this was an editors pick in the app store,and I read that it cost nothing and had no ads. I haven't seen that in a long time, so I was curious. I was not expecting to find an app that was so centering and calming with so many sessions to choose from. I have not seen any ads or been asked for any money. none of the sessions are locked. There's no required payment. I have seen multiple guided meditations that are short, easy to listen to, overall extremely helpful. I've shared with everyone.

Was using another well-being app but thought I would trial this as completely free. Sadly I am going to have to give up on it, After completing only two sessions, I am unable to continue. The app opens and I get notifications, but every time I try to access sessions the page blips then stays on the home page. I have tried several different times to do this, closing the app, force stopping it and clearing the cache but the same thing happens every time. Uninstalled.
