[Silver plan] Use the chronometer as stopwatch

You can use the chronometer component as a simple stopwatch.

I personally would build my own stopwatch with a clock component and a text label.

Because the chronometer component is really very simple and you can not change much except standard items.


Below this snippet i created a simple stopwatch without the chronometer component.

The free & silver plan uses the api level 2.3+

The new gold plan with the material design look uses the api level 4+


Which means that the apps that were built over the free or silver plan run at a mobile phone with at least android 2.3

For the gold plan created apps you need at least a mobile phone with android 4.
