Generally good Nice bell sounds and simple to set up. I like that I can set the bell volume and have different bells within a session. But mute option puts my phone into vibrate mode rather than silencing it altogether. And a meditation log would a nice extra. Also a 1 hour session with a sleeping screen uses over 10% of the battery which seems excessive
Good features, battery hog This app has a good deal of useful features for helping with your zazen. But it seems to consume more battery than expected when used. Also I'd like to be able to decide if I want a service to run on my phone, so could the service be possible to switch off via an option in the settings?
Great design, doesn't work I STAND CORRECTED! JUST CLICK ON WHAT LOOKS LIKE THE ONLY (PRE-RECORDED) SESSION, AND YOU'LL SEE A DROP-DOWN LIST OF ALL THE POSSIBLE SESSIONS. Lets you create customized session (variety of bells, at variety of times, at variety of volumes--fantastic). HOWEVER, it fails to save or run any of these sessions. DEVELOPER: Please fix! BTW, I'm using an LG phone. ANYBODY HAVE SUGGESTIONS ABOUT A COMPETING APP WITH SAME DESIGN THAT ACTUALLY WORKS?
Very nice app! Does exactly what it says it will, and is easy to use. I love the bells! On my phone, it needs to be set to keep the screen on. The first downside is that the custom bell option doesn't work. It defaults to one of the gongs. The second it's that I set it to mute calls and notifications, but I still get them.
'Nice app. I had downloaded Insight Timer but then discovered that the free version didn't include 8 different tones as advertised, but that it was an upgrade. Anyway, i sat down with this app last night and thought, Well, it'll take me awhile to set it up the way I want--start time, delays, end time, which bell to choose, volume, and so on. But ... No. I was done in about 90 seconds--with setting up the session I wanted and deleting 2 other sessions that I created while learning. It's easy. It's intuitive.
Perfect! Love the ability to time different periods during one session. The next time period starts right away without you having to press anything. Love the sound choices, amazing quality of and very authentic. By the end of a 45 minute session, only 1% of my battery had drained.
- Fixed a bug that let Android kill the meditation background process when memory gets low. This should not happen anymore now.
