Whimsical, simple, practical
I have been looking for a (free) simple timer for Mac for years and years. My workload is so immense and scattered, with so many clients, it is best approached in hour-long chunks. Many lackluster products have come and gone from my desktop. This ap's combination of fun graphics and the feature that allows various behaviors when the time is up--notably starting or stopping iTunes--has made it a surprise champion among the other underachieving products in my personal timer championship. If they were to improve it, I'd suggest making it possible to set a time (30 minutes) without clicking 30 times.
That said, this product's minimal features are a bit of a virtue. I don't waste too much time trying to fine-tune the preferences, as it has only three.
I'm not a fan of the whole "bomb person" thing, but the app works great and the "Alert 2" sound is a hoot. I also like that the alert can be set to play a song from iTunes when time runs out. Thanks for making it free!
The only thing keeping this app from getting a five star rating is the inability to click and hold to advance the time. A small issue, but is the only issue found. Keep up the good work.
