Scientific 7-minute Workout features the following:

✓ Set how long you want the breaks to be; with 5 second breaks at default, the overall exercise is exactly 6 mins 55 seconds (12 30-second exercises and 11 breaks), this can be increased or decreased
✓ Flat UI design, showing all completed exercises above the current exercise, and upcoming exercises directly below it
✓ Option to go back or skip forward to different exercises during the workout by scrolling up and down during the workout and tapping the exercise you want to go to
✓ 2 progress bars, one for the current 30-second exercise and one for the overall 6-minutes of working out (remember, what makes it a 7 minute workout is the breaks in between)
✓ Ability to pause during workout

Pro Features include:

✓ Complete Workout Log, showing you what days you have completed the workout and how many times
✓ Voice commands, telling you when to break and when to start which exercise; useful for if you don't want to look at your phone/tablet while working out

Notice that if you read the science article, it recommends the workout to be completed 2-3 times. This means it is understandable to start out at doing the workout one time through, but eventually you want to move up to at least 2 times through to maximize the effectiveness of the workout.
