Time editing issue

Happy user of Timelime.

There are two things that regularly irritate me in when editing timings.

1. Timing says 8AM-10AM. I actually worked until 5PM so I go to edit that field. I type in "5" and it immediately gets changed to "3". I know that you're pinning the time to the last hour of my workday 3AM in order to remain valid. However, I would argue in terms of usability, I JUST typed "5". That 5 should take precedence when resolving the system. I recommend that if changing the AM/PM marker of a time resolves the conflict that was just introduced by what the user types, and doesn't make the end<start, you should do that. It's the difference between magically doing the right thing and doing an irritating thing.

2. Adding a timing for a day that already has a timing and the minute starts at 01, rather than exactly at the end time of the prior timing for that day. 01 minutes is never the right guess for me and I doubt it is for many of your users. I'd say that without knowing more about your user or the way they work, you cannot make a better guess than the last end time.

Thanks for all your hard work. I'm looking forward to the iOS version.

    Oops. Sorry!

    I just noticed that for some reason Timelime hasn't been updating automatically and I was still using v1.2.4.

    v1.4.1 fixes #1 and makes a different guess for #2.
