Price History of ChessClock

Description of ChessClock

My original iOS Chess Clock from 2008 is back... in all its old-school Skeuomorphic glory!  Two clocks. Tap one to start the other counting down. Tap both to stop both. Tap the little clock icon to set the time, and the info button to change the settings. Chess Clock includes features found in competition chess clocks, including Fischer, Bronstein, and USCF ("Simple") delay modes, which work in both digital and the visually appealing analog mode. Also, since this version was rewritten entirely within the borders of Switzerland, I guess this might be the cheapest Swiss timepiece you can have. Features: • Analog flag movement that swings back and forth as it falls (which took me a silly amount of time to get right, but I like it) • Set each clock independently • Analog and digital modes • Adjustable time delay (Bronstein, Fischer, and USCF modes) • Highlights the currently running clock

Reviews of ChessClock

  • It just boggles the mind

    I fail to understand why the concept of a simple chess clock is so hard for any develop to implement competently. Seriously. It's. A. Timer.

    And yet, of about the three features that this one does, it fails spectacularly in one of them: setting a custom time. If you try to change the time using the standard iPhone number dials and click save... nope. Doesn't work. There's no way to change the time using the dials (for anyone interested, I actually did end up trying to press cancel to see if the labels on the buttons were reverse but that didn't work either).

    It really makes you wonder if some of these developers have opened their app a single time.
  • New version is good

    Any chance you could make the touch area bigger for switching turns easier?

    Newest version broke the timers accuracy. The tenths of a second doesn't work now
  • Nice application, but please add penalty time

    The application works well. Both the analog and digital interfaces look fine, although they could use slightly larger displays. It's easy to change the time limits, and it's nice to have a game timer in my pocket all the time. However, I really hope that the developer adds an option to have the timers continue to run after time has expired. In chess it doesn't matter, but scored games, like Scrabble have point penalties for every minute over, not an automatic loss. That feature would make the clock usable in a greater variety of games, and it seems like it would be simple to implement. Otherwise, nice app at a nice price. __________________ UPDATE ADDED SINCE ORIGINAL REVIEW I had been using the digital timer almost exclusively, but the analog timer DOES have the feature I sought. I'd still like it implemented for the digital timer, but Scrabble (and other games) players can use this timer and keep track of penalty time.
