Calm premium subscription charged users without permission, but the app has positive effects on mental health. The variety and new artists make it enjoyable. Sleep stories evoke emotions and create memories. The app helps with sleep, pain relief, meditation, and peace. Some users report issues with canceling subscriptions. Calm is a valuable tool for mental health and self-care.Calm

I love your app but I only give you 4 stars because you have only the first chapter or two of a book. I want to hear the whole thing!
It helps me sleep😴
This is the BESST Bedtime Story App I love it that’s all I can say I LOVE IT
I go days without sleeping. I’m so tired and exhausted, I don’t eat right. I had my doubts but to my surprise in 10 mts I was asleep. Don’t miss out on this great app!
iI I downloade
I’ve been using this app for 4+ years now and it has become an integral part of my life. My mental health has improved since and meditating routinely became possible because of this app. I love the way it is setup for all background levels and has many other useful lifestyle improvement based aspects like better sleep, focus and movement. I would recommend this app to anyone who is looking to work on those things or even just trying to explore the fields of mindfulness and positive psychology and/or appreciate a well made app.
I have used this app over the years to increase my meditation skills. Learning about mindfulness practices. Many other skills in being in the world in a positive way are discussed and actual practices can be experienced.
This is a relaxing application. If you want to get a wonderful sleep highly recommend, especially if u have sleeping disorder. I would definitely recommend this app to others it a must try!.
Hi I’m Ellie and I have a very hard time getting a good amount of sleep that’s why I use kids stories on calm. Every time I can’t go to sleep I listen to a story and fall asleep almost immediately. I also sometimes use the breath or the daily move. I use the breath because it helps me relax and calm down. I use that daily move cus it helps my move stretch and it makes me feel tired. My favorite part about calm is the kids stories. My favorite story is raggedy an stories. I like that story because it reminds me of just being calm you know. Anyway this is why I use calm and I think if you have any trouble with breathing falling to sleep exercise and much more. Calm has it. 😊
I’m not very computer savvy and have a hard time finding what I want especially in the middle of the night. I keep poking at it till I get there
I paid for the full membership, but it didn’t work. I couldn’t access anything and clicking on “restore purchase,” it told me to create an account and supply them with my email address. I hate sharing my email address. Do you want my money or not?
Well, I supplied them with my email address thinking I had to in order to make my PAID app work. Then the app told me to login with the Apple ID with which I bought the membership. Umm… I only have one Apple ID. The one I am using. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get it to give me the access I paid for.
Aaaannnnd they immediately started spamming me. I clicked on unsubscribe immediately without reading their idiotic sales pitch that I never wanted in the first place. I hate that crap.
But they kept spamming me anyway. Clicked on unsubscribe again. And I still couldn’t make my paid account work. For two days and some more unwanted spam later, I finally went to Apple and asked for a refund. I got it. Thank goodness.
The spam was immediate and really off-putting. I am not putting up with that. Put them on my junk sender list and deleted the app entirely. I hate that they have my email address now, though. Super sketchy.
The best app ever!!!
My family has been having trouble with going to sleep but when we found this app… it changed everything at night! Our favorites are: The Mystery Of the Lavender Water, Your Biggest Fan, nifty, yawny mcdawny and minions
Me and my daughter fall asleep it’s great
I love it
I wanted to try some other meditation apps so cancelled my subscription only to find there’s a $19.95 fee (plus in reading fine print there may be some more fees). No very calm!
I love Calm and now with KP providing it I’m thrilled.
This app is not for Deaf or hard of hearing people. Everything is auditory based, which limits who can use the app and how people approach or engage with meditation. Diversify the methods you are using if you want to reach a wider audience. Present visual and text based options please.
I’m thankful for the Calm App. It has been added to my toolbox, over the last couple of years, to help keep me mentally healthy and sound. It’s helped with anxiety, depression, sleep deprivation and a whole lot more.
This app is just okay. The user interface is not intuitive and rather easy to get lost in the catalog that is all over the place and disorganized. Not ideal for developing a habitual practice due to lack of structure. Personally, Tamara levitts voice/pronunciation/inflection of words is annoying and difficult to listen to.
This is one of the first apps I open in the morning and last I use at night. It keeps me focused during the work day and allows me to release the stress before bed.
You are helping me to align my internal purpose with my outside purpose every day. Besides to that, Im able to share what consider the most valuable exercises with my community.
Thanks !!!!🙃 Roberto R.
I’m so glad I discovered this app. It’s an amazing way to start your day
it looks great from all of the videos i have watched, but none of them mentioned a subscription. id rather spend less money buying a fan than constantly spending money on an app. i was going to give it a 1 star but i realized since i didn’t actually pay for it, i don't feel as if i should put a 1 star review. which is why it is a 3 star.
I have been using the free version of Calm for the last four years and just signed up for the premium subscription. My daughter likes having lots of different options for stories and music to listen to in the night.
Dear creator of calm
I think that you should get rid of Homestead.
I just don’t get it. I hope you are able to do this quickly because I am going to take away your app from my phone.
I find trying to maintain streaks in apps stressful and anxiety producing. I meditate to when I can and to help myself, and not meditating one day is not a failure, it’s just a day I didn’t meditate.
I was so happy to find Calm had a setting to turn off streaks. I turned it off immediately and enjoyed not being guilt tripped by a relaxation app.
