    Hey Waking Up app developers: good job overall, but you forgot to make the app automatically log Mindful Minutes in Apple Health, for both the guided meditations and self-timed meditation. Would be helpful for those of us who track such data!
  • Excellent Meditations

    I had fallen out of the habit of consistent meditation before getting the app and now am back to a consistent meditation. The guided meditations are great, not too long and I already am experiencing the benefit in wellbeing on a day to day basis. The lessons are a really great supplement as well. Highly recommend to all.
  • Love the app! Some minor improvements

    A great app! I’m enjoying it a lot. I noticed that when I finish the meditation assigned for the day it doesn’t always get grayed out. It would be nice to have a manual ticker so I can tick off the meditation when I’m done with it so I know where I left. That’s all for now.

    It appears that many of us are beginning to notice that we increasingly are absent from our lives, even more so than we have been in the past. And this is saying a lot, considering the knee jerk reactions to daily life which nearly all of us consistently trip over, time and time again. This increase in absense mostly takes the form of our phone hypnosis, even amongst those of us who have noticed that putting our phone away while eating, or spending time with family, or friends, is “polite”, and necessary to being present. Despite this, how useful, really, is our time spent staring into the screen? And how often do we do this? I have found this meditation course one of increasing utility, wisdom, and sense making, amazingly packaged within the very device which blankets and obscures these positive aforementioned qualities. One of the few times in my day when picking up my phone increases the quality of my life, truly. And it’s quite likely because as soon as I pick my phone up, and start the next lesson, I just as quickly put it down, close my eyes, and begin browsing, or becoming mindful of the unceasing browsing in the one actual reality that actually matters most. Thanks Sam. Though I love podcasts, and opinions, and moral and political and psychological debate; talk, really, is cheap. Silence is golden.

  • The Gold Standard

    I’ve tried various meditation apps, many of which I really enjoyed (e.g. Headspace, 10% Happier, etc.). But there’s something about Sam’s presentation of the art and practice of meditation that keeps me glued to this app. And the optional “lessons” are truly profound little gold mines that add a depth and richness to my practice by imparting understanding and context. I’ve been a sort of lackey for Sam’s podcast for some time, so it was no surprise to find that the honesty, profundity, and clarity that characterize his thought have been reinstantiated in his carefully crafted meditation app. This is a truly worthwhile product and the gold standard for meditation apps.
  • Great job

    This has been truly the best experience I have had with cultivating a meditation app. The content is well scaffolded to bring new practices in and make the purpose relevant to life circumstances. My deepest gratitude.

    You can do vipassana alone or even find YouTube videos of guided insight meditation. What Sam does here is provide a developing series of short meditations, they take you deeper every time and provide tools to help you realize impermanence in a waking life. Not only that, but the app provides lessons to give you a clearer understanding of the purpose of these meditations. I recommend this to you if restlessness and anxiety drive your overall emotional state, or not. Insight is a wisdom all will find value in.
