New, but unsigned - Easy StopWatch for Symbian

Published by at

Pulling a number of tricks from Symbian's armoury in terms of performance and capability, brand new application Easy StopWatch seems to pull no punches. It's screenshotted below, though note that, free of the Nokia Store and such considerations, it's distributed as an 'unsigned' utility. Which, these days, just means that you have to be running a Symbian device with custom firmware installed - probably a large chunk of the AAS readership...

From the download page:

Easy StopWatch is a innovative Timer Application for Symbian Anna, Belle and higher Smart Phones.

It includes Lap support, Screensaver never times out, Global OS notifications, 5 built in countdown sounds and option to choose your own Audio from your device, great user settings, quick, smart and AMOLED friendly UI.

A slightly unconventional UI in terms of menu, but this free utility works as advertised...

A decent set of (ahem) settings, plus the main stopwatch function, here with several split times recorded (NB: not so much 'lap's, though, you'd have to break out the calculator for those....)

Trying the countdown timer function, setting up a ten minute test and then kicking it off. It carries on even if you lock the phone's screen, this being a well written app on a fully multitasking OS...

When the timer elapses, the alarm sounds, the LEDs flash, the phone vibrates.... and this message appears. Hard to miss!!

Lovely little addition to the Symbian app stable. You can download Easy StopWatch here if you know that you can install it. Comments welcome!
