Flip's Timer


Flip's Timer is a visual way to understand time. To set the timer, simply drag the handle around the circle to the desired time, or tap the screen to run the entire timer. The disk diminishes as time elapses until completely gone and time is up! The design is as simple and clean as possible to eliminate distractions and facilitate comprehension of time.

I wrote the timer to help my son (Flip), who has developmental delay, and am happy to share it with you for FREE with NO ADS. It is modeled after visual timers used to assist children with sensory disorders. As such, it is extremely effective in many situations, helping children to cope with transitions from one activity to another. But, many people use it for a very simple kitchen timer! You can choose from several preferences like an audible alert, the duration of an entire rotation, and whether or not to display the time remaining in numeric format.

We hope you enjoy this simple, yet very effective tool!

Just what I was looking for! Update - the changes/fixes work perfectly!! Thank you so much! This app is top rate! Original review 02/24/14 - I was looking for a simple, (free) app that I could use to visually help keep my daughter focused on her studies. This app is just what I was looking for! My only beef with it (and the reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars), is that the timer sound does not go off, if my device's screen has turned off - despite the time running out. Also the time selector is super sensitive and easy to bump.

Excellent features! Update 3/28: Timer works exactly as it should - thank you! I want to love this app, and I'm sure I will when I can turn off the alarm. I have to turn off my Asus Transformer to stop the sound. I'll update my rating when we get this straightened out. 3/17 update: now there is no sound at all :-(

Love it! Great app, perfect for my special needs son. Teaches the concept of time and helps him prepare for transitions.

Great timer for my classroom This timer is exactly what I needed. Hoping that it might be released for the windows environment as well.
