Nice app. I like the combination of countdown and chronograph.

One thing though, can the numbers be spaced out enough that the whole display does not shift as the numbers change?

Unfortunately, even the BBSerifFixed font is not fixed in width when it comes to numbers. And the System font only has 1 size.

Nice app. Stupid question.. is there a way of "quitting" out of the program short of having to switch to another program?

Edit.. lol nevermind.

Unhappy

Doesn't work for me. I get HTTP Error 406: Not Acceptable
details: 200: Application can not accept the content [text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor]. I get this when I use the URL above in my BB browser.

I downloaded chronograph.jar, extracted the files, created an ALX file for it and tried to use Blackberry Desktop Manager - Application Loader. No go. I get some error about not being signed properly.

I'm running 4.1.0.268 on a 7250.

Too bad it sounds like the feature set I'm looking for.

Are you sure you are using the Internet browser, not the WAP browser on your BlackBerry?

If you are to try the desktop manager (ie your carrier or admin disabled the real browsers), forget about the jar file. It is an outdated dummy file. The .cod is the real thing and it is referenced by the .jad file.

Great App. I look forward to your next version.

Here are a few suggestions.

The volume on the alarm needs to be ajustable. I cannot hear the alarms very well.

I would like to see the Countdown timer automatically convert to the Chronograph without stopping. This would be quite useful for sailing races.

It might also be usefull to put a "pause" button in the countdown timer.

One or two more alerts would be nice.

In regards to accuracy; perhaps there is a way you can give an option to automatically turn off the date / time update feature (Date/Time Source) so that the timer can be more accurate.

I notice that you do take it down to 100ths in the log. However, with age and the inconvenience of reading glasses, it would also be nice to display the 100ths on the main timer. For the same reason, it would also be nice if the main "lap time" display held the value for 3 seconds before rejoining the next lap in progress.

There should be a hide function on the menu though the alt escape function does allow for the same flexibility.


Super work, I can use this for sailing and my son's swim meets.

Thanks for the feedback..
1, I will try if I can fix the volume.. I think I am using 80% already.
2, The stop button really means pause..
3, You can hit ESC button twice quickly to hide the app ;)
4, I will see what I can do for the other requested functions

You da man!

Default Graceful exit

I am using a T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl v4.2.0.64 and when I try to exit by pressing the escape key (or even the Menu key) I get the following error: Uncaught exception:net.rim.device.api.system.ControlledAcce ssException. I'm assuming that wasn't the plan. Otherwise it looks good.
