Editors' review

This alarm clock doubles as a timer, offering desirable features that, unfortunately, have limited range. Hands Free Clock sports a small, straightforward interface that displays a clock and lets you activate alarms, a stopwatch, and an egg timer. The desktop clock shows the time (including seconds) and the date and synchronizes with your system clock, but doesn't write to the system tray as do similar applications. The alarm feature lets you schedule as many alarms as you'd like, although scheduled alarms can only run once and are automatically deleted after use. Alarms come with user-input pop-up messages and can be associated with a WAV file. The stopwatch lets you count up to 60 minutes. The egg timer counts down the hours, minutes, and seconds you input and sets off a basic alarm sound as time expires. All told, although this freeware works decently, it's not hard to find more robust alarm clocks.

    "small and handy"

    November 21, 2009   |   By mrsraj

    Version: Handy Free Clock 1.5

    Pros

    Well its good and serves the purpose it speaks of ..
    you can keep on top all the time
    see time
    set alarms
    use stopwatch for a standard 60 min
    a egg timer which is a countdown timer and flexible to time

    Cons

    Well I would wish it offers few more options like setting it to a flexible taskbar or a toolbar of its own and offer flexible timing for stopclock too.
    but it is limited and also serve small timer purpose
    It helps me for my exam preparation

    Summary

    I would certainly recommend this to others. a small program timer.
    It helps for exam preparation
    A good reminder for procrastinators...

    "Does what it should"

    April 16, 2008   |   By lordmachiavelli

    Version: Handy Free Clock 1.5

    Cons

    Would be nice to be able to type a number in, instead of having to scroll down and click a number. I remember my grandfather's shanking hands, and if he were still around I don't think he'd be able to hold a mouse steady enough to reach 55 minutes.
