After a lot of programming and testing I am finally glad to say that uTime 3 for macOS is available on the Mac App Store. uTime 3 of course still works perfectly with uTime for iOS which I will say I am slowly developing an update for as well.
With uTime 3 for macOS I wanted to make it more of a computer application and the best way I thought to start off was giving it a great new icon that wasn’t just a mimic of it’s iOS counterpart. The circular icon which is a theme with many macOS apps really looks a lot better than versions in the past and looks absolutely fantastic sitting in the dock.
Along with a new icon macOS also has a built in theme for “Dark Mode” and “Light Mode”. uTime can now detect what your computer is and will adjust the interface accodingly. If you have the “Light Mode” set for macOS then you will see a brighter interface. If you have “Dark Mode” enabled in settings then you will see a darker interface. What’s great is that when you change this option within system settings uTime changes with it with no extra effort on your part.
A smaller but greatly needed addition was that finally internet labels are available in the support view. What this means is that now you can see if you are running the newest version of uTime along with what the newest information from uApps is without having to go searching for it. Everything is in one easy to find place.
A big thing that is in this update is now you can see an approximation of how much time is left for EACH timer in your list. Under the date of when the timer is due, there is a new label that shows the maximum amount of time that is left before that date is here. Of course to save battery and not overload the processor this information is refreshed every 5 minutes, when a change happens with iCloud, or you make a change to a timer within the app (including adding one).
Of course there is also a lot of behind the scenes changes and bug fixes from previous mistakes that aren’t mentioned. Of course uTime 3 is a free update and free download to anyone. uTime 3 for iOS is currently in development and I hope I can get it out soon. For now, enjoy uTime 3 for macOS.

After being somewhat absent for a lot of the Summer Season (in terms of being a college student anyways) I have pushed a small update to uTime. This update adds support for Apple’s new iPad Pro 10.5 inch. Within the update is also a fix for the “Today” widget that hasn’t been working for a few versions (sorry)!
While I’m not going to share details on what there is a lot of things in the pipeline coming. Just keep watching for it!

uTime 2.3.1 and uSurf 5.3.1 are now available for download. Both contain bug fixes but the main thing is that the snow has been removed along with other holiday goodies. Doesn’t seem right to have it snow when the temperature (where I am anyways) is nearing 90 degrees! Enjoy.

There is no slowing down the update train! Nearly a week after launching uTime 2.2.1 for macOS, uTime for both iOS and macOS has a brand new update!
For Mac this brings more of the functionality seen on iOS into the application (the big one being multiple timer deletion!).
For iOS a more simplified interface when dealing with the timer view!
The change-log for macOS:
-Made It So You Can Delete Multiple Timers!
-Hold Command and Select Timers (Leave One Remaining Though) Then Delete!
-Slight Changes To Notification Appearance (In App Notifications)
-Changed The Color Of TouchBar Labels
Happy New Year!
-Combined the edit and delete button in the timer view to one button
-Selecting all timers will change the button to done (There has to be one timer in the list)
-Changed the icon back to normal (Snow will remain falling for a little while though)!
-Small UI Changes
So the change-log might not be massive but there was a lot of work into getting both the iOS version and macOS version to do these things properly (otherwise multiple timer deletion for Mac would have happened at 2.0). However, I am always improving and there will be more updates to show that. Until then thank you for downloading.

Happy New Year 2017!
Happy (late) new year from uApps! To start of our 2017 we start with something small but needed. I decided to update uTime for macOS first this year (as some may have noticed as the update has been out earlier than this post). uTime 2.2.1 brings some slight improvements and removes our holiday icon. Snow however, will be staying for a few more months because it’s still cold and I like the snow falling.
The official changelog for uTime macOS 2.2.1:
Happy New Year 2017:
- When adding a timer the change timer view will automatically appear
- Added touch bar delete timer notification
- Fixed the problem where the delete timer notification view would not appear…
- Fixed issue when adding a new timer it would not directly go to it.
- Removed Holiday Icon (Snow Remains!)
Also a quick note for those running OS X 10.10: I have decided not to release this version for that specific OS as the snow caused some problems with the layout and I cannot fully figure out why/test it in my current state. I will try and bring back support sometime soon but I recommend updating to at least OS X 10.11.
That’s it for this update I hope you enjoy and I am already working on improvements and new features for uTime both on macOS and iOS. Enjoy

It’s the holiday season and as traditon holds it I update all uApps applications to have snow falling throughout the cold weather months. The tradition remains this year with EVERY uApps application getting a holiday update. Enjoy the holidays everyone.
However, uTime gets a little more than just snow falling so I want to highlight them both specifically.
uTime 2.2 macOS:
-Added a holiday icon!
-Added snow falling throughout the App!
-Added support for the MacBook Pro Touch Bar!
-You can now easily add and delete timers with the Touch Bar!
– Touch Bar changes depending on what you are doing within the app.
-Added the ability to sort timers by date!
-When a timer is deleted a window will appear briefly to alert you of deletion.
-If extra loading time is needed on startup the UI will reflect this
and of course uTime 2.2 for iOS:
– Added choice to sort by date
– UI Changes for iPad
– Fixed error on iPad where there was no indication of the countdown date
So macOS gets a little more love but getting the timers to sort by date proved more difficult than I originally thought. Either way these are going to be the last updates of the year so I hope you all enjoy them and the holiday!
