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.
Currently reported bugs all believed to be resolved. All bug reports welcome!
- This should have finally fixed the white texture bug on some devices. Feedback from owners of LG Optimus Black or Motorola Droid Razr particularly welcome, or anyone else who had problems with earlier versions.
- Additional features - user requests from the Google Play comments.
