Apple-iPhone-X-AA-6-840x473

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!

uTime (iOS) 2.3.2 Now Available

utime-icon-launch

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!

Happy Holidays From uApps

uapps-icon-holiday

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!

Happy Holiday,

~Matthew Jagiela (uApps Head)~

2.1 (Current):

uTime 2 Now Available!

utime-icon-launch

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.

What’s New:
2 (Current):
-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!
-New Icon!
-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.

uTime 1.1.1 for OS X Now Available!

uTime App Icon
uTime 1.1.1 is now being pushed to the Mac App Store! Here is the official changelog:

What’s New:

Version 1.1.1(Current):

-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!

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!

Introducing uTime for OS X

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.
