SnapTimer is a small Windows application designed specifically for helping you time your activities with the aid of a countdown timer.

The advantages of being portable

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to create random words on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

Simple GUI

The tool implements an intuitive behavior that allows even less experienced users to easily discover and tweak its functions. There are two handy buttons embedded in the primary panel that enable you to start, pause, or stop the countdown timer.

Configuration settings

SnapTimer gives you the possibility to set a user-defined time for the countdown timer (in minutes), reset the entire information with just one click, save the current settings, and make the countdown timer remain on top of other utilities.

What’s more, you are allowed to loop the audio alarm, play a ticking sound, and set up personalized alarms with support for user-defined text messages, popup notifications, custom audio files, and custom programs. Last but not least, you can alter the text of the timer in terms of font, color, and background color.


During our testing we have noticed that SnapTimer Joiner carries out a task quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. As it would be expected from such a small utility, it remains light on system resources, so it doesn’t hamper computer performance, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.

Bottom line

To sum things up, SnapTimer proves to be a reliable application that comes bundled with plenty of configuration settings, and is suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
