Turn Timer lets you quickly and easily limit the time players take for their turn in games. Just set a time limit (eg 2 minutes) and you can easily reset the timer with a tap when it moves to the next players turn.

Turn Timer works great for many board games like Chess and Carcassonne, card games like Poker and for anything where a repeating timer would be useful! If you find your board games take too long because players drag out their turns why not try Turn Timer.

• Audible Time warnings - Turn Timer will make a short beep at 1 minute, 30 seconds and 15 seconds remaining and beep for every second remaining in the last 10 seconds so players always know how long they have without having to look at the screen.

• Large clear display - Turn Timer shows a large clear display of how long is left in the current turn and works in any orientation allowing you to easily setup your device in a way all players can see it.

• Quick reset - Just tap the screen at the end of your turn to reset the timer for the next player. If you want to stop the timer, just hold down till the timer stops.

• Pause timer - Just double tap the screen to pause the timer if people need to take a break.

• Works in the background - If you need to close the app quickly to use a different app your Turn Timer will keep going in the background and give you a notification when the timer runs out.

Perfect for my groups needs.


While simple, a perfect app for my group's gaming needs. Not well documented, but figured out how to use. Set the time you want to count down from, tap to reset the timer to that time, double tap to pause and hold to stop and set a different time. Only reason this isn't 5 stars is because the dev hasn't updated in years and iOS warns that without an update it won't work with newer versions.

A little too simple

Just Once More

Great start, but a little too simple and lacking the most basic control options. You should not have to exit the app to set a new timer value and there should be some choice as to the alarm sound.

Great concept though, just needs a bit more work.



Got this to remind to get up from the computer and move once an hour. Tried a 5-min. interval as a test, worked fine. But when I wanted to shift to hourly, there was no way to get out of the present screen. I even closed the app and reopened it--same screen. Could be useful, but obviously some work remains to make it viable.