Welp, the latest update launched and immediately prompted me to add a “goal” of three Calm meditations per week, and added a seven day checklist at the top of the home tab. :( now I can’t even open the app without it guilting me towards obsess e behavior :(
I was able to get a one year Premium subscription for super cheap with a special deal. After using it for a few days, the meditations are fine. What I find super frustrating is there is NO way to easily filter and search for meditations. For example, in another FREE app, I can filter by time, male vs female voice, key word (e.g. binaural), with or without music, even preview the voice. With Calm, there is no way to do that. You can only pick a category, like sleep or mediation. I prefer sleep meditations with music, but I have to literally play at least 30 seconds of each and every one or ff to see if it has it. I’ve already canceled my subscription to ensure it won’t renew next year because not at all worth full price at $70 when other apps for way less or free have better navigation and functionality.
Where as this been all my life I love the sound of the rain it’s so calming and relaxing. I’ve found my happy place.
My work has offered calm as a benefit and I am so glad I took the time to look into it a bit more seriously.
It is now a part of my daily routine, waking up in the morning stretching meditating and before bed to unwind and go to sleep.
Thank you calm.
Free to download but then constantly asks for money for some crappy “calming” videos. Do NOT download this app. It is truly not calming but instead, asks for money and will drain your pockets.
The new rules
You guys are doing great thank you so much and I love calm
I love it to settle down after work
I have a difficult time getting rid of the sounds on this app
I’ve been in here for a week. So far I feel like the have good content. The app is nice and easy to use. It asks you how you’re feeling and it guides you towards a section that hopefully can help you or get to the bottom of your emotions.
I downloaded this to try to find a free meditation app. There are so many subscriptions that I was hoping this free version would be decent. It’s not. In the middle of meditating, and finally getting my body to relax, ADS start playing. Do you know how jarring that is to a nervous system? Listening to calm music and all of sudden loud ads playing! I understand that these apps if free sometimes will have ads.. but geeeeez let people finish listening to a 15 -30 min meditation that you advertise as FREE before playing ads.
Sad that even something that is supposed to help the mental health of people is trying to first find a way to make money off of you
I was offered $10 a year through Tmobile. I paid for it and logged in though my Apple ID like it requested. In doesn’t recognize my purchase and keeps asking me to sign up for $70 a month. I then started getting spam emails telling me I can sign up for $40. The irony is that the app is called “Calm” which caused me hours of frustration and troubleshooting is almost funny. Almost……
Over priced. Not willing to pay $80.
I’d rather pay monthly and cancel when I want to
Calm helps me sleep, focus,relax, and all the above! I really recommend it.
I’m not sure what happens in these stories because I typically fall to sleep before they end. I wake hours later with my Bluetooth face mask half off my face feeling very rested .All of the story tellers voices are so calm and just relaxing it really works . Since I’ve gotten older I find it harder and harder to shut my mind off , listening to this at night is making my sleep more restful .
I really wanted to try the app.
Everything, I clicked on wanted me to subscribe.
I’m tired of being hijacked to give up data & payment information, just to try an app.
Good luck with the rest good day at home doing a lunch day or next year if we are doing a lunch
Love love you miss miss you guys too love you miss you too baby love love you love miss love you love love miss you guys
Between the noise of daily life and the struggle and stress that life brings, this app is my oasis. I begin each day and, sometimes throughout the day by stopping to let go of everything. It keeps me grounded.
Great but too many of the tracks have talking. Would rather no talking and just noise or music
The ads for the game are dangerous for me.
When I heard the brown noise it makes me not breath, and it stressed me out even more.
It’s a problem for me, but I understand if it helps others.
Just not me.
I like white noise but the brown noise is kinda bad.
If someone has the same anxiety problems as me, it might be dangerous.
For a paid version of something, the expectation was better content. Better stories read by better narrators for preferably 30-90 minutes.
Just subscribe and spend the money! Falling asleep to these stories or nature sounds is wonderful! I love being lulled to sleep by these story tellers and their wonderful voices. I never get to the end of the story … because I’M ASLEEP! Best app ever invented! Slept like a baby minus the thumb sucking and bed wetting.
Can’t get the free soundscapes anymore. That’s ridiculous.
Calm is truly a healthy attachment Namaste
Purchased premium and says to log in under email used to purchase. That’s the email I used still it doesn’t work. Attempted to contact customer support and it wouldn’t let me email them or start a chat. Never again. Beware if your considering it.
I love Calm! It is one of my must-have apps, my favorites are the Sleep Stories and I always look forward to the frequent additions to the collection!
I do wish I am able to access Sleep Stories through my Watch app and/or download certain sleep stories in advance! This is nice for when I don’t want to wake up from my phone screen or risk getting distracted again.
Thank you Calm Team!!! Keep up the great work!!!
I once thought this app was a good way to actually help stay calm. Unfortunately this is no longer the case. I was paying $69.99 a year for features that are actually free. I decided to cancel. It’s been a few months since I’ve had the service.
On October 8th I get a message saying “here’s a 7 day trial to come back to Calm on Us” after the 7 day trial I would be charged $69.99 for the year premium account. Low and behold I was charged immediately. I notified apple as well as calm and both sides are putting up their hands like they can’t do anything.
Do yourself a favor DO NOT PAY FOR THIS APP OR TAKE ANY SPECIAL PROMOTIONS FROM THEM. THEY WILL STEAL YOUR MONEY.
When I open calm it makes me feel welcome and safe. And every one
Everywhere should be able to feel that so get calm it helps in so many ways for people like sleeping and calming also it help people who are alone and have know one to listen to so just thank you.
Love the low level sounds of the rolling thunder, the deep tones relax me
just lovely...worth the money $10 which i got from tmobile tuesday app !!! thanx for lovely app and the offer !! love to evryone !!!
Used T-Mobile offer to get a year for $10. I keep getting “error while logging in with Apple”
I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled and turned phone off and on. Nothing. Just robbed me of $10
Love this app.
