Best Countdown

By Smartphoneware

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Ultramodern countdown timer with futuristic design and demonstrative functionality.

You can set countdown or countup timer for as long as 100 hours or as little as a couple of minutes. It's an excellent visual time indicator for your activities.

Timer visualizes time to kids and lets them feel the time. Without reading or even knowing the numbers one can look at the visualized time flow, feel it and understand how long to wait or whether to hurry up.

It lets you set the alarm sound that will play when the timer is finished. You can choose from 16 unique alarm sounds, melodies and loops. You’ll be notified when your time is up even if you’re using another app or your device is locked. It can also repeat the sound alarm (up to 3 times) at the given interval if it was missed/snoozed.

You can easily change the timer color to fit your personal lifestyle. There are 5 color themes: turquoise, red, green, amber and pink. Just pick the one you like in the application settings.

Timer works both on your iPhone/iPod and iPad, contains HD graphics for retina and iPad displays and supports all screen orientations for all devices. [+Retina graphics for iPad 3rd generation]

Customer Reviews

Love this App!

As an 8th grade student, I enjoy using this app to see how much time I have until the end of the day or week! The interface is simple, the tones are nice, and most importantly, this App is so useful!

P.S. if you're having trouble hearing the sound, go to your settings app, tap Notifications, then tap Best Countdown, and you know what to do from there. Now you don't need to rate this app so poorly.

Simply works

Simple timer app. Works well. Several color themes, many choices of the alarm sound.

Suggested fixes: Move the start/stop and reset further apart.

Also should use an app setting for volume, instead of the phone volume.

Suggested improvement:
I would make the colored circle the start/stop (ie very big), the center the reset, and put an edit button (to change the timer setting) in a corner.

Completely customizable

I am an Occupational Therapist an use this when I am working with my kids. I love the soft alarm sounds that are fun and not harsh sounding. I like that I can set the colors to be more alerting or calming. This timer also lets you set the seconds, as well as mins and hours (not that I need that many hours!). Love it!! Am going to be using this one a lot.
