Description of App
Cooking and would like to set a timer, but your hands are dirty?
Can't see the time remaining because the font is too small?
VOTimer is a countdown timer with big buttons and clear font. You can even set and launch the timer with a voice command in plain English.
With an iPhone you can silence and pause the alarm using the proximity sensor.
VOTimer is ideal for low vision users and is fully VoiceOver friendly.
Make audio handling meeting friendly: VoiceOver is kept in headphones instead of using
Added configuration option to sound alarm through speakers even when headphones are connected. So now alarm also can go just to headphones.
Added configuration option making proximity sensor usage optional.
Votimer is now FREE!
This APP. is now FREE with longer timer features
I wonder if this app is necessary
SIRI will do a lot of what this app does. And, I think that, by using Siri, you can set a timer for hours, minutes, and seconds, although I could be mistaken. So, what are the advantages of this timer app for a totally blind user? Thanks.
I think for one thing if you
I think for one thing if you are off line or have an ipod which uses only wifi and if you don't have wifi, siri will not work. This could be another way to set a timmer.
Blessings and happy Thursday.
It says the app is frree but.
A post says the app is free but when I look it's a payed app.
I'd not use this app myself, yet, since I don't need it and siri can set timers for me, if I have to. But maybe when I move out, I'll give it a go since I'll be learning how to cook.
Yep, still shows up as a paid app
This is still a paid app, at least as of yesterday, January 08, 2014. There are both paid and free versions. The free version only allows one sound to be played, to get more, you have to buy the paid one. But if Siri can set this up, I don't really see much of a use for it. if you have an iDevice that doesn't have Siri, though, and some folks do, this might come in handy.
Or as I pointed out, if you
Or as I pointed out, if you are in air plain mode, you cannot se siri, like if you are, well, on a plane.
Moreover, in order for siri to be hands free, your phone would need to be plugged in. Though I've never used this app, from the description, it appears that the app can be used hands free even if the phone is unplugged making it more advantageous than siri.
