About this app

*Important Notice* - Old app, but it can still work perfectly - if given the permissions it needs (see below). It's still being actively used by more than 40,000 people, me, my family & friends included :)
--
This app was built long ago, and I don't plan to update the app in the foreseeable future. It's a free app without trying to make money from it, so I can't afford to maintain it any longer. I do answer emails still.
--
to let the app trigger an alarm while in the background, please go to App Info (long tap on the app) and do the following:
(1) battery optimisation: opt this app out (optimisation OFF)
(2) advanced: Appear on top: turn ON
(3) test it: set timer for 10 seconds, start it and exit the app. If the alarm rings - you're set. If not - there may be variations of the above for your specific phone. Please try allowing other permission that may be relevant.

If you need a Large and simple Countdown Timer, Timesolutely lite is the app for you.
It is a very high quality short Interval Timer and Quick Alarm with very large digits.

The app was designed in particular for these use cases:

- As speakers' timer in presentations, lectures or debate club: The screen won't turn off while you speak.
- Real world timed games with friends, where each player has a time limit to complete a turn.
- To limit children's play or TV time, to allow taking fair turns and to educate about the meaning of time.
- In the kitchen: Very quick and easy to set and start, or pull previous session from history using the Rollback button.
- During exercise: Can run in the background, so you to can enjoy other apps in parallel.
- Taking naps: You can set to wake up at specific time of day, or after a specified time length. There's also a snooze button.
- For taking medication: Just enable the "Replay" button on the alert, and let it alert every 8 hours for example.
- For quick reminders: Set, for example, 1 hour with a 5 minutes early warning.

Limitations: this app does not include stopwatch and cannot measure more than 99 hours. It can run only one session at a time.


Main Features:

✔ Very large digits, readable from a distance
✔ App Widget
✔ Early Warning notification
✔ History rollback button
✔ Snooze & Repeat Buttons on the Alert
✔ Proximity sensor - prevents wake up in the pocket
✔ Ergonomic
✔ Interactive Help
✔ Safe app, and no advertising, beside a small in house banner to install my other app

ATTENTION:
- Make sure to add my app to the white list of any app that optimize battery life or deep sleep.

Love the big counter. I need to display the countdown to a room, and even on a smartphone people can see it. The ability to give notification of a time about to end is one of the two key features that made me get this and it's awesome. I wish resuming a countdown was easier if you just need to restart the countdown with the same diration. Having multiple timers would be nice. But very happy with this app and recommend it.

The one downside that I see is that you cannot control the volume of the alarm you set for the timer. Mine plays very loud and it would be great if you adjust it somehow. no fifth star unless there's a way to adjust the volume of the alarm. New update after using it. The alarm doesn't go off now on time. Sometimes it's 30 seconds, sometimes it's 2 minutes late. For this I'm downgrading it since it fails to do it's one sole purpose.

Hi Justin, thanks for the feedback. My app uses the phone's "Alarm" volume channel. It's actually possible to change it using the phone's volume buttons while the app is visible, or from Android's volume settings. The second issue can be fixed by excluding the app from Android's battery optimisation (Android's battery settings).

Great visual timer that is easy to use. I use it with my students with special needs to maintain schedules and transition. I also love it for kitchen and other personal use; great ability to do other things and see the transparent smaller clock on the screen. Thank you.
