I had a need for a stopwatch that could start with the spacebar, start fast, and stop on a dime. None of the other five stopwatches could do all three, except this one. It can also run full-screen. Other people may have other specific needs, but if you're timing something that requires getting the starts and stops fast, this is the only candidate.

Saved timers are not stored in a database or plist but have to be saved in a folder by yourself (but not possible in a Library folder). Every time you open a saved timer, you get the notification "Could not complete your request because Timer does not recognize this type of file." No alarm sounds available. Does not use system sounds apparently. Cannot import sounds. Clock cannot be set to 24 hours. While not totally unusable, it feels pretty unfinished. Regret my purchase.

It appears that saved timers cannot be opened lateron. Simply blurred out. Crappy software.

I opened a support ticket but got no reply. When logging in it appeared the ticked was deleted. Smelly company. Beware.

Seemed great at first but useless after the first session. Resets itself to 00:00:00 no matter what you do after one "reset" command, so requires labor-intensive process of adding up all bits of time spent at end of project, potentially weeks later in dozens of sessions. Have tried deleting and reinstalling after doing a fresh download of installer, deleting prefs, NOTHING resolves this. Apimac's customer service "resolution" for the problem was an apology and an offer of a discount towards one of their other products, but if this one doesn't even work, why would I waste money on something else that probably won't work either? After much research, I have found a very easy to use better freeware product which does what it's supposed to and keeps a running log of time spent on a project.

This should probably go under Troubleshooting, so adding it here. I guess it's meant to be so "intuitive" that they think it requires no instructions of any kind, BUT... When I first installed and used this, a few months ago, I somehow figured out how to get it to NOT reset at quit or launch, so that I could go back the next day and the time I'd spent the previous day would be right there on the stopwatch, still "paused". Now, no such luck. I've tried logging the current state, exporting events log, save, save as, looked in preferences...nada. NOTHING seems to make it not reset to 0 every time I launch it, even when I save the timer I have open and then open THAT file later. It still comes up showing 00:00:00. Anyone know how to do this?

Nope. So I abandoned Apimac Timer. IF this is a function reserved for any Pro versions, fine, but such an obvious and central function missing means there's no point using this. There's plenty of freeware doing the same thing better.

Takes a long time to launch and shut down, easily the longest of any app I have including Photoshop. Other than this, a very nice timer. ________ OS 10.6.8 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4 GB 667 MHz Ram

Same here. Thing just hangs up for almost 2 minutes. I've got the same set up as you, but with 20GB of ram. I notice it launches and quits normally fast on my computer's Admin account. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. No change.

Update. I bought the pro version. It is basically the same as the free one, but with a few more features. Anyway, I contacted support and they offered this suggestion which fixed the hang time: 1. Quit the program if it is running, and delete the files located at: /Users/you/Library/Preferences/Apimac/Timer/ /Users/you/Library/Application Support/Apimac/Timer/ (Note for Lion/Mountain Lion users: since Mac OS X 10.7 Lion the system hides the Library directory by default. Hold the Option key and use the “Go” menu in the Finder to Show Library.) 2. Launch the program in order to recreate from scratch the resources it needs.

This is a nice piece of software that unfortunately haven't been updated properly for OS X Lion. I get errors in OS X 10.7.4 like "Error while using AudioDeviceGetProperty etum Code who?". To get iTunes playing at a set time does work often but not always which is very unfortunate. So APImac Timer works sort of anyway. Reliability is so central for the functionality so I must take 2 stars off. With an update for Lion/ Mountain Lion it could easily receive 5 stars.

I forgot to say that under OS X 10.5 APImac Timer works both really well and reliably too.

It just works and does what it says. It is free but can be upgraded to pro for 24 euros. However normal stop / countdown functions can be used without limitation for free. For me that's enough.

Just a quick 5 star review and thankyou for this brilliant program. It does exactly what i need, to set an alarm and have a dialog box displayed with a message, and also periodically make a beep as with digital watches. The only improvement i could suggest is to consolidate the ui for the different alarms.. but hey, its free and works great. Thanks.

Apimac Timer is a nicely organized application in many respects, and its developers are generous with the features included in the free version (Thanks!). However, when the Timer, Alarm Clock and Stopwatch play a song in iTunes, both the free and Pro* versions can ONLY PLAY MP3 (.mp3) AND AIFF (.aif) FILES! Apimac Timer cannot play music in the AAC (.m4a), Apple Lossless (which also uses the .m4a extension) or WAV (.wav) formats. That's a major deficiency because AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), created to replace the aging MP3 format, obtains far superior audio quality at the same bit rates as MP3 and is supplanting that old dog so rapidly that it may dominate within a few years. So for Apimac not to support AAC now is a recipe for tepid sales of its Pro version. It’s also problematic for me because 95% of my iTunes library is Apple Lossless files, and the rest is AAC. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t complain about this problem were I only to use the free version of Apimac Timer. But I would want to get the Pro version, so this deficit effectively bars it from my consideration. Another issue I discovered in the process of writing this review is that Apimac Timer is a bit unstable. It crashed twice upon startup on my Mac OS 10.6.6 Core2Duo 2.4 GHz MacBook for apparently no reason. [ * It’s possible that these formats are enabled in the Pro version, but I strongly doubt it because the list of Pro features on the developer's website mentions nothing in that regard.]

This would more appropriately be labelled shareware. Access to all the features requires registration to get the "pro" version.
