Brain Wave Zen Meditation
3 Advanced Binaural Zen Meditation Programs combined with Soothing Ambient Nature Sounds to create the Ultimate Zen Meditation Experience. Sophisticated sequences of binaural tones synchronize the listeners brainwaves with low frequency theta waves associated with deep meditation.
*** The Science Behind Zen Meditation ***
Zen Meditation’s advanced brainwave programs are specifically designed for each meditation duration. The application makes use of Brainwave Entrainment techniques that utilize Binaural Brainwave Frequencies to induce a meditative state of mind in the user.
Note that head/earphones are required for this technique to be effective.
With this technique two different audible frequencies are played into each ear, with a soothing ambient background. When your brain processes these frequencies it perceives the difference between the two, which is the lower, inaudible brainwave frequency. Your brainwave frequencies then match this frequency through the process of Brainwave Entrainment.

World Factbook Visual Edition
The World Factbook Visual Edition has information on the people, society, government, economy, geography, communications, transportation, military, and transnational issues for 267 world entities.
GeekDad.com: “It’s different from other similar apps in that it really helps users visualize the data, and doesn’t just display tables of numbers. It is a wonderful way to learn about the countries of the world in a very visual way. Numbers have a harder time conveying their impact, but the maps, graphs, and colors in this app demonstrate them perfectly.”
The app has browsing, search, graphs, and map sections. In the browse section the user can select countries by tapping maps, or by selecting from a list. The user can also search for countries in the search section. In the graphs section dozens of data comparisons are presented as visual graphs or beautiful colored world maps. The maps sections has a collection of maps.
The app is based on the World Factbook data prepared by the Central Intelligence Agency. This app presents this public domain data in a more visual way that is more convenient to use on an iPad and makes it more accessible to adults and kids by presenting all data as graphs that are unique to this app.
