Dharma Timer Counter

Dharma Timer Counter


Dharma Timer Counter is a simple, small (just 200KB, compared to several MB of other similar apps) and intuitive timer/counter app that is suitable for measuring time in timed activities. It rings a beautiful bell at every specified interval for the specified number of times. I developed this app mainly for my 108 bows buddhist practice and meditation. Beautiful belltones are available for download and use directly from the app. Multiple starting/stop bells and starting bell delay are supported. Practice your mind with this app and get closer to attaining more enlightened mind! One can also increase/decrease the number so it can be used as a manual counter app as well.

-- Update history --
v2.0.1 (8/18/2011): Fixed a bug on the incorrect number of starting bells. Sorry and thanks for letting me know this bug.

v2.0: Finally belltone download/selection features added (thanks for your patience), multiple starting/stop bells, starting bell delay. If you have and want to use your own belltone audio file, you can do so by simply copying your audio files to /sdcard/Android/data/com.melcornsoft.dtcfull/belltone.

An excellent aid for exercising and reading I use this app when doing strength training. I calculated 2 seconds per rep x the number of reps x the number of exercises with 2 seconds to change position for each exercise. 2 seconds x 12 reps x 7 exercises + 6x2 seconds for changing position. Bell Interval 0:00:02 Number of Bells 96 I also set the timer to 1 minute intervals for 10 minutes when I am reading. I catch myself if my mind wanders. Plus it makes the discipline of daily reading easier.

Interesting I've used this at times when I've wanted to stay focused and aware of time - not the original purpose, but I will try it for meditation sometime :)
