Editors' Review

+

TimeLeft is a big improvement on the Windows system clock, but it's more than that; it includes a countdown, stopwatch, alarm clock, timer, and time synchronizer. It comes in several versions, including a Free edition that leaves out some features and limits users to one of each feature at a time, and a Deluxe version that has lifetime support and upgrades and unlimited features. But the Deluxe version is free to try for 30 days, which is plenty of time to see if this timekeeper is a keeper. We tried TimeLeft Deluxe in both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. We think anyone who tries TimeLeft and uses it every day (or nearly so) will value the Deluxe version's advantages.

Setting up TimeLeft involves choosing a few options. For instance, the program can replace the built-in Windows Tray Clock, but only in 32-bit Windows editions. We declined the Auction Watch browser add-on, which works with an optional feature that can keep track of your online auctions with help from a wizard that also packs a cool tool for exporting countdowns to Web sites. Some of TimeLeft's add-ons, such as the skins pack, cost extra; that's OK, because some users don't want to pay for extras (like skins) that they don't want or need and won't use, and choice is good. Speaking of choices, TimeLeft has plenty of them, starting with the New Year Countdown and Clock windows it displayed when the installer finished. These are compact, but can be resized; colorful, but can be reskinned; and legible, but can be configured to display any time or date format, number sequence, layout, and action you like. Clicking the program's System Tray icon opens the Main Window, an efficient utility for configuring TimeLeft's features. Right-clicking the tray icon opens TimeLeft's main menu, which accesses its primary features: My Reminders, My Countdowns, My Clocks, My Stopwatches, My Timers, and My Stickers. Right-clicking any clock or display accesses its own menu with options like Edit Countdown and Zoom.

What else? Customizable sounds, personal reminders, sticky notes (the Sticker feature) and still more. If it's about time, TimeLeft Deluxe has it covered.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of TimeLeft 3.59.

"all the options I need, a lot more to explore"

March 27, 2011  |  By LenoreCollins

 |  Version: TimeLeft 3.55

Pros

quick, simple to install, fairly easy to use, lets me customize reminders, great value!

Cons

UI -- especially date/time entry -- is a little awkward. I'll know more after I work with it awhile.

Summary

I've been using freeware Alarm95 for years and years (probably since 1995, doh!) but I needed to replace it before moving to Win7. TimeLeft Deluxe is turning out to be just what I need, with features that Alarm95 (bless its little heart) doesn't offer. I'm delighted with this software.

"Crippled after 30 days - ascetically poor"

March 15, 2011  |  By MacFheorais

 |  Version: TimeLeft 3.55

Pros

Does what it say it does, multiple configurations.

Cons

Awful interface, crippled after 30 days.

Summary

A count down timer is not rocket science, so the fact they crippled the trial to one countdown says little about product. The interface is awful. Very poor.

"Super clock, timer, stopwatch. Other time, memo facets."

February 16, 2011  |  By SillyOpaJim

Stopwatch was just what I wanted: can title, start, stop, is unobtrusive, many skins.

Cons

I have to remember to stop the watch when I'm finished an event.

Summary

Super!

"Great group of tools"

January 16, 2011  |  By Skydiver25

 |  Version: TimeLeft 3.55

Pros

If it has to do with reminders, stop watches, count downs and count ups this is a great little program that also provides a neat "sticky pad" function.

Cons

The only negative I can think of is that I didn't find this little gem sooner.
