The free version is very limited and stopped working after I tried to make the font size larger. Too bad, because I wanted to purchase the pro version but, alas, I will find another option.

It has great additional and a lot of customization I didn't find with other counters. I purchased the pro version and was fully pleased with the value and functionality
