Ratings and Reviews
I too was disappointed when I realized it was only a trial. I would like to humbly offer a suggestion to the developers. Try putting it out there for free and accepting donations via PayPal or Venmo. I truly believe if you trust the Lord he will supply your needs while allowing you to help hurting people find Jesus. I can say this with confidence because we have been in full-time ministry for 28 years reaching kids in public schools for Jesus. We provide teaching materials to our volunteers and backpack Bibles to every child we reach, which is in the thousands after all these years. We were able to do all this plus raise six kids of our own, all on donations from people who believed in what we do. We never ask for money or charge for anything we do, God just always supplied our every need. It wasn’t always easy but we trusted Him and He has been faithful to us. I just want to encourage you with this testimony. I know you offer scholarships from your ministry, but many hurting people find it hard to ask for financial help. It would be wonderful if all of it was free and God supplied the means for you to continue your great work. God bless you and thank you for your wonderful ministry. I know you are helping many find Jesus. It is a ministry that I know the Holy Spirit would lead me to donate to.

Hi and please forgive me for my delayed response! Please know we started with donations, it did not work, but we know God is watching over us!
When you download Abide, it is free! Please know we ask for financial support (through subscriptions) due to the expense of the delivery platform and associated IT costs. Abide employs many Christian people in a full or part-time capacity. Our staff is incredibly skilled and live to see the engagement of God's word increase in the hearts and minds of all throughout the world. Each employee has committed to work Monday - Friday (and often on weekends) to do just that!
So when you subscribe to Abide, you are not only assisting with the overall cost of providing longer meditations, you are actually helping provide for the basic needs of each Abide team member and their families by helping put food on their table, clothes on their back and a roof over their head. You are also blessing them with the opportunity to come to work, each day, and provide you with the top Christian Mediation app on the market today!
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support of Abide!

Encouraging and a blessing!
I learned of this app through YouVersion daily reading plans. I absolutely love the daily lessons and interactive style allowing the listener to spend time communing with God during the reading.
First - this app I found to be quite well rounded with many alternate choices for selecting type and length of meditations. Oddly enough I was very pleased with the narrator’s voices. They were soothing but not “syrup-y” or overly emotional. Just thoughtful. Without going on and on-suffice it to say I was blessed and uplifted by the first meditations-enough so to feel I would like this to become part of my daily quiet time with the Lord.
I’m a little disappointed at the high price but as a former developer I understand the time and cost invested in development of software. And if some of that purchase price is defrayed to additionally support other ministries-well one can’t possibly object. Offering discounts to low-income, seniors, and disabled is a superb thought though I’m not sure how one verifies. I myself fall into this category and $30 means other things go un-met. But spiritual growth is a necessity! Incidentally the response to the reviewer who was so unhappy with the price and short trial period - well I thought the response was quite gracious. Thank you.

Best beginners app!!!
As a “baby” Christian, this app has helped me learn the disciplines between prayer and meditation. I also previously had issues trying to sleep. The free content is superb and I will upgrade because I believe in the mission of the developers to bring good, quality, honest Christian values to the masses. I labeled this app as beginners because as some of the stories are told and bible verses read, I know they have been over-simplified. They are put together beautifully in the sleep programs, but I would enjoy a bit more depth as an adult. My grandson loves these stories. It is a great way to introduce children to the word in a simpler mindset such as this. This app has boundless opportunity for growth and development. The voices used in the sleep programs are perfect for me!! I am now asleep in 10-20 minutes versus up to six hours of mindless meditation without the Word of God in it. Now that I have included my Lord and Savior in my nighttime routine, I fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, have virtually no nightmares, and wake up feeling well. I am excited to see what the developers can do to make this the app for everyone of every age and every level of biblical knowledge can be!!! ***GREAT START ABIDE!!! I HAVE GREAT HOPES FOR YOU***
