For this meditation timer, my goal was to inspire an emotional attachment in the user and maintain a mindset conducive to meditation.
The timer is set without typing in any numbers. Instead, the user sets the time by drawing a circle. The app gently, and almost imperceptibly, ripples, pulses, and breathes.
One innovation was that the user toggles between hr/min and min/sec using the pinch/expand gesture. The min/sec circle of time resides within the hr/min circle of time.
This project suits my principle of having an app do one thing very well. It was interesting to solve the problem of setting a timer from 1sec to 5hrs without typing in any numbers.
