Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
I use this app every day. I'm not sure why some are critical here - it absolutely serves its purpose, it counts. I love it. Convenient, easy, and private. I would like to make some suggestions though such as being able to change to different sounds for 'clicking' bead and would love to be able to upload a photo of my guru on the bead and the option to change the back ground would be awesome. Perhaps some other chants or bhajans, morning prayers etc. incorporated into the app to expand it to it's greatest potential. :)
Tap sound is inaudible …
… on an iPod used by someone with older ears. The frequencies that make up the tap sound don’t carry well, or turn corners at all. I have to max the volume and aim the speakers at my face to hear the tiny, tinny tap. Suggestion: make the tap adjustably louder, and then test it on your parents. A choice of tasteful taps would make it easier to choose an audible one.
Also — It’s not your fault that the standard (non-iPhone) iPad doesn’t have a phone buzzer to vibrate after 108 beads. It is your fault that you rely on the imaginary buzzer. Maybe, optionally, the app could instead make a chime sound with the iPod’s speaker, so the user will know they’ve completed a lap.
While you’re fixing it, you should consider adding a setting to adjust how many beads constitute a lap. If I could set it to chime after 72 audible taps, this app would meet my needs, and be worth five stars. As is, it’s more of a distraction than a useful tool.
Wonderful App, Want more features
Wonderful app! Helps in my spiritual practice and improves my peace of mind. My request number 1, need audible sound - something different from tap sound - after Mala completion. I use iPhone and vibration after Mala completion not working for me. My request number 2, please add functionality to change Mala type. Now only one type. Would like be to change to Tulsi Beads when I need. Thank you in advance.
