Menubar Countdown overview

Menubar Countdown is a simple countdown timer that displays itself on the right side of the Mac OS X menu bar.

To set the timer, click on the display and select the Start... menu item. A dialog will appear that allows you to specify the countdown time in hours, minutes, and seconds. The dialog also allows you to specify which of the following forms of notification you want when the timer gets down to 00:00:00:

  • Play the system alert sound
  • Display an alert window
  • Make a spoken announcement. You can specify the text to be spoken.
  • Growl

  • New application icon
  • Command-X, Command-C, Command-V, and Command-A now work in the text fields in the settings dialog
  • Command-R is now a shortcut key for the Restart Countdown... button in the alert window

This is even better than the countdown timer I use on my linux machine. I appreciate the simplicity along with the sophistication of a user-configurable text-to-voice message.

Excellent timer app! Very odd this hasn't been done before, but just about perfect as-is.
