iLab: Timer

By Negative Ninth

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Harnessing the simplicity found in physical laboratory timers, iLab: Timer brings accurate, simple, and easy timing to the iPhone.

Up to 10 independent timers can be set, timing simultaneously, and customizable depending upon your timing needs.

Each timer can:
- Count up continuously or count down from a set time
- Repeat (if desired) once or until cancelled
- Have an individual alert sound
- Disable the iPhone sleep / lock setting*
- Customized title

Due to the limitations of the iPhone, the iLab: Timer can only alert you when your timer is finished if iLab: Timer is actively running. However, if the iPhone is locked, off, or running another program and the alarm expires, iLab: Timer will alert you the next time you open the program that the timer not only expired, but how much time has elapsed since it finished.

iLab: Timer is perfect not only for laboratory timing needs, but has also a variety of other uses such as timing practice for speeches, timing tests, and exercise programs... your imagination is the limit!

*Using this setting will drain the iPhone battery at a faster than usual rate as it disables the sleep timer, causing the iPhone screen to remain on constantly until disabled.

Extremely buggy, worthless in labs

Unfortunately useless for my application. The 3 main settings do not act as expected. I needed a vibration every 60 seconds, unhampered by my human delays in pressing buttons. some of these issues are addressed in the list of bugs fixed but do not seem to have been fixed:
1. Alert setting works only if device is set to vibrate. That could have been done with the device setting alone then.
2. No matter how I set Timer Overrun, and Timer Delay, a delay is inserted between intervals, in one case until I answer, and in the other case for a few seconds until the alert is finished. I am using IOS 6.1.1 on Iphone 3gs. This would ruin my experiment.
3. The instructions explain these settings in extremely loose terms, not specifying which setting has which effect. Timer Overrun operates only when Timer Delay is on. Enabling screen dimming seems to have opposite effect. Automatically resetting this setting EVERYTIME a timing event occurs may be contrary to what the user needs.

Dreadful and impossible to shut off in iPhone 6. Don't waste your pennies on this one!

Dreadful period.
