This is a tool I need for my new boardgame youtube channel.. If it already exists, let me know, save me some time.

Here's the simple idea:

  • You start the app and it just shows a the current time running forward and a list of time stamped items.
  • It should show a simple set of buttons that you can customize the labels of.
  • You push a button and it simply adds an item with that current timestamp and the label for the button.

That's it.

You can imagine the purpose of this tool -- it's to help you very quickly and with minimal interaction note things that happen while you are engaged in some activity, so that you can review the log later.

So imagine I have my phone sitting next to me while filming something, I might add buttons to make notes of when certain things happen that I want to edit later, etc.

So a key feature is the making of cusotm buttons so it's just one click to add an entry with a certain description.

Do you mean something like a stopwatch with a Lap function, but instead of a single button to mark a lap, you have a choice of customizable buttons for multiple events?  If so, try looking in the Play Store for 'event logger' or 'action logger'.  It lists several.  Sanity check - I haven't tried any.
