Around The Clock is a timing application that works as an alarm clock, a stopwatch, and a countdown timer. Therefore, you can use the tool to remind you about important events you don't want to miss and to measure both the elapsed time and the remaining time of specific running processes.

With a minimalist appearance, the program is very easy to use. The interface is split into three modules, corresponding to the tool's main functions. Setting an alarm is done easily, since all you need to do is add the new alarm, rename it the way you wish, and determine the activation time. Once enabled, you are informed about the remaining time until the alarm goes off. The tool allows you to set a custom sound by browsing your computer in search of a music file of your choice. The stopwatch function is also easy to manage – you just need to add a new task and start the timing process. What is good about this feature is that the tool can record both the lap and the split times of an interval you measure. Configuring the countdown option doesn't differ much from the alarm clock and the stopwatch functions. It supports setting the time to measure and selecting a custom sound to notify you when the countdown is off.

In short, Around The Clock comprises three timing tools into a single application. With a modular appearance, you can easily switch between modes in order to configure them individually each time the situation requires it.
