Traditionally, people buy small counting device to help them keep track of the number of Amitabha chant that they will chant everyday.  The old device does not have function like keeping track of the cumulative count and setting a Target count. 

This nice little Iphone application actually replaces the need to carry this counting device and is a wonderful tool for Buddhist to practice their Amitabha chanting everyday.  As a Pureland (净土)practitioner, you can give your full focus and attention to the word 阿弥陀佛 and do not need to worry about how many times you have chanted.  You can also be assured that once you have reached your target count, there will be an alarm to alert you that you have reached the target count.  You can also set the interval alarm to help inform you of your progress so far.
Now you can do your chanting everywhere and every time, whenever you want, and still be able to keep track of the number of count that you have chanted.  Quickly get hold of this application and start your daily chanting practice!

大方广佛华严经 - HuaYanJing Iphone Application version 1.0

The Avatamsaka Sutra (Sanskrit; Chinese: 华严经; pinyin: Huáyán Jīng) is one of the most influential Mahayana Sutras of East Asian Buddhism. The title is rendered in English as Flower Garland Sutra, Flower Adornment Sutra, or Flower Ornament Scripture. An extant Sanskrit manuscript has the longer name Mahāvaipulya Buddhāvataṃsaka Sūtra.
The Avatamsaka Sutra describes a cosmos of infinite realms upon realms, mutually containing one other. The vision expressed in this work was the foundation for the creation of the Huayan school of Chinese Buddhism, which was characterized by a philosophy of interpenetration. Huayan is known as Kegon in Japan.
The last chapter of the Avatamsaka  also circulates as a separate text known as the Gandavyuha Sutra. The Gandavyuha Sutra details the journey of the youth Sudhana, who undertakes a pilgrimage at the behest of the bodhisattva Manjusri. Sudhana will converse with 52 masters in his quest for enlightenment. The antepenultimate master of Sudhana's pilgrimage is Maitreya. It is here that Sudhana encounters The Tower of Maitreya, which along with Indra's net is one of the most startling metaphors for the infinite to emerge in the history of literature across cultures.
In the middle of the great tower... he saw the billion-world universe... and everywhere there was Sudhana at his feet... Thus Sudhana saw Maitreya's practices of... transcendence over countless eons (kalpa), from each of the squares of the check board wall... In the same way Sudhana... saw the whole supernal manifestation, was perfectly aware it, understood it, contemplated it, used it as a means, beheld it, and saw himself there.
The penultimate master that Sudhana visits is the Manjusri Bodhisattva, the bodhisattva of great wisdom. Thus, one of the grandest of pilgrimages approaches its conclusion by revisiting where it began. The Gandavyhua suggests that with a subtle shift of perspective we may come to see that the enlightenment that the pilgrim so fervently sought was not only with him at every stage of his journey, but before it began as well—that enlightenment is not something to be gained, but "something" the pilgrim never departed from. The final master that Sudhana visits is Samantabhadra Bodhisattva, who teaches him that wisdom only exists for the sake of putting it into practice; that it is only good insofar as it benefits all living beings.
