TapeShow today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Visual 1.0, its new, completely visual countdown timer for iOS devices. Knowing how long you have left is as simple as a glance.
It's not always important to know precisely how long you have left to accomplish a task. It's more important to know when you have a lot of time left and when you have a little time left. In fact, seeing only a precise display of how long you have left, like with a traditional timer, can steal the focus away from the task at hand. Timers should stay out of your way and let you spend your time doing whatever you need to do until time's up.
With Visual, the passage of time is presented beautifully and elegantly through the changing of your screen color. With the default color theme, the time remaining is communicated like traffic lights. Green means you have lots of time left. Yellow means half your time is up. And red means it's time to wrap it up.
Have you ever been gardening, playing a game of basketball, or doing an activity that prevented you from having your phone timer right with you? With Visual, you can easily see the time remaining from a distance.
Use it when you're writing your essay paper, cooking dinner, taking a study break, working out at the gym, proctoring an exam, letting your kids play in the park - any occasion where you don't want to fuss about exact times. Of course, if you find yourself in a situation where you absolutely must know that "14 minutes and 42 seconds" remain, Visual has you covered with an unobtrusive, human readable display of your time remaining at the bottom of the screen.
- Retina-enabled Universal app for iPad and iPhone/iPod touch
- Six color themes to match your mood or the task at hand, including a high contrast theme for color blind users
- Three sound themes to indicate your progress, including tick, midway, and end tones
- Background notifications if you need to multitask
- Low power usage for maximum run time
Visual 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category.
