Impetus Interval Timer user reviews :
This is probably the only app I would actually recommend to my friends. I only installed it a couple days ago and it’s already helped me begin transforming myself by making it very easy to set up a routine and prod me along in a way that is easy to remain focused on. I would ask please move the buttons away from the edge. I’ve hit “Skip” several times when I lift my phone to carry it to the next station. Button location is too easy to accidentally press.
Scriptable interval timer that allows multiple series with varying number of repetitions. Interface is a bit awkward and not in line with android guidelines imho.
Been using this app for a couple of years. It’s easy to program and very reliable. Good for HIIT sessions and more.
When you put the volume control icon back on the timer face also please separate the volume controls for the workout and count down timers like they used to be when it had the little bell icon at the top for the volume control. Removing this has ruined a good timer.
Great app. No ads. Extremely configurable; I currently use it for the Couch to 5K training program and I can easily configure sets for the program. It can be set up to speak the name and number of the set, for example “*3 warning beeps* Run 2” for the second repeat of the Run segment. It works flawlessly with the default Google music app, lowering the volume of the music for the alert. My only suggestion is to make the “Start workout” button more obvious – on my phone there is just a message to make the app full-screen which you have to tap to get to the Start button.
App is great and flexible. The only downside are a few old bugs, like not immediately quiting while showing empty background of the app, and some weirdness I noticed recently when the timer is running the digits gradually and slowly getting smaller until they are barely visible (you have to look at phone no more than three feet away, otherwise it’s so small to see). The digits shrinking could be related to font issues, but it’s kinda strange. If devs could resolve these issues, it would be neat.
All in all amazingly program. Works out of the box. For this I’d give 5 stars IF it had a few more configurable options. Wish more control over sounds on timers. Countdown timer I wish to only countdown before next WORK session. I don’t want the countdown for the rest. Also I wish the possibility to have some sounds completely off. But if you select “none” at the custom settings it reverts back to default instead of none.
