Love this app. Gives a countdown to my 3 year old without the distraction of a hidden image and with a more immediate sense that time is passing. I would give this app five stars if it allowed up to 30 minutes as a timer, let you set your own alarm sound separate from that programmed on your phone's settings, and the option to keep the screen on for my child to watch the time pass without my intervention. So, if those aren't issues for you, this is definitely a 5 star app.
Great visual Having the time broken into ten second intervals is great! The two enhancements I'd love to see are 1) an option to kid-proof the pause and reset buttons. And 2) an option to select a different sound than my regular notifications.
Longer time options for more stars We love the visuals of this app. Really clear conceptulisation of the passage of time. We would love to use this for meal times as we have a slow eater but need a 30 minute option to do so. Adding longer times would lead to 5 stars from us.
Excellent!! I have a 3 year old son that's said to have ADHD.. autism spectrum disorder and obsessive compulsive.. It's been.. Trying to say the least struggling with his attitude temper and outbursts.. Until now.. I was recommended a book called 123 magic and it's amazing!! I needed a timer that would get his attention to distract from negative behavior and this is the best!! My only suggestion is that there be different alerts when time is up to choose from since the one in the app isn't really noticeable.
It works great! My daughter loves her "polkadot timer" when eating meals. It helps her manage her time and makes it easier to get things done in the morning and evening. My only suggestion would be to increase the time intervals to go as high as 15 maybe 20 mins.
My kids love this app. It's a great distractor. They go from impatiently whining to quiet and still as they watch it countdown.
