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.

Convenient, quick

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.

One Complaint

I have tried a lot of timer apps, and I like this one a lot. I particularly like the fact that setting the time involves moving the hand on a clock. Fast and intuitive.
My one complaint is that the time only goes off ONCE. If I am busy, and do not hear it, it does NOT ring again. I would like a setting where I can ask for it to keep going off until I hit a button. Like other timers.
