Love it - **Edited**
I Love this app. So much that I'm giving it 5 stars. Very easy to set up long, multi-cycled workouts, and I can see at a glance where I'm at in a set. I think the color bundle was worth the Buck spent on it too. I get to invert the text colors, etc, or set other schemes for, (for example) the 7th & last set of a Tabata-style exercise for a motivational factor. I took literally, 2 minutes to write / save a session consisting of:
5 rounds of Tabata workout. After each of the 5 rounds I set 30 seconds each for a Turkish Get-up left, then right, then 2 minutes "active rest". I got to running on there, but that's just 1 example of what's possible with just a short time with this tool.
Love the app, but prefer the old version
I love this app. The timer is great, the color choices to differentiate the times, the buzzer choices and the ability to play music are all great. I do not however like the new update. I liked knowing what was completely by next. I used to put my choreography in the timers and would know what the next activity was while doing the previous activity. Now I have to wait a few seconds to read the activity or put what is coming up next on the current activity. (I hope that makes sense) Please bring back the option to see what is coming next.
I did the in app purchase to get rid of the adds but they are still there 😠 I agree with most of the reviews I saw, I like the older version better. What I like least of all is that after the timer is done a prompt shows up to post if to face book, then you have to exit out, click the timer, then click start again. With the old version once the timer was done you could click "go" again & be done. I use this mostly for rest between sets at the gym.
