Freeware: Stopwatch/Countdown with Time Machine for Nokia 5800 and S60 5th Edition

| May 15, 2009 | 6 Replies

timemachine The Time Machine app for the Nokia 5800 is both a stop watch and a countdown timer. When the countdown reaches zero, an alarm sounds. Pretty useful if  you’re cooking something or as a parking meter alert. Yeah, you can use the general alarm clock but it’s easier to put in “n” minutes countdown and constantly see throughout how many minutes you have left.

There’s a dedicated app for S60 third edition called Parking Buddy just for countdown – it’s even got a nifty siren as an alarm that made my friend pull over on the side of the road when she thought it was an actual police car. This is a nicer solution given that it does both countdown and stop watch.

A friend of mine recommended I use stop watches for revision – to actually tally the amount I’m spending revising as opposed to sitting on my arse looking like I’m revising.

If you want a count down for sport/running you’ll be better off with Nokia Sports Tracker, as that logs your GPS route, speed, altitude, steps taken as well as your Lap times.

Anyway, Time Machine for 5800 is available to download for free from