Helps my anxiety
Has some nice spoken relaxation segments, that are quite well done. Also a lot of natural sound segments, rain, distant thunder. My main complaints are: Not enough spoken content, and of those they are very brief - less than 10 minutes. Calm is a captive app, you can't download useful content to any other app like iTunes. So if you find a spoken exercise that really helps you, you have to maintain the Calm app account to listen to it. There is a lot of sound files that seem to be there as 'filler' as opposed to useful spoken content. Finally, the price is ridiculously high for what you get.
I had calm for 2 or 3 years. It’s has help me in alot situations. It helps me in different problems, I have . My husband is diagnosed with cancer with calm and dr , I tend to get some help is hard to take Thank Calm.
Since the moment I began meditating and listening to calm music,soundscapes, and sleep stories (Ya! It’s not just meditating lol) I’ve felt a peace settle over me! I’ve endured a lot of pain and suffering in my life and I recommend this to anyone even if you haven’t suffered severe trauma. I think young kids would benefit the most. Thank you everyone from calm I hope you feel my gratitude 💜
I don’t associate calm with crickets. This is especially true for the meditation recordings. I have Calm set to Spanish so perhaps it’s not on the English recording. It really ruins the experience of an otherwise great app.
They may pay a monthly subscription for after supposed to help with depression
Perfect for Mr right now.
The sleep stories, meditations, etc with great narrators are just that - great! They’re really effective and I love the variety of offerings within each category. How. Ev. Er. I don’t know if she created the app and therefore voices many of the pieces, but Tamara Levitt’s voice makes my skin crawl. (I really mean no offense if you’re reading this Tamara! I’m sure you’re a wonderful kind human and I appreciate you!) It feels sickly sweet and overly gentle, the vocal fry and flirty lilt make it impossible for me to focus on the meditation. Like at all. It feels very self-conscious and fake. Like a Dove chocolate commercial. That’s obviously not the intention, it’s just way too much of a performance of a meditation guide for me. Other than that-love the app!
Invest in yourself by learning to be kind to yourself.
Calm is the most helpful app I’ve had in a long time! It helps me get rid of any stress in general. I love yoga and meditating, so this app seemed perfect for me. We got the app and it has done nothing but make my life easier ever since the day I got it. I love it’s so much! I definitely recommend it!
The free version of this app is an utter joke. You get access to literally nothing. I saw an ad for this app showing “brown noise” to help fall asleep quicker and the only way to actually access anything is to pay. Garbage app and not worth the time wasted downloading.
I’ve loved Calm for years, but the latest update broke the app on my iPad. Now when I go to play a sleep story and close the lid on my iPad, within 10 seconds the story stops playing. If I leave the cover open, when the screen timeout goes to sleep, the story stops playing. I can tell you this frustration is the opposite of Calmness. Please fix it soon and I’ll change my rating to 5 stars.
Update: They fixed the bug I reported to their support team.
This is the best I’ve ever slept. I have never ever slept like this. Keep up the good work!
When you decide you will not renew… the only choice the App gives you, is to renew… all my other subscriptions allow a choice (thus I’m at the right place for the transaction) … to me that is a major scam…
Too many ads and pop ups
Calm App is pretty great. My only issue is after a few days of use, the playlists quit working. You start a playlist, it plays the first song, and goes back to the home screen. The only fix I found is to delete the app, and redownload. That gets old quick. 5/2/23, Im back redownloading the app because the playlists stopped working. 5/20/23, back yet again to redownload because the playlists stopped working. 8/28/23, here we are again. Playlists stop working again after one song. 10/8/23, playlists quit working again. Time to delete the app and reinstall. Will this ever get fixed?
They’ve been releasing a lot of new sleep stories lately, with celebrities like Harry Styles and P!NK. The stories and sounds are so relaxing and put me right to sleep. I use it almost every night it is an addiction. It fills my sleepy mind with magical stories as I drift off to sleep. It’d be so cool of you had someone like Taylor Swift on there though. I’m listening to a sleep story right now while writing this review!
I love the variety. I can always find exactly what I’m looking for. There are always new artists to listen to.
I love this app but, there is so much that requires premium and I hate to complain but what if you can’t afford/don't want to pay so much i would like it if you could take offers and have a little less premium stuff
Thank you 🙏
I had tried a free trial subscription to Calm premium in the past, and I decided that I did not have enough time to use it so I declined the regular subscription. When the time was up this time they offered me another free trial subscription for 5 to 7 days andI was immediately charged for it and the money was taken out of my account, this is a not cool move
Great app to help you stay on track and maintain motivation to work on your meditation practice.
I've used this app for some time and have enjoyed every moment of it. The options to suit your needs (anxiety, focus, sleep, etc.) provide something for everyone. I highly recommend this app to always have calm moments available to you when you need it! I also recommend this app to my clients as something to try and potentially integrate into their daily routine.
I have used Calm since 2019 and I have loved it. My running streak is over 600 days. But for them to increase the price when the majority of Americans are literally living paycheck to paycheck is something I will not stand for. F your corporate greed. There’s plenty of free meditations and sleep stories on YouTube. I’m out.
This is a wonderful app for my husband and I because it helps us with our meditation practice and helps us to focus more on us ❤️🏼❤️ Thanks to the calm app
I have long been told that mindfulness would help my anxiety and ADHD (51 year old adult here), but every time I tried over the years it was so boring and simply maddening to just sit and try not to be distracted. Calm isn’t like that at all! I do the walking meditations and the moving meditations, I listen as I lay in bed at night and I’m doing it often enough I can listen to the meditations while I do other activities such as drive and just focus on listening and breathing. It’s a game changer and I’m learning to let go of my anxiety and panic. Thank you!
Really enjoy your stories they last 45 minutes. The ones that travel thru natural Settings are my favorites.
