The BEST resource

5
By far one of the best resources to learn how your mind works and all about meditation. I love the mix between theory and practice and Sam Harris’ conversations with so many interesting people. I’ve used other mediation apps in the past but today I do my daily meditations together with Waking Up.

I appreciate how well put together it is.

I have meditated on/off for a year but my first thought after downloading the app is how well put together it is. I have heard of Sam Harris but never looked into it, I appreciate the time they put on app.

Fundamentally paradoxical …

5
It is FUNDAMENTALLY PARADOXICAL 😊 to comprehend how after the Waking Up has helped so many hundreds of thousands (including the families!) of meditators, and after Sam has altruistically given away so much - the app is given One Star rating by some reviewers… Ahh… It is not Free… Yeap… That’s it… When 2022 Ferrari is not free- that’s fine! Even the 3-year old understands that. Well , snap out of it! The Waking Up is the Ferrari of meditating 🧘‍♀️! This is the Mega Winner of all times. The interface is so polished- you will need the sunglasses to navigate!! And the content is beyond this universe. So, the true rating for the app is…. drum roll ….. 1, 000 stars 🌟! A special note of gratitude to Karl for the sensational App Support and instant replies! To the developers: Outstanding!! Bravo!!!!

Reassurance.

Your comment today was very reassuring. I'm not frustrated, but I did not find what your were leading me to find. I hope I will experience what you said that I'll eventually will discover. I'll keep trying without judgement and be patient with myself. Thanks.

Widget squished

Love the app but the bottom point of the head in the square widget is touching the bottom edge of the widget and it makes me uncomfortable

Life Changing

5
As a 30 year old with ADHD, my entire life I had never found meditation to be helpful. Within the first week my perspective on meditation completely changed. Now after using this app fairly consistently over the last 8 or 9 months, I can't stop telling people how helpful it has been and recommending it to everyone. From being able to regulate my mood better, focusing on the present moment, to being less clumsy, these meditations continue to improve my life every day and in ways I never expected.

Beautiful well made app. It’s like Spotify but for meditation, philosophy, etc.

The best app on my IPad so far.

I don’t remember the last time an app changed my life. The only reason I gave this amazing app five stars is because I can’t go any higher. Sam if you are reading this, I simply want to say thank you!

What a shame

I used this app to help me start a meditation practice, and it worked. Who would have thought such a “deep thinker” would have lost his mind from TDS.
