If you’re looking for a fast UI kitchen timer app, check out XDA forum member Charles Darke’s little Android app.
The XDA dev wrote the free app for power users who want a fast UI. You just need to key in the timer delay in minutes and hit the ‘Add’ button and the timer will begin.
Features of the app include:
- Ergonomic timer entry
- Does not acquire wake-locks and so will not drain your battery unlike other timers
- Uses system alarm manager and robustly stores alarms so that the alarm doesn’t fail when the app is closed
- Less aggressive/annoying timer sound (rooster loops every few seconds instead of without delay)
- Less aggressive/annoying vibrate settings (as above)
For more information including the link to the QR code, head on over to the application thread._________
