New features: Background image. Time adjust. Optional informational text.

Start Clock is used to individually start runners/skiers/bikers in a race, e.g. in an orienteering competition. Start Clock beeps on the countdown seconds (e.g. 55, 56, 57, 58, and 59) and then beeps even more on the go second. There is an optional pre-warning beep (e.g. 10 seconds before start).

Start interval can be chosen from 15 seconds to 2 minutes, and the number of countdown beeps can be selected from none to five. There are six start sounds to choose from.

Start Clock can alternatively show call-up time, usually 3 minutes ahead of start time (customisable in Preference menu).

Start Clock works on both phones and tablets. It automatically adapts the size of the text (start time, alternatively call-up time) to fill the screen. There is a full screen mode.

Start Clock can have a picture as a background image. Use a photo, the logo of the club or prepare a custom background picture. Text colour and background colour can be changed. A blinking reminder can be displayed (optional, position and size of text can be changed).

Time can be adjusted to align with the timing system (e.g. 0.7 seconds), or to postpone the start with e.g. an hour (offset time one hour backwards, -3600 seconds).

Start Clock contains no advertisements. It needs read access to external storage to show the background picture. No other permissions are required.

Hint: Activate Flight Mode on your phone/tablet to prevent incoming calls from interrupting Start Clock.

    Almost perfect. Would welcome to have an option to set up own start time independent of the phone time.

    It would be nicer if there were more start intervals available (ie. 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120 seconds) and even a 10 second warning beep.
