We might not notice this, but timers are one of the main reasons why people with ADHD tend not to get things done.

This app completely negates that thinking.

MIN TO GO is an alarm and timer app featuring three pre-alarm notifications. What’s unique about MIN TO GO is that unlike most times and alarms that play different kinds of sounds when the time is up, the app will announce how much time is left at a specific point to inform you of how much time you have left. So instead of a beeping sound that would indicate the end of your time, you will hear something like “10 minutes to go” instead.

Each announcement will start with some pleasant tones, which is then followed by a calm female voice that will immediately tell you how much time is left. You don’t have to open your phone just to see how much time you have left as the remaining minutes will be displayed straight on the app’s icon.

MIN TO GO let’s you focus less on time and more on what you are doing, which is really useful for someone who has tendencies of procrastinating and disorganisation.
