  • Awesome app, a couple of suggestions Jan 11, 2018

    This is the best visual timer app I have found for iPhone! I work in special education and I use it to time worktime (e.g., 10 minutes left of math) and breaks for kids. I have it set so the picture is not revealed until the time runs out, so students don’t get distracted by the picture when they should be working. The sneaky pause & add/subtract time buttons are great for subtly adjusting time without having to stop the timer completely. I like this app so much that I paid for the premium pack instead of just removing ads because I wanted to support the devs. My two suggestions are 1) show time somewhere, just a little digital timer like the default phone timer countdown, and 2) keep the picture on the screen when the countdown ends until the screen is tapped or something. If the child isn’t looking at the timer right when it runs out, they miss out on seeing the picture. While I love the visual timer, I don’t want my students to only stare at the timer or get fixated on watching it at the end to see the picture. It would be nice for them to still have a chance to see the “reward”/celebration screen.

    This app is really good however there is too many ads and considering the target audience, children and children with disabilities, it really should be ad free.

    This is a great app. I love how it’s visual so a kiddo who doesn’t understand time super well can still see how much time until it goes off. It’s also great that you can change the pictures that’s revealed to whatever you want. It’s simple and easy to use. There are some downsides to the free version (ads, can only add one picture), but I think that’s understandable since it’s offered for free and since there is a paid option in which you can eliminate those problems. Only two complaints (1) the ticking is really loud. I find myself turning my phone down to a one or two because it’s so loud I would like it if it was a little quieter. (2) you can only increase the time by 10 second intervals. It would be ideal to do it by seconds or at least 5 second intervals (but seconds would be even better. Overall I would recommend this app.

    Very nice. I use this a lot with my 2 year old, she loves seeing if she can beat the timer. My only request would be for the image to stay up on the screen at the end of the timer until a button is pressed, because every so often she misses the ending. But the timer is a great way to get kids to understand time and to implement predictability for our kids, i.e. when we need to leave - I can tell her she has 5 or 10 more minutes to play and when the timer ends, we go home.

  • Great timer app for small kids Jul 6, 2020

    By JupiterElf
    I have a 2 year old (almost 3) and we had issues with transitions. We used to set Alexa timer but he would get upset when that was done. Now we use this and it’s a world of difference. We set the timer and show him how much time he has and every so often show him how much time he has left during activity. When it gets close to being done I ask if he wants to want it explode. He understands when timer is done he is done with activity (usually playing for a few extra minutes) and is actually happy to go on with his routine. We have not had as much whining after timer is done and when we have it’s been minimal. I think being able to SEE how much time he has left is great and he is able to understand that much more then being told he has 5 minutes.

    Love how I can set this and it ticks down the time. I love how the theme changed everytime I use it. Works great for getting my kids to do something in a certain about of time.

  • My son loves it Jul 2, 2020

    By @@9827!!LAMOM"
    Great timer! We love how it ticks, so there are both visual and auditory cues. The reward image at the end is great for kiddos that need motivation to stay and wait until the end. Our son has Autism and this is a great timer that we constantly use. It has helped him wait out temper tantrums, potty training, and so many other things. We have recommended this app to several other parents and even his therapists use this now as well! Our son actually also loves the commercials at the end of the time so it doesn’t annoy us. It’s actually one of his “rewards” and he looks after it :) One thing we also love is how the ticking sound accelerates as it gets closer to the last one minute mark. It’s a great free app!

    Love this app!!! Fantastic at meal times. 😀👍Love that we can add our own pics. It would be great if we could add sounds too. I've noticed recently though that the pause and forward/backwards features freeze when the timer starts.

  • Perfect for my autistic son Jun 10, 2018

    By Odins_Grrl
    This visual timer has helped us in so many ways I couldn’t even begin to tell you about them all. We very rarely have meltdowns from activity changes anymore. It even helped us potty train! If I had to make any changes I would suggest making the ticking sound optional as it can bother some kids and definitely gets a lot of looks in public. Otherwise this has literally changed our lives. Given the visual cues and enough time my son now transitions so easily from even his most preferred activities. All of his teachers, therapists and aids have this app as well now. Thank you for such an amazing simple solution.

  • OT use Jul 11, 2017

    By Miss Elissia to the G
    I love this visual timer! It's simple and uses seconds to help during my therapy sessions. The sounds and pictures are pretty great. I have a few suggestions/recommendations to make for an upgrade. The first one is if there could be an option to have the sound continue making the noise once the time is up. Another is if we choose to have a custom picture, could we also choose to have a custom sound. Possibly something that we can record our self, such as a persons voice saying "times up" or "what's next". Besides the few adjustments that hopefully can be made I really do value this app. I've shared it with all my therapy friends...SLP's, PT's, RT's and Psych's.

  • Must have app open to work May 20, 2019

    By Shejoh
    For me this would be a 5 star App IF I could set the timer on my son’s iPad then let him play on the iPad while it did it’s thing in the background. I set it up with a custom picture of him on his potty seat. I had hoped that it would go off while he was playing on his iPad as a audible/visible reminder to go potty to help him learn to initiate it. He’s developmentally delayed and is just now potty training at 5 1/2. He often has his iPad with him at all times listening to music or books as well as using it for communication so having a fun timer on that was what I was hoping for (and one he can’t jack with unlike the timer the iPad comes with). There are so many other things I could have used this for, especially with the ability to put a custom picture that would essentially tell my son what it is time for but since it won’t function if you are doing other things on the iPad it’s a waste for us. Super disappointed.

    App cuts out and stops when set for a larger amount of time. Amazing for short time outside. Love that you change the pictures.

    The ticking noise is unplesant, but can be disabled. The display is not exactly what I'd like, but it's useful in a few scenarios.
