I recently switched from an iPhone to the HTC Dream (T-Mobile G1) Android phone.  I am a huge fan of the Android operating system and I started writing applications for it.  My first application is “Touch Timer”. I developed this application after not being happy with any of the timer applications on the market.

Touch Timer is a countdown timer application with an intuitive touch interface.  You input your time by scrolling up and down on the appropriate number or by pressing the plus and minus buttons.  The alarm will go off even if the phone is asleep.  You can set the alarm to honor or override the silent/vibrate mode depending on user preference.  Alert sound is user selectable.

You can download Touch Timer for free from the Android market.

    Wow, it seems like we’ve had the same idea 🙂

    I was not happy with the existing timer applications either and started writing one. Mine is also inspired by the iPhone one, so it is very similar. Yours is in a more advanced state, though.

    I’ve not published it yet, I was planning on doing it in the next days.
