love this thing - the simplicity is great. no extra bells and whistles
Classic Timer that doesn’t keep time! - I loved the interface of this app…I used it nearly every day while timing my students for standardized tests. However, for longer timings, my students pointed out that the timer was about 10 minutes off (for a one-hour test). Then, for the two-hour test, by the time it reached an hour left, it was about 20 minutes behind! I would not purchase this product as it loses time and is therefore untrustworthy! I should get my $$ back because it doesn’t function as promised!

WONDERFUL THAT YOU CAN INSERT SILENCE - If you don't like to have an alarm, its simply wonderful, that you can make an mp3 of, silence, and can insert, that, as your alarm. We don't always need an alarm with our timers. Very nice option
Simple, Effective, With One Particularly Nice Feature - This is a simple app with very few customizable features, but it does it's job well. It even automatically counts up from when the alarm goes off, letting you know how much time has elapsed between when your time is up and when you press "Stop." You can choose your own alarm noises (compatible with iTunes) and, a feature that I like very much, you can choose how many rings it plays when your time is up (i.e. 1, 3, 5,… continuous.) Since I like not having to stop a timer immediately just to get it to stop making noise, this is a feature that I love, and had actually been looking for when trying to find a timer app. Overall, this is a simple timer that does just that, without really anything extra, but with just enough customizable features to make it effective and adaptable.
PAUSES COUNTING DOWN WHEN MAC SLEEPS - This timer is of no use unless you are working actively on your mac. I set it for 60 minutes, turned on some music on iTunes, and settled in for a session of oil painting. The mac goes to sleep after a few minutes, darkening the screen; the music keeps playing. I woke it up a couple times to check on the timer, noticing that it was slipping further and further behind the passage of time indicated on the mac’s clock. After one hour had passed, I checked a last time, and the timer said 36 minutes remained of my original hour. This timer is useless for non-computer tasks. Into the trash she goes.
Volume control needed - This is simple to use and a good price. Unfortunately it lacks a simple volume control. I work with music software where I may need to set my Mac sound level loud volume. I don’t want the timer to be loud though. If this doesn’t bother you, well, it does what it says.
Gets the job done - The timer is very simple and user friendly. There aren't many customizable features as you can only set the ringing sound and the length of that sound. The only flaw is that you can not have more than one timer running at once. It'd be great to see several timers for several tasks.
