This dull, basic timer brings with it limited options and settings. Timer 2 has a small, gray interface with a Demo Version nag frustratingly blocking the timer's countdown/count-up screen. The utility is designed to resemble your numeric keypad, although it includes a Start button and the obscured timer screen. You can click Start to begin the countup or use your mouse or keyboard to set input the number of hours, minutes, and seconds for the countdown. When the timer ends, a high-pitched alarm will ring until you hit Stop. Unlike similar timer apps, this one doesn't provide any customization settings, nor does it let you set alarms or personal reminders. Though it's easy to use, users are better off looking for other timers with a larger feature set.
