Timer app offering 3 timers, inspired by my Maemo 5 (Fremantle) cooktimer creation.

Supports hours/minutes/seconds. Alarms are displayed via the default Sailfish alarm screen. Notes can be added.

Reused some code from harbour-kitchentimer by tanghus and TabaTimer from nightmare.

Thanks for the quick update. Could you possible add support for MyBackup?

ade's picture

Hi Eson,
Will have a look at that later. First I need to fix more of my applications in regard to SFOS 4.0 :-(

eson's picture

Please, take your time.  ;)

ade's picture

Support for My Backup should be added. I omitted the line for the dconf entries as I do not use this in my app. I cannot test it as I do not use My Backup.

eson's picture

Thank you! Much appreciated. I will test asap.

Ygorr's picture

Very useful! best regards and respect to you, please add countdown in way like classic analog clock as in 'edit dishes' tume settings. Not as digital clock. Seems would be nice

ade's picture

That would mean a big design overhaul. If you prefer an analog clock perhaps kitchen-timer is an option.

carmenfdezb's picture

Thanks for the update and happy new year ;)! The app isn't fully translated, I use Spanish language but some text is in English. However, Spanish translation is 100% in Transifex

ade's picture

Happy new year to you too! Some parts indeed lost their translation, that happend to all languages (thanks for noticing). I did a fresh pull from Transifex, now all seems fine.

carmenfdezb's picture

Nice!! Thank you!!

Marold's picture

Thanks for this app :)

eson's picture

Thanks for the note field. Now we know at least one thing this app do better then the clock app.  :-D

eson's picture

May one request a feature?

I know the space is limited, but if you can find room for it, it would be nice to have a column for oven temperatures.  :)

ade's picture

I would like to prevent adding more info on the main screen. As an alternative, I was considering some popup with free text by longpressing an existing button. Will give it more thought.

eson's picture

Ok, thanks. A popup would be great.

ade's picture

Following "edit dishes" you can now enter text (max 4 lines) for a dish.

Once the dish is selected, a note symbol will appear. Clicking on it will show a panel with the text.

In your case, you can put oven temperatures there.

Ingvix's picture

What does this do better than the clock app's timers?

ade's picture

Can't say what's better. In the end it will come down to personal use/preferences/taste.

There is also KitchenTimer. I usually try some similar apps and end up using the one that fits best. If there is no fit to my purpose at all, I occasionally create my own app if possible :-)

eson's picture


Why is there a 20 saved dishes limitation? Could it be removed? I love this app, but I'm also a passionate cook, so it would be very usefull to have unlimited dishes.

Thanks for the good work

ade's picture

The idea was to prevent too much items which could impact performance in a negative way.

My amount of dishes is about 17, so that is also reaching this limit. I removed the limit in the latest upload.

eson's picture

Thanks a lot.  :)

rob_k's picture

Beste Arno,

Dank voor deze fijne app (en voor worldclock.) Gisteren gebruikte ik 'm tijdens een training en bedacht ik een extra feature. De situatie was als volgt:

  • Een oefening van 20 minuten, met een start van 5 minuten en daarna nog een kwartier.
  • Ik heb het opgelost door twee timers tegelijk te starten, dat werkte prima. Mijn voorkeur is slechts een tussensignaal, zonder het alarm uit te hoeven zetten. En ik zit er vlak naast, dus bij het eindsignaal heb ik ook genoeg aan een piepje.
  • Dus zou een van de Settings kunnen zijn dat een signaal slechts 1 x klinkt, of slechts 20 seconden klinkt?
  • Een andere optie is een tussensignaal aan een gerecht hangen, bijvoorbeeld bij brood 5 minuten na de start de stoombak uit de oven halen.

Ik heb geen idee wat er kan en of je zin in een verbouwing hebt ;)

Hartelijk dank, Rob

Hoi Rob,

er zijn diverse workout apps, zoals TabaTimer. Mogelijk zijn die geschikter voor trainingsprogramma's?
In mijn N900 versie van cooktimer kun je wel tussen-alarmen zetten, maar die optie zit inderdaad niet in de SFOS versie.
Momenteel gebruik voor een alarm het "standaard" Jolla alarm scherm, waar ik weinig tot niets aan kan tweaken.
Later wil ik hier wel verder naar kijken, want dat zal een flinke klus zijn. Momenteel ben ik met landscape support bezig, wat mij voor de toekomstige tablet versie wel wenselijk lijkt.

casanunda's picture

Great app! I'm using it every morning for cooking my tea!

I can even impress my girlfriend with it as she has not yet found any app like this for her android phone :-)

eson's picture

Excellent app! I find my self using it all the time. :)

Any chance of native language support?

ade's picture

Native language support could be added. I included it in my N900 Fremantle version, but there was no real interest in translating.
So I am a bit in doubt to include it again (especially because my own native language is not officially supported).
For starters I will make the relevant strings itself translatable.

eson's picture

Ok, thanks! I think there is quite a lot of interest in translating apps on Sailfish platform. I've translated many of them my self, and of cource I'll translate cooktimer into Swedish, as soon as possible.

Mariusmssj's picture

Would there be a way to see the name of the dish in the cover view? I can see 3 times but don't know which one is for which dish. I have no idea how you would put it there as there aren't much space. But it's just a suggestion

ade's picture

I will have a look at this.

And thanks for the earlier positive comments BTW.

Mariusmssj's picture

Love the update and thanks for adding cover view :D Going to bake a cake now!
