      "So I love to meditate but it's also a practice I'm a bit new at and if you're new to meditating you may know that 5 minutes can feel like an hour, quieting your mind is harder than one might think but I love the benefits I'm getting from my meditation practices and I want to continue to improve, so I download the Timer app. The Timer app works like a stopwatch and I set it a bit longer so I can start to meditate longer and longer each day..."

      "I think this is an average solution for meditation resources because although it is a tool for meditation, it seems to be for someone who already has a meditation routine or knows a bit about meditation already. It is not for a novice or someone looking for different meditation methods or how to learn breathing techniques. Because it is a very specific tool, I rate it as an average solution to the problem."
