Free Countdown Timer for Mac

· Liz Hermann Liz Hermann

Most available timer software is made for Windows only. Stagetimer can be used on any Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Windows device, and it doesn’t require a download - it simply runs in the browser. You can use it with any operating system and any browser, and you can share timers with others via a link or QR code. The web version of Stagetimer requires a stable internet connection, but an offline version for Mac and Windows is also available. It can be used offline and on local networks without internet access.

How to use stagetimer.io

To use Stagetimer, go to stagetimer.io and click on “create a timer.” It will create a new timer for you and then redirect you to the controller page. From here, it’s very easy to set the duration and start the countdown.

On the controller page, simply copy and share a link with other staff to control and customize the timer. You can also share a viewer link that will give speakers access to a full-screen version of the timer.

Timers and messages can be set and controlled from any device that’s connected to the internet. Stagetimer works best with updated browsers and operating systems. Check out the minimum system requirements. Timers adjust to different screen sizes. When using time of day, the clock automatically adopts the timezone and time format preferences of the browser.

You can create up to three timers and messages for free. Upgrade to a Pro subscription to have access to unlimited rooms, password-protected links, custom logo and background and more. This enables you to create a complete rundown for shows.

New Offline Version now available for Windows and Mac

In addition to being able to run in any modern web browser, Stagetimer now offers an offline version for Windows and Mac. This version allows you to use the timer even when you don’t have an internet connection, making it perfect for use at events or in situations where internet access is limited. To get the offline version, simply navigate to the Download Page. From there, you can download the offline version for your specific operating system. The offline version includes all of the same features as the online version, including the ability to create and customize multiple timers, control the timer remotely, and share the timer with others via a link or QR code.

Benefits of the Offline Version: Free and Pro Features Available

The offline version of Stagetimer is a great option for those who need to use the software without an internet connection. This version is available for both Windows and macOS, and can be downloaded from your user dashboard. The best part? The offline version is completely free to use, just like the web version. You’ll have access to all of the basic features, including creating and running timers, scheduling timers, and linking timers together.

If you want to take advantage of the advanced Pro and Premium features, you can purchase a Pro or Premium subscription. With a Pro subscription, you’ll get access to additional customization options and advanced features such as importing and exporting timer data, and real-time control of timers from more than three devices at the same time. Plus, your Pro subscription includes one license for the offline version, so you can enjoy the same Pro features on your offline device. The same is true for a Premium subscription, which includes even more advanced features and allows you to connect more devices to each room. See the pricing page.
