A Simple Fun Timer, designed for teachers or anyone else who needs to set timed tasks for groups of children in a classroom or similar environment.

The engaging graphics and sound effects mean tasks get completed in a fun and efficient way.
The teacher sets the target amount of time for the class to perform a particular task. The countdown timer is then started. The timer can be viewed from the Apple device itself or displayed on a larger format device such as an interactive board or TV screen using screen mirroring features of the Apple Devices.

If the class completes the task in the defined time limit the teacher can tap the "tick" button and the "Well Done" screen is displayed and a fanfare sound effect is played. However, if the class run out of time the Alarm rings on the clock, the clock bounces around the screen and then explodes in a comic fashion.

This app really encourages students to complete any assigned task, the students can see graphically how much time they have left to complete the task.

The teacher is able to pause, restart and reset the timer at any time. The app has an audible "ticking" sound when the timer is running, the teacher can enable and disable this by simply tapping the speaker button on the apps main screen. The Fanfare and Explosion sound effects can be controlled via the audio controls on the Apple device.

This is a simple but fun and engaging app to assist the teacher in their classroom management activities.

Users are able to send feedback, make enhancement requests or report any issues from inside the app.

Drains battery


I like this in class. It really keeps us on track however it runs the battery out just I've half way through class. I set it each hour to help us quickly see how much time we have left. That works great then we have no iPad for the rest of the day. I'm not sure why it drains so fast with only this app. Fix the drain and the it will have more stars from my class.

Avoid like a dying plague rat!

First, let me say that this app does what it's supposed to do with a minimum of fuss. I like the clean, simple interface, and using it is intuitive. What I don't like is being bombarded with ads for candy crush every time I log in or go to change a setting. That's what makes this app worthless - if you tell kids that they can't play games, what will they think when they see candy crush pop up every two minutes on YOUR device?

Annoying Ads


The timer works fine and the students like the bomb going off which is why I gave it 2 stars. However, the constant ads popping up while I am using it, is really annoying. Plus, it drains my battery if I use it periodically throughout my day. Definitely could use some improvements on the next update.
