"Just astonishingly fun." — John Gruber

I dreamt of a timer I could use every day that would simplify time and make the most of every moment it counted.

Inspired by the simple egg timer, Timer more honestly represents time as a single dimension. No hours or seconds—just minutes. There's nowhere to get lost. Scroll to set. Tap to start. Get back to life.

When time expires, it doesn't stop at 0. Timer flips and begins to count up. This turns out to be pretty useful if you missed the alarm and don't know how much time has elapsed or if you cook and just need another minute without the hassle of setting another timer. Or scroll down to 0, tap, and it becomes a stopwatch ready to measure any length of time.

Next generation user interface designed and built in 3D with animation and sounds inspired by video games.

Time you can read from across the room. Optional setting to keep your screen on during countdowns.

Skins change the whole look and feel of the app. New skins and collaborations every season so you can keep it fresh.

Drop a custom timer on your home screen for fast, one tap access to daily timers for coffee brewing, workouts, and other daily routines.

Timer Application

As the coming days go by, I find myself heavily invested in an application that can truly do it all. After strenuous nights with no avail, I came upon this application at my darkest hour. It gave me the sanction to do whatever pleased me in this blessed universe, and for that it has earned my utmost gratitude and 5 stars.

Amazing Apps!

These apps are wonderful, and in a category of their own, as far as interaction, polish, design, and functionality! They are a joy to use! I use a couple of them every day!

My family uses timers a lot because two of my children are under the age of four and it is the only thing that could help short attention spans focus on short tasks. That said, I had to find an alternative solution because while all the members of my house use the same timer app, this app DOES NOT SUPPORT family sharing for an app purchases, and these numbers can get very high! $15 for life for each member for a timer is a bit steep for our needs

Beautiful app but prohibitively expensive for an entire family.

Really like the concept… not accessible. Photosensitive for seizures.

If you have epilepsy or photosensitivity don’t download this app. I’ve been fooling around with the apps from this developer tonight and I love All of them (accept this one) I’m autistic/have adhd and visuals and audio make things so much more fun and easy to learn for me. I opened this app last out of the four and scrolled a bit to hear the clicking sounds and then set to 1 min to see if the timer would be loud enough to wake me (I’m a very sound sleeper). The numbers immediately started flashing between black and white on my iPad screen and I had the brightness up and had to close the app rapidly. I have photosensitive seizures have already had several in the past month. This is dangerous to put out without a warning.
