ChronoSlider Reviews

  • – "Chrono Slider is actually a really clever app and definitely worth a look."
  • – "It’s simple enough that you can set a new alarm in just a few seconds, but also useful enough that if you want it to perform something complicated, you can most likely do it through the AppleScripts."
  • One Thing Well – "As well as the interesting overlay interface, you can set up ‘chronolings’—AppleScripts triggered by alarms."
  • Minimal Mac – "Interesting little menubar tool to manage timers and alarms. Designed to be super simple and functional. I know there are many out there in need of such a tool."
  • – "The latest cool little timer to grace my Mac’s screen is ChronoSlider. It lets you set alarms and timers with a couple of mouse clicks. And, it bares an interface that dares to Think Different™."
  • 65BITS – "Je ne connais aucun utilitaire qui permet de programmer une alarme aussi vite que ChronoSlider!"
  • – "Chronoslider ist eine interessante Ergänzung für das Waffenarsenal, mit dem man seinen Tagesablauf in Schach halten möchte. "
