- Notifications so you can continue with other tasks
- Apple Watch® companion app

Perfect for:

- Gym workouts on the circuit or HIIT

- Reminders to drink water
- Focus on work or study with planned breaks
- Spinning a Pokéstop™ every 5 minutes

What’s New

Version 2.3

Added support for shorter duration infinite timers. This was a popular request, for infinite timers less than 60 seconds. Due to limitations in iOS notifications, the timer must be a divisor of 60, so we now have support for 10s, 15s, 20s and 30s infinite timers. NB: this is not supported on Apple Watch, where the minimum is still 60s.

Also, now updated for iOS 13 and the menus have had a slight re-design.

Bonus feature: More timer alert sounds

Used to be great ... Great Again!

After update to iOS 13, the app closes after each interval (eg if you ask for four 30-second intervals, the app closes every 30 seconds). The app is still running, and it gives a notification that the interval is done, but I want to see the timer until the whole sequence is complete.

Update: Developer is on the ball, and fixed the problem very quickly. This app is easy to use, simple, no unnecessary complications. I tried several similar apps, this is the best.

My only suggestion is to have alternating time intervals. For example, I would like to exercise for one minute intervals with 10 seconds rest in between the exercise intervals. On the other hand, that might make the interface too complicated. Either way, it’s very useful for doing my timed physical therapy exercises.

Hey, sorry about that. Yep, iOS 13 introduced a weird bug. An app update is on the way to fix this.

No infinity repeat

+ Nice ui
+ Nice icon
+ Looks like it’s capable of infinite timers
+ option for repeat timer sound and ending timer sound
+ couple of nice ring tones to choose from (My favorites are Bling, Eliza, and Wizzle)

- Currently the max amount of times that a timer can repeat is 200 times. Then the timer wont repeat again until it is manually restarted.

- Hard to distinguish between multiple timers

- Very tedious to delete other timers one by one

-will not vibrate if screen is locked. Tried it with do not disturb off, low battery power off and it still wouldn't vibrate. 😞

- These ringtones are obnoxious:
1) Boxing bells
2) Buzzer
3) Carbon
4) Dose Vader
5) Evolution
6) Horsey

What were you thinking?
Who would want to listen to horsey on repeat? 🙈🙉

Advice to devs $$$
I think the app would be awesome
If it had

$$$ an infinite loop
$$ repeat on certain days or on a schedule
$ pauses between timers
$ less obnoxious ringtones
$$$ more non obnoxious ringtones
$$$ distinguish between timers with different colors? Or titles?

Hey, thanks for what is the best review Repeat Timer has ever received. Very thorough!

I will look into infinite timers feature.

And I will look at adding more timer alert sounds (ringtones).

Tip: You can change the name of a timer to help distinguish between them, just tap on the timer name and the keyboard will appear.

Bait and switch

I don’t mind paying for apps. If the price to purchase the app had been $2 I would have paid for it and been happy. As a developer, you need to be up front with your customers as to what’s in the free version, and what’s in the paid version. In the free version of this app, you can repeat up to every 4 minutes, up to 6 times. Anything more than that is on the paid version.

Unfortunately I do not support apps that try and hide the pay wall.

Thanks for the feedback James.
