- Description -
UltraTimer is the original fully-programmable and customizable interval timer in the AppStore. As a result, it is the most refined and feature-rich interval timer today!
UltraTimer is an easy and convenient way of timing any activity or series of activities. It is now compatible with both iOS 3 and 4.
You can set a single timer or multiple timers, each including series of count-down intervals that run back-to-back. Each interval can be customized to play a different alarm sound from the included library, as well as change the background color for visual feedback.
It is easy to set up intervals for any activity: training (martial arts, boxing, mma, circuit training, interval training, Crossfit, HIIT / HIT, yoga, meditation, exercise, workout, cycling, running, etc), time management for switching between multiple projects, or anything else you can think of.
For a complete workout, you can set up a Timer Group which will play individual timers back to back. Start out with your favorite Warm Up timer, then run through your favorite Training timer, and end with a Stretching timer. UltraTrainer will run you through your full workout automatically.
The included sound library comes with a wide variety of reminder sounds suitable for relaxing timers, high intensity activities, and everything in between. Custom sounds can also be recorded via the microphone; you are not limited to the included sound library.
Exclusive to our products, users can browse the Timer Exchange, a community where people freely exchange timers. Search, browse, and download timers that other users have uploaded. If you want, you can upload your own timers to share with others.
If a friend also owns UltraTimer, you can exchange timers via a Wireless connection, e-mail, or the clipboard to use other methods.
Using UltraTimer with music playing is not a problem. You can begin playing music on the timer screen, pause it, or skip to the next track.
Just a few features in UltraTimer:
- Timer Exchange community
- Runs in the background
- Copy/Paste Intervals and Actions
- Delayed start time
- Over 70 included sounds
- Record your own sounds
- Large countdown timer display
- iPod music playback control lets you pause/play the current track or move to the next track from the countdown timer screen
- Pause the timer to temporarily halt the activity
- Timer state is saved if it is interrupted
- Still runs if screen is locked
- Intuitive setup

What's New in Version 7.0
- Updated for iOS8
- Fullscreen interface
- Interface updates
This update is horrible so far.
I installed this app on my old iPod touch 4 running the latest IOS 6 to see if it worked with voiceover. It just crashes when I try to run it, I’m taken back to the screen I was on. I don’t want to update it on the device I use it on that is running IOS 8.1.2 because I’m not sure it will work there either and I don’t want to be without the program for an extended period of time.
I’m getting a third device I’ll install it there and see about updating this review. Ill also update it if they come out with another update that works.
Please, folks, fix this app. The current update is very buggy and should not be out there. I use a 4s running IOS 8 and had no troubles with the app until this update. Also, if you can add an easy to access screen lock, I would love that feature. For now, the app is really unreliable. Examples: there is no way to exit the help section; the app started a timer when opened; sometimes buttons work, sometimes they don't.
Lost perfection with update
I used to love this app. The update robbed me of perfection. The title of my set gave me my sequence order. Now instead of my title, when the timer chimes it just says "new interval". Duh. The chime tells me that. You took away my cheat sheet when you took away my titles. Why?
