Lifetimer includes various ways to time things in life.
Here are some key features of "Lifetimer":
· Timer (Stopwatch) - Measure how long something has been done
· Alarm - Allows for creating different types of alarms (i.e. “Green Tea”, “Black Tea”, “Nap”, “Unit of Work”) and when the duration of the alarm is finished, an alarm dialog opens up and a a pleasant beeping sound is played until the alarm dialog is closed
· Work/Break Cycle - This allows you to create a cycle of Work Time and Break Time. This can be useful to schedule regular breaks to help prevent eye strain, RSI(Repetitive Stress Injury, like carpal tunnel syndrome), or also to implement the (10 + 2) * 5 Procrastination Dash idea from 43folders.com. Sounds are also played at the beginning of each work and break time with the work time made to be slightly unstable (more serious, time to work!) and the break time made to be more stable (time to relax!)
The sound effects in this program were made using my software blue in conjunction with Csound.