I start my day with a lesson and a great sense of peace in that stays with me.
I love this app,me my sister and my mom use it and it gives of great device and motivational things this app changed the way I think I hope more people use this app because it is life changing and it helps me fall asleep get motivated and meditat on what I am thankful for.
I went to sleep in 10 min in the book
I am glad I decided to include this into my self care regimen. Great App
Calm is part of my daily morning routine. I’m forever greatful for the ground fullness, patience, serenity and compassion it has helped me to acknowledge for myself and all around me.
I have had trouble falling asleep for 45 years. I am 51 now. Ever since I found the Calm website, I fall asleep with ease. I am so grateful to finally have a good night’s sleep. What a joy it is to say good night.
This app has helped me in more ways than I can list. If you are considering, do it, after all the best investment is always in yourself!
Amazing app, just wish it had a queue, or something similar. So that I don’t have to switch it every time a meditation finishes.
This app is amazing! I come home after a long day a busy work and go on calm and listen to my favorite videos. I live this app because it makes me feel calm and relaxed while only taking a few minutes! This app is a 10/10 would recommend!
The app was okay. Paid the $1 trial and didn’t really like it then cancelled my subscription via the App Store cause that’s an option a few days ago. Got charged $70 today. Can I get a refund cause the iPhone App Store told me I canceled it and removed it from my subscription and my subscription was supposed to be canceled.
It is what it is and then it gets better and better. I thank you 🙏
I love the rain storms and this one is perfect for relaxing and calming.
I have been utilizing the Calm app for the last four days. My wife had suggested I tried using this, but my manly persona kept me from trying to take this seriously. At this point, I have no other options other than to seek out meditation to clear my head each day. So far this has been so helpful thank you to the creators that assembled this app.
Nice relaxing guitar music! And other instrumentals!
I was introduced to Calm in 2015 to help me sleep. Since that time I have found it as a resourceful tool to lull me to sleep, relieve pain through guided breathing, meditate more often, and usher peace with a vast array of soundscapes. It did not take me long to upgrade. Though I have a couple of other similar wellness apps, I have never been compelled to get rid of Calm. It is a great wellness enabler.
As a cancer patient, a friend recommended Calm. It wasn’t a good fit for me, but at the end of week’s trial, an annual subscription fee was automatically charged. Attempts to switch to monthly were futile. I could cancel, but told I would continue to access the program for the remainder of the year, in essence non-cancellable with no refund. Trial subscriptions can be ideal to test, but this App not having customer support has proved disappointing.
I’ve had this app, free to my fingertips (with my work affiliation), for the last couple years. Never used it..until 2 weeks ago. It’s helped with my sleep sooo much! Especially when I wake up at 2-3am, when my mind is spinning, I play one of the “fall back asleep”
Simulations, and it works like a dream. This has been a game changer
I got a notification from Calm at a mysteriously Perfect time. I’ve looked at the app before but wasn’t sure if I wanted to subscribe to something else that was just another app. I listen to the notification and I automatically felt some thing so I decided to try it for a little bit and see if it helps and then make my decision to go on with it or not, as a way to rewire my thinking and left more positively. I am one of those people who suffers from anxiety so much that it pretty much ruins my life. I am a very spiritual person, and all my intent and thoughts are on reaching a goal, and never giving up. So I’m deciding to try this application. With hopes that com can help me as they claim. I never set up notifications on my phone because it goes off all day and drives me crazy but I’m going to put calm on a notification so I know when it rings that it’s calm. I pray and believe that I can get help from Calm. If anyone’s really reading this, please set me up any way you can to help me out because I have a mother to take care of a family to take care of and a house to take care of along with many many other things, and I want to be able to live again and do those things better than I do already with my problem. I will put 110% into every word and every practice on this app. Please consider the people that really need this help and try to help me out as best you can. That’s all I can ask. Thank you for sending a notification. At the exact right time. I’m ready to do the work. I’ve been doing the work on my own, but I need guidance. God bless and have a wonderful day as I will also try to do. Thank you.
This app helps me relax and calm down - I just love it !
I tried this app out for awhile with a free trial. I canceled my subscription before it was supposed to charge me and it still tried to charge me days after I canceled. It's been well over a month since I canceled my subscription and it's still attempting to charge me for another month of the premium. This is a known issue according to the BBB. Many people are being charged after they cancel their subscriptions.
Do NOT download this app if you value your hard earned money.
Calm allows you to fav good tracks, but doesn’t allow you to down vote bad ones. As good tracks allow you to let go and not focus on them I don’t tend to fav them but would appreciate being able to mark or delete bad tracks that pull you out of meditation
I love the calms you make😍😍😍❤️❤️👍👍👍👍💯💯💯😯😯😇😇😇
From stories to sounds to meditation. You have everything you need here and it’s a game changer. I love this app so much!
I started using Calm 3 years ago during one of the lowest points in my life. What a difference it has made for me!
The sleep stories are amazingly beautiful and effective, the guided meditations perfect for beginners or seasoned meditators and the inspirational bits just what I need when I’m feeling down.
My favorite is the Daily Trip with Jeff. Love all his series, especially the beginner ones. He literally teaches the fundamentals of meditation in such an easy and unpretentious way.
I am very grateful to all the creators and contributors behind this app.
I can be sure to get in at least a 5 min meditation daily with calm. The sleep stories and guided sleep narratives are varied - there’s something here for everyone. Highly recommend.
Calm is AMAZING! The sleep stories are great for kids and adults! Love it so much!
In my daily hectic life it’s nice to know I can always find CALM and hang out for a while.
I’ve had this app for like two years and it’s helped me sleep great.
