#AppMonday - Time Timer

One of my favorite iOS apps is the Time Timer App.  Based on the physical timer of the same name, it is a great app for any classroom.  The Time Timer app allows you to set a countdown for up to 60 minutes and will slowly make the red portion disappear.  It comes with lots of options, you can set the mode to a clock or the original timer.  You can also set it to play lots of fun sounds when it gets to zero, like a robot, car horn, explosion or a barking dog.  When you set the timer you can set it to go one time, or repeat up to 99 time, you can also hit one button on the screen to repeat the last setting.

One drawback to the app is that the timer does not sound outside of the app.  If you leave the app you get no notification that it ended.  It is also one of the more expensive apps on the app store at $4.99.  The Time Timer works on all iOS devices and is an app I would recommend for any classroom.
