What it is: a 'nighttime' music timer with extra features.

What you do with it: configure the options (time limit, music, visuals) and start the timer. Depending on the configuration it will play the sounds/songs included in the app or play the music from the Music Library on the device, while displaying the visuals and gradually dimming the screen, helping the child to calm down and fall asleep. Additional 'count the flying cows' activity (touch the cow to make it jump over the moon).

What we liked: the concept of combining visuals and music/sounds with the timer function. Enhances the built-in timer in the device. Lot's of useful configuration options (e.g. an option to configure the timer separately for visuals and dimming of the screen and music). The portrait mode useful when the device is used in a docking station.

What we didn't like: just 3 animals, the 'counting cows' activity is very simple (why no 'autoplay' function?) and the cow moves too fast. Configuring the options could be more user-friendly (or even kid-friendly for older kids, who could be able to do it on their own). The remaining time is not displayed when the timer is activated (even as an option for parents). Does not support playlists or albums (plays just one song from the Library).
