Ratings and Reviews
Happy as a clam.
Actually, I don't know if clams are happy. But i know that I like this app even though, oddly enough, I am a long-experienced meditator. The guide's comments make me smile in recognition, and I like the interface and music, to boot.
Update: now I'm happier than a clam. This ap has become a daily companion for weeks now. I really appreciate it.
Second update: clams now seem dour, by comparison. I have used this for months and like it even more now than I did when i first reviewed it.
Third update: bless the clams, and guide them gently to serenity. I have apparently owned this for over a year now and still use it regularly. Indeed, it comes out when I'm getting tired and need a quick recharge. Like a few minutes ago. After working for hours.
Fourth update: By now I've owned this for several years, and still use it often. My meditation practice has continued to grow, to the point that I once (but only once, so far) actually reached the first Jhana ... although I'm not sure I spelled that correctly, and no clam can tell me! Yet, I still like and use this app. to get refreshed. The narrator seems a splendid guide.
This was one of my all time favorite apps. I used it for years. Literally. It put me on the path to real meditation. Not self help but true meditation. Unfortunately the app stopped working about 3 months ago. I downloaded it again. Yes paid again. Yes. This app is that good and it still would not work. Sad face. If you download this and it works you will be ver happy!
Would be nice if it worked
The primary app to help you learn to meditate doesn't even play. Pressed play about a hundred times. Still nothing. Restart, nothing. Re download, nothing. Good thing I paid money.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
