Zazen - Meditation Timer
By InnoBytes, Wolfgang Kohrt
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
In zen buddhism, zazen (seated meditation) is a meditative discipline.
This nice timer utility guides you practicing zazen or other meditative disciplines using sounds and background images.
Use the stones for time setting or choose enhanced time setting:
You are able to customize your meditation sessions, each containing as many meditation events as you need. Each event can have it‘s own sound. You can choose a sound from a predefined chimes list, or you can add your own chimes and background music from the iPod. The duration of each event can be variable or fixed. Finally choose a background image for your meditation from a predefined image list or add an image from your iPhoto library.
A journal tracks all your meditation sessions in chronological order.
Alternatively, use the timer to simply fall asleep with your favorite music. The timer will stop the iPod automatically after a predefined time.
Now touch the candlelight to start your meditation, take a breath, relax and wait for the first gong sound to come...

Very Good Zazen Timer
Functions very well after learning set up procedure. Has enhanced timer function for more complex sessions. Recommended.
Lots of features
Overall a solid app, I haven't noticed any bugs. I'm only giving it 4 stars because it's not very intuitive. You need to really read the instructions page in order to set it up well.
