I use it daily This is a great app that I use to clock my hours for work everyday. I love that you can set up either an hour/min setting or an end time setting for the countdown (e.g. countdown 4hrs15m, OR countdown to 5:38 pm).

Countdown Timer is great! The numbers are LARGE & easy to set, and though they don't emphasize it there is an alarm! Full range of tones. I will probably replace my other alarm with this, as old one has only a few tones I don't care for.
