Fob is a free dock-based kitchen timer for Mac OS X by Leaky Puppy Software. It allows a user to specify possibly multiple timers to count down for a specified interval. When an alarm runs out of time, Fob will make itself conspicuous.

(Fob is not an alarm clock or stopwatch, i.e., it will not count to a particular time, nor count up.)

The presence of presets is Fob's main gimmick for decreasing the effort required to start an alarm. To draw an analogy to Web browsers, they are a kind of time bookmark for commonly used alarms. For example, I may define a six minute preset to let tea steep. Thence, I need only choose "Tea" from my preset more...

What's New

Version 1.0.4:
  • One may start alarms from a text description (e.g. "5 m" for 5 minutes).
  • Alarms may be set to repeat indefinitely.
  • Various small interface enhancements, especially in the dock menu.
  • Fixed a small non-critical bug.


Mac OS X 10.1 or later