I am enjoying this specifically during my morning excercise routine. It helps me to start my day with a calm and relaxed mood. However, I wish there were more than 9 songs of these: Can you extend the playlist library with more of the ‘easing anxiety’, such as Golden Sky, Prism Moon, Selene etc (I don’t mean the EMDR)
I just loved these stories they make me pass out and I just am so calm. In fact I’m listening to one as we speak that’s how much I love these stories.
Awesome I love it. Very Helpful. Would recommend;)
Life changing one day at a time. The philosophers, teachers and brilliant musicians of Calm are a blessing!
It always helps whenever I’m stressed
I am a health care worker that lives on a pager. My sleep is disturbed regularly by getting woken up in the middle of the night. I used to lye in bed unable to fall back to sleep. Knowing I would be exhausted when I had to go to work the next day. Calm changed that! Listening to a sleep story helps me to fall back to sleep quickly. It’s comforting to know I have this app to help me on those nights.
Many thanks Jeff for my daily expanding energy.
Want more new realistic and human sleep stories rather than the ones with mythical creatures.
This app has helped me so much and has changed the meditation game for me. If you are considering the app just go for it! You won’t regret it!
I love this app, although I’m not the biggest fan of the subscription. If you don’t purchase the subscription you only get access to 20 things at the most, and there all meditations. I would like to have some stories to listen to, as well as music. To me I love to have music to listen to while I sleep, that’s why I got this app. I can’t use that though. Except for that for anyone who meditates or stuff like that this is the app for you! Thank you❤️
Love love love my daily calm app
I really like Calm & especially its soundscapes. But I miss the ‘how are you feeling’ screen that left with the latest update. It allowed me to do a quick self-check as I opened the app. Consider bringing it back, please.
I love the premium version of this app. It is absolutely worth it. The design is gorgeous and comforting, I truly feel at ease after listening to the water background style that I chose.
My only critique is that Mel's Movement Moments need to be longer. 4-7 minutes is not enough time to connect deeply with your body if you are seeking guided movement. I use movement for meditation primarily and would love to see longer options, even 1 or 2 sessions!
Calm is always there, this subtle CALMing presence lurking quietly in the background, or gently reminding me that there is a teeny space right before me where I can write large words, think quietly about important matters, and just reflect and breathe. . .
Good sleep storied. Soundscapes are relaxing
I use the app only for sleep. For sleep the selection of music / sound is small and the main long play track 432 for sleep has bells and chimes. Dear Calm, bells and chimes are used as ALARMS not sleep aids. Not worth the $70 for me.
Listening to calm at night helps me fall asleep, the wind,rain and waves help so much 👍🙏
The layout change stinks. I liked having the shortcuts right on the home page (dailies, sleep, meditation, work etc). Easily accessible. Buy with the recent update they just disappeared and had to go hunting for them and eventually found them on the discover page, which was frustrating and not conducive to calm mindset. Why move these shortcuts?? Seems completely unnecessary to change the app layout that people become accustomed to and depend on when they open the app.
Recommend for sure. So many great choices breath breath work, kids meditation, and daily move.
I think you should have more options for people who can afford your app. Anxiety and mental health is a real thing! I would love using the app if there more options then me having to pay for. Most people who having mental health don’t have the option or the means to pay for little things like this that could help more than you could image. Start sponsoring ads and have us watch some ads to unlock some features (like most apps do) stop trying to earn money off of people’s mental health problems!
So calming and relaxing, but also fun my daughter loves it
I use this app every day . To calm down myself or my puppy. Listen to the mediation apps, stories and music. This is a must have.
Have been using the app for over a year. It has made a major difference to my stress levels. Now, you have to put in effort and try to really at least try to believe that it will help, but build the mindful tools and daily calm habit and you won’t be dissipointed! It is very inspired by real Psychology as well, so these are proven effective tools
Starting my day with Daily calm’s breathing exercises and positive messages, helps me to center and connect with myself before facing the day’s challenges. I feel more mentally capable to take on stress and pressure.
Helped me calm down during a panic attack
There are Zero widgets after the update…
Brilliant and hypnotic, please ask this artist to make more🙏
In my opinion clam has saved my life. It gives me something to be accountable to everyday. I set a goal to do it everyday for a year. I missed one day on a misunderstanding. I’m very thankful for this app. It has made a difference in my life. Thank you
Downloaded the app. All it says on the screen is to take a deep breath. That's it. No nothing. Left it on for 5 minutes to see if the screen would change ... nope!
Constantly wants you to upgrade so I’m uninstalling ASAP!
Just what I needed!
I just adored everything about this app. It’s my grounding beacon. Love it. I can’t leave without the soothing voice of Tamara Levitt. ❤️
Has made a difference in my daily existence- thank you Jeff.
The app is an excellent tool to add to your toolkit or coping skills so to speak. Incorporated into my daily routine it is a very effective quick way to check in to manage my stress and any other emotion I experience. As a licensed clinician working in the mental health field I have a duty to take care of myself above all things. Calm helps me relieve the stress of the work day and reminds me that I can only help others if I am at my best. Being centered and ready to take on the day with happiness, enthusiasm, and passion is the foundation of my existence. Adding Calm to my tool box, bag of tricks, or coping skills no matter what language you use this is a valuable addition to your self-care routine.
Thank you for your trust. This is was so helpful and healing. 😊🙏🏿❤️
This app is great for what I need. But I didn’t like how the option of giving a review kept showing up when I opened the app. Almost felt like I was forced to give a review. (I need some time to decide how good the app may be - that way I’m able to give a more concise review.)
CALM is a necessary tool for todays stressors!
I love the app. But it costs a little too much. I’m a therapist and I recommend apps for relaxation to my clients. But yours is kind of pricey.
