There is already a timer/stopwatch on your BB's. Open up the Clock, pres the BB button, you'll see Timer and you'll see Stopwatch.

Well, you already knew that, but just in case...

Ooh, that app sounds cool :D I would use it for my taekwondo sparring matches, and my track times for my 1.5km, 400m, 4x400m and 4x100m runs :D Oh, and I could use it for timing my runs downhill on my longboard too! Whoo :D

I am in IT, so I am constantly measuring network times for simple tasks. I would love a way to store these on my blackberry and email them off. This is sweet!

Leave a comment with what I would do with the app ? I would most likely use it to measure time ;)

Thanks CB !!!

I have been wanting a timer with multiple reminders! It is a polite, gentle way of telling clients our time is up. I would also use it for lecture segments. Wow THANKS!

I guess maybe it is just me, but I don't see much of a need for these BBM connected apps like BB Music and Inquery (just that type, others that update your status and what not are cool).

I have a total of 4 or 5 true BBM contacts (+ text messaging contacts incorporated in to BBM), and there doesn't seem to be much value added to those type of BBM integrated apps for me. In fact, even if all my texting contacts were true BBM contacts (I'd say between 15-20), I still don't see much value added. It seems you would need a ton of BBM contacts to make those apps worthwhile, and then you start to lose some of the value of BBM.

OoooooH, I need this app, would love for free! I use my bb timer all the time. A new type would be Awesome! Thanks Crackberry!

I could use this to time my 40 yard dash speed when my wife screems that its my turn to change the babys diapers.¤ Note to devs¤ please make my blackberry change diapers,I would surely sucribe to that app!

Though I already use the stopwatch and timer on my BB the "down-repeat" mode is something I've always wished it could do. So I'd likee this if not for that alone!

I'd use this for timing my parking meter. It really is difficult to keep track of how much time is left.

This looks like a cool app to keep track of time. It's surprising how frequently situations arise where a timer would come in handy.

This is a nice app to take the simple idea of a stopwatch and make it so much more useful. Good luck to all and thanks CB.

Thanks for the giveaway.

Appreciate if you could count me in.
I will be using for lectures & presentations and my studies.

Thanks,
Grr
