Freeware timer

OK here's another freeware recommendation, this one from It's called Multi Timer and it's just a little utility that does one thing and does it extremely well: provide you with 10 countdown/countup timers that you can see at a glance.

And it has a pleasant alert sound.

I'm using it right now to help me crank through my backlog of 150 emails in 15-minute bursts.


  • It would be better if it was an mp3 playlist generator: find N tracks and assemble them into an approximation of the time you need.

    When the music stops, so does the reading of email, as you have to interact with your mp3 / timer again...

  • And would you believe it actually remembers the times you set, even between closing it and re-opening it? Good program!

    clockwerx - love the idea of music as timer!!

  • Hi GVM - I store my photos in Flickr, and I've put a Flickr badge on the sidebar. Flickr's great!

  • Good looking software but its approx $50 (NOT freeware) as of Sept 2008.
