This used to be a great app many years ago. I'm considering letting it go and listen to meditations on YouTube, but still not there yet. It's helped me in years past, which I'm appreciative of. But now there's some items that don't feel like the original vibe. The subscription aspect is pushed too much to the point where you can't even track through a play. The tracking stops randomly, which seems like a functional issue. It's just getting frustrating to use which bums me out.

I'm reducing stars. Been enjoying the app + premium subscription for years. It's been a valuable primary resource for my meditation practice. However, lately the playbacks will randomly stop partway. I couldn't find a solution in the support section, so I cleared cache, cleared data, and reinstalled. All my bookmarks, playlists, and list of followed teachers are gone 😔 I probably shouldn't have cleared the data. Don't know yet if the original issue is resolved - TBD.

I would have given this app 5 stars because it is easily one of my favorite apps... until recently when it stopped playing for more than about 30 minutes at a time. It will buffer forever! It doesn't matter if it's on wifi or cell data. I have different playlists set up to play all night, but I find myself waking up for 30 minutes at a time several times a night to reset the app. I have reinstalled the app several times, so that's NOT the fix. I pay for the annual subscription. Fix this!
