ZenFriend: A new meditation timer for iPhone

zenfriend1I’ve recently been trying out a new meditation timer app for iPhone. It’s very nicely designed and has a lot of promise. And it’s free today, and for the next two days.

The app is called ZenFriend, and it has a very clean and, well, friendly design scheme. The other app I use for timing meditations is the well-known Insight Timer, which I enjoy using, although I don’t like the faux-wood design. Skeuomorphism is so iOS6!

Download Wildmind’s FREE iPhone app

mzl.gcljpckd.320x480-75Wildmind’s first iPhone app is available for download from iTunes. And it’s FREE!

This is our first attempt at an app, and it’s very simple.

It simply takes the blog and presents the most recent posts from the news, on practice, reviews, and quote of the month categories.

The app was put together for us by Tony Paine, who is a software engineer in the Bay Area, and also a Buddhist who used to be part of the sangha at Aryaloka, …

Religion, iPhone mingle with spiritual apps

The Rev. Roderick Belin of Kairos Community AME Church in NashvilleBefore the Rev. Roderick Belin gets ready to preach, he grabs his Bible and his iPhone.

He uses the mobile device to look up Bible verses and theology texts and to alert him if his sermon runs too long. If he forgets the words to a hymn, his phone can save the day. That’s what happened on a recent Sunday.

“I was singing ‘His Eye is on the Sparrow,’ and I had the first verse but wasn’t too sure about the second,” said Belin, pastor of Kairos Community AME Church. A few taps …
