Thyme is all about helping you make that delicious meal. Whether it´s for yourself, for your family gathering or for that perfect dinner with your best friends, you´re quite likely to need more than one of the burners on your stove. You might use one for sweet potatoes, one for the carrots and one for grandmas epic cranberry sauce. You might even have something juicy sizzling in the oven. This is a quite common scenario in most homes. But setting timers for everything you got cooking in a logic and simple way hasn’t always been that common.

Thyme is a smart kitchen timer app that helps you do exactly this. The app gives you five timers. And they are all layed out like your kitchen stove. Four burners on top and an oven on the front. The intuitive and unobtrusive two-step interface is simple to use and lets you set all the timers you need in a jiffy so you can keep focusing on your food. And when the timer is done, it will simple notify you with a ring-a-ding and a message saying “Your top-right stove just finished!”.

It´s really that simple!
Because fine dining needs fine timing.

The smart and simple UI makes setting new timers super easy.

...kind of an obvious way to make a kitchen timer isn´t it?

You can set the timers for as many hours as your meal needs

When a timer has run out, the app will notify you with an alarm and a notification

Simplicity is the core of Thyme, so we got you covered from the get-go!

Gorgeous and modern UI design that fits right in with iOS

Customer Reviews

notification requirements deal breaker

I've never written an app store review before. Thyme earned a negative review from me for the following:

1. Requires all notification options to be active. I don't allow lock screen notifications for apps like this. Period. Uninstalled due to this "feature upgrade".
2. Alert tones too quiet, uncustomizable.
3. Multiple alarms not customizable. Often one is cooking with an appliance that is not the standard kitchen range.

Not a bad concept, but the refusal to optimize for user experience, coupled with the notification requirement, made this app no longer necessary for me. Shame, because I did use it quite a bit before the last update.

Update screwed App

I have used and loved this app since its' inception. But since the update the app wants too much access to my phone. Really? How can a timer really need to access notifications and location to run a clock??

Deleting a very useful app that I can no longer access because you want to invade my privacy.


Current version requires certain notification settings

You now need sound AND badges AND banner/alerts. Not sure what the point of *needing* Badges and Banners are. If I'm cooking, I am likely not staring at my iDevice...Set the timer for dish #1, move on to dish #2. I do not want to turn on notification abilities I do not care for.

Otherwise, it was a good simple timer app.