I just started using this app consistently & I’m really liking it to help deal w/ life stressors at the moment. The only thing I struggle with is I don’t find most of the narrators voices calming or relaxing (but great content!). It would be really nice if there were different options & customers could change to whatever voice they respond to better. Other then that fantastic & worth the subscription price.
Wish to feel safe….less anxiety
The Calm app has truly transformed my daily routine. It’s my go-to for finding peace and relaxation amidst life’s chaos. The guided meditations and sleep stories are a game-changer for my sleep quality. The soothing sounds and beautiful visuals transport me to a serene place whenever I need it. I appreciate the variety of content, from mindfulness exercises to stress relief techniques. Calm has become an essential part of my self-care journey, and I couldn’t recommend it more highly. Thank you for creating this oasis of tranquility in my busy life!
Why provide lot of options, just 1 or 2 can make it easier. Everything is 2 to 5mins why there is nothing with 10-15mins.
No proper segmentation. Everything is scattered around
Meditations are excellent
Sleep stories are saving my life, thank you
I have been using Calm for years to center myself in the morning help me fall asleep at night
This app makes my day
Every night I go to sleep he put the Calm app I even listen to some songs or sleep story. They always help me get to sleep very quickly. I highly recommend this app. All the other things are amazing.
I started using the calm app when I was struggling and things were falling apart. Now I start my day off by meditating with the calm app. I listen to Tamar’s daily calm and it helps me to focus on what I want to concentrate for self improvement. Calm has helped me to make self care a priority which has improved my relationships with my family and friend. I live more in the moment that helps me to respond with kindness and compassion instead of react with anger and hurt. I now enjoy my own company and am learning to treat myself like I would treat my friends. Calm app has gently encouraged me to reflect on myself and the positive changes just followed. I look forward each morning to start my day listening to Tamara and then now also squeeze in Daily Jay and session with Jeff.
There are some really good speakers and stories uncommon but there are also some juvenile horrible speakers on Calm and we should be able give them a thumbs up or thumbs down, The Daily, Jay for instance, just sounds contrived and fake a lot of these people seem like they’re just reading a simple script. Their voices are a fake and soothing as chalk on a board. And get more adult stories some of these sound like I’m on the Disney Channel.
Only three days into using this Calm app and I am very pleased with it. I suffer from insomnia and tinnitus. The tools on here for relief are abundant. I especially like all the various options. And there is lots of positivity type messages and stories. Thank you for creating this app.
Really good for stress
It is awesome because it helps me sleep and calms me down ☺️
Love this section ❤️❤️
Just getting started with Calm, so far am enjoying learning new relaxation techniques and am looking forward to learning more. Such a great way to relax and reflect during a busy day.
I’ve tried to incorporate meditation into my life so many times over the years, yet only since starting with the Calm app have I succeeded. The app has so much variety — from 1-minute to much longer guided meditations, varying approaches and diverse teachers or meditation leaders. There’s always something helpful there. I’ve gone from just the Daily Jay (Jay Shetty) mindfulness lessons to now turning to the Calm app 3 times most days - a mindful start with the Daily Jay, a midday break with one of the work-related meditations or one of the nap programs, and an evening mindfulness check-in. Everyone around me sees the difference. Most importantly, I see the difference. I’m coming up on 365 consecutive days of this, and I’m not going to stop.
This helps me to relax and get rid of all the negative energy and feel better for my day or for a better sleep at night
I’m pretty sure I can do this with more of this app. I need more practice though.
Its OK to set reminders.
Hearing rain always calms me
Easy to follow
I love it. BUT, almost every thing is locked.
I wish there were more things we could try for free and without signing up. Thank u for using your time reading this..
I have been a premium subscriber and have a streak close to 1500 days obviously works for me
Colm is Epic
I absolutely love sleep stories but was wondering why on earth you would distort Michael Griffith’s incredibly perfect voice on the latest Humphrey story. His voice on earlier recordings was just right. Oh Calm, you do so disappoint sometimes….but you still get 5 stars.
great to fall asleep to for a deep sleep and wake up feeling better every morning
I have used the app daily for about 2 years. It really has a positive effect.Now on day 919. I stop for a bit, but it is a gift each time I come back to the daily clam.
any pointers appreciated.
You can find variants of all of this on YouTube and your preferred streaming service. It’s fine and does the trick, but this isn’t “all that”. Yeah, your favorite actor talks calmly to you, but it’s not going to fix what your music app can’t already do itself. Peek around, it’s not worth the money.
I’d like to see the ability to make a playlist. I wake up a lot and it’s too quiet. I like the stories. I’d like to make a playlist of stories that would play all night. Most existing playlists only last about 6 hours. I need something that lasts longer than that, preferably stories that I can choose.
…specifically I am thinking about wishing I could block a certain speaker’s meditations etc from showing up in my feed. I found her voice to be very grating, and it is not conducive to relaxation to have to keep scrolling bc I can’t quickly find an appropriate meditation without her leading it.
I downloaded Calm and was subscribed, without my knowledge, to an annual subscription.
A wonderful way to relax your mind and body.
I love going to sleep to a bedtime story! I can’t afford to get the premium stories. But when I had just signed up, I was able to listen to some wonderful stories told by some well known people. It was so good!
Calm is a great app to use to explore your mind and help you get happier and meditate
I love the variety of options, and that you can mark those you particularly enjoy! My complaint, however, is you can't mark something that you didn't like it. It's nice that you can see your favorites all together but it would be nice to see which ones you do not want to try again
I really like this app. It allows you to be able to meditate, practice mindfulness, listen to sounds when trying to fall asleep, and practice techniques to work on anxiety and stress. Not only that, it is very aesthectically pleaasing to the eye. This app is easy to navigate through. I also like that this app is availavle for people of all ages to use. The app is a bit pricey, but the free portion of the app is enough to use if you do not want to pay for it. I suggest using the 7-day free trial to see if you want to pay for it, or if you just want to stick with the free app.
