Intervals (was Stopwatch) records stopwatch times to a text file so you can see the times in a time-line fashion and open the resulting file with any program that can open or import RTF text files.

The timer in Intervals is based on a 24-hour period, so you can time events lasting longer than 1 hour (as with Stopwatch). You can have several Intervals documents open at one time, but your CPU load and ram may begin to bog down.

Intervals supports the apple remote for starting, stopping, marking time, and resetting the stopwatch.

Intervals also now supports Growl notifications.

The timer portion of this is exactly what I've been looking for- simple, fast, and unlike anything else I've tried, you can reset and keep the timer going from 0 :00 in one click.

I don't use the log window much though, and would like to see an option to hide it and just show the timer.

Thanks for a great little app!

Exactly what I needed! Haven't found a competitor yet.
I totally agree with the comment below, but using the remote is a remarkable idea!
The thing I really regret is that you can't resize the window, so that's not very easy to type notes in real time in a visually controlable way... :-/
I'm planning using it to time events in a show so I'll have to manually write to paper the times together with my notes instead of typping it directly on the mac.

This is a very nice thing to have around. I am using it right now to practice rapid counting of cards, and it serves in the role of timekeeper pretty well.

I have one quibble with the UI. Currently, to start/stop requires the user to press opt-s. This cannot be changed as a preference. When you are using a stopwatch to time tasks down to the hundredths of seconds, it would be far preferable to have the ability to set the spacebar as the start/stop control. ANY non-chorded keystroke, however, would be preferable to a two-key chord. If this program offered a preference that allowed mapping of the start/stop and reset keys, it would be significantly improved.

Indeed, you can use the spacebar, but I agree with your comment considering that the "Mark Times" are marked with Option-M where any single keystroke would be better (Return or Enter would be a good choice as they are not used - if you don't try to edit notes in real time).
Actually, if you edit notes while continuing mark-timing, the shortcuts don't work anymore (while the remote does).

Excellent tiny app. Great for timing show performance times, especially with the text record. Love using the remote.

Very well-produced app, simple and direct. Meets a need where many interval measurements have to be made in sequence, with the results available for later use. (Timing the many rise/fall times of a droplet viewed though a microscope in the Physics classic "Millikan's Oil Drop experiment," for one.)

Neal, Thanks for the prompt response to my suggestion to make the START/STOP toggle button. The above example should tell you why my students need it that simple. "Don't move the mouse; just click to start and stop."

Neal, Great program idea and execution -- simple and direct.

A suggestion: consider merging the START & STOP buttons into a single START/STOP toggle button, as is common in stopwatches. (With appropriate change in appearance, of course.)

Cheers.

Simple but very useful little app. Would be very great for video work, watching a sequence and recording a series of accurate times for adding markers or making edits. Maybe missing help, but easy enough to work out how to record times, ie click M1-10 for each time to be recorded.
