Minute Timer is just a lightweight timer that displays a notification window when the defined time expires.
There are plenty of similar products on the market, but Minute Timer tries to set itself apart with the simplicity factor.
As you probably know, simplicity is greatly appreciated most of the time, so such a principle should perfectly match a timer. Well, yes and no.
First of all, Minute Timer comes with basic options, all of them grouped in a tiny window. Just input the value to configure the time, start it and you’re ready to go. Additionally, the app displays only a single setting, to auto pause timer when the main window is minimized.
On the other hand, there are no advanced configuration options, so the only notification you get is a simple dialog telling you that the time has expired. No audio or more complex alerts, so it’s all very basic.
The good thing is that Minute Timer remains very light on hardware resources all the time and it works smoothly on any Windows version out there. In essence a countdown timer, it can always keep an icon in the System Tray, but that doesn’t affect system performance at all.
Overall, Minute Timer is a handy project that clearly fails to impress professional users. It can obviously help a handful of users, but it’s just one of the most basic countdown timers out there.
