So, I got a Droid, which for me, meant that I had to start learning the Android SDK. In my opinion, the best way to learn something like this is to write an application. It's how Exaile and JBother came to be, and now, it's how SupaCount came to be.
I've always wanted a countdown application that would allow you to run more than one countdown at a time, and save them for later use, so that's exactly what SupaCount does. You can save multiple countdowns, and run any number of them at the same time. When a countdown is done, you can have it alert you, optionally by blinking the LED, vibrating, and playing a notification ringtone. You can specify how long the alarm will last before it stops on it's own (to save your battery).

I decided to publish it here before I publish it to the market. It uses the Apache 2.0 OpenSource License. Here are download options, should you be interested:
- SupaCount.apk Installable apk. This is now on the Android Market. You can pick it up from there.
- http://github.com/synic/SupaCount - the sourcecode.
