TX Timer is a simple-to-use but very powerful application created by people who know radio & TV for people who work in radio and TV.
Its nicely designed user interface operates in 2 modes: basic (portrait mode) and advanced (landscape mode), with features that include:
Time calculator for performing a variety of mathematical tasks with time
4 timers with count up, count down and count to modes
Optional voice count
Timers remain accurate even if the application is shut down.
Please note: As live production timing always works in hours, minutes and seconds, TX Timer is not designed to work with timecode. There are specialist applications to do this.
Completely resigned and rewritten for iOS9
Simplified a few aspects of operation
Added an options page to control audio clicks and prompts
Updated links for documentation and support details

Can I get a refund?
This app is awful.. Just awful. It crashes.. It's not formatted for my phone, and as far as I can tell the timers are only count up timers, not count down.
serves my needs but clicks are annoying. switched to landscape mode to turn off sound but clicks don't stop
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
