  • Please update 🙏
    by Addfghjjkkm on 2017-10-08 at 9:43 PM

    This is a great app. I love it and have been using it for over 6 years. Please update it so it works on the new iPhone operating system. Thank you 🙏 x […]

  • Need to update app
    by ludokuma on 2017-10-06 at 12:04 PM

    Very frustrating to update my iOS and the application that most use is not up to date. You can up date please. […]

  • Personal favorite tool for daily meditation practice
    by Seikok on 2017-05-15 at 3:49 AM

    I have been using this app for years and can't imagine my life without it. I love the simplicity of the meditation timer and the thoughtfulness of logging part of the app. The log helps a lot for me to stay motivated. I have logged over 350 hours of my meditation practice and am currently aiming at 500 hours and then 1,000. The reason of one less star is because I keep getting a notification that this app slows down my phone. I am writing this with a hope that the author will notice this review and update the app for the current iOS. I love the app regardless. It's nearly perfect for my needs except the one issue. […]

  • Does exactly what I need it to do...
    by ByronAgain on 2017-03-29 at 3:55 PM

    ...and nothing else. Precisely what I was looking for, and it works fine. […]

  • Love this app please update it for compatibility
    by Golfboyzmom on 2016-12-25 at 10:07 PM

    My iPhone 6s says that the developers of this app need to update it for compatibility...please do so soon as I love iy […]

  • Needs an Update for iOS 10; Journaling Appears Broken
    by idgit on 2016-09-24 at 1:15 AM

    I love equanimity and am a long time user. Sadly the journaling function now crashes when a start taking notes. The timer and session tracking still function ok, but I was a regular journal user and it's disappointing to have to move to a journaling tool disconnected from my session date & duration records. […]

  • No developer support since 2012
    by JayTeeFr on 2016-05-19 at 11:40 AM

    Bugs are surfacing (specifically, resetting the duration of a session doesn't work properly now), but with no developer support or updates in years, I don't expect they'll be fixed. Time for a new meditation timer app. […]

  • Works without a hitch. iOS 9.2.1
    by anseldog on 2016-03-13 at 6:31 PM

    I enjoy the simplicity, focus, and beauty of this app. The sound of the bowls and gongs are so realistic to me. This app is a valued partner to my meditation practice. […]

  • Sadly, very buggy now
    by Widerwake on 2015-10-08 at 4:00 AM

    Oh no! Latest iOS update has rendered this app unusable now. Won't even launch. This was literally my favorite app of any kind on my phone for years -- it's been a real gift. But with iOS 8, the app got terribly buggy and now with the latest version of 9 won't even start. I can't recommend it until it's updated again (at which point I'd go back to five stars), and the developer seems MIA. Come back, Robin! 🙁 […]

  • Interval chime?
    by Barbara Ley on 2015-08-05 at 9:32 PM

    When I switched over to an iPhone 6 and downloaded this app on it, the interval chime stopped working. It worked fine on my iPhone 5. Please fix this, as its one of my favorite features! […]

  • Past perfect
    by dsw650 on 2015-07-16 at 5:19 PM

    This WAS a great, simple 5 star meditation app. Currently (with IOS 8 ?) it is a mediocre buggy regular timer. Lost on my phone is the ability to set interval chimes, which was a real positive. Also, the timer often fails to set to the time I want — it defaults to a previous position and ignores my changes. At this level, I’d be just as well off using my phone timer 🙁 […]

  • A gift
    by Geoffrey C. Brown on 2015-05-28 at 3:09 PM

    I really like the elegance and design of this app. I was looking for a timer and journal to help me get meditating "for real," with regularity this time and I found the perfect match for me. Tracking my day-to-day was a touch of additional motivation that really helps me. Thank you, Robin. […]

  • Gone downhill
    by DharmaPup on 2015-05-05 at 10:33 PM

    This used to be a five star app. What happened to the ability to set interval chimes? […]

  • Just a simple timer — with some flaws and a lack of options.
    by justinlowrie on 2015-03-18 at 5:40 PM

    It’s just that — a very simple timer. There are a few things that it lacks. You can’t change the chime (sound is not very good). You can only set your timer in 5 minute increments (Why, why why?). I’d like to NOT hear 3 chimes at the end. Why can’t I change that? This app should be free — with in-app purchases to do just what I described above. […]

