Review: The Time Machine By MMMOOO

August 14, 2009 | By | Add a Comment


This is about having the time of your life in your hands. We live in a hustle and bustle world, always on the go. Calendar works fine, but I know many of us use a countdown clock on our computers, our websites, etc. Time Machine is similar to that. It keeps track of time to the second.

I was really curious over the app when I first read about it. MMMOOO always has such neat and unique innovative apps, and very useful. Time Machine is no different. The app’s features include the following:

1. You can see how many days you have lived, nowadays time, and time passed ratio for today and this year.
2. You can input your own name and birthday with format: YYYYMMDD, e.g. 19801201. or according to the system setting.
3. You can add or delete your customized event with event details and event date. The event date should be future time.
After the installation finishes, you can now find Time Machine in downloads or main menu

I tested this app out on my BlackBerry Tour 9630. The Time Machine is $4.99 and can be purchased from the BlackBerry Sync Store. After purchase it is downloaded as a zip file for your pc. Make sure you extract all the files and place them where you can find them. I always use the desktop. You install the app to the phone using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. It installs quite quickly. I installed the app and did a battery pull.

The app is found as a capital black T on an orange/yellow box, outlined in black. The Activating it was easy since the pin was placed in at time of purchase and the app automatically finds your pin when you press the trackball to acknowledge registering it. Then it allows you to put in your name and your date of birth. From then on, the clock starts running showing you how long you’ve lived so far in years, months, days, hours, minutes, and down to the very seconds.

What I really like is you can add events in there too, such as an upcoming birthday, special occasion, even appointments. Q brings up the menu or the left option on the screen and P is Back or the right option on the screen, and the BlackBery Key or trackball is for the center option on the screen. In Menu you have: My Information which is where you put in your name and birthdate; Event Edit where you can put dates of what you want to keep track of; Help which tells you what the app does and how to control it. It has three pages for help, mainly explaining why and how of the app. About Us brings up the company, their moto “Enrich Your Mobility”, and the email address and blog web address.

I found the app easy to use. For the price it’s really a neat way to keep track of time and makes it a fun conversation piece as well. The Time Machine main screen is black and grey with the orangy color and white for the wording. When looking at the home page it says: Time Machine, then your name below, and “Yes! I have lived for” and the years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds displayed below it,  then the date below that displayed the same way, the Events listed befow that and running meters as time keeps moving.  Below Menu, Event list, and Quit are listed below that.

In rating, the graphics and the display are nice so I give that five stars. The app does exactly what it states, so it gets five stars for that. The price is really nice, and for what it includes, definitely five stars. I can see this app appealing to many people who like to manage time, or even keep track of events in the months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds.
