Great Content For Practitioners
Update After complaining about the downloadable content not being accessible, a few days passed and the content began to work properly. I am assuming it was a backend issue with their servers as the app didn’t need an update to work properly. They’ve got my subscription. Original - 1 Star I downloaded the app and wanted to try out the free content before making the decision to purchase a subscription. After I download a track, I attempt to play the file and an alert controller as presented showing that the downloaded content was out of date and requires the file to be updated. So then it takes me back out to the original screen where I could download the file again. This logic loop continues no matter how many times I read download the track. I attempted to send an email to support through their website and have yet to hear a reply. I attempted to send a message inside the app to support, but the send button is disabled. Now I am resorting to leaving a bad review in the App Store in hopes of actually getting the issue resolved. Once the issue is resolved, I will be more than happy to update my review.
Tried many, this is the best.
I have tried many apps for meditation and anxiety refocusing techniques. Most were given to me as suggestions from psychiatrists and behavioral health specialists. The stuff they gave me was ok when in a pinch, but nothing I would stick to. This app is on a whole other level. I am relaxed in such a way that once I start a meditation it’s almost as if I have floated off into some peaceful dream as my anxiety melts away. I was disappointed on day 1 to see that there was a fee section, but for full access to most of the meditations there is a fee. But after a week or so I’m sold. I find more peace and reflection doing these than in any office sessions. (Though that is in no way me advising anyone to use this app in lieu of medical and psychological interventions you may already use. This would be a wonderful compliment to any treatment.) If you have no issues and just want to get into meditating try the free version for a bit. I believe it will become something you enjoy doing every day. Wonderful app!
The best meditation app ever
I have been using Meditation Studio of a long time, maybe three years? Ever since Gaiam hyperlinked it to their website. I have tried a few others (Headspace), what I love about Meditation Studio is 1) Many choices for teachers... I am an aural person, I love hearing someones voice, the quality of their voice, and how just the sound of the voice can be soothing. The recording quality is excellent. It feels like the person is sitting right next to you. 2) Variety - both short and long meditations from a minute or two to more than 30 minutes. Sometimes you really need and only have time for a few minutes meditation. 3) Many topics - the most important to me, and why I keep returning to this app, some of the meditations are more like coaching sessions— geared towards moving through difficult or stressful moments in life. Its not only about “clear your mind” from distraction, but equally important to help when emotion is in the way.
I’ve loved this app for the last year. I remember being hesitant to start meditating but for any beginners out there who want to start (or even any seasoned meditators) this app is great! It has a wide variety of every meditation and each meditation ranges from 2 minutes to an hour, so even the busiest of us can take time out of our day to meditate with this app. The addition of the subscription hasn’t stopped any of the originals from still being available; if you’d like to pay, you can, and there’d be even more for you to enjoy. I personally cannot, as much as I would love to, but for anyone thinking that it would stop you from using or loving this app, it doesn’t. Many of the meditations are still available for downloading and using, you can customize what sounds (if any) you want in the background or what to hear when the meditation ends, and overall, I would just highly recommend it!
Helpful Tool for Becoming More Present
I experienced a couple panic attacks for the first time in my life a month ago. I also have been learning to manage anxiety and worry for the first time in my 28 years of life. Meditation Studio has been instrumental in helping me develop my mindfulness and meditation practice, which has helped me through some challenging moments of anxiety and worry. While it is not a cure all, Meditation Studio is a powerful tool well worth its price. It is easy to use and one of my favorite functions is the ability to choose different background music or sounds. Even when I learn to manage the anxiety I am experiencing much better than I currently do, I will continue using Meditation Studio as daily practice for a range of purposes like stress, gratitude, compassion, sleep, and more. I highly recommend this app for anyone interested in becoming more present and those who might experience anxiety and worry.
I love this app!
I have Miniere’s Disease which for me is often triggered by severe stress (I’m a 20 something female small business owner - I experience a lot of stress). Miniere’s has no cure, and hardly any treatments, but meditation has been THE #1 thing that keeps my episodes at bay. I needed an app that would be easy to use as straight forward and Meditation Studio is that for me. There’s a yearly subscription fee (really minimal) but I use this app multiple times a day so I’m happy to pay and I definitely get my money’s worth a thousand times over. Meditation is so important for so many reasons, but my episodes have literally stopped since seriously taking up meditation 6 months ago. Thanks to this app, I have easy access to simple and quick meditations all day every day. Last thing: this app puts me to bed every single night - a 5 minute “relax before bed” meditation knocks me out and it is blissful!
Bug fixed, support is very helpful
I'm updating my review. When I first downloaded the app, I subscribed but then had a problem accessing the content and left a bad review. I emailed support, and they got back to me within a couple of hours. They couldn't have been nicer, and they said there was a bug they were aware of, which they were working on, and apologized for the inconvenience. The very next day the bug was fixed. Even if it had taken longer, just the fact that they were so prompt and nice about it meant a lot, and made me feel good about the app. So far I've only done a couple of the meditations, but they were great, so looking forward to the new content I just unlocked. Also, their monthly plan is cheaper than Headspace, so I may end up ditching Headspace and just doing this one. This one seems to have a lot more variety. Excited about this app.
