Seven tools in one convenient to use package. Since my cellphone is pretty basic I don't have many of these "extra" features to pull out and use immediately - but now I do. The calculator and the calendar are obvious choices for a package like this and they do the job. The calculator doesn't have scientific functions, just the basics but you can add notes to the calendar. The stopwatch and timer are fine but the stopwatch only has hours, minutes, seconds - so don't expect precision timing.

My favorite tool is the unit converter and the world clock is great for knowing when friends and family members around the country are available or in bed. A notepad rounds out the list for jotting down grocery lists and reminders. There aren't many bells and whistles in this app but if you just need the basics it's great.

This is a nifty toolkit with several basic applications. It's easy to use and is not pretentious. The calculator has the four basic functions and allows simple parenthetical expressions. The stopwatch is in whole seconds not fractions of seconds. The countdown timer works fine, but one has to keep an eye on it since it does not sound an alert--just flashes a message that the countdown has finished. The converter has a limited range of equivalents between metric and other measurements. The one conversion factor that is missing is one for area. Otherwise it's not too bad. Considering how little this costs it's a bargain.

Just what I needed for my Paperwhite. Have wanted something like this for a long time. My Fire HDX spoiled me with it's basic apps like this but I couldn't find (until now) what I wanted. I read in bed a lot and the Paperwhite is the absolute best for reading under difficult lighting with no eyestrain so this is a very welcome addition to it. To me it's worth a lot more than I paid for it. =)

as stupid as that it has a count down clock without an audible alarm. also if you try to read while it's running you lose the countdown function. Useless. many utilities that are good for nothing

This is the only application for the KIndle that I know which includes a real time clock. I don't use it often but its nice that it's there. It includes international times as well. The stopwatch and count-down timer are neat too. I have calendars and notebooks in other applications. The notebook is a little confusing to me but I don't need it. If you want a lot of tools in one place, this could be a great app.

It is not really the scheduler I was looking for. I have been able to add times to my calendar items, though. I also am getting some use out of the notepad. The rest is interesting, but not useful. My Paperwhite has no speakers, so the timer is very limited.
