Happy July! To start of Summer right( at least where I am) I have updated both iOS and macOS versions of uTime! uTime for iOS is now on version 3.1 while uTime for macOS is now on versions 3.0.5! Take a look at the changes below:
uTime 3.1 for iOS:
- Made it so dark mode for the iPad now is on the home screen timer list
- Enabling dark mode will have the dark keyboard appear when changing the timer name
- The return of date sorting: You can now sort timers by date on both macOS and iOS
- Made it so you can slide to delete timers on iPad
- Redesigned the launch screen
- Fixed an issue with memory leaking on iPad
- Fixed an issue on auto layout sometimes not working on the info section of the iPad
uTime 3.0.5 for macOS:
- Sorting by date has returned to both macOS and iOS versions of uTime

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?!).
You didn’t think I forgot about the Mac did you? Of course not! I am happy to announce that after a ton of development and testing uTime 2 for macOS is now available to download!
The biggest change to uTime for macOS is that I redesigned the User Interface.
As shown above our timer view is now permanantly on the side bar of our homepage! This allows quick and easy access to all of your countdown timers. To delete a timer simply select it and hit the delete key on your keyboard! Along with this for smaller screened Macs the view can be resized to better fit your screen!
Also just as a small thing I incorporated Apple’s San Fransisco font which looks very nice throughout the entire application.
Along with this a bunch of mechanics have changed including how timers are changed (a small popover instead of just appearing) along with some color changes to our info screen.
Along with this are a lot of behind the scene changes that will make uTime macOS even better!
This update took so long because I did not want to update it without iCloud syncing working on Sierra.
The full changelog for uTime 2 for macOS:
-New Icon to match the iOS Version – Much cleaner
-Home screen has a new font to make it look cleaner.
-Home screen has the list of timers always visible for easy selection
-Timers are now deleted by hitting the delete key.
-The window’s width can now be resized for smaller screens.
-Change Time/Name is now it’s own view that pops up instead of just appearing.
-Support is now bigger in order to show more information and has the same black blurr as other elements.
-Adding a timer will have the name “New macOS Timer” to reflect rebranding of OSX
-Along with the new font there are multiple changes with the way text is formatted (list and home)
-Download uTime for iOS button works now.
-Changed the order of the buttons for support as closed in the middle was a little weird.
-Fixed issue where notifications would not show up when the timer was synced with iCloud.
-Support for macOS Sierra (10.12)
And here is the updated screenshot gallery for uTime macOS!
uTime 1.1.1 is now being pushed to the Mac App Store! Here is the official changelog:
-Fixed issue where app would launch incorrectly (Blank Screen)
-Fixed issue where the change timer field was incorrect for the current timer.
-Removed web labels due to the fact they were causing more problems… Working on that fix… Check web support for info on the newest version.
So yes the labels have been removed except for what version running because it was producing terrible results and the fixes were more important than the labels. When I figure out the fix then I will add them back.
That’s it for this update. Enjoy!
Download uTime for OS X
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.

Even though both the iOS and OS X developer portals are down for everyone due to a hacker on Thursday morning Apple has released the new OS X 10.9 beta 4 update to developers running OS 10.9. If you are a developer running OS 10.8 and want to upgrade you are out of luck till the developer portal comes back up which could be a while… However if you are running OS X 10.9 just go on the App Store and hit the Updates tab.
Apple even though pushed a new Mavericks update today they took a break from iOS 7 beta 4 from it’s 2 week cycle as we did not see an update today due to the fact the developer site is closed. We could see the update either next week or whenever the portal comes back because there are some crucial bugs that need to be fixed.
Airdrop is a great way to share files between Macs very easily. All you need to do is drag and drop the file and then it is shared if the other user accepts it. It would appear that Airdrop may be making it’s way to iOS 7 that is being revealed next week from today.
Sources say that the AirDrop functionality is currently integrated into the standard iOS share menu. AirDrop will work between two iOS devices and potentially between an iOS device and a Mac. The feature will make it easier than ever to transfer, for example, a photograph or document from one person’s iPhone to another person’s iPad.
While iCloud synchronization works well for sharing photos and documents between two iOS devices owned by the same person, the AirDrop feature will allow seamless individual file exchanges between iOS devices belonging to different people.
This would be great for iOS as it would allow people to share something instantly with no trouble at all. I can’t wait for it and I hope it is true but Apple was rumored to do this last year and scrapped it but I hope they introduce it this year.
WWDC countdown clock is available here and iOS 7 information can be found here including what I want.
