Solid chess timer

A really nice timer for casual games with your friends. I like the ability to save your own preset times, so you can play your favorite time easily. A great alternative to an analog or electric chess timer. I would definitely pay money for this app. The only thing I would have liked to see is a sound cue for the end of the game. Overall, a very solid chess timer.

Missing one feature

Great app and the price is right. One tweak would make it even better for Tournament Scrabble, which allows 25 minutes per player, then imposed a 10 point penalty for every minute (or fraction) they go over. The option to count up after counting down to 0:00 would be great.

Pretty Good

This is what I’ve been looking for. I really didn’t want to spend $25-$30 on a digital chess clock and this serves as a perfect alternative. I tried a couple of time settings (30 min and 15-10 split). It worked as expected. Thanks for this app.!! 👍🏻
