Adobe AIR Stopwatch

Stopwatch

I’ve just built a handy stopwatch Adobe AIR app. Basically, it is a simple timer with Hrs:Mins:Secs.Ms, Start, Pause, Continue and Reset. The number of times I have needed a simple timer like this and havn’t had one, so I decided to build one myself. I’ve used Adobe AIR so that it installs on your system like any other application and is also cross-platform.

Here is the Flash movie of it …

And you can install the AIR file from here and here is a version that uses SWFObject to embed the install badge.

The source files are available here.

Adobe AIR Marketplace

It is also available for download from the Adobe AIR Marketplace.

UPDATE 26/08/2008: Simple Stopwatch 1.0 has been selected by Softpedia for inclusion on their website.

    Although i have adobe AIR running on my system (beta only for linux as yet) together with both twhirl and market samurai, your site says “adobe air is not available for your system” and refuses to give me the download. Is it possible to go to an actual download page, rather than this stupid and incorrect nanny (which i know is not your fault)

    Hi Tiggsy,

    Weird. Here is a direct link for the .air file itself.

    I was just about to make one in Air myself, but then I stumbled across yours. Thanks for the great app, this will come in very handy for me.
