The Calm App is based in San Francisco and explores a variety of way to improve mental health by tackling sleep patterns and meditation practices. It was founded by Alex Tew and Michael Acton Smith -- the duo originally started the project with the intention to create a guided meditation app.
In the process, it grew to feature additional elements that include breathing coaches, sleep stories, a series of soothing songs known as the 'Calm Music' component, 'Calm Master class' audio assistance, and more. The growing number of features help users better understand their mind and sleeping patterns to improve areas that need it most. The app is free and also has subscriptions offerings as well.
