Meditation Helper Plus

Offers in-app purchases

This is a brand new version of Meditation Helper - see my other app listings for the older versions. It is an almost complete re-write, an attempt to make the application simpler to use, yet more powerful.

Any feature in Meditation Helper Pro is now available for free in MH+. The only features I will charge for are those that don't already exist in Meditation Helper Pro.

Widget
------------------------------------
The widget is my implementation of Jerry Seinfeld's productivity secret (http://lifehacker.com/281626/jerry-seinfelds-productivity-secret):

------------------------------------
"He said the way to be a better comic was to create better jokes and the way to create better jokes was to write every day. But his advice was better than that. He had a gem of a leverage technique he used on himself and you can use it to motivate yourself—even when you don't feel like it.

He revealed a unique calendar system he uses to pressure himself to write. Here's how it works.

He told me to get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step was to get a big red magic marker.

He said for each day that I do my task of writing, I get to put a big red X over that day. "After a few days you'll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You'll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain."

"Don't break the chain," he said again for emphasis."
------------------------------------

The chain in this case is the number of consecutive days that you have hit your meditation target. The widget displays both the current chain, and the longest ever chain. Having this on my home screen motivates me to meditate every day. Your mileage may vary.

What's New

Fixed issue with clone sittings. Swiping to close activity now no longer stops the session (consistent with the way other timers work). Possible fix for missing presets, with additional logging in case it doesn't work.