  • outstanding meditation aid
    by mystikmike on 2015-02-07 at 5:38 PM

    I’ve been using this app for a few years now, and it has helped my practice immensely. the timer is not intrusive - just provides chimes (traditional singing bowl sound) at intervals the user sets, and the consecutive days tracker is a good incentive to keep sitting on a regular basis. the only thing i’d change would be to make the chimes ring a little longer - as this is a good re-focusing tool for me when i drift into thought…. thank you, Robin! […]

  • Excellent app for meditation
    by PhiloProf on 2014-11-29 at 2:21 PM

    I love this app over all the others. It is simple and does exactly what a meditation app should. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that the journal maxes out at 250 hours. I sit every day and hit that number about every 8 months. A simple reinstall resets the counter but it would be nice to have a longer time in the journal. […]

  • Is there going to be an update soon?
    by AHaghgoo on 2014-11-23 at 6:23 PM

    Absolutely love the app, but now I can't write my entries because the keyboard gets in the way. Please please please update! I'll be willing to pay for an upgrade. […]

  • Very good app, but seems to be problems I was 8.1
    by Decjr99 on 2014-11-22 at 10:53 PM

    I have used this app for nearly 2 years, and have really enjoyed it. However, lately with iOS 8.1, I'm having a very difficult time changing the period of time of the meditation. I'll try to change it three or four times and sometimes it just doesn't change. The time wheel rolls, but when you return to the start screen, the meditation period time length hasn't changed.Very inconvenient. […]

  • Not so good as I had hoped
    by sqpt on 2014-11-21 at 4:36 PM

    This app lacks the capacity to store a number of preset mediation programs and gives no meaningful choice on sounds for intervals, start and end. The journal feature is OK, but I use paper and pen anyway. […]

  • Excellent app
    by Luca Bassline on 2014-11-13 at 12:50 AM

    Simple and useful. Not distracting. It has a timer, tracks statistics, and allows you to make notes. I couldn't use another app. […]

  • Great, but killing battery
    by Jefftestingthis on 2014-10-16 at 2:35 AM

    Great app, but really should be updated. I think there's a bug that is causing the app to run in the background for the whole day, killing the battery. iOS 8 shows that it typically is responsible for 50% of my battery drain per day ("background activity"), even though I only use it once or twice a day with screen locked. (The workaround is to kill the app once done using it) Also, there's a bug regarding consecutive days. But that's no big deal 🙂 […]

  • Glorified stopwatch
    by jayrawz on 2014-10-10 at 3:00 PM

    Paid $6 for an app that's basically just a timer.. Don't bother […]

  • Waste of $4.99
    by eHeidi on 2014-06-12 at 1:49 AM

    This app crashes every time you tilt the phone into landscape mode, which means you're not able to access half of the function of the app. Seemed expensive for what it was, but considering it doesn't even work as described, a total waste of money. […]

  • Perfect, except
    by 222u on 2014-04-05 at 4:26 AM

    I love the simplicity of this app, and the ability to keep track of how often I sit. Unfortunately, since I frequently meditate after midnight, I don't get accurate tracking, since the app considers that I have missed that day. A way to set the time you want your "day" to begin and end would make the app much more useful for me. […]

  • You must record a meditation before rotation will work
    by dharmanaut on 2014-03-13 at 4:36 AM

    As others have mentioned, it crashes upon the required rotation. However, the developer suggested recording the first meditation, then the functionality does work. […]

  • Should cost .99cents
    by Atcny on 2014-03-12 at 11:42 AM

    Don't buy this app. There are much better timers for .99cents. This app crashes when you turn to landscape to check the journal which is the only reason to buy this app over others. The sound they chose will startle you out of your meditation and you can't change it. Not sure why it's more expensive than .99 cents and I'm not sure why I bought it. My mistake. Don't make the same one. Om...Feeling better already. […]

  • Crashes on my iPhone in landscape mode
    by Michael Van Veen on 2014-02-26 at 9:54 PM

    Really want to give this app 5 stars but it is currently crashing whenever I follow the main screen's instructions and rotate the screen to landscape mode to inspect my progress. I'm on iOS 7. […]

  • It crashes upon turning sideways!
    by Alexander Lockwood on 2014-01-15 at 7:27 AM

    Well I can't really access the app's features because it crashes. Ios6 […]

  • Gong
    by eb11web on 2013-12-30 at 2:55 PM

    Everything's great except the cheap gong sound. Either use a better gong sound or give options to change it. […]

