Windows 8 Timer App To Set Multiple Timers: Timer+

Timer+ is a free Windows 8 timer app that allows you to set and run multiple timers at once. This app is extremely lightweight, but can come very handy if you are multitasking – in fact, it is a boon for people who multitask frequently. Setting timers is as easy as pressing the Add Timer button in the control bar, and setting the time duration for it. You can set as many timers as you wish, and you will be presented with their tiles as you add them in the main screen of the app. You can start or delete timers by right clicking on them and pressing the Start or Delete button in the control bar. You can also pause or stop a started timer by right clicking on a timer and pressing the corresponding action button in the control bar.

Timer+ is available for free from the Windows App Store.
