4 Meditation App Success Stories [2022]
Start A Meditation App

Meditation apps help users learn and master various meditation skills by offering technology-based tools like mood trackers, guided meditations, meditation timers, and a platform for connecting with other meditators.

To build your meditation app, generate and consolidate ideas before starting the app development journey or hiring an app developer. To ensure unique features, research what your competition offers its users and write out their features.

Finally, build the application and put together the application marketing plan.

Your meditation application should provide users with a wide range of guided meditations for novices and seasoned meditators.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a meditation app:

1. Christian Hypnobirthing ($120K/year)

Tara Menzies (from ) started Christian Hypnobirthing almost 5 years ago.

Case Study

Hi! My name is Tara Menzies, and I’m the creator of the five-star rated Christian Hypnobirthing App, which is a scripture-based relaxation app designed to help expecting mamas feel more relaxed and connected to God throughout pregnancy and birth. Being in this relaxed, faith-filled state helps the body produce optimum levels of oxytocin and endorphins, naturally helping to make labor more efficient and more comfortable.

The app currently has around 5000 downloads a month, and average revenue of US$10K a month. When I decided to create this app I had no app-building or software background, no money to invest, and no potential investors. All I had was an idea and the belief that it was possible.

3. Headspace ($100M/year)

Andy Puddicombe is not your typical entrepreneur – in his early twenties, he gave away everything he owned to train as a Buddhist monk. But after ten years, he decided he wanted to bring the benefits of his meditation techniques to more people. While running a meditation clinic in London, Andy met Rich Pierson, who had burned out on his job at a high-powered London ad agency. Together, they founded Headspace in 2010. Nine years later, Headspace's guided meditation app has users in 190 countries and an annual revenue of over $100 million. PLUS in our postscript "How You Built That," how a quick fix to a broken pair of sunglasses inspired Jensen Brehm and Nikolai Paloni to create an armless set of shades: Ombraz Sunglasses.
