Minute Timer

What is Minute Timer?

Minute Timer is a free utility to help people time events and have lost their egg timer! Set up an event of any number of minutes and seconds (default is 1 minute). The ticking, 10-second warning and final buzzer sounds are all configurable. A simple application, but surprisingly useful for timing 20-30 minute presentations and talks, for games, cooking or exercising. No need to watch the hourglass or wait for the sand to return to the bottom.

The file download contains versions for Macintosh (Universal Binary), Windows and Linux.