I’ve been using this since elementary, and I cannot sleep with out it tbh! And I’m just gonna say what everyone is thinking… ADD MORE BOB ROSS ASMR EPISODES PLS MY GUYS 😂😊 i fr luv the Bob Ross ones!!
Tysm to the amazing creators, editors, and literally anyone who contributes to this amazing project!!! U guys are adored (every single one of u)! U all make this app a little more special!
If you will just use it, you will get results.
As the name suggests, this app helped me feel calmer than I was before using it, but its real gift to me was helping me realize that there’s more space between me and this chaotic world than I thought. What a powerful realization!
WARNING — if you are thinking of signing up for the free 7 day trial, you will be charged for a year’s subscription and you will not be able to cancel and be refunded. Be certain you want this app for a year because by signing up for the free trial you will pay $69.99 and it won’t be refunded if you try to cancel.
I tried the app, didn’t care for it and tried to cancel the next day. There is no way to cancel this ‘free 7 day trial.’ Support is of no help. The only thing I was able to cancel was the annual renewal for next year.
I love to meditate with Jeff Warren every morning. His voice and words help me start my day.
I finish my day with harry styles, because of his lovely soothing voice and story
I also love to take the mindful breaks during the day, any time . There’s always something on calm to help me live my life better and more meaningful
Thank you for being here. I will stay as long as my favorites are here . Also Tamara Levit she very god also
I absolutely love the CALM app! It has truly transformed my daily life for the better. The soothing meditations and sleep stories help me unwind after a long day, and the mindfulness exercises keep me grounded and focused. The app's user-friendly interface makes it easy to navigate, and the variety of content ensures there's always something to suit my mood. CALM has become an essential part of my self-care routine, and I can't recommend it enough for anyone seeking peace and relaxation in their hectic lives. Thank you, CALM, for making mindfulness and tranquility so accessible!
I use it to center me, help me focus, guide my sleep, and self-regulate. I think it’s equally important to manage your mind and your body. I love the calm app!
The app is generally good, and there is a lot of variety for the types of meditation and voices you find the most helpful. My issue is that the app continues to reset my notification settings, alerting me for calm resets and check-ins even after I repeatedly turn these settings off. One reminder a day keeps me coming back, but more than that and I end up ignoring all of them (including the one I want). Once this is fixed I would give the app 5 stars.
I clicked on “7 day free trial” and was instantly charged $69.99 for a year subscription.
If you can afford Lebron James you should be able to afford to hire experienced Black American, Latinx, Asian, Indigenous, & Pacific Islander people and voices. POC deserve the comfort and usefulness of hearing folks of our experiences speaking about our experiences. LGBTQA+ presence is also lacking. How is it 2023 and you aren’t doing this?
I have been using the Calm app for several years now. Calm provides so many wonderful options for slowing down and great bedtime stories that never fail to put me to sleep. I really appreciate Calm and all of the exceptionally talented people
who participate in our well-being.
I just started but I’m joying this so far
I love this app! Not only do I use it for myself to unwind or relax but sometimes my class of 25- 5 years olds can get a little overwhelming so we take a meditation break. The kids wind down and it really helps. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Loved this app loved the high quality sleep stories, except now their is a lag in new content! Rarely a new one that’s good. I’ve honestly started using “Get Sleepy” app bc they have a great new story once or twice a week, takes Calm a month or 2 for one….
Great after using Calm.
for an entire year if you let your free trial date go by. I should have known by the name that this app isn’t for me because I’m already a calm person, just looking for some occasional help falling asleep. I threw money down the drain—my own fault, I guess.
I’ve used Calm for years now and LOVE it!
One critic: I used to be able to hit play on a play list and listen to the whole thing. Now, it stops after only one track and I have to continually go back and select the next song. Is there a fix for this? Am I missing a setting somewhere? Please fix!!!
It’s free to download only, but you can’t actually use the app in any way without paying like 10$ a month. Literally all options are locked save for the main menu.
Charged $70 for yearly account, then told me to spend another 70 to unlock the thing I just paid for lol
So far I had access to renew my membership thru my employer for &14.99. Could never got it activated so I paid 49.99 to get access but it is still not working like it did before and talks about premium membership. I’ve paid plenty. I made calls and e-mails to try and get it fixed. I want the number to calm so I can talk to someone I’m person. I have been very sick and really need this app to calm me down. Please someone help me?
Love Calm for sleep and relaxation
Without it I wouldn’t be able to sleep at all!
Filed a report with Apple and Bank.
Says in App Store, and on iPhone subscriptions as valid for one year but when trying to open premium or restore purchase options it just says to sign in with the Apple ID used to purchase…
This is my one iPhone with one 20 year+ Apple ID. As someone who has purchased hundreds of apps, this is the first time none of the normal recovery steps work (as an IT Professional).
Tried this app for one reason only: walking meditations on my Apple Watch. Ready for my walk, I started up the app, selected my walk duration, and hit play. Nothing ever started playing. Tried multiple times for over 5 minutes and the content just never loaded. I thought maybe the cellular connection on my watch was poor, but when I opened Apple’s Fitness app, I was able to start playing a Time to Walk episode right away that I hadn’t previously downloaded or anything. Tried Calm again when I got home. Still wouldn’t load. Canceled my free trial and uninstalled the app.
Love it but can u plzzzzzz add sleep story narrated by Taylor Swift?!!??!
