Don’t need all the bells and whistles

I want the timer to again state the number of consecutive days I’ve meditated when I press “finish.” Why did they remove this feature? What app developers never seem to understand is “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” P.S. I’ve had this app since before it was a pseudo-social app and it was just a simple, elegant, functioning meditation timer. Update: contacted about the missing consecutive days tracker. Prompt response was, “but it works for me, see?” So I sent a screenshot of my black screen after I press “finish,” and curiously haven’t gotten a response since. Sigh… Update 2: Reinstalled app, to see if it would fix my issue (as suggested). Well, that made the consecutive days come back, but also changed many of my settings. 🙄 Changed my settings back, oh, but wait, now getting the black screen again (after a day). Maybe you can ONLY get the consecutive days tracker if you have “show who you meditated with” enabled (or whatever it’s called). in other words, they are forcing you to engage in the social media aspect of the app. Very frustrating. Seems there is probably some “tech bro millionaire” jealousy going on and the developers really, really want to make this app into a purely financial venture. Good for them?

The best meditation app!!!

5
I have been using this app for several years! It is the best meditation app out there in my opinion! There are so many different kinds of practitioners and teachers from so many different traditions and perspectives. It is truly inclusive and there is something for everyone. The large number of short courses, workshops and live trainings are brilliant! This app has changed my life. I have less strsss sad anxiety, am more grounded, calm, peaceful, balanced, and positive.

How to ruin a perfectly good app...

1
I've been using Insight Timer for many years. It is by far the best meditation timer available on iOS. Over the years the developer has added various other aspects, but the Timer was always front and center. Some of the newer aspects included meditaitons, which I greatly appreciate. I was able to add my favoruites and access timer and mediations from a simple home screen and turn off or ignore the "social" aspects which become more dominant in the app. (No, I dont want to know how many people have meditated with me today!) But the recent update has really turned me off. To start, the app launches with a daily quote. When I wake up in the morning and reach for my phone to start a meditation session, the LAST thing I want is someone's quote floating around in my head. There is no way to turn off this so-called "feature". And now the social aspects are front and center and very annoying. No, I dont want the app to ask me "How are you doing today"! I'd like to suggest to the developer to read the recent comments here as I see that MANY other people are as annoyed as I am. Please do not abandon your roots. Please return the basic simplicity and functionality of the app, and let those who want the other features to access them without (disrespectfully) shoving them in front of everyone's face. Thank you.

Getting worse with every update

This used to be my favorite app. I have a paid subscription so I can download meditations, especially for my son who is an empath and frequently needs help releasing energy. We use the sleep meditations mostly. Over the past 6 months, this app is totally going away from what people come to such an app for. Peace. Simplicity. Meditations. Now it’s a mess of quotes, check-ins, creepy connect with others, and it requires multiple taps/screens to get to what I want to see- my downloaded, bookmarked, meditations. What they call courses or meditations are often just podcast episodes. 🙄I don’t want all that extra stuff that I can see at YouTube or Instagram. I don’t need live performances. I want peaceful meditations. Why can’t you bring that back?! In its current state, I would neither recommend nor believe they deserve awards.

Best one I’ve tried so far

I’ve tried a few apps like this but I could never get into it. The first thing I tried got me hooked

Used to be better, UI has become cluttered

2
You used to just open the app and immediately be able to start or adjust a timer. Now the primary point of the app, the timer, is hidden in some corner. I get that they want to promote the other services, but a timer being started should be one tap away once you open the app.

We didn’t need another social media app

2
I go to insight timer to learn,relax and meditate. Not to be bombarded with random new features, things to buy, and social media. This app update strayed far from the original, was anybody really complaining about it before? No need to fix what’s not broken.

Great meditation tool

I wanted to start meditating and found this app to help me. It is amazing in the diversity of options and love how it has helped me grow.

Forced delay

3
This has been the greatest meditation timer app I’ve used. The recent update, however, forces a delay even if I wish to simply use the timer for meditation or yoga. I know it sounds silly to be rushing to meditate. But the forced quote transition at the beginning is like a bad smell in the room. It requires a greater duration of mindless interaction with the digital device that I want to augment my practice.
