You find hundreds of stopwatches and timers in the Android store over at Google Play and it can be quite difficult to find the best for your needs. Ultimate Stopwatch & Timer has been in the store for a long time, and it is without doubt one of the most popular apps in the stopwatch niche.
The latest version of the application is available for download on Google Play. Just download it to the local device and install it to start using it.
The application uses a simple interface that puts the focus on timing events. It displays several tabs at the top of the interface that lead to different times of timers. Stopwatch is the first and it works just like any physical stopwatch that you may have used in the past.
To use the stopwatch you simply tap on the start button to do so. The time is now tracked and you can use the buttons at the bottom of the screen to pause the time taking, reset it, or add the current time to the lap times listing. You can switch to the lap times tab at any time to look at the times you have previously recorded here.
The countdown tap finally acts as a countdown timer that you can use to count from a specified amount of time down to zero. The maximum is 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds which should be sufficient for the majority of purposes.
It may be useful to keep track of training activity, e.g. going for a walk or jog for an hour, or doing a workout routine.
You can tap on the screen to pause the countdown timer or stopwatch at any time. Alerts can be configured that notify you when a countdown has ended.
Ultimate Stopwatch and Timer is a simple app for Android; while that may put some users off, it may attract others who just want the core functionality that it provides.Advertisement
