Meditation apps offer a mobile approach to meditation by offering a variety of features. These features may include curated playlists, bedtime stories, live workshops, nature sounds, mindfulness audio streams, body scans, guided meditation lessons and programs, and a wide range of meditations for specific topics like relationships, loneliness, body image and more. Some apps offer timers, trackers and meditation statistics for your viewing as well.
Meditation apps are available both for free, as well as through paid subscriptions for some platforms. Free versions of certain meditation platforms may come with limited access, while a paid account may offer users access to the entirety of an app’s features.
