Editors' Review

The Cool Timer is free alarm clock software that allows you to set up a countdown timer on your desktop down to the minute and second you want. It is an easy and cool way to keep track of your tasks and scheduling.

The interface is very easy to understand and definitely user friendly. There are only a few feature buttons like Start Timer, Pause Timer and Stop Timer, which are all you really need to get started. There doesn't seem to be any limit on how many hours you can set the timer for. Our testing didn't show any glitches or issues with this software. This is a cute if not cool way to countdown, thanks to the Preferences options. The timer can be set to reveal an image as it counts and Cool Timer provides some cute pictures. The alarm sound options are diverse as well, and fun to test out. The software also has an alarm clock and stop watch mode, which aren't obvious from a cursory sweep of the features.

The installation process was simple and didn't cause any issues. Uninstalling is just as simple. There are no limitations when downloading this free software since there is no registered version that will cost you money and restrict the features. This software is very easy to use and to set up even for a novice user. We would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a cute way to keep track of time on their computer.

"An EXCELLENT timer for your computer!"

September 16, 2012  |  By SteelWings

 |  Version: Cool Timer 4.6

Pros

Visualization images are super for young children just learning about time.

Ability to make user interface smaller is also a great feature.

Anything free is a blessing in today's tight economy.

Cons

Wish it would allow a user interface size adjustment method similar to other MS Windows® (dragging a corner of the window to re-size it) would be nice.

Those considering installing this program should be aware that the program's install screen comes with a couple of separate 3rd party program offers which require you to "deselect" the offer if you don't want the extra 3rd party program installed. (Might be why one user thought this program had malware included) Wish the offers could be included into one and wish it was an "OPT-IN" offer not an "OPT-OUT" as each update you have to remember to remove the check-marks otherwise you've installed an extra browser bar when you might have not wanted to. It's very understandable why the offers are being included since the program is free and the programer is trying to recoup some of his hard work and time through 3rd party revenue.

Summary

I've been using this timer program for a long time now. Kyle (whom I don't know personally) has done a super job of creating a program that is useful and handy. He's very quick at pushing updates to resolve bug issues. It's seldom that you see someone update a program as often as he does much less when the program is free. Offering the program for free is what allows me to use it and I'm very thankful for that opportunity.

Recently adding the visual image was a great touch as it's made it easier for us to teach our grandson about time.

On a side note, the fix just made for the full screen bug seems to work but there's still a tiny second where the transparency overlay pops up (it disappears quickly so it's not a big deal)

It's a great program that does what it says it will do and then some. It's simple and free and well worth considering if you have a need for any sort of stopwatch, countdown timer, egg timer etc.
