Boo, hiss to Juan Roa. I installed v3.5.4 which does little more than add not one, but TWO nag dialog boxes to goad you into buying v4.0 of the application. Where's v3.5.3 available for download so I can go back to it? Shame on you, Juan.

OS X 10.6.8: Since the recent security update (I think) TU frequently quits at launch with a "segmentation error." It eventually runs...sometimes after 3 or 4 quits, and sometimes it runs without quitting even once. Anybody else?

Unfortunately, it looks like this app has been abandoned; neither the d/l nor dev's Website link works. I wonder why it's still listed.

@ the developer: Your site is offline for a few days already, and I can't find this app on the appstore (Europe). Where/how can I get it soon?

I will almost certainly pay the minimal fee for this since it got me going with an alarm right away. The first time I asked for trial use under Snow Leopard I had to reopen the app but it's been fine since.

24-hour clock still does not work like it should (see previous review). The bar to click the sound-alarm away does not funtion properly since the latest update. Developer is slow with updates and bugfixes. Not reccommended.

This app has had a graphical bug ever since Lion came out over six months ago. All the buttons along the bottom of the app are greyed out. The devs. web site says they are working on a fix, but after all this time it seems doubtful. They have ignored requests for an update on the Lion fix. Looks like this app has been abandoned. Do not purchase this app.

Clumsy interface. I like this app, but it should really have a more unified interface with less clicking needed. For example, having the Actions Editor have to come up in a separate window is annoying. I'd rather have it always showing in a sidebar. But otherwise, good app. Just wish it had an option to perform tasks after the computer wakes up.

Good and affordable software that delivers most of the time. There's an annoying bug though: With the 24-hour time preference selected it sometimes jumps back to a 12 hour scale (while still in 24-hour mode). If unselected and selected again, the alarm-clock allows a 24-hour scale again. Suggestions for improvement: * Possibility to duplicate (or copy/paste) a countdown-timer, alarm-clock etc. It will ease making a new one as usually only one setting needs to be different. * Right-clicking a countdown-timer, alarm-clock etc. for editing should open a window in which ALL settings of that timer can be adjusted, so title, value, actions etc. * When a countdown-timer etc. has started, I click away the window (or both when also working with the tracker). When an alarm has ended, I would like to see the timer-utility pop-op automatically. Could be a pref. * I would love to see the possibility to have both tracker and utility in one window, maybe with tabs maybe, to switch from one to the other. Or even, like in many apps, to have both options: dragging them loose and dragging them back into one window with tabs.

What this sorely lacks is a wake option. I want to run certain Applescripts when the computer wakes up and would love it if Timer Utility had that as an option, but it doesn't.

This new version 4.06 prompts for an admin password to install a background process the first time the app starts. Even after quitting the app, the background process continues running as "root." The only way to use the app without the background process running appears to be clicking "cancel" when prompted to install the process each app start. I have no need for wake from sleep feature this process adds and do not want this process running on my computer all the time. Until the dev provides some easy way to start the app without this process, or the prompt to install it each time, I have gone back to the previous version.

I just got caught up in the non-disclosure bit. I had used this app as recently as two days ago with no update window appearing. Today - - one appeared - - and since it only said "bug fixes" - - I thought "Why not?" Now I have nag windows everywhere. I am *not* adverse to helping developers with beneficial apps, and have done so many time. The price for this app is not in question here. It is the tactic. After visiting the web site and finding no 3.5.5 version still available, I hoped I had kept an earlier dmg. Sadly - - I didn't. With close to 32000 downloads - - losing just one more won't make any difference to the developer. I would have gladly paid your four dollars if you had been open about what was involved. I hope your maneuver was - - and is - - worth it. I have found a replacement app. I guess openness and honesty is a big deal to me. You can dismiss this comment if you wish - - as you have others. It would be nice if you at least offered the old version on your site so you gave people the choice of that. I could have agreed to that - - and probably bought the update.

I loved version 3. I'd be glad to pay for version 4, but unless the restrictions on modifying the .app package isn't lifted, you can count me out. I *need* the freedom to change the icon, and perhaps even the resource files (think graphics etc) of an application. I do understand that you are trying to keep piracy down to a minimum. I'm just not happy with the way you are doing so. Still, I do wish you the best of luck with version 4, Juan.

WHY I AM GOING TO THROW THIS APP AWAY: I've been using this for a while. Not a large part of my workflow, but useful in timing various things. Now there is the auto update that doe not tell you the upgrade is a paid version until after you install it! Sorry but this is a LOAD OF CR--! Tell people BEFORE the upgrade process that this is a paid upgrade and then let us decide whether we want to upgrade or not. I probably would have, but now? I'm throwing this piece of YOU-KNOW-WHAT away. PERMANENTLY! Cannot tell you how angry this kind of bait-and-switch makes me!

Bought this recently as the previous version seemed to do what I wanted. No complaint about the price - its nice to see the iphone model being used on the mac as buying it was a no-brainer. However, it would be nice if the developer could implement a couple of vital features - firstly, an alarm needs to wake the computer from sleep - if the mac is asleep the countdown is paused until it reawakens?? Secondly, alarms need to run even when the app has been quit - I don't like having to keep an app open all the time just for an alarm.

Juan knowingly misrepresented what was included in version 3.5.4. Release notes for that version describe "minor bug fixes" when, in reality, v3.5.4 is little more than the classic "Bait 'n' Switch." In essence, we were misled into downloading a "better" version" (i.e., the bait) when what Juan really wanted to do was annoy us into paying for v4.0 (i.e., the switch). Juan can do what he wants but the means he employed were slippery.

