SenTi – Sense Timer with New Sense UI
The portal recently featured an article about a timer app for Android, but this one is for Windows Mobile and is based on the Sense UI SDK.
XDA forum member LucasR93 has coded a smart timer application that adapts to the new Sense UI. SenTi also takes advantage of accelerometer input by using a shaking function.
In order to stop the ring of the timer, all you have to do is shake your mobile device from left to right! Alternatively if you’re worried about dropping your phone, you can just press the button.
Currently, the user interface has two available languages – English and German. Although, LucasR93 has mentioned that French and Italian may be in the works.
