We created this Timer for Kids to make "5 minutes" sound less abstract for our own children. We found it extremely useful and we do hope that you will find it useful too.

By the way, App Store reviews are very helpful to us. If you think that Timer for Kids is worthy, would you mind taking a moment to write a review? I really helps and we'd greatly appreciate it.

Can’t family share in app purchases but no way to purchase full app?!?

I purchased this on our family’s old iPad to use to help the kids get ready in a timely manner for school in the mornings. The kids loved it, so I went ahead and upgraded to all the music and pics, so I could choose pics of my kids from the camera roll. Later I decided to add the app to my iPhone, and was able to download from the purchased apps section. The FULL app works on my phone. I recently decided to add it to my new iPad as the old ipad is getting a little sketchy. I was disappointed to find though that when I downloaded the app from “my purchases” it is only the lite version that works, with 1 song and 2 generic pictures. I don’t know why it worked when I downloaded it to my iPhone but not my new ipad. I also think it’s ridiculous that you can’t share in app purchases, but there isn’t a way I have found to purchase the entire app from the App Store. The full version of this app I would give 4 stars, the songs are a little cheesey, but fortunately can be muted. The toddler enjoys the animal pictures, and the big kids like pictures of themselves. It definitely helps them visualize how much time we have in the morning and how quickly they need to finish: eating, brush teeth, put on shoes, etc... But since the app sharing is so crummy I’m just giving it 2 stars.

Video Ads on a kid app ...awful!

The app is initially very cute and a great way for children to learn time management. However, I have no idea why the need to put pop up Ads once you start the timer. There are already ads at the bottom of the screen. You don't have to make the ads so invasive and push the ads down our our throats! It's ridiculous especially for a children's app. I want my money back and I'll find a visual timer that's actually dedicated helping kids and not with an ulterior motive and just trying to make money from advertisers that solely want to sell crap using a kid app. Shame on you!

Half-way works...

Purchased the animals and music/sound so music would sound when the timer is up along with revealing the different animal picture options. The animal pics all work, but the music doesn’t at all. Frustrating. It still semi-works to help my almost-3yr old complete a task, etc....but it would be worlds better if there was sound to go with the end of the timer to help her know for sure the time was up.
