This app provides resources to support your daily practice of SGI Nichiren Buddhism. First, there is a chanting calculator that allows you to set and track chanting targets (campaigns). There is also an audio guide useful as an aid in learning the daily recitation of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and the Lotus Sutra. You can set your goals and watch your progress! There are several other useful tools such as a location finder for SGI-USA facilities and links to the new World Tribune website.

Thank you! Let's keep it up!!
First, thank you for this wonderful app! I'm sure many people will benefit greatly from it, and I am enjoying it thoroughly. If I could describe what I feel are the "pros" of the app, I would start with the design, which is sleek and pretty, and easy to use. I appreciate the "goals", and particularly, the "campaign" feature; it is very fun and encouraging to watch my percentage go up the more I chant. I find the fast daimoku audio to be very invigorating and comforting. And it is great that many other resources such as websites can be easily reached through the app.
As for the "cons", I did notice that the daimoku audio very abruptly breaks its loop around every 4 minutes of playing, which can be quite jarring in the middle of one's earnest chanting. And one thing I greatly wish for is a faster gongyo audio--the slow one is great for beginners, but the current "fast" one is still very slow! So for now I don't use that audio, though I certainly will if another speed is added!
Overall I'd say the app is a great success, very useful, encouraging, pretty, convenient, and well-functioning. I will be showing it to many people! Thanks again, and I hope to see the app grow from here!
While I love the App I wish you could have more than one campaign at a time and, at least for me, it doesn't log daimoku every time I chant. It seems to log it sporadically which is a little frustrating.
