Cool Times

Time...we either manage it or lose it! Cool Times is a one-stop app that lets you be in control of your schedule with three apps in one: alarms, timers and stopwatches. Set up timers for each dish in a meal, use a stopwatch to record the laps of several swimmers at a swim meet or record the number and frequency of Monarch butterflies as they migrate through your yard. Use a timer to keep up with activities of every student or group of students in your class, or set up an "any-frequency" alarm to keep track of medications -- the uses are endless! The display can be set to discretely chime as a popup banner or fill the screen for easy viewing from across the room. You can use one of the supplied, stock photos for your background image, or accessorize using your own photo! The Cool Times tools keep accurate elapsed time, the alarms remain current even when the app is closed, and you can easily label events and tasks and rearrange the order of tools within each category. Download Cool Times and take charge of your life!

Features:

  • Set up any number of alarms, timers, and stop watches and organize them as you wish
  • Alarms can be configured as Daily, One-time, Weekday, Weekend, Any day, Any frequency
  • Timers and alarms will notify you onscreen and with a repeating chiming sound when they expire, even when the app is not running or your screen is locked
  • Reminders show up on your Start tile or your lock screen
  • Stop watches allow times to be broken up into individual events (such as laps), which you may name as you wish; the stop watch will keep track of event intervals and average interval
  • If the app is running and alarms or timers expire, they will automatically display full-screen so you will notice them more easily, even from across the room
  • Share information with your friends and family -- especially nice for stop watches when you time special events
  • Customize the onscreen appearance to your preference by selecting a background image and a highlight color

this great app is by far my favourite timer/scheduled timer app. great job guys! the one fault I find with it is that the alerts you get on the desktop give you options to "dismiss" or snooze (re-alert in 3 minutes) .. but these options go away if you make any configuration changes to the app. The remaining alert, if closed instead of clicked, automatically causes it to relaunch in 3 minutes. While clicking the alert forces you to switch to the full-screen alarm in the app. The developers must find a way to ensure the initial experience continues after a user sets configuration options, as it is *by far* the better manner of operation.

I am using this at school to keep up with my busy schedule. I like the seemingly endless amount of timers I can set up!

I find this app very helpful to me as a teacher. I use it to time kids on running records, math facts and DRAs. It also works great for different alarms throughout the day and for setting up time for stations. I love that kids can see the time from across the room.

I really like the stop watches and the ability to share them with others. I also use the alarms to help me keep track of what I'm supposed to be doing.
