  • Awesome App

    By K. Mhoon
    Love the app. Love the chant log feature and how I can see how much chanting I've done over the week, month, year, etc. Gongyo voice is a little weird. Chanting isn't seamless.
  • Auto-lock shuts off audio

    By dpolj
    The audio shuts off when the phone’s display goes dark. So every 5 minutes of chanting, I have to reset the app to restart the audio. There needs to be a setting where you can override this. Should be able to conserve battery life and still chant for more than 5 minutes.
  • My true chant buddy!

    By dd_pavlova
    This app has become an inseparable part of my daily practice! I can't imaging chanting without it when I practice on my own. It's perfect and I love it so much! Thank you!
  • Great App, but times out?

    By mac10012
    Wonderful app with a few glitches to work out. When im timing my chanting, i have to set my phone screen so it wont lock. It stops logging the time when that happens. Either that or keep touching the screen before phone locks. Id think the app would stay open while the timer is in use or the time would at least keep running. A little confusing to pay 1.99 for an upgrade & then asked to pay 2.99 again. Why not just make it 4.99 or 5 and call it a day? Otherwise I enjoy this app alot. NMRK
  • Basically okay but getting more buggy lately! :/

    By Boddhisattva7
    I’ve been using this app for over 5 years now. they constantly increased the price for basic functions (e.g. Track goals) which used to be free. On top of that, the ‘Stopwatch’ function is a joke now (at least on iPhone) - can’t even keep the time and changes it to a random amount! Very annoying!
  • Fix Daimoku chanting!

    By YL92627
    About a 1-2 months ago, the app stopped working - I could only chant Gongyo for 1 minute, then it would stop. I would have to restart each minute. Very annoying and unproductive. I have downloaded the latest version of the app, but it didn’t fix the problem.
  • Inauthentic

    By Ginger666
    Presents itself as FREE , but it is not. The chanting stops all the time. No prayers???? A better app is SGI-USA. FREE DOES THE SAME THING WORKS BETTER TOO
  • Nice ap

    By Ann Marie NYC
    I learned to chant Gongyo using this fun ap, and now I can say it faster than the chant speed. This is a good ap, but when I wanted to upgrade to seeing my graphs I could no longer find the option. Sent a note to ap support about 2 weeks ago but didn't hear back yet. Goals are a little vague and not tied in well. I like the links to other SGI websites and various quotes. Thank you!
  • Keeps Stopping Countdown

    By LuvMuzik11
    I unfortunately purchased this app so I could be able to: 1. Be able to countdown while the app is in the background and 2. To change the awful standard background to something that would make it much easier on the eyes. Well the 2nd part worked. For the past 2 days, the app has stopped my countdown the MOMENT I go to another app! What is this?! Developers, what's wrong with your app?!
  • Keeps you focused!

    This is one of my most productive apps. I highly recommend it.
