Useless Piece of You Know What

Can only use one single timer at a time. Too few options. The glowing reviews are deceptive.

Not available for a refund. Should be free.

Already uninstalled. What a waste of money!

Hi Cheryl,

I'm sorry to hear that you are disappointed. !Timer does everything that is shown in the description. If there is a feature missing, it is easy to get in touch with me through the app or by emailing me directly at A number of users have contacted me over the years requesting a particular feature and I have often built their request into the next version. The app isn't free because, for a few dollars, I continue to develop the app and I continue to support it. Unlike many free apps, I never abandon my apps. !Timer has been updated many times since it was first introduced in 2014, through multiple versions of macOS and it will continue to be developed and supported. There has never been a charge for a new version.

Please get in touch with how I can improve the app for you. Failing that, please get in touch so I can assist you to get a refund from Apple. My email address is



Simple to use app with nifty features

I LOVE this app! I appreciate the preset timers and also the ability to create your own timer. I also find it fun to use the window where the color changes from green to red in a separate window. I’d put that on a secondary monitor so I could see it. I can think iof several uses for this app. I actually use the three minute and 100minute timers when I’m operating my ham radio. There are a few alert options, too, which is a plus. You can the timer window in full screen mode, too. The font in the timer window is very easy to read.

What would I like to see in the app? The ability to change color schemes and/or the option to add a third color: For instance, yellow. That way it transitions from green to yellow to red. It would also be nice to be able to set when the color transitions should start taking effect. For instance: in a 10-minute timer, the color should start transitioning from green to yellow 50% of the time is left (or at the five-minute mark). The color should transition from yellow to red when 2 minutes is remaining (or after 8 minutes has past). Just a thought. Those times COULD be user-defined or they could be static.

Just a thought. But does the app work as I woule expect? ABSOLUTELY! Is it worth $4.00? To me, YES.

Hi and thanks for the review! When you wrote your review, there was no facility on the App Store for developers to reply - but now there is! Today I released !Timer 2, a free upgrade for all current customers, and I included your idea for user-defined color changes. Just change the theme to "Green to yellow to red" and you can set exactly when !Timer should change the color to solid yellow and then to solid red. For example, you might like !Timer's window to change to yellow at 50% of the timer completion. And 90% for red.

I hope you enjoy the new feature and thanks again for your support! Gavin

My Go-To Timer App.

I loved it before, and love it even more now with the update (control over the window popping up at the end of a cycle). The primary merit of this app., and what sets it apart from others, is its very flexible configurability, especially with time loops. I have several Pomodoro apps, but this is the only one that lets me set intervals precisely as I want to. This is a big deal to me as I need this sort of app. for everything from GTD task management to variable time intervals for gesture drawing to workout timing. Gavin is very responsive and helpful, and stands behind his product. I wish I had this for my iPhone!
