The application sports a simple interface with a strong focus on the essentials. Use the rotary dial to set the duration of the talk, press start, and the countdown begins. No fuss.
As the end approaches the digits seamlessly grows to increase your awareness that time is running out. And just when you need to wrap it up the colors are inverted, so that the black background turns white and subtly draws your attention to Talk Timer.

What's New in Version 1.1
Fixed some bugs :-)
A bit too simple?
I do like the simplicity but I would like a little control on the backside. Specifically, to be able to assign the time the graphic from black to white background.
Not displaying seconds is probably a good idea but for those who just can't handle not knowing, you could have as an option to put seconds in small print at the bottom of the screen
This app is delightfully simple. It does exactly what it needs to and nothing more. The app is not distracting at all (I think a seconds display would be distracting) and just tells you how much time you have left. Perfect!
Excellent for session chairs
I use this app every time I'm asked to chair a session at conferences. Simple and very easy to use. Installed on my iPad, I can sit in the front row and the speaker can always see how much time he/she has remaining.
