Good so far but NEEDS 'previous runs’ to load to continue from...

I use this for editing client videos to track my edit times while I use ‘Screenshot Timelapse’ app to create a Behind The Scense video of me editing & the MenuTimer shows how long I’ve been working on a particular project. However, I’ve had several crashes & I must restart, the timer does not retain the previous time. Clicking on the previous runs does nothing…it should, for example, allow you to return to that time to continue where I left off. I will easily pay .99 cents for this app with improvements. Thank you!


Perfect for studying and test preparation !

I need to solve test question during a preset period - in my case around 1 min 20 secs per question and analyse the explanation. But if I overrun I need to know the overrun time. Also I prefer to have it always on top and easily control it (reset, start, pause etc). For all of these tasks it is JUST PERFECT. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH !


Dude, its a timer, don’t make me set a date

Please have a mode where I just say how many hours/minutes/seconds I want to countdown from. Setting a date should be an edge case for a timer app - look at the iOS timer app for inspiration.
