Review: InerziaTimer measures and records time with an easy-to-use interface

Countdown to zero, measure intervals with a chronometer, or just set an alarm with InerziaTimer for Mac.

InerziaTimer for Mac installs as a full-featured stopwatch for your desktop, with a countdown timer, chronometer, and alarm clock built into a small, intuitive interface.

This application welcomes the user with a small and unobtrusive interface, which is self-explanatory for anyone who has ever used a stopwatch. The countdown timer includes configurable events when zero is reached. You can play a sound, have your Mac speak any sentence you type into the preferences panel, or launch a file. The chronometer includes a lap function that records each lap time in the window and calculates the lap average when stopped. These times and the average can be saved to a text file. The alarm clock functions exactly as it ought to and also features a countdown to the date and time configured. InerziaTimer for Mac must remain running for the alarm clock to work as there's no background mode, but the app is so lightweight in terms of resources, it hardly matters. We tested out all these functions on our MacBook, found them easy to configure, and everything worked as promised.

A basic, little utility, InerziaTimer for Mac does what it's supposed to and is quite easy to use. Users looking for an easy tool for measuring time intervals would do well to give this one a try.
