Countdown is a configurable countdown timer with extra features especially designed for having fun while the timer is running.
It is possible to define a background music list to play during the countdown action. It is also possible to configure periodical alarms to let you know how much time left, and you can control the volume of the background music and alarms individually.
The application has specific sounds in Spanish and English for periodical alarms (up to 10 minutes). This option can also be disabled and use apple sounds (Glass and Purr) instead.
It is also possible to define profiles to save the background music list and countdown timer settings to use later in other executions of the application.
I use this application every day to do my exercises having a good time listening to good music and knowing how much time left to finish them.

Terrible. - There's a weird countdown when the timer starts during which there's a splash image of the countdown right in the middle of your screen and some accented female voice counts down from 10, you can't type the numbers you want to countdown from (you have to use up and down arrows), and every minute during the countdown there's a ding. Very, very annoying. Don't download.

Absolutely Terrible - This app is really bad! do not get it you will regret it. It has a horrible accented voice that counts down from 10 before the countdown timer starts. Also, when only one minute is left on the timer that same voice says "one minute left" with the same heavy ascent! As Jdog753 sayed you can't type in the number of hours, minutes or seconds you have to use the up and down arrows. also, every minute a extremely annoying bell rigs. If you every get this app I recommend you to mute you volium before you use it!
Can’t even count right! - I set the alarm for 25 minutes, as time passes I keep checking back thinking to myself “wow, it feels like it’s been longer than that” but I don’t question the time since I assume it should be keeping correct account… I soon realize the counter is off. I tested this yet again just now setting another alarm and recording the time it should be going off in regards to actual time- the counter is WAY off. This is a horrible app considering it is meant to account for time correctly- Do NOT use if you want to time things correctly.
Not great, but not as bad as some would lead you to believe - I agree with other comments about having to use up/down arrows to set the time. But the big complaint about the ‘dinging’ every minute can easily be rectified if you know what you’re doing. The default profile is to ring an alarm every minute, true, but if you look at the settings carefully you will find there is a way to change that to other intervals like once an hour (which I currently like) or to disable the alarm entirely. Unfortunately, what I have noticed is that it sometimes loses time and doesn’t keep time accurately. I will set it to count down X number of hours and it will work fine for a few hours but then later in the day I notice that it is “off” by say 45 minutes or something. I can only speculate that this is caused by the application momentarily pausing when in the background or when certain other things are being done on the computer (I haven’t yet discovered a pattern) - an for that reason I am seeking out a different countdown application to see if I can find something better and more reliable. Still, for a “free” application this is not bad. I wouldn’t be willing to pay anything for it though.
Very useful! - I have been using it for more than 2 years, it's a great help for my workflow!
