Runner’s Interval Timer 1.5 was released a few weeks ago. It contains a few new features worth mentioning.
The most exciting new feature is the music playback controls that were added to the bottom of the interval timer screen, as show below.
These playback controls make it easy for you to skip tracks, or pause/play your music while working out.
The second big feature is backgrounding support. Now you can jump out of the application and change music selections or whatever you may need to do, and the interval timer keeps on keeping on. You’ll even hear the interval change sounds while the application is sitting in the background.
Our new video of the application demonstrates the new backgrounding functionality:
Finally, I added one of the features that the great MacLife review suggested. Now there’s a setting that allows you to choose if you want your music to pause when interval change sounds are playing.
I hope you all enjoy the new features, and please do let me know if there’s anything else you’d like to see added to the application.
