"Jag har just installerat DownTime i min iPod, och den fungerar klanderfritt. Tack för det!" - Erik F

DownTime is nothing more than a large, clearly visible timer, which comes in handy more often than you may think. Nifty features include:


Pretty huge timer.


- The timer countdown continues while you temporarily switch to another application. (The alarm will not start unless DownTime is open, however.)

- Choose between several different color schemes.

- Access your 10 previous timers.

- See a visible flashing alert (and vibration on the iPhone) when the timer runs out.

- New Red on black and Black on red color schemes, for users in light-sensitive environments (e.g. astronomy and photographer's darkrooms).

- Alarm sound. (Can be turned off.)

- View the timer in landscape or portrait mode.

No Flashing White Screen But ...

... I downloaded and installed this app after the flashing white screen issue was corrected. I had hoped to use this as a timer when doing astrophotography. But there are still two issues.

When at a dark site any white light can negatively impact one's night vision. Unfortunately the settings screen for the timer consists mainly of black text on white fields with a black background (with some other white text as well). To make this useful for me there should be a mode that shows all text as red against a black background.

The second issue is also a white light problem. When in timer mode the status bar at the top (signal strength, carrier, time,etc.) is still shown as white text. The status bar should be hidden.

Otherwise the app works as described.

Re: problems

Flashing white when using Black on red color schemes: This is solved in version 1.5.3 (currently in review) by flashing to black instead. Note: the current version is 1.5.1, so this is of course NOT yet fixed in the version you have. iTunes are unfortunately extremely slow in approving updates. The 1.5.3 was submitted to the App Store almost two weeks ago.

Crashes on start: Apple still have some problems with their firmware regarding app installation. Try deleting the app from your iPhone and sync back again to resolve. If that doesn't work, please email our support. We are very keen to resolve especially these critical bugs.

Stratocater: Did the last update solve your problems? We didn't get much to go on from your review.

(I'm the developer of DownTime, so I set a neutral rating of three stars.)
