Connectivity problems, variable effectiveness

I'm a paid subscriber. Like many other reviewers have mentioned there have been connectivity issues for a while now. I've had issues with downloading at least 25% of the time. I have used it for sleep. It doesn't seem to be super effective, and having earplugs in for hours can be uncomfortable. I have listened to some binaural beats that were more effective. The focus track seem more effective for me, but I have also had good results just focusing with electronic music without headphones and with binaural beats, with headphones. I've only tried the meditation once but it seemed fairly effective. I like that they have both guided and unguided. The app has some bugs, and there are some things that I find confusing that don't seem to be explained. I've submitted a lot of messages through their 'feedback'. Never received a reply. There is no easy way within the app to contact them. There also seems to be no way within the app to cancel my subscription, which I want to do now because it's not working reliably, citing connectivity issues when nothing else is having problems. I think it has potential, but way too many issues for a paid subscription app.

Great for working in large open office plans

I use brain fm primarily at work when I need to get involved in some deep focus heads down work and tune out all of the activity around me (open office plan with about 50 busy colleagues chatting, moving, and meeting all around me). The focus playlists really do an amazing job of helping to drown out all the noise around me without distracting me like music can. White noise always missed the mark for me, but this is perfect. I’ve also listened to the relax playlists when I’m heading to work or winding down after or preping to go into an upcoming meeting that I know will be stressful. Definitely helps get me in a better headspace. And lastly I use the focus or relax playlists also when reading on my commute to drown out passenger and traffic noises (on bus or train). The one failing is the downloadable function which rarely works to allow you play offline.

Fantastic for Focus and Sleep Alike

I’m extremely happy I found this app. I used to just use calming songs through Apple Music to study with my noise cancelling headphones, but since downloading this app, for studying I largely don’t use anything else. I never realized how much background playlists like “nightsounds” and “thunder” helped until I had the chance to use it. It’s extremely less distracting than music (which I would usually need to play quietly) and generally seems to perform better at keeping me focused (I can keep the volume higher so noise cancelling is more effective).

But not only that, the “recharge” playlist is super useful for times where you know you need a nap (as it’d be beneficial) but you just can’t get comfortable enough or relaxed enough to sleep (or at least it’s helpful for me).

The only thing I wish is that all of the playlists had options for unlimited streaming (no timer) rather than mandatorily needing to choose a timer only to have to restart the playlist again when the timer runs out. This is a tad bit frustrating, as it’s rather abrupt to suddenly have the streaming end when one isn’t expecting it. But, overall, it’s not a dealbreaker.

Overall, worth the download and purchase of the subscription, and I’m glad I found this app.
