Best chess clock out there

:
Let's be honest... it's not hard to make a device with a microprocessor into a timer. That's a no-brainer. At a functional level, this game clock is as good as any other. It has all the common timing modes (sudden death, chess increments, go timing, etc.) that all the other game clocks have.

So what sets this apart from the others? Two things. They're small things, and they're trivial to write in to any clock program... but for some reason, nobody else has except the Board Game Timer folks. Those two things are:

1. The "buttons" light up according to whose turn it is. This is nice for spectators who are joining the game midway through, or just want to see (from a distance) whose move it is. It's also nice for players to get an *easy* visual confirmation that they hit the clock. (I know, I know... you could verify you hit your clock by making sure your opponent's timer starts to run. But that's too much work, particularly in a time scramble.)

2. The players' remaining time is displayed "horizontally" at the same orientation, rather than vertically facing each player. This makes it easy to see how much time your opponent has left. It's as if the folks who wrote all the other game clocks have never actually played a timed game in their lives, because it's infuriating look at your opponent's clock and see the number upside down. Again, this is particularly true in a time scramble. With your opponent's clock upside down, If your clock reads :10 and your opponent's reads :09, then for a split second you'll wonder how the hell he ended up with 60 seconds. You don't want those distractions in a time scramble.

So, overall... great app. Best out there. And the price is right.

4/5 stars

This works great!

:
I think this is a great app. Really straight forward easy to use. A couple suggestions to make it better. The start/stop/reset buttons need to be bigger, the iPad screen is large for a reason, take advantage of that! The popup message to go back to the main screen is annoying, but I understand the point. Also different sound options would be nice.
Over all still great!
