    Hi folks,

    I'm not a developer, but I have 2 ideas for apps. I'm spec'ing out the ideas for an NDA that i'll have some local developer sign to figure out if my ideas are worthy :)

    One of them includes the ability to set a timer for an alarm to go off.
    Is the clock feature from the iphone available in the SDK. I haven't dloaded the SDK yet b/c i'm a dolt when it comes to programming and I don't want to pay for something I don't know how to use.

    Hope my question is clear enough. I sure wish I know how to code.

    Cheers,
    Keebler

    You can set timers and get the current time and date pretty easily - It's a trivial programming task really. The issue is that you can only run one app at a time and your program would end if the user got a phone call or did anything else so the timer would not then go off.
