Any timers you create will be also be available as a preset that you can select at the push of a button.

What's New in Version 1.2
Recommended by CNET - disappointment
I downloaded app after it was named #1 on top5 CNET podcast. Tried to use conversions to teach my kindergartener about measures. They are way too imprecise - couldnt set numeric value only dials. The biggest issue is EVERY 5 sec a popup to buy or review or something. Well here is my review. I am deleting after I finish this.
This app has nice features. However I can't figure out how to turn off the annoying sounds. Can't find an in-app menu to do so and can't so so through phone settings. I will have to delete if I can't turn off the sounds. :(
Downloaded it and deleted it immediately when I went to set a timer.
If and when you guys add an alarm that doesn't sound like Tinkerbell is having a seizure in my pocket I'll re-install.
Can't be walking around a pro kitchen with that emanating from my pants.
