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.

Bug There is a bug in this app that opens all apps while this one is in use. It's also a pity that the resonating sound is cut short, not a full length recording

Used to "Love it!" No longer a model app with its new app permission. When on flight mode I still would like to be reminded to be mindful anyway. And I disagree particularly with that specific identity permission. Disappointed.

Kept reseting my alarm volume to max. Eventually I just had to get rid of it.

A needed deep breath! This lovely bell which rings every hour is now looked forward to not only by me but by all my knitting group. A nice deep breath is often needed.
