Visual Timer HD
By G. van Geloven
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Visual Timer HD is a timer which slowly uncovers a stunning photo over time.
Ideal for kids, who get a much better sense of time by watching the timers mask unveiling the picture. The time chimes when the time is up.
The timer can be set quickly by controlling a slider and/or plus and minus buttons for adding or substracting minutes.
And it includes a digital representation of the remaining time.
The timer has a maximum time limit set to an hour because most timers used for kids won't need to be any longer than that.
And the reference to a real clock will stay intact for the child.

Misses the point for kids
I wish there was a way to try apps out before buying. This is the second timer I've bought and both fail to really solve the problem of helping kids get ready on time. As the other reviewer mentioned the picture is not fully covered if you set it to less than 60 min so it really does not show the child if 1/2 the time is gone or only a bit of the time is gone. Also it does not let you choose the pictures you want. Which just makes it less atteactive for kids. We wont use it at all. Wish I could return for refund.
Yellow-orange slice of color didn't reduce in size over time
The yellow-orange slice of color covered the correct portion of the photo when the timer was set. The yellow-orange slice of color didn't reduce in size over time when the timer was activated, as was described in the app's promo paragraph. The yellow-orange slice of color stayed the same size until the timer reached 0:00, and then it suddenly disappeared. Promising app--beautiful photos and concept, not babyish like other kids' timer apps--hope the glitch gets fixed soon!
This app works as stated but the entire picture is only covered when the timer is set for 60 minutes. To make this more useful to use with children it would be nice to be able to set the timer for different times and still cover the entire picture. It would be especially nice to be able to import your own pictures.
