Simply by rotating the crown!

Swiping up and down doesn't work because we tried it, and the screen was just too damn small. Trust us on this one.

Can I have a different list of saved timers just for the Apple Watch?

Great idea, but managing saved timers on your Apple Watch will be a nightmare.
If there's enough need/ask for it though to have a separate list, we promise we will figure out how to build it into the iPhone app.

Does Timer repeat over and over again?

Yep, that's what we designed it to do.

Why is my Timer notification not vibrating?

We've noticed that if you're wearing an Apple Watch, sometimes the notification gets delivered there instead. We don't have control over this, Apple decides which device to vibrate depending on the circumstances : (

Can I set the time to be more than 60 minutes?


On the iPhone
Tap the time stamp while Timer is paused to manually set it up to 99 hours and 99 minutes and 99 seconds!

On the Apple Watch
Keep scrolling that Crown up up up and way up.
TIP: Incase you did somehow get up to 99 hours and want to set it to something else now, you don't have to scroll down for hours again. Just force touch the screen and you'll see an option to "Clear timer"

Is this XYZ I just saw a bug?

Whatever you just experienced, maybe it is maybe it's not. Give us a shout and let us know!

Sure! Once we figure out the perfect design and the funds to build it..... but definitely send your request our way we love hearing from you!

We didn't think that was an important feature to spend our limited time on... but now that we know someone does want it, we'll put it in the backlog!

Can I make the Timer sound even when my iPhone is on mute?

We thought it'd be a "sure!" but the truth is, we haven't figured out how to achieve this or if it's even possible at all.

Can I add my own alarm sounds?

Yes. One day. Maybe V3.

Will there be a V3?

We sure hope so! Once we've figured out what other awesome improvements we can make, and also come up with the funds for it, we'll definitely build a V3. (So you should go and tell all your friends to suppor Timer. NOW.)
