Nice little timer! - I really like the keep on top feature in this little timer. I have it slid into the corner on my screen, out of the way, but clearly visible. I do have two feature requests: 1. I wish I could pause the timer without reseting it. It would be handy for when the phone rings and I have to take a quick break from my work. 2. It could be just a tad smaller, or perhaps resizable. Thanks for your good work on this!

Software no longer runs in Mavericks - I love Minutes, and have relied on it many times, however after running the software since 2011, I am disheartened to see the developer has abandoned the software. After OS X 10.9 was released, I began to see behaviors where i would set the timer, switch over to full screen to work on a keynote document and the alarm would never go off. It turns out many “countdown” timer apps in Maverics have the same issue - they are not properly updating themselves in the background. I have emailed the developer to point this issue out, but since I never heard back from them my only remaining step is to warn others not to use this on OS X 10.9.

My best timer ever. - Looking good and works as it says. Need to improve: - Please don’t start it even if I set timer. I just want to prepare timers in advance. - Too much margins around a timer, I want to place my timers at corners of my screen.
