Sometimes things don’t have to be very complex to have an impact. In fact, Apple’s entire design esthetic focuses on the “less is more” philosophy, and the associated principles clearly have an influence on many iOS and OS X developers. Case in point: One of the coolest Mac apps I’ve seen in a long time is also one of the simplest Mac apps I’ve seen in a long time.

You’ll only need to use Gestimer for a single second to see how cool its design is. In fact, you don’t even have to use it at all — just watch this video:

Gestimer is a ridiculously simple reminders app for Mac computers that lives in the menu bar at the top of your display, so it’s always accessible. To set a new reminder, you simply click and hold on the app’s menu bar icon, and then drag it down toward the center of your screen.

A very cool animation makes it look like you’re drawing a shade, and the further you pull the icon, the further in the future your reminder will be set.

Gestimer is available for $2.99 in the Mac App Store.
