This works really well for my purposes right now. I need multiple timers, and this delivers. My main complaint is that you basically set it as an alarm--you have to choose the exact time of day it'll go off (ie 3pm). I have to set these timers often and sometimes it would be a lot easier if I could just say "in 3 hours and 40 minutes" instead of having to figure out exactly what time it'll be by then. Both options is really ideal. It has an option for "lang" and I have no idea what that refers to. Although, the graphics etc aren't cluttered, but there is something a little unfinished about them. Not sure what the right term would be. Thanks!

Handy little countdown timer -- not perfect because it occasionally quits or fails to launch unexpectedly -- but nevertheless my timer of choice because of its unobtrusiveness. Thanks.

While I note STERNHAMMER's comments I, nevertheless, maintain my opinion of this program.
To give that reviewer the benefit of any doubt I, once again, executed a download. While earlier versions did, indeed, download and perform in a wholly inadequate manner, this particular version fails to function whatsoever!

Contrary to DBRENNAN I think this little application is perfectly respectable and very effective (and I've tried all the titles mentioned). I like the control it affords for easily setting timers seconds, minutes or even years in advance.

It has some quirks and there are refinements needed:
- selecting "Show main window" from the menu bar menu doesn't bring the app to the front which makes it a little pointless.
- the time format can be changed but can't be reset to the "factory default". (In fact I can't seem to restore it at all, maybe after a reboot... or else I'll have to hunt down the prefs file and kill it.)
- it definitely needs an option to suppress the dock icon for long-term use and convenience.
- it would be ideal if the the dock and menu bar icons showed the current time, after all they are clock-like. I realise this wasn't intended as a clock replacement but it's unfortunate that it creates on-screen clocks that are wrong most of the time (i.e. whenever it's not 12:07).

There are far better timer systems. Look at Minuteur, Dock Timer or Until if you want a dock-applied manifestation. Or Tiny Alarm in the
menu bar, otherwise. All, or a combination thereof, knock the crap out of this!

nice and simple, except: why in both dock AND menu bar? at least the option of one or the other!
