Seriously? I've tried plenty, they're all bad!
I simply wish a timer that would work like a proper timer: I set it, lock the screen, and it's beeps when time's up. So it has to run under the lockscreen and wake the phone up, but so far I haven't find one that do that, for some reasons.

Did you try "Stopwatch" (the one with a black stopwatch icon)? It is a counter and a timer. It also beeps while the phone is locked and time expires. Not sure if it illuminates the screen from standby though.

I can't find a good kitchen timer app. Features I need:
- Should count up, not down
- Should support 4 to 6 timers running at once
- Should not allow phone to suspend
The closest I've found is "Stopwatch v1.1" by MOCO Development Company, but the lockscreen still pops over the top of it, requiring me to swipe the phone with my grubby hands while cooking.
Edit: Looks like there are more since I last looked, "Cooking Timer Pro" seems to do exactly what I want (only 3 timers though, which is fine). Does what the original poster wants, also.

Supertimer can run under the lockscreen, disable the lockscreen, and supports 3 countdown timers on the same screen. I have not used all these features though, so I make no claim to their true function. Just going by the options screen.

Which would you guys recommend for a guy who needs to time himself at the gym? It's mainly when I do planks. I used to stare at my Android clock app and let the stop watch continue until I was done or switched positions.
