We created this app to make "5 minutes" sound less abstract for our own children. We found it extremely useful and we do hope that you will find it useful too.

Expect to spend money
This app is just what I was looking for. A visual timer plus the number of minutes and seconds on it. I like that it also has music you can turn on and off, and you can adjust the timer up or down in 20 second intervals if you need to while it's working. (If you have a child that may do this while you're not looking, I suggest turning it on then turning on the Guided Access so they can't click anything on the screen.)
What I don't like is that, although you can use this for free, there are an overwhelming number of pop up ads with in app purchases. Within the first 2 times I used this, it drove me mad so I paid the $1.99 to remove them - phew, done. I really wanted to see what the other pictures and sounds were (for free you can see 4 of the 12 pics and hear 1 of the 3 sounds and the rest are greyed out). So again, I paid another $1.99 to get access to everything.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because again you "could" use it for free, but expect to spend either $2 or $4. Now, I'm generally a frugal app person and really never pay for apps (there are so many free ones out there, why would you) so that's how they got me interested, but in this case as I mentioned, it was exactly what I was looking for and saved me from having to go out and buy an egg timer or more expensive kids timer.
This app works exactly as I need it to. It doesn't have too many ads and they always pop up just before I set the timer so I don't have worry about it. While the song can be a bit annoying it is SO much better than some of the noises other timer apps make.
This app is fun until it becomes clear it’s a money trap. We spent money to unlock every different clock, but it kept showing ads unsuitable for kids. Then we paid 2 dollars to remove all ads, but it kept showing ads and prompting us multiple times to spend 2 dollars again. We have deleted it and will never use it again.
