Lotus is a really beautifully designed meditation timer; it works exceedingly well.
A nice selection of sound choices(shakuhachi is quite lovely and mellowing) and the new option to add the custom sound of one's choice
is nifty(I've got six tibetan bowl .wav files to choose from).
I would nice if the developer would allow more than one custom sound file to be added to the list of selections.

You may want to reconsider the name; every time I see this show up I think it's something to do with Lotus Notes. A good case could be made for trademark infringement, if IBM was so inclined. Just FYI.

The developers don't know how to spell "exercise" correctly???
(incorrect spelling on their site too.)

The UK version seems to be exercise. I think it's just a cultural practice. For example, UK words that end in -our changed when brought to the US, and they now end in -or (e.g., colo[u]r, valo[u]r)




Actually, the -or etc. spellings that arrived in America were current in Britain at the time - it was the British English that frenchified their spellings later on :)

Moog is right, albeit said in an uncalled-for way. Jayrio is wrong despite his cheerful response, however.

"Excercise" is a misspelling in _any_ part of the English-speaking sphere, especially in the US, where the developer, Matt Reagan, hails from. (Oregon)

According to the prescriptive OED, "-xc" spelling was only used in Middle English when spelling was still in a great state of flux, e.g.,

I rase fra ded til lyf, fra ydelnes til excercise in godis seruys. (1340)
He may putte hem from excercise and occupacion of the Kinges service. (1432)

Since the 1500s, the "-xc" has always been spelled simply as "-x".

Sorry, it's indeed a typo. No getting around it.

prescriptive → descriptive
(I don't mind OED to prescribe any rules, but rather just describe usage trends very comprehensively.)

See, everyone makes typos. It's important to own up to 'em.  ;)

Goddarnit! Where's the Edit button on this thing‽

Works nicely for me. Unlike Meditation Timer it allows you to set three distinct sections for your overall meditation period or excercize routine. It also has a few more choices for timer sounds.
