Hello all – I’m currently working on the next release, so I thought I would give you a quick preview of some of the upcoming things I’m working on.

  1. Storing config file(s) in different locations: You will be able to move the config files into a different directory, rather than being shackled to the default location that is used now. I have my beta version storing the config files in my dropbox folder so I can have the WatchMe on my work PC share the timers with WatchMe on my home PC.
  2. Running from a USB stick: By default the application will look for the config files in the same directory as the EXE first. This way you can put the app and it’s configuration files on a USB stick and then use it on different machines.
  3. Countdown Timers: Having the ability to create timers that count down from a set time rather than count up has been a common request for quite a while. I’m still working out the mechanism for this, but it will most likely be a new kind of timer you can add to the interface (just like the current timers). From there you can set the start time and it will count backwards, as opposed to up like the current timers.
Future enhancements (version 2.3 and higher) are hopefully going to include detailed logging of timers and generation of statistical reports (including time sheets).
If you have any comments or ideas about any of the features – feel free to comment on this post.
Thank you for your continued support of WatchMe. Happy timing!
