Can you make the watch complication a miniature visual timer that reflects the actual timer itself, instead of having to tap on what turns out is just the app logo? That would make this app SO MUCH MORE USEFUL!

I am SO frustrated with this app. The iPhone app is not saving my timers. It is not clear to me how to create multiple timers that I can save. I can set up one timer, but when I try to set up a second and click save, it doesn’t appear in my saved timers. I don’t want to have to set up the same timers over and over again. I searched the support section of their website. The only thing it mentions is SET-BY-TOUCH or SET-WITH-OPTIONS which I can’t even figure out what it is talking about. In the videos it shows double tapping the plus icon at the top of the screen to create customized timers, but I don’t have that option. I searched YouTube for videos as well, but nothing helpful. I had read about the Time Timer in a newsletter I subscribe to for people with ADHD and thought it might be a good tool for me. So far the only thing I want to do is delete the app even though I paid for it. ARGH,

Aarrgghh! Latest update!

I’ve come to rely on this app for a number of things, but especially doing laundry in my apartment building. (I was so dependent on it, despite wishing I could see time left on the lock screen, I even bought one of their hardware clocks for guest speakers in a group I belong to.) I could have “4th Flr Washer,” “8th Flr Dryer” etc saved as clocks, each running concurrently. When I opened the app after the last update, all my saved clocks had been renamed with generic names. Okay, annoying, but easy to rename back. But I couldn’t get one clock off “paused” so I closed the app and reopened. ALL my pre-set clocks were gone (not even just generically renamed) except for the one running when I’d closed the app! Will keep trying to figure out how to work around these bugs for awhile, this is a plea to the developers to restore the quick set option (go one better and make it possible on *any* clock; that’s most satisfying UX of any such utility app!) and restore the stability and former simplicity of using the app with multiple clocks stored.

(I highly recommend their hardware products, however. That’s sincere, not a bribe to get the app fixed!)
