How Much Time Do I Have Left?
It’s a simple question that often lingers in the back of your mind while you’re performing live. A true professional knows how to bring the show to a natural conclusion at just the right moment, but without the benefit of knowing precisely how long you have, you’re at a loss.
Fin was created to solve this problem in the most elegant way possible. Take your iPad, iPhone, or Apple TV, place it somewhere in front of you, and let the timer run as you deliver the best performance of your life. You’ll know when your time is almost up, but no one else will.
Keep Your Performers on Schedule
If you run conferences, toastmasters meetings, or other kinds of live events, you’ll appreciate how well Fin keeps your talent on schedule. Rather than having someone in the front of the room holding up cards for 5 minutes, 2 minutes, and so on, let Fin do the job for you.
Fin will turn the entire background of the screen different colors at warning times specified by your presets. (Yellow, Orange, and Red, or the Toastmasters standard Green, Yellow, and Red.) When time is up, the screen will pulse from red to black and a message will appear, notifying the performer that he or she has now gone over his or her time slot. The audience will never notice, but your performers will get the hint.
Controlled with Simple Gestures
Fin was designed to be used in live situations, whether that be on stage or in the recording studio. Starting or pausing is as simple as a click on the remote. Adding or subtracting time is as simple as a swipe. Even while the timer is running, you can change the amount of time remaining, in case there’s been a sudden change in schedule.
You can choose whether or not to view seconds, or just minutes, remaining.
Great for Rehearsals
If you know how long your time slot is, Fin will help you practice sticking to it. Use Fin during rehearsals to get a good sense of how long you’re going over or under your allotted time. Fin will automatically start an overtime counter once the timer runs out, so you’ll know not only that the presentation is going too long, but also by how much.
*Large numbers that are easy to read from across a room.
*Three visual warnings which change the screen background color. (Any of these three warnings can be switched on or off as you see fit.)
*The option to play warning sounds to alert the performer audibly when time is running out or has run out.
*A message for when the timer runs out.
*Dark and light themes to match your stage conditions.
*An overtime counter that counts up after time is up, so you know exactly how long you’ve gone over. Perfect for rehearsals.
*The ability to hide the second counter, so you only see hours and/or minutes remaining
*12 adjustable presets so you can easily switch between your most needed performance times. Can be customized using your iPhone or iPad by syncing the presets over iCloud.
*Universal purchase gives you access to iPhone/iPad version at no extra cost.
*Need to switch to another app while Fin is running? No problem. Fin will calculate the time even while you’re gone.
