Period. ITGO HD functions in portrait mode and flips 180 on the iPad.
OPERATION of ITGO HD is based around three main screens; the Timer, Settings and Audio screens.
Users start by selecting their session workout time, the fast interval duration and the slow/fast interval ratio. Users can also choose to switch the vibration alerts on or off on this page.
Next, users can switch to the Sounds page to select music from their onboard iPod library for the separate Slow and Fast playlists. The Sounds page also includes options to choose audio prompts, select the playlist play mode and volume settings for the prompts and music.
Finally users switch to the Timer screen and after selecting a warm up and cool down length from zero to 3 minutes, start their workout. ITGO's timers then count down the intervals in circular segments and displays individual numerical timers for the fast and slow intervals and total session duration as well as the currently playing song and provides alerts at each interval change.
The music playlists can be set to shuffle, repeat or just play in order.
The TIMER screen displays your progress for total session time and current fast/slow interval time.

Tool is too inflexible for true interval work. There is a much better option in the app world.
Not for Tabata or kettlebell-style interval training.
As someone who likes to do kettlebell interval training along with tabata interval training, I found this to be completely useless.
This timer allows you to set up a "fast phase" and a "slow phase." (I guess thats the equivalent of "Work" and "Rest") You select the slow phase by selecting the length of the fast phase (which is limited to 90 seconds), how long each interval is going to be and then selecting one of three ratios...so rather than just typing in how long you want your rest period, you have to select a ratio of work/rest.
I agree with the first reviewer that this timer is very inflexible. A lot of my kettlebell workouts involve setting my Gymboss timer to how much time it takes me to do a circuit plus a little extra so the faster I do the circuit the more rest I get during that interval. So setting a single interval of 2m:45s can't be done with this timer.
I also find this timer to be unintuitive. The fact Im playing with ratios rather than just setting the timer to how long I want my intervals makes this timer more work than it's worth.
If you're looking for a good interval timer to replace a real-world Gymboss, I recommend Tabata Pro. It allows you to set THREE times (Prepare, Work, Rest) along with the number of reps and the number of tabatas (optional) that you want to do. You get to select the precise length of each interval time. No fumbling around with ratios trying to figure out which combination of "Fast Phase" and Ratio is going to give you the rest period you're looking for. It also has big clear numbers rather than fancy LED-type indicators and lights.
The ITGO is pretty and nice to look at...and maybe practical for running or cycling...but for the rest of us, it's not going to cut it.
Ah Ha Ha Ha Ha- Check Out this bizzare
@bethgolfs What planet are you on?..lol.. This app is fantastic! It does what is says on the tin and looks superb. There isnt another interval trainer to touch it, and I've looked..lol
I love the dual playlist which is a first for interval training on the iPad or the iPhone, iPod touch for that matter. And it gives you a lot of flexibility. OK. It doesnt do every single possible method of interval training but I guess the developers were trying to appeal to the masses as opposed to trying to do every possible combination.
Definitely highly recommended. ;)
