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.

Currently, the user interface has two available languages – English and German. Although, LucasR93 has mentioned that French and Italian may be in the works.

As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
