    7. Zen Timer

    Perfect for mindful activities such as meditation, yoga and Reiki, this simple yet powerful timer plays the beautiful sounds of the Tibetan singing bowl.

    • You'll love our bells! Recorded with high quality digital audio equipment at a famous meditation center, these new bell samples are amazing. Crystal clear with extra long fade outs. They sound great with the built-in speaker, but to get the full effect, try using headphones or external speakers.
    • Choose from seven different bells of varying size and metal compositions - from bright and clean to deep and complex with lovely overtones.
    • Each bell can be set to ring once, twice or three times. The delay between strikes is configurable from 2/10 of a second to 15 seconds.
    • Optionally add a beginning bell which will play when the timer is started. Choose the type of bell, the delay before the bell rings, the number of strikes and the relative volume of this bell.
    • Add an unlimited number of interval bells which are set to play at specified times - either at a repeating time interval or at a fixed offset from the beginning or end. Again with each bell, you can set the type of bell, the number of strikes and the relative volume.
    • Presets allow you to save an unlimited number of configurations and assign names to them. If you have multiple meditation routines (such as Morning and Evening), this makes it easy to switch between them without any configuration changes.
    • Set the background image from your own photo album. While the timer is running, your image is shown full screen. Optionally, the time display and controls can be hidden so that they are shown only when the image is tapped.
    • Session Logging: Whenever a timer completes, the start time and duration are stored on the phone so you can review your Zen Timer usage. Your log data can also be exported via an email attachment and loaded into a spreadsheet for more sophisticated analysis.
    • Statistics: Log data is condensed into useful statistics to help you monitor and evaluate your timed activities.
    • Journal: You may enter notes about each session when the timer ends. Again, this can help you track your progress in the activity that you are timing. Your journal entries can be exported via an email attachment.
    • Pause and Resume your timer session.
    • iTunes will continue to play while the timer is running. Great for soothing background tracks or binaural alpha waves.
    • Have a basic meditation routine? You can set up the Zen Timer in seconds: Just pick your bell, the amount of time you want to meditate and hit Start.
    • Have a complex meditation routine? Zen Timer can handle it! No other meditation timer is as powerful and flexible as the Zen Timer.
