Marxio Timer

CNET Editors' review

Marxio Timer provides a simple set of tools for creating a customized reminder system. With two distinct ways of perfecting a reminder, this program is easy and fast to set.

The program's interface is surprisingly simple to handle, thanks in part to the well-labeled single-screen commands. You can choose what type of alarm you want--options range from everything from traditional alarm clock sounds to sounds for computer shutdown. You can take a screenshot, open a specific program, and much more. Each was simple to choose and easy to understand, and none ever left us guessing its function. The second strong component of this alarm system is its capability to choose when to perform its task. You can set a traditional timer, choose a percentage of CPU usage, idle time, or other triggers. No matter the combination you select, the program performs its duty accurately and on time, each time. Marxio Timer also provides an interesting feature that saves a specific alarm setup so it can be reenacted at a later date with only a single button click. This is a thoughtful alarm program, and we were pleased with every aspect of it.

Marxio Timer is freeware. It installs desktop icons without asking permission. By providing a bevy of alarm settings and options, it's a great choice for those in need of a reminder, and we highly recommend it.

    "Real 5-star application"

    August 20, 2010  |   By Derek28061971

    Version: Marxio Timer 1.12.2

    Pros

    Real masterpiece. Tens of actions and advanced short-time scheduler. Thigs that dozens of other applications can offer but here we have all-on-one. Portable.

    Cons

    few in the past, now without any flaws - at least I didn't find any new so far

    Summary

    I have been using Marxio Timer for over a year till non and it's super when you receive more and more in newer versions. New so called actions that this timer can execute, more and more customizable over time. Updates are so often released (every few days) that once I suggested developers to remove such annoying popup that showed up every few days, that they finally removed it. This is my feature :)
    I use version 1.13.1 right now and for those who tried to use 1.12.2....yes I was also affected by this bug and lost few auctions on ebay as i set countdown timer on two auctions, but this was fixed - as I remember - after few days, so as you see, it's worth downloading this tool. It's portable so no worry it will harm you computer.

    "installation failure"

    June 29, 2010  |   By ImainemanI

    Version: Marxio Timer 1.12.2

    Pros

    don't know ... couldn't get it to install properly so that it would run

    Cons

    After installing, the program would fail to launch giving a pop-up error (see below)

    Summary

    I tried 3 times to install the software, and each time got a "Encode Date Error" popup when I tried to launch. I ran a registry cleaner in between attempts, turned off virus scan, downloaded 2nd time, etc. and nothing worked. Disappointed as I thought this was what I needed and it had received 2 favorable votes (without responses). BTW, I'm running it on a lenovo laptop with XP Pro O/S. Hope the developer can fix the problem and give us an alert when it's operable.
