Description

A Simple Fun Timer, designed for teachers or anyone else who needs to set timed tasks for groups of children in a classroom or similar environment.

The engaging graphics and sound effects mean tasks get completed in a fun and efficient way.
The teacher sets the target amount of time for the class to perform a particular task. The countdown timer is then started. The timer can be viewed from the Apple device itself or displayed on a larger format device such as an interactive board or TV screen using screen mirroring features of the Apple Devices.

If the class completes the task in the defined time limit the teacher can tap the "tick" button and the "Well Done" screen is displayed and a fanfare sound effect is played. However, if the class run out of time the Alarm rings on the clock, the clock bounces around the screen and then explodes in a comic fashion.

This app really encourages students to complete any assigned task, the students can see graphically how much time they have left to complete the task.

The teacher is able to pause, restart and reset the timer at any time. The app has an audible "ticking" sound when the timer is running, the teacher can enable and disable this by simply tapping the speaker button on the apps main screen. The Fanfare and Explosion sound effects can be controlled via the audio controls on the Apple device.

This is a simple but fun and engaging app to assist the teacher in their classroom management activities.

Users are able to send feedback, make enhancement requests or report any issues from inside the app.

New Ads are Extremely Intrusive

This used to be great. Now there are full screen ads (often with video!) that start when you try to start a timer. Imagine, a full class watching the projector screen waiting for a timer, when an ad for a video game pops up. Total nightmare.

I can’t decide if I’m going to pay to upgrade to the “pro” version or just pay to use a different app, as their new ad system was so disruptive and frustrating.

Seriously, if you want to create an ad paywall there are much better ways to do so (provide restricted/limited use, header or bottom ad bars, even less intrusive ads).

Apologies for the very delayed reply. We did listen though. Please see the response to "JhollysFolly" review from 3rd Jan 2019. If you find the ads are not working as described in that response, please feel free to contact us directly at support@academyapps.net. Apologies again for the delay in providing feedback.

Poor grammar

This is a nice basic timer. When time runs out there is a fun explosion graphic which reads, "Times up." The apostrophe is missing. This makes it unusable in my classroom. I'll wait for the update.

Drains battery

I like this in class. It really keeps us on track however it runs the battery out just I've half way through class. I set it each hour to help us quickly see how much time we have left. That works great then we have no iPad for the rest of the day. I'm not sure why it drains so fast with only this app. Fix the drain and the it will have more stars from my class.
