  1. Hey guys,

    I have been using your nice little cute program and it is one of the programs that i use daily. I do different things in a day and spare different times for them. And I have a problem with your software, that it does not include a PAUSE BUTTON!... or i can't find it anywhere. For example, i do 35 minutes of freewriting and after 20 minutes i need to go to toilet. I want to pause the timer, but nope, my peeing and taking a dump time - which can take ages sometimes - is included in my freewriting. I just want to pause my timer, while it is counting down and leave my table and when i come back i want to continue from the time i left.
    This pause button shouldn't be a rpoblem for you guys. I like your software and i want to go on using it, but without a pause button, this is not working so well. You can do it guys. Just a pause button. Yes, you can do it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Good day.

  3. I was looking for a countdown widget to remind me to complete certain tasks before the day is up. I couldn't find any "top ten programs for yada yada yada" articles but found and downloaded this program off the bat after reading the reviews. Thanks for this! One feedback I have is the ability to add html links to the task labels. I'm using the timer to remind myself to draw, it'd be cool if I could have the link to the drawing site I use inside my "time to draw" label, and I could click it once the label/alert comes up.

    Thanks again!

    1. Of course, after posting my comment, now I see that you can have a URL open with the alert. Apologies. I'll try that out.

  5. We need to be able to choose either weekdays or weekends only for recurring timers

  6. This free countdown timer seems to have problems if a new alarm comes up before the old one is dismissed. For example, I have a weekly reminder to take out the trash, but this alarm is often not seen because I have another alarm that rings soon after indicating another need. As such, I often end up not taking out the garbage since I don't see this alarm - it has been overwritten by the new alarm. Can the free countdown timer mention all the alarms ringing, so I don't miss one?
