TikTok Timer for Palm

I recently needed a stopwatch at work, and forgot that my cell phone had that built in.  So I went looking for one for the Palm.   What I found is way better than just a stopwatch!

The TikTok Timer for Palm is, as the developer’s web site says, “…a simple, no nonsense, timer utility for a Palm OS device…”.  It does multiple countdown and count-up (stopwatch) timers simultaneously, with an easy to use interface.  It isn’t new software (most recent revision is 2006), but I don’t care as long as it works!  And it does.

The most negative thing I’ve found about it so far is that after TikTok Timer fires an alarm from a countdown timer, the Palm takes a while (5-10 seconds) to begin responding to keys and stylus taps again.

It is very easy to support a GTD 2 minute action timer, by pre-defining a 2 minute countdown timer and setting it so you don’t get stuck Doing a long action when you’re supposed to be Processing.  I’ve set up mine with 2, 5, and 15 minute timers predefined, and finding it very useful.

I’m using a Palm Z22, it ought to work on any earlier Palm, and many later ones.  Give it a try if you’re in need of a timer!
