me. So, their is no solution for the app tricking you into trying a free trial: only to charge you !75 dollars.

Nice bait and switch ploy, A**holes.
Wonderful
by RachelV303 on 2019/02/17 12:56
I used simple habit for nearly a year. The fundamental difference in my experience in the past week is the amount of time for actual meditation that’s built into each session. In simple habit the narration is so constant it’s difficult to simply sit and focus on the breath for awhile. Calm has a few minutes at a time that are allotted simply for this purpose. Thus far I have also found the actual narration more conducive to meditation and concentration. I’ll be going premium on this app. A definite win.

Money but Honey
by Merrimack06 on 2019/02/17 02:32
I just got this app and the first thing I notice is that you need to give 70 dollars to listen to an unlimited amount of stories per year . This is a reasonable amount but I’m young and before I waste 70 dollars I want to know if this app is worth it 100%. Just because the first story I listened to was good doesn’t mean they all will be so the only thing I would prefer is to add 2 or more stories and songs to the free option. Not free trial but “hey I just got it and before I do the seven day trial I want to listen to a couple stories.” And add a search button😂
Offer more without premium access

Everything requires a paid subscription.

$70 a year for a very small selection
by ZoeRene on 2019/02/16 09:37
I would think about paying for this to get the benefits it says you can acquire. And to reach my goals within my being. But there is such a small selection that if I listened to one story a night... I’d be done before a month was up. And I don’t even know if I’d like the stories... YouTube has unlimited free reading from people. A new story for everyday for the rest of your life FOR FREE. Why would someone ever pay for this when it’s free everywhere else. I’d pay if there was someone actually speaking directly to me or personal guides in meditation. But I can find these things everywhere. To me it’s not worth the cost.
Calming my Chaos!
by Deb#2but#1 on 2019/02/16 08:36
What a beautiful gift to the world this app is!!!! Going from turmultuousness to slow breathing and calm is a skill that is learned. Once you figure out how to dedicate time to yourself (which is the definite hard start?) you can go make to your “center”, your calm space, your happy place! Try it!!! You’ll love it!!
Screechy Voice
by Bengolly on 2019/02/16 07:16
I want to like this app. Parts are wonderful. What I don't like about it is the womans voice. I do not find her soothing at all. I would prefer a deeper slower calming voice to lull me into relaxation and meditation. I know I am probably in the minority here in my thoughts. But it is the way I feel. Hopefully in the future, there will be a varitey of voices to suit all tastes

Recently found out I have a medical issue that may be cancer. I went from having several panic attacks a day, not being able to function at work, waking up in the middle of the night terrified, to having maybe one (if any) panic attack a day. I have bad days but I reach for this app find a quite place and I find relief. I’m learning to be present and believing that I will be happy, healthy, and safe. Still waiting for a definitive diagnosis btw.

Love it - just add friends!
by Mjt008 on 2019/02/16 01:00
I really love this app, and it is one of the only apps I am willing to pay for, but I would LOVE if a friends/social aspect could be added within the app. Much like how you can share stats automatically with friends using your Apple Watch (activity), being able to do that with Calm would be much appreciated, as would being able to then recommend certain meditations/sleep stories.

I signed up for the free trial decided I didn’t like the app, just wasn’t for me but then they automatically signed me up for a one year subscription for 69.99! Now I can’t get out of it iTunes keeps telling me I don’t qualify for a refund! I AM CERTAINLY NOT CALM NOW!! 😡
Love this app!
by mzzerin on 2019/02/15 16:01
Have been using Calm to help my meditation practice for a couple years now and love it so much. Some of the scenes and sounds are so soothing and the author says just the right words in many of her mediations to help make me feel more at peace. I find that I craaaaave meditation everyday and can’t wait until I find my moments to do it. Thank you calm app!
Amazing app 😊
by fixkfidodydkdysdjdutsjfdhsj on 2019/02/15 15:54
Amazing app! The guided meditations help you release anger, cheer you up, relieve stress, find gratitude in life, or just is great way to begin your day! I don’t have Premium, but I still had a great experience with this app. I just wish that a few more Sleep Stories/music tracks were available without having to buy a subscription.
More free packs
by Eshep001 on 2019/02/15 12:40
I think that calm should have more free packs and should have one free pack a week it is a very calming app and I recommend it

