[prMac.com] Valdemarsvik, Sweden - Vivendo Software today is thrilled to announce a new timer/stopwatch app called VersaTimer. As the name implies, this timer app is very versatile and offer many ways to customize the timer for specific needs. The unique rule system makes this app different from similar timer apps.
At the basic level, it works as a simple timer or stopwatch. In timer mode it can be set to play a sound when the timer reaches zero. You can also add an interval sound that will be played at a certain interval, like every minute. There are a selection of sounds to choose from, ranging from beep-sounds to alarms and fanfares. Instead of the sounds, the time that is left (or has passed) can be announced with speech.
At the most complex level the rule system comes in play and up to five rules can be defined. Each rule can play a different sound (or announce the time left/passed) at different intervals. Using rules, you can "build" the timer functionality that you need. You can for example have a timer that plays a sound every minute, then a different sound every 15 seconds for the last minute, and finally count down the last seconds from ten to one.
Timer settings and rules can be saved to a timer profile, and there is no limit to how many timer profiles you can save. Other functions are the repeat mode, where the timer will repeat the cycle once it reaches zero, and the "shake to start/stop" option, where the timer can be started or stopped by shaking your device - could be convenient when your hands are busy with other things.
VersaTimer works very well as a game timer - you can for example use it in Diplomacy tournaments, where each player has a limited amount of time for each move and needs to be reminded that his or her time soon will be up. It's is also the ideal sports timer for sport events, for example when you need to release a runner every minute, with audible signals the last ten seconds of every minute.
