Does anyone have an app replacement for the Wok Timer? It is so quiet we have a hard time hearing it.

The Golden Camel UberBadge is a mystery. Nobody knows where it came from or how it got there.

I got a replacement timer from them, and that one I can hear. I had the same problem as you.

My "timer app" is a sand timer, but you can't hear it.

Argh... do I even bother trying to get a replacement or just try to find a digital timer I can reset quickly? The damned thing was being drowned out by a TV on a low volume setting, how is it supposed to be sufficient in the heat of Wok'ing?

The Stronghold Games Timer App has a generic timer you can use, seems to work pretty well. There is no ticking sound, but there is a ticking/warning sound each second once the countdown reaches the 10 second mark.

Ok, I played this again last night, and the stronghold timer really doesn't work great.

So, I decided to just make an app myself. I threw this together in a few hours, so it's pretty rough graphics-wise. I only have an android phone (S5), so for now it's just for android. (Unity can publish to iOS as well)

EDIT: It's been submitted to the play store, and is now available there.

So in order to install, you need to allow apps from unknown sources. (Usually this is not advised, since in theory you could install malicious apps. If you're worried, please wait until I get it on the Play store)

It's a simple app, has countdown sounds, 15, 20, 30 second options, an event pause and resume button , and next customer button. That's about it.

Disclaimer: I made this app in like 2 hours, so I'm not responsible for it making your phone explode, high blood pressure, divorce, etc.

Edit: Updated the app again, Tim was kind enough to provide some art and sound assets! - at this point I think it's a pretty serviceable app. I'll continue to tweak and work on it.

If you use it, please let me know how you like it, bugs, etc. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I just opened up my Wok Star from the kickstarter (2nd edition) to bring it to gaming, and it was so quiet I couldn't hear it at home (while I was by myself). I'll submit a replacement part and I'll post up to see how it goes. Hopefully they can still replace these timers. Fingers Crossed.
