TimeBoxed is a timer application, for Mac OS X. It focuses on one thing: running a timer, and doing it well.
Do you want to finish that draft in less than 30 minutes?
Do you need to pick-up the kids from school at noon?
Do you subscribe to David Allen's management method "Getting Things Done" and need a timer to help you with his 2 minutes rule?
You have found the right application to make the most of your time.
Time is a very limited resource: use it wisely. Every wasted minute is lost for ever.
Have you ever noticed that you are more productive when you have a deadline?
Do you lose track of time and get caught up in unimportant details? Ever had some work you were procrastinating over?
Simply set up a timer with a time limit that sounds reasonable - 10 minutes, half an hour - and commit yourself to be completely focused for this chunk of time.
TimeBoxed was designed to be extremely simple to use.
Each of its features has been carefully designed and configured to adhere to the core mission of this application.
In fact, many features were discarded because they just couldn't live up to our stringent mission requirements.
The result is an application that does exactly what you need, the way you need it.
TimeBoxed does not interrupt your work for each passing second. Instead, the time bar changes colour to warn you of your approaching deadline.
You can choose from a variety of alerts: sound, speech alert, visual animations, Growl messages...
Whatever your needs are, you'll be able to configure TimeBoxed to adapt to your workflow.
