Chant Counter: creating an app to keep track

Problem

An important part of my spiritual practice is to chant a mantra on a string of beads (similar to a rosary). I chant through the string of beads a certain number of times each day, but when I started I did not have a convenient method of keeping track.

Other considerations

I used this app extensively for my own purposes, as I found it to be an elegant solution to my problem. However, if I were going to share this solution widely, I would consider making some changes to the user experience. It might not be immediately obvious that the number itself functions as the increment button. Also, some users might need the number to increment beyond 16.
