Nice and simple, good timer with a selection of nice bell sounds. The new UI is better, though still a bit quirky and not totally intuitive. I like the way it silences other phone sounds while timing, but the new version has a bug where the phone is left in silent mode afterwards. This has caused me to miss calls and messages.
Loved the old version, which worked perfectly for me, gave it 5 stars. Initially, had problems with the sound in the new version and it crashed once, resulting in decreasing rating to 3 stars, but some user-tinkering with settings and author's latest version appear to have remedied the issues. Now, the app works well for me, meets my needs with ease, meriting 5 stars again.
The old version was brilliant and simple. The new version sometimes leaves the phone in silent mode, even alarms (!) even after I turn off 'do not disturb' (apparently turned on by the app, something the old version didn't do while still not allowing calls). Also, the first ringtone comes in slow and shaky, and multiple ringtones run together even though I gave them a 2 sec gap. Thank you for providing the app in the first place! But would be great to get the old version back.
Problems with latest update On an LG Nexus 5 I'm finding it is failing to restore alarm settings after a session. 'Do not disturb' stays on and when that is manually turned off ring tone is still off - it's on vibrate.
The old version the bell simply rang on the volume set. With this version the bell starts off light and then gets louder, no longer like a natural bowl. And I have to coordinate the phone volume with the app volume just to hear the unnatural soft to loud sound.
Everything for meditation 12/5/16. Got new phone and had to reinstall. Changes for the worse. Unusable. I'll have to find something else. 12/23/16. Gave it another shot. Volume is so faint it can hardly be heard.
