This program is a Menu Bar utility that helps you monitor the amount of time you spend completing assignments on your Mac. The application features a straightforward interface, brings you simple to configure stopwatch settings, and uses minimum CPU resources.

All you need to do to start a stopwatch session is to click the Play button from the Menu Bar (MenuTimer puts an icon on your Menu bar that shows the stopwatch tool, a Play or Pause button, and a reset button). You can always pause and resume the stopwatch counter, reset the timer, and copy to clipboard the amount of time you spent working on a task.

I like the fact that you can customize the appearance of the stopwatch tool according to your needs (you can change the font style and size). Furthermore, the app also provides you with a countdown option and displays an alert message once the timer hits zero.

This version of MenuTimer provides you with an additional feature (it's now compatible with Yosemite OS X) and various bug fixes. However, it still lacks an option to countdown for X minutes or hours (you can only set the date and time when the countdown is off).

Nevertheless, this application is free of charge and might prove to be of good use to freelancers who require assistance in estimating their payments.
