XgD's Countdown


 Share

Recommended Posts

This app has been around a while now, but having just done a big update on it and brought it up to version 2.0 I thought i'd move it out its original forum in Software Discussion/Assistance down to here. Dominik originally asked for it and it grew from there, and as people asked for features, I added them.

It can sit transparent on your desktop, or tick away in your system tray. I tried to make it as customisable as possible, but if you wish me to add anything, tell me!

If anyone wants to contribute any names/icons/feedback/new-features/bugs, PM or e-mail me (my e-mail is on the settings tab of the app)

I've attatched a screenshot anyway.

Thanks

a stupid small request, but I would love it if somehow, when I startup my computer or something, I get almost like an audio thing, which kinda reminds me of the countdown, this is especially true if you have like, maybe a few minutes left for an auction to end, and you want a reminder then, not when the time ends.

Ofcourse, you could specify the audio file yourself and the time intervals the audio file kinda starts or something to remind you of it. For example, I would love it to have like a project due in the next 2 days and when I start up my computer, it makes this noise which kinda tells me to stop slacking of and get to work. I don't know, I know it will definately help me.

So, basically:

1. specify audio file for

2. notifications BEFORE the countdown ends which you can customize.

Thanks,

OK, added an option for reminders :D

I'll add the sound option soon.

Anything else??

thanks

another silly request, but I think it can make things easier. Instead of just having around 4 locations where this program can sit on, would it also be possible to check a box and then be able to drag the counter around anywhere you want on your desktop?

That was one of the first features that came in. Right click it, and unlock its position. Should I make this option more clear do you think?

It does mention this on the position tab if you read at the bottom

XgD - Hey I have a request! How about a snooze button... that would reset the clock to a predetermined future time, like when you hit snooze on your alarm clock.

Just uploaded version 2.5. I think its pretty secure now... no bugs I can see, a lot been done to it.

New version adds startup support, and a few neatness updates & bug fixes.
