Ratings and Reviews

My best timer ever.


Looking good and works as it says.

Need to improve:
- Please don’t start it even if I set timer. I just want to prepare timers in advance.
- Too much margins around a timer, I want to place my timers at corners of my screen.

Simple. Visually informative and pleasing. Really great!


Great little timer. Not overly complicated and gets the job done.

The way I use it: I have a lot of distractions while I'm trying to work. I use a couple of these timers to set a block of 15-30 minutes (or whatever) of working time. The timer is always in view and seeing a working block of time counting down helps me to focus on the job at hand. Similarly, I set one for breaks so I don't run over. A five minute timer is perfect for checking email and RSS feeds.

Since the timers are visually distinct, I can see adding ones for things like reminding me to get up and away from the computer every hour or to make sure I'm drinking enough water, etc. For the way I work, these are super useful. Glad I saw this reviewed in Macworld.

Not a fan of the visual refresh


The timer now takes up too much room, especially considering the boundary of the Timer widget extends about 30 pixels beyond the actual top of the circular display, so I can’t drag it all the way to the top right of my screen by the OS X clock and now i just hangs out awkwardly about a half inch from my menu bar. The subtle “beating” of the yellow background of the timer is also distracting, the movement constantly sticks out at the corner of vision.

This might seem like nit-picking, but the whole reason I chose this app, compared to a dozen other timer apps, is how un-intrusive it was so that I could use it as a pomodoro while working, but still keep it visible to remind me when my next break would be. I guess I do appreciate the new options for changing the notification when the alarm time runs out.
