    What a fantastic timer. Sometimes you find yourself playing real chess but don’t have a clock on hand. This fantastic app has many of the time options of a real check clock. The button size and readability is very good. The sound effects give it a real visceral feel of hitting a clock! Would be cool to add a vibrate when hit button too.

    Great for Backgammon Too!

    I wanted an app for playing backgammon, and this one fits the bill VERY nicely! Use is intuitive (although it took me a bit to figure how to program delays). Automatic pause feature upon interruption is an obvious nice touch for a clock that is connected to your mobile phone. Manual pause feature works well to manage game interruptions. Two additions I’d like to see: 1. A useful help/programming guide. 2. Visual countdown of the delay period. As it stands now, clock doesn’t begin counting down until full delay period has expired, then clock displays count down of reserve time consumed. A great little app for backgammon or chess players. Highly recommended!

    Excellent and easy to use chess timer

    A simple and intuitive user interface that works well. Some nice options for more advanced use. Totally free and no annoying advertisements. Tested on my iPad and iPhone using most recent IOS version. Thank you developers!

    Perfect chess timer

    This chess timer app is perfect for almost all situations. They have some pre set options, but they also allow you to customize your clocks for different variations. Easy on use, customize and great on battery life. Perfect easy chess clock for planned or unplanned games!!!

    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.!! 👍🏻

    5 stars chess timer

    Free, easy to use, with the ability to save your favorite time settings with a beautiful interface. I would allow this in even biggest tournaments xD

    Fine and Fischer Fine Clock

    A great clock, easy to use, easy to reset; enough of a “click” sound to notice but not distract; with clocks being so absurdly priced these days, this app is smart and effective. Cheers. —Mark

    Really intuitive!

    It's super easy to make custom time settings on this, and there are no overly complicated buttons, like in other chess clock apps. Definitely recommend.

  • By bricklypear

    My favorite timer

    Thank you for keeping this up to date! It’s my favorite and I will keep using it. It’s great and works well with my games with my friend who isn’t super phone savvy. Perfect!

  • By Wwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

    Use with other games

    We use this with other games like rumicube to add another dimension to it!!! What a blast!!! We put 5 min on the clock and add 2-5 sec per play to make it a blitz game

  • By Flambeau400

    Great Clock!

    Great clock with a lot of nice features. One small bug. Once you’ve made a time change in the Edit function of Settings, there’s no option to cancel. There are only two choices. Both options, “<Settings” and “Save”, store the change. You have to go back and manually undo the update that was made.

  • By bruce.hammerlee

    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.

  • By msalzge

    Good clock - just needs two things to be perfect

    1. Keep the other clock running when one side runs out of time. Double forfeits are possible under USChess rules. 2. Show a progress bar marking the delay time. Other than that, great product!

  • By Dissatisfied user 8897

    Only blitz games?

    I can’t figure out how to make the clock reset after each turn, it just pauses and then continues counting down. I want to give each player 1 minute per turn, but the clock doesn’t reset after each turn. Tried messing with the settings, but couldn’t get it to work. Very frustrating. EDIT: there is another app called “Chess Clock Plus” that does exactly what I want it to do (or close enough), and it is much more customizable.
