What’s New

Version 1.1

This new version introduces quite a few new features:

- Apple Watch app! Your complete timer list is now available on your wrist. Timers can be started, paused and stopped from the Apple Watch.

- iCloud sync! Preferences and timers now sync with iCloud and stay up-to-date on all your devices. Note that starting a timer on one device will not start the timer on the others. All other timer settings will sync, however. iCloud sync can be turned off in the preferences.

Many options are available, such as starting/pausing/stopping, editing, deleting and creating new timers. Visit for the complete list.

- Pause timers! Long tap on a timer to pause. This works on the main timer list, on the notification center and on the big timer view.

- Multiple alerts! A timer can now play a sound and show an alert more than once after completion. The exact number of times an alert is shown can be set when editing a timer.

Almost Perfect

This timer is almost everything I want in a timer app. Custom colors, clean, simple, intuitive interface...but it has one very critical flaw. When a timer ends the sound only fires ONCE. One little chirp or quip and that's it. If you missed it? Too bad.

Seriously. If the dev can make the option to have the sound be continuous once the timer ends I would give this 5 stars. As it stands I have to look elsewhere. I can't afford to miss a timer simply because I missed the 1.5 sec sound bit. Such a disappointment.

Doesn't work!!!

I would like a refund.

update: I can't get it to work for any setting.

original review:
I am looking for an app that can make a sound after 6 seconds, wait 1 second, and run the same timer again.

I set up a timer to do this in your settings but it just keeps running a timer. No repeating, really no impact from my settings.


I went back to try a simpler timer: 2 minutes, no repeat. That didn't work either! No sound, it just kept going when it hit 2 minutes! I set a sound in the preferences and checked to make sure the phone's sound was on. I tried setting it to count forwards or count backwards. In the backwards setting the times just go negative when it passes zero. No sound, no result when the timer finished.

Waste of time, this app DOES NOT WORK.

Good, but not Great

What I like:
Set & save multiple timers
Timers can run concurrently
Count up to target time or count down
Looks nice

What I dislike:
Roller controls for selecting time... just give me a number pad, please
Alert box on time-out... the controls are too small for accurate response in a fast-paced setting
Limited alert tones, can't disable vibrate