This is so relaxing I just simply love it!
I love this app
by TGal#1 on 2019/02/15 04:20
I love this app so much. It helps me sleep and get rid of my anxiety and stress. But there are a few things that I say they should fix. I do not like the membership. They should at least do less things that are membership. Without the membership you can’t do anything basically and I don’t want to pay $70 a month for this. I hope when you read this you’ll understand what I mean. Thank you!
Can’t even use it
by fortnite should be shut down on 2019/02/15 04:07
I literally just got this for when I get anxiety or am having trouble sleeping. I saw one thing that doesn’t cost money and it did not help me sleep. All of the music is premium only, and I don’t have the money to spend on that every year. Get it if you want to waste your money on some songs that you could look up on YouTube every year.
Really sad
by Rachael117 on 2019/02/15 03:49
I’ve had calm for a few years now and I used to listen to stories and music and now I can’t listen to any of it for free. Everything has become premium only lately and there’s honestly no point in even having it anymore. I miss being able to change my song or listen to one of the guide/narrators for meditation and stories. Bring back free stuff!!
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.
Sorry but
by UnavailableName5 on 2019/02/15 01:47
Firstly, you say it's free, with in ad purchases, but after I finish giving my email (which is apparently required and I'm already feeling agitated by this "calming" app. now) you want me to 'try it free for 7 days then pay $69.99'!?!? So I'm like, oh well, I guess that's that! But I poked around for a minute and there are some things you can utilize without giving payment $ and doing that 'deal' BUT it will ask you every time to do it. Then after I play one short meditation you are already asking me to rate you?? That's like a restaurant asking for a yelp review when you've had half a bite of appetizer. So here's your review. ⭐️
Trash!
by Jeanny.D on 2019/02/14 23:56
Seriously trash!!! Could not have been more disappointed! How is it they advertise a free app and when you put in your personal info and have to accept push notifications in order to use app you then have to pay for premium to unlock everything! 👎🏼 I’ll stick to YouTube! Thanks but no thanks Calm!
Charged $74.89 for a subscription I didn’t request.
by ShanRyan on 2019/02/14 17:29
I downloaded free trial of this app & quickly decided it wasn’t for me. Fast forward a month or so and I see a charge on my iTunes account for $74.89 for a yearly subscription that I didn’t sign up for. Really angry, I don’t like being tricked into purchases.
Changed my life
by Sopbel on 2019/02/14 16:06

Perfect app for teachers and students.

I am an elementary school teacher and I use this with a lot of my students who suffer from anxiety and depression and it works wonders. One of the best apps on the market!
Best meditation app
by Jazzzzzzmmmiiiinn on 2019/02/14 15:52
So, I got this app for sleep. My teacher mentioned the sleep stories. The sleep stories have totally helped me get to sleep faster. Once you get into the mind frame to listen it is my experience within 10-20 min you’re asleep. I actually now have explored the app more and the mediation part is awesome. I used to use another app that used a lot of cartoons to convey ideas but this app is more my style where people talk and you listen. Also, there’s a section for moving the body with videos. This is definitely the best app out there.
Great app for anxiety
by julianol96 on 2019/02/14 15:34
I recently got out of the military and was experiencing a lot of anxiety in my daily life and depression. This app no doubt saved me from my self. If you put in the work then you will see results. The guided meditations in the areas of loving kindness are my favorite. The voice that guides is soothing and it’s well worth the subscription. I highly recommend CALM for anyone who has some trauma they want to get over or anyone who just wants to generally self improve.
Not a lot of free content
by PeaceSeeker54 on 2019/02/14 15:32
It’s difficult to know how great this app is from the free meditations alone. Like other meditation apps, they bait you with scant free beginner meditations to get you to unlock content that you pay a monthly subscription for. There is very little free content, and what there is is just OK. In a 12 minute anxiety meditation, the first three minutes is a bunch of beginner blah blah about the benefits of meditation that I already know. Then you get into the meditation part. It is not compelling enough for me to want to pay more. They give you a seven day free trial and then start charging you. Typical free app that is simply a front for a subscription service.

GREAT!!! Just one suggestion
by ColtontKro on 2019/02/14 13:22
I use this every night to go to sleep because I’m a high energy person and it calms me down. I love it. I know the app is called “Calm” but if you had “Wake Up” as a category to motivate me to get out of bed in the morning that’d be awesome. Fire me up lol.

I love this app however there really isn’t much available without going to the Premium version like their was when I first got the app a year ago. It’s definitely disappointing that there’s so many different sessions, options, music available that are locked that I can’t open because of the price of 69.99$ I find that so expensive for an app.

by mlmyers1 on 2019/02/14 00:40
I love this calm app. I start my day with daily calm and I can’t believe how much I like it. I’ve never been into meditation but with some personal issues I’ve been dealing with I thought I’d give it a try. I am very surprised how my body and mind feel after these daily sessions. I love the insightful topics that goes along with these meditations. Most of these have quotes which I’ve never heard before and they truly are so fitting to life. I highly recommend this app for everyone
Little free content
by SuRaTex on 2019/02/13 21:39
The download is free. One 15 minute session on several options is free, but several of those minutes is spent telling you general information or long pointless stories not meditating. To even try the 7 day free option you must give a credit card. I guess they hope you forget and keep the charge even if you did not benefit from the 7 days. I can’t evaluate the meditation from the one free session on 7 days of calm. Not satisfied with thus business model.
Calm is saving me
by zaminah on 2019/02/13 21:35
I’m at the beginning of a divorce and calm is really helping me get through it. From the very first night listening to Mathew M. Reading me a bedtime story. Listening to the daily calm before I get out of bed and then the 7 days to calm anxiety. It has only been three weeks since my husband told me he wanted a divorce while I was away taking care of elderly parents. Without calm, I would be a basket case. Calm is teaching me to embrace feel and breathe through the pain. I am so grateful for Calm ! Thank you Cindy

