This app is a simple voice timer. It can announce remaining time during music playing and in background which use a local notification. It is useful when you cannot see your iPhone.
Vocal sound has four types, English male and female, Japanese male and female. Other information is written on “App Information” in the app. If you want to use Alarm Mode and you have iPhone 4S or earlier, please swipe to left/right on the spinning wheel.
Default announcements are 10 second countdown, 30 seconds left, 1 minute left, 3, 5, 10, 30 minutes left and 1 hour left. Over 1 hour left, the app announces remaining time at 30-minute interval.

Ratings and Reviews
Great App! Just needs more options and Instructions.
This app works great for me, exactly like I wanted it to. But it just needs a few more options, like a 20, 30, or 60 second countdown would be nice (though I suppose the voice would have to be sped up to the saying of the number within one second). I gave it four out of five stars due to the lack of ANY clear instructions on how to create your own custom timer announcement sets. The Edit, + (Plus), and Magnifying Glass buttons are not intuitive at all. I figured it out eventually, but I’m a pro user, I can’t imaging non-pro users like my mother figuring out how to create a timer to speak every minute when 30 minutes are left. Good luck in making it easier.

Thank you for waiting. Please use version 2.7. However, 20 and 60 second countdown have not been added.
If I’m playing music it turns down the music a little bit but is hard to hear over a speaker. When wearing headphones I can hear it better. Would be great if I had the option to either control the volume of music (turn music way down during the countdown) or have the music pause during the countdown.
Doesnt Have a Sound
No voice countdown, which is the only purpose of the app...
