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.

Lovely sound but how do you set when it rings? I have Samsung s4 and I can't find a way of choosing the frequency that it rings

Great reminder A great way to check in with yourself throughout the day. It can remind you to make sure that you are on task, to stretch or to take a deep breath.

Love the simplicity Really like this app, and I appreciate that the developers have chosen to retain the simplicity of it. The bell is a familiar sound on my phone now.
