Ratings and Reviews
I wanted this for my iPad because the howler for the Mac is so good. Unfortunately this app has only a small proportion of the great features on the Mac and in-app purchases only remove adds, they don't add the enhanced features. Also, longer term it would be great to have a timer that works across devices, so that if I walk away from my desk, I still get the alarm on my phone. Also when in another app it doesn't alarm, just scents a notification which is easy to miss.
UPDATED Ok slight update, I'm not sure that I understand why, but if the mute button is unselected on the iPad the sound comes out both when the timer has focus and when other apps are in use
