"Slightly quirky, yet effective"

February 11, 2008  |  By mbmgibson_dotmac

 |  Version: iWannaSleep 1.2b

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As others have said, the iWannaSleep's user interface isn't exactly intuitive. It might not have looked quite as funky as it does with more standard controls for the options, but I think people would have got the hang of it more quickly. A check-box with some text actually next to it on the screen to explain what it's for is more usable than an unlabelled one where you have to hover over it carefully with your mouse to read the pop-up tool-tip text to find out, for example.

As someone else said, it's also difficult to tell when you first use it whether it's actually counting down or not. While I like the always-counting-down spin-to-set dial, some indication that iWannaSleep _is_ always counting down would be more friendly for new users. The countdown app Minuteur has a similarly cryptic options interface, but has a very obvious and slick countdown display which shows one way this could be done (but it can't stop iTunes when it's finished!)

But, fundamentally, iWannaSleep works very well at the job it does -- for me, lulling me to sleep with an audiobook without playing the whole ten-hour file -- and it's free! I might quibble about the user interface (mostly because I'm a usability consultant...) but it's difficult to argue with the double whammy of "works" and "free", and it's a simple application whose small foibles are easy to get used to.

"wow"

I think this is brilliant. rarely do you get a simple program that does exactly what it claims to. It is a simple function but this does it brilliantly. I actually just told it to stop itunes while I was in bed about to sleep, but when it did stop, it faded the music out! I was so impressed that I got out of bed to write this comment!

"iWannaSleep? iDidSleep!"

 |  Version: iWannaSleep 1.2b

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Worked as advertised. I found the interface a little strange, but nothing a quick look at the documentation couldn't solve.

It has worked consistently over many sleep cycles. It's small and lightweight and if you're looking for something to put your machine to sleep, this is it.

I have used this simple app/script for quite a long time... it does what it says and suits my needs exactly. The previous version has always worked flawlessly, and I appreciate the developer putting this universal binary update out.

"Very useful"

Summary

I, too, find this app useful. I agree that it would be nice to have more user feedback in the application's UI. Other than that, it's great!

"Good, but is it running?"

July 13, 2004  |  By wplate

 |  Version: iWannaSleep 1.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I used this for the first time last night, it was exactly what I needed. However my only complaint was that I didn't know if I needed to start the timer, or if it was already running, it would be nice if there was some feedback from the program in that regard.

This is exactly the kind of software that the Macintosh community needs. It's useful, it's clean, and it's free. I use it every night.
