While there are plenty of timer and countdown apps available on iOS, Humming Timing looks to make the task of counting down time a bit more fun, or at least personal, by allowing users to create timers using the music in their iTunes library.
Humming Timing offers a no-frills interface, asking users to simply choose their countdown time across three scroll wheels for hours, minutes and seconds. The app then scans the device’s iTunes library for songs with lengths that match, or add up to, the chosen time limit, and begins to play. When the music stops, the timer is complete.
In cases when complete songs don’t perfectly add up to the user’s requested time limit, the app will play a portion of an additional song to even things out. The app allows users to pause the current song, while also pausing the timer, and offers a constant visual reminder for the final song in the playlist so users know when time is almost up.
