Simply the best
I rarely write reviews, particularly 5 star ones, but Calm Radio is quite simply the best background music app I've come across - I have various channels on constantly and have recommended it to family, friends and even clients. Many of them are now subscribers too! There are lots of music streaming apps available in the app store but what makes this one stand out to me is the obvious care and thought that goes into creating the constantly changing playlists - this is * not* Pandora! Evidently, real humans (with great knowledge and taste I might add) program the music and it shows. There are lots of bells and whistles (rain and forest sounds etc) but everything is built on a foundation of the exquisitely chosen music. I highly recommend you check it out.
Great app - a few more features would be great though!
I have been a member for several years, and listen almost every day. I’m perfectly happy with the audio quality and the selection of music - I have purchased many, many pieces after hearing them on CalmRadio first! I would like to see a few additional features included: - please open the app with either my favorite channels or the last channel played - not a random channel - please consider making a radio playlist available - a list of the pieces played in the last few hours or more would be great. Very often I hear a piece on CalmRadio I would like to purchase or listen to again, but may not be able to get to the device at that moment to get the artist/composer/piece details. These could make a great app even better!
Losing out on a membership.
I’m a paid member of Calm Radio, and am now losing out. I love the music and atmosphere channels, and would give it five stars. The problem is that the new app isn’t VoiceOver friendly, as the previous versions were, and there is no in-app tutorial. Somehow, I finally got One channel to play in the new version, but am unable to switch channels or go to other categories. I tried Contact Us in the App Support section of the info page in App Store, and met up with a captcha, which has an audio challenge, but it doesn’t work! Please bring back the previous—and user friendly—version. I suspect I’m not the only person who finds the new app unnavigable and a real mess. To quote an old expression, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. The previous version wasn’t broken.
Latest App is Slow and Cumbersome
I enjoy Calm Radio, however, the new app - which has been out for a while now - is unacceptably slow and hard to navigate relative to previous versions. I have an older iPhone, but the app is not speedy even on the latest iPad Pro. I've been a Calm Radio subscriber since I connected to the service via http on an iPod Touch, and the underlying data streams have not increased in bandwidth enough to justify the significant drop in performance of the latest app relative to the Calm Radio apps in the past. Hope this is fixed soon. I'll echo some of the other comments that I have seen about keeping things simple, and if isn't broke don't fix it.
The very best variety of music and very best support
We have been long time members of Calm. Tried numerous others, but always came back to Calm. The reason, it is the most enjoyable music catered to your listening pleasure. I have even asked for additional artists on particular channels we like , it wasn't a day or two and not only were what we requested added but many more. Just recently I had problems receiving Calm on my Minimac. The Calm team kept working on the problem till it was completely resolved. Now that is unheard of in today's business. We can not give higher than 5 Stars or we woul, but Eric Harry and his team never stop striving to improve what is already wonderful. And it is backed up by service second to none. Thank you and God bless you all at Calm Radio! Peter and Meredith
I like the channel selection a lot and enjoy the variety of music. The app can be frustrating at times though, like this morning. It keeps kicking me out and when I do get in it’s freezing up. Also, when I go to advance past a song, I am only given the previous song to listen to or the one I just fast forwarded through. I think that’s a little strange but maybe that’s the way it goes. Again, when I’m in it and it’s working well, which is most of the time, I really enjoy it. Thank you.
Better for music than a radio
Such a wide selection of great music. Alexa only gives me one movement of a classical piece which I request. My classical music radio station offers only one piece at a time. CALM radio offers so many choices of composers and genres to choose anytime I feel like listening. Plus, for each “station” they actually offer two choices, easily switched by clicking one button. I am totally pleased.
Calm Radio soothes the soul and restrains the demons Of PTSD
I subscribed to Calm Radio many years ago. I have tinnitus and hearing loss from working around helicopters and heavy equipment. Calm Radio does not cure my hearing loss or tinnitus but it camouflages the buzzing noises with an arsenal of soothing music. My favorite Channel is "Eric Henry and Friends", music that banishes the incessant buzzing and restrains the demons of PTSD. Calm Radio support team is fantastic. The couple of times there were technical problems they quickly solved them.
Gets better & better
Definitely like the option to have still images instead of video. It has a lot of potential for expansion. I’d suggest adding more images and maybe a slideshow effect. Adding our own images might be nice but, for iOS, that might get a little complicated since we can’t access folders. I do like that you keep things simple.
Great channels; some need larger playlists; lately: crashes
Although there's too much overlap across some channels (e.g., Reiki, Sleep, Feng Shui) and some could use more focus (e.g., Gregorian), I still listen to Calm channels daily, and with SFX ("Delta") added for sleeping. Since the last update (July 2017), it's had problems relinquishing the lockscreen, and the playback halts when it finally does let you unlock your phone. As with other past glitches, I expect this one will get fixed soon, too.
Great app but a minor carp with latest upgrades
I have been a lifetime member of Calm Radio for many years and really enjoy the app. I have favorited the channels that I generally listen to. So, the complaint that I currently have is that with the new upgrades, it is now six taps of the phone to get to listen the channels that I have a favorited. Would you consider making it simpler to get to one’s favorites, and once chosen, not require an additional tap to start the streaming?
Wouldn’t do without it!
I’ve been with calm for years and I wouldn’t think of not having it as I use it every day to go to sleep and to wake up on my home Sonos. I also use the iPad app for sleep sounds while I travel. I didn’t really care for the latest recategorization of the tracks though. I still can’t seem to find a few channels that I used to listen to.
I love the choices I have with all the stations. In particular, I am really, really enjoying the updated Instrumental Christian station. I have on Calm Radio almost all day at work and typically choose only instrumental because it helps me concentrate better when I’m working. I love this change to the Christian station because I just need to have that as my background music right now.
App quits after 45 min.
I have a paid subscription so I can listen during the night. A couple days ago the app stops running after about 45 min. I have to re-click on a station to get it working again. 45 min later it shuts off again. What happened? It was a 4-5 star app.
Starts with 10 minutes of ads!
Nice concept and lots of content, but very annoyed at their pitch for customers to subscribe to memberships every time you start the app and play a station. It’s not too bad if it’s 30 seconds or so, like most other services (and usually they don’t start off with it), but with multiple back to back ads that lasts for almost 10 minutes before starting the actual content, this is unacceptable! Was thinking of subscribing but this is a turn off!
