Countdown: The Big Timer & Clock

By BitBit Apps

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Replace the old sand timer in your favorite game with one that packs a punch! The countdown takes center stage in this app. A giant red timer flashes as it counts down the final seconds, then blasts an air horn to let everyone know that time is up!

Perfect for classrooms, debates, game shows, sporting events, or anywhere a highly visible timer is needed.

+ Beautiful design, maximizing countdown visibility
+ Tap anywhere to start or stop the countdown
+ Three modes - stopwatch, timer, or clock
+ Set a countdown up to 10 hours
+ Display the time in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple

Advanced features:
+ Optionally show tenths of a second during the last minute for extra excitement
+ Optionally flash during the last ten seconds
+ Optionally play an air horn or a chime sound when time is up (or you can turn off sounds)
+ Optionally show elapsed time after the timer reaches 0:00 (double-tap or long-press the Timer icon on the settings screen to choose)
+ The device will not sleep while the timer is running
+ Background notifications make sure you know when your timer ends
+ Double-tap the time on the settings screen to switch between 1, 5, and 15-second increments

Super-advanced features:
+ Control the timer remotely using a Bluetooth keyboard: The space bar starts/stops, escape resets, and you can change the countdown time by typing a number followed by enter.
+ Display the timer on an Apple TV using AirPlay mirroring, while keeping the controls visible only on your device!

Customer Reviews

Just what I wanted!

Totally worth the $2! Perfect for what I wanted. Easy to use, just enough choices to be really useful. Fills the whole screen with the countdown, you can choose from 5 colors, you can have the screen flash for the last 5 seconds or not, final sound can be an air horn or a perfectly non-obnoxious chime, or no sound. Resets with one button. Absolutely perfect to replace those silly games and timers that always get stuck and are easy to miss when they've run out.

I think it can also count up it be a clock too but that's not what I use it for so I didn't look into those features.


If you want a perfectly simple countdown timer that fills your sideways phone’s screen, is extremely easy to read, has a very clear font, great color selection, a perfectly audible non-obnoxious sound (I LOVE the Chime!!!), Has a very easy to use smart and simplistic interface, is perfectly easy to restart (without even leaving the timer screen)… THEN THIS IS FOR YOU!

This could not have served my need any better!

I am very glad that I bought it!


I use it work workouts because it's easily visible from far away. A customizable "countdown to start" feature would be nice so that I can have a 10 or 15 second window to get to my workout position before the clock starts.
