Timer Icon

It would have been more comfortable to use actual numerical value for showing the time left instead of the circular icon. People tend to feel that the time for them to take token is very short because they really don't know how much time left by just looking at the icon. Or maybe, along with the timer icon, they can also display the actual numeric value of the time left.

Great 2FA app

I have been always wanting a 2nd factor authentication for my gmail account as these days its not difficult for smart hackers to get your password esp. when login at public places like cybercafes. This 2FA device which works like a VPN provides extra comfort.
You also have backup codes in case you dont have access to the phone, hence the app.
