would be 5 stars if the app would stop running after meditation is over. have woken 6-8 hours later and still running. if medication is 30 mins it should just stop then. if a person goes longer in own they can add it later. to leave app running drains battery and causes regular alarm to not go off. the meditations themselves are wonderful. I would use more/daily before bed but for app running issue.
This app has thought of everything you'd want! Tons of free guided meditations in all sorts of variations and styles, including mindful movement and in several foreign languages, tracks progress, allows social interaction if desired, ability to do unguided meditation with cued intervals... Love the famous teachers on here and discovering new ones. Really feel this is the app to keep you meditating, as we all fall off the wagon regularly!
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.
- 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
