Thank you for using Meditator!
i have tried most of the meditation/timer apps and this one is by far my favorite -- its easy to use and has a clean and simple interface. i also really like the "vibrate only" option which is great for silent retreat or shared meditation space ... just set it to vibrate and put it in your pocket.
that said, there is one *major* issue (as others have pointed out): if you get an incoming call or message while the timer is running, the app will often pause the timer, leaving you sitting and sitting, thinking "good lord, seems like i've been sitting for hours." and perhaps you have. this has been a persistent issue since the earliest versions of this app and would probably warrant a 3-star review if i didn't like everything else about the app so much.
lastly, the one feature that is sorely missed is a setting to automatically activate airplane mode for the duration of the session. iOS doesn't technically allow apps to do this, but seems like in this case some sort of hack would be in order ... or if this is not possible at least some sort of reminder in case you forget to activate airplane mode before starting a session.
I especially love the singing bowl mp3 tone upgrade option which gives distinct sounds for each of the three preset meditation times. I like the warm up setting too, which I set to 30 seconds to get settled, prior to the official time start. The start, interval and end tones which can ring 1,2 or 3 x's and can be all different sounds per period is nice. Setting the intervals at 10 minutes for 30 minute sessions, 9 min for 45 min session and 12 min for 60 min sessions keeps you focused on your breath rather than wandering how long you have been sitting. I have been using the Salubrion Enso by Pearl time clock which is terrific, but with the additional mp3 sounds of the Meditator I prefer this app. They function the same, but this app with mp3 upgrade is one twelfth the cost. I will definitely be telling my fellow Buddhist at my Shambhala Sanga how perfect the Meditator app is in every dimension. This app seems to have been developed by Meditators for Meditators.
Gentle, spiritual sounds -- good for simple timing!
Delightful timer! I absolutely adore the Tibetan sounds, bells, bowls, and chants. I am an author and tend to lose track of time while writing. Instead of an oven timer with an irritating, jangling racket, I now have this sweet timer. I can see it would work very well for a meditating user. The software is extremely flexible, the sounds pleasant. The only improvement I suggest... and I'm not sure this is possible with the iPad2.. is for the Meditator to continue timing in background when switching to another application -- (use the whole word, you lazy Apple users! 'App' is short for Appalachian State University! You guys really missed out on creating the term APPLE-CATION! There. That's off my chest.) Anyway, the Meditator stops dutifully when you switch, and will restart easily enough, but you cannot leave it to go somewhere else and have it continue counting down.
