Leave Your Stopwatch at Home Thanks to Simple Stopwatch and Timer for Android
Smart phones are wonderful tools because not only do they allow us to avoid boredom thanks to addictive games such as Angry Birds, but they have also become the modern-day Swiss Army Knife. Aiding smart phones everywhere in their quest for world dominance by obviating the need to carry traditional gadgets, XDA forum member spawn782 has created an application that allows you to leave that stopwatch and timer at home.
This new developer’s first (and impressive) app features a traditional stopwatch (along with lap timer), a countdown timer, and a repeating countdown timer useful for recurring alarms. In the words of the developer:
I used a Tmobile G2 for my testing which has a hdpi screen, 480×800.. so if you guys with different screen resolutions and tablets can let me know if you have any problems with the way the program layout etc please let me know, I would really appreciate your feedback. I tried using the emulator but it would crash frequently on my pc. Let me know what features you would like that this lacks.
Its a free Stopwatch with three modes
1) Stopwatch with Lap Timer
2) Countdown Timer
3) Repeating Countdown Timer (Select repeating Timer when setting countdown time) E.g Alarm beeps every 1 minute, can be used for circuit training etc)
I also added a Lap Stats function which shows your fastest lap, slowest lap and avg speed.
Continue on to the application thread to further smart phone world dominance, and be sure to leave some feedback in the thread while you’re at it!
