I've been using this app for years with just the basic timer and have been very happy. Recently, however, in an apparent bid to push me into a upgrading to a paid subscription, I'm confronted with bright yellow Upgrade to Plus buttons everywhere and my same-old, reliable presets need to be re-selected every time I sit down. It would be just great if ONE app made a quality product to fit a goal and left it at that, instead of endlessly monetizing it in the name of creating a "community".

Although apparently aimed at selling guided meditation lessons, this is still a pretty good meditation timer. Taken strictly as a timer: Unlike some others, it's very reliable. The free version is enough. It's also versatile. Choice of bells. Allows bells at specified intervals. Allows setting up multiple meditation protocols. On the other hand it's complicated to set up and complicated to use, and it keeps asking how I feel. Give me a break already.

I'm upset with the recent change. For years, I enjoyed having the ability to set my timer with intervals and breathe. Best part of my day. They nixed the basic timer. They put the timer behind a paywall and charge $59.99 a year. I don't want the other bells and whistles the paid version has, I just want to breathe with the basic timer.
