This application is a simple timer that countdowns the time until your computer automatically enables two tasks – namely, stops playing iTunes and activating an alarm.
The program has a plain and intuitive interface with all functions placed right there at hand on the main window. There aren't any hidden options to discover, which makes using the tool a hassle-free task. Both the "Stop Playing" and the "Alarm" modes allow you to determine a custom amount of time for the countdown, which may range from one second to one second less than 100 hours. Yet, you can pause the timing at any moment if necessary, and resume the countdown from where you stopped it. Setting the timer is done exclusively by clicking on the displayed arrows with your mouse. The procedure is simple, but it may become a tedious task if the time interval you want to set is a high one. In my opinion, the alternative to using your keyboard in order to insert the corresponding digits would be more helpful. However, once the countdown is over, the application will disable iTunes from playing and, respectively, will activate the alarm, which can be perceived both visually and acoustically. Unfortunately, the alarm sound doesn't support customization – you can neither import a different sound nor increase the volume.

In short, TwoTasks is a simple application designed to stop iTunes from playing after a specific amount of time and to set off an alarm to warn you about an event you don't want to miss.