The best a alarm clock application on the planet! This application is nothing shy of incredible, you get an alarm clock, stop watch, and count down timer, all in one! I use this application everyday for my exercises, and I don't see how I could do my exercises without this application. I cannot say one bad thing about this application!

How nice, it just does what it is supposed to do. Huge timer with queue of alarms. Beeps and/or speaks out message when timer goes off. I can now pay attention to other matters and have it nudge me when things are due or done.

Is Timer Utility related in any way to Timer 3.5.3? Both have exactly the same icon and are at the same version. However, when you click on Timer developer's link (Nitewing 98) you go to this address http://geeksuit.com/software/81_0_1_0_M/ where he calls it Timer II V2.6. It was uploaded to MacUpdate today. I'm confused.

I appreciate elegant yet useful tools such as Timer Utility. A very useful and simple to use tool that allows you to set alarm clocks, create countdown timers and even have multiple stop watches if you have specific project timers you need to keep track of. Very nicely done and very well written, kudos!

Whenever I see and update to Timer Utility, I'm like... what new features could the developer possibly add to an already useful, elegant application while still keeping it simple? Well, there you have it. He manages to do just that. Thank you developer! This is a great little app to have. One thing I noticed on this update is that when time is complete, the "Dismiss" option appears to have been removed? I would really like to see it back.

This is a great little timer! Hands down, the best of all the ones I've tried (Time Boxed, ClockWork, Alarm Clock Pro, and others I no longer recall). Events are easy to set up. The usual events are here: Stop watches for elapsed time, Countdown Timers, and alarms for specific times. Best of all for me, you can have a list of commonly used events: Laundry, cooking a Pizza, etc... No need to set the same alarm time and again, just create it once, and then just select it from the list next time.

This is a great timer utility! I love the ability to chain timers together, which is the exact functionality I've been looking for, and I have a feature request-- the ability to add additional timers (12 seems arbitrary, why not twenty) I need more! And an issue-- You should get rid of the sheet that announces the timer has expired, Unless you manually dismiss it, the timer window does not update. Also, you cant tell (with a series of timers chained together) which timer is currently running. You need to have the selected item in the list of timers change as the timer moves from one to the next. Other than that...Great work!

This application is great. I've been using it all the time the last few days for a bunch of things. It's easy and intuitive to use. It has wonderful options whence the alarm completes. I really like the different alarm sound options; They sound cool and really grab my attention when I'm away from my MacBook. I'd like to be able to switch the colors on the full screen so it isn't so bright, i.e. white numbers and black screen. It's a nice app. Thank you.

Wow, I'm extremely impressed that you're still updating this application. Just upgraded from 3.2 to 3.3. and it's great to see you being so proactive with your customers feedback. I think this is a perfect utility for time management and can only think of a couple of things I'd like to add ... 1) I hate clutter my dock, could we have the option to have TU sit in my menubar instead? 2) I'd be nice to have a timer start when another finishes. After my 30 mins of work I take a 5 minute break so it'd be good if i could loop the two timers in a 'playlist'. Apart from these suggestions TU is by far the most practical application available. Keep up the great work.

Excellent I've tested and used more than a handfull of timers, some of them too basic (Timer HB) some of them too feature-laden (Apimac timer) and convoluted (iClock) and some of the just don't feel right (Timer) - I had settled with "Pester" whose user interface and quick way of doing what I want it to do seemed to work best for me. What I like about Timer Utility is that you can loop the alarm sound until you have manually dissmissed it and that you can set different coundowns (and of course alarms) at the same time, triggering different actions / Alarms sounds e.g. But ease of use and the price are taking the cake here. Here's a suggestion: how about having the dock icon display the remaining countdown time?

Great timer! Looks good and great functionality. The "Alarmclock" tab should read "Alarm Clock" It would be nice to be able to set a custom message for the alarms & maybe make the dialog sheet larger, and use a larger font size for the message. Also, a button on the window to switch from mini size to full size window would be nice. Even as-is though, excellent!

Because the ratings were reset with this new release, I'm re-posting my five-star rating. This app does everything I want in a timer, and more. I still think there are other free options that are good. This one is great.

It was only a couple of days ago that I reviewed this app, giving it five stars for how it did everything I needed it to do, and all for the extravagant price of $0. I mentioned that the only thing useful to me that it didn't do was that it didn't offer an option to have a ticking sound, so that I could hear the seconds tick by as I did my physical therapy exercises for my low back. If I heard the ticking, I wouldn't have to be actually looking at the timer to see the time I had left (or that had elapsed). But I said that such an option was admittedly minor, and might not be of value to others. It didn't detract from my five-star rating. Well guess what shows up in the very next release--a ticking option. That kind of remarkably fast responsiveness to user requests (even small ones!) is rare. I'll be making a donation later today.

I agree. This is easily the best app of its kind. Does almost* everything timer-related that I need. It's easy to use, and the looks are simple and clean. And it's FREE--amazing. *The only option that I would like added is admittedly very minor: the option to turn on a ticking sound that's separate from the alarm. It would be very useful to me when I do my exercises and stretches; there are many times that it would be helpful to hear a "tick... tick... tick..." so I can count off how many seconds have gone by without having to look at the timer.

This is a very-well designed and flexible timer, which does a lot of useful things with the minimum of fuss. The developer is also extremely responsive. There are quite a few alternative timers out there (Minuteur is another favourite) but this scores very high for its clean intuitive interface, and the best implementation of a digital stopwatch I have seen. Thank you.
