I made a Game Timer for Android, highly inspired of the CUBE DGT
V1.1.3 - 17/03/2011
Name: Game Timer (android 1.5+)
Web Market: https://market.android.com/details?id=org.amphiption.gametim...
Language: French, English
This application is a timer allowing you to track elapsed time from 1 to N players. Here the different kind of supported timers :
1. Game timer : decrease total game time by player.
2. Move timer : decrease turn time by player.
3. Move timer + save : decrease turn time by player. Unused time is added to the next player's turn.
4. Upcount : add elapsed time by player.
5. Turn counter : track the number of played turns by player.
Incoming update: Several updates will be available in a week or two, like different time limit per player (handicap), automatic turn change, etc.

The new 1.2.0 version is available with:
- Enhance color chooser, allowing to drag your finger for a better accuracy
- Allow to pause the time by turning face down your phone
- Each player can have a different amout of time
- Add a warning message when stoping the timer
- The entire setup activity if now scrollable
This sounds awesome. You plan on making anything for iOS?
No version for iOS by me. Sorry
Version 1.3.0 available
Full rework of the timing screen (according Lindsay Markus proposition):
- Allow to define player positions around the table.
- Allow to see timer of all players
- Allow to select directly a player for a new turn
- Add buttons for clockwise and anti-clockwise turn
Can I make a few suggestions?
1) After the timer goes off it's a bit of a whimper...just a small bong. Anything more forceful and ongoing - like an alarm clock?
2) I like the way one can create presets for games (or groups). Perhaps you can include the option of removing an individual/character from a preset for a session, as well having the option for DELETING him outright?
That way it's more versatile for fluctuations in gaming groups and saves having to manually re-enter with changes.
3) Perhaps have the option of a audible 10 second countdown? Blips or notes for this would be fine.
