I am enjoying this app. It first got my attention because I am trying to remember to stretch and move every hour! There is much more to this application than that of course, and well worth the money. The owner is responsive and helpful. Due to my own misunderstanding, I had trouble with something and he helped me right away. Thank you! Vicky

This is exactly what i was looking for to implement a kind of 50/10 minutes work methodology that i've been trying to do on my own. it's simple as an egg timer. really shows what programmers can do to solve their own problems.

I tried the demo, and found it too limited for my needs. Now I have trashed both the app and the installer .dmg file, but it still pops up the annoyance message "It's about time!" And I can't get rid of it. This alone would convince me to not buy the app.

Hello Axegrrl,

I am sorry you found TimeBoxed too limited for your needs.
To be simple is one of the goal of this application. It's a great strength for many users.
I hope you will find on the Mac market an other application that suits you better.

If you see the growl message popping up, it means TimeBoxed is still open.
No background activity or process is created: quitting the app and trashing it is all you need to uninstall it.

If you still need help, please get in touch with the support. I will be happy to help you.

This is a great little application. It's polished, attractive, and provides a sophisticated but unobtrusive way of segmenting your working day into manageable chunks - the better to motivate yourself. The menubar addition in this new version has made it even better. It's now a core part of my writing toolbox, and a very simple and concrete aid to getting things done.

The sole additional feature I'd like to see would be the ability to specify certain set time periods (30/45/60/90 minutes, say) and have these directly selectable from the menubar item, to trigger them immediately. The extremely responsive developer says this is on the way.

Other than that, this is perfect for my needs, and worth every penny. I will always happily pay an extra few bucks for a piece of software that nails its intended purpose, and looks great - and TimeBoxed does.

Just waiting for my licence. I had hesitated slightly ($15.98 Cdn after all), but this is what I've been looking for. I tend to forget about time listening to the blues, surfing and what not and to date I've had three important events I have NOT missed, thanks to this. Remarkable.

This is a great new timer app for the Mac desktop. The developer has included a lot of excellent features behind what is, on the face of it, a very simple timer--which is what this app is all about. Also: the app has a lot of flexibility in terms of preferences and configuration control.

But best yet, the developer is very open to suggestions, and extremely responsive to bug reports.

Highly recommended.
