That’s why it pays to have a very good alarm clock. Rejoice, dear Mac user. Here’s a free timer for the Mac which triples as an alarm clock, a countdown timer, and a chronometer, all rolled up into one nicely done package without so much as a hint of a price tag.
InerziaTimer is one of those very simple, yet very useful Mac timer apps that can do more than one time act at a time.
This is a timer that’s actually easy to setup and use. The preferences are more complicated than the timer.
Let me start with the alarm clock function. Select a date and time and click the Set button. While the alarm clock is running you can still use the countdown and chronometer settings.
Coundown is limited to 24-hours and InerziaTimer must be running to work. Quit the app and the timing quits, too. Select a sound to play at the end of countdown, or, have InerziaTimer speak something.
Chronometer is used to measure intervals, such as laps. Not only does it record a lap, but will record an average lap (who carries a Mac wherever someone is doing laps?).
InerziaTimer doesn’t take up much screen space on your Mac, and it’s a no-brainer operation to set the alarm or countdown with a click.
I use a timer on my Mac to keep track of what I’m working on and how long it takes. All that for free.
