Description

For thousands of years, people have found solace through simple meditation practice. Now with your iPhone or iPod touch, you will have all you need to start your liberation from the daily grind.

The Singing Bowl Meditation Timer allows you to set and store 3 time periods for meditation. Each saved preset slot allows you to store 3 alert/interval chimes. Chime sounds can be changed for the start chime, alert chime and ending chime.

Don't feel like dealing with presets? No problem! Just the new "quick menu" to set an ad-hoc timer period and interval alerts without leaving the menu screen.

Don't want any distractions? Set the screen to dim after a period of inactivity. Hide the timer countdown with a tap. Set the chime sound to vibrate (iPhone only). It's up to you!

KEY FEATURES:

* 3 user-configurable time periods

* 3 custom interval alerts

* 6 chime sounds + vibrate (iPhone only)

* customizable preparation timer

* ring the singing bowl at any time during your meditation

* pleasant realistic chime sounds that gently and gradually fades into silence

* clean, simple user interface

* large timer display that can be hidden from view

Any problems, suggestions for improvements, feedback, etc. you have please let me know! All the features of version 2.0 have come from user requests. The purpose of this app was to make meditation easier for sustained practice. Any suggestions you submit will be taken seriously, and more than likely make it into the next release.

Beautiful singing bowl - great functionality!

:
I previously reviewed version 1.0 and just had to come back to review the new version 2.0. I use the app. with an iPhone 3G. First off, I love the sound of the singing bowl, which includes the long fadeout of a real bowl. I gave the previous version 3 stars because I had a problem with the fact that the app. kept the screen on while the timer is counting down, which I didn't want, especially over long meditation periods. The new version still keeps the screen on, but the dimmer feature turns the screen way down so that screen life and battery power are better optimized. What I now really, really like about the new version is the user customizable timer, with intervals, and 6 different chime settings, as well as a vibrate option. Now I can just set the parameters of my meditation session, push start, set the phone down and not have to interact with the phone at all until my session is done - kind of like when I'm in the meditation hall and someone else is ringing the bell at the start, breaks and end of the session. Nice app., and for 99 cents, it's a bargain considering all the functionality you get. It's good enough to have now made it onto my home screen for daily meditation. (A screen turn-off-during-countdown feature would get this app. to 5 stars in my opinion. :-)

5/5 stars

Even better now with the update!

:
Thank you for the recent update! This app just gets better & better for meditation. Does exactly what I was hoping. It's PERFECT for my needs & anyone that would like a timer for meditation. Simple to set up, gentle sound to come out of meditation. I really like the sustain of the singing bowl. I've taught meditation classes for many years & people have always loved the chime I use to gently bring them out of their meditation time. Now I can have a nice singing bowl chime or vibration that gently brings me out of my personal quiet time with God when I teach the class. I no longer need to look at my watch for the students time allowing me to go deep in my personal meditation without concerns of time. Thank you developers for such a lovely, simple & straight-forward app! Love it! Bless you!
