When a timer finishes, the time bar turns red. While working on something else, you might be so focused that you won't notice.
TimeBoxed has a lot of alerts to notify you. Choose from:
Visual animations: TimeBoxed animates its window,bounces the dock icon, flash the screen.
If you prefer a sound alert, just choose the one you like.
TimeBoxed can even talk to you!
If you want something more subtle, TimeBoxed can run Growl notifications.
You don't have to choose one alert over the other. TimeBoxed can run all of them if that's what you prefer.
We assume you have real work to do, and want to be roughly aware of the elapsed time and be notified when time is up. You never asked to be disturbed with the text of the remaining time being updated for each passing second.
Don't worry, TimeBoxed is not that rude. We educated him as good as you can educate a Mac Software.
TimeBoxed main window is, on purpose, very light.
You can configure TimeBoxed main window level : on top of every other window, or visible only when time is almost up.
TimeBoxed does not disturb you before you need it, and nicely warns you when its duty is over!
