You have a task to accomplish and want to manage your time in a effective way?
Then this simple activity timer is the right tool for you. It provides a plain and smoothly integrated timer for your OS X status bar. Choose between time presets (3 minutes, 5 minutes, 25 minutes and 30 minutes) which proved to be perfect intervals for all kind of activities. Or just define your custom intervals together with a custom message you want to see, when the timer has finished. This can be something which is motivating like 'well done, sir. Now take a break.'
For example the "The Pomodoro Technique®" uses 25 minutes as the perfect time interval for accomplish a working task. Just set 25 minutes in the "Activity Timer" and start the counter. You will get a smooth notification directly into your OS X notification center, when the counter has finished. Normally then it's time to take a break.
