Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Apr 12, 2009

There are a million reasons why computer users time themselves. Whether they are poor time managers, have an important appointment to keep, or need to track time spent on a task, there certainly is a need for TimeRecorder. However, that simple task is made too complicated by this flawed download.

TimeRecorder's simplistic interface looks a bit outdated, but allows users to record time spent on specific tasks. Users can even set a reminder to alert them when they have been working on a project too long. In addition, users are able to catalog their time and save a log, which may be useful in reviewing how one's day is spent.

Unfortunately, these simple results are complicated by limited options and a lack of explanation. Instead of functioning like a moving stopwatch, this timer simply tells you the clock time when you start and what time you stop, making users wonder whether it works for the first minute. Mysterious options like Inverse, Remark, and Rate could have users spending more time in the Help file instead of getting tasks done. Also, in an attempt to help catalog activity, users are only given a short drop down list of tasks. If your day doesn't consist of Sports, Study, Play, Work, Web surfing, or Take a rest, you are out of luck. The demo version is limited to 43 uses, but users may want to opt out before even downloading this trial.

There are free timers on the market that are simpler and more intuitive than TimeRecorder and we recommend trying one of those first.
