    Insight Timer - Meditation App's review

    Time your meditation sessions and find guided meditations

    • Lightweight, effective tool
    • See who else is meditating at the same time
    • Search for guided meditations
    • Paid features don't add much value

    "Ding ding ding! Time to meditate!"


    If you're an avid meditator, you know the importance of a good meditation timer. Insight Timer is a solid choice, giving you just the customization options you need to have a great meditation session. Adjust the length of your session and set a delay for the beginning noise so that you have ample time to get comfortable. After you're finished, you'll see who else was meditating at the same time, giving you a sense of solidarity in your mindfulness. Search the zillions of guided meditation sessions if you're feeling adventurous.


    Insight Timer is lightweight and simple. It's exactly the right tool for the job. It's accurate and customizable.


    There are some pretty simple extras, like different varieties of bells, that you have to pay for. Not sure I see enough added value there to justify laying down the dosh.
