A full screen, settable countdown timer with audio prompts

editor's review



countDownTimer is a tiny tool that lets you set up a countdown timer, as the name suggests. It can be seamlessly figured out, even by novice users.

This is a portable piece of kit, so installing countDownTimer is not required. It is suffice to drop the executable file on any location of the hard drive and run it.

However, countDownTimer may also be saved to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, and run on any computer; thus, you can keep it in your pocket whenever you're on the move.

What's more important is that Windows Registry does not get updated, and no files are left on the hard drive after deleting the app.

countDownTimer is initialized in full screen mode. The interface is plain, but it has a well-organized layout. The timer's minutes and seconds can be written in the Setup area, and you can make configure some preferences.

For instance, you can use the Clipboard as a means for text-to-speech conversions, schedule the countdown to automatically start and to provide audio for the last 10 seconds of the timer, as well as use endpoint audio announcement and make the tool automatically exit when the timer expires. Furthermore, you can use a key to pause the countdown at any time.

The simplistic tool is easy to configure by users with no experience in software applications, thanks to its intuitive features. It runs on a low CPU and system memory and has a good response time. We have not encountered any problems in our testing. Although the utility clearly requires some updates, (as it is noticed in the GUI's appearance), countDownTimer offers a straightforward solution to initializing a countdown timer.
