Okay, but could be better

It's true, the app is simple to use and I like how it sits on the taskbar to show you the countdown. The only thing it was missing for me was a pause button, because I've had to step away from the activity I was timing, but couldn't pause the countdown. That would've made it perfect.


Simple and great! LOVE the chime! Perfect! I use this everyday and cannot belive I lived without it! I have used this App for over two years. It is apart of almost everyting I do! From laundry, timed tasks, an extra cooking timer, an of course TEA!

The Greatest Timer of all Time!

I used this app years ago and somewhere along the line a MacOS update broke it. So glad to see it in MAS!
