Introducing uTime 4

Time For Something New

After a summer of developing I am happy to announce uTime 4 is now available to download on the app store. uTime 4 brings numerous improvements including Split View for iPad (FINALLY) and iOS 13 Support!

A new circular ring lets you visualize how much time is left

The home screen for uTime 4 has a new addition: a circular ring. The circular ring will fill up from the most recent load time till your event occurs. It is a fun way to visualize how much time is left until your event. This is just one of the many feature additions and improvements in uTime 4

Here is the official changelog for uTime 4:

4: Big Changes

  • iPhone:
    •  Slide Menu: Now instead of hitting timers and going to a different view the list of timers will just slide in, and by swipping right they will also appear
    •  Search is no longer hidden: instead of having to pull down to get to the search bar it will always be present and ready to use
  • iPad:
    •  Finally you are able to use uTime in Slide Over and Split View multitasking
    • -Using Slide Over and certain instances of Split View will bring in the iPhone interface for a better experience.
  • General:
    •  Added an animation for timers (iPhone 6 and up): The circle! The circle animates based on how much time is left from when you select the timer. It will fill and say solid white when time is done.
    • -Layout Improvements: uTime will work better with all types of screens due to updates on constraints.
    •  iOS 13 Dark Mode: For devices running iOS 13 the slider to toggle has been removed. iOS 13’s dark mode setting is reflected within uTime.
    •  Other iOS 13 Goodies: uTime works with sliding views now! Most notably settings (and for iPhone Modifications!). Grab the top of the view and dismiss them. (13+ Only)
    •  Removed custom WebBrowser with Safari’s default
    • -New version means a new icon!

uTime 4 is on the App Store now as a free update. Happy Downloading!

uTime 3.4 Now Available

uTime 3.4 Brings Back The Today Widget!

With about less than a week to go to WWDC I have made uTime 3.4 available on the app store. 3.4 officially marks the end of the transition of uTime to swift as now every feature has been migrated into Apple’s swift language.

uTime 3.4 brings back the today widget allowing you to see your timers all within the notification today view, or by 3D touching the uTime icon on your home-screen. Every time you open the main app or make a change the widget will update manually or will also update in the background to stay up to date. However with the background updates it is sporadically timed (Apple’s policy not mine) so you may want to open the app if you want it up to date at specific times.

Here is the official change-log:

3.4 Return of The Widget:

  • The today widget is back and redesigned
  • Access the today widget in Notification Center or with supporting iOS devices: 3D touch the uTime icon!
  • Today widget will stay up to date in the background but will manually refresh with you entering the app

You can download uTime 3.4 on the App Store now!
