    PROS: Simple and easy to use. Application doesn’t require any advanced computer skills. The app can be used to control when your computer turns on/off. The app comes with a reminder feature which is quite handy.
    CONS: Application lacks customizable features. In some instances shut down/restart actions may not be executed. The application can, from time to time, cause your system to slow down. Requires a 64-bit operating system to be used.
  2. PROS: Easy to use. Realistic visuals. A range of alarm sounds. Customizable snooze time.
    CONS: Doesn’t let you set multiple alarms. Turn-off button is difficult to see from a distance. Fullscreen mode UI could be better. Requires a 64-bit processor.
  3. PROS: Easy to use. Tucks away neatly in the background. Supports CSV exports. Responsive support team.
    CONS: Intervals cannot be edited on the fly. Needs more customization. Keyboard controls could be better. Lacks a persistent dialog.

    PROS: Setting up the clocks takes less than five minutes. Convenient for people who work with different time zones. Display as many as ten clocks in your taskbar. Doesn’t prevent your computer from going into sleep mode.
    CONS: The icons and flags look dated. You cannot add specific cities. The instructions on use are severely lacking. There is no hide option or menu-only option.
  6. PROS: Flexibility: you decide how long your breaks last. Useful for self-discipline and accountability for tasks needing to get done. Dark mode means no worries about it being too distracting. Takes up very little space on your device.
    CONS: Timer flexibility can be twofold; you could cheat by taking longer breaks. No option to track total working hours for the day. Probably not worth price if you already have other timers. Doesn't track how many breaks you've taken.
  7. PROS: This application will display on all desktops. The transparency can be adjusted. The current date will be displayed alongside the time. Highly realistic displays.
    CONS: The clock can only be moved after a double click. Some icons are more detailed than others. Certain users wish that more data could be displayed. The size of the clock cannot be changed.

    PROS: Track time across a variety of different devices. Supports time tracking for both individuals and teams. Includes dark and light themes. Searching and archiving features make finding historical data easier.
    CONS: Tyme iOS app for mobile devices is a separate purchase. While some features are free, arguably the most useful ones are locked behind a paywall. Lacks the depth of features of more established competitors. Features like mileage tracking and expenses feel out of place.
  11. PROS: This program requires an incredibly small amount of memory. Excellent functionality for a free application. Can be integrated across multiple platforms. Up to six members can use this app.
    CONS: Only 64-bit processors are supported. CSS may experience some issues when loading. There are times when white text may appear on a white background. Somewhat slower when compared to professional versions.
  12. PROS: Simple and minimalistic. Easy to customize. Visualization options (such as pie charts). Smooth notifications.
    CONS: Blue font is jarring. Layouts could be better. No subcategories option. Downloading work history can be a hassle.

    PROS: You may show or hide the interface. Has alert, shutdown and sleep functions. The app has three preference settings. Very easy to operate.
    CONS: Missing simple features such as manual number input. The user interface is too big and the size cannot be reduced. It stops working in the background if you play games. Timer Boom doesn't allow you to save timer schedules.
  18. PROS: Easy to use. Keeps your day on track. Reminds you to take a break. Simple and intuitive interface.
    CONS: Can be a little annoying with constant reminders. Initial set up can be time-consuming. Navigation in the app could do with improvement. Could do with more features like an alarm.

    PROS: It is free to download and use. You get to change the way your timer looks. Very small and very easy to install. Takes just moments to set up.
    CONS: The design is a little lackluster. There are very few instructions on how it is used. May be too simple looking for some people. It would be better smaller with fatter numbers.
