Cook Timer Portable 0.9.2 has been released. Cook Timer is a simple countdown timer that lets you count off a set amount of time. It's handy for remembering to take breaks, time-boxing your work day, cooking and more. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Suite. And it's open source and completely free.
Cook Timer has presets for 3, 5, 10 and 15 minutes and lets you set a custom time in hours, minutes and seconds. A progress bar lets you easily see the time remaining visually. An alarm will beep briefly when time is up. It can optionally be set to beep until you disable it. The timer can also automatically restart once time is up allowing you to mark off a specific amount of time continuously.
