Editors' Review

Free Timer allows you to set an alarm for anything you need and then displays the countdown to that time on a clock display on your desktop. No matter what event or deadline you have upcoming, this timer will help you keep track of it so you're not late or rushing at the last minute.

This app features a streamlined and functional interface, which is dominated by a large clock face. You can set the alarm for any time in the future using the hour, minute, and second display in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. Once you've done that, the amount of time remaining will show up as a colored wedge on the clock face and starting the timer will cause the second hand to begin to tick backwards, counting down to the specified time. You can adjust the color of the clock display, with options of red, blue, orange, or green for the time-remaining wedge, and your choice of either a black or a white background.

A metronome ticking effect is available, and you can set it to tick every second, every five seconds, every minute, or always. You can also expand the clock face to fill the full screen, making it easy to see how much time you have left, even if you're not sitting right in front of your computer. There are also 15 different alarm tones you can choose from, and a digital timer display runs along with the clock face. This app is free, it's easy to use, and it delivers on everything it promises.
