Add a timer app, stopwatch and a built in audio recorder

Please add a built in timer and a stopwatch app or get it integrated with the current Alarms app.

Also please add a system app for recording audio instead of having to depend on a 3rd party app for it.

        Actually, there is one in the windows phone market developed by microsoft moble (then nokia moble).

        With Windows 10 for phone this problem will finally be solved, it's been a long wait.

        Would be happy if they just brought over the Alarm /stopwatch/timer from the PC windows 8.1. Works well and is good to look at

        I love the new alarm app and sound recorder in Win. 10 for phones. However, I still wish it could record calls.

        Btw, Microsoft has released a new Alarm app for windows 10, which has alarm+timer+stopwatch+worldclock. It'd definitely be coming to phones as that's universal.

        Recorder is still missing, along with a universal ms paint app.
        But till then 'perfect recorder' is quite useful.

        I think they should also add the ability to uninstall pre installed apps that I don't use, Such as "Podcasts" "Wallet" and "FM Radio" I rarly use them, and its kinda annoying seeing them all the time. I can see not being able to uninstall "contacts" and "phone" because its something that just plain cant be uninstalled. But I'd like to see an uninstall button on Podcasts and FM Radio, I don't use them.

        Also, Cortana needs the ability to add a true timer, not an alarm.

        Also, alarms are frustrating on Cortana as you can quickly reach a limit of the number of alarms you have set up. Perhaps having alarms set up via Cortana be 'self-destructing' would be one way of mitigating this, as well as separating out timers and making it much easier to delete alarms en masse.

        These apps should be universal between Windows and Windows Phone. If well done, the ability to *optionally* have shared timers, alarms across devices could be very cool. It would need to be optional though, especially with alarms.

        Biggest thing for me is that this application: (1) is not interrupted by reminders while recording (very frustrating when trying to record something longer) and (2) that the files are unobfuscated for easier access and by default are backed up to OneDrive. The app likely should just create a SoundRecorder or Recordings file in Documents/Music on OneDrive for easy access on any device by any application. The current requirement to email to share or stand losing all of your files upon a refresh is very broken.

        A good Voice Recorder will be very useful like for recording lectures or seminars or presentations. Thank you.

        It would be great if you can add in a Calculator into Windows 10 Phone as well.
