    Pros: 

    Great tool, useful for tracking simply time.

    Cons: 

    None

    A Pomodoro feature & a timer will make this an ultimate productivity tool for the Touch Bar.

Thanks for trying it out everyone! Please get in touch if you have any feedback or suggestions. Did anyone find the easter egg on the landing page yet?

Great stuff, do you plan on adding an actual Timer to this instead of just stop watch?

@mykro thanks for trying it out! I don't plan to add a timer, because I think existing non-touchbar apps do that quite well and I'm not sure what the touch bar would add. I may eventually add a pomodoro mode, though. And I'm happy to accept pull requests for other features.

@mykro Wow, It will be so cool if you can add a pomodoro to this.

@alexzirbel @mykro YES PLEASE! This is quite literally the only reason I have the menu bar showing. This would be a great use of my otherwise useless touch bar.

@mykro @alexzirbel Pomodoro mode will be great! That's how I got to find your timer...

This is a great app, Alex! Thank you for building it. The only thing I'd suggest would be to add a Pomodoro feature or count down. Btw, loved the easter egg on the landing page.
