NEW YORK, NEW YORK, Dec 6, 2006 -- Conduits Technologies, Inc. announced
today the release of Timekeeper 2.0 for Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC and
Smartphone. Timekeeper is a customizable high precision multi-function stopwatch with session tracking and data export capabilities.
Timekeeper offers myriad features and four modes of use: Count down/stop,
Count down/repeat, Count down/up, and Count up. Every mode allows the user
to implement a customized skin to complement the activity at hand, and add
up to 32 independent timers. Also included are decorative skins to further
personalize a timer, adding dynamic designs to activities as common as
running a lap, boiling an egg, clocking a chess match, or timing a race.
Each timer will display all functions necessary to customizing a timer, such
as indicating the exact amount of time to measure, preset times for
ease-of-use, and on/off to stop or start a timer. Also available are
functions to start, stop or reset all timers simultaneously. When a timer
concludes, Timekeeper will alert the user with a flashing display and
audible alert, and turn on the device if necessary. All sounds are
configurable by the user.
When timers are ascending, laps may be marked and counted. New for
Timekeeper 2.0, all lap information, as well as start/stop times, are
automatically kept for all timers and are reviewable at a later date. These
"Timer Sessions" can be viewed for an individual timer, or for all the
timers at once. Session information can be exported to text format (for Word
Mobile), spreadsheet format (for Excel Mobile), or can be sent by email or
SMS, directly from Timekeeper.
Session times can be combined, and therefore be used to track performance
over time, track billing hours, or record a group of activities. For
example, timing a daily walk around the block over the course of a month
would produce 30 Sessions. Combining these, the user could see the total
times at a glance. By using a multi-timer interface, multiple athletes can
be tracked on an activity, as well as their performance over time.
Timekeeper supports and is bundled with user-configurable "Activities."
Activities organize groups of settings where the user can specify the skin,
timer modes, and preset times. For instance, choosing the "Cook Breakfast"
activity will load the kitchen-themed skin, set all the timers for Count
Down mode and several cooking times (for Eggs, Bacon, etc.), and also
populate the Countdown Preset Time display with other cooking times.
Timers can also function as mutually exclusive "pairs"; starting one timer
will stop the adjacent timer. This method is useful with the included Chess
skin, when users are clocking a chess match.
New for version 2.0 is the ability to map any button to various functions in
Timekeeper. A user can bind physical buttons to start, stop, lap, or reset
an individual timer. This is helpful to emulate a physical stopwatch.
Timekeeper skins now feature watch dials, and show the elapsed lap time on
the skin as well.
Timekeeper 2.0 is available for $9.95 from http://www.conduits.com. More
