Pure Meditation: Written and Video iPhone App Review
Are you into meditation? If so, then you’re likely aware of the fact that there are very few resources available to you on the iPhone to help your meditations along. Or, the ones that do exist lie somewhere at the intersection of Quack Street and Strange Avenue. However, we’re here today to present to you a different option. It’s called Pure Meditation and it’s by developer Chris Burns. The app provides the user with a set of real-world meditation guides designed to encourage a deeper spiritual understanding of the practice. It’s also free for a day, which makes it a tremendous opportunity, as well. For our full review, you need only to slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
You might realize it, but the iPhone is actually a tremendous platform on which to build a mediation guide. Here’s why: Most of us tend to carry our phones around with us all the bloody time. As a result, we’re used to having them on hand. With Pure Meditation installed, this means you are literally a few taps of a finger away from guided meditation whenever you like.
The guides held within the app are pretty slick, too. They provide you with a pleasing background (one of five) to look at, as well as a voice which narrates the experience from beginning to end. You can even set a timer on the whole, if you happen to have to be somewhere in just a bit. Lastly, the app also comes with an Insight section that provides quite a lot of information on the practice of meditation, including benefits of, the history therein, and all around reasons for practicing. From the ground up, Pure Meditation is the ideal pocket companion for meditators of any age or experience.
Graphics and Design
For the most part, Pure Meditation happens to look pretty smooth on the iPhone, as well. It comes with a standard sort of tabbed list layout that enables the user to slide or scroll through the included sections. Once a lesson has been clicked, the meditator is given a set of easy-to-manage controls right on screen. These aren’t the prettiest of buttons we’ve ever seen, but considering how easy it is to navigate around Pure Meditation’s features, we suppose we can hardly complain about this. All in all, the app is simplistic, effective and easy on the eyes.
As stated, Pure Meditation also happens to be free for a limited time only. This means now is absolutely the best time to grab the app if you have even a passing interest in meditation. It comes with a few basic lessons available sans prix, but more guides will typically only cost you a dollar. This means Pure Meditation is a tremendous value from the ground up, and as stated already, is perhaps one of the best meditation guides available on the App Store. If that’s not a recommendation, then we don’t know what is!
Pure Meditation requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
