Calm.com has the cleanest UI of any meditation app available. There are a handful of free meditation sessions available but you'll have to shell out some dough to get access to their full catalog. Regardless, it's a good app for anyone who is trying to adopt a life changing habit.
Calm produces mindfulness meditation products, which are accessible to users through various channels: the company’s website, Calm.com; a bestselling book; and its primary product, a mindfulness meditation app, available on iPhone and Android devices.
The app features both meditation tools and sleep aids. The meditation area of Calm offers a quick breathing exercise, a aily meditation that teaches mindfulness, several multi-day programs targeting specific issues or goals, and unguided and guided meditation sessions.
The “Sleep” area of the app gives users access to an audio feature called Sleep Stories – bedtime stories for adults. On December 1, 2016, Calm launched an initial range of 23 different sleep-inducing stories, mixing words, music and sound-effects, with the aim of helping adult listeners to sleep.
Most of the Sleep Stories range in length from 20 to 30 minutes and in kind from non-fiction nature essays describing natural wonders to an extract from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream. They include both original stories, devised by mindfulness specialists, and slow-tempo retellings for adults of children's stories such as The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen.
