Editors' Notes

As its name suggests, Insight Timer started as a simple timer app for meditating. But it’s evolved into a comprehensive (and award-winning) way to help people reduce anxiety, improve their sleep, and maybe even gain a little insight along the way. It features thousands of guided meditations across a range of styles: Buddhist mindfulness (which channels your inner monk), Kundalini yoga (which focuses on your posture), walking meditation (which is meditation on the move), and many others. Lessons range from just a few minutes to long and luxurious.

Best meditation App by far...

I see three facets to this app that are useful in their own right: 1. thousands of guided meditations, where a practitioner talks you through the practice (particularly useful for beginners), and these are in lengths ranging from one minute to hours (so beginners can start with short periods and progress to longer meditations as they are ready), have varied backgrounds and are delivered by a range of are bound to find some you enjoy. 2. The timer option is highly customisable so you can set the duration, background, and even interval bells/reminders. 3. The data/stats element is terrific for keeping you motivated and ‘honest’, a terrific feature that allows you to track your meditation practice if you want to - this feature, in combination with the timer function, also works offline and the app will automatically update your data when it is next online! Superb, for instance, when on a cruise and you have no internet access but want to maintain your ‘record’. I cannot recommend this app enough. It has meant that I now meditate daily, with significant positive impact on my life, health and well-being. Thank you for making this and keeping it free. 👏

To Dear Insight Timer

Hi to Insight Timer,

Dear Insight Timer, I have been a loyal customer of your service for a while now. And I continue to praise your service with the utmost gratitude. Dear Insight Timer, since I updated this app recently, I have noticed, that there has been changes with the layout of the bookmarked section of the app. I see now you have a list view instead of a tiled view of these bookmarked meditation images, and that you have also placed smaller coloured tiles of the inside of each meditation image. Dear Insight Timer, how I appreciate you. How I love your service. I adore your service and would do anything to help you. It is unfortunately, for me, now, a challenge to try and utilise these bookmarked meditations. As the coloured tiles inserted inside the images make it hard to work with, and the list layout, instead of the tiled view, of the bookmarked section, changes the view as well. Dear Insight Timer, would it be at all possible, if you could add in a free second layout option in the bookmarked list, and without the smaller coloured tiles inserted on top of the images? Just so that people are able to view this original tiled layout, without the smaller coloured tiles that are overlayed on these meditation images? I would be profoundly grateful. I am incredibly grateful for your service and appreciate everything you do 🙏
