App Review: TimesUp

Here's a simple but productive app. It's called TimesUp. It's a pretty simple timer. So why would I make a big deal out of it?

The teachers in our district all have access to Airserver to mirror their iPads. One hiccup with Airserver is that not every app works perfectly while being mirrored. Some apps will show video but no audio. For timer apps, it's important to be able to hear the timer.

TimesUp offers two important features. First, it gives a visual display of how much time is left. It's not obtrusive or distracting. Just a simple green bar that moves down the screen. Second, you can hear the timer go off while you are mirroring the display. 

Simple enough.
