does a similar application to Timesnapper for Mac exist?

You would get better response if you explained what Timesnapper does, or more precisely what Timesnapper features you're after. –  Gilles Nov 22 '10 at 0:50

ManyTricks have recently released Time Sink. It sounds like it does some of what Timesnapper can. No screenshots though.

If you really want the actual screenshots you could try looking into scripting it using AppleScript and launchd. Shouldn't be that difficult to do.

yes, I think scripting is the right thing and the most customizable one, thanks a lot. But I do not want to learn applescript, I do alredy know now bash and so –  flow Nov 23 '10 at 12:06
@user10826: Then use what you know. screencapture -x filename.png in a bash script, have it called regularly using launchd or cron, you're done. –  Daniel Beck Nov 23 '10 at 12:09
