Make ZenFriend Your Friend

The app is meant to feel like your friend - your ZenFriend to be exact. You can track your sessions by logging how often you meditate in one place and features a timer to help you. Go further and even make note of your thoughts after a session. The app is completely customizable and can be used by anyone thanks to its simplicity. You'll be able to pick which bells you want to use to start and end your meditation session, there are three sounds to choose from. The bells are soft so as not to disturb you and break your state of relaxation.
