Default [APP] Simple Stopwatch and Timer [Android App 2.1+ ]

Hi, I am new to the forum and just built my first app, and I wanted to put it here for you guys to use and give me feedback about what you like, what you don't like if you think its useful?
I hope this is the right forum and I am not breaking any rules by posting here.( I read the sticky first)

NEW! Interval Training Mode Added.

Unfortunately, I decided to go ad supported as I spent many weeks on this
donations amounted to less that $4.00

However I am offering the paid / donate version (no ads and can save more exercises in the interval training mode)
free of charge to those who helped me and are continually helping me with the development of this via feedback and suggestions.
Just email me and I will send you a copy.

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.

Version 1.0.7 (update)
  • Elapsed Time and Remaining Time on Notification Bar (Updates every minute) -c00ller
  • Fixed Menu Settings (User preferences should work now) - lots of reports about this one
  • Added Lap counter text in landscape mode. - fifarunner
  • Automatically remove zeros, when user enters time via keypad. - c00ller




Updates
  • Added User Preferences to enable / disable haptic feedback
  • Changed the UI/ Layout a bit, you can now select modes by pressing icons at the bottom of the screen
  • Added a service that should keep the Stopwatch from timing out, I would really appreciate it if you can let me know if the problem still exists.
  • Added an option to allow the stop button to register as a lap.
  • Reduced the font size to make landscape mode work on LDPI devices
More features coming soon...hopefully I will be able to roll out updates a bit faster in the future.


Features and Issues requested and pointed out by users...Thanks Everyone for your continuing feedback.

Current Issue
-Need to create service to keep watch running in background [Gusar]
-Landscape on ldpi devices not showing correctly [fiffarunner]


Feature Requests by Members
-Add multiple timers [JVogler]
-Fix Lap layout in landscape [Alouch]
-Lap recorded on Stop and export laptimes [JimmyN]
-Add vibration rather than sound option on alarm [A.Priori]
-Save timers [treesurf]
-Custom Alarm tones [beardedchild]



EDIT: I also forgot to mention I used a Tmobile G2 for my testing which has a hdpi screen, 480x800.. 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.

Sweeeet! Simple, but does the job. And looks good while doing it too.

One problem: Exit the app while the countdown is running and when the timer reaches zero, I'm greeted by the alarm and a force close message.
And a suggestion: An icon in the statusbar if there's a countdown running in the background.

I'm so disgusted with SPB Time (a not cheap paid app) missing alarms and draining battery with no support from developers...I uninstalled. I miss the repeating countdown timer for my heavy-bag work though. Going to give this a try and report back.

Will be running on Atrix BTW

EDIT: Just tried, would be great to have multiple timers at once. One to sound every minute, and then a different sound every 3 minutes. A way to achieve that would make it possible to do a whole workout without ever having to reset timer.

It looks great so far though!

Thanks for the feedback JVogler, I am glad that you mentioned that, because that is on my list a timer that can be set at different intervals. Right now I am working on keeping the timer running in the background as a Service, (thanks Gusar for reporting the issue).

Hi spawn782

thanks for the app, nice and sleek.
I was missing this since I go Cyanogen.

Just something with the landscape mode, I think it should be redesigned a little.
As you can see on screenshot, the bottom is half cut when taking lap, and when taking new lap, it stays on the first (when it can maybe autoscroll ?).
Maybe you can just remove the grey at the top ?

Otherwise, very nice app, and keep your effort updating it
It's a 5 star for me.

very nice indeed! thanks

One question, why does it need internet access, as you don't have any advertisements?
