[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Independent developer, Chad Sager, announces Lotus Bud - Meditation Timer 1.5, an update to the meditation timers, with new features to support a strong, healthy, lasting meditation practice.
Goals allows a user to set up a Challenge or an Ongoing goal which presents an easy to read chart, showing a user their progress. Options to integrate with the Apple's Reminders app and auto-incrementing the meditation time help to build a strong meditation practice.
There are four ways to meditate: Timed, to count down a specific number of minutes; Until, to end at a specific time and; Untimed, for the times a user wants to stretch their meditation muscles. For more structure users can create a retreat with multiple sessions. This allows them to alternate between different meditations like sitting and walking, just like an actual meditation retreat.
Timeline shows a heat-map that changes color based on how consistent the practice is, to put their larger efforts in perspective.
"I created Lotus Bud to help with the difficult task of establishing and maintaining a meditation practice that embodied the simplicity I found in meditation. This is the app I wanted for myself, and know others will feel the same," says Chad Sager, Lotus Bud developer and designer.
