Editors' Review

Cuppa for Mac helps you steep the perfect cup of tea by reminding you when it is ready based on the type of tea and a number of configurable solutions. The app sits in the dock of your Mac and runs quietly in the background, offering a number of options to set reminders and notifications that will get your attention when the tea is ready to drink.

After installation, Cuppa can be opened and will go to the dock of your Mac. Clicking it doesn't do anything, however, as you need to right-click or ctrl-click it to get a menu to open. Once the menu opens you can choose from the four tea options listed there or you can open the preferences and choose a custom timer or set the notifications for your tea. The tea bag will darken in the image as the timer counts down; and when it reaches zero, it will remind you that your tea is ready. It's all very minimalist but it works exactly as it should and is a great way to ensure you never forget your tea or jump the gun and drink it too early when it's not quite ready.

Cuppa is not a mind-blowing app in terms of its technology, but it does exactly as it promises and reminds you when your tea is ready to drink. It even goes a step further and offers numerous animations and reminder options, adding to this free app's appeal.
