Mac360 Article about Big Countdown Timer

Mac360Quick shout-out to the folks at Mac360 who recently wrote a nice post entitled “Every Mac needs a Big Countdown Timer“. Very cool. And as it so happens, most of the new features requested are already on the way, pending Apple’s review process… 🙂

More on the app here.

New: DMG Cleaner!

For years I’ve been annoyed with DMG files cluttering my new-sign-ID-33314Downloads folder. I’ve just downloaded and finished using an installer and now just want to unmount the disk image. Why can’t MacOS just delete the corresponding DMG file automatically when I do that? Why do I always have to manually take care of both the disk image and the DMG file?

Well, I’ve solved the problem myself with DMG Cleaner. Sometimes it’s the little utilities that make life easier. It’s now finally available in the App Store! Learn more.

New: Big Countdown Timer

new-sign-ID-33314Recently, I was helping facilitate a workshop and after having previously seen how well it worked to have a big countdown timer on the screen during group exercises and breakout sessions, I turned to the Mac App Store to find a good app for that very purpose. But I couldn’t find any! And so the idea, as easy as it is, was born: make a nice, big, easy-to-use timer app for Mac. And here it is: Big Countdown Timer.

I hope it’ll be useful for the meeting facilitators, trainers, Agilists and Lean Coffee folks out there.

Thank you, namaste and good luck! 🙂
