Hi,

I want to contribute my first application written in VS2005 VB.NET Compact Framework.

.NET Compact Framework must be installed on your device. Application needs around 700kb of memory.

This is a simple timer application with four configurable countdown timers. Set an description and a time (hh:mm:ss) and stop/start/reset timer with your fingers only. No need to use the stylus pen.
Touch the timer ones will start it. Touch it twice will stop it. Tap&Hold the timer will reset it. Needs no more explanation. The app is self explaining.
  • You can change the background image
  • You can change the audio wave notification file
  • You will get an vibrating response from your device on start/stop/reset timer
  • If a timer is running your device will not enter standby/sleep until all running timers count zero (configurable). If you want to use a long timer be aware of battery usage. Be sure that your backlight switches off after some time. If your device switch off for any reason, you will not be notified that a timer count zero. The application isn't able to switch your device on.
  • Settings are stored in registry "HKLM\Software\M_G\TouchWatch" and all configurable from the application.

THIS IS A BETA RELEASE FOR TESTING...QVGA ONLY...NO LANDSCAPE MODE...

Installation: Just copy the .cab to your device and execute it. You will find an icon in the start menu.

Version history:
v1.1b: -edit timer window now opens with buttons instead with the menu.
-added vibrate response features
v1.0b: first release (beta)

TODO:
  • Add stopwatch functionality
  • Use gestures to reset and edit timer
  • D-Pad support (maybe)
  • Landscape support (maybe)


Source code
You will find the source code of the project as attachment. You are allowed to enhance this or use this as example or whatever.

Support me with a donation for future developments

Thank you!

New version is released!

hello,

nice app! can i make a suggestion ?

it would be great if you could add d-pad control! since then we could use this app on non-touchscreen devices (smartphones) also.

thank you in advance!

That is exactly what I was looking for for workouts in the gym.

Good work, lopez1_de!!!


Suggestions:

- Typo in options menu: should be "off", not "of"

- Some feedback when you start a timer would be nice, so you don't have to watch the seconds in order to see if it's running. Maybe a short vibrate or the timer's panel flashing.

- Maybe a left-right sweep across a timre's panel yould open that timer's configuration screen?


Thanks for that program.

Cheers,
nc

Thank you all for suggestions and ideas. Nice to hear that you like it. I will try to implement the following things into the next version:
  • Feedback on start/stop/reset
  • Config button for each timer

bye

EDIT: In the moment I have no ideas how to implement d-pad control.

Yes, I know about it. But I'm only a hobby programmer. I'm not able to write C code.
But the speed of the timer on my Elf is perfect. The only little problem is that the application uses ~840kb of memory while running.

Thanks a lot!
