    Hi there,

    I am looking for a stopwatch app that can make a beep sound every, say, X minutes. Once start doing something, that app helps me to be constantly reminded of the life's minutes passing, and thus, I would manage my time more effectively!
    ANY IDEA? ANY APP?

    Please note that I'm not looking for a timer app, HIIT app, any countdown app or things like that!

    Cheers!

    So you need something that beeps every x minutes? I could write something like that for you using Tasker...

    Thank you so much! It's simple and works well. I've just started using it. If any problem comes up, I'll let you know.

    Thank you again! :)

    You stop it by clicking UNLOAD in your notifications.

    The UNLOAD is in the NOTIFICATIONS area. I have to use a permanent notification in order to prevent the app being unloaded by Android's memory management.

    Anyway, I made a new version (1.6) with an UNLOAD button on the main form. Try this one instead, it will also look better on a screen with higher resolution than the one I created it on, which was only 720p.
