Kagan’s famous TimerTools software is now available as an app. You get a suite of powerful timers that are super easy to use. Timers include: Countdown, Stop Watch, Turn Timer, Seconds Up, Seconds Down, and Interval Timer. Access and set any timer with just a few clicks. All the most frequent times teachers use are available as presets. Timer display size is maximized to see from a distance. More attractive and teacher-friendly than any other timer apps available.
Timers continue running in the background while multi-tasking.
Ratings and Reviews
Like the timers... Wish it did more
I'm a huge Kagan fan. I like the timers this app has, although they are basic, there are a variety including an interval timer which another reviewer said it didn't. I guess what I don't like is that when your screen goes to sleep so does the app... This could be fixed, but you would have to change your phone or iPad settings to keep your screen on longer. I would have liked to see more too for the money... With the software Timer Tools, which I also have, there are so many more options. Maybe an update is warranted?
Timer stops when iPhone sleeps
One thing a timer should do is be reliable. My Alarm that is part of the iPhone works great even if the phone sleeps to save battery. I love Kagan, but if the timer isn't accurate what is the point?
Not what I was hoping for!
I attended a Kagan training and the presenter used the Kagan timers and I was thrilled to see in their catalog a timer for the iPad and iPhone. Please do not buy if this is the case, you'll be disappointed. The screen is blurry, not the crisp clear screen you see in the photos. The timer did not have the one I was really hoping for either, the one where the timer goes off after each student's turn, up to five students. Bummer! I had high hopes, but this has fallen very short!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
