AlaTimer is a great help for parents caring for their kids time-spending. This tiny application will allow you to set specific hours for computer and Internet usage of your child.
The interface is quite intuitive and easy to use with the Flintstones family characters as a very nice touch to it. To see how much time have already been spent and what time's left you need to hover your mouse over the icon of Fred Flingstone. When the time's up, a pop-up message will offer you to save your work before you will be logged off.
AlaTimer has the AlaFredy tool included allowing parents to connect to other computers on the same network to see the time already spent and yet remaining. The tool will also help you to add and remove AlaTimer users.
AlaTimer is a shareware utility. You can try the software for 30 days and decide whether you want to purchase the license at $26.00.
