This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app does one thing but it does it extremely well. If you give presentations, training, tutorials, or speak publicly, this app is for you. Beautifully animated, with large, easy to read numbers that change colors at thresholds you determine. When the timer hits 0:00, the colors invert (black on red) and continue counting up indicating how long you've gone over. Fully customizable options and simple touch controls
* Create and save as many timers as you want
* Set time limits for color warnings to change the clock to green, yellow and red
* Timers can be configured to give audible and/or vibration alerts when crossing a time limit threshold—but if you want a completely silent countdown, thats ok too :)
What's New in Version 2.0.1
+ Minor Bug Fixes
Really loved the app until...love it even more.
Two different occasions, once at a retreat, and another time on a stage, as I was talking, my finger brushed my iPhone on the podium, and the timer stopped! perhaps HOLD the face to pause it? Or double click?
This was my original post above. But now there is less chance of that because the touch area to start and stop has been reduced. Would be nice if that area were made clear or a stylized Burton. Don't understand what folks complaining about with the running on, as a presenter, you stop your timer when done. You forgot to stop it, that'd be on you. If I go over I need to see how much. This is still the best to me.
Latest Update is Problematic
This used to be a very simple, very effective timer for my speech classes at a university. Now it's much harder to use, it used to be very easy to pause or reset and now the buttons are inconsistent and hard to make work properly expecially for something like a debate round where switching between timers takes a lot of effort. Pausing is hard to do, resetting is often not working or takes several tries. The concept is good but the UI needs an overhaul to make it easier to switch and reset timers.
Pretty Good Little App
My need for this app isn't frequent, and its simplicity in use and function work well with the fact that I seldom use it. It's clean, has a small memory size footprint, and does the job perfectly. But I'm giving it 4 rather than 5 stars because I did notice some inconsistency with when certain labels such as 'tap to pause' show up, as other reviewers have noted.
