"This seems like an amazing piece of software. Has the ability to edit round times, rest times, high intensity and low intensity sessions. It's exactly what I have been looking for, I can use it for running, free weights, mma, boxing or any type of interval training. Even CROSSFIT."

- Description -

The Interval Timer was the first interval timer available in the AppStore and, as a result, the most refined. Don't be fooled by knock-offs (other developers copying our interface and layout)!

The Interval Timer is a fully functional interval training timer. It is now compatible with both iOS 3 and 4.

It allows you to specify an overall workout time as well as a Low/High intensity interval and rest time between sets. During the set, it will alternate between the high and low intensity intervals helping to increase stamina. This is perfect for cycling, running, lifting weights, exercise, workout, stretching, boxing, MMA, martial arts, circuit training, Crossfit, HIIT / HIT, etc.

IntervalTimer will run in the background, even if you switch to another App. It will also continue to run when the screen is locked.

The sound themes let you tailor the sounds to your desired activity. Don't like any of the preinstalled sounds? Don't worry! You can record your own sounds.

Asymmetrical intervals are easy to set up so it is easy to workout with Tabata intervals ("High Intensity" = work, "Low Intensity" = rest). You can set the intervals to the same duration for symmetrical intervals.

Working out to music is not a problem. Start you music playing in the iPod app, then start IntervalTimer. The sounds will play over top of your music without interrupting it.

If you have any request for a new sound theme or feature, or have problems with this App, please email We listen.

After all the research...

Yes indeed! I finally found the interval timer app that is the best, and it works under fire! Wether your Ipod is off or you're on another app, the timer still runs in the background like real time. It took me awhile to figure out low and high intervals, but I so get it now. Your high interval could be your actual work out while your low interval could be your resting time. I like to think of the low interval as moving on to the next weight work out apparatus. And I figured out that rest means end of the number of sets. Or you can make rest your interval if you set the high or low interval to zero!

I'm rambling on because this is truly a great app that I tested. I should be ok at the gym tomorrow and onward.

Silly users

I've had this app since it was created and I've never had an issue with it. Always opens and runs flawlessly. I wish it could set up different timers between "sets" but that's just being anal. Get the app and enjoy.
