COUNT DOWN TIMER

2018 年 9 月 12 日 Comments off

I was looking for a count down timer
I can use in my Windows7 PC.

 

Since last week, I’ve been trying
“Pomodoro Technique” to work efficiently.
Recently I was having a trouble
to work productively.
I lost focus easily.
Even if I spent all day long
in front of my PC, I couldn’t do
drawing as much as I want.

 

Then, I found this technique.
Yeah, it’s not new.
It became kinda popular in 2011, right???
I totally forgot about it.

 

Well, it seems that lots of
creators like me have the similar
trouble especially when they work longer.

 

Anyway, I was looking for
a software that runs in Windows7
for this method.
(Not for Mac nor Win10 nor Android app.)

 

I wanted it to,

 

-Have time-timer like appearance
that I can visually enhance how many minutes left.
Not digital numbers!!!
I can’t feel how many more minutes to go
by seeing, “00:09:45”

-Have the function to customize the alarm sound.
I don’t like sharp beeping sounds.
What’s the heck. I’m an old man.
Sharp beeping sounds really risk my health!

-Come always on top of the other applications
because I want to see the timer whenever I want.

 

Though I don’t think it’s complicated request,
I had a hard time to find any!
(There are tons of those for Mac
and mobile phone apps. Oh yeah, that’s
Windows)

 

HOWEVER!

 

At last, I found out this application.

Actually…..the name is too simple.

“Free Timer”

(Though the image is showing UI in Japanese,
the application automatically follow the language
your OS based. Moreover you can choose it).

 

 

ALAS!

FINALLY!

This is it!

This is exactly I was looking for!

YES! YES! YES!

I am so happy now.
