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.

"Good Program, Installs Malware"

April 07, 2013  |  By smcilree

 |  Version: Cool Timer 4.9.1

Pros

Versatile timer program

Cons

Installs Mixi.dj crapware which adds a toolbar to your browser and changes your default search engine to BING. There is also some suggestion that this is spyware. The install process offers no opt-out for this. The removal is time consuming.

Summary

Good timer program with bad baggage.

Updated on Apr 7, 2013

I should mention that I downloaded the version of Cool Timer with the malware from CNET.

Pros

I use it as my cooker timer. Stick something in the oven, go on the internet, forget about the stuff I have in the oven, it ends up burnt. Not any longer. Never burnt a pie since.

Cons

None. It just works.
