IdeaTimer, a powerful iOS Timer
Obviously the official timer app built in iOS is good, but not powerful enough. In the app store, we could find many powerful timer apps, but not easy to use. We introduce IdeaTimer here, a new iPhone app by ideasplit team. As its name implies, it is a very powerful timer with a intuitive, neat and bright interface.
The main list of IdeaTimer shows current timers. Each row represents a timer, while containing a big round button in the left. To start a timer, you could simply tap control button, that is all. The button will immediately transit to a progress indicator. To stop it, double tap the progress indicator. The double tap action could prevents most accidental operations. Image that a half-progress 30 minutes timer is aborted by accidental tap is very annoyed.
The buttons onthe bottom bar allow you to add new timer or manage current timers. To create a timer, tap the 'Add' button, then scroll its time slider, done! You can start this timer by tap its control button now. Unlike almost other timer apps, a required timer could be created in just 2 steps.
If you feel it is hard to slide to config a timer, buttons '-' '+' on the popup panel could be helpful. The popup panel will appear automatically.
To manage your timers, tap the 'Edit' button on the bottom bar. You can delete and re-config exist timers as well. Lots attributes of timer could be customized.
IdeaTimer also provides a very powerful features, 'timer group'. It allows you build any timer you want. In a timer group, timer will started automatically when its previous timer is finished.
0:45:00 + 0:15:00, repeat
A 45 minutes work time and a 15 minutes coffee break can be grouped into an efficiency productivity cycle. You can make it repeats when finished.
8:00:00 + 0:05:00 + 0:05:00
Group a 8 hours sleep-time and some 5 minutes snooze timers to get a nice alarm clock. If you want, add a silent timer to make this group as long as 24 hours so it can be repeated everyday on time!
Seriously, IdeaTimer is the ultimate choice for setting timers. For it is very simple to use and powerful features.
