Awhile ago, I was looking for a timer application for my Mac which would provide a reminder when a specified period of time had passed, such as a reminder to add the fabric softener to the wash. I checked out such several applications until I stumbled upon TTimer (the concept of the program is to time the brewing of tea). When a specific time period has passed, an acoustic alarm plays and a message box displays informing you that the time period is over.
What I especially like about TTimer, is that you can have multiple alarms going at the same time. For instance, you can time a work break, time your laundry and time a pie in the oven all at once. You can also pause and resume a timer, save a time for future use and display all active times in one dialog box.
You can see all of your timers in the TTimer Preferences pane. This is from where you can add new and remove existing timers. You can also add and delete timers from the main timer screen as well as from the menu. I find this quite the versatile little app.
Oh and by the way…it’s free!
