Shortest timer is 1 minute

Two problems with the simple timer. First, I can't make a 30 second timer or any timer below a minute. Even if I set the seconds first, say at 55 seconds, I can't then change the minute setting to zero.
If it were possible to do this, then the other problem would be: the change of seconds is too close to Recent. Trying to slide the seconds bar gets too often interrupted by accidentally sliding over Recents, and then you have to try it again. The wheel would be easier, especially with the limitation that seconds are in 5 second increments.

One final thing: the sounds offered are fairly obnoxious. Nothing simple and pleasant in case you want a sound that doesn't attract a lot of attention. I don't mind the sounds offered but I'd like the options of simple sounds. Most of them are musical and one in particular takes a second or more to even begin. For a timer app that has essentially one function it fails at several things.

I’ve use quite a several timer apps, but...

This timer app is VERY easy to use, and the screen is not obnoxious. I work where there are scheduled 15 minute breaks, and this as become the only timer I use for that purpose. I am farsighted, but with this display, I can take my glasses off and still see the “countdown”. This makes my breaks that much gratifying as it literally takes pressure off my head.

No sub-minute timing? No way!

Pronto is awesome. It's clean, it's quick and easy to set and use, and it's got great options for the alert. I also love the easy way it resets and let's you use different recent intervals. In fact, it has everything going exactly right. It's probably the single best timer app I've used.

...except for one critical thing that will keep it forever off of my phone: the minimum time is one minute. Another (much smaller) issue is that it has no stopwatch.

I do a lot of networking and presentations. In many groups you get 30-45 secs to talk. Not only does this mean that Pronto can't be used for the meeting, but it really can't be used to practice, either. (How long was my talk? Subtract from the original time, carry the one, and... Shoot. What was the next digit?)

Can it time my kids' time outs? Longer times? The boiling pot on the stove? Sure! ...but the sub-minute timer is what I need more than anything, and without that I just can't justify it on my phone.
