Frequently Asked Questions

What exams does this app support?

The app supports all of Magoosh’s exam products: GRE, GMAT, SAT, ACT, LSAT, MCAT, TOEFL, IELTS. All users will also have access to the General Study option, which is a 25 minutes interval, and which they can use for any study or work session.

Is it free?

Yes! Using the app is 100% free

How does the timer work?

The timer will countdown the time in the exam section that you select. It will also show which question you should be on so that you stay on-pace to finish the section in time. The timer will also run when the app goes into the background. This way, you can study using other apps, books or websites while continuing to user the timer.

How does the question count work?

The question count increases at a regular interval so that the user knows about how long to spend on any one question. The question counter is intended to help with pacing, but you can choose to spend more, or less, time on any one question.

How can I help?

Thanks for asking! One of the best ways to help is to share a review on the App Store. You can do this by going to the Study Timer app in iTunes and then selecting "Reviews"> "Write a Review" > and then entering your Apple credentials. You can also share the app with friends who are also studying for exams or who love new tools to help them focus!

Why a timer app?

From over 8 years of helping students prepare for exams, we know that time management can be one of the biggest challenges. That is why we created this free Study Timer app, which is the perfect complement to any study session, be it online or offline.

Why is there an option to take a break?

The app is based on the pomodoro technique: 25 minutes focusing and 5 minutes taking a break. This technique has been proven to improve overall productivity. We decided to include the 5 minute break as an option in the app to encourage students to rest so that they could build up their study endurance.

Which exams will I see?

When you first launch the app, you will see a survey which asks “Have you heard of Magoosh before?” and “Are you studying for any of these standardized tests?”. You will only see the exams that you select in response to the second question. If you select “No, but I do want help focusing”, then you will only see the General Study option.

Can I use the timer app if I am not studying for an exam?

Yes! In fact our team at Magoosh has used it to help us focus as we work. You can use an exam section timer or the General Study timer.

I have feedback! Who should I contact?
