ManiWheel

ManiWheel


ManiWheel is a Buddhist prayer wheel (mani wheel) app for Android. The Dalai Lama has stated that digital prayer wheels can generate merit in the same way as physical ones.

It offers a choice of prayer wheels: a fixed one such as those you would see at stupas or by the road, and a handheld one to be carried. Currently the prayer wheels only feature the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum", although the aim for the next release is to support loading different mantra packs from the filesystem. There are options for ambient sound, prayer wheel noises and chanting to accompany your prayer wheel use.

Compatibility: the app uses touchscreen and accelerometer sensors. If your phone does not have these it should still be possible to operate the wheels using automatic mode.

Known Bugs:
Currently reported bugs all believed to be resolved. All bug reports welcome!

Privacy policy: ManiWheel collects no information about you whatsoever.

Recent changes:

A Great App. Finally, an app that can actually help us practice the Dharma! The fact that the virtual prayer wheel contains mani mantras— and allows us to generate merit like real-life ones — makes this a one-of-a-kind app. While being simple and easy-to-use, it provides us with the options of activating certain sounds to enhance our experience. I would like to thank the developer for benefitting numerous sentient beings through this app and also recommend this app to all droid-using Dharma practitioners.
