To start a timer, just tap the colored stopwatch beside the timer name on the home screen. Immediately, you'll see three things happen:

  • The timer will begin to pulse
  • The timer will begin counting up
  • Your now indicator on the timeline will change from black to the color of the timer that's running, and a pill will begin to form on the timeline from the time your started this timer.
To stop an entry, simply tap the same circular stopwatch again. If a timer is running, you can switch timers by just tapping on the circular stopwatch  for a different timer and with one tap, Hours TimeLord will end your previous entry and start a new one for you.

Remember, a timer will keep running even when you close or background the application.
