Activity Timer is a simple to use visual countdown timer for timing single tasks up to 24 hours.

Do you ever get distracted from your tasks or need to make sure you work for a certain amount of time?

Simply swipe the face of the timer to set the length and then press the start button. Activity timer can give you reminders to keep you on track or even play a sound while you are performing your activity.

Quickly see how much time is remaining to motivate you to stay on task. The color of the timer reflects the amount of time left as it changes from Green to Yellow at 2/3 time and then to Red at 1/3 time remaining.

Create a timer for your workout, another for meditation, another for your child's homework and access them all easily from the main screen with a single touch.

Activity Timer will also help those with learning disabilities to understand how much time they have left to complete their activity.

*** If you don't hear alarm sounds, make sure device Notifications are not turned off and that device Alarm volume setting is high enough.***

* Swipe dial to set timer in minutes (from 1 minute to 24 hours)

* Change the timer theme/background
* Create timers and access them instantly
* Play an alarm when the timer is done

***Perfect for teaching kids (and us adults) time management***

If you encounter issues with the app or would like to suggest a change, please use "Report Issue" from inside the app.

The following is an explanation of the permissions used by this app.

FULL NETWORK ACCESS - This allows the app to send crash(app) and issue(user) reports to help capture problems for future improvements.

PHONE CALLS - READ PHONE STATUS AND IDENTITY - This permission allows the app to generate and read a unique device ID so that when sending crash or issue reports, it can be associated with them.

YOUR ACCOUNTS - FIND ACCOUNTS ON THE DEVICE - This permission is used during showing the report issue screen to allow the user to select the email address instead of typing it in. Many past reports were sent with incorrect email addresses that were typed by the user and we were unable to follow up for more information with them. We do not collect the email addresses at any time.

CONTROL VIBRATION - Allows the app to make your device vibrate if chosen at the end of a timer.

NETWORK COMMUNICATION - VIEW NETWORK CONNECTIONS - Allows the app to see if there is a network connection in order to send bug and issue reports.

    Great for use during time out as well in making turn times fair

    I love the concept of this app and if it worked correctly would give it many more stars. But I cannot hear the end alarm at all. Have played with settings. Interval alarms work fine, but the end alarm will not ring, whether the interval alarm is set or not. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a timer if you don't know when time is up unless you are watching it...which means you are likely no

    Indeed I've suffered from the app's bug reviewer Norlimon writes about. I must add it has a problem when you answer a phone call . I mean, I need not only visual, but sound timer also. If timer is silent, I simply do not look at it and the help with time passing sense is lost. But since the app is installed in my phone, I need the sound to stop when I answer a call, it doesn't (WhiteNoise does it

    I work work with kids with autism, and this is a great and convenient visual timer for them. Makes transitions easier, and I've never had a problem with it.

    Extremely basic. No memory between timers. But it's the only app I found so far that comes close to what I need. Feels like a student project.

    I need to tap another timer to run the same length timer again. Sometimes I need to reboot my phone when I run this with other programs.