  • Wonderful
    by Wavelydavely on 2013-12-02 at 12:09 AM

    Just one tiny glitch: the journal button is obscured before clicking i and backing out of settings. Otherwise great! […]

  • Great, but...
    by Beantown11445 on 2013-10-27 at 6:56 PM

    Love this and use it daily, but big flaw: if you have the ringer off during a setting and you get a phone call, the gong will fail to sound at the end of the session. This has turned a 20 min sit into a 35, etc. As a result, if you are pressed for time, you need to set another timer. Not optimal. Emailed Equanimity- after a couple of exchanges, they went dark. This problem existed on my iPhone 4 and now on my iPhone 5. […]

  • An excellent timer without distractions
    by splat-matt on 2013-10-13 at 11:28 PM

    ...so many meditation timer apps provide soothing ambient music and/or backgrounds with serene or new age themes. Those features distract you from the actual purpose of meditating. You need to clear your mind and learn to observe, but not participate in your thoughts. Adding objects and sound will only complicate your practice. This app provides the basics and yet delivers depth through it's timer options. It will chime when you start your practice and at each intervals you set to help your refocus your silent practice or signal the start of additional forms of meditation like chanting or walking. The design is elegant and friendly to use. Which allows you to focus on your practice rather the app itself. […]

  • Needs an Update
    by avanderbilt on 2013-10-13 at 3:43 PM

    This *was* the best meditation timer in the App Store but it is badly in need of an update. It needs to fit the iPhone 5 screen and fix crashes in iOS 7. It hasn't been updated in a year. If these things were fixed it would be a ten star app. […]

  • Perfect!
    by Typodontist on 2013-08-20 at 10:37 PM

    I like the option to have occasional chimes during the session, it helps me keep my mind off the clock. It is also great to track sessions and be able to log a journal with a session. […]

  • Helped my meditation practice
    by DMLL822 on 2013-08-11 at 3:33 AM

    I found that the app's design (tracking longest and current run of uninterrupted days in which I meditated) served as a gentle reminder and motivator that truly helped keep me meditating regularly. At this point meditation is part of my daily routine. Raving about a meditation app seems contradictory. That said, this app has served me well and gently kept my practice on track. That's more than I could reasonably hope for. […]

  • Just Great
    by Od. P on 2013-07-26 at 7:21 PM

    Everything it needs to be. Additional export options (Dropbox?) would be awesome, but not necessary. […]

  • Simply the best
    by Edubbz252 on 2013-06-17 at 7:24 PM

    A streak counter was important for me as we'll as a great note taking component. This app has everything and more. The only thing that would make it even nicer would be a Google Drive sync feature for the log and notes. […]

  • Excellent meditation aid
    by jj9843 on 2013-05-27 at 12:07 PM

    This app is beautifully simple, and an excellent meditation aid. The periodic chimes really help me to reconnect with the present moment. […]

  • Please make this for the Ipad
    by NYCPaddler on 2013-03-23 at 3:20 PM

    I would love to use this app on my Ipad. Please make a version of it for Ipad! […]

  • Best Meditation app!!
    by enigma3k on 2013-01-26 at 2:00 PM

    Tried all the others but this one is the best. […]

  • Just what I needed
    by annabelly23 on 2013-01-16 at 1:55 AM

    This app has been so helpful for my home meditation practice. Especially useful is the optional badge that pops up on the app's icon letting me know how many days since I last meditated. […]

  • Great helper!
    by Sbc101 on 2013-01-11 at 10:13 PM

    Very nice interface & very easy to use. The timer makes it easy to quickly check where I am in my meditation time without being too distracted, and the settings are very flexible. Great program! […]

  • The best meditation timer in the App Store
    by jordantbro on 2012-10-21 at 9:54 PM

    Support for the iPhone 5's 4" screen would be appreciated. […]

  • Love
    by Jessecor on 2012-10-03 at 3:46 PM

    I just started a Transcendental Meditation practice about two months ago...I learned about this app early on, and have used it for almost 30 hours of meditation so far! I love the prep time and cool down...I only wish there was a 3 minute cool down option...for TM, it's a 30 second prep, 20 minute meditation, and 3 minute cool down...but otherwise, really loving this app! […]

  • Great Timer, meditation or otherwise
    by elldee h on 2012-08-08 at 4:37 PM

    Simple, clean, great UI. The timer bells and sounds are just right. This a great meditation timer. I use it for cooking and other timer use too. highly recommended […]

