A: On the device, turn the Silent Mode on. (Side Switch)
Q: How can I add a custom sound?
A: There are two ways. Chose one depending where is the sound file located.
* If the sound on your Mac or PC:
1. Connect the device.
2. Open iTunes and select the device.
3. Select File Sharing in the menu.
4. Select the Periodic +.

Q: How to switch the Timer Output Mode?
A: To switch the Output Mode touch the timer display at the top of the screen.

A: Dirty Hands Mode allows to start/cancel the timer by shaking the device. Thus, you don't touch the screen, what can be useful while cooking, for example. The app should be open.

Dear users! I apologise for missing for quite a long time. I was working on another project. Now I finally returned to Periodic Timer.
I received many reports from you about the problem when the timer writes data to Health and Activity apps as if you were exercising. I spend a lot of time trying to find a way to fix it, but it seems to be impossible. We need the Workout Mode to allow Periodic Timer to run in the background, Health records all this data automatically when and the Workout Mode is on. And the data can't be deleted because apps can only write to Health.
