    I've stumbled upon a very cool smart-phone app that facilitates my film developing process.

    Read my review of this great little application, on my PhotoBLOG, here.

    The "Darkroom Timer" app doesn't seem to be in the Android Marketplace any more. Can anyone give a hint how I might access it otherwise?

    It still is in Market. I found it right away. (Darkroom Timer, by Chicken of the Web)

    I'm wondering if there are geographic or national restrictions to the Android Market. When I search the Market, I get the response:

    "There are no matches in Android Market for the search: Darkroom Timer"

    I also tried downloading a link from one of the websites that serves as a portal to the Android Market. That site has a listing for the software, and I followed the instructions there, and an email with the link arrived on my phone, but when I selected it, I received a similar "not found" message.

    FWIW, my phone is a fairly new model - a Samsung GT-I5500M

    If I recall correctly, all Android devices are identical, so yes.

    How about a good old fashioned metronome? Keeps both of your hands free to work on the print exposure.

    The application is intended for film development.
