v1.41 Minor bug fix.
Love this: Wonderful visual timer I use this in my classroom. Its great for the students to monitor their progress towards the end of a project and prepare themselves for transitions. I love that i can set any amount of time and I love the colors. The kids are fascinated by the sand dropping and i have to remind them to do their work, not watch the timer. :-D Currently I use it on my phone then project it on the document camera. It would be wonderful if this could be turned into a chrome app or extension. Generalizing an accommodation like a visual timer for special needs student (Autism, traumatic brain injury, ADD, etc) where the whole class uses it helps to include special needs students in an invisible way. All kids benefit and it is not pointed out that special needs kids need the accommodation more particularly. Thank you so much!
This sand timer is neat. I like everything about it. My main suggestion, though, would be to add an animation that shows the hourglass being flipped upon tapping the reset button. I like the different-colored sands and the preset times. The 2-minute timer would be extremely useful for Tenzi. One of the cards involves setting a timer for 2 minutes and seeing how many Tenzis players can achieve in those 2 minutes. I also like that it runs in the background. Great job, Keuwlsoft
My application of this is to time my writing hours and sometimes chores or around the house. Because it motivates me to set time limits. I like the graphics, colors, different timers can all be preset. I like how if I go over the time, it still is timing. Some people said they couldn't hear it alarm and I agree that I haven't figured out that feature because sometimes I do hear it chirp and sometimes I don't. I like that it doesn't keep alarming if I go over my time limit. It really helps me keep track of exactly how much time I am writing because I can easily pause it and play it through the day so I can go take breaks to ponder something or do a bit of research or just eat lunch and do dishes.
Good: No ads. Nice countdown with fraction of second. 7-8 customizable preset alarms. Easy to repeat last alarm, or choose another preset: they are always visible accessible. Direct access numbers to set timers. Upcounter. BAD: No alarm or countdown sound - at least if ketpress sounds are off. (Should be separate for button presses & alarms.) Alarm sounds are harsh. Settings button in unintuitive location. On small screens, or split screen, presets & timer #s too small or overlap each other.
Update. Stopped working correctly. Timer always off. Doesn't ring half the time. Unreliable. What happened? Finally a simple timer that works flawlessly, visually appealing and mostly, without having togive any parmissions !!!"
