I hope everyone who got their iPhone X is enjoying it so far! I am currently waiting for mine to be delivered by the mystical UPS man. Just as a heads up as of right now all uApps applications have been updated to take advantage of the iPhone X’s super retina display. Hope you all enjoy!
Happy iPhone Day!
There are no breaks! Just 4 days after releasing uTime 2 for macOS uTime 2.1 is out for not only Mac but for iOS as well! The official changelog for both platforms below.
– Got rid of the (s) in the countdown text
– uTime macOS now supports fullscreen!
– You can now make the window infinitely bigger. Enjoy!
– The Info screen is also resizable! Make it as big (or small) as you want!
– Added today button to Change Time View to quickly update the picker to the current time.
– Font changes for Change Time View.
-Added support back for OS X 10.10(Yosemite)
– Change to the countdown time (No more (S))!
-(S) is also gone from our countdown widget!
-Added “Today” button for changeTime to get to the current time.
– Redid notifications… 2.0 butchered them for some reason.
– Made “Name Changer” change with dark mode.
– Made “Date Picker” change with dark mode.
-Made changer blur change with dark mode.
-When adding a new timer the default seconds will now be :00 (Can only be changed with uTime macOS)
-Slight UI Changes to iPad.
Also, because uTime 2 for macOS came out 4 days ago here is a link to that (or just look to the post below this)
I hope you enjoy the update and I look forward to bringing more enhancements to the future (maybe Touch Bar support?!).
Back when uTime for OS X (now refered to as macOS) first came out I wrote about how iCloud syncing did not work with macOS Sierra. Shortly after this discovery I filed a bug report with Apple and now that the official release of Sierra is upon us and the feature is still broken I thought it was time for an update on the situation.
The problem is how uTime syncs arrays between devices. Without going into complex details the feature was noted by Apple as being broken and was being looked into. They did not fix it with the release of macOS Sierra which is very disappointing as it renders uTime useless if not being used alongside an iOS device.
However, with the second beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.1 the issue is fixed and iCloud syncs between devices yet again. What this means is that Apple has figured out the problem and the next update to macOS should solve the problem.
I appreciate the patience and I know this is a big problem but it is out of my control unless I want to change both the way the iOS app and macOS app work. If this problem wasn’t fixed with 10.12.1 then I would have probably start to have done.
Thank you for the patience and keep your eye out for macOS updates.

With the arrival of iOS 10 tomorrow I thought it was time to step uTime up a notch! So I am very happy to announce that uTime 2 is now available on the iOS App Store!
One of the biggest things which you can find from this post is that the icon has changed a little bit. Of course it has our little stopwatch and name but the color has changed and it still is a perfect design.
However, if that was the only thing that came with version 2 than that would be a little disapointing so there are a lot of features baked into this update.
-iOS 10 Support
-Today Widget! Now you can see how much time is left by using the today section of notification center! This keeps up to date with iCloud so everything is always up to date!
-If you have a device with 3D Touch Running iOS 10 if you force touch the uTime Icon on the home screen the widget will appear!
-Dark Mode: You can now select if you want UI Elements to be darker.
-Added animations to “change timer” sheet.
-Multiple timer deletion: You can now select multiple timers to delete all at once instead of having to swipe each one individually. Few!
-Info Screen Text Improvements.
That’s right for the first time a uApps app has a widget for notification center (and if you’re running iOS 10 (which you should) on the homescreen itself).
The widget does allow you to move throughout iCloud timers and will be self updating with iCloud Timers.
I am so happy to be able to roll this out the same day iOS 10 launches and I hope all of you enjoy it.
Download uTime for iOS
Just about one week after launching uTime 1.1 into the wild 1.2 is now available to download for your iOS device! uTime 1.2 introduces a bunch of new features to make the app look better than ever and be better for the overall user experience. The official App Store changelog follows:
-Changed label for the current time to add words and months… Looks better!
-Changed countdown label to the same type of format as the current time!
-Added detail text to table views!
-Detail text follows the new formatting for dates.
-Added clear button for the naming text box.
-Added placeholder “Timer Name” for text box.
-Added capitilization for words for textfield input!
The new formatting allows it to be easier than ever to tell when your countdown date is. Along with this it also makes the app look so much neater with the new format being all around where the countdown and current time is. I hope you enjoy this update and there are many more to come.
