Plays well with background music via Bluetooth speaker (though warns it will not play bell through headphones). Easy enough to figure out how to use. Great bell sounds! I wish I could turn off (hide) the numbers on the timer while using it and just have the progress gauge. You can change whether the count is up or down, but can not turn the numbers off.
This is my favorite timer, been using it for a long time. If you could try to address the battery draining issue, I would appreciate it. It's not that much of a battery drain, but it would be nice if it could allow the phone to fully suspend and then wake, like the clock or alarm app. Thanks!
was having issue after update on my LG but after going to developer's website for one final attempt (thank goodness I did), found instructions on how to get it to work again (& learned something new about world of android platforms!) LG platform is tricky, supposedly, but after a simple but deeply embedded change in setting, it works now. thank you! (aesthetically, i liked the old look though, but just glad this great app is up & working again.)
Good for zazen. If you don't know what that is, it's the sitting meditation done in soto and rinzai zen Buddhism. Bells are rung to let you know when meditation has started and ended. This wee guy does the bell ringing for you and won't forget or fall asleep. Sessions of different length can be programmed in, so if you do 30 minutes of zazen and 10 of kinhin, you can easily programme this and any other composition of session in and have custom bell sounds marking each. It also handily puts your phone into do not disturb and turns alarm volume off BUT won't switch them on again on some phone models when the session ends. Hey I have a fairphone 2 so such issues are par for the course... You could use this app to countdown anything and represent it visually and ring bell alerts for you. The screen can be kept on or time out, but the alarms and alerts it makes will sound regardless. A great app which is very customisable.
Best meditation app I tried (and I tried some). The only one that can mute sounds during meditation, plays bell sounds while the phone is on mute and timer works while the screen is turned off (features that do not work on other apps). Also simple to use with no unnecessary features. First app I was ever compelled to rate :)
This app used to be great and is now unusable. phone is left in silent mode even after timer is done. 1/3 the time, the bell doesn't go off when time is out (real problem with that). Hope he fixes this as it used to be great
Small bugfix release
- Additional tries to fix the problem muting not resetting after meditation on some devices. Hope this works now, I'm running out of ideas here...
- Increased the maximum of possible entries in a Session
