Clock app requires timers support from the platform

Bug Description

Similar to alarms, the clock app requires the platform to wake up and notify the user when a timer is complete. The clock app cannot do this by itself since it would be suspended as per the app life cycle policies.

Clock App Timer design is tracked at bug 1427566.

Thanks Nekhelesh for reporting this, however this most likely will make it to UITK 1.3.

Any ETA on this? Not having a timer is quite annoying..

As we do not have any backend support/schedule for it, I cannot express any estimates. Perhaps this will fall into 16.04 timeframe, depends on how much time we have and whether we get support from platform. By platform I mean the new backend which omits the QtOrganizer/EDS middlemen. With QtOrganizer this would be a bit hard to implement so the timers are not mixed with alarms.
