iPad Timer App?

I'm looking for a timer with a few specific functions:

1) MUST HAVE: Huge stopwatch display, ideally I just want the time across the screen. Seems like there's no reason an iPad couldn't replace a wall timer.

2) WANT TO HAVE: a 5-10sec countdown to begin, so I can set the start it and get set when training alone.

3) WOULD LIKE TO HAVE: a programmable round timer function, so I could set different round makers, i.e. Tabata interval, 1min on, 1min off, etc etc.

4) WOULD LOVE TO HAVE: voice command start and stop. But that's probably asking too much.

Any suggestions?

Re: iPad Timer App?

I think this works on iPad. It will not play the sounds though, because that is a web browser restriction from Apple

Re: iPad Timer App?

I used seconds pro. It is pretty good and I was always able to get a timer to work for every interval set I had.The iPad and the timer app are cheaper than a dedicated timer and more useful too. Go figure.

I read your wants. Seconds Pro has all of them. It is easy to find and cost $4.99, you can try it for free and see if you like it too.

I recommend the timer in MyWOD. It can do most of what you're asking for. It makes start and stop sounds, but not voice commands. Otherwise, I think it can do everything else. I use this timer on my iPad when I workout at home. I set in the wall bracket, and away we go!

Re: iPad Timer App?

EDIT - just discovered that Pocket WOD is the new version of iWod I double-tapped on Christopher Walls' post.

I use iWod Fitness on my phone and pad.

Has a standard stopwatch, countdown timer for AMRAPs, interval timer, and adjustable Tabata timer. Loud alerts and start/stop tones.

Also has a library of WODs and lifts, as well as a logbook for both, plus it's linked to the iWod Fitness website.

It was $1.99 and WELL worth every penny.
