TimeWatcher is an  app for the Windows Mobile platform that adds time related functions to the phone.  Unfortunately due to the demise of the WindowsMobile platform (now superseded by WindowsPhone) TimeWatcher is no longer available nor supported on WindowsMobile. However TimeWatcher for WindowsPhone was developed and is available to download here. The app binary for the WindowsMobile version is available on request.

Released: 29th April 2010


TimeWatcher adds time related functions to your Windows Mobile device. The app includes three countdown timers with progression bars to visualise how long is left timing and a stopwatch. Times can be entered through a finger friendly interface where you can specify days, hours, minutes or seconds; it’s perfect whether you need to time you’re cooking or sporting activities.

The phone can be put to sleep, or you can continue using other applications whilst the timer is timing; when the time elapses the phone wakes up with a custom alarm tone and system notification so you will always know when it completes.

The stopwatch can be used at the same time or separately. It shows hours, minutes, seconds and milliseconds and enables you to have unlimited laps with split and total times displayed; you can also export the list of times to a text file. As with the timer, the stopwatch will continue working whilst other applications are running or the system is put to sleep.
