The timing screen has a large time display that can easily be read from a distance. It works in portrait or landscape.

Ratings and Reviews
All You Need in a Fitness Timer app
I’ve been using this app for a few months now. It’s everything I could imagine needing in a fitness timer app. It is so versatile and so easy to customize. I’ve saved about a dozen of my own routines and it only takes a moment to program a workout found in a magazine or online. And once it is programmed, it’s there forever, whenever you need it. And with the sync feature, you can have it on all devices. I’ve even shared them with friends who have the app using the export feature.
Save your routines to a folder... or two... multiple versions even... It’s up to you. I make full workouts for my normal routine and abbreviated versions for when I’m pressed for time.
With all of my routines on hand at any given time, I have one less excuse for just getting one done. In fact, having this app has made me MUCH more consistent in my exercise regimen. I can’t say enough about it. Seven Stars! *******
Buy the Pro version!
March 2018 Review Update
Have now realized that the app also easily connects to a basic Polar heart rate monitor. Add this to the total flexibility of the display layout, I now have the perfect device for interval training on my Nordic Trac. The electronics on my NT, which is over 20 years old, died many years ago, but Seconds Pro is obviously even better.
I've been using the free version for several years for everything from timing stretch routines to timing steaks on the grill. I never thought I needed the pro version.
Recently I thought I had identified a bug so I sent the developer an email, what did I have to lose. Not only did I get a personalized response confirming that the latest iOS version was causing a problem, but they also invited me to be a beta tester of the corrected Pro version.
Even the free version has so much flexibility and functionality available as far a setting up various routines, all of which you can use without looking at the app, as the text to voice capability is excellent. I'm now ready to set up and refine all of my routines, which because I have the Pro version I can now save.
Like I said I've use the free version for years, but if you use a timer regularly, I highly recommend forking out the money for the paid pro version. You will be glad you did.
I use this app all the time for my fitness classes and even for personal use. But there are just a couple of things I find irksome:
1. I will create a timer for a class the morning before and when I go to use it later, it will often have reverted to an earlier version or completely deleted itself and I have no idea why that is happening. There isn't a (save) button so I just assumed that it live saves as I work on the timer, but it seems really spotty as far as what will actually be saved.
2. The very first time I used the "compound timer" and created sub timers, the program for some reason saved those timers and now any time I try and create the same kind of timer it auto populated with the settings from those first timers and I now have to completely delete out those timers before I can start with my new one. Maybe I have a setting wrong? But this creates tons of issues if I'm not super careful and change over all of the settings.
