Ratings and Reviews
Adult ADHD User: Love this app!! Used on iPhone and Mac for years now to help with my ADHD.
I’ve been using this app on my MacBook Pro and iPhone for years, little more than 3, and this is an incredible app!!! AND NOW it runs, not just alerts, on the Apple Watch. Awesome. Am looking forward to future updates that will allow graphical updates of remaining time and/or disk on the watch complication. I’d be more interested in a disk complication update more than a countdown, that would be pretty much the same as the native watchOS timer. In the meantime I’ll make sure with double pressing the crown to see the disk status. Funny how that little disappearing disk has helped me so much over the years.
If you’re an adult with adhd it’s worth a shot to see how you like it. I’ve also liked that the app has the ability to keep from locking the screen while I’m working on a project with the phone out on my desk. But the watch addition has made this even more useful to me. The entire reason I got the Apple Watch was to help speed up AND limit the number of alerts I get in a day to the most important- if you have adhd you’ll completely understand.
Best of luck with this 5-star “As is” app! And I do look forward to the updates mentioned.
Request for feature
The app is incredibly useful and I use the watch app all the time. A few updates would improve my experience so much:
1) In the watch app, please allow the option to customize the timer color. The red and white are a little alarming to look at frequently. If customization option is not feasible at the moment, please change red to a pleasant color (teal, saffron, mint, etc) and the white to black so that it merges with the background
2) Please remove all the other elements from the screen so that only the pie is visible. The clock on top right cannot be removed but changing the modal screen should be able to get rid of the back navigation on top left.
UPDATE 30 Jul 2020
Thanks for the developer response. I understand how to change the timer color now. Please add a feature to change the background color in the Watch app. Thank you!

Aarrgghh! Latest update!
I’ve come to rely on this app for a number of things, but especially doing laundry in my apartment building. (I was so dependent on it, despite wishing I could see time left on the lock screen, I even bought one of their hardware clocks for guest speakers in a group I belong to.) I could have “4th Flr Washer,” “8th Flr Dryer” etc saved as clocks, each running concurrently. When I opened the app after the last update, all my saved clocks had been renamed with generic names. Okay, annoying, but easy to rename back. But I couldn’t get one clock off “paused” so I closed the app and reopened. ALL my pre-set clocks were gone (not even just generically renamed) except for the one running when I’d closed the app! Will keep trying to figure out how to work around these bugs for awhile, this is a plea to the developers to restore the quick set option (go one better and make it possible on *any* clock; that’s most satisfying UX of any such utility app!) and restore the stability and former simplicity of using the app with multiple clocks stored.
(I highly recommend their hardware products, however. That’s sincere, not a bribe to get the app fixed!)
