Fits my needs perfectly!

I do a lot of appointments and meetings, but between them, I need to make use of highly focused intervals of work where it's easy to lose track of time. As someone with ADHD, focus isn't easy - so I don't like having to constantly keep an eye on the time and have that distract me from flow, once I finally achieve it.

This fits the bill perfectly. Sits nicely in the menu bar or on top of my other windows. Typing in times in natural language (e.g., "1:45PM") and having it do the math is the cherry on top. This app shouldn't be free. :)


Easily Distracted

As an adult with ADHD and OCD, I typically turn a simple task like typing a 15 minute memo into an hour long job. Diistractions are also always a problem and a countdown timer helps me maintain my focus on getting one specific task done, while it also helps curb my tendency to rewrite everything over and over!! I’m finding this app really helpful. I tried other timers but I like this one best. It’s a good app. I’ll keep using it. Thanks!

Simple and Works

This is an excellent utility. I needed to give a webinar using a PowerPoint and be able to time the debate segments for different speakers and show on the screen how much time they had left. I tried several utilities and none had the feature of stay on top of whatever other apps were running. It is really easy to use and worked perfectly
