    iPad timer app that overrides the auto-lock
    As the title says, I'm looking for an iPad timer app that will stay open regardless of the auto-lock function. Does such a thing exist?

    The built in timer stays on the lock screen in iOS7

    yes, i know that but the problem is the screen shuts off. u can only see the timer if you tap the home button and the lock screen pops up. i want the timer to always be visible, without having to tap the home button

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    I have a third-party app called "FlipTime" that shows the time (with seconds) but overrides the auto-sleep. I often use it to count down things such as time to showtime (20-30 minutes away usually in my case). This may not be of use to you, but it tells me that there must be a third-party timer utility that can do the same thing.

    Minu Timer and Timer+ both do what you want
