Life changing app This app is a great tool to change your life. It makes meditation accessible and free to anyone. It has opened my mind to meditation and has helped me with insomnia and anxiety. I particularly like the music section as I am a strong believer in the way music can help us deal with our emotions. I use this app with a good pair of sound canceling head phones to really enjoy the meditations. While there other places to find guided meditations such as YouTube nothing quite beats the simplicity of insight timer.
Insight Timer A fantastic app, not only does it have huge flexibility in the way the timer can be set up, intervals, chimes, volume etc but motivates one to meditate, by being part of a huge community if that's what one wants, also introduces one to a vast range of guided meditations and teachers. There are discussion groups too. And if you have any problems the support team gets back to you with a quick response - remarkable given there are over a million subscribers. Can't recommend it highly enough!
Great for finding new meditations but hard to navigate the app. Eg no way to go quickly to the next in a series of medications. And to see your daily log you have to go deep into the settings. Also I want to put my personal comments on how my meditation went before being asked to rate it
No Internet connection issue I really enjoyed this app when first downloaded. Especially easy to use for a beginner in meditation but the guided mediations are rarely accessible. I often get a "no Internet connection" or "can't connect insight timer..., use offline etc" when i am connected .I recently updated the app and still issue. So until this becomes less frequent my rate is only ok.
The ideal meditation app It's got everything you need for a good session of meditation and more. Different chimes with intervals, ambient sounds, guided meditations and a wonderful community of meditators near and far. It even shows you a map of all the people currently meditating and once you've finished, shows you how many people you've meditated with. Whether you're looking to start a meditation routine or are a seasoned practitioner, this is the best app you'll find on the play store.
TL:DR Get this app! Life changing and 1000x better than Headspace. Functions i love: -The seemingly infinite guided meditations. -The custom timer is awesome, especially how it runs on automatically if you carry on past time. -Mute phone option. -The community aspect; even though i don't engage with it i really like seeing all the people around the world who meditated with me at exactly the same moment in time. -Stats and milestones, because I'm a self-competitive geek. It's just a really beautiful app and I can't recommend it highly enough. Best of all, it's free!
- A new stats module that works offline with updated progress charts based on Time, Session, Activity type (meditation, yoga, tai chi etc), and a new "All Time" tab which starts at your first session - not just the last 10 months.
- A new feature for selecting an activity type when adding sessions manually
- A new screen design when you're "offline". Goodbye sad smiley face
