Description

“As a nurse I have told my patients about this wonderful option for insomnia!” (Review) -- Drift off to sleep and sleep more deeply with a wide variety of guided meditations. Create your own sleep program using a Playlist feature which allows you to listen to up to six meditations in one session. Listen voice alone or voice with music or nature sounds, choosing how long the background will continue after the voice guidance stops. If you prefer to listen to music or nature sounds alone, a Sound Mix feature allows you to listen to a combination of music plus a nature sound, or two nature sounds together.

“This beats any chemical sleep aids hands down.” (Review)

Just one suggestion

I've been using this app for about 1 1/2 years. Recently I went a couple of months without using it. I found it much more difficult to fall asleep. So, I've gone back to it.
In the tips to using the app, they do tell you that it's not necessary to hear every word or phrase; that you will hear what you need to hear. The problem I have is impaired hearing. I keep my phone at it's loudest when I'm not using my hearing aids, and can't hear it ring when it's nearby.
Naturally, I don't wear them when I sleep. I can't make out any of the words spoken on the app, even with my phone volume and the app volume on high, especially if I have one ear facing into the pillow. I don't have a problem hearing the music.
If I could add something to my wish list, it would be to have the ability to increase the app sounds. I find it somewhat adequate and soothing to still here the low sound of a voice in the background, but it would be awfully nice to hear a few words.
That's why I gave it five stars. Nothing is perfect, in a less than perfect world. This, of course, is not the only app to not consider the needs of people with particular disabilities. Perhaps, it can be the first one to address that problem.

Great quality

I've always been a night owl, so when it's time to sleep it can be hard, normally it can take me about an hour, sometimes two. But, with the help of this app I can finally sleep in just a few minutes and sleep restfully without any tossing or turning. I've tried random meditations from websites, but they soon get old and don't have the same effect after a few nights. This app is the opposite, it has so many great quality meditations to choose from. I've used this app for almost a year and plan to for years to come. So, even though it might cost a bit, it is definitely worth it and I highly suggest downloading it!

Really helps me sleep

I've had insomnia for years and when I tried this app I was surprised that it really helped me to sleep. (It even helped me to sleep on a long transatlantic flight, which was great!)
Mary has a beautiful soothing voice that is very calming and I like that I can put the music on an endless loop. It wasn't too pricey but I do wish they would add a few more tracks to the app so you could switch around more... overall, it's very much worth the money.
