What separates a Mac power user, a certified Mac geek from the rest of the great masses of Mac users? Utilities. We Mac geeks collect utilities that often do only one thing (or, conversely, a utility that does everything, ala the Swiss Army Knife).
At least half a dozen timers grace my Mac’s Applications folder, including the most futuristic countdown timer of them all. Countdown Timer Gadget. A mere 99-cents brings you into heady company with a useful timer with multiple skins and animation eye candy.
Take a look at the black Tech Black skin.
Here’s a skin that’s a bit more feminine.
This is the Funky skin.
Alright, Countdown Timer Gadget is all funky and futuristically geeky in appearance. But it also works as a timer with specific actions. Set a timer to countdown, then play a sound, show a message, open iTunes, and more.
This timer can float anyone on the Mac’s screen so you get the maximum visual impact. Sorry, it doesn’t come with a Geek Certification Card, but it’s priced like a true eye candy app should be.
