I'm always shocked at how few there are... for example i cannot find one SIMPLE timer widget. i cannot put notes or reminders there, pretty much the only way i would actually find them useful.

maybe they are going to update the widget system along with something similar in ios7? otherwise i would like someone to make a new widget or just tell me where i can find ones that work.

Searching for timer widget on the apple.com website gives me many timer widgets.

Do you want to put notes or reminders on the timer?

A further minute of searching gives me 10KeyTimer (http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/calculate_convert/10keytimer.html), which you can set for any number of minutes or seconds and uses Growl to notify you.

You can browse Apple's Dashboard Widgets here (http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/?r=dbw).

Edit: There's also a plethora of cheap and free timers on the App Store. MenuTimer is a free one that goes in the, you guessed it, menu bar.
