Bug Description

I use the timer many times a day to time a socces game :). When I wanted to set a alarm to wake me up in the morning using the core clock app, I noticed many old alarms still available . Those turned out to be created by the timer app.

When a timer has lapsed, could it be removed from the alarms?

About this bug: currently the timer alarms are removed from the clock when you click "Okay" button on the "Time's up!" screen. Due to system API limitation I wasn't able to find better way to do that. So if a timer has lapsed and you don't click "Okey" but just close the app, the timer alarm stays in the clock alarms list. If something will change in the API, I'll try to fix it somehow.

Ah. Thai explains IT. Right be a good idea to mention this when setting a
new timer.

Keep up the good work, it looks great.
