Gestimer review: Mac menu bar timer like you've never used before

The best solutions are often the simplest. Time after time, Apple has unveiled revolutionary new input methods that seem obvious in retrospect but are ingenious in their simplicity; things like the mouse, the click wheel, and multitouch are so deceptively simple they have instantly changed the way we approach the respective interfaces they control, bringing faster and more efficient interactions with the various elements on the screen.
But Gestimer's simple sophistication is more than enough to make up for its utter lack of features. I've never used a menu bar app that let me interact with it in such a direct way, but it feels like one those simple solutions that seems so obvious I can't believe no one's ever thought of it before.
