TL;DR — Timers are more flexible and powerful; there’s full Siri integration; you can pull up timers full screen and see it from across the room. And there’s belated Dark Mode and Split-screen support.

>> Power to the Timers!

Add steps to timers so that segments will run back to back. Loop the steps several times to cater to your most complex timing needs.

You also have the option to receive multiple alerts after timer expires, so that you don’t forget.

>> Nice to the eye; nice to the ear

Dark Mode support. Dynamic types. More discernible colours. More ringtones to choose from. Power Timer 2.0 looks and sounds better in so many ways.

Enter full screen mode to see a timer in extra large types — you can essentially see the timer from across the room! On the iPad, there’s a more efficient layout and support for split screen.

>> Full Siri integration

As you set up the timer, you can tell Siri to trigger it with a custom voice command, such as “Doing my laundry” or “Brushing my teeth.” Power Timer has been designed to work with as little touching as possible.

If you are looking for more, you can add timer actions into your own shortcuts. It’s easy to create a shortcut that “Start a 20-minute timer when I open Netflix.”

Power Timer is also tapping into iOS system intelligence. Siri will pick up on your patterns of timer usage, and suggest starting certain timers as appropriate.

>> Widgets

Pin a specific timer on your Home Screen with newly added widgets. You can even launch the timer and enter full-screen mode with one tap.

>> And there’s more

We’ve updated the apps to have more and better ringtones, as well as giving you a range of fully vector-based icons so that they look nice and sharp even when scaled up.

There’s also URL Scheme support such as `powertimer://expired` or `powertimer://timer?id=ABCD` to help you integrate Power Timer into your workflow.

Version 2.0 will be requiring iOS and iPadOS 14.

What’s New

Version 2.5

Version 2.5 allows you to bypass Do Not Disturb and your device’s Mute Switch. To continue hearing the ringtone of timer updates, tap the timer and go full screen.

This update also brings numerous bug fixes:
>> When a group was empty, the message might extend beyond the screen. Fixed.
>> Timer or step name was not saved when you tapped “Done” before dismissing the keyboard. Fixed.
>> Playing ringtones would duck your music playing in the background indefinitely until you left the app. Fixed.
>> Timer wouldn’t refresh when operated on by Siri or Shortcuts. Fixed.
>> Shortcut actions of viewing timers might not properly work. Fixed.
>> Haptic feedbacks were not properly added or configured. Fixed.
