* TESTIMONIALS *

* Must have for meditation. Great application to let you know when the meditation ends. The option of having sound off with vibration only is a great bonus. (momochow)

* I love this app, and use it daily for my own meditation sessions, and once a week for our meditation group. (Frank Ozaki)

* Thanks for a great app guys! Intuitive contols with no intrusive bells or whistles, makes for an easy start to each meditation session. (Kaz par avion)

* I've been using it every day to great effect. I do TM, which stipulates 20 minutes of meditation, so this has been really usefull and stops me interupting the meditation to keep squinting at the clock. (Michael Sullivan-Lozano)

* Love this app! It's the gong that sold me on it. (fraterpater)

* When I meditate in our community sanctuary, I often loose track of time and miss other appointments, but I can't set an audible alarm which would disturb other people. So, this app's silent alarm is really useful. (Michael Fuchs)

* Exactly what I was planning to write. Thanks! (Eric Moritz)

* FEATURES *

* Five soothing color schemes, now with matching fonts

* Shake to do a quick restart of the countdown (enable in Settings > Meditation Timer)

* Share your session on Twitter when you're done, spreading the calm

* Adjust the Gong sound level, or turn it off completely, leaving only a gentle vibration (only available on iPhone) to let you know when your session is at an end

* Preparation timer to get in the mood before your session begins

* COMING UP *

* Share on Facebook too

* Syncs meditation settings to all your other devices via iCloud (just enable it in Settings)!

* The "bong" sound fades out nicer (thanks to Gavin and Lynton for their persistence)

Mostly looks, little substance

:
This app is stylish and feels solid, well-written, but it doesn't really offer any significant functionality over the built-in timer in the Clock app. It feels like the developers focused on slick aesthetics over usability.

For a meditation timer, I want a wide selection of sounds, various bells and bowls, and very customizable ring times. "Ring three times in 30 seconds, then once after ten minutes, then once 30 minutes later, then three more times 40 minutes later." I want all the options exposed easily in a nice, usable UI.

Meditation timer offers basically none of that. You can set a preparation time, after which it rings once, and then rings once more after your set meditation time. There is only one sound. Also, while this is subjective, I found the sound harsh, and it ended far too soon; I like listening to the tail of the singing bowl noise. In this app, it rings for a few seconds and then cuts out.

You can do essentially all of this with the built-in clock timer, except the preparation period, but it's not that hard to just get set up and then lean out and hit Start.

Furthermore, the UI for this app goes for looks over functionality. When you launch it, you get the very attractive timer screen. But there's no functionality on it. You need to double-tap to get to settings. In fact, you always need to double-tap every time you launch the app because the timer doesn't auto-restart, so when you launch it's at 00:00. In Settings there's a Restart button which you always have to hit.

There's no reason to have the pleasant purple or green timer screen at all, though, unless you meditate while staring at your phone. I meditate with my eyes closed, or barely open, or else looking at the ground while I walk. Having the timer screen at all is just a nuisance, since it means you have to double-tap to go to Settings all the time to do anything.

I'm disappointed in this application: I don't mean to be mean, but I can't understand what the developers were thinking. It offers so little functionality beyond the built in Clock timer, and exposes it in an obfuscated way... it just feels like they wanted to make something that looked nice, but didn't really think about how meditators might want to use it.

4/5 stars

Almost there

:
I agree that this app seems a perfect match for iPhone owning meditators. I also agree that this app is a bit limited if you have auto-lock set on your phone - the phone locks and the alarm will not wake the phone. I'm not sure if the SDK gives the developer access to wake the device, but if it does it would be nice - saves energy by shutting off the screen yet still is functional. Having the screen off is also nice as it prevents "peeking" at the time for those whose concentration might be wandering. All said this could soon be a 5 star app and would be used twice daily by many users.

5/5 stars

almost perfect

:
i love this app, and i use it daily for my own meditation sessions, and once a week for our meditation group. the large numbers are great, as is the "preparation" countdown, which i find so very helpful. my only suggestion for it would be to offer a variety of gong sounds to choose from (i find the default one a bit "brassy" for my tastes), or maybe even let us choose our own sound from our ringtone list. just a thought. thank you for this app!
