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!
+ Fixed a bug where the ticking noise would not play after pausing and resuming the timer
+ We've added a great new Mask Maker. Add fun masks to your pictures for a suprising and unique end to the Countdown Timer! Preview these great new Masks from the Settings screen.
+ You can now create as many Custom pictures as you wish
+ As the timer gets closer to the end the ticking noise subtly changes pitch for an audio clue as to the time running out.
Ratings and Reviews
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.
Great for my preschooler to understand time a bit better
We use it to get her dressed quickly (gives her something to focus on) and when we’re sharing toys or giving warnings about “how long before we have to go” at play dates. She understands green means she’s got a while and red means it’s almost over. Great that you can change the picture revealed for variety too
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. Would be awesome if could personalise more than one photo and select a few for random reveal rather than all of them - please consider this for future update!!
