I love this app but what I don't like is the fact that I can't stop it from playing through the phones speaker. I have my headphones in all the time so I was hoping to have an option to just hear it through the headphones. I tried forcing it with other apps like SoundAbout but even that wont work! I have to set it on vibrate because I don't want to disturb the people around me. I'll give it 3 stars until this issue is fixed. Otherwise it's a very useful app.
I love this app. One of those that you would miss if it went away. I use it twice a day, and love how you can customize your sessions. The only feature I miss is not being able to save different settings into presets. (For example, my morning session has a different pattern of timing and bells than my evening session.)
Used to work fine but now it does not mute with the phone. When the priority only mode is enabled the bell keeps ringing. Only complete silence is respected but does not a mode that I use because ignore alarms. The bell rings in meetings and silence environments which is just not okay since the phone is set to do not sound...
Awesome! Get reminded to be mindful at set intervals. Get this app! There is no substitute for this! It's perfect. - Can be silent during calls and pause your music too! - Also has a cool meditation mode. - The reminder sound is a long fading bell sound that encourages mindfulness.
This app has been so helpful in managing my PTSD! I have it chime every hour or so, and it really helps me get through the day. It's even snapped me out of a flashback or two. I highly recommend it!
Overall, a well-designed app. There is just one problem: the sound is played as an alarm instead of media. This makes it impossible to control the source of the sound, e.g. Bluetooth. It would have been so much better to use media, or at least make it an option. EDIT in response to the dev — I can't find the beta version, but that's OK; I'll wait for the new version to land. Thank you
