TimeReminder is a day timer that counts down multiple reminders (up to 64) in the background while you are doing anything else with your iPhone. Each reminder can specify a countdown in hours, minutes and seconds. In addition, a basic timer is provided if you don't wish to launch a background reminder.
You can store a number of reminders as Favorites for those common tasks, like the cooking time for a dish, or the duration of your workout session. This saves you from having to enter the same countdown time every time!
Each reminder can be assigned a particular alarm sound from a choice of a dozen. And if you happen to notice that a particular Favorite is not quite right (say the last cooking time was a bit too short) that's no problem: any part of a Favorite (name, time or alarm sound) can be UPDATED.
TimeReminder also lets you manage existing Favorites or background (Pending) reminders. For instance, if a certain background reminder is no longer relevant (i.e., it turns out you are going to dinner and you don't need to cook that dish) just go to the Manage tab and delete the Pending reminder.
