Editors' Review

+

Keeping track of time is an important element of life. Unfortunately, your desktop clock might not do the trick. XNote Stopwatch tries to be the solution to tracking your time.

This program presents itself as a large LCD clock that tracks everything from hundredths of seconds on up. Below the numbers are four simple cues, Start/Stop, Snap, Reset, and More, but it wasn't immediately clear what each one offered. For example, the More option takes you to a drop-down menu that gives users options to adjust color, transparency, font, and more. Still, it takes little time to explore this program. The most useful aspect is the toggle between stopwatch and countdown. The countdown lets you adjust the timer to any combination of hours and minutes, and alerts you when you have run out of time.

Don't expect anything fancy with this download. XNote Stopwatch functions very simply and does not offer many frills. If you absolutely cannot live without a stopwatch in your life, you could do worse than this simple download.

"Great for contract minute to minute billing"

October 26, 2010  |  By Investlots

 |  Version: XNote Stopwatch 1.5

Pros

I use it to keep track of how long each task takes in a project. I use Excel and have the time for each line item updated by using the SNAP feature. Once SNAP button is pressed, the time taken to accomplish the task is updated in the cell I chose.

Cons

none I have noticed.

Summary

Very intuitive and excellent for project management.

"Glad I found your product!"

October 18, 2010  |  By EspoProductions

 |  Version: XNote Stopwatch 1.5

Pros

Awesome product guys! I will be using this next weekend to place on a script for the comedian Dane Cook while he performs. The producer sent me a link for "Timeleft" which is what they use. I downloaded it and thought it sucked.

Cons

Would like to customize the background/boarder more.

Summary

Love it, perfect for what I'm doing.

"Great product, great service."

October 14, 2010  |  By ayala7

 |  Version: XNote Stopwatch 1.5

Pros

It's very functional and flexible, and what's more, when I had a problem with compatibility to an older version, I got an amazingly quick and efficient support.

Cons

I can't see none.

"Simply the best on the web - I looked at over a dozen!"

November 02, 2009  |  By 119K

 |  Version: XNote Stopwatch 1.5

Pros

Simple, robust, rock solid. Used daily for a week and never failed. Counts down THEN counts up while flashing. Full featured (visual and audio). Used special edition with internal warnings -- key feature. Nearly perfect. It earns 9.9 out of 10!!

Cons

No real cons! Would like to see special internal warning feature integrated into the main program - will supercharge an already outstanding timer. Suggest adding ability to change background and text color "on the fly" with the internal warning.

Summary

I used a special freeware version every day for a solid week before buying a license. Performed flawlessly. Though i was finished with my project, i felt that such a quality product should be financially supported so I bought a license for future use. This timer worked reliably, was easy to modify as needed, and helped us execute the meeting on schedule. My functional requirements (must have) were (1) countdown and then count up at the end of the countdown time.(2) internal programmable warning. (3) audio warning and end-of-time tone (4) adjustable size to fill screen of laptop. (5) visual warning at end of time (6) at easy to use. A couple of desirable traits were (1) ability to change the background and font color on the fly in sequence with the internal warnings. (2) ability to save configurations easily w/o having to write an executable batch code. I found a specially modified program that Dimitry had posted on the web that gave me all six of my "must haves". This program is terrific! The ability to play my own wav files is an added feature.

"Great application, just what we needed"

March 13, 2009  |  By lizandtony

 |  Version: XNote Stopwatch 1.5

Pros

After integration it looks like a part of the main application I developed for in-house use and was able to be integrated in a way that people with no PC skills are able to use easily. Support by the developer is outstanding.

Cons

None. The ability to customise the border in compact mode would be great but no big deal.

Summary

No negatives of any significance, a minor problem with the application related to calling it from batch files was fixed by the developer within a couple of hours of me e-mailing him. Excellent support.

March 02, 2009  |  By ehab_

Pros

i wanted a simple timer that will beep at certain intervals. XNote Stopwatch is my choice and i recommend it. Very light on resources provides beep, launch application for both stopwatch and timer. Author support is good.

Cons

I didn't come across a negative side - none -

Summary

I highly recommend XNote Stopwatch, Author welcomes feature requests and nothing more to add but say its a tool i will certainly use.
