About this game

Replace your chess clock with this free game timer! It's easy to use, yet fully featured to handle any time control. 100% free: no in-app purchases, no ads!

Choose your time control and you're ready to play. The 2nd player presses her button to start the 1st player's clock - and the game is on!

FEATURES
- Large, easy-to-read buttons
- Works in landscape and portrait on all devices
- Quickly customize the app for one-tap access to all your favorite time controls
- Time controls include base minutes per player and optional per-move delays or bonus time. The app supports both Fischer and Bronstein increments, as well as simple delays. The duration is up to you!
- Supports multiple-stage time controls commonly seen in tournaments, such as "40 moves in 2 hours + game in 60 minutes." A glance at the clock shows your current stage!
- Clock pauses automatically if the app is interrupted; manually pause the clock at any time
- Pleasant sounds for buttons and "time's up" alert

At Chess.com, we really do love chess, and *sometimes* we even play it offline! For times like that, we created this clock - and we hope you love it as much as we do.

I was hoping there would be an app for it and this is by far the best one as you can sit your phone parallel with the chess board and I had the best Thanksgiving playing with my niece. So satisfying about the entire ritual of seeing your clock start making your move then starting the timer on your opponent. the colors are great there are countless timing options and completely customizable ones for rapid chest or for teaching and the audible click and smooth response are most satisfying. 5+

Clean and easy UI, but a few shortcomings. Serious : getting to settings is baffling alot of users since it is not intuitive. (I very much appreciate it, once I got that you must rotate screen to see settings cogwheel button.) Second, please add way to start with a handicap for one player, I e different amount of times for the two players.

This Chess timer is really solid I prefer it's layout to most others on the app store. But it does lack one feature which I think is pretty key which is asymmetrical timers. I often play against less experienced players and like using asymmetrical timers to make play more balanced. Because of this I have to turn to other timers like the Magnus Chess Timer despite preferring this one. Other than that I think it's a great app and hope they'll add the few features it's missing to make it perfect
