ONE TAP TALKING KITCHEN TIMER (with multiple timers running at the same time)
This app is a perfect tea timer or pasta cooking timer.
The best way to use this app: start up the timers you need, and stop the app.
Start up other activities, do most of whatever else you would do with or without your device.
You do not need to run TALKING CHEF TIMERS to CHECK (Chef C) to hear the timer announcements!!
You will be receiving spoken messages, even from the background, like:
"the tea says you still have 5 minutes","the pasta says the time is up now"
Some of the features:
- Talking, speaking timer
. tells you the remaining time in human sentences, more and more frequently as the target time is coming near. The setup is in your hands.
. also alerts you after the time has expired, e.g. "the tea says you are one minute late".
- This is the little sister of TALKING CHEF TIMERS (Talkin.Chef). The only difference is that this app contains two 'food' timers only.
- One tap startup
Start up the app, tap on the name of the food, the timer will start immediately.
- Multiple timers at the same time
Just tap on the name of the next food, the next timer will start up.
Each timer will speak to you in human sentences, e.g. "the tea says the counting stopped five minutes ago"
- Spoken messages from the timer even if TALKING CHEF TIMERS is NOT running
Even while watching a movie on your device at the same time. Or while having your device in your pocket.
Or listening to the private message only you will hear, while talking to your boss on the same phone.
Just listen: "the tea says the time is up now","the pasta says you still have 8 minutes"
- Use different dialects for different food or different messages
Currently TALKING CHEF TIMERS to CHECK speaks: US, British, Indian English and Hungarian.
Each message of each timer can be set to a different language or signal or left to be silent.
- Optimized for very low energy usage
TALKING CHEF TIMERS does not even need to run for you to get the messages
