Easy and powerful access to thousands of Dharma talks. These talks were given over a 20-year period at the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, CA, which is led by Gil Fronsdal. Listen to hundreds of leading Dharma teachers from around the world, representing many different traditions and viewpoints, speak on a wide variety of topics.
New talks are continually added.
Search for talks, download and share them, add notes, build your own play lists and see what the community is listening to.
On some devices, Sharing a Talk would generate an invalid URL. This has been fixed.
Various other minor bug fixes and speed improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Love this app!!
The talks are Life changing and the app makes them easily accessible. I download via the app, then listen in my car while driving. Makes it easy to share inspiring talks with friends. Also bookmark your favorites.
VERY well designed app with lots of functionality.
Amazing resource! One small problem
This is an amazing resource and I’m so happy to have stumbled across it. Having so many dharma talks and guided meditations available in one (searchable!) spot rather than having to go to multiple websites and podcast feeds is such a gift. The UI could be a little more intuitive, but it’s easy to figure out and once you know how it works you’re all set.
My one wish would be for an update that allows the app to play audio when the screen is locked - right now if you navigate away from the app or lock your phone it stops playing, which is a huge drain on my already-struggling phone battery. That will probably limit the app’s utility for me in the long run unless it gets fixed. But overall this is a great resource.
Latest update has performance and stability issues
Since the update a few weeks ago (which changed the icon to orange and has a darker theme) - the app’s performance has taken a huge hit for me.
Buttons are slow to respond, page transitions are laggy, the app crashes or just becomes unresponsive and requires a quit and restart. This happens often when I return to the app to continue a talk - almost every time it seems.
Design-wise it was a nice update, but I hope there is something that can be done to return to the previous versions stability and performance.
Also, a small nit while I’m here - please make the app compatible with the native iOS media player! It’s cumbersome to have to go into the app and interact with the UI every time I want to pause or resume a talk. All other audio content apps do this - I use my headphones to pause, as well as the Lock Screen / control panel media controller for everything audio based. I doubt I’m the only one!
That said, thank you for the gifts of your efforts with this app. It is changing the world!
