"Does its job well - but it should be free."

April 18, 2010  |  By ev92

 |  Version: CountDown 8.01

Pros

Quick simple program that works as advertised (at least for the functions I tired.)

Cons

GUI could be easier to use and more in keeping with Windows standards. Such a simple program should be free these days.

"Not worth the cash."

February 28, 2010  |  By joebishpie

 |  Version: CountDown 8.01

Pros

Umm, it works as advertised.

Cons

Looks horrible. Limited amount of dates. Cost $9 (free 21 day trial).

Summary

Would be good as freeware, but not worth $9, or any amount for that matter.

"Horrible interface, eye-sore."

January 06, 2010  |  By SystemVoid

 |  Version: CountDown 8.01

Pros

It does what it's supposed to do, but that's really about it.

Cons

Horrible, horrible interface. Unpleasant to look at. Kind of difficult to figure out how to use certain applications on it.

Summary

This application reeks of Windows 95. In fact, it makes Windows 95 look good. The entire application suite looks like a website designed with AOL's software from 1994. It works. It does everything it advertises, but it's just too horrible to even look at. Not a lot of useful features, and not very user-friendly. On the plus side, it only takes about 2 seconds to un-install.

"Almost Useless"

October 19, 2008  |  By AaA_Dave

 |  Version: CountDown 8.01

Pros

It can count well.

Cons

Not very practical, countdown box is huge so the "Always on top" option isn't too useful

Limited options
NOT WORTH PAYING FOR

"way 2 cool"

May 17, 2008  |  By C.W. Jr.

 |  Version: CountDown 8.01

Pros

This countdown clock is so cool and easy to use. The default alarm is a siren followed by woman's voice that says "Time is up !! "

Unfortunately the woman's voice reminds me of my ex-wife, but I have the option of several different alarms to choose from. It's really a neat clock !!

Pros

Cute and handy. Didn't need the Countup timer but the others are indispensible.

Many uses.

"Absolute GARBAGE!"

February 06, 2008  |  By jcobes

 |  Version: CountDown 8.01

Cons

The GUI is horrible. There are no useful options. The output is ugly and glitch filled.

I guarantee those positive reviews are from the publishers.

If I could give it zero stars, I would.

One of the most useful tools for a computer. This is the first shareware program I've ever bought. Can't get by without it. Use it to time everything. Very handy.
