  • Best meditation app EVER.


    By Athvna
    I mean what I said in the title. I’ve tried synctuition, headspace and this other popular meditation app... None of them even compare to Calm. I love calm. I knew I was hooked when I tried their free trial and did my first session. That’s how amazing this app is. I recommend this app to anyone that has ears LOL I’m always telling my brothers and sisters to download it. It puts me to sleep every night like a BABY. I’m truly amazed and so thankful for this app. It’s easily worth the investment every single month/every year because it’s an investment for your mental health. For me that’s always worth it. I love the sleep stories, I love how LONG the meditations are (up to 45 minutes) headspace’s longest meditation is only 15 minutes or something like that. That’s terrible. What would be cool in the future to see is: more personalization for each session. 1. Being able to pick the background music (whether that’s actual music in the background or rain, or the beach) not all meditations offer this option and I think it would be great to be able to choose! I also think that being able to adjust the volume of the background sounds and the volume of the voice, that’s one thing headspace did right— they offered this. I love this app and I’ll always love it. Thank you. My favorite things to listen to are the guided sleep meditations, these really help me fall asleep. ❤️
  • Sleep, anxiety, & life saver all in one app


    By CaylieHan
    Honestly, I had come to a point in my life where I insomnia and anxiety were at an all time high , I was on anxiety meds, sleep meds, anything they could do to try & get my anxiety and insomnia under control & even when the pills weren’t really helping, I decided to try this app out because even doctors had recommend it, while yes- price tag can seem like a lot, BUT I used this one night while my anxiety was setting in and I was asleep half way through the sleep story and when I woke in the morning I was in disbelief. Nothing, I mean nothing had helped me until I found this app. The meditation & sleep stories are amazing. I am so grateful for this app. Now, the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars would be due to a recommend I have for the creators, they should create a watch or something that can track your sleep & in the morning provide meditations, music, sleep stories that reflected how you slept the night before. For example, if someone woke up a lot, or of people were waking up frequently and having a hard time going back to sleep & maybe making suggestions for a meditation they could choose that one as more personal, or for anxiety with sleep or sleeplessness, things like that. I don’t know that would be my only recommendation, but overall and amazing app that’s worth the price.
  • Life changing


    By bgschubert
    I used to use Headspace for meditation (which is a fine app - especially if you’re just getting started) but Calm has helped me take things to a whole other level. The Headspace meditations were essentially all the same - there are maybe four variations but he cycles through those four and you get the same mix regardless of what series you’re working on (stress, anxiety, work performance, etc). I feel like the Calm meditations go much deeper and I’m noticing a huge difference in myself after switching over to Calm. Historically, I’m somewhat self critical and I have a higher than normal baseline for general anxiety (although I wouldn’t say that I have an anxiety disorder by any means). At times, these things make me impulsive or reactive in certain ways that I don’t like. I feel like I’m much more self aware after switching to Calm and I’m able to identify when I’m experiencing certain feelings and deal with them in a healthy way. Aside from that, I’m much more enthusiastic about my meditation practice and I’m meditating more often since I learn new skills every day rather than sitting through the same old boring meditation. Calm gives you a toolbox with multiple different tools that you can use in various situations. I love it and highly recommend it to anyone.
  • So relaxing and amazing


    By calm girl10
    I absolutely love love love this app!!!!♥️ once I could not go to sleep so I turned on some of the calm music and I fell asleep 10 minutes later. I was amazed. I have been getting better sleep since than. Also whenever I am feeling stressed or anxious about someone or something, I listen to one of the daily calms or the next day on the meditation trial. Right away it’s as if you were brought into some beautiful relaxing world where there are these voices saying “It will be ok no matter what. This will pass.” And it does its amazing how calming and peaceful this app is. Next, mood check in. The mood check in helps me express and release good and bad feelings and thoughts. Enjoy the good ones and let go of the bad ones. It even gives you a chance to write a little about them. It’s like your own personal diary, but way better. Last but definitely not least, I Believe this app can make you a better person. To be happier, to live life longer. It can be a real life changer. And just know that it’s never to late to start fresh again. It’s never to late to change yourself. But most of all, it’s never to late lo be the big change in the world, that you have wished for. And calm can help with all of that. This is a total recommendation for anyone.
  • Worth so much more than I ever imagined


    By rknaakable
    This app has had an incredible impact on my mental health and overall quality of life. It has changed my perspectives and state-of-mind in ways that have been beneficial to every aspect of my everyday life and well-being, in a countless number of ways. By committing to the habit and genuine effort to a mere 10 minutes of meditation a day, I have observed a significant change to the way my brain works and handles day-to-day tasks and situations. I have gained peace-of-mind, appreciation, more quality and meaningful time spent with my family, the ability to approach things in ways that are more practical and productive and less stressful.... And this is just to name a few ways meditation has been useful and life-changing. My 10yo son insists on using it before bed every night in order to help him unwind and get a better night’s sleep. I use it for tension relief and to soothe migraines, or to calm myself down when I’m angry or upset. The mind is so powerful and can truly enhance one’s quality of life and well-being in ways you could never imagine possible. By obtaining a better mindset and maintaining the ways in which your brain works and thinks, you can come to realize what sort of impact it can make on your overall health, happiness and life.
  • Helping High School Students Stay CALM


