An app for Android and iOS that otherwise costs $69.99 per year (£62.99 in the UK) is now available for free. To be more precise, the Balance: Meditation & Sleep app is free all the time, but without the paid annual subscription it won’t do anything. However, the developers are offering new users their first year for free for a limited time.
