Review by Cape MacMan Dave

Best 99 cents you will ever spend :) - As with other reviewers, we chime in as long-time Tea Timers ourselves and are so happy to have it back on the latest Mac OS. Simple to use, not cluttered, works as advertised... every time! So elegant, it even knows when the sun sets and changes its look accordingly when Big Ben chimes! You may not think you need this, but once you have it, you will wonder how you lived without it, especially if you get busy with email and a thousand other tasks which can take your mind off the outside world. Don't be ticked off at yourself; buy Tea Timer and relax. It's the "chamomile" of applications! Dave D. Sandwich MA

Okay, but could be better - It's true, the app is simple to use and I like how it sits on the taskbar to show you the countdown. The only thing it was missing for me was a pause button, because I've had to step away from the activity I was timing, but couldn't pause the countdown. That would've made it perfect.

The Greatest Timer of all Time! - I used this app years ago and somewhere along the line a MacOS update broke it. So glad to see it in MAS!
