Just like Voice Countdown Timer from the same developer, Flashlight Timer is one of those apps you never knew you needed. It allows you to visualize time by enabling the iPhone’s flash while the timer is counting down. Simply tap one of the timer presets to begin the countdown. You’re able to add additional time to the countdown with a tap, and even adjust the flashlight’s brightness while it’s running. You’ll know time is up when everything goes dark.

You need to time something without constantly checking your phone or watch.
