Timer for kids - visual task countdown for preschool children, family & friends - help in chore daily activities & morning routines

By Idea4e

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Do you ever struggle to have your kid accomplish a task within given time boundaries?
With Task Timer for Kids daily routines like cleaning, teeth brushing and dressing up become fun and competitive. You set the time duration and select favorite animal picture that will be slowly revealing during the countdown.

- 11 animal pictures
- you can pick any picture from your photo library
- 3 music themes
- very simple to use
- beautiful design
- works in background when you use other apps
- sends notification when time is up

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.

Customer Reviews

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.

Inappropriate ads

As soon as timer ends ads pop up. One of the ads was very very inappropriate. No, I'm not a paid user BUT this app is made to be used with children. Shame on this company for not monitoring the content that our children are viewing. Shame on myself for trusting some random app whose sole purpose is monetary. Never again. Deleted and warning others.
