Excellent concept. The killer feature is the speed and convenience of setting timer. It's one click in the menu bar.

The big bug I've noticed is that the "exact" timer is not exact. It rounds-off minutes to nearest whole minute. So, if you start timing "1 minute exactly" from 11h59:59, the timer rounds off the starting time to 11h59:00. Timer goes off a second later at 12h00:00 instead of 12h00:59!

• Timer starts from the moment you select the duration. After you select the duration a dialogue box pops up to allow you to name the timer. Clicking OK on this dialogue does not start the timer; its already started. Solution to this could be that the clock could animate for 2seconds after the time has been set to make it clear that timer is running.

Takes a bit of getting used to the quirks of the app, but still nice to use.

As a practitioner of the Pomodoro technique, I've always have a timer running through the day. This little app is perfect for it: simple, unobtrusive, quick, and easy.

What a simple and practical interface. It just works as expected. Very useful. No need to rely on my kitchen timer anymore.

I use the free program Alarm Clock 2, and it plays MP3 songs to wake you up as well as the alarm. It also wakes-up from sleep when you need it to work.

Will this small alarm work the same as the other?

Alarm Clock pro is one of the simplest and best of its kind. Has worked flawlessly for me for years and years. Great to see another fan of this brilliant application.


Me too. I love Alarm Clock Pro.

This brilliant, small app saves my life every morning. It reminds me not to surf in the internet to long. Very easy to use. Thank you, developer!

Nice little alarm app!

I'd love to see a visual alert feature instead of just sounds (no pun intended). I would completely miss the alarm if I had turned my sound down for some reason. Growl integration would be ideal, but even just a popup window would be great.

Switched from this to "Pester" because of bugs. However, "Pester" ends up in the dock with a tiny digital countdown clock icon. TinyAlarm ends up in the menu bar, out of the way, with little analog clock icon that I find easier to read. Now, with the bug fixes, "snooze" and user sounds it is again my favorite.

Its is nice little app for short term alarms and is much preferable to clogging up Entourage or iCal with this stuff. Excellent.

Pretty sweet little app. Throw in some Growl support that supports a short custom text message and it'll be perfect.
