About Meditation Words 0.4.6
This version of Meditation Words is available in the Android Market!
This simple Android application walks the user through a variety of exercises and prayers which can be used for meditation. Meditation Words shows words or phrases on the top and bottom of the screen. The top is for your in-breath, and the bottom is for your out-breath. You can optionally enable soothing ocean wave sounds.
The words fade in and out at a breathing pace, and the animation slows after a few breaths (view screenshots).
There are several built-in exercise, including a simple breathing exercise, Buddhist readings, selections from Tao Te Ching, and Christian prayers. You can input your own mediation or prayer using OI Notepad, if installed.
Meditation Words supports goes to Kiva, the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website. Microcredit is the extension of very small loans (e.g. $25) to the unemployed, to poor entrepreneurs and to others living in poverty.
