I need a new mechanical kitchen timer and would like one with a lovely, musical bell. Something that sounds better than a clatter or a buzzing. Ringing is ok, a single ding would be nice, too, so long as the bell is musical and wonderful.
I'm looking for a pomodoro timer that keeps track of my actual time worked/time spent on break. In other words, I'd like it to ring an alarm after the 25-minute work time, but keep timing until I press "Start break," and ring an alarm after a 5 minute break, but keep timing until I press "Go back to work." Does such a thing exist? [more inside]
I hate coming home to a dark apartment. I would like to have a light on a timer that would switch on about ten minutes before I'm due home and would switch off later that night. The timers I've bought, however, have defeated me. [more inside]
Looking for an Android app that will let me track my daily activities. Oops but here comes a special boy: instead of having to remember to start/stop a timer manually, I would like the app to ping me every 15 minutes (or some customizable interval) and ask me what I'm doing. [more inside]
I want an app that will vibrate my phone every x minutes from 9 to 5 (or whatever hours) every day. And not through "notifications", because I don't want to have to take it out of my pocket or even touch it to make it stop, or clear popups from the screen later. Is there anything like this? Android & iOS suggestions both welcome. [more inside]
I need a mechanical (not digital or on my phone) timer that makes a ticking sound. I'd rather it not be a hugely loud harsh ticking sound but if it meets the other needs, I'll take it. I also need it to be pretty sturdy. And I need the damn thing to go off when it gets to zero. I've tried a bunch from kitchen stores lately and they only go off about 20% of the time. Bonus points if the dial is easy to see from across the room. [more inside]

I use Baydin's Email Game (https://emailgame.baydin.com/) to process email. I just got a new job, and my new company is requiring me to use Outlook Express or Apple Mail instead of gmail. Baydin's website only works with gmail or with Google Apps. So I'm looking for some kind of plug-in or add-on for Express or Apple Mail that has similar functionality to the Email Game--especially a timer showing how long I've spent on each email. Does anybody know of anything like this?
Where can I find a wrist timer that 1. can be set to alternate between two different time intervals (e.g. 10 min., 5 min., 10 min., 5 min...) with a minimum of button presses, 2. has a silent alarm, and 3. will fit an 8-year-old child's wrist? [more inside]

I want a kitchen timer (for use in "personal productivity", not the kitchen), but I hate the ticking sound that most of them make. I want to be able to set it by physically turning something. I definitely do not want to have to press any buttons. Where can I find such a thing?
Our chickens [!] have trouble hopping up on their roost at dusk. We have glued a keychain LED to the inside of the coop and have been turning it on every night, and then off when they are roosting. I would like to have this turn on automatically at dusk and then off again an hour later. If this were AC I would buy a timer from the dollar store. For DC do I need to build something? [more inside]

Hey All, OK, I know that this is a totally random post. So I have seen a few online timers, but most have a heart pounding alarm- yeah that ain't gonna work. I want to set an alarm for 5 minutes. I work for 5 mins, and than I watch a show or surf online for 5 mins. Most days I have my phone, and that works fine, but today it is out of juice. [more inside]

Hi, I was wondering if someone could recommend Pomodoro software that automatically cycles instead of having to click on the "start" each time a pomodoro finishes? That way you could have 3-4 Pomodoros (and breaks) chained in sequence and not have to start the timer each time. Recommendations for flexible timer software would also also work, I suppose. I'm looking for something for Windows. Thanks!

I am looking for a wonderful timer program for Mac (OS X 10.7.4 +). It needs to have a Cocoa GUI (meaning a GUI that isn't ugly, and isn't unnecessarily complicated), the ability to run multiple timers, and the ability to name timers with a decent amount of detail. Sound is an important feature, too. Command line alternatives are also cool, but not ideal. More information inside: [more inside]
