Customer Reviews

I have been using this for years

I have been using this app for almost 3 years now. I use it daily and it has never let me down. Great timer for my purposes!

Disappointed, a bit of a scam at 2 USD

* Doesn’t bounce in the Dock on my El Capitan (10.11.6) system.
* Only indication (besides one easily missed sound) is a notification toast/popup that disappears after a couple seconds (and so is easily missed)
* Sound is played once, is very very brief, has no option to repeat, and thus is easily missed
* Doesn’t require an acknowledgement that the timer has expired.

The job of a timer app is to notify the fallible human using the computer that it is now time to do (or stop doing) something important. This app fails to esure that the fallible human got the message.

Do not buy unless and until the developer addresses all of the above concerns.
