Today Timer is a quick and simple timer app, designed to take advantage of the latest and greatest features in iOS 8. The app comes with a companion widget that allows you to easily view how much time is left on your timer through the notification center. From there you can also set the time using a very slim, numeric keyboard, which enables very quick input. Just tap on the hours, minutes, or seconds to set the time. You can also start/stop/pause/reset the timer from the widget.
When you receive an alarm notification, you can drag the notification down to reveal the option to Snooze the alarm, or Restart it. The iPhone app offers the same input options, with the ability to change the alarm sound and the background of the interface.
* Requires an active data or WIFI connection for alarm.
Ratings and Reviews
Good functionality. Bad layout
I'm on the iPhone 6 Plus and the layout of the widget is weird. The timer and buttons are crammed into a rectangle about a third the size of the actual space allowed for the widget. As a result the start and stop buttons are too close together, when there is plenty of space to have them further apart. Aside from that it's five stars.
Took the time to write as the alarm never sounded in the widget not to mention the most basic timer (you can't have more than one present apparently) will request my .99 cents back 1st time ever.
This latest update breaks the whole app! Now all it does is give an error message saying "Unable to schedule background timer" which is USELESS!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
