Timer 6 update

Apimac has announced the latest update to its professional stop watch and alarm clock application for the Mac, Timer 6. The software is designed to help with time management and comes in two versions-- free and Pro. In the newest update, Apimac has made improvements to the interface, various code optimizations, and fixes a series of reported bugs. In addition, Timer 6 also offers support for Automator workflows in the Pro version of the application.

Timer provides users with three different clock areas to choose from, a stopwatch, alarm clock, and countdowns. Several features of the program enable users to customize the sound of their alarms using songs, a specific recorded voice message, or a time announcement, and to set the timer program for specific days and repeated times in order to allow for long term alarm clock settings.

Timer Pro contains features not available in the free version, including an e-mail log function, a computer shutdown ability that schedules the computer to turn off, log out, or go into sleep mode at a specific time, and a launch application capability which allows users to open specific files. Lastly, Timer Pro also offers a full-screen mode, and support for AppleScript an Apple Remote.

Timer 6 is a free update and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. Users can download the free version from the Apimac website, or purchase Timer Pro for $15.
