Timer for Rehearsal/Live: Fin

Joseph Cieplinski

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 you specify. (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 custom 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 tap on the screen. Adding or subtracting time is as simple as a swipe, or tracing a circle with your finger. Swipe with two fingers to double or half your time. 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 have the timer count up or down, depending on your preference. 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.
