"I've been using the Round Timer app on my iPhone for about as long as I've had my Iphone... If you're someone that's training for rounds, doing circuit work, etc. this app is worth your 99 cents. With the level of customization you get, the app is competitive with the way more expensive round timer devices that can cost upwards of $10-100."

- Description -
The Round Timer was the first round/sparring/boxing 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 Round Timer is a convenient round/boxing/sparring timer for your iPhone/iPod touch, now compatible with both iOS 3 and 4. The Round Timer is a fully functional round/sparring timer that allows you to customize the length of the rounds, warning bell and resting period. Each of these intervals can be configured separately up to an hour. It will run in the background even if you switch to another App.
With the sound themes, you can choose which alarm sounds to use: boxing/MMA, a relaxing Zen theme, and a few others. Don't like any of the preinstalled sounds? Don't worry! You can record your own sounds.
For large, loud environments you can plug your device into a stereo, or for small sessions put it in the corner of the mat. The Round Timer is great for any sparring or interval training: boxing, MMA, grappling / bjj, martial arts, yoga, meditation, crossfit, exercise, workout, stretching, etc.
Working out to music is not a problem. Start your music playing in the iPod app, then start RoundTimer. The sounds will play over top of your music without interrupting it.
Please feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to suggest new sound themes!
Interested in interval training (Tabata, symmetrical, etc... intervals)? Check out our "IntervalTimer". Want more control? Check out "UltraTimer". Want full programmability and randomized intervals? Look at "UltraTrainer".
Version 2.1 fixes the bugs mentioned in the reviews.

What's New in Version 5.3
- Fixed preset name/file handling
THink this is a great app, works with no problems for me, timer and music are play/pausable from timer screnn, fade, new song, etc settings for each round during intervals... Tabata timer already avail., but can be modified and you can creat and save your own timer set ups. I use this app daily for various types of classes, strict workouts or fight drills... can't really say enough about it... nothing but praise for the app.
Good tool, but needs numeric audio counter
So I usually use the timer while listening to music, however, I never know what round it is, because I'm more focused on exerting as much into my workouts during round and rest during breaks than I am trying to keep track of what round I am in. It would be nice if the audio would announce the current round at the beginning of each one. The muse workout app does this. For example, at the beginning of round 5 a voice should say "Round 5.". Please?!?
Versatile timing tool
Whatever issues some prior purchasers have had with the software seem to have been corrected. I use this timer for lots of different drills.
The only thing I can think of that would improve this tool is the ability to program a "workout complete" sound once all the sets are done.
