So I thought ok if the Beeminder iOS app fails to provide an adequate stopwatch (recently it decided to not list half of my goals even), why not look for one on my Mac. The internet provided. And I ended up with something called TeraTime. 5 star reviews, free, on the Mac App Store. So I installed it. And it’s a piece of trash
Just thought I’d save someone here the trouble. I mean realistically speaking nobody is going to read this who is also gonna try that app but here goes:
Once you go past 60 minutes, it shows “1 Hr” in addition to your time. That’s cute but it also keeps going past 60 minutes. So eventually you read something like 1 Hr 90:20 and then some numbers for the 1/100s and 1/10s. Which btw you can not turn off so they will constantly update in your face and your peripheral vision because let’s face it you are going to move that stopwatch into the corner of your screen.
But that’s not even the worst. Not only might it trick you into reading it like 1 hr and 90 minutes have passed (while in truth only 90 minutes have passed), no! Once it goes past 99:59 it shows 00:00. That’s right. I now ended up with “1Hr 10:17”. Which intuitively reads as “110 minutes and 17 seconds have passed”.
Just avoid it. It’s junk.
I mean seriously how hard can it be to make one decent stopwatch app that doesn’t suck.
