So close

I have tried several and this one almost had it all.
HEY DEVELOPERS read these reviews! The app need to run in the background!!!! Secondly, I love that it integrates with my music, but once again read the reviews I need my music volume to come back to my listening level. Every other app i.e. Waze will speak and then return the music to the proper level. And an added wish is to have the ability to set prompts in the middle or nearer the end instead of just the 3 seconds at the end. For example 30 seconds remaining or 10 seconds remaining and the countdown from 3 or 5.
Again DEVELOPERS Please read the reviews you are so close to a $5 or $10 app!!!

Works Sometimes

When this app is working properly, it's simple and good. However, I have the following issues with it.

The timer has to be in the foreground or else it just stops. I don't know why this is the case. It needs to have the functionality to be able to run in the background or while the screen is locked.

Secondly, for some reason the app randomly stops playing music. A song will end, and the next song just won't ever start. Unfortunately, there's no way to restart your music without stopping the timer and beginning the sequence again from the beginning. Since this always happens in the middle of the work out, that's quite annoying.

To compensate, I found I can start playing my music with another app, but this app mutes the music to a much lower level. If I turn it up so that the music is at a comfortable level, when this app gives me my next cue it blasts my ears at a much higher volume.

For these reasons, I'm searching for an alternative app.

Glitchy but good concept

The timer app lets you set your workout time, rest time and playlist. The count down is okay, but sometimes confusing unless you turn off some of the sparking. The biggest problem I see is that sometimes it will just stop playing the music and your stuck finishing out your set without tunes unless you stop your set and start over. Lastly, I found it mildly annoying that when it is playing there is no way to skip to a different song.
