This is a really great app for calming the nerves. It taps into music, meditation and breathing exercises and really helps to integrate body and soul. And much cheaper than taking a meditation class!

Pros

Sleep sounds are one of my favorite ways to fall asleep!

Very nicely designed features. I enjoy the daily calm meditations everyday and continue the vibe with the perfect music they have in the app. Last fall when stress was starting to trouble my sleep I relaxed with the beautiful and calming sleep stories. Very good app.

'Calm' app fills me with... calm! As I write this review I'm currently listening to the "Humpback whale" sound which is, in fact, my favorite. I love rains sounds as well and it was awesome to find them here. I always use YouTube to play rain sounds for me to fall asleep without difficulties, but having it on here is better. The app is versatile lets me find my calm in a bunch of different ways.

Pros

1. It is easy to navigate 2. It has different sounds for relaxing and meditation. 3. The audio books put you to sleep 4. The free version does not limit you to only a fee options 5. You can download the sounds or tracks and listen to them while offline

Cons

I do not have any complaints about the app!

It's great that there is a free trial but, just when I get used to meditating using it, my free trial ends and I need to pay $70 a year to subscribe! For me that's way too much for an app, even a good one. So I'm going to end up deleting it which is a shame as it's an app which I'd actually like to keep using. If it wasn't for the expensive price point I would have given it 5 stars.

Pros

Tons of content, a really comprehensive meditation app.

Cons

Too expensive. I can't bring myself to spend anywhere near this amount for an app.

This is a really legit app. Sometimes I find myself stressed over everything and can have outbursts towards those around me. It became too much and I know its not sustainable. Calm is set to be a life saver to say the least. It has great meditation and scenery that induces a feeling of relaxation and calmness. It's early days but I have high hopes for this app. I'm not normally one to pay for apps but this one is worth it. The bedtime stories are also surprisingly good!!

Pros

Well made, relaxing scenery and meditation, awesome bedtime stories, really helps with anxiety!

Cons

You have to pay (but it's worth it)

Such an amazing app!! Using an app that opens with a message just reminding me to breathe! On its face it seems like such an insignificant or little thing but it really made me stop to think. Like, I've been going through my whole day and I have been breathing - of course because its kind of an involuntary action right? But seeing that message show up just kind of jolted me awake to the fact that I am alive and then that helped me make the decision to be present in a moment. Because up until then my passage through time was just this shambolic trudge with every other thing just shut out. This app drew me out into consciousness but not just any consciousness. It was this beautiful world inside of it where everything was thoughtfully placed to make me and my mind feel better and its working so well. I actually had a restful night's sleep my first use and I hadn't had that since forever. This is certainly not the first app of this nature that I have downloaded but this is the time I know that I will definitely be keeping this app.

Pros

The soothing background sound of water. I give this app major points for it because personally, I have always found water to be really relaxing and it gave a feeling reminiscent of relaxing in cool waters. I enjoyed it so much that at some point I just closed my eyes and focused on forgetting about all of the other features of the app I was yet to explore until my phone went to standby from the lack of activity and the sounds stopped. I grinned and unlocked my phone again to check out all of the other features. I loved the graphics, the music, the mood check in with actual emojis was a nice touch. I love emojis and getting to use them to express my mood I think has become such a cultural thing for my generation so it was really great to see the developer take that into consideration. There are so many awesome features on this app that it would take me a novel to talk about them all and the coolest part about it is that a lot of it is available to you for free. I was surprised to see just how much you can benefit from this app without even needing to upgrade. I felt like the developer really cares about helping the user instead of just profiting and call me crazy but that really made me feel like I matter. Meditation was on point. The bedtime story! The music! The lullabies! And thats not even all of it. Ah best app ever.

Cons

None. None at all. Absolutely perfect.

This is a really well made app, its such a find!! Love the take a deep breathe intro because we often forget to just do that when depression hits. This app is very very helpful and I love the easy guided process breakdown to build up my calmness. Only downside is its pretty expensive once the free trial ends.

Pros

Great app for helping with calmness, serenity and meditation. It's really well made and easy to use. Absolutely love it for calming my anxiety.

Cons

'd love it to be free - but alas not. It's worth the money though.

Really great relaxation app. Calm offers great meditation and helps with feeling relaxed for even your worst anxiety periods. It offers meditation sessions, calming music, as well as action plans to organize your future life goals. It really does allow you to be calm and maintain yourself in hectic situations. The images and videos are also very peaceful.

Pros

The quiet and calming music is the best for anytime of day. The library of sleep stories is pretty massive, with new stories being added everyday. The mental fitness sessions also allow you to return to a peaceful state.

Cons

I like everything about this app. I wish it was more dedicated to keeping track of your long term goals.

Calm is the best cure for depression through meditation. It's awesome for both beginners and experienced meditators - because actually there's no state you can achieve and say you are perfectly fine. It's helpful!

Pros

This app has an amazing meditation feature.

Cons

No cons.
