Looking for a meditation app where I can set an arbitrary time to meditate with a pleasant bell sound to end and without excessive permissions.

Ideally no:

  • In app purchases
  • Photos/Media/Files
  • Device ID/call info
  • run at a startup
  • 1
    I didn't investigate Meditation apps (yet), so I've got no list ready for that. While waiting for answers, you could do some research on your own: Get yourself Galen's StripSearch app installed, and use it to search for "Meditation" and a corresponding permission-filter set. This app is exactly for issues like yours: finding an app for specific tasks with minimal permissions. You can setup your own permission definitions, or use one of the pre-defined sets. Good luck – also with answers here!

Have you tried Meditation Timer? Seems to be minimalistic and neat:

  • can set time for meditation,
  • I found the bell sound to be rather nice,
  • no in app purchases (from what I've seen),
  • required permissions: change your audio settings and set an alarm,
  • not sure whether runs at startup or not though.

Maybe worth a look.
