uTime for OS X 1.1/iOS 1.3 Now Available!

uTime App Icon

Less than a week after launching uTime for OS X there is a new update for both the OS X version and the iOS version of uTime. uTime for iOS and OS X bring much needed improvements and features one would expect from a countdown app. The changelog for uTime for iOS is:

What’s New (iOS):
1.3(Current)
Introducing Notifications! This took a long time to implement, in fact I have been working on this since uTime launched… However I finally found the best way to make it work.
-Notifications will happen with all timers past the current date on startup.
-After adding a new timer you must adjust the countdown time for it to send a notification.
-Notifications work with timers on iCloud!
-Notifications will play the default sound on iOS.
-Notifications are local… They will work even when the device is offline!
-When adding a New Timer it will be added as “New iOS Timer”
-Fixed issue where the app would crash on launch due to array issues.

Along with this the official new name for uTime in the iOS App Store is uTime Universal to go along with our other apps (uFail Universal, uSurf Universal, and now uTime Universal).

However the updates don’t stop with iOS as uTime for OS X’s first update is being pushed along side uTime for iOS!

The changelog for uTime for OS X is as follows:

Version 1.1(Current): (OS X)
-Notifications! Just like the iOS Counterpart Notifications have come to uTime For OS X!
-Notifications will happen with all timers past the current date on startup.
-After adding a new timer you must adjust the countdown time for it to send a notification.
-Notifications work with iCloud Timers!
-Made it so the window is centered on launch(If not resumed).
-Made it so when launching the App it shows on top…
-Fixed issue where app would be a large blank screen on launch…
-Fixed issue where the countdown time would not update.
-App will now quit by hitting the red X!

That’s it for the updates. I know notifications were much needed and I am happy to finally implement them on both iOS and OS X!

Remember as a note you must change the timer after adding one for the notification to fire… This is due to the fact you dont want it to notify you right there when you add it! Changing the time will also change the notification time… Also you must open the App for iCloud timers to notify you on that device!

uTime App Icon

After being in development for as it’s counterpart for iOS, uTime for OS X is now available on the Mac App Store. uTime for OS X brings the simplicity of uTime to the Mac. uTime for OS X supports OS X 10.10 and above!

From the official uTime for OS X App Store Page:

Welcome to uTime for OS X!
Just like the iOS Counterpart uTime for OS X allows you to have a countdown timer to a certain date.
Below you will find labels with information related to uApps and the current version of uTime for OS X. uTime refers to the iOS version while uTime for OS X version refers to this application.
All app updates are served through the Mac App Store.
Auto updates are recommended as they will keep uTime for OS X up to date with but fixes and new features.
uTime for OS X keeps in sync with your iOS devices so the timers on your iPhone or iPad are the same on your mac and vice versa.
uTime for OS X does not need an iOS device to function whatsoever!
uTime for OS X support can be found by hitting the web support button below.

This marks uApps first App for the Mac and I am very excited. Updates for both the iOS version and the OS X version will be regular.

Also there has been added pages specific to our OS X version. uTime OS X/uTime OS X Support.

Please note for iCloud syncing between iOS and OS X you must have uTime 1.2 for iOS.

uTime for OS X does not need iOS to be fully operational, they just work better together!

I am still very new to Mac Development which means there will be numerous updates to the application to change the UI and features. Remember to keep auto-updates on to keep uTime up to date. You can also see version information by hitting info.

A Note on uTime and macOS Beta: In the beta of macOS 10.12 I have found changes made from the Mac will not stay up to date with iCloud. This is not apparant in 10.10 or 10.11. This issue will be adressed when macOS 10.12 is coming closer to deployment.
