Timer and counter with verbal audio and visual cues.
Physical Therapy or Personal Training: this app keeps time, counts reps and sets, and tracks your progress. Enter your own exercises and setup your entire workout. Clear verbal commands and chimes keep you going, while you can listen to music or focus on something else. If you are learning a new exercise, then put pictures and notes into this app, and watch them before you start the exercise.

• Just 4 taps to create exercise and start.
When you’re done, save it, name it, fine tune it.

• You can try the free “PT Timer Lite" before you buy.
• This app does not come with any exercises or instructions. You enter exercises, parameters and instructions for your own needs, and you can share them with friends or clients. If you already have instructional pictures on paper, then capture those pictures with the built-in camera function. You can fine-tune the timer settings to fit your own pace perfectly.

• "The app is very easy to use and has resulted in the quality of my exercises increasing markedly … it does meet my needs to a "T"!"
• "Best one ever. Have tried 2 others. At 65 stretching is important and this app helps."
• "…it lets you focus on other things if you have simple boring exercises."

• Avoid counting seconds and repetitions.
• Focus on something else while exercising.
• Get clear voice cues throughout your workout.
• Add photos and notes for directions.
• Listen to music from your playlists.
• Fine-tune timers down to the last detail.
• Share and import exercises.
• Create compound routines for entire workouts.

We listen to you! If you find problems or limitations, please be as specific as possible, so that PT Timer can be improved. If you found a bug, ------please also send email------ since additional information may be needed to fix the problem, and it is impossible for us to answer or ask questions via the App Store. Thanks for taking the time!

What's New

Version 2.2.0

• Sharing by email now uses a simple text code (instead of an attachment) which works with any email reader (not only with the Apple Mail app). Three new methods are available for sharing: 1) copy / paste of a text code; 2) share via a Facebook post; 3) share via Twitter. Exercises can be imported simply by tapping the shared link, or alternatively by copying the text code and tapping the new “Paste share link” button (on the Import view).
• The red badge on the app now shows the number of exercises that are due. PT Timer can notify you when exercises are due, using banners or alerts according to your settings in the iOS notification center.
• You can now synchronize tagged exercises such that if the exercises have the same schedule, then they will be scheduled for the same days. Furthermore, changes of exercise parameters will no longer cause the schedule tracking to be reset (which in previous versions could cause exercise schedules to get out of sync).
• The flashing yellow prepare cue can now be turned off (via More > Settings).
• Easily create Facebook posts and Twitter tweets with links to information about PT Timer.

• On the Workout tab, sorting exercises by duration is much faster.
• For exercises of type “reps without hold” an audible “rest” cue is now given whenever there is time.
• Several corrections and improvements of the user interface layout.
• Improved stability.

Looking forward to hear how you like it, and to your emails with requests for the next version.

Exactly what I need to stay on track


It's surprisingly hard to find an app that fills this niche, but this app does it perfectly. I can easily define exercises in the app with the duration and repetition my therapist prescribed, with text descriptions and photo illustrations, then group the exercises into a tag (e.g. "PT Week 1"), and schedule it to repeat on the prescribed schedule (e.g. Twice a day).

At exercise time, it gives me voice prompts along with timing to prepare for each other exercise, start, switch sides, rest, etc. I can easily pause it to review the exercise description and illustration, and when each exercise completes, I can mark how hard it was. All this is then tracked over time, and I can export it all as a CSV for my own analysis later.

Oh, and of course, I can play music in the background. And since this is all on my phone, I can stop and do my PT exercises at any place and time with the same level of comfort and convenience.

They thought of everything!


Bravo! Whoever made this clearly spent a lot of time thinking it through b/c it has every feature you could ever need! I use it for stretching my low back and the thing I love is that I can just press play on my "combo"(basically a playlist of all my stretches) and it takes me through all of my stretches with audio cues and I don't even have to look at it. You can customize the overall length of time, the time between reps and time for resting, the type of cues to tell you what to do (you can even record your own voice announcing the name of the stretch), whether or not to have it switch sides, how many reps, how many sets, and you can even upload pictures of your stretches in case you can't remember what to do. This app is absolutely worth the price and has made doing my stretches so much easier!

Exactly what I thought it should be


I love that I can think of an app that will make my life easier and then I search and find it.
Well after going to PT for several weeks I thought I should somehow incorporate the exercises in an app along with custom timers, reps, sets, and connect them to each of my issues so I can use it anytime in the future.
I first searched Alexa skills and found nothing. Not even something I could make on their new skill builder. How disappointing. I would have loved to hear it on my home theater system with voice control.
Next I searched online through 30+ apps and found this one.
Exactly what I envisioned and with a few things I never thought about.
I’m glad they also have a lite version that includes up to 3 exercises. A perfect amount to test with.
My only suggestions would be to change the name to something more universal because this could also be used for working out, yoga, and other recovery therapists.
Also their should be an easier way to upload the 3 exercises from lite to the standard version.
I’d also like to see a more professional looking format. Just compare to the competition who focuses on the medical field.
Also allow video.
Overall an excellent buy for just $2.99

Developer Response

Thank you for the nice feedback! The current version is indeed a bit dated by now, but we're hard at work on version 3, which will address at least some of your suggestions.
