  • Soothing

    It's easy to follow and I love the ability to make adjustments
  • Definitely Recomend

    I was very young when I discovered this app, around 9 or so, and I have been using it every night for the past 4 years to help me sleep. Now an anxious 13 year-old, this app has helped me relax at night and fall into an oasis of relaxation, taking my mind off school and everything that has happened that day. I don't have the voice on, for I usually turn the voice volume all the way down to just listen to the gentle background music. I prefer "light rain" as my sound, because I love rainy days. Sorry this review is so long, but I definitely recommend this app to people who have stress, anxiety, or even insomnia. So worth the payment. Thank you Meditation Oasis.
  • Best meditation app I’ve found

    By Papiluve
    I have tried a number of different meditation apps, but this is by far my favorite. It is very handy that you can manually control the volume of the voice and the volume of the music separately. I have come to use the app in two different ways: voice-only is for my meditation, and music-only (“Acceptance”) is to help me drift off to sleep, whether for a nap or for the night. That music can knock me out in under five minutes in virtually any circumstances! This app is a great value; I highly recommend it.
  • Simple and Convenient

    By Portals21 Chris S
    I have kept this app on my home screen for years, even after trying the more mass market apps. The main advantage is the interface; after opening the app you select from 3 times and get started.
  • Excellent and simple!

    I use this app nearly every day. It truly is indispensable for my meditation practice. I'm thankful they created it!
  • Good app

    You can drift away
  • Great app!

    I really like the speaker's voice. I like the music and I like fact that you can pick the length of the meditation.
  • Still..

    By JimJ147
    This Ap still helps me to sit in Gratitude before encountering the world.
  • Pleasantly surprised

    By ...............?cool
    I downloaded this app bundle, not really knowing what to expect. I’ve been searching for a way to meditate for awhile now, and haven’t been able to find anything down my alley. After my first 5 minute session, I feel much calmer and happier. I’m a mom of two boys, I’m in school and I have a lot of craziness in my daily life. This is a great way to relax, unwind and refresh. I’m thrilled to have found something that works for my schedule, and that I look forward to utilizing everyday.

    I used the app for over a year, then stopped for a year. Happy to be back using this great tool. The choices for background music and/or nature sounds calms any mood. Thank u!
