A simple and intuitive meditation timer, focused on Zen.

Allows you to set a time for

- Preparation

- A zazen sitting

- Kinhin

- A second preparation

- A second zazen sitting

At the beginning and end of each time you will be notified with a gong sound and optionally a vibration pattern. The gong sounds 3 times at the beginning of a zazen sitting, and 2 times at the beginning of kinhin. At the end of each period it sounds one time.

The interface is kept as simple as possible. Tap settings, set the times applicable and press start. That's all there is to it.

Nice start...

Easy to use, nice interface and nice chime. But I wish I could create multiple "sessions" - a shorter meditation for evening, a longer one for morning. You get to build just one, unless you erase it & start over.

Wonderful timer!

This is a wonderful meditation timer! Very simple (Zen) implementation. What new users may not realize is you can setup several timers that occur consecutively. For example, a "start meditation" timer that rings after 15 seconds. Followed by a "meditation" timer that lasts 20 minutes. Finally, an "end meditation" timer that last 3 minutes. For each timer I only use a ring tone at the end, since the end of one timer is the beginning of the next (make sense?). Thanks to Erwin for creating this.

I Love It, And...

This is a nice, simple timer that does what it says. I really like the graphic. Suggestions: Use a real, recorded bowl gong sound rather than the jarring electronic one. How about an option to silently turn on the light instead of an alarm?
