Default Application Idea That I'd Love! Usage Timer

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all developers, I was thinking of a great application:
One feature that I liked about the iphone is that it let me know how long the device was actually "on" and out of standby. It allowed me to really see how long my battery was lasting.

I tried looking for an application for my blackberry to see if I could keep track how long I actually ... fool around with my phone, I'd imagine a great many hours every day, but I'd like to keep track.

Is there an application out there? Or is there a plan to develop it?

Thanks,
K.

If you key in Alt E A C E, you will see an info screen that has an "uptime" entry. This reports phone uptime in seconds. Is this what you're after?

No, like the iphone diferenciated between Standby and Active. Active time is when the screen is actually ON. So the addition between Standby and Active = Uptime. But what i'm interested in knowing is how many hours (or minutes) of the day I am ACTUALLY USING my device since my last battery recharge. It's not an important app, but it really gave me an idea of how much I used my iphone. I thought that my BB would kick it's ass Let's see how long the Bold lasts! hehe.
