Hi. I’ve uploaded an iPhone/iPad app to the Apple App Store. It will keep track of the players’ thinking time. There are seven timing controls available including byo yomi, Fischer, Canadian and others. The app is free for the next two months. Then goes up to a whopping $1.39 (Canadian). Get it while it’s free. Any suggestions and comments are welcome.
Oh, I’m very sorry, probably just didn’t scroll enough after searching … found it and d’loaded.
Just played around a bit with it … would it be possible somehow to add the players colours somehow? Maybe as an option with radio buttons whether playing Chess or Go, as the first player’s colour results from which game is played?
Hi. Glad you found it. Yes, that is possible and I’ll look into that. One thing for me to consider is that the app can be used for other games besides go and chess, backgammon or cards for example, that don’t necessarily use black and white.
I’m surprised that the sound is audible even with phone loudness set to zero (mute). Also it’s quite loud.
I’d also like to be able to mute the “bip” while still keeping voice countdown.
Another thing: the “return “ button is just above the type selection and it’s sometimes difficult for me to hit it. Don’t know if it’s fault of my device, but it switches to Bronstein instead of coming back to the timer. I have to be very careful on where I tap to be able to come back to the timer.
Also, I just checked and my iPhone 6 does the same thing. That is, the sound does go up and down if I use the buttons, but when I mute the speaker in the control centre, the sound is not muted. However, there is a “mute” button in the app that will mute the sound entirely. I like the idea of a turning the sound off except for the countdown as on option.
