Exactly as promised
I like that there are three display options (the status bar, the tea kettle in the dock, and the main display); I enjoy that the display changes color with each reset; I appreciate that the display calculates what time it will be when the timer ends. I am very happy that I can shut off the audio alarm and the flashing is very obvious.
Features I wish it also had: the ability to count up so I could see how long something takes; a preference to keep the display on top of all my other work so I can easily move through various windows and apps without having to go back and pull the timer to the front.
I’m not sure why I’d ever need two timers going at once (cooking several dishes at the same time?) and I thought I would get to have more than one timer going at once when I saw “add a timer”, When I tried to start a 2nd timer, at first I thought the new one simply overrode the first one, but it actually DID have more than one timing!! Little dots at the bottom of the display allows you to toggle between them, and they are different colors so that helps. Then I discovered the tiling button and I can see all the simultaneous timers at once.
I just hope the app will warn me when I am close to needing a battery, and not wait until I am all out! I’m guessing the battery icon will help there, but haven’t used the app enough to see that go down yet.
App purchases does not carry over to multiple devices
Update: I am updating this review because I have the app on two devices. It seems that the app works independently from your apple accounts. That is, I bought the unlimited battery on my laptop but the purchase didn’t carry over to the desktop. I wish the app allowed multiple devices, like Bear and other apps do. I lowered my ratings because of this.
I am writing this review because it will earn me 7 days of free battery, well, it’s almost as if I’m being paid to review this product and I think anyone reading should be aware of that.
I like the app. I haven’t had it for many days yet so I can’t say if I’ll keep using it or not. I have found that other time tracking apps were too buggy or too slow and this one just works. It has several options to tinker around with, but I guess that the one I like the most so far is that it is both an alarm and a time tracker. I sometimes need to countdown and sometimes I need to say “let me know when it’s 4pm so I can switch tasks,” and this red hot kettle does it.
Given the kettle icon, I was hoping that there would be a sound option of a whistling kettle, but alas, not in this version (maybe in the future?).
Does what it says- great little utility
Found this app when looking for a desktop based timer I think originally for cooking/baking. Now am using it to keep track of pace and time when on zoom calls with coaching clients. I love the ease of use and ability to either set an Time Of Day based countdown or time based countdown intuitifely from the same input. The pin to top/corner is key It even stays pinned over a full-screen Zoom call. (which is awesome since you can't see the system bar/clock in fullscreen) Being able to customize tones, amount of time the tone rings at the end and volume is great.
On feature request would be syntax to easily extend a timer. For example- if I had a timer countdown happening and it read 01:00, a minute left and I wanted to quickly add another 5 minutes, I would love to be able to type " 5" or " 5m" in the "Add Timer" box to add 5 minutes to the existing timer in focus vs starting a new timer.
