FunTime was born in a couple of tweets.
Laura (@p0nja), Juancho's mom, tweeted "I have an idea for an app to helps childs with GDD and autism handle time" (or something like that) and then another tweet by our team (@codigodelsur) "Ok, we like the idea, count on us" (or something like that), so in 5 minutes we had a project.
This first version of FunTime is the result of the first passionate 3 weeks of work, as dreamers we are, we hope it really helps thousand of kids all over the world to manage time in a better way, but just by helping one will be good enough for us to let us go to bed happy.
Update version to iOS 10

I have only used it a few times but I really love it. Helps me focus and understand time better. Thumbs up 👍
Great, w/2 limitations
I work with children with Autism and this timer is great for them. They like the scene and easily understand at least one of the two visuals. I only have two minor complaints. One, there is no option to have the app keep the screen on. I work with one child that gets upset every time my iPad goes into sleep mode and he/she can no longer see the timer. Two, the noises of the birds can be distracting and I wish I could turn those off without turning the the overall volume off.
Maybe TOO cute
This is a wonderful app, and the fact that it's free, that it has both a circular and linear visual timer, and that the timer ends with applause (keeping things positive) are super. However, for little people who need to focus on a task, it's maybe a little too entertaining, even with the bird sounds off. If there were a simpler version of this app with no leaves falling, flowers blooming, or birds moving around, it would be a perfect match for distractible little learners.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
