Childrens Countdown Timer
By Fehners Software LLP
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Is it a battle to get your child to do something quickly?
This visual countdown App was designed for my 2 year old son to help him get his reward chart star for getting dressed quickly.
Getting him dressed used to take forever with many stalling strategies being deployed. Now he runs upstairs asking for the "Countdown".
Watch as the timer runs from green to amber to red, helping the child understand that time is running out.
A fun picture is slowly revealed as the time runs down and when the time is up the child is rewarded with an exciting sound and the picture spins.
Background image changes to match the time of day, so that your child is given subtle hints as to what time of day the task they are being asked relates to.
Choose your own image to reveal from your iPhones photo library to really surprise your child.
Endless possible uses:
* Getting dressed
* Getting out the door (shoes and coats on)
* Brushing teeth
* Sharing toys
Turns daily struggles into fun time!
What's New in Version 3.0.2
+ Corrected issue with Ads still displaying after purchasing the "Premium Bundle". Sorry :(
+ New Pause & Resume buttons - giving you more control.
+ New Sneaky Pause button - allows you to give your child an extra bit of time without your child realising.
+ New Skip Forward and Skip Back buttons - you can now use the skip buttons to add or subtract time whilst the timer is running.
+ Three brand new picture & sound packs - Ocean, Transport, and Animals which each come with their own themed confetti when the timer finishes.
+ You can now select your own sounds when choosing custom pictures.
+ Larger timer for iPads and the bigger iPhones - now fills most of the screen.
If you like Children's Countdown and appreciate this update, please consider leaving us a review in the App Store, it makes a huge difference to this husband and wife team.
Thank you so much

Upgraded to “Ad-Free”, but...
We just started using this timer to motivate our 4 year old to complete necessary tasks in a reasonable amount of time. So far she loves it! That’s why I paid up for more pictures and what I thought would be an end to ads after each timer session. Ads still appear, so perhaps I was mistaken?
Edit: The app developer contacted me right away to discuss the problem. They discovered a bug and fixed it with an update. No more ads!
Custom picture loads rotated 90 degrees to left
Custom picture loads rotated 90 degrees to left, although it doesn't look like it when you first select it. If you return to Custom picture, you will immediately see the incorrect rotation. Also, why must there be two "10" circles on the display, which are not actually buttons (although they look like they might be)?
I have only had it for 24 h but so far, great. It allows my three year old know when time is almost up without me being a pain by reminding the time left.
I was actually looking for something similar. I was even going to buy a color coded clock, but this works better, and we can have it in all devices.
I have a suggestion for improvement: enable “profiles” and save activities, with pre selected times, noises and pictures
1. Bath, 20 min, picture of the ducky
2. Dinner, 30 min, picture of my child eating
3. Get dressed, 5 min, another picture
Other than that, great!!
