Counting Sheep 0.2

Do you consume lots of caffeine, or just sleep poorly? This Counting Sheep is a exercise, where you have to drag identical white sheep over the bridge (while they are doing backflips). The idea, presumably, is to induce boredom while occupying the mind with something simple, repetitive, and rhythmic, all of which are known to help humans sleep.

The text and idea draws from the Wikipedia article.

When you go to sleep with the application, be sure to plug in the charger. Application will run until the morning (then you will see how many sheep you have counted ). To exit, press the right top corner.

Includes graphics for all display resolutions (except HVGA) and runs on Pocket PC 2002 and higher .

Code:
CHANGELOG

0.1
- Initial release

0.2
+ App will not stay open all night anymore. When you stop counting for 10 minutes, you will be asked if you are sleeping and if you do not start to count again in 15 seconds, the app will end, so the device can sleep too. (tip by simzz)
+ Larger exit button (tip by TrillionChampion)
+ Semitransparent numbers

TO DO:
- HVGA support
- Auto counting
- Saving how many sheep have you counted?

(Version 0.1)



(Version 0.2)

Download here (version 0.2).


Sorry for my English .

Looks great. I have an idea for a feature. Maybe every 15 minutes a screen could come up and say "exiting in 5 seconds" and you would have to tap the screen to keep it open. That way, it wouldn't stay open all night, but if you really are awake and using the app, then you could just tap and renew your 15 minutes. Just an idea, thought it might be kind of useful.

Yes, it should not be a problem. I'll try to add this to next version.

Also a really great idea, certainly I'll add this to the next version, too.


BTW: Now I know why it's good to put your software on the XDA. It's an unlimited source of ideas .
