Tico Timer is a fun visual timer for children.


"Tico Timer is a really great idea. It works like magic to fit my needs." - ~ Geeks With Juniors

"Tico Timer is also a fabulously different little timer app that you don't need to be an infant to appreciate." ~ Creative Bloq

"...the functionality of the app makes it a wonder to interact with." ~ Trend Hunter

"Tico Timer makes the standard timer seem quite blasé." ~ Teachers With Apps


Select from eleven different types of countdown available, from disappearing squares to a shrinking circle, and it will tell your child - in a visual way - how much time there is left till the task at hand is due, be it brushing teeth or finish getting dressed.

There are seven original musical tracks to play along (and in sync) with the visuals on the screen.

Tico Timer is a great way for developing the sense of time in small children.

Has been great, til now

I have used this app for 2 years. Now when my phone updated the app will not work bc the developer has not updated the app to work with the phone updates.
I would prefer it to be updated as I use it constantly…

I love, love, love this app. Its graphical user interface is simple. The selection of ambient music is mesmerizing and holds the space for whatever task I’m trying to complete. PLEASE update this app so I can continue to use it on my ipad! My iPad is telling me it can no longer open the app! Don’t leave me hanging here! Or, tell me how I can use it without use my ipad, which isn’t that new, but must’ve updated its system software. Please, you’ve got us hooked. Don’t leave us high and dry. We love your app! :-)

The best visual timer

It's my favorite tool when working with kids. The only thing I wish for is a landscape view. But since this app hasn't been updated in six years, I'm doubting that will happen.
