Today we’re going to keep it short and sweet; not because this App is lacking in quality, importance, or love from us, but rather because it is SO incredibly easy to use that there isn’t a whole lot to say. As a matter of fact, it’s this simplicity that makes this App the best of it’s type that I’ve ever used! When you want to start a countdown timer, you don’t need (or want) the extra frills and bells that accompany so many other Apps; you want quick, simple, and to the point. Timer for the iPhone fills this need perfectly!
The user interface for Timer is simple; crazy simple. As you can see in the screen shot above they have included what they feel are common times that people want. activating these times is as simple as tapping the desired icon. When a time is selected, it immediately starts counting down. When it reaches the end of the time an alarm sounds indicating that your timer is up. To reset the expired timer you simply tap it a second time. It’s as easy as that. To change any of the preset times, all you have to do is hold that particular timer for three seconds to enter the edit screen.
If you want a custom time that is not indicated by a preset on the screen there are three custom options at the bottom of the screen to choose from. By tapping on one of the grey squares along the bottom of the screen you can input the time that you need. These custom timers act just like the preset times, counting down until the time expires or it is reset by an additional tap.
The Bottom Line
So that’s it! That’s all there is to this super simple, but extremely useful App! If you need a simple, to the point timer for your iPhone, this is the App for you.