    By amberkaymccoy
    I am a high school teacher at a high preforming high school in my area. My students are often so stressed out and sleep deprived I feel so helpless to help them. This year I decided to dedicate one day a week to meditating before we started class. We do this every Thursday for the first 10-15 minutes of class. The response has been so positive from my students I am thinking of doing it two days a week next year. The students LOVE Thursday!! They have told me it’s the favorite part for their week. Some students have even gotten the app for themselves. I have heard so many times this year, “I needed that!” or “I needed to hear that today.” After on session one of my boys said, “Man I was so upset about losing those 5 points on my English test and now I have let it go. This really works. What did you all think about?” You know you are doing something right when teenagers open up and start talking. Thank you for this product and allowing me the opportunity to give my students at least 15 minutes a week to destress, calm down, learn to love themselves and just breath! Can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me and my students as we take this CALM journey.
  • Sleep Stories are AMAZING!


    By TinySenshi
    This App is my absolutely favorite to use when I’m going to sleep. I got it solely for the sleep stories and I’m absolutely obsessed. It’s like being a kid again and getting a beautiful story read to you by a soothing voice. While I use the app mainly for sleep stories I’ve used the meditation, background music, and breathing exercise options on the app as well. I used to use Headspace for a lot of my meditation sessions but with Calm having so many additional features I switched over fairly quickly. The only problem I have with this app is that I can’t set up a playlist/cue of the stories I want to fall asleep to. Sometimes I can’t fall asleep right away so I have to go through the process of unlocking my phone, setting up another story, and trying to settle down once again just to set up another story to be read. It quickly becomes irritating, especially on nights when I can’t fall asleep easily and have to go through the process of setting up an additional three stories and eventually giving up in the end. So if that can somehow be added then it’ll get my full 5 stars. But having nights where I’m on and off my phone throughout the night definitely makes me feel frustrated enough to keep it at 4 stars.
  • Meditation app w/ you in mind


    By Cntygrl
    I recommend this app to anyone looking for a meditation app. I have even given gift subscriptions to friends looking to mediate because they are so in tune with their clients needs. They are always looking at feedback, offering content to meet needs and finding things to offer I didn’t even know I wanted. The narrators are wonderful & plentiful so if one doesn’t cut it for you, you can change. There is also calming sounds, perfect sleep stories and A daily check in to see how you feel and offer suggestions on what might help. Their Master classes are great for learning things like mindful eating, better sleep, how to relax, and even improving your performance in life. All star narrators like Lebron James, Matthew McConaughey, Lucy Liu, Bindi Irwin, Bob Ross, Jerome Flynn, Leona Lewis, Jason Kidd & more read sleep stories & give advice on how to improve aspects of your life. Sabrina Carpenter & Sam Smith give music mixes to help you sleep or relax. They even have a calm body to help you wake up, warm up/cool down from your workout, reset for the afternoon and wind down for the evening. This app is for your whole body not just your mind. Keep up the amazing work Calm. This app is worth every penny.
  • Free features aren’t bad, but a few issues.


    By Alice Valkyrie
    I recently re-downloaded this app and like the free features (when I downloaded it years ago one of my favorite features was “Scenes,” so as long as I have access to those for free, this app will stay on my phone). However, it’s a bit annoying that I now have a “Daily Calm Perception” notification on my screen that is locked and that I can’t remove. I don’t purchase app subscriptions, though I would be more than willing to support this app by individually buying content I was interested in as one-time purchases). If you don’t plan on allowing users to buy content separately, can you please at least give us the option to only view non-subscription content if we wish (with no content we can’t access clogging up the screen)? I read another review stating that some of the music was available to non-subscribers. It all appears locked for me. Can you clarify please? Also, are all 7 days for any of the meditations unlocked for free users? I just listened to the first day of “7 Days of Calming Anxiety” but I don’t think I can listen to the second one (or even repeat day one w/o subscribing, which is a bit ridiculous IMO). Please consider alternative payment models in the future. I’d love to support the app, just not with a subscription.
  • Should not claim to support Family Share


    By bbrockit
    Like many expensive subscription apps Calm claims to support Apple Family share. However, In-app purchases and subscriptions cannot be shared, so no, your purchase of Calm cannot be shared. Only the free portion (accessible for 1 week) can be shared—which is of course unnecessary since family members don’t need family share for something that is already free. Family members would actually be better off downloading it directly because the free access only lasts one week so they’d at least get their own trial period instead of whatever remains of a family member’s. There is fine print in the App Store which says that Family Share does not support in-app purchases and subscriptions, but nothing in the app itself will tell you that your $70 one year subscription cannot be shared with a family member or significant other. It would be simpler and more honest if Calm would opt-out of Family Share so it would not display that capability on their App Store description as Family Share is only relevant and useful for one-time paid apps. You have a very nice app, so you don’t need to make this claim to sell more subscriptions. It just adds unnecessary confusion and appears misleading.