Dear calm- I’ve been using the app with a paid subscription for 2 years and recommend it highly to all. I use it every day. I would like to see more meditations to use for my patients and their caregivers during cancer and cancer treatments and geared toward cancer patients. There’s only 1 right now and it talks about how meditation is so important and useful for cancer patients and caregivers. Would like to see a series something uplifting for cancer patients please.
This app is very calming its good for naps and going to sleep. Great for kid. Adults too!!! Love this app
Paid subscription, cant log in!!! Have sent three e-mails with my receipt from Apple to Calm… Three days no response!!! Not feeling very Calm!!!
Be aware that the app it’s OK I’ve seen better. I’ve seen worse, but after the trial. They charge you for an entire year not a month not a couple weeks an entire year and you don’t get that money back.
I have listened to “CALM” for over 3 years. I. LOVE. IT! Just as soon as I hear. HER voice I relax. Please don’t ever go away💖💖💖💖
I use this app for my daily morning meditation, the “Open-ended” meditation; and it no longer syncs with them Apple Health app. I retried resetting, uninstalling and nothing works. The app is now subpar.
First off, I would like to say everyone is different and how this app effects them may vary. In my experience though it has helped me so much with my anxiety. It’s helped me sleep better and just feel much better about myself. I was struggling the last couple months with anxiety and it was causing me panic attacks and I started to get full blown insomnia. For two weeks I had totaled at 8 and a half hours of sleep the whole week (not one night). My cousin gifted me a yearly subscription for this app and genuinely have never been more grateful. If you have the resources to spend on this app and you really need it, I would definitely recommend giving it a chance. If you don’t have the money I’m not sure what the free version is like but it may be good. And a word of advice, also use resources outside the app for help as well! You got this and stay strong!
It was so good and relaxing. I loved it.
A lot of fluff and zero substance. There are much much better apps out there m.
So, i have been listening and enjoying sleep stories for years but there is one that is completely and totally possesses me for a long time.. It’s not just the voice of narrator and it he certainly not his looks lol.. but the story itself. Today, i am in Paris and it’s raining.. and i never thought i would enjoy as much as i do today, the day as it goes now.. Thank you for emotions it evoke and for the memories associated with your story.
The number of times this app peer pressures you to share stresses me out. I cant indulge in a single mindful moment or in a deep thought without getting right hooked in the face with a request to share.
Don’t get me wrong, this is an amazing app and I use it all the time… but.. the ads are showcasing a little more and I wish not paying gave us at least 10 or 20 more playlists..
1. Incorporate some in-app method to allow suggestions
2. Levar Burton’s talents are wasted: slow the speed of his sleep stories so that we can relax. Slow.it.down. (And then slow it down some more)
3. Add more time to the sleep stories: fade volume at 40 min, 50 min, off at 60 min
I was under the impression that the app was free for teachers. I’d appreciate any help in that regard.
The golden hour mix is gone and that was my favorite part of the app. So are the other mixes which I really enjoyed. Hope they bring them back.
A positive change in me in just 3 days.
I really like Calm. My sister could use it more than me but it’s too expensive. If it was only $30 a year, I would get it for her. Can it be installed on a track phone?
Thank You God.
I don’t mean to renew in it charged me $74.19 I just want my refund please help!
I got the app in hopes of sleep as I’ve suffering with anxiety and awful reoccurring memories, I not to find every single thing I click requires me to sign up for the premium free trial…idek what is free! Ridiculous, a horrible experience.
I really like this app it helps me fall asleep because it’s really hard for me to sleep so this is very helpful.
This app is very helpful for me. I have trouble sleeping sometimes due to ADHD and anxiety, but the sleep stories and infinite ambient music really make it easy to be well-rested and happy.
This app has helped me to create so much space and awareness, mentally and physically! I love how they add new sessions with new mindful curators to keep things new and interesting. I love the daily move… I’ve been a subscriber for years now and I can hardly imagine life without it! I love the daily streaks counter, and the automatic mindful minutes calculator. Thank you calm.
Very relaxing. I look forward to doing meditation every day
My life has been a real struggle for me for the past 2 years. The past 8 months have been horrible. Had it not been for this site I’m not sure I would be here. Thank you for all the wonderful work that you do.
You truly are saving lives. Between Calm and therapy I can stay focused and know that there really is more out there!
Thank You Truly you will never know what you have done!
I rely on my Calm app every single night to help me fall asleep. I have not even begun to use this wonderful offering to its fullest! Looking forward to discovering the gems to be discovered…Love the Calm app!!!
Laying back with rain scapes and city rain sounds and they sound so immersive embrassive realistic like walking through a rainy night just like the selection
Have a few meditation apps, but I keep coming back to this one! It has all soundscapes, sleepscapes, check ins, etc. Absolutely love how fresh this app still feels, no matter how many times I use it. Have not recommended any other app more than this one Also, falling asleep to Idris Elba’s voice is quite nice
After hearing recommendations for this app I redownloaded it and signed in with my apple account. I even selected to subscribe for a year with a 40% off discount only to be charged the regular price of 69.99 instead of 41.99!!! THEN in the app it says all Premium content is still locked! I turned off the phone, logged out, logged in and NOTHING! Still all content locked out! I'm out 69.99$ and already requested a refund to Apple which I'm praying they accept because this is beyond stressful and unnaceptable. FIX YOUR APP THAT IS SUPPOSED TO CALM PEOPLE NOT STRESS THEM!
But I’ve only started using it regularly in the last few weeks. It’s exceptional & I’m enjoying splitting my meditations between Calm and Breethe.
Calm’s customer service is terrific as well and that is huge in my book. We needed a refund on the yearly for my mother who didn’t really need it & they kindly refunded the accidental purchase. Top notch app! Worth every penny.
More peace than i’ve ever felt in my life!
