The Thinking Geek's Pomodor Timer App !

There are more Pomodoro apps available for sale on the App Store than you can shake a rotten tomato at, but Timer is definitely the Thinking Geek's Timer, thanks to a vast array of personalization options, not to mention Automator, Applescript and Calendar integration. Granted, there are no cutesy red tomato graphics going on here, instead you get the minimal, non-distracting beauty of a status menu countdown timer, plus a wide array of alert options -- sounds, text-to-speech, notifications -- that can be easily tailored to your individual preferences.

Best of all, if you're comfortable writing Applescript, you can use Timer as the basis for the same kind of time tracking offered by much more expensive apps, with the added benefit that your workflow is highly-customized to your specific needs. In my case, I use a script that logs BusyCal reminder tasks to a projects calendar via Timer, and my workflow could not be more seamless.

Best Countdown App!

Functionally the best countdown app for the mac.


-Countdown timer in status bar
-Timer never gets covered up by other windows (most timer apps have this problem)
-Allows hot keys
-Easy to use and easy to customize time intervals


-My only problem with the app is that the alarm sound, ticking sound, and voice features are very dated and jarring. You can turn off the ticking and alarm sound, which is nice. However, I subtracted a star because the product would be better if you could customize the notification sounds and voices, or at least have a gradual alert or something more peaceful to choose from (like iphone notifications/alert sounds)

Another cool option for a future update would be to have your screen flash during the last 5 seconds of the countdown. Someone should make that feature :) But overall, great app! And better than the other timers I saw on the app store.

My Favorite Work Focus Timer

This timer is excellent. I love being able to specify the notification messages as well as voice prompts, i.e. “Five minutes remaining” or whatever else I want it to say. The only changes I would like to have are:

1. When the timer is complete, the ‘time remaining’ display in the menu bar should remain at 00:00. Instead it resets to the default timer amount, making me think it is still running which is quite annoying.
2. The ability to choose my own sounds for completion alarm and ticking sound as they are quite generic and harsh.

Other than that this is my favorite app for creating timed focus sessions (and I have tried many).
