Visual Task Timer Description
Visual Task Timer - the countdown timer built for public speakers, teachers and students.

- Set a low-time warning to remind you to start wrapping up.

- Overtime clock display can tell you how much extra time you’ve used.
- Siri shortcuts allow you to set and manage your timer from Siri or the Shortcuts app.
- Works great on all sizes of iPhones and iPads.
- Dark and light color themes are easy on the eyes.
- Today widget lets you quickly view your timer from your device's lock screen.
- Fully updated for iOS 13.

Why does the world need another countdown timer app? I’m frequently required to give public speeches or make presentations. I'm also quite nearsighted, which makes it difficult for me to read wall clocks from a distance. As a result, I’ve long sought a simple timer app that I could just set down on a nearby desk or podium to help keep my talks from running too long. No app I could find quite fit the bill. Some are beautiful but difficult to read. Many let my phone’s lock screen blank the display after a few minutes. And as far as I can tell, none provide an option for an audible low-time reminder.

I designed Visual Task Timer to meet my own needs, but I’ve since found that it can serve many other useful functions. Teachers can use it help administer tests. Just prop an iPad up in front of the class, and your students will know exactly how much time remains before “pencils down.” Need to keep a panel of conference presenters on schedule? No need to assign an intern to keep time; let Visual Task Timer do the job. I hope you’ll enjoy using Visual Task Timer as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Visual Task Timer 2.4.0 Update
2019-10-21 Version History
Thank you to everyone who has supported development of Visual Task Timer by contributing to the tip jar, writing App Store reviews, and sending feedback.  Version 2.4.0 takes advantage of some exciting new features in iOS 13.
+ We've added support for automatic light/dark mode. If you're running iOS 13, select "Auto" in the settings panel to sync Visual Task Timer's theme with your system's light/dark theme settings.
+ You can now have the warning time and time up reminder spoken to you. Select "Speak" from the soundscape selection slider in Visual Task Timer's sounds panel.
+ You can now set the countdown time from a "Start Countdown" Siri shortcut. If you ask Siri to start a new timer, Siri will ask you how long you'd like to set it for. You can also set the countdown time in the Shortcuts app. To create a new Siri shortcut, tap the "Siri Shortcuts" button in Visual Task Timer's settings panel.
+ The "Get status" shortcut action will pass information about Visual Task Timer's current state (counting down, paused, etc.) and the countdown time remaining for use by other shortcut actions.
