    "Works as advertised"

    November 2, 2010  |   By IslandBoy_77

    Version: Cool Timer 3.6

    Pros

    It's free, it does what it says it is supposed to do, big enough font / loud enough noise to be useful

    Cons

    Would be good to have full-screen option

    Summary

    Apart from the "missing" ability to have the display full-screen, this program is just the ticket for a glorified alarm clock! :)

    "Immediately Uninstalled"

    September 19, 2010  |   By defaultshiva

    Version: Cool Timer 3.6

    Pros

    Some people seem to like it.

    Cons

    It was bundled with an Installation for a secondary piece of software, which in most cases proves to be either malicious or bloated

    Summary

    . I decided to uninstall Cool Timer 3.6 when I saw the Install.exe file for the secondary program and that makes me feel violated. If I chose to not install their malware along with my copy of "cool timer" (great name to convince people to trust installing the other software that is bundled with it...perhaps the "cool" clock's main purpose is to get the user to trust and install the secondary software..

    I used Revo Uninstall and it found 3 registry items: /Harmony Hollow/Cool Timer/ Options/Size - 0 . This may be absolutely benign or not, i just chose the option to remove it from my Registry. Who knows, whatever left over garbage programs leave in their may carrier a stealthy delayed payload.

    Now I don't know if this software is malicious and I doubt that it is, since so many people have positive reviews for it.However I have decided to utilize "Alarm RP" instead because it didn't bundle other software into the installation & place an executable file for it in my Program Files directory. F

    Again, I am not saying that this software is bad for other users. Personally, I just don't feel comfortable using software which behaves like this.

    Lastly, EULAlzyer did not report any threatening agreements in the End User License Agreement for CoolTimer. Although I did not check the EULA of the other software bundled.

    Thank you for you time. Sincerely, your local friendly paranoid downloader.

    "Very functional and useful timer"

    September 10, 2010  |   By stans67

    Version: Cool Timer 3.6

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Cons

    If used during a presentation, can't make full screen. I'll need to figure out how to change sound. iTunes songs don't easily transfer to sound file.

    Summary

    Easy to use the basic functions.

    "It's a really handy device. No bugs. Easy Install"

    September 7, 2010  |   By cabri

    Version: Cool Timer 3.6

    Pros

    It's a big help if you tend to lose track of time while you're on the computer- just set it for when you want to quit.

    Cons

    None really- I just wish I'd found it sooner.

    Summary

    It's handy for anything you want to time. You can choose to have it go off at regular intervals or just once. It's ugly, IMO, but It minimizes to the systray, so you don't have to look at it. The sound choices for the alarm aren't too great, but if you have any themes on your computer, you can easily switch to one of those sounds. I use twittering birds. I didn't expect to be impressed but I really like it, and I'm recommending it to friends.
