I Found the Seconds

I gave this app a five star rating when it was working well, a one star rating after losing the seconds, and now a four star rating. I have no idea why the seconds disappeared, but I learned from reading another review that I could View Seconds from the File menu. That information should have been prminantly stated when I clicked on the ? on the clock face to being up teh directions/help screen! Other than that, I really love this app and use it for various things every day. I will add back the fifth star if the information screen gets fixed (and I happen to see that it has been fixed).

BEST timer ⏳⌚️ no joke [imho]

They weren’t kidding when they said the best timer ever. This app lets you type in the time, what a concept and revolutionary. Full stop. The outstanding design of this app should win awards in my humble opinion. The AS TimerPRO has like actually really good alarm sounds! Let’s compare them to the Apple iPhone timer’s sounds, which are ok and kind of annoying. These timer sounds are honestly the best timer sounds of all timers I’ve tried. I could go on, idk who these people are but they are great designers. I looked at the other review and it seems that that bug was fixed at least when I was using it so that’s good. Oh, this app has a killer full screen mode and the extra settings are ama… you get the point. This is the only app that I would ever give it to but I’d give this app 6 stars.

Simple and great app

This tool is really nice when you need to timebox meetings. Project it to the screen and you will see everyone sticking to it, trying to avoid the huge alarm and message poping on the screen.

I also use it to help me focus without interruptions for short timespans, like 30 or 45, where I commit myself to not even read emails. Really usefull.

Although the free version was fine for my use case, I proudly paid for the pro version just because I wanted to support developers that create this nice App. It has been really helping me in meeting during the last few year. Congrats!
