Minuteur is an egg timer and a stopwatch. The intention was to have a timer which is simple and immediate in use. Minuteur is also very flexible and extremely configurable. Particular attention has been paid to the ergonomics of the program. The basic functionality of Minuteur is intuitive enough to be used right from the start.
  • To set the timer quickly, type the required delay on the numeric keypad. To set a period of 30 minutes, type 3000 (for 30 minutes, 0 seconds). Type 300000 for 3 hours, or just 30 for 30 seconds. The countdown starts immediately.
  • To set the more...

For some reason 3.5.9 always asks me to register my copy after 21 days, even though I purchased and entered my key a while ago. This is starting to get a little bit annoying. 3.5.6 never forgot my registration.

When using Minuteur, I frequently get this error message: "An exception of class OutOf Bounds Exception was not handled. The application must shut down."
Can't find developer's contact info . His website is in French and I don't parlez vous.

It would be nice if the developer would email registration codes promptly. The software is great but in my case waiting 9 days to receive the registration code is irritating and when I emailed the reply was "I am only a small developer". That may be the case but it only takes minutes to check the PayPay account and respond to customers.

Not impressed with the service but the software does it's job well!

Please, check your Spam folder/filter !

Spamfilters either block mail or they let it pass through. Spamfilters do put mail on hold for 9 days, nor do they add "I'm only a small developer" to incoming mail.

I wonder about the urgency of getting a timer app registered. I was in the throws of Geneforge 5 and the code took 2 days to get to me, I was really anxious about that one. I finally got it and went on to spend too many hours on that game. In the mean time I still had a watch, clock, oven timer, cell phone, etc ... to keep track of the time.
There are many people that may not check there email for days or weeks, I say good for them. Blaming the spam filter is another problem altogether.

No sure why you felt the need to point that out, but I'm still interested to learn what makes your two alternatives "the best".

This program is great, with many features and options to configure for use as a timer and a stopwatch. The support from the developer is outstanding. I encountered a memory error with the PPC version and the developer worked closely with me to quickly find a solution-most impressive! While Minuteur is not free like some timers, it does so much more and is well worth the price.

Alternatively, download the freeware 3-2-1 widget, which is the best timer, or the freeware menu bar Alarm Clock application which contain a timer as well as the best alarm clock.

Since you are posting this as a blanket statement, I'd be interested to know what it is that makes these two applications "the best" for every individual purpose.

For example, how would 3-2-1 be "the best" for someone who needs a stopwatch? And how is Alarm Clock "the best" for anyone who would be interested in some of the features included with Alarm Clock Pro for example?

Alarm Clock also contain a stopwatch.

If you like to keep an eye on time remaining while doing something else, a widget timer is pretty much useless.

4.7.2 does not work on my MacBook Pro running 10.4.8. It starts up and quits immediately. It's a shame too. I enjoyed using the program and then I updated to the newest version and now nothing.

I like the functionality of the application. It works great... but as a programmer myself I have to ask: why in the world is this a 21 MB download? The executable is 10 MB, and the REALBasic runtime libraries make up the rest. Maybe it's time to switch development over to Cocoa?

I see that you've trimmed the latest version down quite a bit!

This is the nicest timer application I have found. It's easy to use and has a very polished interface, yet there's room for improvement.

Recent versions seem to be getting bloated. The application is 21.1 MB -- seems like a lot for a timer.

A more serious complaint is that sometimes instead of playing the alarm sound it puts up a dialog box asking me to locate GrowlHelperApp. I've missed several alarms because of this! (I don't have Growl installed nor is it enabled in Minuteur's prefs.) This wasn't a problem in earlier versions.

For now, I'm sticking with Minuteur, but if something better comes along I'd consider switching.

There's a small problem with the 4.7 Version.

After finishing a countdown the units display (lower left digits) switches to an incomprehensible number. If another countdown is started without quitting and allowed to finish then the display will be correct. It will correctly show the time elapsed since the countdown reached zero.

err...

After posting my previous comment it occurred to me to reset the prefs for the action to take after the countdown reaches zero.

That seems to have cured the problem.
