Timer by Ten

Features

Timer by Ten is a simple four-button timer for Mac OS X 10.5+.
I couldn’t find a good timer app that was easy enough for my kids to use, so I wrote my own. It operates the same way you’d expect from a simple electronic kitchen timer. Set the time, press start, it counts down; it counts up if you press start while it is set to zero. When the timer expires, a secondary count-up display will show you how long it has been ringing. There is also a stopwatch mode, a compact mini-mode, and full-screen support for OS X 10.6+.

Timer by Ten is available in the following localizations:

Full Screen Mode

In Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), use the green Full Screen button at the top of the window, use the menu, or press ⌘-ctrl-F to enter or exit the timer’s Full Screen Mode.

The timer control buttons will automatically hide soon after entering Full Screen Mode, and will reappear if the mouse is moved near the top of the screen (this feature can be disabled in the Preferences).

Mini Mode
