Alternative to NSTimer

I used a NSTimer on one of my apps and eventually switched to a Thread as I could not resolve the occasional stuttering in the animation that I would get, particularly when there was lots of user input happening. I was very happy with the results, which is why I commented in this thread.
If a NSTimer based app does not exhibit any issues I would not suggest changing it.
