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.
Missing basic features
Everytime you want to set a timer youi need to click on the arrows intead of allowing manual input (for 30 min, its 30 clicks!!!). And every time it goes to zero it doesnt remember the set period and you need to re-enter. My intention was to use for 30 minutes interval on my work acitivities, but it is impractical in current version (or too annoying).
The other feature, would be the ability to reduce the size of the timer. Why did you make it so big?
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!
