Timebar stays out of your way while making sure you don't lose track of time. When you need it, it turns your entire menubar into a subtle progress bar that slowly slides away. When time's up, Timebar will let you know. Until then, stay focused on your stuff, not the timer.

Timebar's simple interface lets you set intervals ranging from one minute to eight hours, and even comes with a snooze alarm.

What a clever idea. Every other timer I have would often end up covered up by a window or stuck on another desktop/space than the active one. With Timebar I can always see at a glance how much time I have left. My only complaint is that the blue (or whatever) colour is applied as an overlay that dulls the text and icons on the menubar. It would be better if it was applied with the equivalent of the Multiply blend mode in Photoshop so that the text and icons remain easy to see.

I just heard back from the dev regarding the overlay effect, and he reported that he tried to get the overlay to work without dimming the text and icons, but unfortunately it's not possible in the current version of OS X. It's still a great app regardless.

It looks interesting and I am sure it's a good app like dragondrop (same dev) but I am extremely hesitant to purchase knowing that dragondrop has not been updated in months and seems neglected at this point.

Anybody speak with the dev and know if she has pushed a new version yet to apple for review? I hate buying apps that are updated a couple times in the beginning, draw attention by being on mac sites, and then development drops of completely.

I hope, I really do, this is different but until then I can't justify a .99c on an app I am unsure the developer's goals. Words are one thing, actions and updates are another.

If anyone has more info that I do not please share. Thanks.
