Description of App

UltraTimer is the original fully-programmable and customizable interval timer in the AppStore. As a result, it is the most refined and feature-rich interval timer today!

UltraTimer is an easy and convenient way of timing any activity or series of activities. It is now compatible with both iOS 3 and 4.

You can set a single timer or multiple timers, each including series of count-down intervals that run back-to-back. Each interval can be customized to play a different alarm sound from the included library, as well as change the background color for visual feedback.

It is easy to set up intervals for any activity: training (martial arts, boxing, mma, circuit training, interval training, Crossfit, HIIT / HIT, yoga, meditation, exercise, workout, cycling, running, etc), time management for switching between multiple projects, or anything else you can think of.

For a complete workout, you can set up a Timer Group which will play individual timers back to back. Start out with your favorite Warm Up timer, then run through your favorite Training timer, and end with a Stretching timer. UltraTrainer will run you through your full workout automatically.

The included sound library comes with a wide variety of reminder sounds suitable for relaxing timers, high intensity activities, and everything in between. Custom sounds can also be recorded via the microphone; you are not limited to the included sound library.

Exclusive to our products, users can browse the Timer Exchange, a community where people freely exchange timers. Search, browse, and download timers that other users have uploaded. If you want, you can upload your own timers to share with others.

If a friend also owns UltraTimer, you can exchange timers via a Wireless connection, e-mail, or the clipboard to use other methods.

Using UltraTimer with music playing is not a problem. You can begin playing music on the timer screen, pause it, or skip to the next track.

Just a few features in UltraTimer:

  • Timer Exchange community
  • Runs in the background
  • Copy/Paste Intervals and Actions
  • Delayed start time
  • Over 70 included sounds
  • Record your own sounds
  • Large portrait or landscape countdown timer display
  • Help system explains each option on the current screen
  • iPod music playback control lets you pause/play the current track or move to the next track from the countdown timer screen
  • Pause the timer to temporarily halt the activity
  • Timer state is saved if it is interrupted
  • Still runs if screen is locked
  • Intuitive setup

Version 7 is out, I've installed it on my iPod touch 4 running the latest IOS it would support and it crashes as soon as I double tap the app. I don't want to install it on my other device because I need it, my iPhone 6 plus will be here shortly so I'll update you all after I test it when the phone arrives.
