Editors' Review

+

Everyone's had the experience of sitting down at the computer and suddenly realizing that hours have passed in the blink of an eye. Whether you need to remind yourself of an upcoming event or just give yourself a reminder of how much time you've spent online, Free Countdown Timer is a good choice. This basic program provides a simple alarm clock with just enough features to be fun.

The program's interface is clean and very easy to navigate. Adding an event is as simple as clicking the Add button and filling in the relevant details. Free Countdown Timer can sound an alarm after a specified amount of time has passed--from hours to seconds--or at a particular date and time. The program comes with a variety of alarm sounds, but you can easily select your own sounds or songs to use instead. There are a few extras that really make this program shine, including snooze and loop options, and the program's capability of waking the computer from sleep mode or turning on the monitor power. An online Help file doesn't offer much in the way of guidance, but that's okay; everything about Free Countdown Timer is easy to figure out. Overall, there's nothing about this program that really knocked our socks off, but we think it's a great choice if you're looking for a functional, attractive desktop alarm clock.

Free Countdown Timer installs and uninstalls without issues.

"Comes with theftware that majorly messes up your system"

November 30, 2012  |  By Kch75013

 |  Version: Free Countdown Timer 2.7.1

Pros

I am still evaluating the programme which seems OK.

Cons

But the major problem is the extra unmentioned extension it installs that performs unasked and unannounced changes to your settings, steals your search engine, home page etc. It installs via some unwanted cr*p called funnmoods. I use Firefox and opened an about:config, typed in funmoods and there were 37, yes thirty-seven redirects installed.

Summary

in conclusion this is bad news DO NOT DOWNOAD THIS unless you want to spend hours restoring your sytem.
I expected better of CNET. I can see those days are gone.
