Mindfulness Bell

Mindfulness Bell


The Mindfulness Bell rings periodically during the day, to give you the opportunity to hold on for a moment and consider what you are currently doing, and in what state of mind you are while you are doing it. According to the Zen Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh, this is an effective means of developing mindfulness.

If you wonder where the "menu button" is: it is the three little dots in the corner of the screen, next to the "back", "home" and "switch apps" button.

Thanks to Uwe Damken, we now have a new release of this open source project. Want to help? Check out http://mindbell.googlecode.com !

1. We hope this release fixes the Mindfulness Bell for Galaxy S5 users -- the menu should now appear in the title bar.

2. New configuration feature: you can now mute the bell when the phone is in flight mode.

We now use the permission READ_PHONE_STATE so that we can show a grey notification when the phone is in flight mode.

User reviews of Mindfulness Bell
I have been using Mindfulness Bell for a couple of years now, and it is an important part of my day. The app works perfectly on my Samsung, and the bell sound is beautiful. Just a note - I see a review that says it is not in sync with the clock. This is a deliberate, and very important feature of the app. It's not an hourly chime. It varies slightly from the period you set it at, and that variation is what allows you to notice the chime.

Favorite app. I have it set for every hour, to remind me to take an awareness breathe.

Great, nice and simple My only wish for this app would be the addition of a "mute with headphones" option.

Lovely Reminder...How to run it on Galaxy S5 I LOVE this App and THANK YOU FOR THE MENU UPDATE! I found the solution to accessing the old menu on my S5, but I'm so happy to see an update -- With that said...this app has a Beautiful graphic, bell tone and the perfect settings for how often to ring, when to start the reminders and when to stop for the day. Lovely on my Galaxy S5. Best part..No special permissions needed!
