GIVEAWAY: iPhone app “Take 10” for Stage Managers!

Today, we have a special treat for you — a GIVEAWAY!

We are giving away one free copy of the iPhone/iPad app “Take 10” for Stage Managers, normally $14.99 in the iTunes store.

This app is a timer app specifically geared towards AEA Stage Managers to help them keep track of when the next break is. It’s billed as:

“Take 10!” helps professional Stage Managers keep track of Equity breaks during rehearsals making it simple to answer the age-old question “How long ’till our next break?”.

Features:
• Displays the time of the next 5 and 10 minute break
• Displays the amount of time remaining before a break is required
• Supports starting a 5 or 10 minute break at any time
• Displays a countdown of time remaining during a break
• Vibrates the device indicating a break is required instead of disrupting the rehearsal with sound.
• Vibrates to notify you when a break is over.

By simply tapping a button, “Take 10” displays what time the company is due for its next 5 or 10 minute break. Countdown clocks are displayed inline, making it simple to answer the age-old question “How long ’till our next break?”.

Created by AEA Stage Manager Mark A. Stys.

    I’m currently in tech for a 90 minute adaptation of As You Like It as my thesis production, and the Take 10 app would allow me to forego the awful stopwatch/timer workaround with ads that block the buttons I currently use. Yikes.

    This app would be useful for any show that I’m working on, most recently an adaptation of The Velveteen Rabbit

    I am currently getting ready to go into repertory this summer and will be production stage manager plus lighting designer. This will help me keep track of where we are at throughout rehearsals.
