A new Insight Timer to make contemplating, curating and connecting easier than ever.

Today we are launching a new iOS interface which makes nurturing a daily meditation practice and connecting with teachers and friends much easier. We’re also adding new audio Libraries for Kids and Music. Our Android community will receive the update later this year.

A NEW NAVIGATION BAR

A new primary nav with just four sections to better reflect a meditator’s intention at the time. Are you browsing, meditating, searching or connecting?

New navigation with 4 primary tabs

HOME

Instant access to the Timer, audio Libraries and daily Staff Picks.

FAVORITES

A quiet personal place to store your Bookmarks, Courses, Downloads and favourite Teachers.

SEARCH

A new search engine for finding friends, topics and groups.

PROFILE

A NEW HOME SCREEN

Open the Timer, browse the audio libraries, or connect with friends and teachers meditating around the world.

Insight Timer Home Screen
  • One click access to the Timer and audio Libraries. Swipe right to choose which icons appear first when you open the app.
  • The beloved world map is now clickable and directs you to a new screen containing activity from your friends, groups and people meditating nearby.
  • Underneath the map we feature The Daily Insight and new Courses which are updated daily.
  • The Just Released section is now split into Meditations, Music, Talks and Kids, making it much easier to sort through 100+ new files we publish every 24 hours.
  • For our English speaking community, we’ve added a new Staff Picks section where our editorial team selects 10 popular tracks every day.

NEW AUDIO LIBRARIES FOR MUSIC & KIDS

We’ve redesigned the Music library and added a new library for Kids. Our Sleep library has also been updated. All of our audio Libraries (Guided, Sleep, Music, Talks, Kids) remain free for everyone in our community and this will never change.

CHANGES TO THE DAILY INSIGHT

The Daily Insight was launched as one of our Member Plus (subscriber) features. Revenue we earn from subscriptions is split 50/50 with our teachers and helps us pay the bills while we look for ways to become profitable.

To ensure more people can enjoy The Daily Insight we’re making the short version free for everyone. Please use the Daily Insight from time to time. The more people engage with it, the more it helps our teachers who create wonderful new meditations every day.

The Daily Insight

NEW BEGINNER KITS

One of the most frequent pieces of feedback is that Insight Timer could be friendlier to new meditators. We agree. The new app includes six beautifully curated Beginner Kits which contain a mix of free content and Member Plus Courses.

NEW INSIGHT COURSES

There are now over 200 Insight Courses and we publish new ones every week. We’ve redesigned Course browsing to make it easier to find ones that suit you.

A NEW PROFILE SCREEN

Two in fact. We’ve separated the Profile screen into Public and Private. Your private screen contains one click access to Stats, Activity, Messages, Friends and Groups. Your Public profile contains things you’ve publicly rated five stars and the ability for others to send you messages or friend requests. We’ve added a new Privacy Settings option too so you can personalise what level of privacy you prefer.
