Timer is a free application that allows users to set multiple timers. You can also create multiple widgets. Timer has a straightforward design. Moreover, developers assure us that they will add the stopwatch and count up timer to the app. Users can download Timer only for the Android platform. Unfortunately, developers stopped updating the application a long time ago. The last update was in July 2014, so the application may work incorrectly on the new devices.
Design & Usability 7/10
Timer design is simple. There are only three pages. Each page has a different timer. There are no extra options or settings in the application. You can easily set the time you need by simply clicking on the required numbers. The design of the application is straightforward, and it will be comfortable to use the application.
However, there might be some issues with the app's usability. For example, many users say that the application works incorrectly. Sometimes it may count the time wrong. Moreover, some people say that the application stops working if you let it work on the background. Nevertheless, these problems are not common.
Key Functions 8/10
After you start the application, you will see your timer on the middle of the screen. Above that, you will be able to see three dots. These are the pages of the app. The first page allows you to use a Green timer. The second allows you to use a Blue timer. And the last – a Red timer. You can start these timers whenever you want. The only difference between the pages is the color. Select the timer you like the most and use it.
To set the timer, tap on the numbers, and then swipe with your finger in order to select the time. After that, tap the “Start” button. You can add 15 seconds to your time by pressing the related button. To stop your timer, tap the button that is located at the right side of the screen. If you go to your widgets, you will be able to use the Timer widget. It will show you the timer right on your Home Screen.
Security & App purchases 7/10
The application will ask you about certain permissions: have access to your photo and multimedia files, read your storage, modify or delete the content of your USB storage, etc. As was mentioned, the app has not been updated for a long time. There are no in-app purchases in Timer, but you might see some advertisements while using the application.
We do not recommend you to download Timer because the last update was in July 2014. The app may work incorrectly on many devices because of that. Nevertheless, it provides users with the promised content. It has a simple interface and three timers. You can also use Timer widgets. We hope this Timer review was helpful.
