Timeless is now also available on the Mac App Store! It’s the exact same release you get from download it directly from me.

An in-app purchase unlocks the premium features. 🔐


With the new download option also comes an update for the non-MAS release. It contains mostly under the hood changes to accommodate the App Store release.

Stay focused and feel more comfortable working remotely

March 2020

The COVID-19 Corona outbreak has many of us working from home. It could be the first time you sit down at the kitchen table with a laptop. Maybe you’ve doing it for years.

In either case, I’ve made an app called Timeless that will make the experience even more comfortable – or bearable if you prefer the office.

Working remotely comes with unique challenges, among which distraction and procrastination. For me personally, the clock plays an important part in this.

Tell me if these sound familiar:

  • 10.00 “Only 10 am?? It feels like I’ve been doing nothing.”
  • 11.30 “Better not start something new, it’ll be lunch soon.”
  • 14.00 “Sheesh this day is never going to end…”
  • 16.00 “It’s already 4 pm?? I did nothing today and it’s too late to start now.”

These moments will cause distraction, make me anxious or I’ll start procrastinating.

I made Timeless to fix this. It hides the exact time and shows customizable ranges instead. You lose the feeling of dread some hours on the clock might give you, while keeping a sense of time passing.

The key is stopping the clock. Not knowing whether it’s 11:00 or 11:45 will keep you from losing focus and stopping early just because lunch is around the corner. This doesn’t mean you have to work more, or longer. It’s about working more effectively. You could even alternate between work and leisure ranges. Don’t worry too much about starting a range exactly when you switch to it.

To give you an idea, this is how I setup my ranges:

  • 08:30-12:00 “Morning work: email, stats, decide out what I’ll do today.”
  • 12:00-13:30 “Lunch”
  • 13.30-15:30 “More work. Actually get stuff done.”
  • 15:30-18:00 “Keep working and maybe run an errand or two.”
  • 18:00-22:00 “Make diner and finish up stuff.”

I don’t drop everything when a new range starts, instead it’s a hint that I might have to change what I’m doing. That’s why I have a 1.5 hour lunch range. I aim to get a sandwich anywhere in those one and a half hours. Some days it’s 12:01, others 13:20. 🥪

The best part is not being dictated by the minute on the clock. If I need to be somewhere, or have a meeting I set reminders and calendar appointments. The trick there is to set alerts appropriately; by taking into account the time I need to switch tasks.

If I got you excited, give Timeless a go by downloading the free version. Let me know what you think. And stay safe!

New features for Timeless!

February 2020

A new version of Timeless came out this Friday! Besides a whole bunch of under-the-hood tweaks and improvements it introduces two new features that were requested by a few of you.

I’ve also switched to a more liberal versioning system. This is update came out in 2020 (2020.3) and it’s update number three (2020.3) this year. In a more traditional versioning system I might’ve called this is 1.5 or even 2.0 release. 🚀

New features

Let’s start with the new features. They were both requested several times and I think they’re great additions.

Both are premium features that will be unlocked when you buy a license for Timeless.

Connect the last and first time entry

This is a feature for night owls. Previously Timeless would create a range up to the last time entry, then turn idle until the first time entry the next morning. This won’t do if you’re getting something done between 10 PM and 3 AM. I’m excited to say that with version 2020.3 you can choose to bridge the gap between two consecutive, enabled days.

Simply enable the feature in the indicator preferences. That’s it. ✓

Customize the optional clock’s date components

Originally Timeless would always show the current day and time when the indicator is idle. If it’s Friday at 20:15, it would say “Mon 20:15”. The new default is to just show the time, clean and simple “20:15”. You can optionally add the current day and even display the full date “Mon 17 Feb 20:15”, exactly like macOS allows you to do.

All date and time formats are of course displayed according to your current locale. 🌐


  • The optional clock now has its own preference pane.
  • Toggling a premium feature shows the registration window as a convenient sheet.
  • A single internal timer makes sure all events happen at the right time.
  • Toggling weekdays is now a premium feature. If you were using the free version, your current settings are preserved.


  • The alignment of the time in the menu bar has been fixed for macOS 10.15.
  • Lots of under the hood changes and improvements regarding the internal clock handling UI updates, waking from sleep etc.

That’s it. A lot has changed in this release. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, click the ‘Timeless Help’ item and let me know.

Enjoy the update! 🙂
