Vipassana Meditation Retreat

Having not found an Android™ Meditation App suitable for our daily Vipassana Meditation practice, we'd decided to invest our time and resources into making a useful App for our group of meditators as well as for the Vipassana Meditation Community out in the world.
As we are not interested in time wasting and distracting features of commercial Apps, we made an efficient and reliable timer to help us maintain our meditation sessions.
 
We hope you will find the Vipassana Meditation Timer useful and distraction free. The learn a little more about us visit the BLOG.

Since the Vipassana Meditation Timer App launch, our community has grown from a few individuals to hundreds of meditators.
 
Although we are not in the physical presence of each other, we are all participants in the meditation community. As a community, we care for each other, we share common values and have a sense of place in our Planet as a whole, no borders, no countries.
 
The level of feedback we have received is outstanding; the level of participation in providing suggestions for improvements has been great, thank you all so much.

Frequently Asked Questions


Answer

No, there is not one at the moment
The meditation session cannot be paused, but only stopped by pressing the 00 bubble.
If you have any particular reason for the feature to be available please argument it by sending some feedback via the App and we will see what we can do to help.

Answer

Yes, it is possible
In fact, there are more than one way. You could simply turn off your device connection to the Internet, that will make the Ad not to appear. We do not collect much money from the ads, less than dollars a month, we rather for users to turn off the WiFi connection in order to avoid disturbance during the meditation session. If you still need to be connected to the Internet during the meditation session, it's perfectly understandable; we will send you a code to remove ads if you will be so kind to purchase one of our Meditation Beads Necklesses, we felt bad to just ask for money to remove ads. Any proceeds goes to the maintenance and development of the App.

Answer

Currently Android as a platform deploys to thousands of different mobile phone models and brands. With limited resources, it's very hard for us to be able to test the App on all devices, we rely on the feedback your leave via the App, to work out solutions and make the App as efficient as possible. Having said that, we have realized that the majority of complaints come from users that have not upgraded the App to the latest version. Please visit the App page on Google Play and update the App, right now. Also, most users seem to attribute the problem to the screen going to sleep or locking; the problem is the sound file associated with the end of session that is not found, therefore an error is produced; at every App upgrade do not forget to re-instate your sound file reference via the Sounds screen which might have been lost during installation or for some other reason, it's that simple. Furthermore some device models, require storage permissions for the App, that have to be allowed manually by accessing the App info via the Android Apps Settings, continue to Permissions and checking the Storage Permission. Please do also note that only certain sound file types work and that an excessively large file might create memory leaks with the App, nothing we can do about it. Having said that if the problem persists do not hesitate to get in touch via the feedback feature of the App, we'll try our best to help.

Answer

We apologize for the quality of the pre-loaded sound files, we know they are not the best :-). Having said that, you can upload your own sound files by choosing "your own sound clip" option on the Sounds library screen and following the instructions. As far as the loudness or softness of sounds, you can also use the volume lever within the same screen to mitigate the problem of a low quality sound.

Answer

We have originally created the Vipassana Meditation Timer App as a support tool to our meditation community. Since the launch of the App on Google Play thousands of people have started using it for daily meditation practice, we are very glad about it. A portion of users has requested for meditation instructions. Unfortunately we have no facility nor expertise to provide online tuitions. We have therefore connected with Giovanni at Live and Dare. He's a professional meditation instructor and he can help you with the basics of meditation with his online courses and more. Feel free to visit his website and take the courses if so desired.
