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 practitioners...you 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. 👏
App not working & bad customer service
I have always enjoyed this app and been a user since it launched, spreading the word to family and friends. However when a problem occurred within my app, including not being able to open meditations, resulting in the app freezing and crashing, meaning I could not at all use the app, I proceeded to contact customer service. Whilst they were prompt in replying, they told me there was nothing they could do to help me. After updating my app to the newest version, things began to stop working. My IOS on my phone was not compatible with the app, despite my phone being a fairly recent model. Many other users have the same IOS as me so this is a common issue, yet they failed to fix the app and make it compatible for users of IOS 10. A simple fix with the product development team would have meant my IOS was compatible, however the team could not do this for me. I would have been happy if being friends able to use the app meant I did not have access to the newest features but I couldn't use it at all. I contacted the team via Instagram and whilst they seemed helpful I was blocked and unable to contact them further. I was kind in my messages all along, understanding that they were a small team, but to be blocked as a customer, when I was only expressing my issues with the app is not ok. I've enjoyed this app since the launch, however the team wasn't helpful or co operative and I can now not use the app.
Developer Response ,
Hi Ella, We're deeply sorry you feel this way about the app and our customer service. As clearly stated in the App Store. Insight Timer is only compatible with iOS 11 and upwards. This is not a quick fix unfortunately. We're a small team doing the best we can. Many thanks.
Previous reviewers have said a lot about the useful features of this app and I therefore won’t repeat those thoughts. I personally use three features: the actual timer, the stats and reward part and the social networking feature. All of them are great. The timer works well and is flexible enough to be adapted to my personal needs. The rewards (not compulsory) are a fantastic motivator to meditate regularly and the social feature (not compulsory either) is gentle and not in your face like Facebook for example. The only slightly negative comment I like to make is about the user interface which I find a bit awkward and slightly confusing in its design. But that’s a minor point; if it would be more elegant and simple I’d give the app 5/5. Recent changes made to the first screen that comes up after a timed session might be a good start for some redesign. Finally: the app is free and the developers have decided to keep it this way unless you choose some enhancements. Good compromise. Overall: I’m very happy with the app!
