Time Plus App TIMER TREK TimerTrek Go To App Store


TimerTrek is an app that focuses on providing a single countdown timer using futuristic graphics based on the LCARS (Library Computer Access and Retrieval System) concepts introduced in Star Trek: The Next Generation. TimerTrek can be configured in a variety of viewing modes: Full-Screen, Windowed, GigaTimer, and NanoTimer mode. The first two modes have all of the controls available to configure the timer. The second two modes just show the timer. NanoTimer mode uses a view size of 700 x 400 pixels.

Teachers find it useful during exams, to show students how much test time remains. Podcasters/Netcasters use it in their workflow to keep their productions on track, especially those with a propensity to chase untamed ornithoids without justifiable cause.

There are 35 LCARS themes (enhanced with gradients) and 16 Sound FX (including the classic TNG Red Alert) to choose from. Many of the LCARS themes are based on the LCARS colors used in TNG (including the movies), DS9, and Voyager. Other LCARS theme colors are for variety.

When the Countdown Timer fires, it automatically brings the app to focus, so you will never miss an alarm, even when you are running in Silent Mode.

Click one of the seven bars at the bottom of the view to choose how much detail is shown between the brackets.

Click the right bracket to dim/undim the seconds readout.

Click within the fancy brackets to enter GigaTimer Mode, which expands the interior brackets view to full-screen.
