It looks like the program has been converted from a widget to an app, and is now only available via the app store:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/minutes/id406827163?mt=12

The developer's web site is here:

The old version of the program, which was a widget, can still be found here:

Very useful! Works really well. But why has it not been updated for so long?

Easily one of my most used widgets.
The Widget is mainly a timer, but unlike a simple timer it can do so much more than that.
Not only does it alert you when the time is up, it can also fade out your iTunes and put the Mac to sleep (great for late night podcast listening) or run a certain application.
The interface is easy to handle, as easy as any kitchen timer.

Really nice looking simple and functional. Works under Leo (10.5.5) fine for me but... How do I get rid of the "It's about time!" message that came up on my screen?!!!
(5 mins later - its gone now, when I clicked it... must have been frozen)

It would be great with some features like setting a specific time for a morning alarm and snooze (triggered from the Apple remote). Will it wake the computer? I have yet to test that but that is important also.

Please develop this one further as its the best one I have tried. (of 5)

From the design, to the functionality, to the compactness without sacrificing features, this is a pretty clever and sharp-looking timer widget.

Nice job!

It just works. I like that in a piece of software.
The interface is really rather intuitive;
it didn't take any messing around to make it work.
It just works.

Well done.
