If you are person who just needs to use countdown alerts once in a while, the Timer function in the native Clock app should do a decent job. But for power users, it falls short because there is no way to customise it, store preset timers or to use multiple timers together. And quite predictably, the MultiTimer app helps with just that.
MultiTimer – Free Fast Multiple Countdown Timer with Alarms, is a simple app which lets you create, run and manage up to 12 different timers simultaneously, from your iPhone, iPad or even the latest Apple Watch.
MultiTimer packs a simplistic interface run by just taps and gestures. The home screen is nothing but a set of 6 preset timers waiting to be set into tick-tock. Tap to start a timer, tap again to pause, double tap to reset – as simple as that. And whenever you need multiple countdown alarms, just tap on other timers and it’ll be done.
The best thing is that you can preset and store different timers; like 1 min, 5 min, 40 min or any other countdown you are likely to use frequently, so that it is always a tap away instead of messing around with the selection dials each time.
Another cool feature is that you can name, change the colour and add representative icons to each timer, as visual clues for what you are looking for. So if you are planning to cook something special, set and name all the needed timers beforehand, and tap away with ease while you cook.
Everything you see on MultiTimer app is highly customisable to suit your needs. Even when you are running multiple timers, you can focus on just one using the circle-icon on left top. Also though there are 9 timers on home screen by default, you can change it into grids ranging anywhere between 1 and 12 timers. You can also set the screen to not sleep while you use timers, and for it to show the number of active timers as app badges.
MultiTimer doesn’t have any ads but has an in-app purchase to unlock icons for timers. But thankfully, the developer is generous enough to give away that too for free, if you can share the app on social media. Yeah, we love that, too!
To conclude, MultiTimer – Free Fast Multiple Countdown Timer with Alarms is as powerful as it gets for a countdown app and yet succeeds to keep everything tidy and intuitive. MultiTimer is one of those apps which you don’t know you need, until you use it. And with the free price tag, MultTimer is the best alternative to Apple’s Timer for power users and surely worth checking out.
