Editors' review

This simple countdown timer performs its job, although it has some odd functionality. After double-clicking the initial window (which we found strange), ClearCode Count Down's basic interface allows you to set the countdown time and date, as well as the occasion.

Immediately after your input, the application displays the time left in days, hours, minutes, and seconds. You can select the display font and size (each size we tried was clear enough to be seen from a distance), change border styles, and set the window's opacity. As the countdown expires to zero, it only displays a short message that reads "Congrats!!!" Unlike other timers, no alarm sounds can be played, multiple alarms can't be set, nor can you customize your message.

While it does its job, those wishing for robust customization options will be disappointed. However, any user seeking a free, basic countdown timer may want to check out this application.

    Version: Count Down 1.2

    Pros

    I like it, good and easy to use.

    Cons

    As it was said before, if only we can make do something else when the countdown is completed, like write our own texts or make it play a sound or something.

    "It does count down"

    May 22, 2007   |   By synapse001

    Version: Count Down 1.2

    Pros

    I like that this simple count down timer can be made to be just floating numbers counting down. I use it with the darkroom writing software and this allows it to be on top and unobtrusive.

    Cons

    I wish that when it hit the end of the countdown that SOMETHING happened. Maybe even allowing me to set the something. I've used it twice and can't tell if there is a completion sound because I have been focused and not noticed it. Maybe a louder fanfare or something WAV or MP3 settable, or even if I could kick off a external program, or heck maybe even flashing or blinking text options.

    I also wish it were easier to set for other intervals; to count down twenty minutes or 2 hours without having to figure it out. I'm just lazy that way. I've seen other timers that do that but they are not as unobtrusive as this one, and that is for me it's best feature.