  • I love this app
    by pdtbirju on 2012-07-12 at 2:35 AM

    This is my favorite app! The number of consecutive days and cumulative time statistics are very motivating. I would love to be able to use it to track other daily disciplines. Any chance a multitask version could be developed? Thank you so much for a terrific, beautiful app:) […]

  • it's worth it!
    by Wallyvon on 2012-06-23 at 2:33 AM

    This app is very complete. Totally worth the little extra money you pay for it compared to other similar apps (I used another one before, so I could really compare and notice the difference). Because I'm not a super gadget-person, at first I was having a hard time understanding and finding some of the features in the app. But I wrote Robin, the developer, and his attention was fast, warm, and absolutely helpful. This is someone who honestly cares about people who are interested or have bought his app, and I totally recommend if you are having any problems with the app or have doubts before purchasing it, contact Robin. He'll help you and truly consider your suggestions to make the app as perfect for you as possible. Go to www.meditate.mx/support to find his email. […]

  • Chimes do work with current version but settings have changed for some people.
    by antigone23 on 2012-06-10 at 3:16 AM

    Hi, This is a note from the author. A few people have reported problems with the chimes when their phone goes into sleep mode. This is a result of a settings issue that doesn't require an update to fix. So far the problem has been resolved for all users who have contacted me, and new users have not been affected. If you have this problem or any other, please visit the support link above where you will find instructions on how to correct the problem, or go to www.meditate.mx/support in your web browser. I answer all support email messages, but I have no way to help you if you leave a negative review here because Apple doesn't pass on contact details. Please at least contact me to see if I can help you first. Thanks for buying the app! Please vote up this comment as helpful so people can see it. […]

  • New update takes sound away :/
    by PurpleRain67 on 2012-05-25 at 11:17 PM

    In the couple of weeks that I dl'd this app, my sittings have increased from 5 mins/day to 40-50 mins/day. Totally worth the price. If your serious about meditating, this is the app for u. Update- the sound no longer works when on sleep mode- very distracting Plz fix ASAP! My 12 yo daughter & I love this app. Is it available for droid? […]

  • Great app
    by klw7 on 2012-05-25 at 5:31 AM

    I really like this app for the timer, stats and journal. My biggest issue with the stats is how it calculates a day. If i sat at 11:35pm one day and 11:50pm the next, it'd say I missed a day. I hate skewing my stats because of that. Is there a way we could set a 24 hour period ourselves? Also, the journal button in the lower left disappears, have to go to timer page and out for it to reappear. Overall, really like and have recommended....just a few ideas! […]

As featured on NPR's "All Tech Considered" – 12th March 2013

"It's a great timer with super extras. I recommend it highly." – TUAW Review, 26th July 2010

Note: This version is iOS7 compatible. A free update with upgraded design is coming soon.

Equanimity has been very carefully designed to help you establish and maintain a daily meditation practice.

The elegant meditation timer times your sittings, provides a beautiful journal for sitting notes, and displays graphical tracking giving you clear feedback on your meditation practice. It's carefully designed to be the ideal companion for anyone who meditates.

The journal is comparable in quality to many standalone note-taking apps. It allows you to optionally take notes after your sittings, and lets you browse through your meditation history as either a visually annotated log or textual journal. All of your recorded data can be exported, as a nicely formatted email that you can print, or as a table that you can load into a spreadsheet. You can also email individual entries – useful for posting them on a blog.

Easy to read graphics let you know at a glance how regularly you are meditating, and how long your daily practice has been going. A chart illustrates your progress over the course of the year, and a bar graph shows the total number of hours you have meditated.

To remind you if you forget to sit, the application icon optionally counts the number of days since you last meditated.

It's much easier to keep going with a routine when you can see so clearly how you are doing.

The timer shows time passing using clean graphics that let you see at a glance where you are within your sitting period without being unduly distracted.

If your meditation routine incorporates different stages within a single sitting, you can set chimes to ring at the appropriate points using straightforward controls.

You can turn off the ringer and the gongs will still sound, so you don't need to worry about being interrupted by phone calls or SMS. If you need to attend to a message briefly, you can carry on from where you left off. For people whose meditation practice involves chants or prayer, you can also switch to other apps and the timer will still run and the chimes will still ring.

Because the timer is intended to be used every day, the design provides a calm and clear experience without unnecessary clutter.

This application has helped me to make meditation a daily practice, and I hope it can do the same for you.

Customer Service: if you are considering leaving a poor review, please contact me to see if I can help you first. I reply to every single customer email.
