Hi,
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+)
Category: Tools
Market: market://details?id=org.amphiprion.gametimer
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.

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

Nice!

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.

Thanks!
