OutTime is the simplest-to-use app for toddler timeouts.
Out Time is a visual time-out timer for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. It helps to make time-outs a calmer experience for both parents and children, by displaying a visual progress indicator that even young children can understand, and helping parents to consistently give age-appropriate time-outs.
We know that when parents are reaching for a time-out app, they may already be contending with an upset child and need the experience to be as quick and simple as possible. By remembering your settings so that you can open the app and start the timer immediately, Out Time keeps your focus on your child.
- Allows you to quickly set the number of minutes matching your child’s age
- Visualizes the elapsed and remaining time in a way that young children can understand
- Gives both visual and audio cues when the timer ends
- Remembers your settings between uses
- Pleasing graphics and colors encourage calm

Great Simple App!
This App is straightforward and simple. Exactly what is needed "in the moment." Works well for my 2 1/2 yr old and 4 year old. I simply put him or her in time out, start the app with one minute per year of age and when it dings they know they're done. Thanks for creating it!
Great for time outs
This toddler time out timer is great. My toddler did not do well with time outs until this timer. It instantly calms her down as she watches the timer wheel get smaller. Life saver!!!
