As our time at home continues, I’m finding more time to get some coding done. This has allowed me to add a number of commonly requested features that people have been looking for.
Some of these new additions include:
A way to create a template file and then load it later to quickly create a tab full of pre-defined timers, countdowns, and counters. Flagging a timer, countdown, or counter now makes the name light up in the same colour to help it stand out. If you define a hotkey on a timer or countdown, holding down shift+Hotkey will now reset the time. Plus a few other little quality of life features and bug fixes.
You can download the new version
Another new release, sorry for the delay. It seems like I’m going to be home a little more over the next little while (aren’t we all) so the next releases may be a little more frequent.
This version contains a few new pro features, some bug fixes, and a small UI change to reduce accidental deletion of timers, countdowns, and counters.
Looks like there were a couple of bugs in the latest release of WatchMe. For shame.
I’ve released a
new version (v2.5.2) that should address these issues, specifically:
Invalid Cast error when opening WatchMe on a machine with no previous configuration file. Problem with the Increment Counter checkbox losing it’s value when setting up the options for a Countdown.
Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Edit: The download link wasn’t updated correctly when this version was first released. If you downloaded it and are still getting prompted to update, try
downloading it again.
Finally. A new release.
Thie biggest addition in this version is the ability for Countdowns to increment or decrement a Counter control. You can use this to keep track of the number of times a Countdown has cycled – handy if you use the Pomodoro technique for working and want to count how many Pomodoros (work sessions) you have completed.
