MindBell rings periodically during the day as a mindfulness bell, to give you the opportunity to hold on for a moment and consider what you are currently doing, and in what state of mind you are while you are doing it. According to the Zen Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh, this is an effective means of developing mindfulness.

Though hopefully fixed in the version 2.5.9 there might be rare situations where MindBell leaves the alarm volume set to the max. To avoid a rude awakening please check alarm volume before going to sleep.
In case of problems with MindBell please send an e-mail. This allows queries and eases communication.
READ_PHONE_STATE (read phone status and identity): To modify the bell in the notification bar when phone status changes (phone call, flight mode, muted), if requested in the settings.

RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED (run at startup): To activate MindBell after restarting the phone.
VIBRATE (control vibration): To use vibration as mindfulness bell, if requested in the settings.
MindBell does not need any network access.
