The app used to work great offline, now it will not allow you to access your downloaded offline music unless you connect to the internet first. Very disappointed as I really enjoyed the offline function of this app. Plus, the old 1.0 version of the app was better organized, the recent version doesn't say which genre of the music is so it's harder to tell which song is what.
I have only been using the app for a short time (and not as regularly as I’d like) in an attempt to help with symptoms of a sleeping disorder. I haven’t used all of the features available but so far, I haven’t had to pay for any of the content and have had a pretty good variety from which to choose. I’m not using it for meditation, so I can’t comment on the quality of the guided meditation, but I do enjoy the sleep stories. The one drawback for me is that the narrator voices are limited at this time, which is why it is only rated with four stars at this time. I’m not a fan of the male voice. He’s not ‘bad’, it’s just not a soothing voice for me as an individual. I’d like to see more choices available of those that are reading/guiding within the app.
Can’t get the meditations to play on my phone.
I'm forever grateful to you guys for creating this amazing app yet giving it for 100% free. I'm just a student with no income to buy expensive apps. I aspire to be a good start-up founder, a leader, making impact in people's life. And this app helps me do that. It gives me peace of mind, unconditional happiness and mindfulness. One day, I'll pay you back in one way I can. Love you guys ☺️❤️
This app allowed me to be able to meditate, sleep, and relax more and the best part about it is that it’s all free. This tells you that this app doesn’t care about money, but instead helping people. The stories are amazing and meditations really help me. The music always makes my day better. Thank you Soothing Pod!
I think the primary goal of this app is to make meditation something everyone can get their hands on. Soothing Pod offers a completely free experience with no ads, which you appreciate very much when you're broke but still want to relax. There are different meditation packs, if you will, filled with different sessions that together teach a skill or guide you in some way (e.g. how to meditate, managing stress, etc.). There are single meditations, sleep meditations, music, sounds, and stories — my personal favorite. They are so, so diverse. Classics like The Little Mermaid and Alice in Wonderland, biographies like that of Anne Frank, and very descriptive audios that just narrate a scene or something. There's stuff for kids and adults alike, and I think they add new things every day as well. And, as I mentioned, all of it is free. No ads, no memberships, no nothing. The develpers clearly want everyone to be able to better themselves at no charge and I really admire that they were able to disregard revenue for that purpose.
The stories help me get to sleep very well! Most amazing sleep app!
I just want to give a shout out to the developers. It’s so refreshing to see a group of people create such a great app and offer it to the public free. Super easy, non cluttered UI, quality meditations and sleep sounds (which I use nightly). Other apps of this quality integrate with Apple Health and the reason I didn’t give 5-stars, but still a great overall app and I will continue to use and gladly log my own minutes in Apple Health.
This app is my new happy place, it’s full of great meditations and lot’s of AWESOME music that just makes your soul travel between worlds. So many positive vibes are in here and i highly recommend it😊👍🏻
This app is a true LIFE SAVER!! It is absolutely wonderful! Beautiful guided meditations, sleep stories, and any kind of soothing nature sounds you could possibly dream of! Customizable to your liking as well. Best part is, I honestly can’t even believe this app is truly totally free! I have clicked on everything and there are no hidden fees or ads anywhere. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU so much for creating this free amazing app!! 🙏🏻😃🤍
