TimerTrek is an app that focuses on providing a single countdown timer using futuristic graphics. TimerTrek can be configured in a variety of viewing modes: Full-Screen, Windowed, GigaTimer, and NanoTimer mode. The first two modes have all of the controls available to configure the timer. The second two modes just show the timer. NanoTimer mode uses a view size of 700 x 400 pixels.

Teachers find it useful during exams, to show students how much test time remains.
Podcasters/Netcasters use it in their workflow to keep their productions on track, especially those with ADD and a propensity to rathole or chase untamed ornithoids without justifiable cause.

There are 35 gradient themes and 15 Sound FX to choose from.

When the Countdown Timer fires, it automatically brings the app to focus, so you will never miss an alarm, even when you are running in Silent Mode.

Click one of the seven bars at the bottom of the view to choose how much detail is shown between the brackets.

Click the right bracket to dim/undim the seconds readout.
