I like the many different types of meditations and anxiety relief options, the most I've found. However, as I've said in several emails to the developers, it always stops about 10 to 15 mins into anything I listen too. It's very frustrating to listen to insomnia relief that's supposed to last 30 mins to an hour or longer and then as I'm just relaxing or really getting into the relief it suddenly stops. I've deleted it and downloaded it over and over again and it still does the same thing.

I have looked and looked for a app to helpme but to no avail. Then this one popped up. What a godsend!!! Its like having a therapist on call 24/7! I have many mental issues. I need to learn how to handle these and that is just what this app does! The audios help me so much! Just having someone talking to me, guiding me , I have hope now :) there is a variety of audios from teaching you how to deal to emergency audio that reassures you that you will be okay!

This app has helped me immensely, so I won't give it less than five stars, but I do have a suggestion - make the audios for the seven day challenges open in a player like the other audios. It's impossible to start over or go back a few seconds if you were interrupted, you have to finish the entire recording and then start it over to see what you missed. Even closing and reopening the app doesn't reset you to the beginning of the audio.

Thank you for your kind feedback, Melissa! We appreciate you bringing this to our attention, we will look into this further. As a temporary solution, you can download the challenge audios and play it by going to your Profile > Challenges (under My Downloads). This will give you the option to play the audio through our player. Hope this helps!