Excellent app for many styles of meditation
I was skeptical of the benefit of meditation and of paying for an app to do it, but I have really been enjoying this app and use it frequently. The "tutorial" on how to meditate was a great introduction, and I've enjoyed trying out the many different teachers and topics. If I had a complaint it would be that there's no real "search" or sort function. I'd love to be able to sort by time, for example. Also, because the meditations can be helpful for a number of topics, you can miss really great sessions if you don't investigate all the categories. I found a great and very helpful meditation I've gone back to more than once in the "for kids" section! So don't be afraid to try meditations just because of their "category".
Business model issues.... disheartening
I LOVED THIS APP... it was absolutely worth the money I initially paid. However the business model changed to prescription..... Now I feel like this is only for those who can afford the $50. This is how personal health becomes out of reach for lower income individuals. Yes, i am a legacy customer, yes I have access to all the old content, but I can no longer recommend this app because I don’t stand behind the price, it’s too high. I wish at the very least you could download the new meditations at an individual cost or something at least because having to stay stagnant with only the old content is quite frustrating when you see all the great new topics coming out. I understand it costs money to run this, I understand it’s a business, but the basis of the service is self care and it’s just very disheartening to see all these meditation apps pricing people without at much disposable income out of their apps.
This is the Meditation app I have always been looking for
I tried several meditation apps over the years but this one is the BEST by far. Not only is there no subscription to get but the app makes is easy to take a course in a particular subject (anxiety, depression, stress reduction...)but it also allows you to search and find a specific meditation for a problem (difficult problem, patience, etc...). All of the instructors are superb in explaining and guiding through the meditation in a normal calm voice, not the “whispering” mode I have found so distracting on other apps. You will not be disappointed with this app, there really is something for everyone covering all human topics and experience.
Could use some polish
I've used several meditation apps. This one has some nice features (I like being able to add certain meditations to my calendar as a reminder in doing a series, for example) but it bothers me that there's no chimes or other type of notification that the meditation you're using has ended. It simply goes silent. Perhaps this is meant to allow you space for continuing to meditate on your own but it had the opposite effect of making my mind start to wander in the direction of "Is he going to start talking again? When? Will it make me jump?" (And yes, I've had that happen!) I'd rather have the traditional chime or something that indicates the recording is done so I can then freely choose whether to continue on my own with no worries I'll be startled.
Such an inspiring app!
It truly is the best app! It’s been a month and I already see results. Such incredible teachers. Very informative and useful starter pack! Also what made me a loyal customer is the amount of free content. All other apps expect you to pay from the beginning, may be they give you a free trial for a week. Here you can learn how to meditate, finish some courses (some of them take 10 or so days) and only after that if you want you can purchase some extra content. This attitude actually made me buy a few courses I chose and needed! I wasn’t forced to like in other apps but just wanted to support the developer and what they do!
New to meditation
I’ve been using Meditation studio for a couple of weeks now.. Sometimes a few times a day. I am new to meditation. I’ve found the app easy to use.. I like that some meditations are long and some are short.. But it still gives me enough time to get myself grounded and clear my head for the day.. The sleep meditations have been very effective, I fall right to sleep after meditation has ended. I honestly feel like they are making a difference, my stress level has decreased which was my intention when starting this, I also do feel happier, healthier at peace and at Ease🙏🏼. I’m looking forward to listening to many more..🙏🏼❤️
I love this app. The meditations are great and it’s helping me to be a better person I think. I do wish that they had a better way of organizing the meditations once they are in your library, other than scrolling. Sometimes I feel the extra choice of having to pick one from my library prevents me from actually doing it sometimes (no not the main reason I don’t meditate every day). I like that you can schedule meditations in the calendar but it could be more fleshed out. Overall, I love love love the content and the interface is pretty good, my tweaks come from the mentality of there always being room for growth :)
It really is the best meditation app
I have tried a variety of other apps for meditation such as Calm and Omvana. They were ok. I tired of the various ‘asks’ for money in some, the inadequate samples and the lack of variety. So I saw a review of this one and the awards it received. I said might as well. And the reviews were absolutely right. They have meditations for all kinds of mental and emotional needs, at various lengths with different teachers. You can even make your own. And it was <$US25 for the year. Some apps charged $US3-8 per meditation and no sample. You can even make your own Or have favorites and play lists. They are easy to sort by length, type, favorites or teachers. I made a suggestion once about having a dark background to make it easier on the eyes at night. And they actually did within a few weeks (not that I was the cause of it but I feel like someone listened). And you can now string them together. This app has helped me in so many ways to keep my life straight. I wish blessings on the makers. gc
