MultiTimer is a versatile and easy-to-use countdown and stopwatch timer-app that combines a very elegant user interface and powerful features.
Along with the Pro version, the free version offers you all of the features that make you aware of your tasks and responsibilities.
The app has no garish or banner ads, mess and unnecessary steps - everything is clean, clear and consistent. All interactions with timers reduced to one-touch: Start, Pause, Resume, and Stop.
You can create multiple different timers and customise them by naming, colouring and giving timers their own icons and sounds.
MultiTimer allows you to run and reuse timers for anything what's happening in your regular life: cooking chicken, doing some laundry, cleaning the house, taking a quick break during a busy working day, giving a minute to your favourite book or writing an article, playing chess or timing quizzes, or even carrying out therapeutic treatments.

Fantastic, in a class of its own
I love this app. It’s exactly what I was looking for. I’m so glad someone made it. I like that you can have multiple boards, I like the commands which are basically macros that start stop or pause the various widgets on any of your boards. The commands work across multiple boards. That’s brilliant. The fact that you couldn’t drag and drop widgets from one word to another is also brilliant. I would pay for an in app purchase of being able to upgrade to being able to have one widget live and show up on multiple boards but have one identity. I would also pay for an in app upgrade it to be able to export my settings to Microsoft excel and then tweak them and then re-import them because that would be so much faster for me than clicking through the GUI. Also, I’d love to be able to share my profile across my Apple devices, so I couldn’t have timers running on my iPad and then pick up my iPhone and have that shared event functionality. Also, if you look at a little game called Mekorama, they get their users to create widgets for them for free. You could do that. You could have people create boards for the trendy diets, exercise programs, or whatever, and then upload them to your user forum and let other users download them and that would add tremendous value to your app. This idea would piggyback on top of the import export in excel format. Or CSV is fine too.
Functional & Flexible
I chose this multi-timer app over others because, although it’s nice to have a simple timer that is extremely easy to use, other apps I tried did not have as many kinds of timers or customizable options. I’m a college student, and I love the timer that has multiple stages because it makes it easy to organize & divide a large chunk of time. For instance, if I wanted to keep track of my laundry, I can set a timer with 30 min for washing, and 1 hour for drying. After the first 30 min is done, the timer will automatically stop and wait for me to start it again, so I can put all my clothes in the dryer. I don’t have to make a new timer or reset the timer. The same applies if I want to spend a certain amount of time studying every day. I don’t always have a 3 hour block of time to work, but I do have hours throughout the day, and the stepped timer accommodates for that & remembers my progress. There are a good variety of timers other than the one I describe, so I think this app really has something for everyone. The interface is easy to use once you poke around, it gives you a tutorial when you first enter the app. And all of this is just the free stuff, I haven’t bought the premium version, although I might if I find I need to.

Great app, but…
Like the title says, great app, but…
Great because it does what it says on the tin, and does it well. The interface is quite good, more so when you compare it to other apps that do a similar thing. And I’ve never missed a notification or had the app up and die randomly in the middle of, say, taking a load of sourdough from start to finish.
So why “but…”? I’ve never had the watchOS and iOS apps stay in sync for more than an hour or two. And the watchOS complication often freezes up, or starts sending out duplicate notifications. So much so that I gave up and run MultiTimer on iOS only. Lots of devs says sync using iCloud is hard, so I have to assume that’s true. That said, I’d point each of them to a Drafts as a perfect example of how flawless sync can be. I should be able to start a task on my phone, switch to my watch or laptop and back again without having things go sideways. And I shouldn’t have to jump through hoops like unpairing my watch from my phone or turning iCloud syncing on and off to get it—both of those cost more of my time than a single app is worth, especially when there’s no assurance it’s going to fix the issue.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for the feedback.
In fact, it’s always worked that way.
Widgets, apps on Apple Watch, apps on iPhone are completely different applications that are combined with each other according to certain established rules of interaction between iOS, watchOS, iPadOS.
Again, the connection between the Apple Watch and the iPhone is via Bluetooth and WiFi channels, iCloud is not involved here in any way.
Comparing MultiTimer with another project is somewhat incorrect, since they are completely different projects, even in terms of how much data each of them transmits between devices.
When talking about the Drafts app, developers do not ignore the issue of iCloud and set aside a fair number of lines in their guide, describing how to act if iCloud stops working. Generally the tips are similar to what most developers give out.
There are a number of limitations that cause some discomfort for both developers and users. And we try to minimise them as much as possible.
Thank you for sharing the app, we are always happy to look at the experience of other developers.
