This is my go-to timer for most applications. It's quick to set. A nice extra is that it says what the time will be when it expires.
It does lack control to the second, and that explains my withholding the fifth star. Not good for a 3 1/2 minute egg, and I can't set it to tell me precisely how long I have to clock back in after my break that ends, for example, at 3:15:00, with 3:15:02 being counted as "late".
Of course other timer or alarm apps do those things, but pronto comes so close and is so quick and straightforward to use, that I keep wishing I could use it for all my timing needs.
I agree, this IS a great timer app!
Simple and seamlessly designed. When I use it as a nap timer, I appreciate how the alarm keeps ringing, without stopping, until I turn it off. No sleeping through the alarm!
Latest update adds significant improvements - moving this app into 6 Star territory IMO, i.e. better overall than most other timers and a "go to app" for the home page.
Elegant, reliable, 2 iDevices
GR8 app, and runs smooth w/ 2 weeks of use. I went and put it on my iPad mini, too. Could never find a timer like it that Steve Jobs would be proud of.
