A timer with a twist (or two):
(1) Lock screen operation for quick access via a lock screen notifications (Android 5.0+ Lollipop+) or lock screen widgets (Android 4.2 Jelly Bean to 4.4 KitKat).
(2) Periodic alarms remind you to check/turn the food while it counts up the total cooking time.
Of course it can time more things than cooking.
Requires few permissions.
No network access. No ads. No data gathering.
Simple and focused.
• Android 5.0+ (Lollipop+): While BBQ Timer is running or paused, you can operate it from the lock screen and the pull-down notification. If the Timer is stopped, just tap the Pause or Play button within the app, or the Play button in the home screen widget, or the timer text in either place.
• On Android 4.2 Jelly Bean to 4.4 KitKat, place the BBQ Timer widget on your lock screen for quick access.
• The widget also works on the home screen.
• To stretch out the widget to show longer durations, long-press it then drag its resize handles.
• To remove the widget, long-press it then drag it onto “X Remove”.
• Tap the stopwatch time display to cycle between stopped → running → paused → stopped.
• Within the app, tap the checkbox to turn periodic reminder alarms on/off.
