VersaTimer is a simple, yet very powerful, timer app with some unique features that makes it different from other timer and stopwatch apps.
At the basic level, it works as a simple timer or stopwatch. In timer mode it can be set to play a sound when the timer reaches zero. You can also add an interval sound that will be played at a certain interval, like every minute. There are a selection of sounds to choose from, ranging from beep-sounds to fanfares. Instead of the sounds, the time that is left (or has passed) can be announced. In stopwatch mode you can also keep track of lap times (current, previous, fastest and slowest).
At the most complex level, up to five rules can be defined, and each rule can play a different sound (or announce the time left/passed) at different intervals. Using rules, you can “build” the timer functionality that you need. You can for example have a timer that plays a sound every minute, then a different sound every 15 seconds for the last minute, and finally count down the last seconds from ten to one. There is also a cycle option, so that you can set a shorter cycle within the standard timer cycle and the rules will then be applied on the shorter cycle and therefor repeat as long as the timer is running.
You can define as many different timers as you need, each one with up to five rules. Timers are assigned a name, making it easy to re-load the timer you need.
Other functions are the repeat mode, where the timer will repeat the timer once it reaches zero, and the “shake to start/stop” option, where the timer can be started or stopped by shaking your device – could be convenient when your hands are busy with other things.
VersaTimer works very well as a game timer - you can for example use it in Diplomacy tournaments, where each player has a limited amount of time for each move and needs to be reminded that his or her time soon will be up.
It's is also the ideal sports timer for sport events, for example when you need to release a runner every minute, with audible signals the last ten seconds of every minute.
The display uses big easy-to-read digits, and if you rotate the device to landscape mode the digits are even bigger and could easily be used on an iPad in a public event (fully supports the new iPad).
Note! The timer will not operate when the device is "sleeping" or if you jump to another app when the timer is running. It WILL keep track of the time, but no alerts or announcements will be made in the background.
