With the release of the Vipassana App, and in keeping with the spirit of the late SN Goenka to offer free services that helps others, I have made the code for these apps open source to the public (except for the audio files).
Why is this helpful? It allows anyone to pull down a copy of my code, make a few changes to it, add your own images and audio, then create your own meditation apps! It requires a little bit of technical knowledge to create a basic iOS and/or Android app, but most of the actual work of the app itself is already done for you. This is the actual code used by my production Vipassana apps!
Last month, I made the Binaural apps FREE for both iOS and android. I've now taken it a step further and made the algorithms open source. You can now go to my github page and download fully working sample apps that generate binaural beats and isochronic pulses. Then, you can use these algorithms in your own apps. If you end up using any of this code, give ma shout, and maybe I'll feature your app on this blog!
Even though software development can be a great meditation, I thought a technical description of the code would go too deep for a meditation blog, so instead, I'm posting that detail on my personal blog, which you can find here.
Here's the source code for iOS.
Here's the source code for Android.
Or you can just download the app here and not worry how it works!
Binaural was my first app created for both Android and iOS. It has been for sale for 99 cents for the last year. Well, after making a brand new update to the iOS version of the app this week to allow a custom volume control, I've decided to go ahead and give this app away for free!
You can feel free to use the binaural app for iOS or android to create your own guided meditations. After all, the world needs more meditation! These apps will allow you to generate your own binaural beats, as well as learn about the concepts of brainwave entrainment, brain frequencies, and binaural beats technology.
Happy Holidays! I hope you enjoy the gifts! If you've already purchased this app in the past, thank you for your support to help me cover the costs of enrolling in the apple & android developer programs. They are not free!
Binaural for iOS can be found at the Apple App Store
Binaural for Android can be found a the Google Play store
I just did a recent interview with Jennifer Hammond on her XM radio show on real estate. We discussed how metaphysical processes such as intention, meditation, crystal programming, feng shui, shamanic ceremonies, and other methods can help you buy or sell your next home!

Someone out there owns the url meditation.com. Instead of hoarding it to themselves for only their specific products and services, they have opened it up so that people like me can create practitioner accounts and make guest blog posts. That's the spirit of cooperation and abundance that we all preach as yoga and meditation practitioners. In that spirit, I have written a guest blog post on the topic!
