Customer Reviews

Almost perfect

The UI is perfect. Easy, and more importantly, QUICK to use - the only problem is it won't alert you if running in the background. I wouldn't mind to be able to select from other tones or at least crank the volume up a bit. I can't always hear it over my music.

Also the music did NOT fade when the alarms sounded. If it did, that might nullify my need for a louder or different alarm. The tones themselves are fine I just can't hear them over Pandora every time.

Note: I normally work out with Pandora playing, and switch between a timer and FitList or Runkeeper to record my workout.

Great app, wish it worked in background

I want to say that the app is fantastic. It's beautifully designed and works exactly as you would expect it to. The only flaw, which I feel to be a big one, is that the app does not alert you when it isn't on screen. If the screen is off, or if the focus is on another app, the clock will continue to run but it will not alert you when it's time to change. Allowing the app to make alerts while in the background would make this a five-star app.

Great app

Works superbly with music and running apps. It will work in the back or foreground with two different chimes for rest and work. One hope and wish is that they will add a distance recorder so that you only need one app to run 5k's-marathons.
Very simple interface, pull down on work time to increase the time limit. Followed by the rest and how many times to repeat.

Highly recommend.
