Not running without pc, waste of money. Like to use it but not connected to my pc. So cannot open it "stand alone" its not mentioned when buying it. So 15 euros gone!! Bad experience. Now need another app to get my mind straght from this one.
Why force customers to buy twice?. Seriously? Being forced to buy the same software twice within the same store? Bought this software years ago for my Rift S, and now see that they want me to buy it again to access it on my Quest 2? Really guys? Really?
Does Not Seem to Work on Rift. I am very disappointed that I could not get this app to work on the Rift, despite and exceeding spec needed for the computer, and trying to run it on 360 degrees tracking. It just does not even load up. I had first baught the app on steam, with no success. Then baught it here on meta withe same results. All other VR apps that I had baught for Rift works perfectly well. My guess is that the developers have now focused all their efforts for the quest. It is a pity as both Steam and Meta state clearly it runs on Rift as well.
Great Experience~if you read description. This is a great experience that delievers exactly what it says. Guided meditation, in the language it is listed in the description, English. They should offer more, I agree, but, giving it a lesser review because you chose not to read is silly. It frustrates me, when people give bad ratings for things, that aren't desreved, so, my apologies if this comes off a little sour, I'll meditate on it haha. Either way, for now, I would recommend using tools that oculus offers, our desktop, open something like youtube, and open your favorite guided meditation in your preferred language & use that, it works great, I have used some music I like, in place of having the meditation or music from the app running. You can adjust all of it in settings. I sometimes just sit in places I like with the little glowey light effect with the music on, it's very relaxing to me. You can turn the volume down on the app & turn on a meditation you want, if there is something you find outside of the app you want to experience while gliding through one of the places. I hope they will eventually add more areas or effects. There is one called Kamea, that was abandoned that had a chakra effect I liked, I wished this one had. HOPE VR has one as well that I enjoy, for now, I use a mix of all three, depending on what I am in the mood for. I have purchased this one as gifts for friends & family that I know are going through hard times, because I know this will help. I even recommended my therapist check it out, so, she might be able to use it as a tool for others or possibly create a theraputic session she could add to it. It's one of the top of my list for VR meditation & the 1st ones recommend every time. As for people upset it isn't cross platform, the reason being, devs have to re-code things to be on the Quest, this wasn't originally coded for the Q, it was a Rift item. A 2nd set of code is required for Q. I think thats why some apps we have to pay for again, it's different code to get it to work
Have to buy twice. I had purchased this from the rift store last year when using my Quest 2 with the link cable. It's very lame now that it was ported to the Quest 2 that I would have to repurchase it for Quest, rather than being able to download it like other games allow that are in both stores. This app is decent but certainly not worth having to buy it twice.
Great use case for VR. I like the music and general direction they take with this app. It is easy to use and a highly customizable experience. At the time of this review, it is still in early access and it shows in some areas, some music doesn't loop cleanly without a short gap of silence, some foliage is placed in a sloppy way, clipping through the ground or objects, some trees have distracting and visible pop-in, even at high graphics settings and the teleport controls allow you to teleport out of the map. But overall, the meditation quality seems to be there, and the design of the environments is pretty. With a bit of polish, this will become a highly recommendable app.
Why not cross play. I brought this ages ago, and while I have enjoyed it, it has always needed to be cross play. Today it came out on quest and.. ... I have to buy it again. That totally sucks ! Poor move. You should reward early adopters.
Why not smooth turn and locomotion?. firstly two stars might be harsh, plenty of places to visit and setting like narration off and just nature sounds. the graphics are decent, played at mid setting, so imagine the high would improve that a little as also, so no complaints on that department, it fact I would otherwise highly recommend but for the turns and locomoton ruin it for me.
Sure it's called meditation and by default I think you're sat in one place to meditate. But looking for a spot to relax in is a pain . do a turn, you do have to have either black, white and a colour[ I think pinkish] while you turn and the point locomotion gives you a sparkly white frame, so you don't see your movement. When you are looking around listening to the nature sounds, it is quite off putting and brings you out of the place, ones I've done are beautiful with a vast area to look at. If anybody reads this and I've missed something in the meagre settings please let me know as this totally spoils it for me- hence two stars.
Wont start. Bought this app in hopes it could help me but it has actually only given me more stress it will not start every time I try it opens up and shuts down again, am sure the app is good and will help me but it is just sad that it will not work
Supportive. I'm grateful for this app, it's so helpful.
Beautiful. I just got this a couple of hours ago, and wow just WOW! If I never used it again it would still be worth the money spent. I like doing the music visualization and just exploring the incredible landscapes. I could wonder around for many hours. I am curious if there is a way to save favorite spots and music. So you don't have to find that exact spot again if you would like to return? I do agree with many other reviews, that it would be wonderful if we could somehow add our own music/mediation via sound file and or youtube etc. I really love this app and think it has great potential, I hope you keep up with it and make improvements. I am blown away already and look forward to ongoing progress. Thank you.
Wonderful idea limited by the technology. The short meditations may seem disappointing until you realize how quickly this makes some people sick. I think I have my vr legs and can certainly play a while in other relatively uncomfortable games but even a little discomfort can be a bigger problem in this app. As far as the meditations, they can be good though they're fairly simple and more based around relaxation. This is better as a suplement to an app or a regular practice. Again, these limitations are probably related to the discomfort of the technology. The environments are nice if you don't have a nice place to sit outside but if you want to sit longer than ten or fifteen minutes, you might find it more comfortable without the headset on.
Just the thing in this stressful time! Being stressed out of my gourd by the Recent Crisis (i.e. coronavirus) it occurred to me that maybe a bit of guided relaxation might be helpful, so I purchased this app. Based on spending a couple of hours trying out various options and running through several guided meditations, I recommend it wholeheartedly!
There are so many options to choose from: - a long list of peaceful environments - a large variety of gentle and appropriate music - a huge collection of guided meditations (both in terms of meditation style - yoga, zen, Hawai'ian, you name it - and in terms of content - relaxation, body awareness, mindfulness, etc etc).
Given the semi-infinite number of possible combinations to try, there should surely be something here that works for almost everyone. Over the space of an hour or so, I went from being a frazzled anxious stress bunny to practically falling asleep in my armchair. I wouldn't have thought that would be possible, but here we are.
