SetupTimers

  1. Add your day-to-day RunTimers for all your practical needs (e.g. parking, tooth-brush, eggs, TV program, etc.); there is no limit. The Timers table view lists all your RunTimers.
  2. Add, Edit, Run and Delete timers. Standard operations:
    • Touch top menu right-hand ‘+‘ to add a new timer.
    • Touch the table row right-hand (i) icon to edit the selected row timer time duration.
    • Touch top menu left-hand ‘Edit‘ button to delete one or more timer table rows.
    • Swipe left on the timer table row to delete the selected timer.
    • Touch the timer icon or name to run the timer.
  3. Settings: Select your default  StartTimer and default When Timer Ends Sound (from 40 sound files). Optionally, setup 2  Pre-Alarms for your default StartTimer and ad-hoc QuickTimer. The Pre-Alarms will be triggered based on your preset minutes prior to the StartTimer or QuickTimer end.
  4. The StartTimer, QuickTimer and RunTimer views allow Start/Pause /Resume and Reset.
  5. When StartTimer Pre-Alarm 2 is reached a sound is played and the app icon badge changes to ‘52‘, when Pre-Alarm 1 is reached another sound is played and the app icon badge changes to ‘51‘ and when StartTimer ends the ‘Settings’ default sound is played and the app icon badge changes to ‘50‘ (the ‘5’ denotes ‘S’ in Start).
  6. When QuickTimer Pre-Alarm 2 is reached a sound is played and the app icon badgechanges to ‘42‘, when Pre-Alarm 1 is reached another sound is played and the app icon badge changes to ‘41‘ and when StartTimer ends the ‘Settings’ default sound is played and the app icon badge changes to ‘40‘ (the ‘4’ denotes ‘Q’ in Quick).
  7. When RunTimer ends the ‘Settings’ default sound is played and the app icon badge changes to ‘88‘ (as in coming from a table of multiple timers).
  8. iOS 8 Notificatios Center will show all StartTimer, QuickTimer and RunTimer notifications.

ToolBar

 

There are 4 main tool bar options:

  1. Start: runs the default StartTimer. This timer is pre-set, in ‘Timers’, with your alarm and (optional) pre-alarms in ‘Settings’. The App launches with StartTimer on the ready; just touch “Start’!
  2. Quick: runs the ad-hoc QuickTimer. This timer is set easily and quickly ‘on the fly” with your alarm and (optional) pre-alarms in ‘Settings’. Introduced in V2.0, QuickTimer is a pleasure to use!
  3. Timers: Add, Edit, Run and Delete timers. Standard operations: Touch top menu right-hand ‘+‘ to add a new timer, or top menu left-hand ‘Edit‘ button to delete one or more timer table rows. Touch the table row right-hand icon to edit the selected row timer time duration. Touch the timer icon or name to run the timer. Swipe left on the timer table row to delete the selected timer.
  4. Settings: Select the default StartTimer, set Pre-Alarms 1 and 2 minutes and the default When Timer Ends sound. SoundsPlayer allows you to scroll through the sounds ‘wheel’ and select whichever sound you like to listen to (and set it as default as needed).

Features:

 

  • 8Timer can run up to 3 timers simultaneously; a StartTimer (from Start view), QuickTimer (from Quick view) and a RunTimer (from Timers table view).
  • 8Timer has a default Start Timer feature, with optional 2 Pre-Alarms, so you can use your frequently used timer (e.g. 2 hour parking) immediately upon App launch; just touch Start (1 touch)!
  • From V2.0, 8Timer has an ad-hoc Quick Timer, with pre-set times, plus/minus minute stepper and optional 2 Pre-Alarms, so you can setup and use a new timer easily and quickly upon App launch.
  • 8Timer can also store unlimited RunTimers , of your pre-defined timers presented in a table view, where you can Run any timer (2 touches: select then Start).
  • 8Timer can run any timer (Start, Quick or Run)in foreground (App is on main screen) and/or background (while your iPhone is on Home or Lock screens or you are using another App). You do not need to watch 8Timer; Start, do whatever, and 8Timer will trigger with notifications, sounds and icon badges on your pre-set times (StartTimer/QuickTimer pre-alarm2, pre-alarm1 then end times and the RunTimer end time).

 

Benefits:

 

  • 1 Touch Start of your default StartTimer: Launch app (if not already), touch Start! 8Timer will alert you when the StartTimer ends, and (optionally) on each preset PreAlarm.
  • Quick Ad-Hoc setup and run of QuickTimer. 8Timer will alert you when the QuickTimer ends, and (optionally) on each preset PreAlarm.
  • Comprehensive coverage of all your timing needs due to unlimited timers, where each/any can be run as StartTimer or RunTimer or both simultaneously.
  • Total flexibility as you can add, edit, delete and run new timers effortlessly, and with minimum keystrokes, from a central table view.
  • Real-time Settings updates offer ‘on the fly’ customization; for example: you can change PreAlarms and End Sound while StartTimer or QuickTimer are running.
  • Delight your senses, as well as always be on time, by a range of 40 timer alarm sounds; more planned for future versions.
  • Convenience in ‘gradual’ alarm sequence, using 2 Pre-Alarms, in situations where you need a pre-warning of the imminent end of the timer (e.g. 2 hour parking timer, but you need 20 minutes to walk to the car and drive out of the car park).
  • Simple, intuitive and speed-oriented operations supported by a ‘minimalist by design’ approach. The focus is on design simplicity, not over-crowding the screen with ‘bells and whistles’ (well, QuickTimer does have some ‘bells’!). An elegant design usually fronts a sophisticated and reliable programming within the technical framework.
