I've been sitting on the iOS version for a month, but I wanted to release the Android and iOS versions simultaneously. So during my free time I finally got the Android app working last night. I'll probably release both of them Friday afternoon this week. I'm not sure what the iOS link will be yet.
It's certainly not the greatest idea for an app, but it's simple. So that's why I'm not charging anything for it. The main reason I made it was to see how hard it is to create one app across two platforms using native code for both. On iOS I used Swift, and on Android I got it working from Gingerbread 2.3 and up, so it even works on my awful Droid Charge which Samsung never updated.
The answer is, it was not that hard finishing it. In fact I think it was easier than learning how to work around some framework that magically supports multiple platforms. There were certainly tricky things I had to do on both platforms to get the timers to update every 1/10th of a second on your screen while not dragging the performance down and draining your battery.
Let me know if you try it out, email me all the things you didn't like about it!

I really like the illustration of 'there', 'here', and 'where' with a common ending. That's a great way to explain it to people.
Whenever someone gives up and thinks I can solve something because I'm "smart" that they can't, it frustrates me trying to convince them they could do it. I'm not trying to be humble, I honestly believe you can learn anything. With one exception, if you don't put some effort into it then you can not learn anything. So turn that sentence into a positive one, "If you do put some effort into it then you can learn anything."
