This small, simple four-button timer application is easy for anyone to use! The time counts down in minutes and seconds; when it expires, a ring sounds, the display flashes, and the elapsed expired time is also shown on the display. The timer also counts up from zero, if the time is started at zero. A large, easy-to-read time display is shown in the dock, for quick reference. Full screen and mini modes offer additional helpful ways to view the timer. The full screen mode is fully supported on multiple monitors. The timer can be controlled from the keyboard: press the spacebar to start or stop the timer, the m key to increase the minutes, s key to increase the seconds, and clear or zero key to reset the timer.

Would be perfect for teachers if it had 2 features

1. Keyboard Button to decrease number of minutes (When using keyboard, you can only increase minutes)
2. Different keyboard button for “Clear”. Macbooks don’t have that button. (Or make it mapable.)

Developer Response ,

Although there is no keyboard shortcut to reduce the time, you can type numbers to set the timer. For instance, type 1-0-0 to set the timer to one minute. You can also type 0 repeatedly to zero out the timer, if your keyboard does not have a clear button.
