Best TM timer Have used this Timer 4 TM in meetings, as well as on the lectern during my own speeches and lectures outside of Toastmasters Club meetings. My one wish: it won't work if any time limit is greater than 59 minutes. I have classes that go 3 hours with a 15 min break at 75. So being able to go up to 99 minutes would be useful. A.C.G.
Best-looking timer app I've found, simple elegant interface, clever that the yellow light automatically calculates mid-point between green and red, enables custom time setting to the second, and no ads. I appreciate that. However, the grace period alert doesn't appear to work. I've tried every configuration with the +/- buttons. Red just shines indefinitely after time expiration. Also, I couldn't find the report feature; I don't need it, but was frustrated that it was an advertised feature that doesn't appear to exist. The Speech Timer app by Michael Dobbins is the best timer for my purposes, but Timer4TM has more pleasing look and feel. If I could combine the best features of both along with a grace period chime, that would be a winner. Combined features would include: Color change when grace period expires. Optional chime when grace period expires. Large "G", "Y" and "R" letters displayed in circle so timer works for color-blind users. Custom time settings that can be saved. Option to hide clock so this could be used for contests.
After test driving many apps, this is what I use I experimented with countless other apps designed for TM meetings. This is the one that I found most finished and functional. The only thing I might wish for would be to edit the reports, but that's not really the purpose of this specific tool. What it does, it does very well, being useful both for the time keeper and the speakers.
Great app Works really well as a Toastmasters timer. Flexible enough to work in all meeting situations without being bogged down with unneeded features. This app on a tablet is a very good substitute for a traditional timing light.
Great timer for Toastmaster speeches. I haven't used all of the features but I wish there were someway to see timer status that did not interfere with seeing my speaking notes while I am practicing or speaking. Maybe a small status bar version?
Just what I needed Easier to use than a stopwatch. Love the color & vibration alerts
