'The BNI Timer' is simple to use:
- 1: Choose how long you want the timer to run using a swipe gesture, the selected time will be highlighted in the top black bar,
- 2: Press 'Start'. Once the timer reaches zero, you will hear a bell indicating the time has expired (ensure your device is not muted).
- 3: At any time you can stop, reset or resume the timer.
The bell can be sounded at any time using the bell button in the bottom right corner of the screen (ensure your device is not muted).
A custom time can be set using the settings button. To adjust the time place your finger on the stop watch and drag in a clockwise/anti clockwise direction to increase/decrease the time.
Minor bug fixes to the UI
Ratings and Reviews
Good but not great. Need to be able to use the bell while the phone is on silent the way you can with an alarm. I likely will not use the app until this is updated because I can't have my phone off of silent during the meeting and the only reason I wanted it was so that the ding would happen automatically.
Great for what it is. Could improve
For those who say the iPod/iPhone app is sufficient, this fills a real niche on the iPad, which does not have a baked in clock app. Great as a BNI timer, very decent job.
This could be GREAT all around app that puts the BNI logo in front of people on a constant basis if the following was added:
Multitasking. The app does not count time when its not in the foreground. This is a standard feature for ios5.
Multiple rings, including one that doesn't go off until the user interacts.
These features would make the app much more robust and useful.
First, use the iPhone timer if for any reason it's because the iPhone has more alarm sound options and it's louder. And second, rather than have made a timer, you should have made a referral app that can be emailed or sent via mms. (see BNI merseyside app)
We tried this timer but the iPhone one works better!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