Background sounds play even when paused. Even when I double tap the home button and close out the app. The sounds still play. App still crashes after I play a second sleep story. Never during the first one, always a couple minutes into the second one.

Auto-charges you for a year
by elizabeth.sto on 2019/02/13 15:59
This app auto-renewed for a full year instead of a month, breaking my budget and leaving me... not calm. Why did they choose this setting? It’s not necessary to scam customers.

I once recommended Calm to a woman who had struggled with severe insomnia for over 6 months. She was taking prescription medication for insomnia and still struggling. The day after she tried this app she came to me in tears because it was the first time she had truly slept in over 6 months! Powerful

Worth it
by Pixie567 on 2019/02/12 23:27
I never review but I am in love with this app. I used the free trial and decided I wanted to purchase the premium and they gave me 40% off for a year subscription. Great deal. I use it daily to keep anxiety and a busy mind at bay. The breathing and awareness meditation is a major plus for me. I even enjoy the scenes, sometimes I just put on the ocean or crickets and close my eyes and listen. It even has yoga for different times throughout the day to loosen tension. I just love it. 5 stars.

Cheeky little £**%#**
by Lapp87 on 2019/02/12 16:38
I’m afraid this review is more related to the subscription defaults than it is to the actual app- which I didn’t really use. I find my own way to meditate and find ‘Calm’. After having the app appear at the top of my App Store with the advertisement ‘apple rated’ and seeing a 7 day trial period, I signed up- it’s so easy to do this! I read ts&cs as I always do, and went on with my busy life- evidently getting punished for not using the app- as yesterday my bank and apple informed me I’d been charged $75.00 for an annual subscription! No warning, no way out (I’ve contacted both calm customer service- who to their credit gave me a response as to how to unsubscribe for my 2020 subscription and explained how this is really apple’s responsibility). No response beyond an automated one from apple. I come from Europe, where all contracts are subject to a 30 day cooling off period, and I’ve never been more aware of how consumers are protected from corporations over there than I am right now. I have no rights to dispute or claim anything back- just a big fat dent out of my monthly budget. If you decide to sign up for this app- set reminders for yourself to cancel- or better yet cancel straight away so you don’t get sucked in for a hefty fee without full consent. As far as the app goes- seems ok- as in it works and provides white noise. I have better free options. Noisili gives a lot of the rain, fire waterfall sounds for example. I didn’t really see what the fuss was about (not for the price they charge!!!).

Ive enjoyed the focus reminders and tips that this app has brought to my role of work in a fast paced company, and enable me to adapt to the ever changing world we live in of constant distractions and social media. Thank you!
expensive, no refund
by saj222222222 on 2019/02/12 14:24
It will automatically sign you up for the year subscription so if you miss it (and there is no real warning) when the trial period ends it will charge you $70 and not refund it. I'm stuck with this app that I don't really use for a whole year now. No way to get around customer service because it goes through apple. Maybe the app is good for some, but I'm not a huge fan of the voices so it doesn't work to well for me.

What a scam
by Erotichotx3 on 2019/02/12 12:18
I downloaded this app and was immediately asked to TRY the premium membership. After listening to the same TEN MINUTE guide over and over, I said what the heck and signed up for the TRIAL. None of the material after was any better than Day 1 so I went to cancel on the 6th day, before it would pull from my account. I looked everywhere (and I probably did take a screenshot of what happened bc I knew this would bite me in the tush) just to get a notice saying I DID NOT have a subscription to even cancel. For the next 5-7 days I got an alert on my iPhone saying my calm subscription couldn’t be renewed which I thought was great since I didn’t want it anyway. I went to the App Store and tried to remove my payment method and it wouldn’t let me change it to none so I just figured after two + weeks of my trial period being over AND my attempts at canceling it that it was resolved. NOPE. NADA. $76.99 was pulled out of my account nearly a month later, money I had put on that card to pay a bill online was immediately swiped for this wonky app. I tried to get a refund and GUESS WHAT?! It says the app devs don’t issue refunds contact iTunes. Guess what iTunes says? SORRY FOR YOUR LUCK, psa DONT GIVE THEM YOUR CARD INFO EVER. The ONLY thing I liked about this app was Day 1 of the sleep meditation and the breathing timer. I am warning you now, do not sign up for the trial unless you want to waste your money. Truly disappointed! Now I have to file a dispute with my card company because they won’t refund my money. This experience has been anything but relaxing!
It helps

