Attention: this is a feature complete version of Timey 2. I will still maintain this app but I won't be adding any major new features and I will not support it on the future versions of macOS so if you have macOS 10.13 or later please check Timey 3 in the Mac App Store instead of this one :).

User reviews:
"This App is the perfect timer for me: small footprint, out of way in the toolbar. This rapid update brings in notification and I can now give it 5 stars." by FrodoOfTheShire.

"This is precisely what I hoped to find in a timer. It sits unobtrusively in the menubar, counts down, and gives a noticeable-but-not-obnoxious announcement when the countdown is completed. It does not pop up a lot of windows, its options are simple and all controlled from the menubar... It is the most elegant timer that I have tried for the iMac (I have tried a few) and my search for my ideal timer is done. True, if you want a lot of customization and options, then this is not for you, but I want unobtrusiveness and simplicity and here it is." by Matthew Romanek.

Timey is the simplest timer and stopwatch possible. It shows up in the menubar. Click to start or pause, right-click to reset. Click on the settings button to change mode between timer and stopwatch, to set global hotkeys or to quit Timey. Right-click on the settings button to set a quick timer. It is that simple. Now, enjoy handy Notification Center widget, UI redesigned for macOS Sierra and a fullscreen mode.

- stopwatch and timer,
- fullscreen mode,
- quick timers,
- easy to use and elegant,
- fast, lightweight and accurate,
- customizable global hotkeys,
- Notification Center widget.

Dear User,

this is a feature complete version of Timey 2. After almost 7 years of free updates I am moving on to its new generation, Timey 3. I will still maintain this app but I won't be adding any major new features and I will not support it on the future versions of macOS. If you like Timey and want to enjoy the latest and greatest features, please consider upgrading to the new app. If you decide to do so, it will be a paid upgrade for you but it will make it possible for me to further develop the concept. If you decide to stay where you are, be sure that you can contact me with any questions or problems at my support email - support@getniceapps.com.

I built Timey 3 with love as a completely new app, from the ground up. The biggest new features are:

- more compact and straightforward UI,

- easier to use design based on timer presets and easy time changing,

- more powerful keyboard shortcuts,
- all new, far more responsive Today View widget and full screen display.

Have a nice day,

Does What Its Supposed To Do, but...

…the app icon is horrible. I admit, that is such a trival point, but in my defense for a criticism, most developers put some sort of effort into creating a visually pleasing image, especially given Macs are known for their graphics. Here, not so much - the developer really missed the boat here.

Simple and Practical

I was searching for an app to time myself; particularly for practicing presentations. I love the simplicity of the app. Having the menu bar icon as the time is elegant from a practical point, and the fact that I can define my own keyboard shortcuts is cherry on the cake. Looking forward to trying Timey 3

Simple and functional

I sometimes get “lost” in my work even though I need to leave or get up to do something. I use this so I can get fully immersed for as long as I have and not forget to …
