This works and runs in background. This is better than the usual spamware and dis-functional junk you get on google store. This actually works unlike the other countdown alarm app i tried. This can run in background - The time font is to big for screen in the vertical oriented display mode so it displays the hours and seconds counts as under/over. Time set is not intuitive or perfect but otherwise it's seems usable.
Doesn't have built in sounds. Native Android timer app-better! This app required "notificatios volume" to be turned on which I dont like as it interrupts my activity. Native Android clock has timer with even better functionality and build in sound. And "notifications volume" can be turned all the way down!
Fail. Flat-out does not work for longer time periods. Nothing happens but when I check the phone it shows the "cointdown completed" message. Unreliable for me. Works fine for short countdowns.
Nice and loud Easy to use and since I never hear alarms go off, this one just starts your ring tone quite loudly so you have to turn it off. It's great for me as I need constant reminders.
I love this app it still holds up after all this time. But OK Timer is best I love this app, it still holds up after all this time. Reliable and simple. Great battery usage, only real issue is inability to have multiple times at once, and the ui isn't so hot but is better than some. I tried many, many other timers on Play, and up until now always came back to Countdown Alarm for it's reliability, but have now found OK Timer, and it just works so well, with a gorgeous UI and with multiple timers. It's my new favourite.
Best Countdown Alarm Best of breed. Does what it's meant to extremely well and resists the temptation to add unnecessary bells and whistles. Has just the options that are useful and no more. 5/5
