Product Description

Imagine the sound of beautiful Tibetan singing bowls, gently and peacefully guiding you through your meditation session. Your attention focused inward with no need to worry about the clock…

Insight Timer gives you this and much more. It's simple enough to get started with just a few taps, yet powerful enough to handle the most sophisticated meditation routines with advanced features such as interval bells, presets and a meditation journal.

With the Insight Connect feature, you can become part of a global meditation community - seeing at a glance people around the world who are meditating with you. Link your Facebook or Twitter account and you and your friends can follow and support one another's practice. You can also make new friends who share your love of meditation.

- 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound! March 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a great app for meditation or those just looking for a nice sound for a timer. i use it for meditation, for cooking, and for other activities requiring some kind of time limit. Several different chime offerings, plus a choice of one, two, or three bells, a pre-meditation bell to begin, interval timer bells, and a journal feature as well. Lots of really good features for an incredibly low price. Compared to the $100 timer I received for Christmas a few years ago, this does more and sounds better! I love it and use it daily!

Not a suspicious permission! To those that are calling the permission "Access the list of accounts in the Accounts Service" suspicious, you really should learn what permissions are before posting this cr&p. This permission is needed to get the list of accounts associated with the device so you can connect on Facebook, Google+, or whatever. It is only the list, not access to those services. You still need to tell the service, i.e Google, that you are allowing the program to have access. List, not access.

2.0 out of 5 stars Screen dimmer does not work March 8, 2013
Verified Purchase
I haven't read the other reviews so I don't know if this is happening on all phones, but on my Galaxy Nexus the "screen dimmer" option does not work, which means I cannot use this app. The app also does not work if the screen is manually shut off, which is why I assume they added what was supposed to be a dimmer.

I cannot use the app with the screen on for multiple reasons - I have an Super AMOLED screen, which this app, if the screen is left on, can cause screen burn-in permanently damaging my display, it also drains battery life quickly with the screen on, and I meditate at night and the glare even with my eyes closed is irritating.

My system screen timeout is set to 30 seconds and works fine when this app is not running but this app keeps the screen on at all times and overrides the set timeout. I have the app option checked to dim the screen, which is supposed to shut off the backlight, but as I said, it does not shut it off or dim it even slightly.

I've tried resetting the settings several times, rebooting, using the app both on battery and plugged in, but it never works. I let it go for 15 minutes to see if it had it's own dimmer timer set but it never shut off. I couldn't let it go any longer for fear of damaging my display. Not to mention that the amount of time was already too long for it to kick in and still be useful. If I manually turn off the display, the app stops, so there is simply no way to use it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice features, but does not work well on Kindle Fire February 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
I love the timers and the sounds in this app. When I got it I wanted to set a short soft timer at 5 second intervals, a 1 minute timer to measuring progress, and a timer at the end to mark completion. This is very easy and intuitive to set up. The problem on the Kindle Fire is before every sound is played the audio circuit is turned on resulting in an audible "pop". My nice wood block sound every five seconds is preceded by this really irritating "pop". Irritation is not compatible with meditation. Completing apps like "At Ease" run a continuous sound track and don't suffer from this problem. I know this is one small blemish on an otherwise fine program, but I find it to be a show stopper. If the developers figure a way around this issue I'll amend this review.

Excellent timer. Best one I have ever used. More flexibility that anything I have ever seen. Well worth the $2. I am recommending it to all my meditation friends. I wish there was a desktop version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does not require internet to run March 8, 2013
Verified Purchase
On Kindle Fire HD 8.9" I heard no popping sound that others mentioned; the pop when the speaker turns on may be device specific, and were it my kindle doing that, I would call Kindle support. The app opened the first time while I had wireless off and operated fine. When I later enabled internet, then the map appeared. The list of people meditating only includes those who have deliberately signed in to the app's network, not just anyone with the program and a facebook app; very non-invasive, and what I wanted to know.

The sound would play along with an audiobook I had going as an experiment, without any 'argument'. I very much like that the volume levels for the individual bells can be individually set separate from the system volume. I do like that the timer continues to run when I go to the Fire home screen or access settings; I do not like that the bells do not sound if I am anywhere other than the running timer screen. Any other sound producing app I have continues to function while doing other things, including turning the Fire 'off' - a very useful feature which prevents accidental button presses and preserves battery life. While one is unlikely to be using other android features while meditating, this peculiarity of this timer limits its other possible usefulness to timing only off-device activities. I also was not impressed with the hide display function as it only 'erased' the timer's display, the Fire's display was still active though dimmer and likely using almost as much battery; also once hide the display was chosen within the running timer there was no way to make it stop auto-dimming the Fire without stopping the timer. I suggest the developer figure out how everyone else manages to allow their sounds to keep playing when a device is 'off' and make that work instead.

Can you silence all other options and leave just the timer on?
In the company description it says " Bells will ring even when the device is locked so you can turn off the screen to save power and eliminate ambient light." So perhaps if you locked the device the only other app that could ring would be one that can override the lock. The other choice... Read More
