A good countdown timer allows you to keep an eye on the time left until the deadline is reached. If you are working on a project, it is very important that you keep good track of the passing time if you want to complete it before the submission date/ time arrives. We have previously covered timers including Free Countdown Timer, a lightweight reminder that reminds you about important tasks, and WatchMe that lets you create multiple timers, add description, choose custom sounds and select applications to run upon countdown completion,h however, you have to let the application keep running in the background at all times in order to keep the timer running. Today we have another countdown timer for you called yTimer2. It is an application for Windows that allows you to set up multiple countdown timers, receive audio and text notification alerts, and open files when the counter reaches zero. Unlike WatchMe, if you close yTimer2 when there are active timers in it, restarting the application will automatically load the timers with the correct remaining time. Time can be specified in days, hours, minutes and seconds.
yTimer2 has some preset timers at the right side, including timers for 10 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute and 5 minutes. Other than that, you can define the exact number of seconds and minutes for your timer between the range of 1-999. Options are available at the bottom to set a Timer Description, Enable/Disable sound alarm, Repeat timer, Run a file and select if you want the alarm to sound upon completion of countdown or at a specific user-specified time.
To add a new timer, select New from the right side, enter description, countdown time and click Apply. All Active and Inactive timers appear in the main interface.
When the countdown is complete, you will receive a notification in the form of the default Windows notification bubble, as well as a popup window on your desktop. If you have selected to Make a noise and Run a file options while making the timer, the application will also sound an alarm and open the specified file.
yTimer2 works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
