Description

As featured on NPR's "All Tech Considered" - 12th March 2013

"It's a great timer with super extras. I recommend it highly." - TUAW Review, 26th July 2010

Note: This version is iOS7 compatible. A free update with upgraded design is coming soon.

Equanimity has been very carefully designed to help you establish and maintain a daily meditation practice.

The elegant meditation timer times your sittings, provides a beautiful journal for sitting notes, and displays graphical tracking giving you clear feedback on your meditation practice. It's carefully designed to be the ideal companion for anyone who meditates.

The journal is comparable in quality to many standalone note-taking apps. It allows you to optionally take notes after your sittings, and lets you browse through your meditation history as either a visually annotated log or textual journal. All of your recorded data can be exported, as a nicely formatted email that you can print, or as a table that you can load into a spreadsheet. You can also email individual entries - useful for posting them on a blog.

Easy to read graphics let you know at a glance how regularly you are meditating, and how long your daily practice has been going. A chart illustrates your progress over the course of the year, and a bar graph shows the total number of hours you have meditated.

To remind you if you forget to sit, the application icon optionally counts the number of days since you last meditated.

It's much easier to keep going with a routine when you can see so clearly how you are doing.

The timer shows time passing using clean graphics that let you see at a glance where you are within your sitting period without being unduly distracted.

If your meditation routine incorporates different stages within a single sitting, you can set chimes to ring at the appropriate points using straightforward controls.

You can turn off the ringer and the gongs will still sound, so you don't need to worry about being interrupted by phone calls or SMS. If you need to attend to a message briefly, you can carry on from where you left off. For people whose meditation practice involves chants or prayer, you can also switch to other apps and the timer will still run and the chimes will still ring.

Because the timer is intended to be used every day, the design provides a calm and clear experience without unnecessary clutter.

This application has helped me to make meditation a daily practice, and I hope it can do the same for you.

Most wonderful part of my day

:
I am relatively new to sitting meditation. It was a bit disorienting at first, sitting there, not knowing how much time had passed or how often I was sitting.

Equanimity has been a true blessing. It is so beautiful and calming, simple but with a powerful underlying base. The gongs and chimes that sound when I start and finish sitting help set the meditating mood and bring me a sense of quiet peace.

I love seeing my progress every day, challenging myself to continue and deepen my practice, and writing my thoughts in the integrated journal to document insights or ideas that came to me during meditation.

This app is much less expensive than a meditation class and provides most of the same benefits, and I get to use it wherever I (and my iPhone) go.

I feel gratitude every day for the helpful tool and loving friend that this app is becoming. Try it out in your own practice, or use it to get started meditating. Peace.

Update: after several months of using this app, I am now a seasoned meditator, sitting for half an hour each day. It's not a stretch to say that this app has transformed my life in many positive ways!
