Not a good app imho - This has a poorly QA'd interface where text is cut off throughout, and onscreen triggers are not clearly displayed. There are no preferences available to alleviate font sizing problems, so if you have poor spacing, you are out of luck. This MIGHT be worth .99 $, and that is being generous. This looks like someone's early attempt at programming. Since I cannot return a software app, I am out my dough…. Caveat emptor! :)

Version 2.3
Review by anonymous law student

Don’t buy! It can’t keep time! - The timers run slow, by a large margin. I did numerous comparisons and it consistently was slower. For example: I set two timers both for 15 minutes. When the one on my phone went off, the one on this app still had 11+ minutes left!! I guess you take it for granted that a time keeping program knows how long a “minute” is supposed to be. Now you know so you don’t waste your money.
