    Instead of just designing something, I’m trying to actually build something too, as a personal side project. It’s a full screen countdown timer. There are many online timers, but I want to make one that is as big as possible. Also it should not look and sound obnoxious.

    I’ve put a lot of time getting the details how I think they’re good. Love to get feedback!

    This looks great, works great (at least based on the little time I spent with it) and thank you for making it a free tool anyone can use.

    Cool. Try and extend the time in the HTML title tag so that a user can see the time remaining without having to switch back to the tab.

      Here's a quick sample. You can paste this in the dev console of a browser to see it in action: var i = 60; function tick() { window.document.title = 'Time: ' + i--; } setInterval(tick, 1000);

    This is fun. Love the ending 10 second beeps and the gong with animated gradient for the finish.

      Thanks for noticing. I never really did sound any sound design before, so I literally did what they teach in the introductory sound design from LinkedIn Learning: moving knobs and sliders in Ableton Live until a xylophone sample sounds as desired.

    I think that it is an incredible application but I already have this sort of technology available on my phone so I find no use for it.

    Pretty cool. From design and utility perspective.

    Can you create one for random number generation as well?

    Something as slick. Feel free to ask for specific use case, if that helps.

      Is it related to using a countdown timer?

        This is good already. Just add one more page for generating random numbers.

          It’s actually quite a lot of work to make and maintain even a seemingly simple app like this. As I don’t even know what the purpose of your request is, I think I’m not going to. If you need some pointers to get started yourself, I’d be happy to provide those!

            No problem.. :) Thought it'd be nice to see. Will probably take a swing at it myself.

      Hey mate, I'll ask your use case. What you looking for?

        Often I need to generate a random number for running lucky draw during events.

        I know there are a bunch of tools to do that but I am looking something slick and well-designed one which feels good to be shown to the audience during lucky draw.

    Thanks! What do you like? What would you change, add or remove?

      I think @Taylor Cooney's comment above about updating the browser tab title is a small and nice addition (the bonus is it is easy to implement).
