Inquiry Timer is designed to support inquiry exercises in the Ridhwan School. Start a timer with one tap for repeating questions, monologues, and monologues with feedback. Set your own time interval for meditation and a custom timer. Choose from three sounds: a small bell, a robin, or a whippoorwill.
Inquiry Timer requires iOS 6.0 or later. If you don't see it in the App Store, you may have an earlier version of iOS. It will also run on iPad, but not full screen. This is the very first version, so I'm very interested in your suggestions for how to make it better.
The screen will stay on while the timer is running. If you want to turn off the screen so you don't see how much time is left, press the sleep/wake button (power button).
The volume of the timer sound is controlled by the volume buttons. If that doesn't seem to be working, you have probably disabled the volume buttons for the ringer. To enable the volume buttons, go to Settings > Sounds > Ringer and Alerts and set Change with Buttons to ON.
If the mute switch is on, you will not hear the timer sound. You may want the iPhone to just vibrate instead of playing a sound. In that case, go to Settings > Sounds > Vibrate and set Vibrate on Silent to ON, and then set the mute switch.
The sound will be loud if you turn off the screen while the timer is running, no matter what level you set the volume to. This is an iOS limitation. If it's a problem for you, let me know, and I will keep trying to find a way to work around it.
