Seconds is a programmable interval timer that can be used for many things, from fitness and martial arts, to trumpet practice and sunbathing.
This free version of Seconds provides all the same features as the Seconds Pro other than the ability to save your timers. It's perfect if you wish to evaluate Seconds Pro or you only require one timer (just remember not to exit the timer view or your will lose it).
• LARGE DISPLAY AND COLOR CODING
Seconds boasts a stylish and clear timer display that can easily be read from a distance. You may switch to landscape mode by rotating your device which makes reading the display even easier by increasing the text size to as large as it can be. You can also apply a color to the background of the timer for each interval to provide other visual cues.
• SIMPLE YET POWERFUL
Seconds provides timer wizards to allow you to create timers for common interval training methods. Included so far are wizards for HIIT timers, round timers and circuit training timers. If the wizards don't fit your needs, you are able to build a timer from scratch or you duplicate an existing timer and alter it to your exact requirements. This free version of Seconds will not save your timers.
• SOUND SCHEMES AND TEXT TO SPEECH
Seconds comes with a variety of sound schemes. These range from simple beeps, through to MMA airhorns and boxing bells. For situation where you can't see the screen of your device Seconds can read out the name of the intervals in your timer. This is perfect for circuit training timers.
• SOCIAL AND SHARING
Seconds can update your favourite social networks with a description and link to your timer when it completes. Currently supported are Facebook and Twitter (iOS5 only). Seconds Pro users will be able to import your timers by visiting the timer link and tapping the import button.
• IPOD INTEGRATION
Seconds allows you to play individual tracks, or random tracks from a playlist, during an interval. This has many uses but the original use is to provide different music for the different intensities of a HIIT workout. However, if you'd rather not use this feature you are still able to play the iPod/Music app in the background.
• EXTERNAL DISPLAY
Seconds Free supports displaying timers on an external display via a VGA adapter. This is perfect for personal trainers instructing fitness classes. The external display even shows a URL where the timer can be imported from so participants know where they can get the timer for their own device for when they train alone.
