Review Headspace.com

Kevin Vadala
8.0Excellent
Good solid introduction, for subscription, there is a lot of content
I didn't like Andy's voice
Headspace for Android is a guided meditation app with a modern feel. Inside the first video of the app, you learn very quickly about what the developers aim to accomplish. There is no shortage of content in Headspace, and while most of it is hidden behind a subscription, the 10 lesson introduction is a great headway into meditation and also a great introduction to the app itself. It’s a great way to find out whether the meditation voiceover (done by a guy called Andy) works for you.
Headspace has a lot of features for those who subscribe. The first exercise is just a very basic intro to meditation that includes being mindful of your surroundings like listening to your body and the sounds around you. It’s a mindfulness exercise, and a lot of the introductory courses feel similar. However, after the 10 introductory episodes there are meditative exercises for a variety of things. There are guided and unguided exercises from 2 minutes to an hour, including health performance or relationship, with special series collections, There are Headspace singles for specific meditations and even meditations for daily activities. If you are feeling particularly volatile, there are SOS sessions perfect for those who rage in video games, or those who can’t quite control their powerful emotions.
Besides the differences in content, the app also has great social integration. There are ways to track stats, team up with friends, and you also gain incentives like little rewards to track your progress. It counts every day you meditate to give you these rewards. If you subscribe, the developers also donate to a good cause, sort of like Toms.
Headspace and its use will come a lot down to personal preference. For me, I didn't really like Andy’s voice that much, and it was hard for me to focus. But I’m the sort that finds voices like these very distracting when I’m trying to meditate. I prefer reading guided explanations and then doing them myself. If you don't find people’s voices very distinctive, you might not have any issues with it. Andy’s voice is particularly calm and warm, so it has that going for it.
