Insight Meditation Timer

A friend showed me the excellent Insight Timer which I put on my iPhone earlier this month. It has lots of nice features, not least of which is keeping a log, producing beautiful bell-tones, and 'connecting' you with others using it all over the globe. Very neat little app.

I've never used it but a lot of people over on the other DW seem to like it:

I have a couple of silent vibrio watches as gifts. Used once I think. A traditional method was using incense that has a known burning time . . . :twothumbsup:

I've been usimg this for some months now. I really like it and its features.

Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them
