Welcome to the home of the best timer for speech and debate.
BigBen Timers are specifically designed for use in the speech and debate community. Rather than buying a $12 kitchen timer that you have to carry around with you just download a BigBen Timer. Available for just $0.99 you will save money and ensure you’ll always have a timer available at tournaments.
* Count up from 00:00 to 99:99 – perfect for timing individual event rounds
* Count down from 99:99 to 00:00 – perfect for timing debate rounds and individual event rounds with specific time limits like impromptu or extemp.
* Beeps three times & vibrates when the timer reaches 00:00 to alert you time is up. Works great on airplane mode to avoid any calls/text sounds during the speech.
* Vibrate on each minute to give you a heads up as a judge or competitor so you can be aware of the time remaining. Perfect for judges who need reminders to give time signals (works on most devices).
* Has a Large Timer to make it easy to see while speaking.
* Timer stays visible throughout the speech – the sleep mode has been disabled so your screen will not go dark - much better than the built-in stopwatch.
* Keeps timing even when you leave the app - check facebook during prep time!
* Handles most common debate formats with helpful presets. All the speeches are listed so just scroll through and click each one to keep on track.
* Beautiful backgrounds & updated ios 8 design.
* Specific iPhone & iPad layouts to look beautiful on all devices
