"Let the voice-guided Simply Being app talk you through a relaxing 5- to 30-minute meditation session. 'Other apps offer pretty nature sounds but no instruction, which left me bored,' a tester said. 'With the voice guidance, five minutes of meditation flew by.'" Self Magazine, April 2011

Improved new nature sounds from award winning recordist Gordon Hempton. Added two additional music choices. Added 30 minute guided meditation.
Fabulous meditation app
Great for both new and practised meditators, clear sound and gentle voice. Really useful to have a choice of lengths of meditations as well as choice of music; plus the extension of music at the end of the vocal guidance. I've tried a few apps and it's definitely one of the best available. I lead a meditation group and recommend it to everyone for its simplicity and help in creating then maintaining a regular meditation practice.
Love it !!!!!
My other half gave me a subscription to Natural Health Magazine and this app was featured so I thought let's give it a go ...... OMG I love it just tried my first 5 mins and feel good ! Just got out of hospital and really need time to relax and be good to myself. Relaxation is so important to all of us and the ones who say they don't probably need it more than the ones that say they do !!!! Try it and enjoy xx
soothing app to go to sleep to
This is the perfect app to go to sleep to I find when there is some background noise and you want distraction as well as a soothing voice. The relaxation instructions of varying lengths are helpful depending on how you are feeling. The music continuing at the end is great as you're not suddenly woken by it coming to a halt but, can sleep straight through.
