awful, no other way to put it.
i would give it zero stars if possible. the one star comes from the numbers blanking out while scrolling to the number of minutes or seconds you want to count down from. it can take up to 30 seconds for the numbers to reappear. if the wrong number was entered (because the screen went blank) it takes another 30 sec or so to see if your attempt to correct it has worked. it took 4 minutes to get the timer set for 5 minutes. a total waste of time.
Needed for my autistic son
My son has difficulties with waiting so I purchased this app thinking the visual time would be great, it works good, the problem is the least you can set each color block is for 1 min, he is 2 years old so 3 mins is the total wait time that is the least we can do and is very hard to accomplish, would like to see seconds or to not use all 3 color blocks, the price is very expensive for a time that just counts down but I will pay for what my son needs because he has autism but at the same time I feel you kind of are exploiting parents needs for their children and upping the price for such a simple app....
My non-verbal son is now 14 and I would like to use this for timeouts. The time increments need to use seconds, 3 minute intervals when dealing with the neurodevelopmentally disabled is too long. I would find it more practical if the color blocks started red and finished green since green means go pretty much everywhere. It isn't necessary for us parents to pay $3 for a timer our iPhone already has, but the visual reference is the only nice feature this could enhance the purpose of if done properly. A little research next time before cashing in on our misery.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