This app really does help with sleeping and stress and anxiety especially meditation when I listen to their stories I feel like I’m in them and there is not a worry in my mind and just like that I’m able to sleep and with meditation it feels like like a weight has been lifted it feels like you’re in heaven

Calm
by NeilKLA on 2018/12/05 20:35
Calm has evolved in many ways that are clear to me having used the app from the start. The basic straight ahead mindfulness meditations are the real strength and hopefully that base will remain. Tamara Levitt is effective and engaging. I have some issues on occasion with the writing when it goes into personal stories straying from the meditation center. When people are quoted within a Daily Meditation “as so and do says” I think it would be good to identify in a word or two the orientation, who they are, as a point of reference. As it is done now it sounds like we should know who they. Also quotes from actors are odd. Sort of a “wait, what?” too trendy moment. If they ever quote Gwyneth Paltrow that would be unforgivable and the app should be deleted. I like the meditations listed as Other Teachers which are still there in the writing, delivery and content of another voice, mostly one person except for one I believe. The value is also in the heart of meditation focus. Calm has expanded the program overall and while I don’t use the Sleep Stories and other features, they are probably excellent and a good feature. The stories are spoken by a diverse group who seen appealing. Calm is good. Get it. Use basic meditations to rebalance in a crazy world. Explore the rest of you have time. I forget the original sounds composers name but his work was excellent. Hopefully still there. Get the app. They should give me a discount! Neil
Life changing
by boiler514 on 2018/01/22 12:33
I have been using Calm for about four years, since a time when I was suffering heavily from postpartum anxiety. My therapist recommended I try mindfulness, but I didn’t take her very seriously at first. Then I read a magazine article that recommended Calm and I decided to tried it. I am so thankful that I did. I have learned so much. This app has taught me to take a step back from my anxious thoughts and really examine them. It has also helped in situations where I was on the verge of panic. I have been able to pause, remind myself to breathe, and then I find it much easier to cope. The new Master Class series is fascinating. I have been using what I learned to recognize all sorts of habits I didn’t even realize were negative habits, like mindless social media, saying up late, procrastination, etc. I’ve been applying the lessons from that series and asking myself, “what am I really getting from this behavior?” Most times, that’s enough just to disenchant myself from the behavior and move on to a more positive experience. Thank you, Calm team, genuinely. This app has been an essential tool in helping pull me out of the darkness of postpartum anxiety, helping me fight daily my anxious tendencies, and has helped me be a better spouse, parent, and person. Keep up the awesome work!
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.
It’s a money grab ploy!
by Kassiebunny on 2019/01/04 21:14
This is a bait and switch app. Offer a “free” version that is so limited that users are forced to commit to the “premium” almost immediately. This is a shoddy marketing ploy by greedy developers who have no faith their product can create a loyal following on its merit. Or, even worse, they just want to bilk as many people out of their hard earned cash as possible, before half of them realize this isn’t the program for them. It’s a shame because the app does appear to offer some good programming. I’m someone who would have been willing to purchase the premium version if the free version of the app had offered at least something useful, beyond a “7 day free trial”. Seriously, what is offered in the free version is so trivial that NO ONE would find it useful. Such greedy and sly business practices are not something I am willing to support regardless of what your “premium” programming has to offer. If the developers had been transparent about what they were offering I would be in support of this app. Instead you chose to benefit from being advertised and sorted in the marketplace as a “free” app, when your free version is just a glorified breathing app and calming sounds player. I have no intention of supporting a company that exemplifies the worst in Capitalism, greed over substance. I hope other consumers take this into consideration before even considering downloading this “free” app!
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.
Personal political views and name calling are not helpful!
by KmichealeBlue83541 on 2019/01/22 09:09
Reviews are not meant to post your political views! Go to a message board or twitter for that crap if u choose to belittle others personal beliefs! Reviews are to give your opinion on how the app performs compared to what it claims. And if u absolutely can’t keep your mouth closed, at the very least NEVER resort to name calling and hatred no matter what your stance. There is enough hate in this world and if you are one of those people I hope you continue to explore options so there is peace and serenity in your heart and soul, whether it be an app or a more one-on-one approach. I’m giving this a 3 star rating because it is expensive and it’s hard for me to navigate on it, but it has opened my eyes to other types of calming and meditation techniques. That is key for me because I meditate for different reasons in different settings but it all gets repetitive to me if I don’t use different techniques. There are positives and negatives to the app. The key is to read all the details, look up the price, read reviews that aren’t biased and decide for yourself. If you have questions after you’ve done your research, then find contact information, and ask specific questions you still have.
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.
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.
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.
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!”
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
♡ 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.
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.
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😊
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.
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.
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.
