Nice look and feature set, but crashes as soon as I start to use it or open the Options menu. I'm using Windows7 Professional SP1 64bits.

Eg: start, stop, pause timer; in the same way you can use the keyboard in the Minuteur Mac OS app for example.

Said about YAPA as an alternative


It's simple and minimalistic. It doesn't require you to set up an account. It's also a very helpful and non-invasive tool. I totally recommend it!
