For example:
Bomb A: 10 minutes
Bomb B: 20 minutes

If we disarm Bomb A using 4 minutes, i.e. there are 6 minutes left, how should we set the timer for Bomb B?
1) 20 minutes (regardless of previous bomb(s)); or
2) 26 minutes (add the remaining time of previous bomb(s)); or
3) 16 minutes (start both timers at the same time)

16 minutes, both timers start at the beginning of the game. When not using the app, I just set a ten minute timer. If we defuse the first bomb in time, we continue playing, and when the timer beeps I restart it.

(Meaning it beeps once at the 10 minute mark, then gets restarted for another 10 minute countdown and will beep again at the 20 minute mark).

Thank you for the quick response!
I don't have an iOS device so I'm not using the App, thus I have this question after reading the rulebook.

we had the same question when playing the game for the first time...

The time mentioned in the mission-book is cumulative. Example for Mission 1: the first bomb will detonate in 8 minutes from start of play. The second bomb will detonate in 16 minutes from start of play.

An Android version of the app is now available in the Google Play store, btw.

It's called TMG Bomb Squad Timer for those, like me, that are having a hard time locating it.
