Designed by parents, the Time Our Timer app provides a tool for parents to help implement the well known ‘time-out’ or ‘naughty step/corner’ technique. Based on the model made famous by parental guides such as Supernanny, the Time Out Timer app provides a timer based upon the child’s age. The parent is able to choose between 30 seconds or 1 minute, per year of age for their child, and simply choses the child’s age using the slide bar. Then hit GO. When the timer has completed, the phone will discretely vibrate. This vibration alert will ensure that the child is not aware the timer has gone off and keeps the parent in control. The app remembers the age most recently selected for quick access to the timer and ensures that the phone does not turn off half way through the timer (an issue with other such apps on the app store).
