This is just an album.
Ok, I've had the free trial for a week now, and I feel I can safely say that this app isn't some algorithmic genius, it's simply a pleasing ambient album. For example, there are two distinct tracks on the sleep channel, and that's it, no matter if sometimes a somewhat ancillary ticking clock is playing instead of a white noise filter sweep mimicking the ocean. There's no shame at all in making a good ambient album. They've done that. But the description of the app is truly misleading and tries to represent this app as something more. And on top of that, it charges an ongoing subscription fee that is not equivalent to the market price of an album, which, again, is what this is. Sorry, but I'm not gonna subscribe and have to renew $25 every year for the latest Carly Rae Jepsen album either. The lack of promise of future updates/material, on top of it all, makes this whole enterprise seem very dishonest. Pretty good album, though. For something truly ambitious and algorithmic, see Brian Eno's Scape app for iPad. Relatively expensive for an iPad app, but a one-time purchase and filled with at least 10x the material of this app.
Changing my life
I’ve used sound to deep work and sleep for years, but this is just a whole new level. WORK (Focus mode) This has instantly boosted my focus depth and duration while working. It has replaced the Thunderspace app and my ‘Chill’ playlist I used previously. WALKING (On the go) I use it while walking, and I meditate and pray while I walk. I do know how they do it, but the sound is so unique, interesting, rhythmic and beautiful. It really helps me get in the meditative zone very quickly. It has dramatically improved the quality of my meditation through walking. SLEEP I’ve used the Pillow app for a few years, as well as the Smart Alarm feature on my Withings/Nokia wearable tracker - mainly to wake up at a good time in my sleep cycle. While this app doesn’t have that feature, I have begun to use the Sleep feature in place of the sounds of the Pillow app just before bed. Works great, and I like the sounds much better. RELAX While I do t use this one very often, it seems to work when I do. I’ll chill out while reading or contemplating, or while making a fire at home. For me, the killer features are the fact that this is all in one beautiful app that’s a joy to use, and secondarily, that the quality of the sound and features are second to none. This has become one of my top 5 third-party apps, probably forever. Nice work team!
I am using an Apple Watch and have health data stored to the extent that I believe there should be an adequately suited soundscape right away. I need to sleep and I saw this ad and thought it would help. However the music made me feel more awake and has eerie vibes. The way the sound waves are visualized when I press the screen in sleep mode seems too active for the sleeping state and the sound produced does not feel intuitive but more randomly generated. Like I could not play the screen like a hand pan if I wanted to, the notes would just change and I’d be lost. Read some other reviews. Honestly feels like a soundscape to me but I’m just playing devils advocate and a healthy skeptic. Trying something different now, thank you for the opportunity but I felt mislead and shall take my journey for sleep elsewhere. Maybe pull a safe last resort which I do not want to have to do... to help me fall asleep 😴 Best of luck, you seem like a cool, genuine dude. ✌️
Cool idea... doesn’t deliver
On paper this app is a rapturously good idea I was ready to pay for. After my week trial I was still intrigued so I paid for an additional month. This doesn’t feel like a curated experience worthy of a subscription, it feels like a 4 song album. Beyond that, the insights are utterly meaningless and provide no additional value to my experience. I’ll definitely be looking for a place to download these four tracks so I can put them on repeat myself, but to charge a subscription promising a curated personal service for this just seems... misleading. I wanted to love this app, maybe I’ll check back in a year or two :/
My new favorite app
Mere minutes after beginning the seven day trial, I paid for the lifetime option—which was deeply discounted at the time. I use Endel daily; it has supplanted several other relaxation and ambient sounds apps. Although I was hesitant to allow location and motion tracking, it does enhance the experience (somewhat limited, I suppose, by the fact that I don’t wear a fitness tracker or heart rate monitor). I’m happy to see the problem with disconnecting headphones and Bluetooth speakers is fixed. It was annoying to have to switch modes or quit and relaunch to get sound back. For those who tend to keep screens dimmer, unselected mode icons can be difficult to see. Otherwise I love the interface. I particularly like the timer. I don’t know why all soundscape apps don’t have one. Although I like the new winter mode, periodically some the loop transitions are a bit abrupt. (Strings maybe? The sounds have changed and it’s not happening as I write this.) I think it would be nice if it becomes a seasons mode that changes with the calendar.
Skeptical at first...
At first I was a bit “iffy” about confirming a 7 day free trial, but as I began to use the app, my mind changed completely. Really simple, easy, and pleasing interface to look at. The sounds and overall listening experience is great, I’m already sold and I’ve only been using it for one day! The “focus” themed soundtrack is surprisingly effective, I found myself focused in almost a trance like state and got so much work done. Looking forward to being able to focus and get some good sleep. Really hope the developers include different soundscapes - even though it seems like the selection on the app is extensive enough.
