Editor's Review

Tucows - 5 Cows
Free Auto Shutdown impressed us when we went on our test run for the first time. Uncluttered interface with multiple options listed clearly. It's nothing tricky, but easy to use. And we have trouble imagining any problem that a user might have about it. Moreover, the later test result is a satisfying one, just performing as it advertised.
