Great meditation practices but ‘streak’ not working
I love this app so far - a really broad range of meditations all categorised by their purpose (aid sleep, manage stress, thrive etc). This makes it easy to use and select fresh practices but the meditation itself remains very true to the ethos - it’s all about bringing back awareness and calming an overthinking mind. BUT the streak function is not working for me: I’ve used the app 4 days in a row to meditate but my streak is showing as 0. This is just a little motivational tool and I’d really like it to work.

Started well, then collapsed
Initially was really pleased to find a free, simple meditation app, but things quickly got frustrating. After a couple of weeks, the app routinely signed me out and I had to keep entering and saving new passwords until in the end I could t remember them and the very act of accessing the app was fraught and so defeating the object. It seems quite glitchy after an initial period of finding voices on the app not annoying- it was all just nicely low key and there was none of this weird lack of speaking ability you get on some other high profile apps. Sad to part company with this, but it’s become too faffy to access, often late at night when I’m trying to sleep. All it says is ‘your session has expired’ when I’ve only just signed in, plus the swirl of doom appears and nothing loads once signed in, which is the their problem. Plus, during meditations I found the recordings randomly stop. I removed anything which might be overloading my phone and still the app didn’t work. It could be really good if these problems were sorted out. I liked the lay-out and the subject areas and types of meditation-use being laid out so I hope they manage to fix them.

I have tried out other popular mindfulness apps on the market and found that these soft-spoken talking techniques work wonderfully for me. What has turned me off has always been the high price tags associated with other apps of this kind on the market. This left me felt like I was stuck between my insomnia and my bank account and unable to find a middle ground.
Enter SmilingMind and it is as if my prayers have been answered. This is a wonderful pp that delivers the same quality content as other apps on the market, only for free! The collection of meditations is (as you would expect) slightly smaller than paid alternatives, but there is still enough to be content with.
My only suggestions for improvement:
• Nuance the categories a little more, at the moment the distinction of just adult/child/group is a bit limiting and I would consider more groups like “Sleep”, “anxiety”, “relaxation”
• add a search function.
Small gripes though for an otherwise wonderful app! Thank you for all your work!
