Childrens Countdown Timer
By Fehners Software LLP
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Is it a battle to get your child to do something quickly?
This visual countdown App was designed for my 2 year old son to help him get his reward chart star for getting dressed quickly.
Getting him dressed used to take forever with many stalling strategies being deployed. Now he runs upstairs asking for the "Countdown".
Watch as the timer runs from green to amber to red, helping the child understand that time is running out.
A fun picture is slowly revealed as the time runs down and when the time is up the child is rewarded with an exciting sound and the picture spins.
Background image changes to match the time of day, so that your child is given subtle hints as to what time of day the task they are being asked relates to.
Choose your own image to reveal from your iPhones photo library to really surprise your child.
Endless possible uses:
* Getting dressed
* Getting out the door (shoes and coats on)
* Brushing teeth
* Sharing toys
Turns daily struggles into fun time!
What's New in Version 3.0.2
+ Corrected issue with Ads still displaying after purchasing the "Premium Bundle". Sorry :(
+ New Pause & Resume buttons - giving you more control.
+ New Sneaky Pause button - allows you to give your child an extra bit of time without your child realising.
+ New Skip Forward and Skip Back buttons - you can now use the skip buttons to add or subtract time whilst the timer is running.
+ Three brand new picture & sound packs - Ocean, Transport, and Animals which each come with their own themed confetti when the timer finishes.

+ Larger timer for iPads and the bigger iPhones - now fills most of the screen.
If you like Children's Countdown and appreciate this update, please consider leaving us a review in the App Store, it makes a huge difference to this husband and wife team.

Fun productivity time management app
I'm not a kid, but I love this app. I lose track of time when in the "flow" state at work. I get too absorbed in my task rather than distracted. This app is fun and helps me keep track of chunks of time e.g. 20mins, or any chunk you want to set. I like that it shows a reducing pie chart of time as you progress thru the time chunk you've set and are working against. I like that the pie slowly changes from green to red. I like that it ticks. I like the fun exploding image effect once the timer is up. So much better than the dreary timer apps in the productivity app category.
Some small tweaks and could be perfect
My little boy loves this just for fun and I’ve also used it in a professional capacity for helping young children on ABA programs transition to next tasks with great success. Unfortunately the in app purchases don’t work so I can’t get the (much desired by my boy) transport pack. Would be amazing if could add own pictures to reveal too - please please consider this for future update!!
