Simple Countdown Timer

After creating the simple Egg Timer application, I made some changes to make it a little more flexible. The original Egg Timer was just a 1 or 2 minute timer that just showed the time elapsing. The new Countdown Timer does the same, but also adds 15 second and 10 second markers to the timer and allows for selection of different time periods.

I also made changes to a simple clock counter that I created. The original clock counter would count up from a specific time. I made a change to set it to count down or up. Adding the clock gives a better visual of how much time is left on the timer.

Things that I want to do are, add a sound alert when the timer is finished and possibly when the time hits the Yellow and Red markers. I would also like to add some sort of dial or knob to control the amount of time to count down. There should also be a control to determine the Yellow and Red time markers.
