Countdown Timer counts down a specified time and sounds an alarm.
I wanted a timer with a repeat feature to help time my circuit training. I realised it would be useful to be able to time other regular events like waiting for coffee to brew or the 7 second stretch reflex. To make it easy to recall the settings, profiles can be created and edited.
Version 2.2 - Mac only:
Power nap profile
Stretching profile (running)
Rest timer (paused)
Sound selection dialog
MacOS X Pomodoro profile
On Mac, Countdown Timer should run on OS X 10.7 and above (Intel only). It should be able to play back any sample that QuickTime can play.
On Zaurus, Countdown Timer can play back uncompressed PCM WAVE files, mono or stereo. You can find a handy zip file with alarm sounds here. On most Linux/BSD systems you can check if a WAVE file is in the right format:
$ file Wilhelm.wav Wilhelm.wav: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM,16 bit, mono 48000 Hz
If it says Microsoft PCM then the WAVE file should be compatible.
I found the Wilhelm scream online and converted it using audacity. This is a great sound to use for alarms.
To add a profile,
I tried to find an easier way to do it but this is the best I could come up with.
