Found a good Android phone dlg timer

To all lucky enough to own an Android phone........I stumbled across a free countdown timer that looks like it will work great for dlg contests. I set it for 3 minutes and it spoke out loud the time left at both 2 and 1 minutes. It also called out 45, 30, 10, 4, 3, 2 and 1 seconds. Just thought I'd share. I did not search to see if this has been discussed before but do not recall ever seeing one for a non I-phone phone.

It is called (ironically enough)........wait for it.....wait for it........Timer

Here is the link on AppBrain:

Cheers,
Brian

Have you tried this? F3K Timer
http://www.f3k.biz/

I've loaded it on my Moto Droid. Seems to work pretty good for the F3K tasks.

Hey Bob, just installed it and works great. I had not seen that one before. I like how all of the tasks are already included and it is very easy to just pick one and fly. The one thing that I do like a lot about Timer is the audible feedback on your time left and how it lets you know more frequently as you get closer to zero. I think if the F3K app had this as an option it would be the perfect timer. If you have someone timing for you in a contest then this is a non issue. But for practicing tasks all by your lonesome, the audible feedback seems like it would be great.

Thanks,
Brian

The help menu for F3K Timer indicates you can turn sound on or off. I haven't found any indication that there are any sound cues with the program. I'll ask Vitaliy about it. It may be an incompatibility with my Moto Droid or setup.

I have a samsung fascinate and have the sound option enable on the f3k app. Like your moto I too cannot hear any sound or notification.

Too Much, Too Much. Next thing you know, we'll all be watching our DLGs during a contest with satellite images. Two stop watches and a medium size clip board with a couple of pens please.

OK, this year I will finally get myself a cell phone so my wife can keep tabs on me. But that's as far as I go.

The bar code points to a dead URL. Just go to the droid market and search for F3K.
