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.

I love the meditation timer but it is using a ridiculous amount of battery juice. Shortly after I started using it I noticed I was needing to charge my Kindle Fire every night, where as before I started using the app, I could go a week between charges.

I installed the GSam Labs Battery Monitor app to figure out why. The battery app shows that the Insight Timer app is still running in the background all day long, keeping my kindle awake, even though I've exited the app and I'm not using the Kindle. So now that I know what is going on, I manually Force Stop the app at the end of my meditation, but people should not have do that. Apps should be designed to hibernate when not in use.

This may be a great app but what a rip of money when they don't do a new release for kindle app but leave it here for you to buy it! After download and paying my $3.15, it then says update to new version through Google Play Store. Features don't work properly and eats your battery. Really disappointed. I would have known had I read the comments. Please take this down or update for Kindle buyers. That's not ok to take our money, when we can't use it like everyone else can.

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!

I agree with ellenmae' s review. I purchased it a few days ago, since I want to be able to access it from another source other than my mobile. I can not access the insight connect. I was only able to do it on two occasions only. What is this? It also says to update it through Google. How can I do that with my Kindle?
Please update this app for kindle users. The app is fabulous on my mobile ,which is free! However, I paid for this one and it is useless. Waiting for a satisfactory response. Thank you.

Kindle store version is a pale shadow of the Google Play and iOS versions of this app. I like those versions a lot. Love the sound and the social connections. I am running a Kindle Fire 6 5th Gen. Play Store version will not install on my Kindle Fire so I bought the one for sale in the Kindle app store. This version will not keep my login credentials and immediately asks to be updated, but there is no way to update via the Kindle app store. Very disappointed.

I got the commercial version of the app from the Amazon store and it worked fine. But now the new version is only available on Google Play, and there's no way to update or any kind of discount for previous users/owners. Guess I'll be looking elsewhere.

I really wish this app would work. I love the sounds, they are really good quality. When I set a time, it never goes off until I actually check it, then it dings long after it was supposed to. And it doesn't have the feature of setting it for intervals for specific meditations.. For example, I do 5 minutes of one technique, 25 minutes of another, then 5 minutes of another. I can set my phone to vibrate to the three times without interruption. this timer, if it worked, would have to be fully set it after each technique and that doesn't work for what I do. I have no clue how one gets a refund for an app. If anyone knows, I would love a response.

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.
