Murmuration: Written iPhone App Review
Murmuration from developer Kosuke Hata is an application available for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The point of Murmuration is to provide you with a way to meditate with grace and no distractions through your iDevice. The application is a meditation timer with unique and intuitive controls to help enrich the meditation experience. The application’s purpose is to help you time your meditations, and it’s great controls go a long way towards achieving that goal.
The features of Murmuration are pretty powerful. You can track your session and see the details of your progress, change the sound at the end of the session, and change the duration that the timer goes for. The real beauty of the app is in the design and interface, but the app does have some features that make it functional. I’ll go into the design below, but if you’re looking for a mediation app that places an emphasis on ease of use, then Murmuration might be for you.
To start, the design of Murmuration is incredible. The application places an emphasis on swiping, much like the checklist app, Clear. The swiping is fully integrated into the controls to provide a flawless user experience. Setting the duration of the timer is as simple as swiping up or down on the screen. Since the application is a meditation timer, distractions only hurt you. The interface and design is clear and clean, with no annoying buttons or visual distractions. So the design is great if you’re looking for a meditative timer app. As an added bonus, the app is also optimized for the iPhone 5, has a variety of tips, tutorials, settings, etc.
Overall the app can be incredibly valuable if you’re into meditation. This app can be your assistant meditation timer with it’s superb interface, easy-to-use controls, and integrated gestures. It’s optimized for the iPhone 5, and is often updated. The features work well and give you a sense of customization because you can customize the app to your specific wants and desires.
he concept is solid, because when you’re meditating, you don’t want to lose track of time. In total I would recommend this to anyone that meditates on a regular basis. It has a great design, uses gestures, and is very simple to use. Great app.
Murmuration is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for the iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
