Insight Timer - Meditation App Reviews


Impressive Resource  Malatesta3000  5 star

I’ve not used other apps for meditation, so qualify my comments with that. I’m a week in to a renewed effort to establish daily practice. My interests are pretty specific - insight meditation and recovery/freeing one’s self from addictions. At present, I’m focused on simple vipassana, as has been suggested for this stage. Im kind of picky, preferring no music, imagery, plenty of space between words for concentration, or anything I associate with ‘new age woo’ (whatever works for you is good with me though). I’m continuing to try different teachers and meditations on the app, but have already found some that work well for me. There are meditations by famous teachers whose writing I know from before this app. Impressive variety. All this is to say that if you’re looking for guided meditation recordings, there’s likely some on Insight Timer that will fit your needs. It is making it easier to establish a daily practice. I’m using the free version, too.


Love this app  jsbuckner  5 star

Love this app & use it everyday!


I’ve used many meditation apps, I like them all, and I love insight timer  Roxybaby169  5 star

I’ve been using Insight timer for about 2 years now. It’s my digital sangha 😌 It has all the functionality I could want and more. There is a lot of content for guided meditations, sleep, music, talks etc. I can create timers for my own un-guided sits. And I can track my progress. In 2017 I meditated daily using this app to track it. Then I continued to meditate more free flowing without paying so much mind to tracking it. I tried the premium version for a week. It’s nice and has a lot more content and price is really good. In the past I’ve also paid for 10% happier and headspace. Like I said, I find all these tools helpful, but I appreciate insight timer offering so much for free. It is a beautiful reflection of some of the Buddhist teachings to make this accessible to all, regardless of their ability to afford it. Many thanks, much Metta! 🙏🏼


Woow, Just WOW!🖤  Kiekoie  5 star

Best thing in the word! Thankful for this app, and the people on it! I’m currently listening to the Morning Guided Meditations and Oh my! Blessssssssinhs good people!


Best app for meditation  Katirita99  5 star

I started using this app when I had insomnia and had helped me a lot. Taking sleep is so easy now


Becoming commercialized  pmagunia  1 star

With every release, the app is becoming more and more commercialized. It used to be my go to timer but now its always asking me to sign up for courses. I think I would be better off just using a plain timer now.

I love this app!  Mssarah1981  5 star

I use Insight Timer every day for meditation and developing my practice  Surreallucile  5 star

What an amazing app! Hundreds of teachers sharing their meditation teachings, thousands of meditations with playlists that categorise what you are interested in to make them easy to find, and you can bookmark your favourites! Download it now!


Best because it expands and contracts  kkrepp  5 star

I often recommend to my clients apps that have guided meditation. I heard about one of the contributors to Insight Timer on a podcast. It is like a world of meditation play! I am in love. From two minute resets to deep dives. The daily practice reward is a habit maker. We humans are so beautifully funny. Come to this playground! All your friends are here.


Just what I needed 🙏🏼🌷  Gånęshā  5 star

I Love this App!! The options between guided, and just a simple timer with beautiful options of different types of instruments to signal you back to reality. The free version is amazing without throwing annoying ads in your way.

Better soldiering

Started with the timer  Better soldiering  4 star

I started off with this app by just using the timer and have evolved into a full member. This idea/app is bring peace and bliss into this world. I am grateful to be apart of it.


Love it  kAiyaksmom  5 star

New to meditation and so far the guided meditations are definitely great to get you going!


Game Changer  cnickdrive  5 star



Music, Sound therapy, chakra healing & guided meditations  Jkbogle  5 star

I have lived this app for more than a decade and while ownership has changed hands in my time I’m most grateful to still have many of my bookmarked mediations free. When I started everything was free and you could pledge donations and if you could not it was still free. Many of my favorites mediations, music, or energy healing mediations are still free. There are so many New mediation series now offered for a membership fee and look amazing but I’m not ready and able to take on the additional expense at this time. I do think they are worth it as it allows for more customizable learning and training paths. A+ for the app it logs and tracks time mediated, bookmark your favorites or search new ones very easily.


great app!  Capefarvel  5 star

one of the better apps! great community. interface design have been significantly improved. thank you for making this app available to us all.


My partner on the meditation journey!  BonnieR*  5 star

I learned TM about 5 years ago. I did it on and off. After I downloaded the insight timer my practice became much more consistent. I love the community of meditators and looking back on my amazing progress! Thanks for such an amazing app! Bonnie R.


Disappointing updates and endlessly pushes “new” meditations  jd2020  3 star

Once my favorite mediation app, developer’s poor responses and app design choices make deleting this inevitable. Monetize, monetize, monetize. So sad. The timer is great. Highly customizable. Developer has taken steps to burry it, so you have to see the daily churn of new meditation programs Now every time you open the app you’re inundated with “new” mediations of questionable value. It’s already impossible to explore all then mediations and find the good ones. Ratings are almost useless: everting is 4.3 stars or better. (Really?) All the distraction and clutter is the antithesis of an app that is mindful of its users attention. I guess it’s time to look elsewhere.


Not very good.  ari.cooks  2 star

I didn’t like the sounds, I couldn’t hear the meditation voices. I have found better. Didn’t like it very much.


Give me at least a little time  Alaskimohican  1 star

I hv just installed and it keeps me asking to upgrade. I couldn’t even explore and see what I would be paying for! Uninstalled! Don’t be too greedy.


Best meditation app  CaitrionaL  5 star

Insight timer offers ease and access to thousands of mediations, including world class teachers such as DavidJi, Tara Brach, Ram Dass. Using Insight is a great way to develop an established meditation practice. I cannot recommend this app enough 🙏


Orlaith  Nhlnnn  5 star

Thank you for the grounding, so helpful on a day like today to set a clear intention and not get consumed by activity xxHappy Christmas!

Fantastic  Jenna ducky duck  5 star

Excellent. Helps so much. Thank you


Used to be amazing, new features hard to navigate  saddenedmeditator  3 star

I’ve used the app for over a year and it’s been incredibly helpful in calming my anxiety and fighting insomnia. However, the latest update makes it impossible to filter things once you’ve searched a term, which is really frustrating. For instance, if I search ‘morning’ it then shows me some meditations, some music and some talks, but I can’t click on meditations to see more or filter them for length which I used to do. Please fix this since it really limits what I can get out of the app

Shane cork

Shane  Shane cork  5 star

Amazing quality, great sessions, all free whatever length and type you are looking for.


Great app  AlitaDub  5 star

Lots of guided meditations with great teachers and the timer is very functional with bells and background music. I use it to meditate and time my yoga practice


Excellent  Sio///  5 star

You could get this app and set yourself a reminder message at times you want to have a meditation practice. There is a good course for beginners and lots of guided meditations for inspiration free online. Insight timer seems to be a good organization, not intrusive (set the privacy to suit yourself). This app was a huge support to me through recovery from surgery so I sincerely recommend it


Amazing  milena.chakalo  5 star

I used many apps, but Insight Timer is far the best app. No hidden fees, all meditations are free and you can buy courses that are very good. I’m very grateful to find this amazing app. Thank you for continued free meditations and adding new features.


A wonderful tool  bronntanas  5 star

This app is a wonderful gift... it has been my friend on many a sleepless night and on some long days when I was ill. I love the talks when I go out for a walk- always something new and inspiring to learn. I turn to this for support- thank you🙏
