Presentation Timer for Mac

· Liz Hermann Liz Hermann

Most available timer software is made for Windows only. Stagetimer can be used on any Mac, iPhone or iPad 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.

How to use stagetimer.io

Go to stagetimer.io and click on “create a timer”. It will create a new timer for you and will 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.
