You have a task to accomplish and want to manage your time in a effective way?

Then this simple activity timer is the right tool for you. It provides a plain and smoothly integrated timer for your OS X status bar. Choose between time presets (3 minutes, 5 minutes, 25 minutes and 30 minutes) which proved to be perfect intervals for all kind of activities. Or just define your custom intervals together with a custom message you want to see, when the timer has finished. This can be something which is motivating like 'well done, sir. Now take a break.'

For example the "The Pomodoro Technique®" uses 25 minutes as the perfect time interval for accomplish a working task. Just set 25 minutes in the "Activity Timer" and start the counter. You will get a smooth notification directly into your OS X notification center, when the counter has finished. Normally then it's time to take a break.

This is horrible now.


Activity Timer used to be a tiny menubar app – click icon, select duration in the dropdown menu, done. Now it’s taking half my screen with an inefficient fancypants UI.

I’ve chosen this app specifically because it was so minimal. That was its only differentiator. It’s anything but minimal now. And for what? The features seem to be exact the same, just wrapped in a poor UI.

Time to look elsewhere.

Seems ok


I launched the app and didn’t notice the icon it put in the toolbar, so I thought it hadn’t launched. Seems to work fine so far.

I love this minature timer app


So I was looking around, hopeing to find a simple timer app and voila!!! I found the right timer app. Its a great everyday app that has pretty much no bugs.
Over all, great to use and clean.
