Ratings and Reviews
Super helpful in the kitchen
I cook most weeknights and I find it super useful to have multiple timers running at the same time. It helps me get everything organized and “done” at the same time.
This app accomplishes that beautifully. It’s very easy to create new timers, and the different colors makes it easy to recognize them at a glance. You can also name the timers, which I like to use to remind me of times/temps. For example “chicken @ 350”
Perhaps more importantly, the developer actively updates the app regularly and is super responsive to feedback.
Definitely deserves 5 stars.

Thank you for your kind words! It means the world hearing back from users like this!
Great timer app. I’m often looking for a good timer app as apples timer app is severely lacking!
The developer is very attentive and responsive! Implemented my suggestion very quickly!!! Hurray!

Thank you so much for the kind words! I try 😊
Don’t pay for this app — it doesn’t work.
Frustrating app that takes way longer than feasible just to use. Each time I use, I have to “restore purchase”. The app behaves as if I didn’t pay for pro, so I have to go through the restore process every time.
I emailed the developer about a week ago and no response. If you need multiple timers look elsewhere — this ain’t it.
Developer Response ,
This issue is fixed now. I apologize for the inconvenience this caused.
I did not receive your mail. Could you maybe reach out via Twitter: @abouttimers ? I will make it up to you.
