After almost two weeks of sitting in Apple's approval queue, my new app Timebar is finally available.|
I think it has a pretty innovative UI feature, so I wanted to float it by Hacker News.
It's a timer app that turns your Mac's menu bar into a sort of virtual hourglass. Your menu bar starts out tinted blue (or whatever colour you pick) and it slowly drains from right-to-left until your time is up.
It works very well for situations where you want to keep track of time, but don't need to be super precise. The menu bar is easy to glance up at, and it doesn't take long to happen subconsciously.
Here are a few promo codes. I'd love to hear you you think. :)
