ALMOST a Full Five Stars, except for...


Only two little things keep this from being the best FIVE-Plus Star App ever!
The first thing is the same thing that other reviewers have said, we need to be able to find our bookmarked items quickly and easily. That should be a no-brainer, however, I cannot even find where all my bookmarks are, (another reviewer said hers were all together in one place) but I haven’t found it.
Secondly, (also mentioned before by others) is being able to pause and go back a little bit, like when you’ve been interrupted, like we all are from time to time. It’s beyond frustrating to be half way through an hour long recording and you missed something the teacher was saying, but you can’t go backwards and have to start all over again 😤.... or stop the recording and forget about it altogether. You have to agree that is beyond counterproductive, talk about being stressed out!
However, I did give you five stars (truthfully more like 4.5 stars), because you have the most amazing content with SO MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF CONTENT, and best of all, ITS FREE❣️. I have read about the things you have planned for 2018 to help raise money for your app, and as long as it doesn’t cut any of the free content down that you have now, I think it will be great. Just please correct those two issues I mentioned, and please tell me where I can find all my bookmarks?

Hi Sheras - Thanks for the great rating. To access your bookmarks: Select the Headphones icon and tap on 'My Library' (Top right). The good news is we're soon to release a fast forward / rewind function. If you have any further enquiries please don't hesitate to get in touch with our team via (not .com). Many thanks.

What a resource!!


I initially downloaded this app for the timer - a nice variety of authentic sounding bowls, blocks, and chimes. Fast forward four years and I'm continually blown away by the incredible amount and quality of the guided meditation content now available here! All for free!! With new recordings arriving each day, there's everything from basic breath work and mindfulness practices, to creative visualization and hypnotherapy, Yoga Nidra, meditations on specific topics (I've noticed everything from improving your ball game to having a healthy pregnancy!), children's meditations, meditations in a variety of foreign languages, music, and spiritual talks. While most of the offerings seem to be pretty secular, there are some which might appeal more specifically to people with backgrounds in Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and probably other religions as well. There's everything from world renown spiritual leaders to up and coming teachers from around the world. I've found some real gems here and have bookmarked many more than I'll probably ever get to as I keep coming back to some favorites. I haven't gotten into the social aspect of this app, but that is also there for people who want that. I do enjoy seeing the charts of my practice over time and feel more centered and able to cope with life as I enjoy realizing the personal goals I've set. Thank you!!

The BEST meditation app there is!


I've been through quite a few meditation apps, but Insight Timer is by far the best and the one I've been using consistently for months now and plan to continue using. Unlike other apps that only feature their own meditations or require you to pay to access all of them, Insight Timer allows users to upload their own meditations and there is an enormous catalog with more added each day. Also, you can choose from the amount of time to the category of meditation you want and see/leave ratings and reviews on anything. As if this weren't great enough, it also has the best meditation timer I've seen in any app. Set any amount of time or infinite time, add the bell of your choice from one to three times, beginning and/or end and/or intervals. AND beyond these wonderful things, it offers groups to enter for support or kind messages, and it logs your progress! It's so great to be able to see how many days consecutively you've meditated and for me this is a huge motivator not to miss a day. It's also interesting to see your days and weeks compared and how much time total you've spent on the timer vs guided meditations. Recommend this app to anyone and everyone who enjoys being relaxed and grounded!(I.e. Every human being)