Was not offered the Lifetime subscription
I was only offered the annual subscription. I am frustrated by the lack of transparency that it is a subscription app (1st week free only). Reading through the description it can be found that there is a layered subscription which include a lifetime option. The app was interesting enough app that I was willing to pay a one time premium for the lifetime subscription. So I’ve signed up. They then offer a twenty four hour 50% discount for new users. There was no way to get to the lifetime membership option (not at all). - don’t lie to me, don’t make false offers, don’t not make the product fully available. It looks like a well made app. Good job to the builders. Someone is sales has convinced you that dishonest practices are acceptable. I am sad for you.
This app is amazing. I’m not a big app guy but lately I’ve been struggling with getting the sleep I need and some stress so I was looking around for help. Tried a couple things but none worked until I found this. This app is a whole other animal. I love it. I connect my speaker to my phone and play the sleep section while I get ready to try to sleep and since I’ve started using it I have had some incredible sleep. I wake up feeling great. Thank you guys a lot. Keep up the great work and I am excited to see what is to come!
I really love this app...to help me concentrate on work, to just chill out and most of all to sleep. For me, this is where the flaw presents itself. I love using the timer to fall asleep to, however; when the timer is done instead of just fading off leaving me in peace and quiet it makes this weird jarring/beeping/clatter noise that ALWAYS wakes me up after I've fallen asleep. Please get rid of that. I don't need to be alerted that the sounds I am using to fall asleep are now over. I already have a lot of trouble sleeping - that's why I use this app. Being woken up abruptly after failing gently asleep is annoying and frustrating. Rating would be 5 stars if it weren't weird ending.
I paid for a year of this because there’s a discount if you buy before the 7 free days. I didn’t realize that there are literally no options. You choose from 5 types of sounds, relax/focus/on the go/sleep/season. Thats it. They are good for sure, but the sleep and season one stopped working after 3 weeks, so now it’s onto relax... for the rest of the year? I have bad PTSD, sleeping is hell to begin with, finances are tight. Definitely wouldn’t have purchased had I known it was really well marketed up front with a super basic back end. AND if you want to use Endel on ITunes, you need the unlimited iTunes for 9.99 per month... it doesn’t come with the endel subscription. Get a free app.
Literally doesn’t do anything discernible
No idea why Apple promoted this thing in the Today panel. I let this thing run in the background, all of the permissions it wants, etc., but it doesn’t play audio at ALL. Tap Play and the button icon switches to Pause for just long enough that you don’t doubt that you pushed it. I also got a notice that my first “insight” report was ready, but when I tapped the notification, it just dumped me on the usual non-functional home screen. I tried to go to Insights manually and just got the message about “keep using Endel,” etc. I suppose the app does do one thing: tapping on the horizontal lines floating across my screen does generate some visual effects, I guess? It’s basically a screensaver otherwise.
Absolutely Fantastic 🥳
Rarely do I fall in love with apps as quickly as I did with Endel. Since signing up for a paid subscription, I have been able to focus way better at work, and I have been sleeping better too. I can't recommend it enough. The one feature that would take this to the next level imo would be shortcuts support. I would love to be able to automate Endel to start playing through my HomePod when I start my bedtime scene, for instance.
I downloaded the app and I signed up and everything fast forward to when it’s time to use. I’m trying to go to sleep and i then open the app. I try to click the “ S “ but it stays on the “ HOUSE “ and it’s not making any wavelenths. It’s just quiet. The lines are moving in straight lines. Nothing like the videos. Am I doing something wrong ? If someone could help that would be very appreciated:) I’m pretty sure it’s a great app I just need to learn how to use it successfully.
I’ve tried lots of other similar apps but I love this one the most so far. The personalization is effective and invaluable compared to other free and generic sound apps. The design is beautiful and distraction free. I would say it’s absolutely worth the subscription. An added bonus - my cats really seem to love the sounds too. I play focus on a portable speaker while doing chores around the house and they love following me around while it’s playing.
Love this app
This is a beautifully designed app and has one of my favorite sleep modes. I found the sleep sounds very easy to fall asleep to. My biggest issue so far and what keeps me from giving it a 5 star rating is when using Sleep mode I usually set a timer as I don't need sounds going all night. I usually just want an hour or two to fall asleep and perhaps mask out external noise to get to that state. Also if my phone is unplugged it would drain the battery to keep it going all night. But when the timer expires a jarring chime and alternative sound track kicks in. This wakes me up every single time! It is supposed to be a timer — not an alarm right? So why would you have a chime go off and alter the sound waves in such an abrupt fashion. Now I am awake again. Rather than this alarm the sounds should just simply stop or even fade out. Just a little feedback.
