    Does your husband like his egg soft and you medium?

    Do you have a dish in the oven, but are doing laundry upstairs?

    Are you a multi-tasker?

    Then I made an app that may be useful for you!

    I called it Time Boss. Time Boss lets you set multiple timers that run in the background.

    It is easy to use:

    tap to start a timer, tap it again to stop it

    hold a timer to change its time or settings

    And it has a bright and clear interface without any unnecessary clutter:


    It is available on Google Play:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.xpresspe.stopwatch

    If you like, please help me improve this app!

    How could this app better help you in the kitchen?

    What should I improve/add?

    Don't be shy and let me know!!

    Well, for me you have to beat Google Now. I can voice set timers and short term alarms, as many as needed as well as location based reminders.

    Thanks for your post (and tip)!

    Indeed, that does sound very useful to me, but somehow I can't get it to work (maybe because I don't run the latest Android version).

    Makes it more difficult for me to compare the 2...

    If you're running a stock Samsung, you'll have their S-Voice stuff loaded by default that can interfere with using Google Now and its voice commands.
