Hello, friends of the SuttaCentral community I was dissatisfied with the current offering of meditation timers on the App Store, so I decided to make one. Unless my financial situation changes, the app will remain completely free, and I will eventually port it to Android as well. I’d really appreciate it if some of you could test it, and help me out with your feedback, so that I can keep working on it and making it more useful.
Though the app is meant to be secular and useful for all flavors of meditation, I decided to name it Ochre, referencing the famed ochre robes from the Suttas (even though the main color of the interface is saffron yellow, but that’s just because ochre is not a pretty color for an interface )
Anyways, here’s the link: Ochre: Meditation Timer on the App Store
I should add that the app is super simple right now, so with your help, it could go in any direction. My intention isn’t really to turn this into another one of those guided meditation programs with a monthly fee, because there are plenty of those already (and they’re pretty good), and because of the enormous effort involved with such a project/business. I just wanted to make an app for everyone else who doesn’t need all the extra weight of such programs, or for that person who maybe already has a practice going (such as, I assume, ourselves in this community).
I welcome any and all feedback. Metta.
