My favourite review of the week was on Amazon for the often over-looked Dive Into Silence:
Exactly what I need
This is so easy. When the app opens you see the settings page. If you don’t want to make any changes you click “Save” and go on to the session page.. The settings include length of sitting and what sound to end, If you want interval sounds, you select how long an interval and what sound. You can also set a delay of 30 seconds up to a few minutes before the start bell is sounded. That way you can press “Start” and have enough time to settle into your position. I have not used that feature as I keep the tablet in front of me.
In the settings you can elect to have notification sounds disabled. No beeping for a phone call, an email or a post on Facebook!
It also has a white noise option. I have not used that feature either.
You can have music playing on a separate app and use this app.
The bells are bell chime, Tibetan bell, Tibetan gong, and Tibetan bowl. The bowl sound lingers nicely.

Thank you very much, A. B. King. I’m really glad you like it. This was one of my favourite apps when we created it. I use it all the time. We released it late last year, but it feels like years ago.
