Ratings and Reviews
A beautiful experience
This is such a beautifully made app! I love Max Richter’s Sleep album and has made one of the tracks my alarm every morning haha. I was excited to try this app and was blown away by how beautiful it is. I was obsessed with the graphics of the surface of the moon and couldn’t stop myself from staring at it lol. It was surprisingly calming. I tried it for a quick 5 min meditation and it was so much better than meditating without it. It kind of provided a sense of security and mood so that I could focus on my breathing, scanning my body etc. The whole quarantine situation has been stressful and distracting for me, and an app like this is so helpful as it calms me down and gives me some much needed head space. Can’t wait to try the sleep and focus features!
Best sleep/mediation app
If you love Max Richter’s music you will love this app. Beyond his music though the aesthetics and functionality are by far much nicer than any other app I have tried. The planets that rotate are so calming (and apparently tied to actual planet movement where you are?) and the app falls asleep with you.. gradually decreasing in volume and turning itself off. In the morning it slowly increases in volume. If adapts to what you enjoy, so if you increase the volume on a song, it will play it more often, if you skip a song, it will take it out. I love this.... so much.. it’s so calming to start my day and end my day with. The “Focus” setting is great for working. Overall an intuitive, sleek, functional and beautifully rendered app. Thank you!!!
Important that you read this
I have meditated over 1000 days in a row and this app is the first that gives me goosebumps after a session. I just ed the Focus setting to read a chapter from the Meditative Mind by Dan Goleman and will be using this app every time I need to read while outside in the busy streets of NYC.
If you have not already listened to the 8-hr Sleep album then how do you Sleep? Stop sleeping and go to your digital music service platform and listen tonight!
