Hourglass - Lightweight timer application
Review by on
If you have to wait for something important, but you decide to do something on your computer in the meantime, you may need to set up a reminder, so you don't forget that you have to do something or be somewhere. Furthermore, instead of opting for a solution that is far more complicated than it has to, you can go for Hourglass. This lightweight application has got to be the simplest alarm utility on the Internet. Just tell it when you want to be notified and you can see about your work without having to think of your appointment until you have to.

The application is absolutely free and it works on all popular Windows platforms. It comes in a small package and it can be installed in just a few seconds. The hardware requirements are insignificant, even on older machines and there is no need to install any prerequisite tools to run this application.

All you have to do is type in how much time you wish to wait, on the application's compact user interface. The clock will start counting down and the edges of the interface will fill up like a progress bar, so you can have a better sense of how much time has passed and how much longer you have to wait. When the timer hits zero, the application will start beeping and its interface will start flashing.

When setting up an alarm, you can either type a time just like on a clock or you can combine numbers and words, like "10 seconds" and so on. The timer can be paused and stopped at any time with a single click. Additionally, you can insert a title for your countdown, so you don't forget it's purpose.

Setting up a countdown can't get any easier when using Hourglass.

You only need to type in a time frame and click a button. The application lets you specify a time by using words or numbers.

The beeping sound is not very loud. Also, there are no options for increasing the volume or selecting other sounds.

You can download Hourglass free here.
