Review

Pros!

This app was surprisingly helpful for calming down. I did a five minute deep sleep session right before going to bed, and I slept like a rock that night. It was very convenient since the five minute session is short but effective, so it doesn't take up a lot of your time. The music is also actually calming and doesn't disturb your meditation. It really helps with people who are new to meditation because it gives you exact instructions as to what to do. The app itself has a very calming and well designed interface. It's easy to navigate and is very elegant and pleasing to the eye.


Cons!

The only real problem I found was that you had to pay for certain parts, like having more specialized meditation sessions. You could try a few of them out but you eventually had to pay for premium access and it ranged from $9.99 for a month to $39.99 for a year.

Overall Thoughts

This app made a good impression on me and I'm definitely going to use it in the future. I would also recommend this to other people especially if you're really stressed out. Some of my friends get really stressed out under the weight of school. This app will help you take a few minutes out of your day to relax.
