Review: Count up or count down with light OnlyStopWatch

Use OnlyStopWatch for visually timing your tasks.

OnlyStopWatch is a very light app that dedicates itself to counting time for you. The download was extremely fast and the installation was so quick that it was almost imperceptible. This app doesn't claim to do more than its title -- and it doesn't. But what it does do, it does fairly well.

OnlyStopWatch opens to a large format visual digital timer. The program gives you the choice of six color combinations for the timer and allows you to choose what time denominations to view. You can view hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds. You have the choice of visualizing the hour and the milliseconds. This app will count down for you and allows you to choose a preset starting number of minutes or allows you to input a unique number of minutes. The stopwatch function starts the timer at zero unless you start it at a different time. You can set OnlyStopWatch to start and stop on a mouse click, which is recommended. If you do not set the program to start and stop with a mouse click, it will never reset to exactly zero (as seen from the milliseconds). One shortcoming of this program is the lack of an alarm or indication that you have reached your desired time. This program can remain small and "only a stopwatch," even with an alarm function or some sort of audible indicator.

The clock face is large and easy to see with high-contrast color combinations. If you need a visual timer for anything, OnlyStopWatch can get the job done and anyone can use it.
